Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) June 23, 2013
Seventy-five percent of children suffer from gas discomfort, a new infographic from the makers of Tummy Calm shows. The infographic is designed to illustrate the causes of stomach upset in children, as well as recommend safe and effective non-prescription remedies.
"A stomachache can be a frustrating symptom to understand in small children," said Jacqueline Lawrence, President, TJL Enterprises Inc. "While it's a common problem, there are a wide variety of potential causes. We created this infographic with the help of a pediatrician to help easily explain the many potential causes of stomachaches, as well as provide pros and cons to potential remedies. We hope it will be helpful to many parents, and that it will be shared among viewers."
The infographic details the causes and symptoms of childhood and infant gas. Incorrect feeding and eating habits can cause a youth to ingest too much air. Crying can also cause too much air intake, the infographic states, resulting in symptoms like bloating, mild cramping, and more. A child who eats junk food or has food sensitivities may experience stomach pain, as may a child who suffers from stress or anxiety.
In some children, food sensitivities to gluten and carbohydrates can cause gastrointestinal upset. Using microscopic particles of vegetable carbons, Tummy Calm attracts toxins and other causes of gas, allowing these items to pass out of the digestive system naturally.
Recommended by pharmacists, Tummy Calm is one of the most popular holistic remedies on the market, providing instant relief from abdominal cramping and gas. In its infographic, Tummy Calm lists the pros and cons of a variety of remedies for child stomach pain, including herbal teas, homeopathic medicine, probiotics, and simethicone gas drops.
Massage is a popular way to help soothe an upset stomach. The infographic points out that while massage can be a safe way to promote a child’s self-healing, proper massage techniques are not intuitive, often requiring at least moderate training for parents. Herbal teas may provide relief to adults who try them, but teas and supplements may be less palatable to children and infants.
The infographic also mentions simethicone gas drops, which help treat gas centralized at the top of the stomach. However, these drops usually contain synthetic ingredients and can have a taste many describe as "soapy." Simethicone drops also require regular dosing with every meal. Tummy Calm can be given when symptoms appear. Additionally, Tummy Calm, from the makers of Colic Calm, works to relieve the source of gas, rather than simply treating the symptoms. Great-tasting, Tummy Calm is made from all-natural ingredients without chemicals or sweeteners.
Tummy Calm is available at most major drugstores or online. To view the Tummy Calm infographic, visit http://tummycalm.com/tummy-aches-infographic.html.
