Do high fat drinks and foods make you nauseous or give you a stomach ache? It use to for me; instantly. I cured it with Swedish bitters which stimulates the production of bile to help you break down fats. Any bitter herbs are said to be able to do this.
You may also be low in stomach acid. That can be tested by using the beet test. Do beets make your pee red or pink? If so, you have low stomach acid. I increased mine with beet kvass, but you could also try raw apple cider vinegar, kombucha and other fermented foods.
