The attraction of natural remedies has become a recent health craze. An oversensitive stomach from time to time is usually no cause for concern, and is often possible to treat without a physician’s assistance. Here’s what you can do to help a queasy stomach at home.

Drinking water
The human body needs water to digest and absorb nutrients successfully from food and liquids, according to the website Medical News Today. When one is dehydrated, the process of digestion becomes more difficult and less effective within the body. A division of a nonprofit institute The Health and Medical Division (HMD) recommends the following measurements of water intake to avoid an upset stomach:

Women should drink around 2.7 liters or 91 ounces of water a day
Men should drink about 3.7 or 125 ounces of water a day
20% of water intake would come from food, while the rest come from beverages.

Avoid lying down
When your body is in a horizontal position, it causes the acid in the stomach to travel backwards, leading to heartburn. People with an upset stomach should avoid lying down or going to bed until a few hours pass, which may lead to some relief. If you need to lie down, use a pillow to prop up your head, neck, and upper chest at a 30-degree angle.

Ginger
Ginger is one of the most common natural remedies for an upset stomach and indigestion. The chemicals found in ginger, gingerols and shogaols, aid in the processing speed of stomach contractions. This can move food that may be causing ingestion, quickly through the stomach. You can add ginger to your food or drink it as a tea.

Mint
Menthol, which is found in mint, can help with alleviating uneasiness in the stomach, as well as reducing muscle spasms in the intestines. A 2013 research study reveals that mint is a traditional treatment for indigestion, gas, and diarrhea in Iran, Pakistan, and India. Traditionally, people boil mint leaves with cardamom to make tea. Alternatively, one can powder or juice mint leaves and mix them with other teas as well.

Cinnamon
Cinnamon contains antioxidants that can help ease digestion and reduce any irritation in the digestion tract. Other substances within cinnamon may help to reduce gas and bloating. Also, it helps to neutralise stomach acidity to reduce heartburn and indigestion.
