CAUSES – Overeating, eating while under stress, and overindulging in alcohol can bring on indigestion.  Obesity is the most common cause of chronic indigestion.

TREATMENT – There is no single remedy.  Antacids have always been good to use for heartburn.  If indigestion continues, you should contact your doctor for a physical examination. Peppermint (Mentha pipperita) tea, chamomile, or lemon balm is good for bloating or gas problems.

PREVENTION – By watching your weight and avoid overeating, indigestion can happen less often.  It is not entirely avoidable.
