|How to cure stomach pain|
Home Remedies for Stomach Aches & Cramps
1 - Enjoy a Cup of Chamomile Tea
Chamomile can help ease the pain of a stomach ache by working as an anti-inflammatory (for example the lining of the stomach can become inflamed as a result common gastritis, caused by bacteria) and by relaxing the smooth muscle of the upper digestive track. When it relaxes that muscle, the contractions that are pushing food through your system ease up a bit and lessen the pain of cramping and spasms.
You will need…
-1 teabag of chamomile tea OR 1-2 teaspoons of dried chamomile
Pour boiling water over a teabag and cover your mug, letting it steep for 10 minutes. If using dried chamomile, place 1-2 teaspoons in a mug and cover with boiling water. Cover the mug and let steep for 15-20 minutes. Sip slowly.
2 - Apple cider vinegar
If you can stomach it, try taking this acidic pantry staple by the tablespoon to neutralize an upset stomach. Too strong? Mix a tablespoon with a cup of water and a teaspoon of honey, and sip it slowly.
The acids in apple cider vinegar may help decrease starch digestion, allowing the starch to get to the intestines and keep the bacteria in the gut healthy. Some people take a spoonful each day as a preventive measure.
3 - Drink clear liquids.
With nausea often comes vomiting, and vomiting can cause dehydration. If your body is dehydrated, it will take longer to heal and you will feel the effects of nausea stronger than usual. Drink 2-4 ounces of water every 15 minutes while you are awake to try to keep hydrated.
Try electrolyte-supplemented sports drinks. These replenish the sodium and potassium in your body which it needs in order to fight illness.
Drink peppermint, chamomile, or ginger tea with honey. These three herbs have shown to have a positive effect in reducing the feeling of nausea.
4 - Use a “Hot” Pack
I put hot in quotations because you don’t truly want it hot-just very warm, but comfortably so. You can also use a hot water bottle for this as well. Heat helps to loosen and relax muscles, so if you find yourself cramping up, some warmth can go a long ways for relieving you of the dreadful discomfort.
You will need…
-A hot pack, hot water bottle, or something similar
-A cozy place to lie down
Find a place to lie down, and rest the hot pack on your belly. It should be a comfortable temperature, but definitely warm. Do this for at least 15 minutes, or as long as you need to, reheating as necessary.
5 - Eat bland food.
Your body needs nutrients to keep its energy up as it tries to recover from the ache, so provide it with easy-to-digest foods. Choose foods that aren’t spicy, greasy, or sugar-filled. Some food that meet these standards are,oatmeal, broths, toast, crackers, and rice. Be sure to try an avoid dairy based food as these contain natural bacteria which your stomach might not agree with.
6 - Rice Water
Rice water is exactly what it sounds like-the water left-over after you cook rice. It acts a demulcent, meaning a substance that relieves inflammation by forming a sort of soothing barrier over a membrane, in this case, the lining of your stomach.
You will need…
-1/2 cup of white rice
-2 cups of water
Cook your rice with twice the amount of water you normally would for your chosen amount. In this case I am using plain old long-grain white rice. Put your rice in a pot on the stove and add the water, cooking over medium-low heat. As the rice starts to become tender, remove it from the heat and let it soak for 3 minutes with the lid on the pan. Drain and drink the water warm, adding a smidge of honey if needed. Save the rice for a bland meal later.
7 - Take baking soda.
Although this is the primary ingredient in most antacids, you can take baking soda plain by dissolving a tablespoon of it into a glass of warm water. Drink the water slowly, and repeat the process every few hours until your nausea goes away
8 - Warm Lemon Water
Lemon water, if your issue is indigestion, helps a stomachache. The high acidity level stimulates the production of hydrochloric acid, which breaks down our food. By upping the amount of HCL being produced, you help move digestion along at healthy pace. You get the added bonus of the hydration too, which keeps the system flushed and running smoothly.
You will need…
-1 fresh lemon
9 -Drink mint tea.
Mint tea is proven to be effective in relieving nausea. What you need to do is steep the dry leaves of mint, about a tablespoon full, in half liter of boiling water for as long as half an hour. Strain it for a while and then drink . While you drink the mint tea, eat the mint leaves along with it. This is because simply sucking on or eating mint leaves which are boiled also help relief the nausea.
It is important to know about abdominal pain
Abdominal pain, also known as stomach pain, is a common symptom associated with both temporary, non-serious disorders and more serious conditions.
Common causes of pain in the abdomen include gastroenteritis and irritable bowel syndrome. In a third of cases the exact cause is unclear. About 10% of people have a more serious underlying condition such as appendicitis, leaking or ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm, diverticulitis, or ectopic pregnancy. Determining the cause can be difficult, because many diseases can cause this symptom.
The most frequent reason for abdominal pain are gastroenteritis (13 %) , irritable bowel syndrome (8 %) , urinary tract problems (5 %) , inflammation of the stomach (5 %) and constipation (5 %) . In about 30% of cases, the cause is not determined. About 10% of cases have a more serious cause including gallbladder (stones or biliary dyskinesia) or pancreas problems (4 %) , diverticulitis (3 %) , appendicitis (2 %) and cancer (1 %) . More common in those who are older, mesenteric ischemia and abdominal aortic aneurysms are other serious causes.
