In this video I will tell you about the most common causes of stomach pain resulting from eating when your nervous system is in fight or flight mode, and what you can do to stop it.
- Eating before you are fully awake, or after sitting all day with no exercise causes your digestive system to become sluggish and not ready to handle a large amount of food.The solution is to start the day with 5-10 minutes of activity such as invigorating yoga before you eat, and at lunch take a 10 minute brisk walk before eating.
- Eating too quickly with not enough chewing. If you eat in the car or on the run and don’t chew each bite, your salivary amylase won’t kick in and your digestive process will not start ‘on time’ so your food ends up sitting undigested in your stomach without sufficient enzymes and acid to start breaking it down before it moves into your small intestine.The solution is to chew every bite of food 30 times before swallowing, appreciate the taste and texture of each bite, and before you even start eating, take 5 deep belly breaths with long exhales to put your body in a receptive mode to eat.
- Mixing more than 2 food groups, along with rich foods must be avoided if you have an already sensitized stomach. Avoid huge meals that mix more than 2 food groups and eat fruit on its own. Combining meat with grains and lots of fat can lead to massive indigestion, so it’s best to have more frequent smaller meals that combine only 2 food groups: eg. grains and veggies, meat and veggies, veggie omelet, or fruit salad on it’s own.
