Slow Digestion Remedies
Traditional Chinese Style

Looking for slow digestion remedies? These three traditional Chinese exercises improve sluggish digestion quickly, easily and safely - without pills, potions or preparation.

1. The first exercise should only be done on an empty stomach. Known as the Abdominal Lift it is best done first thing in the morning before breakfast and is a superb slow digestion remedy. The Ab Lift prepares your digestive organs for food by giving your entire abdominal area an invigorating massage.

2. Once you've spent a few minutes doing abdominal lifting, do the Back Twist. This classic Chinese exercise also stimulates your abdominal and digestive organs by compressing them as you twist your torso from side to side. 3. After every meal do Abdominal Rubbing. Massaging your abdomen after meals is an excellent way to improve digestion and absorption of nutrients. Chinese people like to walk very slowly after meals and rub their abdomen at the same time.
