Dyspepsia
Herbal & Home Remedies Herbal Remedies Home Remedies

Dyspepsia is the term applied to difficulty in digesting food. Its means painful, difficult or disturbed digestion. Dyspepsia affects almost one-forth of the adult population in the U.S.

It is often defined as a chronic or recurrent discomfort centered in the upper abdomen and can be caused by a variety of conditions.

It includes a group of symptoms that come from a problem in your upper gut. The gut is the tube that starts at the mouth, and ends at the anus. The pain might come and go, but it is normally there most of the time.

There are three types of dyspepsia:

1) Ulcer- in which the primary symptom is pain.
2) Motility-in which the primary symptoms may be bloating and gas.
3) Reflux-in which the primary symptom is similar to that of heartburn

Symptoms

These are symptoms which might include nausea, regurgitation (backwash of stomach contents into the esophagus or mouth), vomiting, heartburn, prolonged abdominal fullness or bloating after a meal, stomach discomfort or pain, and early fullness.

You may have a "sick feeling in the stomach," or "indigestion," or maybe "nervous stomach" when they are suffering from dyspeptic symptoms.

You may experience these symptoms after overeating, or eating foods that disagree with them. The symptoms may also accompany a disease such as peptic ulcer disease, gallbladder disease, or gastritis.

Other people experience the symptoms for no apparent reason. The symptoms can last for a few days, sometimes longer. In some people, dyspeptic symptoms can be severe and continuous, disrupting daily routines and causing absence from work.

Although dyspepsia can afflict men and women from all walks of life, it is most common in women ranging in age from 16 to 60. A woman is even more likely to experience dyspepsia during her childbearing years. Also patients in whom irritable bowel syndrome has been diagnosed comprise the majority of dyspepsia sufferers.

Causes

 

The main causes for dyspepsia are overeating, eating wrong food combinations, eating too rapidly and neglecting proper mastication and salivation of food, overeating makes the work of the stomach, liver, kidneys, and bowels harder. When the food putrefies, its poisons are absorbed into the blood and, consequently, the whole system is poisoned.

Certain foods, especially if they are not properly cooked, cause dyspepsia. Fried foods as well as rich and spicy foods often cause abdominal discomfort and gas or aggravate the existing condition.

Other causes of dyspepsia are excessive smoking, intake of alcohol, constipation, insomnia, emotions such as jealousy, fear and anger and lack of exercise.

Home Remedies

Lemon (bara nimbu) : The use of fruits in general is beneficial in the treatment of Dyspepsia. They flush out the undigested food residue and accumulated faeces, and re-establish health to perfect order. The best of the fruits is lemon. Its juice reaches the stomach and attacks the bacteria, inhibiting the formation of acids. Lemon juice removes indigestion by dislodging this acid and other harmful substances from the stomach, thereby strengthening and promoting a healthy appetite.

Grapes : This fruit is light food which removes indigestion and irritation of the stomach in a short time. It also relieves heat.

Pineapple : Pineapple acts as a tonic and relieves much of the digestive disorders. Half a glass of pineapple juice should be taken after a meal in treating this condition.

Pomegranate : The juice of a pomegranate mixed with a tablespoon of honey is valuable in indigestion accompanied by giddiness. The dose may be repeated a few times if necessary.

Stop smoking. A major factor in dyspepsia is the physical reaction in the throat and esophagus to smoking. By quitting smoking it will reduce the risk of developing dyspepsia and other serious health conditions, such as heart disease and lung cancer.

Manage your stress in your daily life. Stress increases your risk for developing dyspepsia. Instead of sitting in front of the television or computer, go for a walk. Indulge in simple pleasures that take your mind off of the daily bump and grind of life.

Try to reduce fat in your diet. Fat and fatty foods can trigger dyspepsia conditions and complicate digestion. By following a low-fat diet you can greatly reduce digestive complications, promote overall health and prevent dyspepsia discomforts.

Be aware of certain foods that cause stomach discomforts during your daily routine. Once you have identified particular foods that trigger discomfort, avoid them in your diet to prevent the onset of dyspepsia. Lactose products such as milk and cheese are common foods that cause dyspepsia and are easily avoided by the use of milk/lactose replacement products.

Never take large amounts of anti-inflammatory medications, as they can severely irritate the stomach. These include naproxen, aspirin, ketoprofen and ibuprofen. Use acetaminophen as an alternative medication that does not harshly irritate the stomach or cause dyspepsia conditions.
