7 AMAZING HOME REMEDIES FOR INDIGESTION
Indigestion is a chronic medical condition that is also referred to as dyspepsia. It often causes pain or discomfort in the stomach and is associated with difficulty in digesting food. Furthermore, your eating habits or even chronic digestive problems can trigger indigestion. Let us now look at a few other causes that may lead to dyspepsia.
1. Baking Soda
The cause of indigestion can be the presence of excess acid levels. Certain foods like beans, cabbage, milk products and onions among others result in indigestion. Furthermore, baking soda has sodium bicarbonate that acts as an antacid helping to neutralise stomach acid.
Sodium bicarbonates react with the excess formation of hydrochloric acid to break down the effect of the acid in your stomach. It also detoxifies the digestive system relieving you from heartburn and indigestion.
You can take baking soda with water or with honey and even lemon, whichever suits you best. This indigestion remedy can come quite handy.
2. Fennel Seeds (Saunf)
Fennel seeds or saunf consist certain oil compounds including fenchone and estragole that are responsible for preventing or removing the gas from the intestinal tract.
Furthermore, these volatile oils also help boost the production of gastric juices, initiating a smooth digestive process.
It also has antispasmodic properties that help to relax muscle cells that line the respiratory system, stomach and intestines. You can drink fennel tea or even consume the seeds with water.
3. Coriander Seeds (Dhaniya)
These seeds are known for their antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties that relieve you from an upset stomach or indigestion, further stimulating your digestive process.
It consists of an essential oil called urandrol that detoxifies the liver and increases appetite, curing indigestion. Take coriander seeds infused water for about a week to see the difference.
Honey is a rich source of various nutrients that aid digestion. Its anti-inflammatory properties help reduce inflammation while the minerals in it (like potassium) neutralize the acids in your stomach, thereby curing indigestion.
5. Drinking water
The body needs water to digest and absorb nutrients from foods and beverages efficiently. Being dehydrated makes digestion more difficult and less effective, which increases the likelihood of an upset stomach.
We recommend that:
- women should have around 2.7 liters (l), or 91 ounces (oz), of water a day
- men should have about 3.7 l, or 125 oz, of water a day
Furthermore, around 20 percent of this will come from food, with the rest coming from beverages. For most people, a good figure to aim for is approximately 8 or more cups of water a day. Younger children require slightly less water than adults.
Furthermore, for those with digestive issues, it is imperative to stay hydrated. Also, vomiting and diarrhea can lead to dehydration very quickly so people with these symptoms should keep drinking water.
6. Avoiding lying down
When the body is horizontal, the acid in the stomach is more likely to travel backward and move upward, which can cause heartburn.
Furthermore, people with an upset stomach should avoid lying down or going to bed for at least a few hours until it passes. Someone who needs to lie down should prop up their head, neck, and also upper chest with pillows, ideally at a 30-degree angle.
It is a common natural remedy for an upset stomach and indigestion.
Also, the chemicals in ginger may also help to reduce nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Furthermore, people with an upset stomach could try adding ginger to their food or drinking it as a tea. Some all natural ginger ales may also contain enough ginger to settle an upset stomach.
