Most people experience indigestion from time to time. Symptoms can include pain, burning sensations, or even nausea. Thankfully, once you learn how to improve digestion with Ayurveda, you'll be able to get the relief that you need.
Chronic indigestion can be a source of stress, and it can make it difficult for you to feed and nourish your body. Ayurvedic practices can help you to treat your digestion issues in an effective and lasting way.
Find Out What's Causing Your Digestive Issues
In order to treat your digestion problems, you'll need to determine the root cause of the issue. Saumya Ayurveda can work with you to determine why your body isn't tolerating certain types of foods. Many clients struggling with these issues have found relief after a consultation.
"Three years ago, I had come back from India searching for a local Certified Ayurvedic
Practitioner to help me continue my Ayurvedic journey and I was so grateful to find Veena!
During our first consultation, she asked all of the right questions to truly understand the
underlying causes of my sleep and digestive issues.
Veena was very thorough in her questions, research and follow-up to determine the right
treatment plan, recommend the right activities, and practices along with special spices and
herbalized oils to help me feel better and restore my energy. I continue to meet with Veena
seasonally to reassess and guide me with Ayurveda tools that keep me in balance year-round.
Thank you Veena."

"It's amazing how easy it is to integrate Veena's suggestions into my daily life. It's as though my body is saying to me, "Finally! Thank you for treating me better! This is what I've been wanting all along!" The improvements in my digestion and sleep were felt not after a month, or a week, but I experienced immediate relief. Saumya Ayurveda should not, must not, be a secret! Thank you."

Reduce Portion Sizes
When you eat too much food in a single sitting, your body isn't able to properly break down the food that you've consumed. Overeating can also cause your body to produce more acid, which can cause reflux, indigestion, and other unpleasant symptoms.
It's important to build a diet full of nourishing foods so that you can feel full even when eating a smaller meal. The right foods will give your body the fuel that it needs, even when you eat less of them.
Drink More Tea
Herbal tea has been used as a remedy for more than two thousand years. It can relieve all kinds of health symptoms, and it can be especially effective at relieving indigestion. If you're experiencing bloating, stomach pain, or other issues, a cup of hot ginger tea could provide instant relief.
While you can buy pre-made ginger tea at any grocery store, you can also make your own tea at home from fresh ginger! Just add a teaspoon of grated ginger to a mug of hot water. You can start sipping on your tea after it's had a few minutes to steep.
Learn How to Improve Digestion with Meditation
Meditation and breathing exercises can calm and center the body. When you are stressed, your stomach produces more acid, which can cause the digestive system to become less effective. Vata imbalance can also lead to digestive issues.
If possible, you should try to set aside five minutes each day for meditation. You may find that it's best to meditate at the start of your day, when you have fewer worries on your mind. If you begin your day with meditation, you'll have fewer digestive issues as the day goes on.
If you regularly experience indigestion after meals, it's time for you to make a change. Set up a free consultation at Saumya Ayurveda so that you can take control of your health. Now is the time for you to make changes that will have a positive impact on your life.
