Abdominal Pain


Abdominal Pain: Stomach or abdominal pain may be the result of many conditions such as gallbladder disease, appendicitis, kidney problems or conditions related to other digestive organs. Inflamed organs can also lead to stomach pain. The cause of your stomach pain will determine the type of necessary treatment, but herbs with antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties may help improve or reduce stomach pain.

Severe abdominal pain is a greater cause for concern. If it starts suddenly and unexpectedly, it should be regarded as a medical emergency, especially if the pain is concentrated in a particular area. Call your doctor as soon as possible or go to your nearest hospital accident and emergency (A&E) department if this is the case. 

Supplements: The use of nutritional supplements for stomach pain depends on the cause of the abdominal discomfort. 

Speak with your doctor before using herbs to treat abdominal Pain. If you are currently taking any prescription medications or over-the-counter medications, it is recommended that you speak with your doctor before using any herbal remedy. If you experience any type of allergic reaction when using herbs, stop using them immediately and call your doctor.
