All of these organs in the abdomen can be a source of stomach pain. However, there are many other causes of abdominal pain that are not due to organs within. Treatment of the pain is usually targeted to the organ affected.

Some stomach discomfort resolves without the need for treatment of any form.  Despite this, you need to know the following 5 home remedies for your abdominal pain since you may not know when you need them.

Bananas

Bananas are high in both water and fiber, which help with digestion and the regularity of bowel movements. One medium-sized banana contains around 10% of a person’s daily fiber requirements. Bananas are also high in Vitamin B6 and potassium, two nutrients that aid with digestion. Bananas can also help by acting as a natural antacid.

When patients have gastrointestinal issues like abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting, many doctors recommend sticking to a BRAT diet. Bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast (BRAT) are the four main components of the BRAT diet. Water and electrolytes, such as potassium, are lost when you experience abdominal pain coupled with diarrhea. These nutrients are easily replaced with bananas. In those with inflammatory bowel disease, high-fiber diets can cause bloating and stomach cramps.
