It is important to exclude diseases and medications. 
 Normal is, within a week two to three times a bowel movement. 
 If this is not the case for a long time of two to three months, be sure to consult the doctor. 
 The first digestion takes place in the mouth. Swallowing food too quickly forces our intestines 
 to a much more difficult and longer working process. Avoid devouring the food. 
 Slow chewing, on the other hand, allows the digestive process to be initiated and important enzymes are produced. 
 To relieve a faltering bowel emptying, there are two primary approaches: fiber and exercise. 
 Foods such as raspberries, grapefruits, oranges, mint tea, black beans, prunes. Leafy greens and almonds 
 have a positive effect on sluggish digestion. 
 Chew slowly and drink enough fluids. But not too much, otherwise the enzymes are diluted. 
 A great side effect, the diet becomes a pleasure. 
 We at myMotivatin.ch recommend daily fiber in the form of whole grains, flaxseed, vegetables and fruits.  
 In addition, drink enough, because the fiber swells up and thus has a positive effect on digestion. 
 The change should be approached gently, because the intestine should get used to the new task. 
 Signs of a sluggish intestine, can manifest themselves in various forms. 
 For example:
   -  with stomach cramps 
   -  bloated abdominal or 
   -  foul-smelling flatulence
 The list of reasons could be long, but certainly if you eat more often in 
 hectic or under time pressure, consume too little 
 fiber, unfavorable meals in between, drink too little and lack of exercise. 
 But also on the emotional level, it can lead to poor digestion, under stress, 
 constant bad mood or uncontrolled mood swings
 With a targeted consultation and with a food diary determine step by step, 
 which possible causes have led to a sluggish intestine and thus bring 
 a digestion back into swing It is important to filter out in a timely manner which foods are taken,

those that are more positive and those that are less well responsible for regular intestinal excretion.
