Feeling good on vacation

Some useful tips to protect your stomach and bowel even in summer


After an unusual winter season, we definitely need to have a relaxing break away from the daily routine.

However, summer holidays can sometimes be quite stressful.

The summer heat and continuous exposure to sunlight can cause a lowering of blood pressure that usually manifests itself with a sense of tiredness and exhaustion. In addition, the sudden temperature lips linked, for example, to the abuse of air conditioning can affect the correct function of the digestive system, "stressing" the body out.

Moreover, the jump in temperature and the abuse of cold drinks can cause abdominal pain and dysentery. These problems can manifest themselves especially in those people who suffer from irritable bowel.

On the contrary, there are people who lose their intestinal regularity, experiencing symptoms of constipation.

Useful tips for those who suffer from irritable bowels

  • Avoid excessive temperature lips
  • Do not put ice in drinks  
  • Avoid milk and dairy
  • If you travel abroad, try to consume only well-cooked food and packaged drinks in order to avoid the so-called "traveler's diarrhea" 
Useful tips for those who experience constipation symptoms
  • Consume food rich in fibre
  • Drink a lot of water
  • Increase physical activity 

Consumption of fibre-rich food should always be combined with good hydration. Indeed, without an adequate supply of water the fibres can increase swelling and constipation. Lastly, it is always a good rule to contact your doctor and avoid do-it-yourself treatments.
