Who hasn’t experienced discomfort after a meal or a day of eating outside food? We all have, and the mistake we all make is to ignore this discomfort, thinking that it’s common. It’s important to consult a doctor at the first signs of recurring indigestion and you should also try some home remedies with ingredients from your kitchen for added benefits.
The pitta dominant location in our stomach is in the region between the chest and navel. Experiencing a burning sensation here shows that you are experiencing indigestion due to an aggravated pitta.
On the other hand, a sensation of gassiness and feeling bloated in the region below your navel signifies an aggravated vata.
Whether your indigestion is caused by pitta or vata, these home remedies will ease your discomfort.
Make a chutney combining pudina (mint leaves), dhaniya (coriander), adrak (ginger), and lemon juice. Mint is excellent at pacifying pitta while coriander is tri-doshic, and ginger and lemon kindle the agni (digestive juices).
Combine 20gm each of saunf (fennel seeds), dhaniya (coriander), jeera (cumin), and pudina (mint) with 10gm kaala namak (black pepper) and 5gm heeng (asafetida) to form a tasty and agni stimulating chooran. Have this 2-3 times throughout the day.
Soak some adrak (ginger) slices in lemon juice and eat it before your meals to fire your Agni and ensure that your food is properly digested.
Like we said earlier, you should not ignore indigestion if it keeps happening again and again. Consult a Jiva doctor for long term relief. You can dial 0129-4040404 from your mobile phone or click on ‘Speak to a Doctor’ under the CONNECT tab in the Jiva Health App.
