Two easy ways to improve your overall digestion are thoroughly chewing your food and avoiding eating while under stress. Stress can upset our digestion by disrupting digestive secretions and the rhythmic contractions of the intestine that propel food through the digestive tract. Well-known methods of decreasing stress, such as physical exercise, meditation, yoga and tai chi, have been shown to produce significant improvements in digestive function. Getting enough sleep each night is also helpful for improving digestion.
