So you had a fabulous dinner with a bunch of close friends last night, the wine flowed as freely as the conversation and you overindulged in a buffet of rich dishes?
Now it's the next morning, and you're full of wind, you feel nauseous and you have heartburn – a fair price to pay for an evening of decadence.
Try these natural ways to ease your stomach:
Make yourself a cup of herbal tea: catnip, ginger, fennel, chamomile and peppermint teas are the most popular. Add a sprinkle of crushed fengugreek seeds and some fresh parsley.
- Nux vomica gets rid of that sour taste in your mouth, stops nausea, helps you burp out all the gas, and curbs pain and that bloated feeling in your gut.
- Arsenicum album combats nausea and vomiting, excessive thirst and heartburn. Really good for the wee morning hours when your head is down the toilet.
- Ipecacuanha works well for nausea caused by indigestible food, an overly moist mouth and excessive saliva production. Great for when your face is as white as a ghost and you're twitching and hiccuping uncontrollably. It also helps for a bloated stomach.
