Physical Care

Stop smoking: Mixed in with saliva, it becomes particular toxic for the stomach. Physical exercise is essential, in order for the excess energy to be spent somewhere other than in the stomach. Choose activities that will tire you out, such as cycling, running, long walks, and cross-country skiing.

Nutricional Care

Avoid taking in cold substances. Cold has a tendency to block the stomach and give it spams, which prevents it from emptying properly. Start meals with hot soup to relax the stomach. Chew your food throroughly. Avoid sugar; it increases acidity. Don't overuse asperin and anti-inflammatory medicine. They prevent proper functioning of the protective mucus on the walls of the stomach. Avoid lemon and vinegar (except in small quantities), sugar, chocolate, alcohol, salt, spices, garlic. These increase stomach acidity and can cause acis reflux in the esophagus during the night. However two or three drops of lemon in a glass of lukewarm water will help the stomach empty out.

Psychological Care

Doing "tiring out" exercises helps get rid of excess energy, hyperactivity and decrease tension. Practicing combat sports (martial arts) can help temper impulses and increase self-control. Practice tai-chi, yoga or other relaxation techniques.
