Cramps: stomach ache Remedies
herbs are used prominently
in these herbal remedies to treat the cramping symptoms. They are then combined
with other herbs that target related symptoms to calm nerves, reduce nausea, and ease stomach pain. Aromatherapy oils can also be used in abdominal
massages to ease cramping and stomach pain. Massage neroli blended with a carrier oil into the lower abdomen to relieve menstrual cramps.
Leg cramps, or charley horses, have very different causes and treatments. The
most common causes are dehydration, and lack of salt or minerals, poor circulation,
and over worked muscles. Walking or stretching often works, as does massage with
oils that improve circulation. Some people swear by ice packs. My personal favorite
home remedy for cramps is to raid the refrigerator for a big, juicy dill pickle.
Opinions vary widely on why, how or if these things work, since most foot and
leg cramps will dissipate on their own after a few minutes.
