It’s awful to really enjoy a meal, and then feel sick immediately
afterwards. Especially if it’s a chronic occurrence. Of course, food
poisoning happens, as do other weird situations. However, if you have
dyspepsia (the fancy word for an upset stomach) or some kind of
nausea all the time, you’ve got to be wondering what’s up.
You’re not alone. According to a 2012 report by P. Oustamanolakis
from the University of Leuven in Belgium 20-25% of people in the
Western World have the disease.
Of course, feeling sick has many shades of experience, and simple
stomach pain isn’t always all she wrote. Nausea and acid reflux, along
with even headaches, could accompany your eating experience.
On some occasions, the cause could be the way you are eating, in
others, an external disease, and even in some cases, where you are
eating. Gastrointestinal problems, motion sickness, irritable bowel
syndrome, acid reflux, allergies, gallstones, and even pregnancy and
anxiety, are just some on the bucket list of causes for your complaining
guts and body.
We provide you with some good tips for calming your system after
eating, which are usually harmless or helpful, whether you have the
specific problem or not. Read on and enjoy.
1. Cut Back on Fatty Foods
If you’ve got a gnawing or sharp pain around the mid or upper right
part of your abdomen, which may lead to vomiting or nausea...don’t
clap your hands.
First try cutting the fatty foods in your diet, including cholesterol and
trans and saturated fat (butter, whole milk, eggs, margarine, fatty
If you feel better, great. Also, go get diagnosed to see if you have
gallstones. Fatty foods may aggravate the symptoms of having
gallstones, although oddly, gallstones are generally asymptomatic.
However, their existence is quite common.
According to the University of Maryland, 25 million people develop
gallstones in the United States. It is “the most common cause of
pancreatitis in the Western world,” says D. Cucher from the University
of Arizona, in a 2014 report. The good news is that it is only severe in
20% of the cases, and the easiest way to manage the disease is to
chuck out those fats.
2. Calm Down and Get a Good, Holistic Healer
Sometimes your stomach feels bad after eating because of stress.
Anxiety can seriously screw up the digestion process. Whether it’s fully
or partially psychosomatic, treating how you feel will help.
If you are usually a chill person, but passing through a temporarily
cortisol-charged time, don’t worry.
But, if the feeling persists for a few weeks, you might want to get
yourself some meditation, yoga, massage, dancing.
Whatever your personal medication, the key is to actually engage in it,
and start to relax.
If you can, going to a psychologist or medical doctor who treats you on
both a physical and psychological level is also great.
In 2007, G. Alfren and colleagues looked at patients with stress-related
stomach pain. Group A was treated by a combination of psychological
and physical treatments, by two different people. Group B was treated
only with physiotherapy. Group C was given integrative physiological
and psychological treatment given by the same person.
Patients were tested at one year and one year later, and were
evaluated by calculating the pain score and tender points at initiation
and at the end. The pain score improved with all treatments, but group
C performed the best. Scientists are looking into the potential of
integrative therapy. This type of cure is something I’ve always believed
in, whether it comes to treating mental or physical disorders.
3. Treat Food Allergies and Try an Elimination Diet
According to a 2006 report from M.I. Park at the Mayo Clinic College of
Medicine, 20-65% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome attribute it
to something in food that activates a negative response.
Food allergies can not only cause irritable bowel syndrome, but a host
of other issues, as well.
Many have reported that exclusion diets, removing the food that causes
irritation, will cause the feeling of sickness to subside.
Sometimes it is the case that your stomach isn’t doing its job well, but
more often than not, it’s a tangible external object passing through the
digestive system that’s the culprit.
4. Manage Gastrointestinal Issues, Such As Acid Reflux
Acid reflux is also a pretty common feeling of sickness after consuming
certain foods. It occurs when the muscle valve between the esophagus
and stomach malfunctions and stomach acid leaks into the esophagus.
You will probably get a sensation of burning behind the breastbone,
but you may also experience nausea.
According to experts at the University of Illinois-Chicago school of
medicine, your best bets if you are feeling this kind of sickness is to use
a protein pump inhibitor or H2 blockers, or take antacids.
Protein pump inhibitors and H2 blockers both decrease acid production.
Be sure to ask your doctor if what you are experiencing is
gastrointestinal, and if so, what’s best for you to take.
5. Don’t Eat in the Car
Or any other form of transportation, either. Sometimes you might feel
sick after food because of motion sickness, if you always eat on the go,
or eat right before or right after hopping into your car or the bus.
Especially if you’re prone to motion sickness even without chowing
down. This kind of malaise can cause nausea and stomach pain.
If you absolutely must eat on the go, A. Brainard from Middlemore
Hospital in Auckland, New Zealand, recommends you position yourself
in the most stable part of the vehicle, to reduce nausea.
In his 2014 report, Brainard recommends scopolamine or first
generation antihistamines (which are sedative), whether your motion
sickness is provoked by food or not.
Check with your physician to see which are compatible with your body.
However, if you get sick every time you eat on the go, try to make at
least 10 minutes to sit down and enjoy your meal.
6. Make Ginger Your Best Friend
Guys, here is a tip you can take from the ladies. According to Dr.
Raymond Poliakin, author of "What you didn’t think to ask your
obstetrician", when pregnant, the digestive tract processes things more
slowly and the food stays in your stomach, causing nausea.
Dr. Poliakin recommends that you avoid heavy or greasy food. You
should also eat ginger-flavored foods or drink ginger ale.
Certain kinds of spices help reduce nausea, although don’t overdo it, as
it may cause the opposite effect. This is good advice, whether you’re
pregnant or not, and have an upset tummy. If you are pregnant, check
with your doctor that your prenatal vitamin isn’t screwing things up.
7. Slow Way Down When You Eat and Eat Less
According to experts at the Cleveland Clinic, there are many benign
reasons your stomach may be upset. One of them is the velocity at
which you chow down.
If you’re inhaling your food, it may go down the wrong way, especially
when filled with grease.
Unfortunately, I know this from firsthand experience, dining veggie
noodles at a delicious Chinese place. It will also make a huge difference
if you don’t eat so much food at once. Your body will be able to
process what it does have in there more easily.
