Home remedies for Gastric pain

Description

Ever felt the burning sensation in your stomach that literally makes you crawl till the aching stops? If yes, it may be gastritis that is causing you discomfort. Personally, I have experienced severe cases of gastritis where I faced difficulties to even catch my breath because of the inflammation in my stomach. Stabbing, throbbing, pulsing or burning abdominal pains may be the sign of either minor or serious health conditions. The powerful yet nontoxic properties of many common kitchen products may help to alleviate the pain and other symptoms caused by gas, constipation, irritating foods, indigestion, food allergies or viral infections.

Top 16 Natural remedies for gastric pain

  1. Coconut Water:

Get tender green coconut water and keep sipping it till your pain subsides and you can make it a habit to drink it every day too. But be sure the coconut water is not tangy as that can cause acid reflux. Coconut water is rich in fibre, which is why it helps aid digestion and prevents the re-occurrence of acidity.

  1. Freeze It Out:

Take a glass of ice cold water, put two tablespoons of sugar, stir it really well and gulp it down. Repeat the process if you have to. This remedy is a quick fix and my personal favourite. A glass ice cold water helps to stabilise the body fluids. It is believed that cold water calms down the throat and chest burning. Therefore, drink a full glass of cold water and take a small walk.

  1. Chamomile Tea to Cure Stomach Pain:

Chamomile Tea is known to work as an anti-inflammatory along the digestive tract. If your stomach pain is caused by gastrititsgastritis or indigestion, a cup of chamomile can offer relief. It does this by relaxing muscles along the stomach and the esophagus, easing the contractions that push food along and lessens any cramps or spasms you are experiencing.

  1. Baking Soda And Water:

Baking soda acts as an antacid and brings down the acid levels in the stomach. Take one teaspoon baking soda a glass of water. All you have to do is stir the baking soda in the water until the mixture is not cloudy anymore. Drink this. Drink it as and when required.

  1. Apply heat:

Hot compresses can help soothe stomach pain. The word “hot” is used loosely here, since the desired level of heat will depend on both the level of pain and personal preference. When gas pains strike, place a hot water bottle or heating pad on the stomach. The warmth relaxes the muscles in the gut, helping gas to move through the intestines. Heat can also reduce the sensation of pain.

  1. Quit smoking:

Whether using traditional or electronic cigarettes smoking causes air to enter the digestive tract. Because of the range of health issues linked to smoking, quitting is wise for many reasons.

  1. Take peppermint supplements:

Peppermint oil capsules have long been taken to resolve issues like bloating, constipation, and trapped gas. Some research supports the use of peppermint for these symptoms. Always choose enteric-coated capsules. Uncoated capsules may dissolve too quickly in the digestive tract, which can lead to heartburn.

  1. Drink tea:

Some herbal teas may aid digestion and reduce gas pain fast. The most effective include teas made from anise, chamomile, ginger and peppermint. Anise acts as a mild laxative and should be avoided if diarrhea accompanies gas. However, it can be helpful if constipation is responsible for trapped gas.

  1. Ginger It Up:

Ginger has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce irritation of the inner lining in the stomach. You can chew a thumb of ginger and wash it down with water or boil milk and water in 1:5 ratio with ginger and drink it. Another quick ginger fix is to take a pinch of ginger powder, rock salt and asafetida in a cup of warm water to bring an immediate relief.

  1. Exercise:

Gentle exercises can relax the muscles in the gut, helping to move gas through the digestive system. Walking or doing yoga poses after meals may be especially beneficial.

  1. Papaya:

Shredded raw papaya is really good if you are suffering from inflammation of the stomach. You can add few drops of lemon juice to it as well. Don’t worry about lemon juice being a citric acid, few drops will not be detrimental to your health.

  1. Snack on fennel seeds:

Fennel is an age-old solution for trapped wind. Chewing on a teaspoon of the seeds is a popular natural remedy. However, anyone pregnant or breast-feeding should probably avoid doing so, due to conflicting reports concerning safety. The phrase “volatile oil” is not normally associated with relieving stomach pain, but that’s just what anethole, found in fennel seeds, can do. Anethole will stimulate the production of digestive juices, which, if you have indigestion, can be just the thing to provide natural pain relief for inflammation of the stomach.

  1. Cabbage Juice:

Cabbage is rich in vitamin U, which is known to heal ulcer. A Vitamin you can heal the stomach lining and get rid of gastritis within a few days.All you have to do is cut the cabbage in pieces and juice it with a help of your juicer. Extract a cup of fresh cabbage juice and drink it.

  1. Use activated charcoal:

Activated charcoal is a natural product that can be bought in health food stores or pharmacies without a prescription. Supplement tablets taken before and after meals can prevent trapped gas. It is best to build up the intake of activated charcoal gradually. This will prevent unwanted symptoms, such as constipation and nausea.

15.     Yogurt to Relieve Stomach Pain:

Plain unsweetened yogurt containing probiotics or active cultures, may help with stomach pains as it promotes proper digestion. These work to increase the good bacteria needed to relieve indigestion, bloating, and painful discomfort in the gut. Consuming plain, unsweetened yogurt throughout the day may reduce stomach pain episodes.

  1. Rice Water:

Last but not least, look to rice; more specifically, look to the leftover water after you cook rice.

Rice water is capable of forming a coating over certain membranes like, for instance, the lining of your stomach. This barrier can be a soothing lining to help ease inflammation and offer relief from stomach pain.
