Understanding Indigestion & Ulcers

Virtually everyone has had indigestion or heartburn at some time, and for most people it is simply a minor nuisance. More often than not, it happens when you have overindulged or eaten something that does not agree with you and it only lasts for a short time.

For some people the symptoms can be persistent and so severe that they interfere with everyday life. The symptoms may be caused by some undiagnosed problem within the digestive system, such as a peptic ulcer, which needs to be properly identified and treated by a doctor. This book will help you distinguish between minor symptoms, which you can safely treat yourself, and those that need further investigation.
