My first suggestion for those who suffer with indigestion is to chew foods until liquid.
When thorough chewing doesn’t fully resolve the symptoms, the next step is to try avoiding foods that are common triggers of indigestion;
A short list of such foods includes:
Raw cruciferous vegetables
Sugary snack foods that are loaded with highly refined grains (like most store-bought granola bars)
When further help is needed, regular intake of natural foods and botanicals that have long been used in traditional Chinese medicine to improve the overall tone and health of the digestive system.
The most popular and arguably most effective of such foods is ginger. Good for so many of your organs and systems,
Ginger is particularly useful for decreasing bloating and nausea associated with indigestion, motion sickness, sea sickness, and sickness during pregnancy.
Ginger Provides Natural Anti-Inflammatory Effects and in very helpful in relieving the pain caused by chronic arthritis.
Ginger Can Provide Protection Against Colorectal Cancer and Ovarian Cancer.
How to Take Ginger
Ginger tea made by steeping a 1/2-inch slice of fresh ginger in a mug of hot water is usually enough to sooth an irritated digestive tract.
For arthritis-related pain, eating even a quarter inch slice of fresh ginger with food or freshly pressed juices can provide significant relief.
1-inch piece of ginger root, peeled
1 medium tangerine, quartered
1 pint of red grapes, with seeds
2 cups of watermelon, with rind, cubed
4 ounces of sparkling mineral water
Push ginger root, tangerine, grapes, and watermelon through a juicer
Add mineral water to juice and stir well.
If you use a strong blender in place of the juicer, use some of the sparkling mineral water to get the ingredients going and add the remaining water once the ingredients are blended together. Depending on the strength of your blender, you may need to use a strainer if you prefer a clear ginger ale.
Because this recipe for natural ginger ale calls for quite a bit of fruit juice, it’s best to have it only occasionally. If you have trouble maintaining a healthy blood sugar level, you can juice a 1/4 slice of fresh ginger root with six leaves of lettuce, 3 ribs of celery, and 2 carrots for a ginger-flavored green vegetable drink.
