Overeating and drinking place strain on the digestive system and are a major cause of the discomfort of indigestion. Symptoms are heartburn, wind, cramping, hiccoughs and sometime nausea. The problem will often ease itself without a remedy, however, it can become a chronic condition if not treated seriously.
Indigestion has been treated by homeopathy.
Indigestion requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.

|Lycopodium - Many Lycopodium types have a fundamental weakness in the digestive system and a tendency toward anxiety. You may have a sweet tooth and eating just a little can create a sensation of fullness. Often heartburn - a feeling of burning rising from the stomach - can be a problem. Wind and muscle cramps are common. Avoid eating beans and cabbage, which cause flatulence.|
|Nux vomica - The typical Nux vomica type loves good food and drink and is rather prone to over-indulging. The food lies like a great load in your stomach, resulting in hiccoughs, heartburn and nausea. You know that if only you could vomit, you would feel better, but somehow this is not possible. Nux vomica is also known as a good hangover remedy.|
