If you frequently have an upset stomach or acid reflux then it shows in your face, specifically the region just above your lip. With amazingly specific detail, the Chinese art of Face Reading enables us to “read” digestive issues in the face. When you’ve chronically eaten a diet that is irritating your stomach, then the central portion of your top lip and/or the skin just above it will be discolored and or the lip border will be blurred and/or irritated. See before and after photos of people who changed their diet and resolved both acid reflux and their corresponding facial irregularities.
A hiatal hernia is an inflammatory response when the upper stomach pushes (herniates) up through the diaphragm’s muscular opening (hiatus) and balloons into the chest cavity. Imagine a stomach so inflamed and enlarged that it is forced out of its normal, muscle-bound position. An estimated 50 percent of people over 40 years of age unknowingly suffer from hiatal hernias.
Any foods that stress digestion contribute to this condition. Food sensitivities and allergens are the leading culprits. Secondary players include refined, hard to digest, fatty and stale foods as well as alcohol, drugs, chemicals, caffeine (even decaf) and tobacco. In conventional literature, overeating is cited as a primary cause as hiatus hernias are most prevalent among obese people. In alternative health circles, we consistently see that overeating is resolved with a healthy, nutritional balanced diet.
Pay attention to what heightens your discomfort and what decreases it. It’s helpful to record a food log of everything you eat for several weeks and note your corresponding symptoms. Quickly patterns emerge that are informative. Additionally, seeing the direct cause and effect of certain foods and stomach pain enables people to avoid problematic foods.
