How To Avoid IndigestionNo Comments
Indigestion can be horrible and if you’re experiencing the symptoms more often than not you would be wise to seek nutritional advice from a Nottingham specialist to see if there are any lifestyle changes you can make that will help.
Symptoms of indigestion include a burning sensation in your upper abdomen or stomach, heartburn, bloating, abdominal pain, nausea, belching, vomiting or diarrhoea. Stress can exacerbate these symptoms, something you may well have found already.
Avoiding certain foods that seem to cause indigestion is the best way of preventing the onset of symptoms, but you can also do yourself a lot of good by eating smaller meals so your stomach doesn’t have to work so hard for so long and by eating slowly.
Consider steering clear of caffeine as this will cause your stomach to produce greater amounts of acid, as will foods like tomatoes and citrus fruits.
Smoking and drinking alcohol can also irritate your stomach lining so think about cutting back or quitting in these areas as well.
It might also be advisable to try and manage your stress better as well. It’s natural to feel stressed from time to time but if it’s affecting your digestive health, something must be done. You might want to schedule regular massages or start going to yoga, or you might even find that practicing mindfulness techniques could help keep the stress at bay.
