There are two great natural treatments for anxiety-related stomach issues:
  • Lemon balm has been used since the Middle Ages as a calming herb. Take 400 mg twice daily to prevent your stomach from reacting to your worried thoughts; available in drugstores for about $4.
  • You can also try iberogast, available in health food stores for around $20. Iberogast is a blend of plants and herbs, including caraway, chamomile, licorice, milk thistle and peppermint. Adding 20 drops to your water can sooth the receptors in your stomach when anxiety hits.
