What diet should be taken to avoid from gastric troubles in-spite of taking normal food?

There can be many reasons for improper digestion. Indigestion is probably due to faulty eating habits or an improper balance of good bacteria in your gut.
– People suffering from indigestion should avoid taking alcohol especially beer, beverages containing caffeine, citrus fruits and juices, tomatoes, tomato sauces, chocolate, spicy and fatty food, food made from refined grains such as maida and corn flour.
– Avoid eating big meals especially for dinner as they cause the stomach to produce extra acid to digest the food. Instead, eat small frequent meals.
– Include high fibre food such as wheat bread, brown rice and wheat pasta that contain whole grains, legumes with husk, fruits and vegetables in each meal. Try to have a small bowl of curd with each meal.
– Eat slowly and chew your food well.
– Eat dinner at least 2 hrs before sleeping.
– Avoid drinking too much fluid along with food.
– After eating, maintain upright position for at least 45 minutes.
– Do not do any vigorous activity.
– Include relaxation therapy and yoga to relax and de-stress.
– If you are taking antacids, the best time is approximately one hour after meals or just before the symptoms of reflux begin after the meal. Try another dose approximately two hours after the meal again.
– Keep your head elevated by 6-8 inches when lying down.
– Milk may provide a quick fix, it actually encourages the secretion of more acid during sleep.
– Smoking should be quit.
– Keep a track on your lifestyle and keep a record of what triggered your indigestion episodes.
– Try to have a pro-biotic supplement every day. Intestines contain lot of bacteria which help in digestion of food. Pro-biotic supplements provide billions of good bacteria in one shot. These are usually added to dairy products such as milk, curd, lassi, buttermilk, ice-cream or cheese.

Pro-biotics are also sold as special drinks such as yakut, powders or capsules. It may be a good idea to have a pr-biotic rich supplement once a day. It can be taken at any time of the day.
