Having a pain in your stomach is never pleasant, and it can completely ruin your day. Sometimes we don’t know exactly what is causing the problem, but what we know for sure is that we want it to end as quickly as possible! Here are three remedies to try out. 

If you are suffering from something more specific such as constipation, diarrhea or gastroenteritis, look on our website for specific articles on effective treatment.

1) Bicarbonate of soda for heartburn

Add a spoon of bicarbonate of soda to a glass of water, stir it and drink it down in one go. In a few minutes, the bicarbonate of soda will have eased the pain thanks to its antacid properties.

2) Cumin

Since antiquity, we have used cumin to ease intestinal problems. Cumin cleanses the stomach and eliminates gas. Occasional stomach pains will be no match for it! You simply need to put one teaspoon into a glass of water, mixing it well, and drinking it in one go. The taste is something to get used to, but it works!

3) Strawberries for mild stomach ache

Boil a large handful of strawberries in water. Drink one glass of this every hour until you are feeling better.
