 As a foodie, I tend to go overboard with food. Who wouldn't right? With food present left and right, it's a bit too much sometimes. Especially now that Metro Manila is in a quarantine, we tend to create dishes and eat as long as we want to. One thing I realized early on is that we need to take care of our gut. 
Today is WORLD DIGESTIVE HEALTH DAY 2020. Today, it's all about taking care of our tummy. It's something that we need to do to keep up with everything that's happening around us.
 Stress, oily dishes, and not eating on time could lead to problems for our stomach. It's better to have a preventive approach when it comes to this. Eat healthy dishes like veggies. Go for high fiber intake. Don't forget to take in tons of fluids. Exercise is also the best way to go.
 Just in case, you might need some medications that could help you out. When, there's pain involved, there's a decrease in the way we move about. It's best to take care of it asap. If we're having loose bowel, we need to take care of it just so that we don't get dehydrated. On the flipside, having constipation is also bad for us. It's all about balance.  Sanofi Philippines sent on over some samples of their dependable meds. As always, please consult your healthcare provider before taking any of these.
 If you're feeling constipated, DULCOLAX will be your best bet. It's best to take it before you sleep just so that when you wake up, you'll have an easier bowel movement. Best to drink it with a full glass of water.
On the other hand, when you have loose bowel movement, ERCEFLORA is a great medication when you're trying to restore the normal balance in your tummy. It's basically a probiotic to help your gut return to normal. They now offer these for kid as well in the form of Probi Bears.
 Essentiale Forte P is something for your liver. It helps protect and promote liver health especially when you have a chronic liver disease. So, it's best for you to take alcoholic drinks in moderation and never go overboard.
BUSCOPAN is a great antispasmodic medication to help you with abdominal pain. They now offer one that's targeting cramps for our female friends with the Buscopan Venus. These would help decrease stomach spasms and help us get through the day.

SANOFI is encouraging everyone to talk about their gut feelings. They're using the hashtags #WDHD and #LetsTalkAboutGutFeelings. Maybe you could share your stories too. Cheers.
