All health issues begin with our gut, it can be hard to believe but our gut health indeed affects our overall health. Now and then, we all have experienced irritated and burning stomach, particularly in summers. Unlike many of you, I got this problem quite often.

I used to stay awake at night due to stomach pain and remain constantly annoyed. One day, I got this unbearable stomach pain and following this, I rushed to the best gastroenterologist in Lahore, where I was diagnosed with a stomach ulcer. I followed the medications for months and got rid of the problems.

A heated stomach is usually accompanied by the burning sensation in your stomach or can even result in stomach pain. A heated stomach can be a cause of discomfort and can affect your well-being in general.

There can be several reasons behind a heated stomach including

  1. Acid reflux- the reverse flow of stomach acid towards your food canal results into a burning sensation in the stomach

  3. Stomach ulcer- stomach ulcer can also be the reason behind your heated stomach. The ulcer can be due to increased production of stomach acid or due to some infection
  4. Irritable bowel syndrome- another cause of stomach discomfort can be intestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome

4- Hydrating foods

Several foods are rich in water because the water content in these foods can help to lower the stomach heat. Some of the fruits and vegetables are quite water rich in nature. For example, eating watermelon and cucumber can help to reduce stomach heat. Other than eating these, you must avoid the ones that have high citric content as they can contribute to increasing your stomach acidity.

5- Water

Other than hydrating foods, water itself works like the magic drink to lower stomach acidity. It can help to relieve your stomach that will ultimately help to reduce the stomach heat.

 When I was getting treated for my stomach issue at Lahore General Hospital, I used to consume 3-litre water daily and it really helped me to get rid of my problem.

6- Coconut water

Apart from all the remedies, using coconut oil can be an effective cure. Coconut water is alkaline in nature and can lower the level of stomach acids.

Apart from including certain foods, avoiding oily, spicy and citrus products can help you to get a cooled stomach. However, if your symptoms persist and you are unable to bear with them, it is advisable to visit a physician.
