Indigestion generally occurs when people eat in excess, so fast, or when they have eaten foods that do not stay well in the stomach – for instance, spicy foods. Digestive disorders, like ulcers, can cause indigestion also. Bile reflux and gastritis are also categorized as indigestion. Stress and worry can equally engineer the secretion of excess stomach acids. These acids give rise to hyperacidity; this implied that a pretty mild meal could still lead to indigestion. By and large, most cases of indigestion can be associated with improper eating habits – for example, eating excessively fast and swallowing air, which then leads to the trapped wind that can be very painful. Carbonated beverages or acidic beverages (like wine) can also create horrible episodes of bloating and indigestion.
Healthy Tips for Preventing Indigestion
Stay away from foods that you know cause trouble in the stomach. (This could be spicy foods, certain seafoods).
Consume several little meals all through instead of 1 or 2 enormous meals at a single sitting.
As much as you can, run away from fatty, oily foods or processed foods that are high in fat and salt content, such as fast foods.
Eat gradually and make sure you chew food well.
Do not drink carbonated drinks with your meal. It is recommended that you wait until 15 minutes after a meal before drinking the beverage – and even then, small sips are best.
Quit smoking in a natural way.
Ensure you relax and reduce stress.
Always allow your body to digest food! Do not get involved in any activity directly after a meal. Endeavor to eat at least an hour before or eat after engaging in sports or being physically active.
