Stomach weakness is a condition where long-term stress makes the stomach irritable and unable properly digest food. Stomach weakness can also be hereditary. Symptoms include nausea, an uneasy feeling in the stomach, a burning pain directly after eating, and perhaps vomiting.
Treatment Plan for Stomach weakness
The stomach has a downward-directing energy, likes dampness, and does not like dryness. When the stomach is bombarded with irritating, heavy poorly-chewed foods, alcohol, coffee, and other irritating substances, it reacts by secreting too much acid and other enzymes and can ultimately begin digesting itself. When this happens, chronic ulcers can result. Learning to release stress and express pent-up emotions in a good, non-destructive way is essential. Herbal support includes relaxing herbs, bitter tonics, and demulcent and soothing herbs.
