When ever we are sick it is natural that the first main system to get affected after immune system in our body is the digestive system. So, it becomes a bit difficult for the system to function normally and have chances of recovering fast when we take care of our body properly.
Here are some tips which will help your digestive system recover fast after a brief illness.
1. Time maintenance
In our busy day to day life it becomes difficult for us to maintain time properly and consume food on time. But, once when you are sick or recovering from sickness it is necessary for you to maintain time and consume food in exact intervals. This gives rest to your digestive system properly and also protects the inner line of stomach from acids which usually come out when we don't take food for long time and these forms gas inside our stomach which again is a problem for digestive system.
2. Take more liquids
It becomes difficult for the digestive system to digest hard food than liquids. So, take more number of liquids like soup, fruit juice, milk shakes etc. Liquids not only contain essential nutrients and vitamins but also the re-hydrate the body and maintain the water levels in the body. By taking more liquids one can have the best chances of recovering his digestive power fast.
3. Avoid intake of meat for some time
As a known fact meat is a rich source of protein and even it contains fat. So it is difficult for the digestive system for breaking down the proteins present in the meat than present in vegetarian food. So it is better if you take vegetarian food for some time.
4. Care for your Liver
Take foods that keep your liver healthy and increase your bile flow. Foods such as ginger,lemon etc are good to enhance the flow of bile. Never drink water before consuming food and while consuming food.
5. Intake of fiber Enriched foods
Consume foods that contain fiber because fibers digest easily than carbohydrates and proteins. Some foods rich in fiber content are Oats, Pear, Apple etc.
