Herbs For A Nervous Stomach

One way to calm your nervous stomach is by using herbs, which can provide a gentle and effective way to treat your nervous stomach.

Peppermint has long been used to treat upset stomachs and what could be more soothing after a long stressful day than a nice cup of peppermint tea. And if you don't care for tea you could always try dabbing a little diluted peppermint oil onto your wrists or forehead to breathe in the soothing aroma.

Chamomile which is another natural treatment for upsets stomach is also available as a tea, extract or in capsule form.

Valerian which is also used as a sleep aid is another safe and natural way to treat a nervous stomach.

Kava Kava
The root of the Kava Kava plant which has been used as an effective treatment for stress is available as a tea, extract, powder or in capsule form. I've used Kava Kava during very stressful times and found it to settle my stomach done like nothing else I've ever used. It can also be helpful for someone suffering from IBS. One word of advice though the powder and extract can be a little strong tasting so you might want to try either the capsule or tea form of Kava Kava.
