[YEA] 01/01/2013: Anonymous from Helsinki, Finland: "I was having a problem with stomach ulcers after I had to take antibiotics for an ear infection. I was searching for natural remedies, since the last time I had the same problem about 4 years ago I was prescribed acid reflux medication that just made it worse. I came across information about cabbage juice and decided to give it a try.
I made my juice from fresh organic cabbage with my vitamix and drank 3 glasses of it per day. On the second day I started to notice how it eased my stomach pains and now that I've been drinking it for a week, almost all my pains have gone away. I'm going to stick with this dose for another week at least and probably will drink a few glasses a week after that beacause this seems to be really good stuff.
I'm so very grateful for everyone sharing this information and for me it has done miracles. I can really recommend cabbage juice to anyone suffering from stomach ulcers."Replies
01/02/2013: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "The natural antioxidant compounds in Cabbage, Broccoli, and Brussel Sprouts have been clinically proven to kill the h Pylori bacteria that causes ulcers."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 06/02/2011: Theceladon from Burlingame, Ca: "I developed an ulcer from daily aspirin and Plavix use. I've been on various PPI drugs for months with little success. I decided to try cabbage juice. Blended about 24oz in the morning and split it into 3 or 4 glasses consumed throughout the day. After about 10 days I'm feeling much better. It seems that the cabbage juice did the trick. I'm not 100% there yet but getting there."Replies
06/02/2011: Joyce from Lansdowne, Pa replies: "What is the recipe that you used for the cabbage juice? Thanks."
06/02/2011: Theceladon from Burlingame, Ca replies: "One whole cabbage chopped and blended with water, then through a strainer (this part is a little time consuming). Fill 2 big glasses and drink 1/2 glass 4 times a day. 1st 1/2 glass before breakfast, last 1/2 glass a couple hours after dinner. Also, I roll around on the living room floor to get the juice to swish around."
10/28/2011: Nancy from Samoa replies: "I just tried the cabbage juice, what happens if I drink it two hours before dinner... I added 1 cup of water as directed and drank that whole cup for the whole evening... Will something bad happen if I only consume it twice a day?"
10/21/2010: Carl from Kuna, Idaho Usa: "YES, CABBAGE JUICE WILL CURE ULCERS, BUT BUT BUT, IT HAS TO BE CONSUMED FRESH FRESH!! YOU CANNOT STORE IT IN THE FRIDGE OR IT LOSES ALL IT HEALING POWER WITHIN JUST A FEW MINUTES OF BEING JUICED."Replies
08/01/2012: Gabby from Chicago Il replies: "HI I'm Gabby :), I had a peptic ulcer just like you and I'm only 24 years old. My pain starter this year in January and I was scare to go to see a doctor because of a bad experience that a friend went through. I had read books and did a intense research online to educate my self about my pectic ulcer. When I finished my research I came out with an alkaline vegetarian diet, cabbage juice, aloe vera, and potatoe juice. Also many herbal remedies can cure ulcers. I feel great. I beat this ulcer and I highly recommended to you. I will tell you how to get rid of your ulcer as well. Just follow my instructions very careful. Your diet is the key to your healh.
Alkalizing your body, our north american diet is very acidic. You need to avoid acidic foods for now. (Meat; dairy;sugar;processed food;fried foods... Etc. ) Eat an Alkaline diet instead like organic spring leaf mix salads, fruit, vegetables, avocados, quinoa, sweet potatoes, nuts, legumes and whole grains. Becareful because not all labeled healthy food is neccesarily healthy. If you dont know what some ingredients are your body may not know either.
Early in the morning around 5:00 am drink warm water follow by 4 ounces of pure aloe vera juice( I bought the plant at a mexican store) you can buy the juice at the vitamin shoppe(Aloe Vera Gel)inner fillet) follow by raw potatoe juice drink it at around 5:30 am every morning. Pick one white medium potatoe(organic) and shred the potatoe with the skin in a grater. diluted with water and eat it.
