Indigestion, bloating, acid reflux, diarrhea, or constipation? Ayurveda says your kitchen has the answer. Read to know more.

Did you know our great-great-great ancestors believed that every illness was related to the stomach and was directly or indirectly caused by poor gut conditions? Taking care of your gut is extremely important especially because your gut health decides your body's overall condition. Be it indigestion or bloating, when your gut is not healthy, your body fails to work properly.

Indigestion, gas, acidity, bloating, constipation, and stomach ulcers are all direct effects of the stomach not functioning like it is supposed to. While most of us are used to relying on chemically-heavy pills and tablets whenever a stomach condition arises, that may not be the best possible option to solve digestive problems. Ayurveda, on the other hand, employs natural elements and ingredients to deliver instant relief and long-term solutions to gastrointestinal issues. Take good care of your stomach with the help of Ayurveda. Here are some of the Ayurvedic solutions for common stomach problems.

Feeling Bloated? Try ginger water

Ginger stimulates digestive juices like bile, saliva, and various other compounds that aid digestion, thus it's great for better absorption and assimilation of nutrients. Indigestion is one of the root causes of bloating. Undigested food produces toxins that lead to serious health problems.
