Think of holiday dinners, what is one of the first things that come to mind?

For most of us, it’s the abundance of food and the stomachache that usually follows. By limiting your portions you will not only avoid that stomachache but you will also significantly decrease the chances of heartburn or acid reflux.

This could be a tough one. Coffee is an obvious part of most people’s mornings and is a great afternoon pick-me-up; however, its health benefits are few and far between. Coffee and other caffeinated beverages are hard on your digestive health, as well as your esophagus. If you can’t turn it down entirely, try drinking a cup with food rather than on an empty stomach.

6. Manage your stress levels

In a world that is becoming more stressful every day, it is vitally important to your body’s health to take moments to clear your mind and calm your nerves.

Unhealthy levels of stress can severely impact digestive health – just think of how many people get nervous and have to use the bathroom! Exercise and meditation are some of the best outlets for stress.

If you keep these tips in mind, you will see a change for the better in the way your body reacts to food. You may even find a juicy apple to be just the trick to get you through the day, rather than that soda from the office vending machine.
