Tips For Indigestion Relief

By Sandra Kim Leong

Obtaining indigestion relief can add to your overall well being. If you have been having chronic constipation, and feeling the effects of bloatedness, it is a situation that you need not live with on a daily basis. Indigestion is also often referred to as having an upset stomach or dyspepsia. It is a common digestive disorder that affects millions of people. For many, it is a part of their daily lives.  

There are many symptoms that you can suffer from in order to know that your digestive system is out functioning properly. Some of the symptoms of indigestion include:  

1. Abdominal pain in the stomach area. If you are experiencing a burning in the middle part of your belly, then it can be a case of indigestion.  

2. Bloating. Bloating is the feeling of having a full stomach. If you feel that your stomach is near to the point of bursting, then it could be due to indigestion.  

3. Nausea. You may feel nauseous after meals. Nausea is the desire to want to vomit and may be accompanied with feeling faint and dizziness as well. If you vomit blood instead, then indigestion is not the cause and you need to be seen by a physician.  

4. Heartburn.  A burning sensation in the chest can be caused by indigestion.  

5. Burping. Burping is sometimes considered a normal part of life, but burping that is difficult to control can be a symptom of indigestion.  

Indigestion relief can be obtained when you make some changes to your eating habits and the foods that you consume. Here are some easy tips:  

1. If you eat foods that your stomach cannot tolerate well, eat foods too fast, or eat too much, then you could have indigestion. Consider changing your eating habits to eating slowly, more frequent and smaller meals and to also stay away from highly acidic foods.  

2. Consider drinking more water and eating high fiber foods for easy bowel movements.  

3. Other factors that can cause indigestion are stress, alcohol consumption, smoking, and bad sleep habits. Consider reducing these factors to improve on your digestive function.  

4. Get regular exercise and sufficient rest.  Having a healthy body helps in keeping indigestion at bay.  

In most situations, indigestion is not a very serious condition on its own. It can be easily fixed when you make the above mentioned changes. If despite making the changes and if you are unable to find indigestion relief, then it is possible that what you are suffering from may be another more serious condition. If you find that you are losing your appetite because of a bloated stomach, are short of breath, sweat more than normal, throw up, or have black or bloody stools, then you should go and check them up. Consult your physician immediately to determine the real cause of your symptoms.
