I am sure we have all experienced this before or can at least relate. Maybe you caught something on the airplane on the way to your destination. Maybe you ate something that doesn’t agree with your stomach. Maybe you are already sensitive in terms of digestion and you have a tummy ache. Today on the blog I wanted to cover a few things you can do in Salem to try to bounce back if you don’t feel so hot.
Head over to Jolie Tea Co.
Jolie Tea Co. is my personal favorite place in Salem to grab tea. They have a huge selection and the staff is very knowledgeable. I’d seek out a tea that has peppermint in it, which is known to help calm an upset stomach. You could even let the staff help guide you in creating a blend aimed at tummy aches! Find a park bench in the Common which is right next door and sip your tea slowly. Take a little rest and let the tea do its work.
Grab soup from New England Soup Factory
New England Soup Factory has tons of options available, many of which are vegan or vegetarian too. Check out their website to see the day’s specials or find something on the regular menu that is brothy and calming. Do a little people watching and see if the soup helps you out.
Alternatively, the wonton soup from Koto is delicious and one of my favorites. It might be a good option for you if you aren’t into New England Soup Factory.
If you need a pharmacy
There is a CVS right on Essex street, right in the middle of the action. If you need some medicine or supplies, it’s easily accessible.
Is it anxiety?
If your stomach upset is tied to anxiety, maybe consider popping into a yoga class at The Salty Buddha. They are right on Washington street and you might be able to pay a one time drop-in price to get into a class.

Okay maybe I am the weird one here, but sometimes after my stomach has been aching I like spicy food. No? I’m the only one. Well, okay just in case I’m not…Howling Wolf. Head inside and grab a burrito and a bottle of water and you’re good to go. I also recommend their chips and queso if you’re up for it, they are delicious.
What are your suggestions? Feel free to leave them in the comments below and I hope this helped. Enjoy!! <3
