Home Remedy For Indigestion And Stomach Upset

After all those delicious International recipes from all over the world, to day I am going to post a home remedy for indigestion and stomach upset. This home remedy is from my mother's treasure. My mother never use a medicine for common ailments, she always use simple home remedy's. She always explain the medicinal values in ingredients what we use every day cooking.
                                                   This black pepper and coriander powder my mother always keep handy . This helps a lot in stomach upset, just make a powder with all the ingredients and mix it with plain steamed rice, or you can have it with butter milk. 
Ingredients in this powder....
Coriander.. I can say this is a wonder seed, it has many vitamins and no cholesterol, contain iron. And the health benefits of coriander is, It controls cholesterol levels, diarrhea, mouth ulcers, anemia, indigestion, menstrual disorders, blood sugar disorders and also eye care.
Here is a small remedy for reduce the body heat:--
1. Boil 1/2 lit. water with a tab sp coriander seeds till water reduce to 1/4 lit.
2. Remove from flame and let it cool and add 1 tea sp of candy sugar or normal sugar to it  mix well and drink it in the empty stomach every day for three days this helps a lot.

Cumin... This one is a flavorful seed which we use a lot in every day cooking. But this has a wonderful medicinal values, it helps a lot in digestion, improves immunity, common cold and anemia.
One year back I became anemic my doctor gave me some medicines for one month then he told me to take food that reduce my anemic problem. When I was talking to my mother about my problem, she told me that mix one tab sp of jaggery with a tea sp of cumin seeds and have it this helps a lot. I used this remedy for one year and still using along with other iron rich food. Now my hemoglobin levels are good and I am not using any medicine now...

Curry leaves... Curry leaves with out this herd we can not think about our curries specially in South india. Curry leaves contain antioxidants, they helps to control gastrointestinal problems. Dry curry leaves powder helps to control blood sugar and cholesterol and rich in iron. So pleas do not remove the curry leaves from your curry, eat them...

Black Pepper is one of the popular spice of India. Black pepper is widely used in many home remedies as a medicine. Black pepper contain a very high amount of manganese and also rich in iron and dietary fiber. Black pepper is native to south India, before we introduced to chillies we use black pepper in our cooking. Very sadly we slowly for getting this wonderful spice. Because we started using chillies in the place of black pepper. I saw some people thinking that black pepper is only for seasoning soups, Red chillies gives a better taste then black pepper? try black pepper and let me know. Because black pepper has many medicinal values like it improves digestion, stimulates the taste buds. This spice helps to prevent diarrhea and constipation,prevents gastric problems and many more like this...
