Indigestion (dyspepsia) occurs when food is ineffectively, or not properly processed and absorbed by the digestive system. A pain in the chest or abdomen often occurs soon after eating.
Indigestion may be caused by an underlying disease, or it may be something simple; here are some tips to try before rushing off to the doctor.

Drink a glass of warm water with fresh lemon juice before meals. Do not drink water during the meal, as it may dilute the digestive enzymes in the body, and affect digestion.

Eat food slowly and at a relaxed pace, and chew the food properly; the general yardstick is to chew the food thirty two times before swallowing to prevent indigestion.

Have your dinner early, especially if it is heavy - avoid fried foods and the ones rich in fat at night. Close the kitchen by 7.00pm.
