How to Treat Indigestion?

Depending on the cause, the doctor might suggest the treatment. It often includes over the counter medicines, doing lifestyle changes and following psychological therapies. Over the counter medicines often suggested are antacids, H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors.

The doctor may advise the affected person to stop taking certain foods and drinks such as alcoholic beverages, carbonated drinks, foods or drinks that contain caffeine, foods containing a lot of acids, and spicy, fatty and greasy foods.

Talk therapy, a type of psychological therapy, is used to treat anxiety and depression that cause indigestion. If stress remains the cause behind indigestion, the doctor recommends meditation and relaxation exercises to manage it.
