Did you know there are many natural ways to ease an upset stomach?

Dealing with an upset stomach can be stressful and they somehow always seem to happen at the most inopportune times!

Check out these 7 natural and simple ways to ease an upset stomach and feel better faster!2

1. Drink Tea

Drinking tea is one of the easiest ways to ease an upset stomach!

Sipping on some ginger, chamomile, licorice or peppermint tea can help soothe and heal a stressed out tummy and halt stomach pain.

Peppermint tea is also noted to help calm nausea and symptoms of PMS, so it’s a really helpful tea to have on hand!

2. Peppermints

I always keep peppermint candies or gum on hand in case I need to freshen my breath or soothe an upset stomach.

Candies like Altoids or any kind of hard candy or gum with peppermint can help calm a stomach ache and aid in digestion.2

According the University of Maryland Medical Center, peppermint relaxes muscles in the stomach so it's a very helpful ingredient.

3. Ginger

Ginger is another useful ingredient when you’re trying to soothe your stomach.

Ginger is well known to help nausea but it also has calming effects on stomach aches as well.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to chew on fresh ginger root!

Sip some ginger ale or tea or chew on some ginger candy or gum to get the soothing effect.

If you choose to drink ginger ale, make sure it’s not super cold.

4. Clear Soup

If you can handle eating something, soothe your stomach with some clear broth-based soup like chicken or vegetable.

Choose something light, clear and easily digestible so you won’t run the risk of further irritating your stomach.

Both chicken and veggie broths are light and nutritious, so they can help relieve nausea and diarrhea.
