stomach ache - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Stress flares up his stomach. Suddenly he's intolerant to almost every food as if he's got the flu. It's a serious thing, painful too. I can't think why we don't acknowledge it more when the body talks to us this way. What else does it have to do to get our attention and say we need a calmer and more relaxing way of living?
Maisy had stomach ache so often that we'd take it as part of how she was. Years later it turned out that her body had been attacking the good bacteria in her guts every time she suffered high stress. She was also gluten and lactose intolerant. She was intolerant to dark green vegetables, to onions, to foods that raised her histamine levels. Poor girl shouldn't have been eating the same as the rest of us at all. She needed very particular foods and small meals six times a day rather than three. Once we sorted that out the stomach aches, the bloating and excessive gas went away. Such a huge difference to her health... different food, probiotics and vitamin supplements... daily exercise... she was a changed girl.
The stomach aches came so fast that I'd double over, leaning on a doorway or whatever was close. The pain was intense, a spasm that took over and left me unable to think let alone walk until it had passed.
All that stomach ache and wind, have you thought about food intolerances or irritable bowl syndrome, Cathy? There's a lot of people who can't stomach the kinds of foods that are pushed at us in advertising. We evolved with food being a more simple thing and less processed foods can help. Artificial sweeteners have been shown to damage the healthy gut bacteria you need for digestion and support of your immune system. So, is it a bit of stomach ache because you ate too much, or is there a pattern to it with certain foods?
