Ever heard of someone dying from a broken heart? Or the seemingly healthy and successful 30-something who had a heart attack? The truth is that we can go through our daily lives making all the right choices; choosing salad over french fries, or a yoga class over a Netflix binge. Yet, even if we live our healthiest physical lives, are we protected from the ever ubiquitous silent killer called stress?

Let’s face it, stress affects us all. It can appear as a migraine, or a wave of discomfort and pain all throughout the body. It can be bubbling under the surface or a freight train heading straight toward us. The tricky part is that if stress goes unresolved, it compounds over time and correlates to debilitating and even life-threatening illnesses. A common issue for many people is stomach pain caused by stress.

Associated symptoms of stomach pain include indigestion, Irritable bowel syndrome, upset stomach, and cramps. But it doesn’t stop there. In fact, “95% of all illnesses are caused or worsened by stress. The key to health is learning how to actively relax,” said NY Times Bestselling Author, Dr. Mark Hyman, MD.

Relaxing itself requires a great effort toward shifting our daily habits and implementing treatment. But in contrast to the painstaking symptoms associated with stomach pain caused by stress, this effort is progressive motion toward a healthy wellbeing. In order to heal stomach pain naturally with Herbal Formulas, it’s important to differentiate between acute stomach pain and chronic stomach pain.

Acute Stomach Pain

Symptoms of stomach pain vary for each person, however acute stomach pain generally regards a sudden or spontaneous onset. The pain tends to be localized in one area of the abdomen and common causes include acid reflux, ulcers, diarrhea, constipation, stomach flu, and you guessed it -- stress. Cramps often accompany the pain and result in bloating, indigestion and constipation. Localized pain is usually associated with a particular organ and the location of the pain can often indicate what the cause of it is.

Tummy Rescue is an herbal remedy for stomach pain that acts fast to relieve any tummy pains caused by nausea, heartburn, indigestion, vomiting, diarrhea and bloating. This dynamic combination of Chinese herbs also treats the underlying issues of stomach pain by optimizing the digestive function of meats and greasy Foods, starches, minerals and alcohol.

Chronic Stomach Pain

Whereas acute stomach pain comes in spurts caused by a trackable source, chronic stomach pain can persist over long periods of time, and tends to be the result of an underlying disease or illness like irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, or lactose intolerance. Over time, compounded stress can lead to debilitating diseases associated with chronic stomach pain because the digestive system becomes compromised.

To harmonize digestive function, our Stress Formula includes all natural Chinese herbs like Zhi Gan Cao, that invigorate the stomach by improving transportation functions of the digestive channels.

To prevent chronic stomach pain it’s important to minimize risk factors by eating healthy, drinking plenty of water, and exercising regularly. However, stress can creep in to wreak havoc on our bodies, even with a healthy lifestyle. Herbal formulas for stomach pain help treat the underlying causes of stomach pain, and have been supported by thousands of years of research and clinical application.

We can take great physical measures to prevent disease, but in order to truly live a healthy life we need to also treat our emotional wellbeing. When grounding rituals like meditation, yoga or hot baths are combined with Herbal Formulas we see effective, long-term results. Which means less time stressing, and more time living.
