I get heartburn/ indigestion every afternoon between 2:00-3:00. I recently started eating healthier but I don't think this could affect that. What do you suggest something to help with this?

Hi Anonymous,

What symptoms are you having? Are you having heartburn everyday and only between 2:00 and 3:00? How long has this been going on? What are you eating? Indigestion can be caused by:
* Overeating
* Eating too quickly or at irregular intervals
* Eating greasy, high-fat, or spicy foods
* Drinking caffeine, alcohol, or soda in excess
* Taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen
* Smoking
* Psychological stress
If any of these factors apply to you, you make lifestyle changes. You can always talk to your doctor who will suggest a plan based on the severity of your symptoms.
