Health Tip: Help Prevent Indigestion

Indigestion may be the upshot of overeating or gobbling up too much food that "disagrees" with you.

In addition to avoiding foods that you don't tolerate well, the American Academy of Family Physicians says you can also help prevent indigestion by:
  • Limiting greasy, high-fat foods.
  • Limiting consumption of chocolate.
  • Eating slowly without rushing.
  • Not smoking.
  • Managing stress and relaxing.
  • Resting at least an hour after a meal before starting strenuous activity or exercise.
