Herbal Remedies for Abdominal Pain
Abdominal pain is a symptom that accompanies a number of self-resolving conditions, as diverse as stomach ulcers or gas, as well as more serious ones, such as apendicitis. If the abdominal pain becomes severe or persists, consult a qualified health care practitioner.
Ease abdominal pain with peppermint or fennel if due to gas; gentian for overeating, and ginger due to lack of digestive power, especially when accompanied by a feeling of coldness or with nausea. Eat lightly and eat only easily digested foods, such as white rice.
