Avoid certain foods

Consuming heavy, spicy or oily snacks or food takes a longer time to digest and also increases the risk of heartburn which can result in stomach inflammation.

Coffee, energy drinks, packed fruit juices and drinks that have high sugar content should be avoided. Consume green vegetables, fresh seasonal fruits, like watermelon, pears, apple, cucumber, buttermilk, and tender coconut during summer.

Eat frequently in smaller portions
