Dealing with Indigestion
18 Jun 11
Try drinking Yakult or any other brands with the same product as that. I heard that these products have probiotics or Lactobacillus bacteria which aids or helps in digestion. Whenever I have a full and heavy stomach from eating buffets and heavy meals I always, as much as possible, drink Yakult. I think yogurt and other dairy products also helps. Try artichoke leaf extracts also. It increases bile flow which aids digestion. But of course prevention is still the best cure for indigestion. Don't each much during the night because the body is trying to rest during those times same as your digestive system. Also, don't eat too fast or try to savor your food by chewing it enough to be easily digested by the body. Also, drinking fluids helps keep a regular flow into your digestive system. Also, please try to note what food you can take with my suggestion because I really don't know the food to avoid for pregnant women. I Hope I gave you some ideas to help fight off your problems with indigestion.

Once in a while, I suffer from indigestion. Sometimes it is because I ate too much like from a buffet. Other times, I get indigestion because of vegetables or noodles because I did not drink water before eating these. When I have indigestion, I just stay at home. I think drinking hot tea helps a lot. So I drink around 2 to 3 cups of tea.

I used lemon with black salt and suck on it its not harmful and relieve one of indigestion. Even safe during pregnancy even having a glass of warm water with lemon squeezed in to it just like that helps to avoid indigestion and curd helps too, I hated taking medicines and used to feel nauseated at the sight of them so i just stopped taking them and had a glass of milk and one banana everyday in the morning on empty stomach and didn't gain weight that much and I ate all sorts of fruits and salads in my diet. I never felt weak and my pregnancy went smoothly too. I just took care that I am taking enough iron and calcium in my diet. In my both pregnancies i never had any trouble both were normal deliveries and on time and my both kids had real good weight and didn't even had usual teething problems or jaundice which are common after birth.

I am so sorry, my dear that you are experiencing this, and many have! I was plagued with indigestion, later in the pregnancy, and the only thing that I used was "baking soda" and water! I slept semi-sitting, not so comfortable, but helped to relieve the situation, and somewhat helped to prevent it. I could not sleep laying flat. Have you spoke with your Dr., about common OTC medicines, that do not have many chemicals in them..(very few)! Thankfully, your little Angel will be here soon..Cheers!

I tried the baking soda and water last night it was horrible but helped a little... Today I went to the chemest and got some Zantac and Mylanta.. It worked almost right away.. Here in Australia it was $9.95 for 14 Tablets or $14.95 for 28 tablets of Zantac... The Mylanta was $3.95 for 24 chewable tablets...
