11 Ways To Cure Your Upset Stomach

Hey viewer! I’ve been dealing with a killer stomach
ache today. How often does your stomach act up? It’s been happening more and more with me
lately, and I’m going crazy! There are a number of underlying reasons for
stomach aches. These include things like ulcers, indigestion,
appendicitis and irritable bowel syndrome. Although much of the time, you’re just not
feeling that great. Whatever the cause maybe, there are many remedies. Let’s talk about 11 Ways To Cure Your Upset
Stomach. How often do you eat ginger? Can it be as simple as drinking a glass of
water? Wait, what exactly is the “BRAT” diet? We’re talking all of that AND more… Cut the Cigarettes To put it simply, don’t smoke. Cigarettes bring a whole treasure chest of
health problems. But if you’d like to save yourself an annoying
stomach ache, you may want to have a second look at that smoke pack in your pocket. The nicotine found in cigarettes can irritate
the lining in your stomach, reducing the production of nitric oxide. This is the chemical that helps you maintain
a proper blood flow, as well as the production of mucus and bicarbonate. If the production of nitric oxide slows down,
you are vulnerable to stomach pains. Two words: STOP SMOKING! Cut the Booze I know, it’s a bit of a drag to hear that
some of your favourite things can be the cause of your stomach pain. Drinking alcohol has the ability to irritate
your digestive system and damage the lining of your stomach. When you drink a beer, your stomach will begin
to produce more acid than it usually does. This can cause it to ache. Acid reflux is another product of booze. This is when your stomach acid burns your
throat. It can be highly uncomfortable. And if that’s not enough, drinking can also
cause you to produce an ulcer. Instead of a beer, grab a glass of juice,
or perhaps a soda. Or maybe… Drink More Water When it comes to easing your stomach pains,
this is among the most basic pointers. The lack of water in your system can slow
down the digestive process. It is suggested that you drink around 1 and
a half to 2 litres of water in a single day. This way, you can easily avoid water retention,
which is what happens when your body holds on to as much water as possible. This is to avoid dehydration. So if you feel your stomach beginning to bloat,
grab a glass of H2O. Down the hatch! Maybe Try Cinnamon? This is one you may not have been expecting
to pop up. Well, like all great Besties, we’re full
of surprises. Cinnamon is a spice that carries an important
antioxidant known as polyphenol. This micronutrient assists people when they
are having digestive issues. Keep in mind, you don’t need to eat cinnamon
raw. It can prove useful when added to a smoothie,
yogurt, applesauce or a healthy meal. When used properly, the antioxidants work
to ease your food digestion and reduce irritation in the stomach. This helps in the fight against indigestion,
gas, heartburn and nausea. So there’s no need to get brave and do the
“cinnamon challenge”. Besides, you’d be almost a decade too late
with that fad. Apply a Heating Pad When you’re in pain, there is sometimes
no better feeling than to sit back and relax with a reliable heating source. A heated object placed against your body helps
relax the muscles and distract your brain from the pain. This is very similar to how pain killing medications
work. The object is recommended to be heated to
a temperature of 104 degrees Farhenheit, which is equal to 40 degrees Celsius. This triggers your body’s heat receptors,
blocking the feeling of pain from reaching the brain. So reach into the cupboard and pull out that
old heating pad. There’s a reason you kept it stored away
rather than tossing it in the trash. While we’re on the subject of your stomach,

shape, have a look at our recent video for 7 Ways To Lose Saddle Bag Fat. Now back to our list of 11 Ways To Cure Your
Stomach Pains Warm Baths And you thought a heating pad was soothing. Given our hectic schedules, most of us don’t
have the luxury to draw a warm bath and relax. But if you have the time, I strongly suggest
you try it out. Especially if you’ve been feeling aches
and pains in your core area. You know how freezing cold baths can help
athletes with injuries? Well a warm bath can do the same for internal
pain. The most important element in all of this
is muscle relaxation. When there is less tension in the body, the
discomfort in your stomach will be relieved quicker. Get a Little Basil In Your Life If you’re familiar with the world of cooking,
you would know that basil is an easy ingredient to improve the quality of a meal. Much like taste buds, our stomachs could use
a little flavour as well. Basil’s components can help relieve pain
and inflammation in the stomach. One of these key properties in reducing inflammation
is known as linoleic acid. Eugenol, another compound found in basil,
helps to reduce the amount of stomach acid. If you sprinkle basil into salad or tea, it
may give your stomach the resources it needs to kick the aches. So head out to your nearest supermarket and
grab some fresh basil. Licorice I bet you never thought you’d find the words
“basil” and “licorice” on the same list. Well not to bum you out or anything, but I
don’t mean the candy. I’m talking about the root found inside
licorice that helps fight against your upset stomach. You see, licorice contains extracts that can
reduce pain in your gut. These extracts have also proven useful in
the fight against ulcers, nausea and heartburn. Now not to discourage you from trying this
remedy, but the potency of the licorice root is exactly what gives black licorice its signature
taste. Enjoy! Have a Banana Similar to water, bananas are another fairly
basic antidote for an upset stomach. The nutrients located in bananas are known
to relieve pains in your abdominals. Contents such as Vitamin B6 and potassium
work great when someone is experiencing severe pain. They are also fairly easy to digest, making
it a go-to food for when you’re feeling sick. Have you ever heard of anyone having a difficult
time eating a banana? Perhaps the most important component of bananas
is pectin, a polysaccharide found in fruits. If you are feeling constipated, the pectin
from a banana can help with bowel movements. Sorry, I didn’t mean to get graphic there. Back to your regularly scheduled programming. Vinegar We really had you excited with all the talk
of bananas, baths and heating pads, didn’t we? Well not all good things last forever. Vinegar’s use as a stomach ache combatant
dates back to ancient times. Early records from the Middle East, Greece
and China have described people using vinegar as a cure for all types of medical problems. While we’ve no doubt advanced our methods
of treating colds and dress wounds, vinegar continues to be used as a digestive aid to
this day. Apple cider vinegar in particular can work
as an efficient remedy against digestive issues. One of these issues is bloating. Apple cider will also increase your body’s
level of stomach acid. While too much acid makes for one heck of
an unpleasant stomach ache, the lack of acid can have the same effect. Just mix yourself a cup of warm water with
a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. If you’d care to improve the taste, a tablespoon
of honey is also suggested. After its consumption, your stomach pains
will begin to fade away. If the ancient Greeks got through it, so can
you. The BRAT Diet This one probably caught your interest back
in the intro. Let’s get it out of the way, the name is
not implying that your stomach ache makes you brat. Remember how we mentioned bananas a moment
ago? Well add a few more ingredients and you’ve
got yourself a heck of a reliable stomach treatment. The term ‘BRAT’ is an acronym for Bananas,
Rice, Applesauce and Toast! It is specifically recommended as a remedy
for vomiting or diarrhea. This is due to your stomach’s sensitivity
to solid foods during this period. While it is mostly made up of low-fiber, bland
foods, the BRAT diet helps replace several key nutrients you may have lost due to sickness. This includes potassium, calcium, iron and
protein. Unless you have a specific sensitivity to
one of these key foods, your stomach should be feeling less irritated over the course
of its consumption. So if you happen to be feeling the extreme
effects of an upset stomach, go ahead and mix together some BRAT! Have you been experiencing bad stomach pains? Are you considering trying any of these methods? Sound off in the comment section.
