Understand Digestive Imbalances During the Festive Season at RAKxa Integrative Wellness 

What are the Factors that Can Disrupt the Balance of Your Gut 

During the winter season, many people may experience digestive imbalances that could be attributed to environmental and lifestyle changes. The colder temperatures and changing dietary habits have been identified as contributing factors to various digestive issues, including irregular bowel movements, bloating, and stomach discomfort. 

RAKxa Integrative Wellness, the leading medical wellness retreat in Thailand helps discerning guests understand the root causes of these gut imbalances to effectively address these problems and prepare themselves for a healthy year ahead with improved digestion. 

Change in temperature 

Colder weather tends to slow down digestion, leading to slower bowel movements and potential constipation. Additionally, individuals may feel less thirsty in colder months and consume less water, which can lead to dehydration. Dehydration can hinder proper digestion and lead to increased bloating and discomfort. 

Festive meal 

A festive meal is often packed with refined carbs, sugar and unhealthy saturated fats. These foods can affect the balance of the gut microbiome, disrupting the digestive system. For instance, sugar can attract water into the large intestine or hinder its effective absorption, resulting in abdominal gas or heaviness. 

Less mindful eating

Overindulging in unhealthy foods and alcohol consumption can harm the digestive system and contribute to bloating. These foods are often deficient in vital nutrients, which can lead to the development of irritable bowel syndrome. Alcohol also irritates the stomach, causing it to produce more acid than usual, leading to discomfort and digestive disturbances.
