How to remove indigestion?

Eat when you are hungry. Do not eat anything between meals. Eat slowly in a calm
mood. Chew properly. Eat moderately. Avoid many combinations of food. Drink a glass of
water one hour before or after food, never with a meal. Fast on Ekadasi. Eat nothing before 9
a.m. or after 7 p.m. Take care of your teeth. Just before or after a meal, avoid all exertion, mental
or physical. Relax at least for half an hour. A long brisk walk is beneficial. Paschimottanasan,
Halasan, Bhujangasan, Salabhasan, Dhanurasan, Mayurasan - these Yogasans will remove
indigestion. Depression of mind, cares, worries and anxieties also affect the stomach. Be
cheerful. Be regular in your Japa.
