Stomach Pain…no Thank You!

Three days ago, the familiar pain hit me as I was waking up in the morning. The burn intensified, but I kept moving in spite of the bloating and pain. Stomach pain cannot be a barrier to life. It simply cannot happen.

Hope is not lost. Everyone has stomach pain, more so than not. How? Really, how can this pain be reduced to a distant memory? In the new Millennium, especially, our society is programmed by our pharmaceuticals and tempered by our apothecaries when it comes to finding a remedy for something like stomach or gastrointestinal pain.

I know what works for me, but I am also not lactose-intolerant or allergic to any foods. Many doctors have educated suggestions for stomach issues that don’t require drugs. You can get all the drugs you want from the doctor to offset the pain, but that’s as temporary as the constant handfuls of over-the-counter drugs most people take to keep their machine going through their work day until they get home and crumble into a debilitated fetus on the sofa writhing in searing pain.

What is going to stop the pain? What is the answer?

Think about your diet and stress level. If you are pummeling your guts with fast food and processed foods at your fast-paced inside sales job, you’re going to have a problem when you try to relax. That’s the Law of Averages Chum!

I know that, having worked in many high stress jobs over 25 years surrounded by only foods whose chemical makeup is designed to tear through my skin from the inside out at some point, it was imperative that I grab my pain by the stones and get some control so that I won’t be holding the World’s Record for the most simultaneous ulcers accumulated into one human stomach.

For me, the answer was to take all of the stress that could potentially build up in one day and organize it into a reverse pyramid where I had to tackle the biggest part first and reduce the stress as each level got smaller. Finally, drinking water and bringing only small handfuls of food to work to counter the stress-eating alleviated the stomach issues.

The methods to relieve stomach pain vary, but low stress and sound dietary decisions are a good place to start. You don’t need a doctor or a prescription for that. Smart decisions solve pain.
