Home Remedies for Stomach Upset and Indigestion

Upset stomach or indigestion is very common nowadays. Everyone suffers from this one or another day. Also, there is nothing more uncomfortable than an upset stomach. This feeling of stomach discomfort increased now may be due to lack of physical activity. Indigestion has many causes including medical conditions, medications, diet, and lifestyle. Stress and anxiety often can make indigestion worse.

Signs of indigestion may be vague but can also include belching, heartburn, bloating, and nausea. Here are home remedies that would help you.

Chamomile tea

A nice cup of chamomile tea can help ease the pain of an upset stomach by acting as an anti-inflammatory. These anti-inflammatory properties help your stomach muscles relax, which can reduce the pain of cramping and spasms.

Peppermint tea

Peppermint is more than a breath freshener. It also has an antispasmodic effect on the body, making it a great choice for relieving stomach problems like nausea and indigestion. Drink a cup of peppermint tea after meals to quickly soothe your stomach or keep a few pieces of peppermint in your pocket and suck on the candy after eating.

Eat Yogurt

If you deal with constant stomach issues like bloating, yogurt can help keep your digestive system in tip-top shape.

Though annoying, bloating is not a huge cause for alarm. Try to stay away from salt, since it makes you retain water, and avoid foods that cause gas such as beans, broccoli, and cauliflower. As long as you've ruled out lactose intolerance, try eating yogurt which can help regulate your digestive system.
