Digestion disorders may cause serious problems not just to your gut, but may link to other complications such as: gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, belching, flatulence, food sensitivities, indigestion, malabsorption, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticular disease, inflammatory bowel disease, leaky gut syndrom, candidiasis, allergies, appendicities and even acne!

These are the main causes of indigestion:

Eating too rapidly or not chewing properly.
Overeating makes the work of stomach, liver, kidneys and bowels harder.
The food not properly cooked.
Fried foods as well as rich and spicy foods often cause abdominal discomfort and gas, and aggravate the existing condition.
Excessive smoking and intake of alcohol can also cause stomach upsets.
Drinking too much water with meals,insomnia, emotions such as jealousy, fear and anger and lack of exercise are among the other causes of indigestion.
The only effective treatment for indigestion is a thorough cleansing of the digestive tract; adoption of a sensible diet and a change in the style of living.

The best way to commence the treatment is to adopt an all-fruit diet for about five days. After the all-fruit diet, the patient may take to a restricted diet of easily digestible foods, consisting of lightly cooked vegetables, juicy fruits and buttermilk for about 10 days. Patient may thereafter gradually embark upon awell-balanced diet.

To avoid Indigestions, these are the 9 rules regarding on how to eat properly:

Never eat and drink together.Water or other liquids should be taken half an hour before and one hour after a meal.
Never hurry through a meal. Eat very slowly and chew your food as thoroughly as possible.
Never eat to a full stomach. Always leave the table with a feeling that you could eat more, in other words stop eating before you feel full.
Never sit down to a meal, feeling worried, tired, excited or in a bad temper as such feelings temporarily paralyze the manufacture of digestive juices including hydrochloride.
Do not eat if appetite is lacking. Miss a meal or two, if necessary, until real appetite returns.
Never boil vegetables, always steam them.
Do not mix too many foods at the same meal.
Never eat raw vegetables and raw fruits together as they require a different set of enzymes to be digested.