P.S. The raw potatoe juice is only for 10 days. After you are done with the raw potatoe juice replace the raw potatoe juice with raw cabbage juice. 4 0z. Every morning. (thats the amount I could heandle, every body is different and responds different ) but you can't drink more than 1 quart of raw cabbage juice through out the day cause you can get sick(severe head aches, vomiting, nause.... )be cautious.
Around 6:00am I have a quinoa breakfast (add raisins to the quinoa) no sugar at all. Molasses 1 tbsp. and eat a banana.
Snack on carrots, black berries, berries, blueberries, water melon, melon, cantaloupes, apricots. Berries, cherrys or plums... Etc. whenever you are hungry.
quinoa rice(mix it with 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil) a half avocado and spring leaf mix salad(organic) to the salad add virgin olive oil and salt. boil or bake one medium sweet potatoes when its ready add coconut oil and molasses. I eat almost the same for dinner plus quinoa soup. I add some cayenne pepper to my quinoa soup from time to time.
I also chew up some licorise tablets from time to time. Remember to never over eat. Eat only frequently small portions through out the day. You will never feel hungry with this diet. dont eat meat at all or dairy products cause this turns very acidic in your body. quinoa is a super food and so easy to cook, you can make almost anything out of this food.
when you beat this ulcer you can slowly add acidic foods to your diet 3:1 ratio but for now because you have an open bleeding wound avoid them. Some legume products are acidic like lentils, beans and some nuts. Lentils are very good but eat them when you got rid of your ulcer. whatch out what you eat or how your body responds.
H. pylori bacteria cause masy peptic ulcers. This organism or other irritants can break down the mucosal lining of the stomach, allowing digestive acid to eat away at the underlying tissue. If you over-produce acid, as can happen in times of stress, this worsens the condition. However, many people with gastric ulcers in particular actually make too little acid. By taking herbs, you may able to speed up healing and minimize ulcer related pain.
Herbal Remedies for UlcersLong thought to aggravate ulcers, cayenne pepper in moderation actually helps heal them in some cases. Stimulating blood flow to bring healing nutrients to the area, this member of the nightshade family can be good therapy for ulcers. Taking 1/4 teaspoon in 1 cup of hot water per day is all it takes.
Cabbage and its juice are also known for their ulcer-healing abilities. Researchers have found that ulcer patients who drink 1 quart of raw cabbage juice a day often heal their ulcers in five days. Those who eat cabbage also have quicker healing times, although not as dramatic as with the juice.
Garden produce rich in flavonoids may be helpful, too. Studies indicate that some bioflavonoids inhibit the growth of H. Pylori. These compounds are also useful as anti-inflammatories. Eat red- and purple-colored foods, such as plums, berries, and red cabbage. Parsley and onions are also good sources. Garlic and licorice have also been shown to kill H. Pylori in test tubes.
Bilberry is used frequently in Russia to treat ulcers. It reduces inflammation in the stomach and intestines and protects their fragile mucous membranes. Calendula is also good for ulcers due to its wound-healing ability. It is slightly unpleasant to drink as tea; add calendula tincture to a pleasantly flavored beverage.
When it comes to ulcer herbal remedies, we've barely scratched the surface.
Licorice mimics the action of chamomile, but is even more effective. It soothes inflammation and encourages the stomach to protect itself from acid. This herb helps improve and maintain the integrity of stomach and small intestine linings by stimulating the production of a substance called mucin. When the lining of the stomach and duodenum, the upper portion of the small intestine, are well coated with mucin, ulcers are less likely to start. Use deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) to avoid raising blood pressure. Take chewable tablets shortly before meals and several hours before bedtime. Typically 250-500 mg are recommended.
Yarrow has been clinically seen to make blood clot faster and stop bleeding. If you have bleeding ulcers, yarrow tea or tincture may help control the unwanted bleeding. Yarrow is also excellent at reducing inflammation.
No matter which herbal remedy you try, you may find taking herbs at the onset of an ulcer will help ease its pain or even expediate healing. They are worth a try!
God bless you all."
