Today is all about giving thanks and being with people we love. Right? And later, after eating ourselves into a stupor the indigestion kicks in. So what can we do to feel better so we can enjoy the evening?
One thing you can do when that overfilled feeling kicks in is surprising. Drink water. Water helps to dilute the stomach acids that are causing that bloating and burning feeling.
Add a teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of water and drink it up. Baking soda neutralizes the acids causing the distress.
Remember that ginger root tea for tension headaches? Works great for indigestion too.
Eat an apple, including the peel.
Make some cinnamon tea. You can use the powdered cinnamon most of us have in our kitchen. Just add 1/2 teaspoon to a cup of hot water and stir. Drink it while it is hot like you would coffee.
There are plenty of other remedies for indigestion that involve checking your kitchen rather than your medicine cabinet.
So give thanks, eat, drink, be merry and enjoy those football games!
