THE ABDOMINAL PAIN
Acute abdominal pain is not always due to a serious disease. Problems are often caused by food that is hard to digest or that is spoiled. Even mental stress can be felt in the stomach. For a child with a tummy ache, a gentle abdominal massage and some warm herbal tea - along with a little tender attention - may bring relief. However, if the pain is severe, persists over several hours or is accompanied by diarrhea or vomiting, it may be a more serious condition. If the abdomen is hard, tight, and swollen, appendicitis may be present. Other culprits could be bacteria, viruses, worms or other parasitic infestation, or gastrointestinal tumors. Gallstones and infections of the bladder, kidney or ovaries can also cause severe, often colicky pain. In most cases, naturopathy offers effective treatments.

SYMPTOMS OF ABDOMINAL PAIN
EXAMININING THE SYMPTOMS
Symptoms of abdominal pain include cramping and discomfort in the abdominal region, Diarrhea, vomiting and burning in the stomach and esophagus can also occur. The pain can be generalized or localized and can be felt across the abdomen, around the navel, along the upper and lower sides of the stomach and across the rib cage.
Symptoms may vary depending on the underlying cause and the severity of the condition.
POSSIBLE LIFESTYLE CHANGES FOR ABDOMINAL PAIN
THINGS YOU CAN DO
Abdominal pain can be prevented by developing regular eating and bowel habits. Avoid chewing gum and drinking carbonated beverages that contribute to swallowing air. Avoid abdominal injuries by always wearing a seat belt whenever driving or riding in a car.
TREATMENT IS CAUSE DEPENDENT
Treatment of abdominal pain is determined by whatever it is that is causing the symptoms. Most mild abdominal discomfort can be improved by:
- Getting adequate rest.
- Eating smaller, more frequent meals.
- Drinking plenty of fluids.
- Avoiding high-fat foods.
If the pain does not subside within a day or so; worsens and becomes more frequent; is accompanied by vomiting, diarrhea, nausea or fever; or if the pain localizes to one specific area of the abdomen, see a health care provider.
GENERAL BENEFICIAL DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS FOR DIGESTIVE DISORDERS
Digestive Enzymes enhance digestion. All living things need enzymes in order to maintain life. The body depends upon enzymes to help purify the blood, break down fats, cleanse the colon, maintain proper cholesterol levels and maintain peak energy levels. Food enzymes are not something new, but have been known to exist since the time of Hippocrates. It has long been recognized that illness is related to improper diet and inadequate nutrition and that fasting, juicing, and diets rich in herbs and raw foods help restore the body to health.
ENZYMES & HEALTH
Traditional foods and ethnic diets with herbs were the rule prior to the introduction of modern processed foods. One of the longest living populations on earth, the Hunz, subsisted primarily on a raw food diet, a diet abundant with enzymes. Enzymes act within different ranges of temperature and pH, depending upon their type and function and are easily destroyed by cooking, including microwave ovens. Work being done in Europe with raw food diets show that patients with long-standing degenerative diseases are able to make remarkable recoveries, and the National Institute of Health has recently released a study showing that eating smaller meals leads to a longer life. This suggests that our intrinsic enzyme production is better able to take care of smaller dietary loads than a larger intake of food.
Enzymes are complex protein molecules that are found in every cell in your body. Enzymes can become activated, and are capable of specific tasks such as, the production of energy or exchange of oxygen, and carbon dioxide, when we breathe. They are able to transfer energy to other molecules, making it easier for them to be produced, and utilized by the body, creating a domino effect, and therefore, speeds up all bodily functions. Our body contains 1,300 different enzymes that break down nutrients, rebuild cells, and cause the body to function disease-free. The digestive system transforms food into energy for the body's use by breaking down complex proteins, fats and carbohydrates into smaller, simpler, and more usable forms. Without this transformation, digestion and assimilation of nutrients is difficult to impossible. Your health is more overtaxed, and abused by excesses of processed foods, and stimulants: baked flour, dairy, and, caffeine, soft drinks, sugar, and alcohol. Digestion begins with the sight and smell of food that stimulates the secretion of enzymes. The tasting and chewing allows saturation of the salivary enzyme, amylase, which breaks down the starch to glucose when chewing potato or bread. The pH drops to an acid range as low as four or five. The upper portion of the stomach called the fundus continues to use amylase and other enzymes for predigestion. The stomach contents are then passed through the pyloric valve into the small intestine where it is mixed with pancreatic juices. These juices are rich in enzymes such as protease (protein), amylase (starch) and lipase (fat, digesters). They continue to digest and prepare food for assimilation. The alkaline nature of the pancreatic secretions helps to neutralize the stomach acids (which aid in digestion), and protects the small intestine.