Cayenne Cure for an Ulcer
Home Remedy Ingredients:
- Cayenne Pepper - 1 Teaspoon
- Glass of Hot Water
Cayenne capsules are available, but for a direct approach, drink a teaspoon of powdered cayenne pepper in a glass of hot water once a day.
It may sound a bit crazy, but people have had great success in curing difficult ulcers with cayenne.
[YEA] 07/02/2011: Azwifarwi Silima from Thohoyandou, Limpopo South Africa: "I heard by someone about the cayenne pepper, so I tried it. I put cayenne pepper in the meat, and in the most things I eat. Really its work. I have strong ulsers. But now ulsers dissappeared. Try it guys is really works. Good luck"
[YEA] 11/10/2010: Bee from Somewhere, Mo, Usa: "I have been suffering from stomach pain and nausea from a stomach ulcer for years and have seen doctors multiple times. I was told always to take antacids and avoid coffee and alcohol. Avoiding those things helped, but the antacids made the nausea increase and of course it felt like my food just didn't digest. If my stomach was empty I would be in agony, the gnawing pain of an ulcer, and frequently had bouts of nausea that made it hard to be productive.
I tried aloe vera which had some success, digestive enzymes- didn't really help, probiotics- were useful but didn't help the ulcer. I had heard of cayenne for ulcers, but was hesitant to try- the idea of putting hot pepper on a tender stomach seemed crazy! But as the pain has recently been worsening and I don't have much money to see a doctor I was desperate.
I read up a little more and decided to get a bottle of cayenne capsules. I followed the instructions- 1 pill three times a day (455 mg). The first one I took, I took it on an empty stomach before a meal and fairly quickly I felt it take effect- it did burn and I felt increasing pain at first- and I worried I had made a mistake in taking it. However, the pain eased up and as the burn subsided it felt better. I was able to eat and felt for the first time that my food was digesting better. I have continued this for just over a week now- taking it with meals- and the pain lessens every day. I even woke up in the morning PAIN FREE!! After having stomach pain every morning for years, it was an amazing feeling! I will continue taking it for at least another week to ensure that the ulcer is fully healed- also avoiding coffee, tea, alcohol, and other irritants- but I would definitely label this a remedy a success for me! Cayenne has quickly become my favorite home remedy!"Replies
11/10/2010: Tommy from North York, On, Canada replies: "Hi bee,
Thank you for sharing with us your success with cayenne peper. Did you have H. Pylori before that?"
11/11/2010: Bee from Somewhere, Mo, Usa replies: "Tommy,
I was never tested for or diagnosed with H. Pylori, but I suspect that was a possible cause."
08/08/2013: Carmel from Clacton On Sea England replies: "Not sure if I have an ulcer or not. Bad pain below the belly button - middle and sometimes a sharp stabbing pain to the side of it on the right. Get days where it is fine and days where it is bad, seems to be like a gnawing, twisting as if very very hungry even if eaten. No pain killers help. Taking ZANTAC. Waiting for consultation with "expert"! Some days it is fine other days the pain is almost unbearable. On those days I get diarrhea. Then not able to relax or work, etc. Very low. Tried raw cabbage juice for a while but could not get to shop or afford all of the cabbages. Took glutamine capsules, they seem to make no difference. It started when I had some raw garlic and it upset my tummy for days and went on from there. Was totally fine before that and not heli bacteria, have been checked and eliminated.
Am taking some cayenne but do not have much, just enough for a few days. Right now the stomach cannot feel worse so nothing to lose."
08/08/2013: Mama To Many from Tennessee, Usa replies: "Dear Carmel, I may be way off base, but this sounds very much like pain that our family has had that turns out to be appendicitis. My husband had his out when he was 22. He would get this awful pain in the belly, sometimes in response to what he ate. The pain from appendicitis can by atypical--that is, pain elsewhere than where the appendix is. It can be in the back or on the left, or in the middle.
Appendicitis does NOT mean you have to have it out. It MAY mean you need to have it out. But, appendicitis is "inflammation of the appendix. " If you can get rid of the inflammation, you are fine. But if it is infected or going to rupture, you need it out. (The question is, how to know the difference!)
