5 Yoga Poses To Cure Indigestion
Indigestion can occur without any specific cause and is caused by poor or irregular eating habits. The stomach releases excess acid. It is normal for the stomach to release acid as the food is broken down with the acid here. However, the excess is not good. This is where the problem begins. Indigestion is characterized by stomach pain, stomach irritation, stomach pain, stomach swelling, and insufficient water intake.
