Lucknow: Excessive exposure to the sun’s heat causes sunstroke or heatstroke. It occurs as a result of an imbalance in the body’s thermosetting. Water evaporation in the form of sweat is used by the body’s cooling process. In India, summers are marked by rising temperatures which can cause a number of digestive problems or gastrointestinal disorders including gastroenteritis, heartburn, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome. These are accompanied by symptoms such as stomach cramps, diarrhoea, vomiting and bloating of the stomach.

As the temperature rises, it affects our immunity and digestion, resulting in these problems. As a result, it is critical to maintain good eating habits during the summer months. But here are simple preventive measures to take care of your digestive system during this hot weather conditions:

Stay hydrated

To stay hydrated throughout the summer, drink plenty of water and water-based drinks like freshly squeezed juices and coconut water. The body loses a lot of water due to excessive perspiration, therefore it’s important to drink 8-10 glasses of water every day to restore it. Curd and salted buttermilk drinks help to chill the body and protect it from the summer heat.

Include probiotic-rich foods in diet

The finest source of probiotics is yoghurt. It’s high in proteins and microorganisms, making digestion simpler and better. Yogurt, whether plain or flavoured, can help with diarrhoea.

Avoid drinks high in sugar content

Cold liquids with a high sugar content, such as cold coffee, energy drinks, packaged fruit juices, and soda, are not suitable for the summer heat.

Avoid diary products

While cold milk may provide temporary comfort, once consumed, the milk warms up the body. The same may be said for dairy products such as butter, cheese, and even ice cream. Stomach troubles are caused by the heat created by these dairy products.

Say no to spicy, fried, acidic food

Avoid heavy, oily foods since they take longer to digest and might cause heartburn, which causes stomach inflation. Incorporate green vegetables and fresh fruits into your diet, such as apples, pears, melons, and cucumber. Food should be consumed in smaller quantities and spaced out throughout the day to improve digestion and hydration. Salads with tomatoes, carrots, and onions are high in fibre, which can help lower cholesterol levels. Dates are a healthy snack that may be carried in little pouches when out and about. They’re high in protein, iron, fibre, calcium, and vitamins, plus they protect your eyes and skin from the sun.

Stay away from meat

Non-vegetarian foods such as red meat, mutton, and beef create a lot of heat in the body and should be avoided during the summer. In addition, if meat is not adequately frozen in the summer, it becomes readily infected, making it a major source of food poisoning.

Avoid beverages that irritate stomach

Beverages like coffee, alcohol and carbonated sodas should be avoided.

Workout regularly

Yoga, brisk walking, and running are advised for people of all ages and genders. Physical exercise of any type promotes digestion and decreases stress, both of which help to relieve stomach discomfort.

While the aforementioned techniques can help keep gastrointestinal disorders at bay throughout the summer, you should seek medical treatment if you suffer digestive difficulties or severe symptoms such as those listed above.
