Nothing replaces a visit with a health care professional when you have a medical problem, but there are some issues that can be tamed with a simple visit to your pantry or fridge. Here’s some suggestions on how you can squelch some troublesome topics without going any further than your own kitchen, according to everydayhealth.com.
Ginger, anise, or peppermint tea. High-fiber, cruciferous veggies like cauliflower, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts may be kind to most of your body but may create painful rumbling in your gastrointestinal tract. To combat these unwelcome side effects, sip ginger or peppermint tea or make your own tea from anise seeds to help cut gas.
Papaya. If tea doesn’t help your upset stomach, try eating papaya for dessert. The enzyme, papain, has been show to beat bloat, gas, and gastrointestinal unrest by helping aid digestion and preventing constipation.
