Heartburn, indigestion, dispepsia, upset stomach – call it what you like, it’s no fun at all. Evidently, occurrences of indigestion increase as you get older. Sadly for me, I was starting to suffer from this internal inferno up to 4 to 5 times per week. The pain often kept me up all night. I tried every over-the-counter and home remedy I could find, none of which took care of the problem. My husband and I are very busy people and often eat our dinner later than most. I found that most days, after finishing dinner, I was soooo tired that I just plopped down on the couch where I stayed until bedtime. One evening as I was literally curled up on the couch, I became aware of the position of my stomach – all crunched up in a ball. I wondered if this could be causing my trouble. Being a scientist by education, I commenced a little experiment. I decided to keep myself upright for a period of time right after my dinner. What an easy (and might I add FREE) fix!! Besides all the money I am saving on antacids, I have bought back (so to speak) over 2 hours per week of time that was being wasted on the couch. It’s the perfect time to do the dishes rather than leave them piled in the sink, get a little ironing done, take the recyclables to the bins, etc. Since I am no longer staying up multiple nights a week with tummy trouble, this 15-20 minutes after each dinner is an invaluable investment. This is the freebie of all freebies!!
