Q: What remedies or precautions can help to make sure your digestion doesn't go into overdrive from all that oily and fatty food?
"Oily and fatty food may slow down the emptying of the stomach and this can lead to indigestion and bloating. While prevention is always better than cure, it is not easy to skip such treats during Chinese New Year. So eat moderately and don't consume excessive amounts of oily food if you do not want to suffer thereafter.
"After a heavy meal, you can take some over-the-counter (OTC) medicines such as antacids to relieve heartburn and indigestion.

If symptoms persist, consult your pharmacist for some other pharmacy-only medication to help with your indigestion problems.
