4 ways to relieve stomach pain
The occasional stomach pain may be caused by indigestion. But how about the chronic stomach pains? From Chinese medicine perspective, asthenic weak stomach and spleen and stomach yin deficiency are two common causes of chronic stomach pain. People with asthenic and weak stomachs have nagging stomach pain, often accompanied by fatigue, aversion to cold, additional painwhen hungry, stomach pain and diarrhea after eating cold/raw food. They should warm the stomach by having cinnamon tea with apple to strengthen the stomach and dispel cold. Those with stomach yin deficiency also have nagging stomach pain, often accompanied by dry mouth and throat, hot palms and feet, dry stool or even constipation. They should nourish the stomach and yin by having dendrobium tea with radix ophiopogonis to relieve dryness.
In terms of diet, patients with chronic stomach pain have four points to note: First, have regular meals, try not to eat too quickly, and eat until you’re 70% full. 2. Eat a light diet and avoid eating irritating foods that are too greasy and spicy, and stay away from cold/raw foods and drinks. Third, those with stomach yin deficiency should avoid staying up late to decrease the consumption of yin. 4. Drink a cup of rice water made from white rice, red rice and coix seed daily to strengthen the spleen and stomach.
