Well, we have started to implement our lifestyle changes but it has not been at all easy but we are going along doing the best we can! The good news is that we both feel much healthier and have loads more energy. My husband’s indigestion is better than it was but his symptoms are not completely gone and he still relies on medication for relief.
So, we are now happy that we are tackling the obvious natural indigestion treatment and that is to make important lifestyle changes. We have changed our diet and we are tackling our bad habits – we are stopping smoking and we are avoiding excessive alcohol intake. We are also exercising more. Of course, these changes are much easier said than done so we are both doing the best we can by gradually decreasing our smoking and drinking habits and increasing our exercise times.
I have since done a little more research and I have discovered that an effective acid indigestion treatment is ginger. You can take ginger supplement as a pill or syrup and these can be brought in any health food shop. You can also make your own ginger tea by boiling some ginger in water! The substances contained in ginger will neutralize stomach acid thereby eliminating the symptoms of acid indigestion.
Aloe vera is well known for its wonderful healing properties. Most people are aware that it is great for the skin but apparently it is also used for healing many digestive disorders too.
I pointed out to my wife that a massive benefit of these natural indigestion treatments is that they tackle the root of the problem whereas over the counter medication simply eases symptoms and does not address the real cause of indigestion.
