10 Top Grade Homeopathic Medicines for Abdominal Pain 

Abdominal pain is a symptom that can arise from various reasons. Some of the reasons are not serious (like pain from gas, indigestion, muscle pull) that tend to resolve quickly with home treatment or mild medicines. However some reasons are serious (like appendicitis) needing immediate medical help. Homeopathic medicines for abdominal pain are safe, natural and effective and can be used in abdominal pain of mild to moderate intensity.homeopathic medicines for abdominal pain

Many people use the term ‘stomach ache’ instead of abdomen pain to refer to pain in any area of the abdomen. But it is incorrect as stomach is just one organ in the abdomen along with other organs which includes  liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, large intestine, small intestine, kidneys and appendix. Abdominal pain can arise from any sort of inflammation, infection or disease of any of the various organs that lies in abdomen. The abdomen pain can be localised to one part of abdomen or it can be widespread. The location of pain depends upon which organ of abdomen is involved. The nature of pain also varies like it can be cramping, burning, tearing, drawing, colicky etc. 


The cause of abdominal pain depends upon the area of the abdomen involved and the organs that lie in that area. 

There are various common causes of abdomen pain, like gas, constipation, vomiting, irritable bowel syndrome (a common functional disorder affecting the colon means the large intestine. Symptoms include pain/cramping in abdomen, diarrhoea/constipation/alternating diarrhoea and constipation and gas, bloating in abdomen.)

Gastroenteritis (inflammation of stomach and intestine causing diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps that can arise from bacterial or viral infection), gastritis (inflamed stomach), stomach ulcer, food intolerance (like lactose intolerance), and GERD (gastrointestinal reflux disease – backflow of stomach acid into the food pipe occurs that causes heartburn), Crohn’s disease (an inflammatory bowel disease which is autoimmune in origin that can cause inflammation in any part of the digestive tract), and celiac disease (a disease of autoimmune origin in which eating gluten which is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye triggers an immune reaction in small intestine in person having this disease causing damage of small intestine) are some other causes. 

Infection in the urinary tract, kidney stone, a muscle pull, and abdominal cramps in women during menses are also reasons for abdominal pain. 

The less common causes that require urgent medical help for abdominal pain are inflamed liver (hepatitis), stones in gallbladder, appendicitis (inflamed appendix), kidney infection, heart condition like congestive heart failure, cancer (of stomach, bowels, pancreas), organ rupture like appendix, pneumonia, faecal impaction, intussusception ( a serious condition in which one part of the intestine slides into an adjacent part of the intestine), ectopic pregnancy (when embryo starts to grow in place other than uterus like in fallopian tubes.)

Critical signs that indicate the need for urgent medical help include very intense, unbearable abdomen pain or when abdomen pain is attended with blood in vomiting, blood in stool, high fever, constant vomiting, intensely tender abdomen and trouble in breathing.

Homeopathic Medicines for Abdominal Pain 

Homeopathy carries a great scope to manage abdominal pain arising from various different causes. The homeopathic medicines help in abdominal pain of various types and causes like gas issues, constipation, gastritis, gastric ulcer, food intolerance, food allergies, stomach infection, menstrual cramps except in case of presence of any of the above mentioned critical sign indicative of serious cause (acute emergencies like appendicitis, perforated gastric ulcer, acute gallstone, colic, intussusception etc). Such emergency cases should be dealt with conventional mode of treatment only. One should opt use of homeopathic medicine for abdominal pain only after complete case analysis and its diagnosis. This is important to rule out the cause behind abdominal pain which will help to decide whether one can take homeopathic medicines or if there is an urgent need of help from conventional systems of medicines as in case of abdominal pain that indicates medical emergency.
