How to Manage Gastrointestinal Disease

Eating the right foods can help you to self-manage gastrointestinal disorders such as gas, constipation, heartburn/acid reflux, Colitis & Crohn’s Disease or irritable bowel syndrome. For example, constipation can be treated with the addition of more fiber in your diet, consuming more liquids and developing a routine exercise program.

For nausea and vomiting, your fluid management is vital. Hydration with the right products serves to replenish the delicate balance of electrolytes necessary for better health and faster recovery.
