Celebrated everywhere whether you are Irish or not, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the busiest days of the year for most bars and restaurants. If you’re heading out to your favorite Irish pub this weekend to enjoy traditional food, drinks and Celtic music, be prepared to relieve that inevitable upset stomach or heartburn the next morning with these natural Boiron medicines. Acidil relieves heartburn, acid indigestion and upset stomach, while Gasalia relieves bloating, pressure and pain associated with gas. Both are available in quick-dissolving tablets. If you experience nausea and an upset stomach from overindulgence in food and drink, as well as hangover symptoms, try Nux vomica pellets. Nux also works well when you feel a bit drowsy after a heavy meal, or if you tend to eat too much spicy or rich food.
