We have all been in a position where the food was so good that we just kept eating long after we should have stopped. The result is always the same; short term pleasure followed by terrible discomfort due to the difficulty that the body has in digesting entirely too much food or drink at once.
While overeating is a common concern, it is definitely not the only digestion problem. Other digestive concerns include IBS, diverticulitis, colitis, and celiac disease. While none of these conditions are pleasant, in many cases they are manageable.
The good news is that new evidence is emerging that demonstrates that there are a number of natural treatment options that are available for those that do suffer from digestive issues. Many of these are herbs, such as peppermint and ginger. It is also important to note that Pu-Erh tea and green tea have been shown to have a positive impact upon digestive health.
