For All The Girls With Stomach Problems, I Finally Found Some Relief

Am I hot because I have stomach issues? Or, do I have stomach issues because I’m hot? It’s truly a question that nags at me constantly. Because regardless of what I’m doing or where I’m going, I’m bound to have a stomach ache. Running for coffee? Gotta make sure there’s a bathroom within 15 feet. Going to a concert? You better believe there’s Pepto in my bag. 

Stomach pain as a woman is also one of the world’s biggest mysteries. Am I cramping because I’m constipated, getting my period, or because I added extra cheese to my Chipotle order yesterday? The world will never know. TG for social media though, because up until people started talking about their tummy aches, I thought I was suffering alone which couldn’t be further from the truth. And because social media is where I go to for any ailment, here are some things girls with tummy aches said would help.

Stay hydrated

Tummy issues can be related to a severe lack of hydration. But, when water and electrolytes aren’t doing the trick, you’ll want to reach for probiotics and gastro-friendly herbs. Hilma’s stomach recovery drink will soothe your stomach from the inside out with coconut water, gojiberry, amla fruit, and more.

For all the nauseous girlies

Some of us get a little more queasy than others. So, what’s a girl to do when she feels like she’s about to yack all over the place!? Drink some of this relief tea, ofc. This blend of ginger and peppermint work together to help fight much-dreaded nausea.

Spill Even More Tea

This shit might as well be a magic potion, because whenever I have a stomach ache (especially after eating) this tea really helps. I also get really bad anxiety when a tummy ache arises and the act of drinking tea helps me stay in the moment.

Bring The Heat

Move over Lululemon belt bag, there’s a new wearable accessory in town and it’s helping girls everywhere with unavoidable cramps. This cordless heating pad is way more convenient than a traditional one—now you can actually leave couch if you need to (emphasis on the word need). Who said stomach aches couldn’t be fun and fashion-forward?

Spice Up Your Life

Don’t sleep on these ginger chews. I once had to drive up a mountain at 3 am and the only thing that kept me from puking from car sickness was sucking on a ginger chew. Yes, the taste of ginger can be polarizing, but honestly, anything is better than puking out a car window.

Bubbles With Fiber, Make You Go Quicker

Did you know Olipop has nine grams of fiber per can!? It’s no wonder why so many people report having to run to the bathroom after chugging one. This can come in handy on the days you’re feeling backed up for a little poop boost.

If You Have To Go, At Least Make It ~Chic~

If you haven’t heard of one of these, you’re welcome. Use this aesthetic ottoman to help move things along (if you catch my drift).

Your Shit Won’t Stink

I keep one of these in every bag because you can literally never be too prepared. As if using the bathroom in public wasn’t embarrassing enough, at least you can cover up the smell. The scent actually masks odors and always come in handy when you’re in a pinch or traveling. The OG citrus is a personal fave.

Popping Antacids Like Candy

I’ve never been able to stomach the original chalky tums, but when these came out they literally saved my life. I have to be careful or I’ll start eating these like candy because not only do they taste good but the instant relief is addicting.

Just Thrive Probiotic

If you’re a constipated girlie, or honestly just a woman, you should have a quality probiotic in your rotation. I’ve personally used Just Thrive for the last 3 months and the difference in my digestion is legit night and day.

Because You Don’t Already Have Enough Beverages

Like every other woman on the planet, you probably have at least 4 beverages in front of you already. Why not add another? I swear bone broth has healed my gut. Plus it’s like drinking a mug of chicken noodle soup and TBH, what’s more comforting than that?

Relief For the Bloat Queens

Nothing worse than showing up to a bloat-inducing dinner in your “standing room only” jeans. I’ve never *added to cart* faster than when I learned about Arrae because I’m never going to give up cheese and pasta, but I would be a hell of a lot happier if I didn’t have to unbutton my pants before dessert.
