Many people have various stomach ailments. Some of these ailments include hyperacidity, food poisoning, heartburn, overeating and stomach flu. These stomach ailments can happen for several reasons.
Hyperacidity is the condition that is caused by too much acid in the stomach. This can be caused by too much alcohol consumption, overeating, and generally unhealthy meal. Various types of acidity foods may also cause hyperacidity. These type of foods include tomatoes, oranges, lemons, hot peppers and grape fruit. Eat these foods in moderation if they upset your stomach. The homeopathic remedy to take for hyperacidity is Natrum_Phosphoricum 6X. Take every 10 to 15 minutes until the condition subsides.
Food Poisoning is caused by eating something that does not agree with your stomach. Harmful bacteria or viruses may have been eaten. You may also feel dehydrated, accompanied by diarrhea and vomiting. Eating tainted food or drinking water may cause food poisoning. Throw out all food products that have been in the fridge to long or have passed their expiration date. Please be extra cautious in third world countries where water quality standards are not that high. Buy named brand bottle water such as Aquafina or Evian. Drinking too much alcohol may also cause these conditions. The remedy to take would be Arsenicum Album 6C every hour up to 10 hours. Make sure to drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated. In the case of severe food poisoning, please go to the nearest emergency room.
Heartburn generally happens 30 minutes after eating. This condition is typically caused by alcohol, fatty foods or spicy foods. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs include aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, Nuprin) and naproxen (Aleve) may also lead to heartburn. Take Nux Vomica 6C every 10-15 minutes until the condition subsides. Chronic Heartburn may lead to Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. If your condition becomes chronic, please see a physician.
Over eating generally happens in the evening approximately 2 hours after eating. This may be accompanied by nausea or vomiting. This indigestion is typically caused by eating rich or fatty foods. Drink plenty of water and eat fiber such as brown rice and whole wheat bread to prevent overeating. Fiber and water help fill up the stomach so there will be less of a tendency to eat too much. Take Pulsatilla 6C every 10-15 minutes until the condition subsides.
Stomach Flu with severe cramps are caused by viral stomach infection with possible diarrhea. The stomach flu can be passed through the air. Many infants pass the stomach flu on to their parents. The good news is that most stomach flus typically go away in a few days. Take Colocynthis 6C every hour up to 10 doses. See a physician if your stomach flu does not go away in two to three days.
