Well, lifestyle changes still going well and we have tried out some of the natural remedies but so far nothing seems to do the trick for curing my husband’s indigestion problems but I continue my search. I still believe that we will find something natural that will work so that he can stop taking medication and his symptoms will be cured completely. So I have been busy researching some more things to try out.
Peppermints are thought to be a brilliant natural cure for indigestion. Using its menthol content peppermint works by relaxing the valve between the gullet and stomach helping to release trapped gas that can cause indigestion.
Chamomile tea is made from aromatic plants. The effect of it is to help to get rid of gas, the same as peppermints. Feeling relaxed is a natural side effect of chamomile so be careful when you take it!
Basil tea is a herb with leaves that are aromatic and should be drunk before eating so that it can prevent indigestion. To make it pour hot water on two or three basil leaves in a cup and then cover the cup. Leave for about ten minutes, take out the basil leaves and then add sweetener if desired.
Acidophilus is thought to be another good remedy for indigestion. Being a good type of bacteria it helps in fighting some of the elements that cause indigestion. It’s available in a liquid, powder or in tablet form.
After each meal drink some pineapple juice. This will prevent burping and the build up of gas. It is important not to stop drinking pineapple juice even after the initial symptoms of indigestion are gone.
Ginger and lemon juice combined can also cure indigestion. Simply add ginger and lemon juice to honey for an effective indigestion remedy.
