At the present time, we are exposed to more and more stress in everyday life. This has a negative effect on our health and especially on our intestinal health. In this case, it is about the intestinal function, or rather, whether the intestine can dissipate naturally and regularly. The biochemistry of the intestine plays a major role. This means, for example, that the intestine produces enough digestive enzymes and enzymes. Also, the cooperation of the digestive system in the abdominal area such as bile, stomach, liver and pancreas are very important for a full functioning of the intestine. These bowel movements are controlled by the nervous system in the gut and are also linked to the nervous system in the brain. 

It is important to have a relaxed nervous system in the intestines to have a healthy bowel movement. If you often have to cope with Verstopfengen and the like, this is often due to an irritated nervous system and an unbalanced biochemistry in the intestine. It is very important to note that digestive problems can never be solved with chemical laxatives from the pharmacy. It is best to take a probiotic snack like de yumplum into your daily routine and bring the intestinal flora back to a healthy state. Proverb: Fight the causes instead of the symptoms, so that you are healthy in the long term.  

Hardly a day goes by without being stressed out. But what is this stress exactly in the biological context? Stress begins in the head, meaning we perceive stress on the emotional and psychological level, which has a biochemical influence on the rest of the body. This stress can be caused for a variety of reasons such as time pressure, fear of the future, pressure from the family and social environment, etc. Since stress is a matter of the head, one can rate it differently or learn to evaluate stress differently. For example, there are people who can easily work 50-60 hours a week where others would fall over. This has a lot to do with the evaluation of stress. 

Below I show 3 methods how to best manage stress:

1. Acknowledge it! First of all, being honest with yourself and confessing that you're stressed out is very important. Only by the perception of the stress can you find further ways to actively manage the stress! The best thing to do after getting up in the morning is 5-10 minutes in the morning and ask yourself what the stressor is at the moment. It is helpful once to feel the different parts of the body and really ask yourself at which point may it be painful and then focus on this body area. This could say a lot about your situation.

2. Take a deep breath - Breathing exercises have been used for years in integrative medicine to counteract the mental symptoms. Best in the morning before getting up and at night before going to bed, lying in bed for 1-2 minutes, close your eyes, put your hands closed on the stomach, breathe deeply for 4-5 seconds and try to get away from the worries and fears during the exhalation to solve. This helps tremendously to get away from the daily stress and just come down.

3. Movement as medicine! Another incredibly important part of preventing stress is moving daily. The body is not designed to sit on a desk chair for 8 hours a day. No, the body needs its movement not only for physical health, but also for mental health. A walk through the park can make a big difference. Exercise helps to clear the head while preventing bowel obstruction.
