Whether you practice a healthy diet or not, you’re bound to experience stomach aches from time to time. They can leave you bed ridden, but you don’t have to go beyond your kitchen to whip up a quick fix. There are plenty of easy at home remedies for stomach aches and cramps that are also natural and good for your health. Try these!
Chamomile or fennel tea helps coat the stomach with antioxidants. This can help soothe an upset tummy and open up the stomach to help relieve pain caused by gas. Warm water also helps to ease stomach cramps.
Or if you don’t have sparkling, you can just use hot water. The carbonated beverage has a similar effect as heat, it helps to open the stomach and airways to relieve gas and therefore relieve pain caused by trapped gas (little do we ever admit that’s what is causing the pain.)
Placing a warm heat pad on the stomach can soothe stomach pain caused by cramping from food poisoning and menstruation. The warmth helps to loosen and relax muscles.
This fruit helps to hold an upset stomach. It coats the lining to soothe irritations and is high in fiber, which the body needs to regulate the digestive system. Bananas are also high in nutrients and healthy sugars that can provide energy when you’re not feeling well.
