Stomach Ache

Remedy (Nuskhe)

  • Grind ½ cup mint (pudina) with 1" piece of chopped ginger (adrak) and juice of ½ lemon in a mixer.  Squeeze through a muslin cloth or strain through a fine strainer to get juice.  Add ¼ teaspoon black salt (kala namak), and take it on an empty stomach.
    When one suffers from gas in the stomach, put a drop of castor oil on the navel, and then press a good pinch of tobacco snuff or asafetida (hing).
  • Drink ½ cup warm water with 1 teaspoon ghee and 1 teaspoon sugar for relief from cramps in the stomach.
  • A pinch of asafetida (hing) taken along with 1 teaspoon of homemade ghee is an excellent remedy for stomach ache.
  • Guava (amrood) is excellent for indigestion and flatulence (gas).  People prone to stomach disorders should eat 250 grams (about 2 small) guavas a day.
  • Mix 1 teaspoon ajwain with ¼ teaspoon black salt.  Chew and eat alone or with warm water if needed.
  • Boil 2 tablespoon fennel seeds (saunf) in 1 cup water till it is reduced to half.  Filter.  Take 1 tablespoon every morning and evening for a few days.
  • Mix 1 teaspoon mint (pudina) juice, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, juice of ¼" piece ginger (adrak) and a pinch of black salt (kala namak) and drink it.
  • Mix a little asafetida (hing) with water to make a paste.  Apply on and around the navel.
  • Drink 1-2 teaspoons brandy with a little warm water.  Gives immediate relief from gas.
  • Mix carom seeds (ajwain) with lemon juice and dry in the sun.  Bottle it and have a teaspoon whenever you feel that something is wrong with your stomach (very good for stomach – digestion, gas, indigestion, etc.)
  • And then there is the age old method of using a hot water bottle and lying down on your stomach to get relief.
