Many people who suffer from indigestion change their diets, check out the possibility of food allergies, or turn to over-the-counter remedies, but this guide suggests thatwhatis eaten is less likely to cause discomfort thanhowit is eaten. Describing unconscious eating habits that aggravate visceral-somatic symptoms, this organ-by-organ overview of the entire digestive tract praises its remarkable efficiency and describes sensations that are clues to stress, overeating, or eating too fast. The role of sight and smell in eating is also described, and the message throughout is that conscious awareness when eating and savoring food can help to prevent stomach and intestinal pain.
