Hi, : Hi, first off — if you have severe abdominal pain you need to see a doctor. If you have hard, dry bowel movements — you might be constipated. If you are having lots of liquid stools- you might have diarrhea. Here are some tips if you just have a garden variety tummy ache. Ginger has been used for centuries to help with nausea and abdominal discomfort. You can drink it in the form of tea or open a can of ginger ale. You can also nibble on crystallized ginger. It is very tasty. Chamomile tea is not only quieting for the mind, but also for the gut. If you seem to have issues with loose bowel movements or vomiting consider avoiding hot or spicy foods. The brat diet consists of bananas, rice, applesauce and toast and is gentle on your stomach. If you are a gal and you have abdominal cramps from your period you could use a heating pad (make sure not to get burned).I hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
