5 foods that are bad for digestion

Have indigestion? This could be why

From the burning sensation in the stomach to the intolerable bloating – it sucks.

The good thing is that it can be handled either through taking medication or if you aren’t the medicine taking type, you can try these natural remedies to help get rid of indigestion.

Every remedy has a cause or a trigger that may have made the situation worse. Here are 5 foods that can make indigestion worse.

Coffee

Caffeine can act as a stimulator in your body which will make you prone to diarrhea. If you are experiencing diarrhea as a result of indigestion, you may want to lay off the coffee.

Dairy products

When you hear people say they are lactose intolerant it basically means that the lactose in dairy products is hard for them to digest which in turn leads to gas and bloating.

You may not want to worsen indigestion by taking dairy products.

Acidic foods

Ditch the citrus foods such as lemons and oranges when dealing with indigestion. They may upset the stomach lining. Acidic foods include carbonated drinks as well.

Fatty foods

Fatty foods assist in stimulating the digestive tract which can result to slowing down digestion or speeding it up thus worsening constipation.

This means staying away from foods such as butter, red meat and cheese.

Processed foods

Processed foods do not have fiber which makes them one of the worst foods to eat when suffering from indigestion.
