Home Remedies For Stomach Pain — The Methods And Remedies That Actually Work

If you’re experiencing abdominal cramps, rice water is a great home remedy. In addition to being great for your dinner side dish, rice has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. To make rice water, boil half a cup of white rice with two glasses of water. Remove the pot from the stove when the rice has softened, then let it cool for two to three minutes. Once it has cooled, you can drink the rice water.


Amritdhara is an effective home remedy for stomach pain for indigestion and digestive problems. It is an herb that can be taken in the form of a paste with a little sugar and water. It is also useful for a variety of other ailments, including diarrhea, loose motion, and cholera. You can also make a paste by grinding a few leaves of guava trees and adding them to a small amount of water.

Chamomile tea

The bitter compounds found in chamomile tea help your digestive system absorb more nutrients from food. This in turn encourages the release of digestive enzymes, which break down food in your digestive tract. It also contains carminative properties, which help break down gas in your digestive tract, which helps reduce bloating. In addition, drinking chamomile tea can help you sleep, which is essential for digestive distress.


In addition to its numerous health benefits, peppermint is an effective home remedy for stomach aches.

Peppermint has been used for centuries to relieve gastrointestinal aches. The oil of peppermint contains an antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and immunomodulating properties that can help relieve the symptoms of gas and bloating.

Aloe vera

A recent study found that taking aloe vera juice may ease symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Irritable bowel syndrome is an inflammatory disease of the digestive tract that causes abdominal pain and changes in bowel habits. The condition can be disabling, affecting over a quarter of all U.S. adults. In addition to reducing symptoms, aloe vera juice is also a rich source of antioxidants, which may help prevent chronic diseases.


If you’re looking for a home remedy for stomach pain, ginger is one of the best options. Ginger can help relieve nausea and stomach aches by increasing gastric motility and by soothing a painful chest condition. Ginger may also protect the gastric lining from damage by stomach acid flowing up the esophagus after a meal. However, be careful not to overtax your stomach by drinking too much ginger tea at once.

Baking soda

A home remedy for a sour stomach may seem like an unusual choice. But baking soda, which is a base that dissolves in liquids, can help. Mix it with water or apple cider vinegar to relieve discomfort and bloating caused by a sour stomach. This natural treatment will help reduce the acid in your stomach, as well as flush toxins from your digestive tract. Use the recommended dosage according to your age and schedule, and make sure you leave a few hours between applications.

Caraway seeds

Traditionally, caraway has been used as a digestive herb for a variety of digestive problems. Its warming aroma has soothing properties for stomach pain, and it is a known anti-flatulent and anti-colitic agent. Some cultures chew on the seeds after dinner to promote good digestive health.
