5 myths about digestion problems

1. If you have digestion problems, it means you have stomach problems. The digestive system is very complex. It consists of digestive tract (mouth, pharynx, esophagus, stomach, intestine and anus) and digestive glands (salivary glands, gastric glands, liver, pancreas and small intestine glands). Digestion problems can be caused by different ailments of any of these organs. Therefore, digestive problems cannot be equated solely with stomach ailments.

2. All digestive disorders have a clear reason. Very often symptoms of digestive disorders such as nausea, stomach pain, heartburn, belching or flatulence do not have a clear reason. Gastrointestinal disorders are often provoked by poor nutrition, bad habits, stress, excessive or poor exercising, etc.

3. It is sufficient to consider the symptoms for treating. People often mistakenly identify disease thinking just about the symptoms that they experience. For example, you may feel some stretch in the stomach area and believe that it’s a problem with your stomach, but in fact it can be a symptom that any other digestive organ has some problem. Similar symptoms can occur when you have esophageal, gastric or intestinal disorders and self-healing can even make the situation worse. If you constantly experience digestion problems, you should consult your doctor.

4. Impaired digestion can be treated only with chemical pills. Slight digestion disorders can be treated by plant-based medications. Talking about natural treatments, artichoke, turmeric, rosemary, peppermint, cumin and coriander can do a job.

5. Medications are enough to treat digestion disorders. First of all, doctors recommend changing eating habits, always eat at the same time, refuse junk food, fried food, and alcohol, quit smoking, chew food thoroughly and exercise. Also learn to cope with stress.
