iVillage.com: Natural Ways to Prevent and Relieve Heartburn, Gas and Other Digestive Woes

Practice Yoga

Deadline looming? Company coming? Stress overloads are as tough on your digestive tract as they are on your nervous system -- in fact, they’re one of the leading causes of chronic digestive upsets, says Gitnick. Spending just 20 minutes daily practicing even the most basic yoga poses can reduce your bouts of indigestion by 70 percent in one week and cut your heartburn flare-ups in half, say doctors at New York’s Winthrop University Hospital. Turns out these calming, body-bending moves act just like meditation, dramatically lowering your output of tummy-trashing stress hormones. To learn yoga without signing up for a pricey class, try yogatoday.com or yogadownload.com for free video classes.
