  1. Foods such as gingerbread or apple juice have not been proven to be a laxative if you suffer from constipation. Foods like banana, grated apple, blueberry juice, cinnamon, rice, rice water, white bread and carrot puree do not noticeably stop diarrhea.

What does work as a laxative or stopping one?

  1. With chronic diarrhea, but also with constipation (constipation) it is good to eat a lot of fiber. Fibers act in the intestine as a kind of sponge so that they absorb water, keeping the stool soft and flexible. They also ensure that the intestines keep moving. In this video our spokesperson Jasper explains exactly how it works.

  1. A high-fiber diet is important for healthy bowel movements. Don't look for it in a single food if you have constipation or diarrhea, but add more fiber from different foods. Fiber is obtained from whole grain products, vegetables, fruit, legumes and nuts. And important: drink enough Sufficient drinking helps to prevent constipation. Because fibers bind moisture, they can only do their job properly if you also drink enough. With diarrhea, sufficient drinking prevents dehydration. With diarrhea you need 2 to 3 liters of drink per day. Normally this is 1.5 to 2 liters per day.

  1. With nutritional advice and dietary rules you can reduce your complaints. Is this not the case and do you often suffer from heartburn? Then we recommend that you go to your doctor. A doctor can prescribe medication. To reduce complaints of heartburn, these dietary recommendations apply: 1. Healthy eating according to the Wheel of Five Healthy and fiber-rich food, for example, helps to prevent constipation. Constipation can increase pressure in the abdominal cavity, which can cause stomach upset. Read tips on how to avoid constipation and how to eat more fiber. 2. Losing weight if you are overweight. Being overweight can increase pressure in the abdominal cavity. Losing a few pounds can help. Find out more about how to lose weight. 3. Heavy avoid meals or very fatty meals Heavy meals increase the pressure in the stomach and fatty meals stay in the stomach longer. This can make your complaints worse. 4. Don't lie down right after the food In a recumbent position, stomach contents flow more easily back into the esophagus. After a meal, give your stomach time to process the food. Furthermore, quitting smoking can reduce the symptoms. It may also help to raise the head of the bed about four inches. Should you avoid foods for heartburn? In principle, you can eat and drink anything with heartburn. There is not enough evidence to advise on whether to avoid or eat or drink something. Some people do experience that certain foods have an influence on their complaints. What makes the complaints worse for one person, does not cause any problems for the other. It is important to find out how this works for you, so that complaints diminish. It is also important that you do not unnecessarily avoid certain foods. A dietitian can help with this.

  1. Usually, heartburn is caused by the sphincter between the esophagus and the stomach not working properly. This can be due to increased pressure on the stomach, for example after taking a heavy meal or due to being overweight, pregnancy or constipation. A weakening of the sphincter with age can also be a cause. In addition, smoking, alcohol, carbonated drinks and foods (such as spicy herbs, citrus fruits, onions, and fatty foods) have been linked to heartburn. However, it has not been sufficiently proven that avoiding these drugs has a beneficial effect. Finally, a diaphragm fracture can be the cause. The diaphragm is a muscular plate that separates the chest and abdominal cavities. With a diaphragm fracture, the opening in the diaphragm is too large. A small part of the stomach then ends up in the chest cavity. This causes the sphincter to stop working properly and open.
