Soothing Tummy Troubles

May 10, 2010 at 1:29 pm 1 comment

I had a weekend that was focused on eating. Between visiting my best friend in New Hope and indulging in dinner complete with 7 layer carrot cake and 2 Mother’s Day meals yesterday, my stomach was overworked. Delicious meals turned into an unsavory stomach for me.

When I have indigestion or an uncomfortable feeling of being too full I turn to my trusty hot water bottle. Fill that sucker up with duh–hot water–and place it on the belly and let out a sigh of relief. It feels SO good, so comforting. Move positions (laying on your lest side is best) until you become comfortable. I even slept with mine last night. Feels like your getting a big, warm hug from a teddy bear. Well, not really. But close.

I highly recommend picking one up! The one I have (pictured here, from amazon) is great because even if you use super hot water it doesn’t get too hot that it will burn you.

I also give myself a lower-stomach/bowel massage, moving my hands underneath my belly button in a COUNTER-clockwise circular movement. That helps move everything in your intestines in the direction that it leaves your body.

So..hot water bottle couples with a light intestinal massage…delicious relief.

    NOT JUST FOR ADULTS… my little guy (4+ months) LOVED that thing on his belly… better than any of those colic medications (and who wants to give their newborn medication anyway)… a real life-saver…
