1. Chamomile tea
For relief before bedtime, try drinking a cup of soothing chamomile tea half an hour to an hour before you sleep. Chamomile tea is commonly known to have calming properties for stress levels and promotes sleeping well, but it also works well with inflammation and can reduce the swelling and inflammation in your stomach. It works to balance out acidity levels in the stomach, therefore, maintaining a healthy gut. Instant chamomile tea bag blends are found easily in the supermarket, but you can also use dried chamomile petals, found in natural health food stores. Brew it up and drink it while it’s hot!
