Everyone has digestive problems from time to time. An upset stomach, gas, heartburn, constipation or diarrhea are just some examples of common digestive problems.
Many digestive problems may be uncomfortable or embarrassing, but they are not serious and don't last long. Others can be controlled with simple changes to your diet, nutrition and lifestyle. For some individuals, it is not so simple.
When acidic and spicy foods cause you some digestive upset, it is important to understand that these foods are not the underlying cause of your digestive issues.
Similarly, fiber is not the real problem for those that get gas and bloating from eating foods high in fiber.
