    Share

    In situation like this many people can just go over the counter to get medicine. Medicines can be expensive now a day. There are many natural remedies to cure and prevent you from encountering Stomach aches.

    Below is an excerpt of an article that shares natural remedies for your stomach ache.

     Ginger

    One of the oldest and most popular methods for reducing indigestion and soothing an upset stomach is ginger root. In fact, it’s so effective at treating digestive problems that you can buy it in supplement form in most grocery stores or pharmacies. Of course, you can also use ginger root or ginger spice to help with an upset stomach — just add it to a little hot water and sip it slowly. If you’re really desperate for some ginger, a can of ginger ale should also help.

    So, why is ginger so effective in helping reduce digestive issues? It’s because ginger root contains chemicals known as gingerols and shogaols, which have been shown to effectively relax the muscles lining the human digestive system.

    Heat Pad

    When you pull a muscle, whether it’s in your neck, back, legs, or just about anywhere else on the body, it’s a good idea to apply heat using a heating pad. That’s because heat can help relax swollen muscles and alleviate pain and discomfort.

    But there’s also value in applying a heating pad to the abdomen in the event that you start to experience an upset stomach or serious indigestion. That’s because the warmth of the heating pad can help to loosen muscles in this part of the body, helping you overcome the discomfort and get back to normal. Heating pads are available in a number of formats, from those you fill with hot water to those you warm in the microwave, to those that are unwrapped and used a limited number of times. Just lay down, apply the heat, and try to let the pad do its work.

    Peppermint

    Ever wonder why so many restaurants present customers with a handful of peppermint candies after a meal? It’s because peppermint has been shown to help digestive muscles relax, reducing the chance that someone who recently dined will suffer from an upset stomach and indigestion.

    But peppermint candies are mostly sugar, so they’re not exactly ideal for treating more serious digestive discomfort. When feeling a little under the weather at home, reach instead for peppermint tea, which can help improve the flow of bile and limit gas and bloating. Simply pour hot water over a peppermint tea bag or, ideally, fresh peppermint leaves.

    Hot Water with Lemon

    One of the simplest methods for reducing indigestion and upset stomach is a little hot water with lemon. That’s because the acidity of the lemon can encourage the production of hydrochloric acid, which assists in the digestive process and prevents foods — particularly foods shown to cause indigestion — from causing discomfort. At the same time, the combination of water and lemon can help hydrate the body, which is always a good thing.

    For best results, use freshly squeezed lemon juice in hot water. If that’s not available, bottled lemon juice should work just fine.

    Carrot Juice

    You might not have carrot juice on hand in the fridge since it’s a bit of a peculiar drink, but if possible, it’s a great go-to for a quick and easy stomach ache remedy. In fact, carrot juice is a popular beverage for anyone who’s battling more than just a tummy ache, like the winter flu as well. Similar to peppermint, carrot juice not only soothes the stomach, but it’s also really healthy! It’s a great source of nourishment.

    To make carrot juice at home, slice up four carrots and boil them in four cups of water. Add one teaspoon of dried peppermint, a peppermint tea bag will also suffice. Once the water comes to a boil, turn the heat down to medium-low and cook for another 15 minutes. Voila! It’s done once the carrots are soft! If you used a tea bag, remove it and give it a stir.
