Try this for a few days to reduce the amount of activity that your stomach is performing. The key is to eat healthy whole foods during your eating window and staying hydrated with water.
Spending time swimming in the ocean where there are high levels of magnesium.
Grounding yourself by standing barefoot in the grass, walking on sand or dirt without shoes.
Exercising outside to absorb vitamin d and feel closer to the elements
