Homeopathic First Aid - Stomach ache
This post is part of our Homeopathy Awareness Week series.
Stomach ache is a common symptom, especially if we experience constipation, have over-indulged on rich food or have gastric ‘flu. Babies and small children commonly complain of tummy upsets, especially when teething, travelling in a car or after an upset.
Homeopathic remedies can alleviate the symptoms of these common, simple causes of abdominal pain. However, if symptoms persist seek professional medical advice.
Here is a client’s experience of using Homeopathy for her family:
‘When my daughter started feeling unwell, I originally thought it was a bug. She was nauseas but was only sick once. The next day the nausea passed but she began complaining of stabbing pains in her abdomen which came and went. She had lost her appetite completely and wasn’t getting any better so I took her to her GP. As my daughter had had these symptoms before the GP suspected a grumbling appendix, but concluded that it was bowel spasm and prescribed Buscopan. The minute we left the doctors surgery I remembered you had previously prescribed the Homeopathic remedy Colocynthis. We went straight home, found it and after taking three doses over an hour my daughter was better in no time. She ate a full evening meal and has been pain free since. Oh! And we didn’t need the Buscopan!’
Here are some common abdominal symptoms and Homeopathic remedies that can help:
Better for pressure or bending double, Colocynthis 6c
In teething babies who want to be carried, Chamomilla 6c
Cramps, irritability, Nux vomica 30c
Stomach pain with nausea, especially after rich food, clingy Pulsatilla 6c
Travel sickness, Travella, Bryonia, Cocculus 6c
