Indigestion may be described as heartburn, acid reflux, or general discomfort after eating.
Naturopathic medicine treats each person as an individual. Not everyone’s root cause is the same.
ND’s take a thorough examination so all potential triggers are questions:
There are a lot of different natural ways to approach indigestion before resorting to conventional medications over-the-counter or otherwise.
Eliminating potential food triggers, losing weight, chewing your food slowly, drinking fresh lemon juice in water upon rising and throughout the day, and having dandelion tea can all improve digestion. Apple cider vinegar can improve hydrochloric acid in your stomach, allowing your food to be broken down more efficiently.
Whatever your root cause is, be rest assured that a Naturopathic Doctor has a lot of tools in her tool-belt to get the job done, whether it’s acupuncture, nutrition, homeopathy, or lifestyle changes!
