Indigestion (Dyspepsia)

Indigestion (Dyspepsia) usually occurs after eating, and causes symptoms such as discomfort in your upper abdomen or chest. A person can also get indigestion anytime. The feelings of discomfort tend to be a burning feeling in the upper abdomen, belching, pain/discomfort, and/or feeling nauseas.


Most people have suffered with indigestion at some time in their life, however if the symptoms continue over more than three days then consulting a GP would be advisable. For the odd times of indigestion, breathing and yoga will help to relieve the discomfort. Also being mindful about what you eat and making sure you chew your food fully before swallowing will help immensely also.

What is the symptom trying to tell you?

Indigestion tends to be an indication that you are struggling to ‘digest’ something. Perhaps you are having some kind of difficultly assimilating experiences and/or events in your life or in the moment. Sometimes this can also be an indication that you are struggling with change, and a little stuck in some way – in your thoughts, environment, or in relationship(s). There is an element of perfectionism in a person who suffers with indigestion on a regular basis. Indigestion is a symptom, wanting you to make some positive changes in your lifestyle, in your thinking and in your emotions. Writing a journal over a few weeks and reading them later might also show you some insights as to where something is stuck.
