Indigestion Remedy Ideas That You Can Consider

Aug 17, 2007
Indigestion regularly affect over 35% of all Americans. Indigestion can happen due to eating too quickly and eating too much at one go. There are many home indigestion remedy ideas that have been used to combat the painful symptoms associated with the condition. Here are a couple of them for you to consider.

Baking soda has been shown to be a popular and effective home remedy. In fact, there are many of the indigestion remedy products for sale in the pharmacies are based on sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). By dissolving a small amount of baking soda in water and drinking it the excess acid in the stomach which causes the pain can be neutralized. This indigestion remedy is good for occasional indigestion however using it on a regular basis can lead to water retention and alkalinity of the blood which are undoubtedly much more serious conditions than the original acid reflux!

Trapped gas in the stomach makes the pain of acid reflux worse as the acid is pushed out of the stomach and up the oesophagus with more force. Therefore some Americans do their best to burp the excess gas out and so relieve the pressure and pain. One extreme way to do this is to lie on the floor on your stomach so applying maximum pressure to the area. This however is not advisable, especially just after a meal as vomiting and other related pain i.e. in the intestines and bladder, can often occur.

Continuing with the burping theme, other individuals have found that drinking fizzy beverages and in particular ginger ale helps to relieve trapped gas and so they used the drink as an indigestion remedy. While this is more preferable to lying on the stomach it is still an odd treatment and should only be tried if you know you are not sensitive to fizzy drinks i.e. if you know that fizzy drinks make your acid reflux worse then do not try this remedy in order to burp out trapped gas.

This last home indigestion remedy idea is the most bizarre. According to some, blowing tobacco smoke into the stomach of an acid reflux sufferer can drive out the evil spirits that are causing the pain. Whether this is because the sufferer is physically sick from the smoke and so expels the excess acid remains to be seen. But it sure is an idea that you may dismiss as a myth .
