Natural remedies for indigestion
Some do's & don'ts

First some Do's

  • Make your meals light and relatively small, full with greens and high fiber vegetables

  • It's better to take 4-5 small and healthy meals a day than taking one heavy meal. Also try to eat at fixed times of the day

  • Eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly. It takes 10 minutes before your stomach signals your brain that you're full. Eating slowly therefore avoids overeating. Generally it is better to eat just a little less than what you would like; 80% full is enough!

  • Relax when you are eating. If you eat when you're stressed, in a hurry, upset or very tired this will raise the chance of getting indigestion

  • Do regular exercises, this keeps you in shape and your weight is under control and it prevents indigestion

  • Drink a lot of water each day. Depending on your build, 7 or 8 glasses of water a day is a good beginning

  • For some people a low-carb diet can control indigestion

Then we continue with some Don'ts

  • Don't overeat, it also causes indigestion. Eat only as much as your stomach allows

  • Keep meals low fat and avoid oily foods. So don't eat fried, fatty and over spicy food

  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, tea, fizzy drinks and chocolates, they all can cause or worsen your indigestion

  • There are food combinations which you better avoid, like: milk and sugar, fruits and vegetables, sugar and protein. These can cause or worsen your indigestion

  • For your children, don't let them play right after lunch, let the meal settle first

  • After a meal, don't immediately do seriously heavy physical work, let the food settle. Wait at least one hour before doing any serious physical activity

  • Do not drink liquids, especially cold ones, with or right after your meals, because this dilutes your stomach juices and slows the digestion down

  • Don't mix hot and cold food, eat them separate

  • Meat is very hard to digest, so if you suffer from indigestion a lot, try to cut down on the meat or don't eat it at all

  • Don't eat fruits right before or after a meal, eat it two hours before or after a meal

  • If you found out that some food or drinks cause indigestion, simply stop taking them. For a lot of people milk causes indigestion, this is because they have lactose intolerance. Then you should obviously avoid milk and milk products

  • Don't eat under- or overcooked food

  • We know how it sounds but we say it anyway: Stop smoking! First of all it's very unhealthy for you and your environment. And second it can cause indigestion or make the one you're suffering from even worse

Final note

Remember that all people still are individuals and all cases of indigestion are also different. What works for one person in one situation might not work for another. So don't despair if a home remedy doesn't immediately work for you. You can try another one probably with more success

If however the indigestion does not resolve even after trying some of these home remedies for indigestion then contact your doctor
