Check for emulsifiers in your non-dairy milk
If you’re cutting out dairy to help tackle swelling and stomach pain, you might want to check the label on that ‘healthy’ nut milk before you slosh it into your gruel.

Longer breaks between you meals can help your microbes (bacteria in the body). It’s suggested that we skip breakfast one or two days a week, or opt for a later Sunday brunch, to give your peptic tract a chance to renew.
Swap juice for real fruit
It hardly seems like the biggest health crime, but juicing isn’t great for gut health. The problem here is by juicing you are removing nearly all the fiber, which is exactly the thing we need for good bacteria to thrive.
Stop chewing gum
You might think it’s a quick way to freshen breath or even stave of hunger pangs, but your gum habit could be playing havoc with your peptic juices, leading to an over-production of stomach acid, says Healthiness’s nutritional director Rick Hay.
