7 Things That Can Soothe Your Stomach Better Than Tums
Ever get that feeling that your stomach is going to explode before you even finish your meal? Or maybe you have a sharp pain below the breastbone? That's indigestion—or is it heartburn? Those terms often get thrown about interchangeably, but they're not quite the same thing. Heartburn is that burning sensation in your chest and sour taste in your mouth that could be caused by eating fatty and acidic foods. If you get it often, it could be a symptom of another condition, like gastroesophageal reflux disease. Or it might be a symptom of indigestion. Indigestion (formally called dyspepsia) can be caused by eating less-than-healthy foods, consuming excessive caffeine, and eating too fast, but it can also be linked to stress, anxiety, and other digestive diseases. In addition to heartburn, signs of indigestion include gas, bloating, and feeling too full to finish eating a meal. The next time it strikes, give one of these natural remedies a try.

Get ready to hug your mint plant. Sipping a mug of peppermint tea after eating relaxes the stomach muscles and improves the flow of bile, which helps you to digest fats more quickly, relieving your symptoms. (However, if you have gastroesophageal reflux disease, you shouldn't drink peppermint tea as it could actually make things worse.)
