Diwali ranks the highest when it comes to festival binging and indulging in a variety of sweets and fried foods. So it is a good practice to go easy on certain foods once the celebrations are over to rid the gut of any toxins and speed up the body’s metabolism for improved overall health.

If you, too, have been overindulging in sweets and savouries over the past few days, it is time you incorporate a few changes in your lifestyle to keep issues like acidity, indigestion and gastric troubles at bay. But if you have been affected by the same already, here’s how you can keep your gut healthy and happy.

Ayurvedic therapist Dr Dixa Bhavsar recently suggested a few ways that can go a long way in ensuring such gut issues stay away.
