What Is Indigestion?

Read Transcript

Indigestion is not a medical term, it is a term used by many people to just indicate stomach upset when they are not truly feeling well, but it could signify nausea, heart burn or stomach pain, it's a little bit vague and not really used in the medical world. When people use the term indigestion, I always ask them, what are you feeling exactly and how often are you feeling it? It's normal to once in a while have a bit of an upset stomach or some heart burn after eating, but if it's happening frequently your indigestion might be a sign of something more serious going on, leaky gut or even an ulcer, so you should always discuss it with your doctor.
