Everyone in my house each has totally different digestion health. One easily gets indigestion and the other has smooth digestion. That lucky person is me. I honestly don’t think it’s all about luck. It’s mostly about your daily lifestyle. So below I have some tips on how to avoid indigestion, also on how to treat the symptoms if it happens. These are all the simple tips that I believe everyone can do; they shouldn’t be out of your comfort zone, so no worries.
You might want to know how to treat yourself at home when having indigestion, so let’s get started with 5 simple things you could do.
A cup of ginger tea, or your own ginger water, can help soothe your stomach and get rid of indigestion. There’s ginger candy you can find in the market and it could help too.
Chamomile tea has many benefits besides calming. One of those benefits is relieving indigestion by reducing stomach acid.
A Warm Bath
Taking a warm bath can help to ease the symptoms of an upset stomach. It also eases indigestion and relaxes tense muscles. Applying a heating bag or pad to your stomach can help too.
At the first sign of gas, you can take Boiron Gasalia, a homeopathic medicine. It works with your body to temporarily relieve bloating, pressure, discomfort, and pain associated with gas.* What I love about Boiron Gasalia is that it’s non-drowsy, so no worries about taking it during the day.
Boiron Acidil can temporarily relieves occasional heartburn, acid indigestion, bloating, or upset stomach.*
And here are 5 ways to AVOID INDIGESTION:
Add rice to your meals.
Because of my eating culture, I have rice mostly in every meal. You can also do brown rice or vegetables which have high fiber, depends on your diet plan.
Think fruits for snacks.
Having some berries or grapes next to me when I’m working on the computer is another tip that I strongly suggest. They do the job of snacks while adding lot of fiber.
Drink plenty of water.
As a stay at home mom, I drink more water than my mom who is working full time. You can easily forget to drink water while focusing on work. So keep that in mind and bring a big cup of water. Any kind of milk would be great too.
This honestly is the tip that I skip very often, but when I do follow it, I notice a big different. It helps me feel full sooner than usual, which prevents bloating.
Focus on each bite of food, not your phone or the TV.
Practice eating with no distractions. This habit is actually more important than we realize. Staying away from phone or TV while eating helps me to control the habit of eating fast.
That’s all 10 at home treats & tips I personal do to help myself (and other adults in our house) when having indigestion, and to avoid it. You can ask your doctor before taking any of my advices.
See doctors when you have frequent, severe stomach problems, or if any of the symptoms below happen: fever, inability to pass gas, unintentional weight loss, vomiting, bloody stool, dizzy, or headache.
