Home remedies for Digestive problems

Home remedies for Digestive problems

Eating your favourite food can be a delight to your taste buds. But consuming too much of your favourite food can sometimes lead to indigestion.

Pain or burning sensation in the upper stomach, uncomfortable abdominal fullness after eating are some of the symptoms of indigestion.

Indigestion isn’t a disease, but rather a symptom of other gastrointestinal problems. Some of the common symptoms of indigestion or upset stomach 

  1. Heart burn or acid reflux
  2. Nausea
  3. Bloating
  4. Gas
  5. Farting
  6. Bad-smelling or sour breadth
  7. Hicupping or coughing.

Instead of popping pills for indigestion, it is advisable to use home remedies. Let us now look at some of the common home remedies.

Home remedies

  • Drinking water: The body needs water to efficiently digest and absorb nutrients from foods and beverages. Being dehydrated makes digestion more difficult and less effective, which increases the likelihood of an upset stomach.

Additionally, drinking water may help reduce heartburn.

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 

For those with digestive issues, it is imperative to stay hydrated. Vomiting and diarrhoea can quickly lead to dehydration, so people with these symptoms should keep drinking water.

  • Avoid lying down immediately after eating:
Avoiding lying down may prevent indigestion from becoming heartburn.When the body is horizontal, the acid in the stomach is more likely to travel backward and move upward, which can cause heartburn. People with an upset stomach should avoid lying down or going to bed for at least a few hours until it passes.
  • Consuming Ginger
Ginger helps in reducing nausea and vomit. People with an upset stomach could try adding ginger to their food or adding it to tea. Chewing on ginger candy can also reduce vomitting sensation.
  • Avoiding smoking and drinking alcohol
Quitting smoking and limiting alcohol intake improves people’s quality of life and reduces the risk of certain health conditions, such as cancer.
  • Lime, Lemon juice, baking soda and water
Mixing lime or lemon juice in water with a pinch of baking soda can help relieve heartburn and indigestion by reducing stomach acidity.
  • Fennel Seeds
This antispasmodic herb can also remedy indigestion after a meal, as well as soothe other gastrointestinal problems like stomach cramping, nausea, and bloating.

Put 1/2 teaspoon of crushed fennel seed in water and allow it to boil for 10 minutes before drinking. Drink fennel tea whenever you experience indigestion. Another option is to chew fennel seed after meals if certain foods cause indigestion.

Now let us look at some of the easy ways to prevent indigestion and stomach pain
eating slower
