Step 1: Start a food diary Start a food diary and make a note every time a food irritates your stomach. Step 2: Exercise Exercise 30-60 minutes a day to maintain a healthy weight and reduce stress. Even a short walk after dinner will help. Step 3: Eat smaller meals Eat smaller meals and avoid alcohol, cigarettes, and regular use of pain relievers such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen, which can inflame the stomach lining. Step 4: Eat fermented food Whenever you indulge in a meal of fatty or fried foods, try to also eat fermented foods like pickles, sauerkraut, kimchi, tempeh, and yogurt. The bacteria in these products help break down and absorb fatty foods that are difficult to digest. Tip Some yoga poses aid digestion by increasing blood flow to the digestive system. Step 5: Drink herbal tea Drink soothing herbal drinks, such as ginger or chamomile teas, rice water, or apple cider. Step 6: Eat raw or steamed vegetables Eat raw or steamed vegetables. Cooked veggies are depleted of some of the enzymes that benefit digestion. Step 7: See a doctor If you still experience frequent upset stomach, see a doctor about possible food allergies, ulcers, or other conditions that irritate the gastrointestinal tract and need further treatment.
