We are just days away from the beginning of holiday season. Starting with Thanksgiving it can be one eating and drinking fest after another until January 1st.  Understandably celebration and friends and food and drink are all a part of the season. Although it is best to not over indulge, it happens and that is OK…but there are ways to be prepared by stocking a few items that can help ease the discomfort from celebratory days. Natural Health Center carries an array of products including digestive enzymes, probiotics and homeopathic remedies for indigestion and gas and bloating. Acidil and Gasalia are just two options that work!

Did you know that indigestion and heartburn have similar triggers and treatment may be the same in many instances, but they are not one in the same?  Indigestion is the condition and heartburn occasionally is the symptom of indigestion.

  • Indigestion is a vague feeling of discomfort and pain in the upper abdomen and chest, followed by belching. The symptom of heartburn is a burning pain that usually starts in the chest, behind the breastbone. Other symptoms of indigestion include loss of appetite, flatulence and nausea.


Some common causes of indigestion:

  • Overeating / Eating too fast
  • Chronic or acute gastritis
  • Gastric ulcer
  • Eating fatty or spicy foods
  • Smoking
  • Large amount of caffeine intake
  • Significant alcohol consumption
  • Antibiotics
