Indigestion, also called dyspepsia or painful digestion, refers to pain or discomfort after eating. If indigestion is severe, or if it persists for more than a few days, it is best to consult with a qualified practitioner.
Treatment Plan for Indigestion
Indigestion is all too common in our fast-paced society. Stress, eating in a hurry or on the run, poor food combining, and overeating are all contributing factors. To avoid indigestion, eat slowly and leisurely, making sure to chew food thoroughly. A calm environment and rest may help indigestion brought on by stress.
Beneficial herbs include digestive stimulants, bile stimulants, and herbal enzyme-rich foods and herbs (slightly unripe hawthorn fruit, plums and apples, barley sprouts, green papaya and pineapple).
