Meditation can help to improve the digestive system in a number of ways. Stress reduction can play a major role in helping to manage stomach acid and improve gastrointestinal functions, and a greater sense of harmony between body and mind can help us to help prevent undereating and overeating - helping us to tune in to what the body needs to operate at its best.

- The problem
Having a well-functioning digestive system is a hugely important part of what it takes to keep our bodies healthy. But the constant stress of 21st-century life can disrupt our digestion and cause a lot of problems.
The reason is simple: digestion uses a lot more energy than some other bodily functions and, when the body goes into the ‘fight or flight’ stress response, digestion is forcibly shut down so that our energy resources can be directed elsewhere.
During an emergency situation, we needn’t worry about breaking down our lunch for later. We’re much better off using every ounce of energy we have ensuring we’re not somebody else’s lunch!
The net result, is that all this shutting down and re-firing of the digestive system every time we experience even mild levels of stress plays havoc with our gastrointestinal functioning.
The consequences range from mild discomfort to painful and severe and, in the most serious cases, life-threatening.
