"When I decided to work with Helena, I was completely lost. I didn't understand why I was so uncomfortable and stressed. Helena took the time to listen to me, and clearly explained the correlation between my gut, skin and feelings. I feel an extraordinary improvement since starting her treatment plan... I'm HEALTHY! Thank you, Helena." ~ Coraline

What is Abdominal Pain?

Abdominal pain is pain felt anywhere from below your ribs to your pelvis. It is also known as tummy pain, gut pain or stomach pain. The abdomen houses many organs, including your stomach, liver, pancreas, small and large bowel, and reproductive organs. There are also major blood vessels in the abdomen.

  • Makes you want to stay completely still or makes you very restless
  • Varies from a minor problem to one needing urgent surgery
