Indigestion could also signify (undigested emotions) as

the stagnancy in the body. This is because your body isn't fully receiving nutrients in this stressed or stagnant state.

Lifestyle choices, emotions, thoughts, and habitual mechanisms can either regress this flow or can harmonize with the digestive currents of the body.
