Tips / Other

An upset stomach and indigestion are unavoidable in life. At some point everyone deals with these symptoms and figures out a way through it. Many choose to surrender to their stomach and make their peace with lying beside the toilet for hours, but others want to fight it and get the bug out their system as fast as possible. For those on a trip, whether business or pleasure, an upset stomach can put a damper on plans and even force someone to reschedule. Fortunately, these tips will help anyone avoid or treat an upset stomach.

 

Common symptoms of an upset stomach are heartburn, acid reflux, nausea and bloating. One of the best ways to avoid an upset stomach is to always stay hydrated. The body needs water to digest and absorb nutrients. If the body runs without those nutrients it is more susceptible to an upset stomach. It’s recommended women drink 2.7 liters a day and men drink 3.71 liters a day.

 

Ginger is a well-known remedy for an upset stomach. The chemicals in the root can help quicken the stomach contractions and make the food move through the stomach. This is useful for those that can recognize the first symptoms of an upset stomach. Catch it early enough and the ginger will be able to work fast enough to avoid the true annoyance of indigestion. It’s for this purpose many recommend drinking ginger ale when someone has an upset stomach because some of the all-natural drinks have enough to settle the stomach.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.
