Abdominal, gut, or intestinal pain, which-ever way you want to call it, can be caused by a plethora of medical conditions whose severity ranges from mild ones up to colon cancer. Most of the time, we suffer from common abdominal pain like Diarrhea and constipation mainly due to what we eat and drink. When this happens, we try to self medicate by buying over the counter drugs that promote natural motility of our digestive system.
But there is more to it that just relieving pain. Over the counter drugs that give relief to abdominal pain may have chemical reactions to our bodies, leading to allergies and other side effects. Which of them specifically, we might never know not unless we suffer from it personally.
But are you really willing to find out which one and learn the hard way? I don’t think so.
More and more people have now steered towards using natural and home remedies to alleviate minor abdominal and intestinal pain. Aside from the fact that these alternatives are fairly easy to find since most of them are already in the household, they also offer no side effects since they are all natural and not synthetically made.
Here are some of the most common natural remedies to help ease gut pain:
- Betel leaves with rock salt – chew this combination for instant and immediate relief of gut pain.
- Mixture of carom seeds, pinch of black salt and few drops of lemon on lukewarm water
- 1 teaspoon of Medicinal charcoal in 1 cup of water
- Ginger tea for abdominal pain with nausea and vomiting
- Blackberry tea for pain with Diarrhea
- Eating banana could significantly help ease Diarrhea
- Soda water is the best home solution for excess acidity of the stomach
While these home remedies are proven to work on most minor cases of intestinal pain, there are also some activities that could help ease the pain away.
Some Activities To Help Ease Intestinal Pain...
Relaxing and listening to music or reading a book while curling up can ease both the tension and stress of an upset stomach. Avoid food and drinks that are known to cause to bloat the stomach with gas like cauliflower, fried foods, chocolates and milk. Covering your belly button while lying down can release some gas, giving you some relief from abdominal pain due to gas, even warm bath can sooth the stomach muscles and can give instant relief.
These intestinal pain home remedies however should not be made as a replacement to medical consultation and medicines in general, they work best alongside medications being given by the doctor and should never be considered as treatment by themselves. Professional help is very much needed in order to diagnose what the actual cause of the problem is so a visit to the doctor will always be the best option if the symptoms persist.