Enzymes have a great effect upon the entire immune function. White blood cells contain digestive enzymes such as alkaline phosphatase, lipase, protease, amylase and peptidase, which are part of the pancreatic juices, and are only a part of many enzymes that increase immune function. Pancreatin contains the pancreatic enzymes amylase, lipase, and trypsin. These useful pancreatic enzymes assist in the breakdown of starches, fats, and proteins. These white blood cell enzymes act to destroy bacterial and viral proteins (which may cause disease) and also act on improperly digested food. It has been shown that the white blood cell concentration in the stomach and the intestines increase with digestion as white blood cell enzymes are needed to help with the breakdown and assimilation of food. A diet rich in raw food, and using herbs as food and medicine is rich in enzymes, which predigest the food in the stomach sparing the body's white blood cell reserve. This is why a decreased appetite and/or nausea often accompanies a disease process. Also, digesting cooked or processed foods requires energy and white blood cells that are needed elsewhere to fight the disease process. Brain chemistry turns off the hunger center in the brain as needed so the immune system can be at peak function to fight the disease process.
Enzymes are very useful in treating various illnesses. They are absorbed by the body as intact molecules and are distributed to the body through the bloodstream as needed supporting the body's needs against the disease process.
Bromelain: found in pineapple is used to decrease inflammation in arthritis, rheumatism and muscular-skeletal injury. It is proven to be more effective than commonly prescribed nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and has no toxic side effects. It is best to use fresh pineapple in small amounts or diluted in water or juice, as the canned or bottled has been heated and lost its enzymes. Cystic fibrosis is a disease in which the pancreas cannot secrete enough enzymes. This usually accompanies other glandular disorders affecting the thyroid, adrenals, spleen and other glands. It also toxifies the liver and can be related to bowel problems, sleep disorders, hormonal estrogen imbalance and loss of energy.
Protease: is an enzyme shown to slow metastasis and contribute to tumor shrinkage while protease reduces pain of cancer.
Lipase & Amylase: Recent evidence shows that rich lipase and amylase levels in the blood lead to a decrease in arteriosclerotic plaques, thus making enzyme therapy useful against coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis.
Aging & Enzymes: Enzymes have proven to give elderly patients more energy, a sense of well being, better nutrient assimilation, and resistance to disease. Aging reduces the ability to produce enzymes and assimilate nutrients, thus slowing our ability to heal.
Enzyme Deficiencies: Deficiencies in enzymes are often associated with gastrointestinal disease, digestive disturbances, periodic gas and bloating. Meals that seem to remain in the stomach for hours or days may be a sign of illness. An evaluation by your physician is needed to determine the cause. Herbal enzyme therapy may be the cure.
The use of enzymes as a supplement with meals has been popular for some time. We consume cooked and processed foods such as fast foods that are nutritionally incomplete. This adds to the burden of the pancreas and immune system to replace lost enzymes, robbing the body of energy production, enzyme reserve and function. Enzyme supplementation with meals is a very good preventive measure. A good general digestive formula, which also helps the body to adjust to its proper weight and works great for weight loss, should contain betaine HCI (increases stomach acidity), pancreatin and pancrelipase ( digests starches, fats, proteins), papain (digests proteins), pepsin (digests proteins), diatase (digest starches), and Ox Bile (digests fat).
