What herbal remedies can treat indigestion?
Some herbal remedies that are useful for indigestion include peppermint, aloe and DGL; food sensitivity testing to avoid triggers is also helpful. Watch integrative medicine expert Julie Chen, MD, share her advice for soothing indigestion naturally.
So there are certain foods that really bother us as an individual. And again, I'm a big proponent of not just giving you supplements to help with the symptoms
but really removing the root of the problem. [INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]
So there are other herbal remedies that you can use for indigestion. I usually will have patients use things like peppermint.
Aloe is also a great option. But one thing that isn't a supplement, per se, but rather is a natural way of looking at indigestion
is you want to go get food sensitivity testing done. So there are certain foods that really bother us as an individual.
And again, I'm a big proponent of not just giving you supplements to help with the symptoms but really removing the root of the problem.
And so finding out the foods that trigger you are probably the most important thing to do. That, a lot of times with my patients in my clinic,
when we get rid of their food triggers, they don't really need much else for their gut symptoms because it goes away. Having said all that with the food testing
and the supplements, again, I do obviously recommend food testing and removing food triggers so that your indigestion is better.
But my favorite indigestion supplement these days is definitely the DGL, which is deglycyrrhizinated licorice.
Because again, it's that treating multiple medical issues with one supplement, which is trying to treat fatigue, as well as supporting
your adrenals and endocrine system, and then helping with your gut symptoms all at once. That's definitely something that you
want to look for in a supplement is to treat multiple things if you can. [AUDIO LOGO]
