Modern people have a fast pace of life. They are even in a hurry to eat. They eat a lot and do things in a hurry after eating. All kinds of signals that follow are actually omens of diseases, such as hiccups, flatulence and diarrhea. I suggest you take your health into account no matter how busy you are. Here are eight things you should not rush to do after dinner. Let’s take a look.
◆ these small problems after meals should not be ignored.
1. Belch requires prevention of liver disease
Many people think that burping after dinner is a signal of eating more comfortably. In fact, burping is a short sound made by the involuntary intermittent contraction of the diaphragm, which makes air suddenly inhaled into the respiratory tract. Burping occasionally is harmless, but if it continues, it will cause chest discomfort.
If hiccups are serious and difficult to disappear by themselves, be careful that the tumor will cause liver enlargement, stimulate the diaphragm and cause diaphragm spasm. See a doctor in time to find out the cause so as not to delay treatment.
2. Flatulence requires gastritis prevention
Postprandial fullness is one of the characteristics of chronic gastritis. If you always have flatulence after meals, you should go to the hospital to check whether you have chronic gastritis. It is worth noting that we should avoid eating spicy, hard, raw and cold food that irritates the stomach, eat more fresh and light food, and actively treat chronic infections in the oral cavity and throat.
3. Diarrhea prevention enteritis
Diarrhea after meals is generally caused by unclean diet, but we should be extra vigilant against enteritis. After food enters the intestinal tract, intestinal peristalsis is enhanced, absorption function is reduced, and diarrhea occurs due to intestinal mucosal inflammation. People who are prone to diarrhea, if it is caused by the dysfunction of the spleen and stomach, should start with regulating the spleen and stomach, eat less raw, cold and stimulating food, and eat more food that strengthens the spleen and nourishes the stomach, such as yam, cabbage and apples.
The doctor suggested that in order to prevent the attack of disease, it is best to do “eight don’t rush” after meals, so that the doctor can stay away from you.
◆ after meals, the doctor should stay away from you
1. Don’t rush for a walk.
After dinner, the stomach is in a full state. Even slight exercise will shake the stomach, increase the gastrointestinal burden, and affect the digestive function. It is easy to feel drowsy after dinner. Walking at this time is easy to cause accidents. Therefore, it is advisable to sit still for 30 minutes after dinner before moving.
2. Don’t rush to eat fruit
Eating fruits immediately after meals can easily cause abdominal distension, diarrhea or constipation. Therefore, people had better eat fruit 1-2 hours after meals.
3. Don’t rush to take a bath.
If you rush to take a bath after dinner, it will affect digestion and absorption. Therefore, you should rest for 1-2 hours after dinner before taking a bath.
4. Don’t brush your teeth in a hurry.
There is a layer of enamel on the surface of the crown called enamel. If you brush your teeth immediately at this time, the enamel crystal will be easily brushed away, and over time, your teeth will be easily damaged. Therefore, rinse your mouth after meals, and wait at least 1-2 hours before brushing your teeth.
5. Don’t rush to drink tea.
Tea can also dilute gastric juice and affect the normal digestion of food in the stomach. Therefore, it is better not to drink tea within 1 hour after dinner.
6. Don’t rush to smoke.
If you smoke at this time, the lung’s absorption capacity of nicotine and other harmful substances is much larger than usual, which is more harmful to human health.
7. Don’t rush to loosen your belt
Relaxing the trouser belt after dinner will reduce the intra-abdominal pressure, weaken the support function of the digestive tract, and easily cause gastroptosis and other digestive system diseases.
8. Don’t rush to bed
As the saying goes, “lying down after dinner can make you grow four Liang without half a catty”. Rest at least 20 minutes after dinner before going to bed, even during lunch break.
