Does anyone else remember? "Plop, plop...fizz, fizz... Oh, what a relief it is!"
And, "I can't believe I ate the whoooooole thing!"
Indigestion, gas, bloating, diarrhea, heart burn...we have many names for what happens when you eat too much and combine too many different foods. Add to that the rise in gluten and dairy intolerance, and the lack of enzymes in our foods, the increase in pesticides and chemicals that are designed to cause an insect's stomach to explode, and experiencing stomach discomfort is almost a given. It can be a bit embarrassing too when you suddenly realize you are about to "cause a stink".
Of course, indigestion and gas are not mandatory. Eating a more whole food diet and more organic foods, doing a colon cleanse and using natural remedies that aid digestion and reduce discomfort are all effective solutions. Adding a quality enzyme supplement and probiotics can also be effective for better digestion and elimination. I love Young Living's Essentialzyme-4 and find I am more comfortable when I take them with my meals.
Here are some great remedies for children and adults with minor stomach discomfort:
