Abdominal pain can be caused due to a variety of reasons and can be a result of a disorder affecting the other organs of the body as well. The abdomen or the stomach is situated in the lower area of the ribs, just above the pelvic bone and the flanks present on each side. The pain caused in a stomach ache generally arises from the tissues of the stomach walls which surround the abdominal cavity but a stomach ache can also be used to define pain arising from the organs that exist in the abdominal cavity as well. The abdominal cavity holds the lower lungs and the kidneys and when pain occurs in these areas it is known as 'referred' pain, because though the pain caused comes from outside of the actual abdomen it feels like there is pain in the abdomen itself. Therefore to understand the cause of your abdominal pain it is first important to find out the actual origin of the pain and hence you will be able to treat it effectively. The pain caused is generally sudden and often becomes acute, sometimes even becoming chronic. if so then it is best to have it examined by a physician. The best remedy in order to cure a stomach ache is the use of an apple. Take an apple, cut it up and remove the core. Make sure to leave the skin and smear a little of ginger and sugar onto it. Heat the preparation in a microwave for about 40 seconds and then eat the slices when they are warm. Try using a heat pack to relax the muscles in your stomach.

Inflammation is the body defense mechanism against bacteria and viruses. This inflammation is in simple definition; the body's biological process by which there is removal of any damaged cells and bacteria and also to start the healing process. Contrary to popular perception inflammation is not the fist signs of an infection or that something has gone wrong. Because if the areas of damaged skin or body did not get inflamed ,then the damage inflicted would never be repaired and then the progressive destruction of the tissue in that area would eventually prove very hazardous for the person. The best way to treat an inflammation is the application of a cold ice pack. The cold basically serves to reduce the amount of blood flow to the tissues and thus reducing the amount of nerve stimulation and reducing the level of inflammation.
