Indigestion? Drink Your Fluids Differently

0% Worth it

Submitted by:

There is a saying in Chinese Medicine: 'chew your drink and eat your food.' If we 'chew' our drinks we will only take them in small amounts, allowing them to be thoroughly digested. Drinking vast amounts of fluid along with meals tends to flood the main stomach, and washes our food down. It also dilutes the digestive juices.

What You'll Need

  • Warm water.
  • Sip between meals

What You'll Do

  • Chinese Medicine advises that we sip drinks between meals rather than at mealtimes.
  • It is also best to drink warm water to aid digestion.
