Treating Indigestion (dyspepsia) with Aloe VeraDescription: Most people have indigestion (dyspepsia), or upset stomach at some point. Usually, It's not a sign of anything more serious. The symptoms vary but usually include: heartburn – a painful burning feeling in the chest, often after eating, feeling full and bloated, discomfort in your upper abdomen, feeling sick, belching and breaking wind, bringing up food or bitter-tasting fluids into your mouth.
Less frequent symptoms include vomiting and belching. Back pain or stomach ache are usually not symptoms of indigestion. Sometimes people with indigestion also experience heartburn, but heartburn and indigestion are two separate conditions. However, they can both be triggered by food, drink or medication.
Indigestion has many possible dietary or emotional causes causes: overeating or eating too quickly, fatty, greasy or spicy foods, caffeine, alcohol, chocolate or carbonated beverages, smoking, anxiety, certain antibiotics, pain relievers and iron supplements.
But sometimes indigestion can also be caused by other digestive conditions: inflammation of the stomach (gastritis), peptic ulcers, Celiac disease, gallstones, constipation, pancreas inflammation (pancreatitis), stomach cancer, intestinal blockage and intestinal ischemia.
What can I do about Indigestion (dyspepsia)?
If you want to treat your condition naturally, or in conjunction with a conventional treatment, you might like to try using our Aloe Vera gel. The gel contains dozens of different nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, sugars, anthraquinones or phenolic compounds, lignin, saponins, sterols and salicylic acid. Often these are the very constituents found in your medication.
How do I use my gel when it arrives?
Take a frozen cube of your gel and allow it to dissolve in a little warm water. We usually dissolve ours in about 150ml of water, but more or less is ok. Take a few sips at a time while you enjoy a healthy meal, or drink at the end of your meal. As most of us seem to have our main meal of the day in the early evening because of work committments, then this is perhaps the best time to take your aloe gel drink.
However, everyone is different. Some people get better relief when they take their aloe with their meal. Others prefer to take it when they get up in the morning, so it has chance to work during the day to even out discomfort, bloating and pain. Others prefer to take it before retiring at night so it has a chance to work and heal all night before the daytime onslaught of food and drink that will undoubtedly follow the next day. Work out a system that is best for you and amend it to suit changes in your diet or work schedule. Don't be afraid to experiment.
We have many people taking this for indigestion and other digestive issues now and they all swear by it. So please don't be afraid to give it a try.
What do I do when my leaves arrive? Just follow these simple instructions.

Disclaimer: Aloe Vera is known to be a wonderful cure-all around the world and back again. But it is always best to keep an open mind on both sides of the orthodox and natural remedies debate, and cherry pick the best solution on a condition by condition basis. Natural remedies alone may not always help to cure your condition, especially if there are contributory factors. If the condition worsens or takes longer than anticipated to recover, you are advised to contact your doctor. Normally, your aloe may be used along with any conventional medical treatment offered.
