Definition of Dyspepsia: Homeopathic Treatment

Definition of Dyspepsia?

In easy terms of definition, dyspepsia is also known as indigestion. It is a condition in which a person feels pain or discomfort in the stomach, caused by indigestion.

Dyspepsia is painful, difficult or disturbed digestion accompanied by symptoms such as:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Heartburn
  • Stomach pain
  • Bloating
  • Stomach discomfort

Causes of Dyspepsia

Dyspepsia can be caused by:

  • Bacterial or viral infection
  • Peptic ulcer
  • Gallbladder
  • Liver disease
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Fizzy Drinks
  • Caffeine
  • Sensitivity or Allergy to Food
  • Stress or emotional unrest
  • Side effects from a certain medication

When there is no certain cause for Dyspepsia then that condition is known as functional or non-ulcer dyspepsia. There is evidence that functional dyspepsia may be related to abnormal motility (a contraction of stomach muscles) of the upper gastrointestinal tract. In this case, the esophagus, stomach and upper intestine behave abnormally.
