Certain foods can cause frequent indigestion. So if you want to know what they are, keep reading!
If you’re affected by acid reflux, or even much more serious GERD, you may be able to get rid of it simply by modifying your diet. You may not need to take medication or choose to undergo a surgical procedure to fix the problem.
It is very common to suffer from acid reflux at night, so make the decision not to eat after dinner. Try to stop eating 2-3 hours before bedtime. The message is simple…don’t eat before bed if you can (and usually can) avoid it.
Diet may be the best routine you can adjust to reduce acid reflux. If you want to reduce your chances of heartburn, try to stay away from acidic foods. Juices and coffee should be reduced or eliminated, as well as anything that contains alcohol.
Often, the foods you love seem palatable, but they can cause your stomach to produce acid, which in turn creates conditions conducive to heartburn. Foods that contain a lot of fat, such as chocolate (yes, chocolate), and hot foods that contain peppers will induce acid reflux. Foods that use tomato sauce, like lasagna, are a massive trigger when it comes to indigestion and should be eaten in reasonable amounts.
If you really want to avoid the pain and discomfort of indigestion, you need to think about portion control. Reduce the amount of food you eat. It’s really that simple. If your stomach is too full, food will literally be pushed up your esophagus, and since it mixes with all the acid in your stomach, it can create that very painful burning sensation.
Avoiding frequent indigestion is all about the small changes you make to your diet and when you choose to eat.
