Eat yogurt, which is full of natural healthy bacteria that can help soothe a stomach ache. Often a stomach ache is caused due to lack of bacteria that helps to break down food, meaning the stomach acids that help break down food are working over-time causing pain, cramping and acid reflux.
Peel a small piece of ginger and slowly chew the root, swallowing the medicinal juices. Ginger has been used in natural medicine to treat stomach aches, nausea and to aid in digestion for centuries and can quickly relieve the pain naturally.
Squeeze the juice from one whole fresh lemon into a cup of hot water and drink. The hot water helps to flush the stomach while the lemon helps break down food, easing the work of stomach acids and relieving a painful stomach ache naturally and efficiently.
Add five or six drops of lavender essential oil to a few cups of rice, stirring until well combined. Place the rice in an old tube sock and tie the end. Place the rice-filled sock in the microwave just until hot and place the sock over the painful area of your stomach. This natural treatment will quickly relieve cramping, and works well for menstrual symptoms as well.
