Home Remedies for an Upset Stomach

Keep a Food Diary

Regardless of the cause, we can all agree that an upset stomach can be very irritating. But figuring out the cause of that upset stomach is a key step in preventing it. Try keeping a food diary. If you notice that a particular food or drink causes your problems, write it down so that you don’t make the mistake of eating it again. If you're lactose intolerant, you may need to avoid milk and other dairy products. Also, wheat and onions are known to trigger irritable bowel syndrome. Know your body and understand what does and doesn't work for you.
