Certain foods will also cause Indigestion

Because some foods are less easy to digest than others, they can prompt bouts of indigestion among susceptible people ...... and the biggest culprits are:

Raw Salad Vegetables

  • Onions
  • Radishes
  • Cucumbers

Too much Liquid whilst eating dilutes the digestive juices, but a glass of water or wine aids them.

Hot Spicy Foods:

Hot spicy foods like curries especially in large quantities often tend to  "repeat" on oneself.

Fatty Foods:

Fatty foods or fried foods can stimulate acid output in the gut which can cause uncomfortable feelings of indigestion.

 What helps Indigestion Fast?

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dried ground chamomile
  • 1 tablespoon aniseed

Mix well and take a half teaspoon after each meal.

Chamomile has been known through the centuries as an excellent digestive herb, and aniseed is a valuable herb for expelling gas from the stomach.

What is the best thing to drink for Indigestion?
Peppermint Tea

  • Half a teaspoon peppermint essence in
  • half a cup of hot water

The carminative oils in peppermint are soluble in water therefore a peppermint essence will work much better than an infusion made from this herb which is well respected as a digestive aid and its ability to soothe the lining of the stomach.

Now it makes sense which there are always mints available in restaurants when leaving after a good meal.

Try mixing the two, a soothing chamomile infusion with a half teaspoon of peppermint essence, and nail the indigestion from two sides!!

This fruit contains bromelain which is a mixture of enzymes that help to digest protein.
