Everything You Need to Know About Common Stomach Disorders
Stomach problems are almost always misunderstood. Not because they don’t exist, but because the term ‘stomach’ itself is colloquially used to describe what is actually your entire digestive system – starting from your esophagus and ending with your intestines.
There are numerous muscles and organs involved in the entire digestive process, and the malfunctioning of any of these can lead to what we simplify and call ‘stomach’ problems.
But what are the common stomach disorders? Let’s take a look.
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
If you have pain in your upper stomach and lower chest, followed by heartburn and acid reflux, it’s probably a case of GERD. Eating junk, fatty foods, or spicy foods makes this situation worse – so the solution is to eat food you can digest easily, or eat smaller portions of your favourite spicy curry!
We’re conditioned to accept that drinking milk is normal, but few people know that 65% of humans actually have difficulty digesting lactose. Based on how badly your body reacts, symptoms can range from bloating, diarrhea, burping, gas, and indigestion.
Not eating enough fiber, not drinking enough fluids, and not exercising enough can all cause constipation. Bad eating habits, however, top the list, so make sure you get your daily dose of greens and veggies and fruits!
Stomach ulcers are caused by the inflammation of the stomach lining. This causes stomach pain, nausea and occasionally vomiting. Ulcers are usually caused by the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacteria, which causes damage to your stomach, causing digestive issues.
Washing your produce before cooking and eating home-cooked meals helps, because not only are you certain your food is healthy, but you know what’s exactly going into your body too.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (not to be confused with IBD – Inflammatory Bowel Disease) is actually a fairly common stomach disorder that leads to constipation or diarrhoea. This means that you almost always end up with an upset stomach after eating. The common cause is harmful bacteria that enter your system and mess with the colony of ‘friendly’ bacteria in your gut that aid digestion. The solution? Eat healthier, as usual, and take a dose of probiotics regularly to support the good bacteria in your body.
