There are quite a few reasons for persistent abdominal concerns and this should always be assessed by your ND.
But is there some general advice that may appease these irritating symptoms while you're waiting to be assessed?
Let me give you the recipe for a simple tea made from something you may already have in your cupboard!
Fennel works great to lessen gas and colicky pains. It also stimulates the appetite and promotes healthy digestion.
Here's how to make a tea:
--Pour 1 cup of boiling water over 1-2tsp of slightly crushed fennel seeds and infuse in a covered container for 10 minutes.
--Add some honey if you like and drink 3 times per day or drink 1 cup half an hour before meals to decrease flatulence.
A few other herbs you could add to your tea that will further work to soothe your digestion include caraway, anise, chamomile, peppermint, or ginger.
