Do you often reach for the Peptobismol? or crunch down two horribly tasting Tums after a meal? Well STOP!!! There is a reason your body is reacting the way that it is, when your stomach is hurting it means that there is something that is wrong. Choking down an antacid isn't making the problem better, its not solving the reason why your stomach is hurting in the first place.... its simply masking the pain and tricking your body into thinking its ok while really those medications are hurting your insides and making problems worse. There are a few things that you can do that will support your body and your digestion to prevent the searing pain of acid reflux and upset stomachs.
1. Don't drink cold liquids before, during or directly after eating. This is because cold fluids extinguish the digestive juices that your body naturally produces creating a very poor environment for digestion.
2. If you are having pains in you stomach or acid reflux, look at what you ate. Take note of the items that were on your plate and remember them. Next time the pain returns look over what you ate again and compare, you could have a sensitivity that your body is trying to make you aware of.
3. if your stomach is really bad drink Ginger tea, peppermint tea or a tablespoon of raw honey will naturally help everything to settle providing you with relief.
