Another strain on digestion
Do you love to travel? Great. Enjoy all those new experiences that inspire your mind. But also be aware that in some cases a new environment can have certain effects on your digestion: Unfamiliar food, changing time zones and different climates are the most common causes of constipation when travelling.
Exotic ingredients and spices, unusually large quantities and rich food, combined with a change in daily routine and perhaps higher temperatures than normal, can also put a strain on your stomach and bowels. This can cause discomfort and even pain when visiting the toilet.
Depending on the type of changes and your body’s natural predisposition, needing a few days to acclimatise to the new conditions is completely normal. To make your days of adjustment easier, try to eat light, fibre-rich meals and, particularly in warmer climates, drink more water, juices or tea than you normally would at home.
