Did you know more than 100 million Americans suffer from some type of digestive disorder? Whether it is as common as heartburn, constipation, and gas or a more severe problem like irritable bowel syndrome, the number of people diagnosed with digestive disorders is on the rise.

Who is to blame for this situation? The retailers who willingly sell unhealthy food? Or the food companies who manufacture them? Well, looks like neither of them! Yes, before pointing fingers at businesses that are modeled to work for profits, we need to do a reality check.

It is we who are to be blamed for the dwindling health of our digestive system. We are too fickle to be quickly influenced by media who in all their glory are paid to project the unhealthiest foods in the most appealing way to the consumers. In meeting with satisfying our every craving and convenience, what we often forget is the correlation between these heavenly treats and how it might affect our digestion.

Poor eating habits can greatly hamper your digestion and result in several problems. Stimulating the digestive process before eating your meal can help prevent all these things while also improving your metabolic rate.

Yogi Cameron explains how simple yoga postures can not only fix a sluggish digestion but also help regulate your system and clear out any impending problems.

Twisting Postures For Better Digestion
Yogi Cameron demonstrates the posture to help fix digestion troubles:

  • Place your hands on the hip and inhale. Now start moving your shoulders to one side while at the same time exhale out.
  • Come back to the front and repeat the same on the other side.
  • You can do four to five sets of this exercise before every meal.
