Stomachache, Indigestion and Trapped Wind

Updated: Jul 26, 2019



Stomach ache is a very common problem. Discomfort may be felt anywhere between the chest and groin.


Stomachache has a tendency to turn up in the middle of the night, especially when you have had a late dinner.


I always find peppermint tea soothes me, but if that doesn’t work for you, try this little remedy.

Step 1. Take a pinch of asafoetida

Step 2. Mix it with a spoonful of soda bicarbonate

Step 3. Top with soda water or cold water, pinch your nose and swallow


Natural Remedies for Indigestion

Indigestion is a common cause for stomach pain which results typically from overeating or not properly chewing food (eating too fast). Listed below are great natural remedies for stomach ache caused by indigestion.


Antacids

Antacids can relieve stomach pain after eating, but the ingredients (salts such as magnesium, calcium and aluminum) can be harmful if taken more than occasionally.


Lemons

Lemons are known to provide a safe and fast natural remedy for stomach aches. Lemons or limes are a safe and natural remedy for indigestion. Common sense would make you ask, “if there is too much acid in my stomach, and lemons have acids, why would I want to add more acid to my stomach?” Here’s why. Excess acid in the stomach comes from harmful bacteria. Yes, lemons contain ascorbic acid (a.k.a vitamin C), however, this home remedy helps kill the source of the problem: the harmful bacteria. By contrast, antacids work on the symptoms of the problem: the acids from the harmful bacteria.


Calcium Montmorillonite Clay

Calcium Montmorillonite Clay aka Knwa Minerals is a unique remedy that works much like antacids by neutralizing harmful acids, as well as absorbing toxins in the stomach. It’s one of the easiest natural remedies that are known to offer quick results. Homeopathic doctors recommend using a teaspoon of Kanwa powder and mixing with a 4-6 oz glass of water.


Ginger

Ginger is another natural remedy for an upset stomach. It works on the symptoms by balancing the acidity in your stomach. Another benefit of ginger is faster digestion which will cut down on the time food spends settling in your stomach. This is what makes ginger unique among the other home remedies for upset stomach. You should not consume more than 1 gram of ginger in any given day as this may upset your stomach more.


Natural Remedies for Gas

Even though the word “gas” is not used in polite circles, it is a problem, which is going to affect all those people who do not eat meals at regular times.


You need to eat something-even if it is a little something-to keep yourself fit and healthy. Apart from that, if you find yourself sitting down in one position for a long time after a heavy meal, instead of exercising, there is a chance that you are going to suffer from gas. So, try out this natural remedy for gas.


Crush three cloves and make them into a dry powder. Now, swallow that powder with three drops of honey, twice a day. Even the most stubborn flatulence problem is going to disappear within 10 days.


Also, laying on your back and pressing your knees against your tummy whilst rocking is like a little massage that can help gas.
