Gut problems increase during monsoon, know the ways to avoid it from experts

Due to the sensitive digestive system in monsoon, the risk of diseases increases. Due to this gastric problems like acidity, bloating, indigestion, ulcers become common.

Monsoon season is pleasant, but it also brings with it diseases, infections and allergies. The digestive system becomes sensitive especially during the rainy season and gastric problems like acidity, bloating, indigestion, ulcers become common. Doctors say that for this, eating a balanced diet, exercising daily, avoiding junk, spicy and oily food, besides drinking boiled water is the need of the hour because the moist weather during the rainy season makes the entire digestive system sluggish.

Why do bowel problems increase in monsoon?

Dr Kiyur Seth, associated with Apollo Spectra Hospital, Mumbai, says, “We have always seen an increase in the number of patients with stomach, intestine and liver infections during the rainy season. The number of patients increases suddenly due to food and water infections. " According to him, every month a thousand patients come to the hospital for treatment of gastric problems.

They say that eating heavy meals can slow down the digestion process, which invites problems like bloating, gas, acidity and indigestion. There is a possibility of stomach infection by eating market juice or chaat because the water used in it may contain bacteria. Drinking from sources other than pure water can make you sick and you may suffer from diarrhoea.

What are the ways to avoid bowel problems? 

Dr Seth says, "Avoid drinking drinks mixed with gas as it can cause mineral deficiency by weakening the digestive system." 

Some important measures can be taken to keep the digestive system working smoothly during monsoon. 
  • Avoid eating seafood as the water gets contaminated during monsoon and fish can cause cholera or diarrhoea. 
  • Do not eat cut fruits sold on the roadside as cut fruits can be contaminated due to bacteria. 
  • According to Dr. Seth, include lemon and ginger in the diet to increase digestion and immunity.
  • Consume probiotics like yogurt or buttermilk as the good bacteria present in them support the immune system.
  • Use plenty of water to flush out toxins from the body and improve digestion. 
  • Eat boiled vegetables as the virus and bacteria in raw vegetables can make your gut worse.
  • Do not lie down immediately after having a meal as it can cause acidity and bloating.
