Stomach AC by Dr. Kang Formulas is used as a supplement to a balanced diet when stomachache or ulcer symptoms are present. This formula helps relieve stomach spasms, alleviate pain, promote blood circulation, strengthen digestion and absorption, and promote the healing of ulcers, preventing vomiting, hiccupping, and regurgitation of acid.
From the Western scientific perspective stomachaches result from gastrointestinal disorders such as acute and chronic gastritis (from indigestible food combinations or amounts) and stomach and duodenal ulcers. The use of alcohol and aspirin (especially together) can clear the protective mucous layer of the stomach, causing ulceration and pain.
From the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, a wide range of etiologies can cause a stomachache. Among these are stagnation of Stomach Qi, lack of Yin nourishing or deficient Qi, improper diet or unbalanced food choices, mental stress (disharmony of gastric Qi), and depression or anxiety marked by stagnation of Stomach Qi (Hepatic Qi affects the stomach, and also hypo-activity of Yang in Middle Jiao). All result in stomachache.
