Home Remedies for an Upset Stomach

Drink Water

Water is a necessity and the amount of water we need to drink each day depends on our size and our physical activity. Drinking enough water each day helps waste pass through the digestive system. According to an article published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, dehydration is one of the most common reasons for being constipated. Unless one is on a fluid-restricted diet, constipated adults and children should increase their liquid intake. In addition to helping constipation, water lubricates and cushions the joints in your body, which helps to prevent the painful symptoms of arthritis and gout.
