How to Improve Gut Health Naturally

If you are like me, who has a sensitive stomach, it is worth reading about my experiences with gut management.

Mental stress disturbs one’s gut health. Besides this, impure drinking water, contaminated food, alcohol, excess travel, sedentary lifestyle affect gut health.

Prolonged stress would make the stomach and other gut regions like the mouth, esophagus, and intestines sensitive.

People with sensitive stomachs would develop.

  1. Mouth ulcers,
  2. Acidity,
  3. Cramps,
  4. Constipation,
  5. Stomach upset
  6. Diarrhea
  7. inflammation,
  8. mucus in stools,
  9. piles or fistula,
  10. Irritable bowel syndrome, etc.

The above problems become so common that they often appear if not taken care of.

Taking a few precautions would help us prevent them beforehand, and below are the ones to follow.

Mouth ulcers

This occurs in most cases due to vitamin B deficiency or constipation.

This can be cured easily by vitamin B supplements like riboflavin.

Even avoiding constipation can help. For constipation, I recommend Triphala churna or pilex tablets.

Stomach pain or acidity

This can occur if

  1. You drink impure water, long-stored water, contaminated water, muddy water, etc.
  2. If you travel too much alcohol, drink.
  3. When you have some mental stress.
  4. Due to consuming spicy food.
  5. During constipation.

Acidity is caused due to stress, contaminated water, or spicy food.

So, if you suffer from acidity periodically, it could be due to any of the above causes.

Keep a check on them and practice some stress reduction techniques like meditation.

Meditation relieves stress and also helps expel gas in the gut.

Also, if the symptoms are persistent, you can use an antacid for a few days, as the Yashtimadhu tablets or powder mixed in water twice a day.

Besides, you could also take Triphala churna.


This occurs in most cases due to

  1. An inactive or sedentary life leads to less movement of the gut intestine and, thereby, constipation.
  2. Due to oily foods, too much fatty food, a non-veg diet, etc.
  3. Due to insufficient drinking of water, etc.

So the best way is to drink lots of water and avoid sedentary life by walking or using the treadmill daily.

Also, one can use Triphala churna for it too.

If you frequently suffer from constipation, then you could use a bicycle for work, avoid oil foods, and include at least 250gm of fibrous food in your diet every day.

Stomach upset

This occurs due to the indigestion of food consumed. It can be mostly due to an infection or stress.
For this, one can rest, take probiotics, or natural anti-infectives like Tinospora cordifolia.


This occurs due to irritation of the gut by spicy food, contaminated food, bacterial infection, antibiotics, etc.

For this, one can prefer probiotics as a remedy. Besides, one should have oral rehydration salts to avoid weakness.


This condition occurs if one has constipation and takes fatty or spicy food.

It can be painful and may disturb daily life activities, too.

Consult a physician if it is too severe. You may also try out pilex as natural medicine.

If you have first-degree and sometimes second-degree piles without other complications, natural medicine like pilex can help relieve. But if you have other difficulties with piles, the surgery would help.

Inflammation and mucous stools

This problem is quite uneasy. You tend to have urgency for stools. And the evacuation would have mucus. This makes you feel weak and uneasy.

Consult a physician, as it would be a serious issue. Also, you can try Triphala churna.


This occurs as a result of chronic constipation and oily food consumption. It can be avoided by proper water and fibrous food intake.

Besides, one can use pilex tablets and ointment, which helps to relieve the problems in the early stages.
