Indigestion (dyspepsia)

Indigestion (aka dyspepsia) occurs when the body has difficulty breaking down and assimilating foods. The main symptoms are heartburns, heaviness after meals, belching, gas, flatulence, bloating, nausea and poor appetite.

Indigestion can be easily improved or even eliminated by correcting simple habits. Eating too fast, chewing open-mouthed, or drinking while eating will let air in the digestive tract and can produce serious discomfort. 

Our experts explore causes, symptoms, remedies and lifestyle changes for indigestion, as well as recommend the best herbal remedies available. You can also use our Q&A service to ask a question about indigestion.
