If you have an upset stomach, whether it’s because of something you ate, stress, nerves, illness, or a combination of the above, finding the right remedy can be an urgent need. But before you reach for the Pepto-Bismol, there are several different types of teas that can help soothe your stomach woes.
Ginger, which has been used as a medicine for thousands of years, can help relieve upset stomach, indigestion, motion sickness, and nausea. Peppermint tea helps settle the stomach by calming the muscles of the stomach and improving the flow of bile and can relieve other stomach issues such as menstrual cramps and abdominal gas. Licorice tea can help protect your stomach from ulcers that can cause abdominal pain, bloating, and indigestion.
If your symptoms don’t go away after several days, be sure to seek the attention of a doctor, but people have used tea to ease their stomachaches for thousands of years, so good luck finding the tea that works best for you!
