Well, most incidences of chest pain are common that occur due to anxiety or gas buildup. So, instead of rushing to the doctor and wasting money, is there anything you can do to get rid of the pain right from the comfort of your homes?
The answer is, yes, there are certain home remedies for chest pain that can cure in a simple and effective way. Want to know what they are? Then please, go ahead and read!
1. Kneel On The Bed:
In the case of chest pain, immediately kneel down on the bed. In this position, the head has to face down, and your buttocks have to be up in the air. Gas automatically passes out of your system.
2. Drink Some Fluid:
If the pain is due to gas build up in your abdomen, drink a cup of hot water or any other hot beverage like tea. As you drink the hot liquid, the gas from your body goes out relieving you of the chest pain.
3. The Cold Pack:
If the chest pain is due to strained muscles (you know this because an area of your chest swells), apply an ice pack to your chest. You can make a cold pack by clubbing together the ice cubes and wrapping them in a cloth. Keep the pack on your chest for about 10 to 20 minutes. Repeat the process for three times a day. The swelling reduces after 48 to 72 hours. When it does, cover the area that hurts with a warm towel for some time.
4. Garlic In Milk:
Take a glass of milk. To it, add 6 to 8 chopped garlic pieces. Now, boil the milk and drink it along with the garlic pieces (make sure to chew the garlic pieces, and not gulp them down). It will relieve you of chest pain.
5. Turmeric In Milk:
Like garlic, turmeric is another herb that is useful to relieve you of chest pain. Take ½ tea spoon of turmeric powder and mix it with a cup of milk. Ensure the milk is hot. To the drink, add two spoons of honey and a bit of black pepper.
This is the simplest method to reduce chest pain immediately. Take a tablet of aspirin with a glass of water.
7. A Pinch Of Baking Soda:
Another easy home remedy for chest pain is to add baking soda in a hot cup of water. Drinking it releases your body of acidity, thereby giving you relief from chest pain.
8. Apple Cider Vinegar:
Consume two tea spoons of apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is a type of vinegar that helps in digestion, thereby preventing the production of gas in your abdomen area. This in turn reduces the pain in your chest.
9. Lie Down:
When your body complains of chest pain, immediately lie down on your bed with the head elevated. If the pain is due to acidity, the position releases the gas of your body. Stay in this position for a while before you feel comfortable and free of pain.
10. Back Massage:
When you have sudden chest pain, get someone to massage your back. Lay with your face down and get your upper back strongly massaged. This will ease you of chest pain and also of any other physical pains.
The above tips are for the chest pain that is usually not fatal. However, if the pain is too strong and keeps recurring, it’s always best to consult a doctor.
