How to Cure a Stomach Ache, home remedies

  • Eat if you think it might be related to hunger!
  • Try to go to the bathroom. As usual.
  • Your feet must be in a higher level than the rest of your body, put some pillows below your feet and the ache will go away.
  • Eat an herb which aids digestion, such as ginger (ginger-ale with ACTUAL ginger in it, or ginger snaps), peppermint (gum and candy cane as long as it is real peppermint) or Aloe Vera Juice (an anti-parasitic that aids digestion),or Venous(very greater soda for helping cure stomach aches and is from MI). Similar herb teas that help digestion include mint, ginger or chamomile tea.
  • Place a heating pad on your abdomen to give temporary relief.
  • Lie down for a few minutes and relax. Close your eyes. Place a cool moist wash cloth over your forehead. Breath slowly and evenly, trying to keep your mind off of the pain.
  • Sip a glass of iced water slowly.
  • Eat bland foods; crackers, bread, rice, etc. Sometimes stomach aches are caused by too much acid floating around in your stomach with nothing to do. These foods will help absorb the acid to make things a little more comfortable. Also, you may just be hungry!
  • Avoid spicy or fast foods, heavy foods, rich desserts until your stomach balances out.
  • Drinking black coffee tends to aid the digestive process.
  • Try a Tums. Especially the fruit kind.
  • Drink some flat lemonade
  • Try carbonated beverages such as ginger ale, carbonated mineral water (mix with juice to add flavour), or tonic water (with quinine, tastes horrible but works!)
  • Try lying on your stomach to ease the pain.
  • Avoid drinking dairy products
  • Place an ice cube above, on, or below your belly button and lie down
  • Lay on your left side comfortably; it helps move acid flow, while getting rid of gas bubbles that may be causing pain. This also may cause flatulence.
  • Try your best not to think about your stomach; sometimes just forgetting about it will make it go away.
  • If you experience pain after eating a meal – try drinking only before you start eating, drinking liquids makes it harder to digest food.
  • One old trick is to drink sugar salt water. To make this all you have to do is get a glass of water, and put about a teaspoon of salt and sugar in the water. It tastes nasty, but a lot of times it works wonders. If it doesn’t work, it isn’t your normal stomach ache.
  • A white soda pop may help you burp away some of the discomfort especially if it is trapped stomach gases.
  • Try holding a piece of ice – it will take all of the concentration off your stomach.
  • Try pushing on your stomach and if it makes a gurgling noise, it means you probably have gas.
  • Try drinking peppermint tea. It coats your stomach.
  • If you have a mint plant, take a leaf and chew on it… like gum. “Do not swallow it if you have heartburn”.
  • Only lie on you’re stomach with a minor pain not a serious pain. And don’t squirm just lie down and take deep breaths. Lying on your stomach evens out the food so you can go on your way!
  • Try bringing your knees to your chest and just stay in one spot. Once the pain goes away stretch out a little bit.
