Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity Stack

General Health Stack 452  
Indigestion, also called dyspepsia, is basically a sign of an underlying problem, such as ulcers, gallbladder disease, or gastroesophageal reflux disease. On the other hand, heartburn refers to the burning pain in your chest, and is often worse when lying down or bending over. Contrary to the popular belief, indigestion is usually caused by low stomach acid, also called hypochlorhydia, and affecs up to half of our population. Stay away from foods that fuel the flames of heartburn and indigestion. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
