Meditation for Digestive

Curve Curve

Meditation can help to improve the digestive system in a number of ways. Stress reduction can play a major role in helping to manage stomach acid and improve gastrointestinal functions, and a greater sense of harmony between body and mind can help us to help prevent undereating and overeating - helping us to tune in to what the body needs to operate at its best.

  • The problem

    Having a well-functioning digestive system is a hugely important part of what it takes to keep our bodies healthy. But the constant stress of 21st-century life can disrupt our digestion and cause a lot of problems.

    The reason is simple: digestion uses a lot more energy than some other bodily functions and, when the body goes into the ‘fight or flight’ stress response, digestion is forcibly shut down so that our energy resources can be directed elsewhere.

    During an emergency situation, we needn’t worry about breaking down our lunch for later. We’re much better off using every ounce of energy we have ensuring we’re not somebody else’s lunch!

    The net result, is that all this shutting down and re-firing of the digestive system every time we experience even mild levels of stress plays havoc with our gastrointestinal functioning.

    The consequences range from mild discomfort to painful and severe and, in the most serious cases, life-threatening.

  • How it affects you

    The body’s engine is a finely tuned machine and it’s so easy for stress to start messing with the parts.

    Our stomachs not only break food down chemically, they also do so mechanically by violently contracting the muscle walls on one side of our stomach. As our spoonfuls of fodder are smashed apart, the constituent pieces are then broken down in a cauldron of acids and enzymes.

    We must then lubricate this messy mass with enough liquid to ensure we don’t end up clogged. Then, before it comes out the other end as waste, all that fluid must be filtered out to rehydrate us. The remaining nutrients can then be metabolised and circulated round our bodies to keep us functioning.

    It’s a pretty intense process that requires incredible coordination between all the elements of the digestive system.

    The problem is, we are stressed, our digestion becomes suppressed and bits start to fall out of line. This results in incomplete and insufficient absorption of nutrients, too little cell lining to protect against the corrosive juices, and significant problems moving all of the toxic detritus towards elimination.

    Intermittent and/or prolonged periods of stress can cause all sorts of digestive problems including indigestion, IBS, acid reflux, food intolerances, constipation and ulcerative colitis. 

  • How can Beeja help?

    If you want to know how to improve digestion, the answer lies in meditation. Beeja is unique in helping to improve digestive wellness by restoring balance on six different levels.

    First of all, it restores the mind and body’s optimal functionality.

    Second, it helps restore biochemical balance, bringing back the full complement of hormones to the fluids involved in the digestive process. 

    Third, it helps restore blood flow to the gut area so that the flow of nutrient distribution and waste disposal processes is fully active. 

    Fourth, it aids the repair of any damaged tissues and cells so that they can function correctly and stop causing us so much pain. 

    Fifth, it helps us tune into our digestion so that we can feel when we have eaten enough and not overeat as we so often do, snuffing out the digestive fires along the way. 

    Finally, it works to ensure we stop responding so automatically to psychological stressors so that the driving force behind compromised digestive functioning is calmed to a much more manageable level. 

    If your situation is already acute, then always consult your doctor. But any GP or consultant worth their salt will confirm you will hugely benefit from a stress reduction programme.

    Beeja meditation is the best stress reduction and digestive wellness programme available. It reaches all six layers of the rebalancing process so that you can quickly move towards being, happy, healthy and more energised.

    You don’t need to have serious or painful digestive symptoms for Beeja meditation to be suitable for you. If you have lots of gas, funky farts or smelly stools, you are unlikely to be digesting your food properly. This is central to your wellbeing, so it is worth taking note and listening to (or tuning in to the aroma of!) your body.
