Lay off the BOOZE

While indigestion is not a distinct condition, it may be a sign of an underlying intestinal disorder.Indigestion, is medically known as dyspepsia, and is a term used to describe the feeling of fullness or discomfort during or after a meal. It can also be accompanied by a burning or sharp pain in the upper stomach…YIKES! Unfortunately, people of all ages and of both sexes can be affected by indigestion…so NO ONE can hide.

There are numerous causes of indigestion, however, one specific cause of indigestion it too much alcohol. An individual’s risk of indigestion is increased through excess alcohol consumption because alcohol can severely irritate stomach lining, THUS, causing indigestion!

So take it easy over the holidays and limit your alcohol intake.