Many herbs are enzyme activators that potentiate and enhance enzymatic action while reducing inflammation, removing gas and increasing digestion: Fenugreek (Trigonella foenumgraecum) is one of these herbs (See below for Supplement Recommendations).

Taken internally or externally, Prickly Ash Bark relieves chronic pain. Usually a prickly ash poultice applied to the skin over the area of pain is more effective than a prickly ash tincture or tea taken by mouth. Test the herb on a small area of skin first to make sure you are not among the very few people sensitive or allergic to the herb. About 1350, a book entitled the Ri Yong Ben Cao (Home Guide to Useful Medicines) first advised Chinese physicians of the medicinal benefits of prickly ash, also known as Szechuan pepper. Before prickly ash was used medicinally, however, it was applied in the Imperial Court as the sole anesthetic for the operation by which the Emperor acquired his court eunuchs. Traditional Chinese Medicine uses prickly ash to warm the "middle burner," the energies in the middle of the body that power the immune response and help digest food. Traditional herbal medicine also uses prickly ash to kill parasites and to alleviate abdominal pain, particularly when the source of the pain is a parasitic infection. Prickly ash powder may be used as a poultice applied to the abdomen to treat abdominal pain (recommended over teas or tinctures for this purpose). Although rare, may also be taken as capsule. Chopped prickly ash bark can be used to make teas or tinctures when combined with: Ginger and/or Panax Ginseng for relieving chronic abdominal pain. Ginger is used to treat nausea and vomiting in long-term illnesses. The seed or "eyes" of Prickly Ash are used in teas as an acrid, bitter, and cooling treatment for wheezing or swelling. Precautions: Always seek a medical diagnosis when there is acute abdominal pain. Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches that Prickly Ash should be avoided when there is fever with profuse sweating, and used with caution during pregnancy. Prickly Ash can stop lactation, and should be avoided by mothers wishing to continue nursing. Products made from the American Prickly Ash (Zanthoxylum americanum) can cause sunlight sensitivity. This effect is likely to be a problem only if the user takes prescription ACE inhibitors for high blood pressure or eats large amounts of celery or celeriac or takes St. John's wort. Sunburn can be avoided by avoidance of midday sun or by use of sun block.
Rooibos also contains an anti-spasmodic so it helps to relieve digestive distress. African women enjoy Rooibos during pregnancy because it is high in iron, contains no caffeine, and relieves heartburn and nausea. In addition, their babies are given Rooibos to relieve colic.

DETERMINE THE CAUSE OF PAIN FOR TREATMENT
A Naturopathic health care practitioner can determine the cause of chronic abdominal pain and can offer various forms of natural treatment. He or she may suggest ingesting some medicinal plant (herbal therapy) or applying gentle abdominal massages with essential oils and compresses to help relieve cramps. Enemas and fasting are often recommended to relieve the burden on digestive organs. Homeopathic treatments include aromatherapy, acupressure and herbs.
For any abdominal pain that becomes a serious problem or is not relieved by simple means as those given here, you will need to be evaluated by your health care provider and tests may need to be used to diagnose your condition. If pain becomes acute (sharp and very intense), go to your emergency room for evaluation and treatment. It can be serious and possibly life-threatening in some cases.
PROTECTIVE STOMACH TEAS
You can generally depend on Chamomile tea to work miracles when you suffer from abdominal pain. Use 1 teaspoon of Chamomile Flowers per cup. Drink 2 to 3 cups daily.

The Abdomen-36 also called Stomach-36 (ST:36) acupressure point may be stimulated to relieve abdominal pain. This point is called Zusanli (The Leg Three miles; Longevity Point). To find the point, place your palms on both kneecaps. Use your ring fingers to press the bony protrusions to the side of the head of the tibia (shin bone) about 3 body-inches below the lower edge of the knee cap. Forcefully massage the area just below it on both legs. This point increases energy. Chinese foot soldiers used to halt every three miles and massage ST-36 for renewed energy.
