Do you ever feel your tummy is bloated, you often have gas or you are regularly constipated or have diarrhea? It is very likely since 20% of the Canadian population suffers each year of digestive disorders. Daily living with these discomforts affects much more than your digestive system. Indeed, people are reporting that their mood, their emotions and even their energy level are affected.

Some may have a slow digestive system. In this case, food moves slowly within the digestive tract and makes the transit to be longer. This causes water to be reabsorbed more than usual at the level of the colon and causes constipation. The stools are hard, dry and more difficult to pass.

Others may suffer from bloating, often after eating certain foods such as:

  • dairy products,
  • bread or pasta,
  • legumes (beans, lentils, chickpeas),
  • cabbage, broccoli or cauliflower,
  • some types of fruit,
  • soft drinks or sports drinks.

Often in this situation, insufficient digestive enzymes are produced and certain sugars cannot be broken down enough to be absorbed by the body. Instead they remain in the intestine and drag along water molecules into the intestine, which creates bloating and causes diarrhea.

How often in a day do you have to be careful not to disturb the people around you with your flatulence? Know that on average, it is normal to have about fifteen gases per day. They are the result of the fermentation of undigested sugars and fibers that are found in your colon (large intestine) by bacteria.

If you are frequently troubled by such symptoms, know that there are things you can do to make yourself feel better. Consulting with a dietitian and implementing nutritional changes can help get you back to your normal self. Have more questions? I’m here to help!