My teenage son has had pain near the belly button that I was sure was appendicitis. We took him to the Dr. who said it wasn't. (Same thing happened to me - I saw my OB and a regular doctor when I had attacks. They said it wasn't appendicitis. Finally, I just went to the ER and had it out. In hindsight, I would have tried other things first.)
So, we treated my son at home. He had a few attacks and responded well to home treatment. He actually hasn't had an attack in a couple of years.
Rachel Weaver, in her book, Be Your Own Doctor, has some things she does to avoid surgery for appendicitis. She says that it is important to make sure constipation is not the problem. She has an article online about appendicitis:
Anyway, when my son had an attack, I would immediately give him charcoal tablets - maybe 4 or more. I would put a large charcoal poultice over his belly. We would also rub lobelia oil on his belly to relax it. I never did give him an enema, but apparently, in the 50's if you went to the ER with suspected appendicitis, they gave you an enema. If your pain went away, they sent you home.
All this to say, I would try activated charcoal for your pain. It is amazing for gut problems even if they aren't appendicitis. You can take 1 t. - 1 T. in an 8 oz glass of water when you have the pain. Or you can take the tablets 4-6 with plenty of water. Charcoal can be constipating if you don't get enough water. Sounds like constipation is not related to you pain, though.
Also, if you can get some lobelia oil to massage into your belly, or make a charcoal or castor oil poultice (earth clinic talks about how to do these things) you may find relief. I have found great relief with castor oil poultices for gall bladder pain when I have had it.
If you start to run a fever with this pain, or can't get the pain under control in a few hours, personally, I would go to the ER. I am not quick to run to doctors, but a ruptured appendix, can of course, be fatal.
If you have an ulcer, I believe that cayenne can heal it. (Lalitha Thomas has a story in her book, "Ten Essential Herbs" about someone healing an ulcer with cayenne.) Slippery Elm Bark Powder would also be good for gut pain and problems and for an ulcer. So would comfrey tea.
Hope you find relief soon. Let us know how you are doing.

[YEA] 03/24/2008: Paul Blake HMD from Lake Elsinore, Ca: "I have been reading your readers' emails and I wanted to make some comments about Cayenne Pepper. Cayenne is one of my favorate herbs for myself and my clients. I had prostate cancer 18 years ago and I cured it naturally using herbs, cleansing and diet only. For the cancer I used the John Ray Christopher method of cayenne tea with a teaspoon of cayenne pepper in warm water 3 times daily. Today I still use one or more teaspoons daily in my food at every meal. Just recently I received a call from a Doctor of Chinese medicine who was throwing up blood from ulcers. As I alway do I suggested cayenne capsuls using 100,000 heat units plus. He could not believe that this would work but he took my advice and within a few days his problem was over. Of course I also gave him some advice on changing diet and lifestyle. In my 18 years as a naturopahtic healer I have used cayenne many times for bleeding ulcers. Cayenne also works great for emphysema sufferors, I have seen patients get off oxygen bottles and out of wheelchairs. But the person with the disease must go beyond the herb for the disease and look at the way they eat and their lifestyle. If they do not change their life the disease will appear somewhere else in another form."Replies
02/14/2012: Sz from Toronto, Ontario replies: "To Paul Blake HMD from Lake Elsinore, Ca writes
Hi, I have h pylori and I'm suffering from it last 3 yrs stomach pain day and night can't eat anything. Could you please suggest me ulcer diet and treatment plus I'm also having fibromyalgia and depression- any naturopahtic treatment? I'll really appreciate your advice in this regards."
01/09/2013: Daniel from Hyde Park, Utah replies: "Paul, If you've read these posts on stomach ulcers, then you know they aren't that difficult to heal. You mentioned, however, that you have fibromyalgia which indicates that you have severe gut dysbiosis and a failing immune system. You're stomach is over run by harmful bacteria, and so is your small and large intestines. First, recognize that your Doctor doesn't know what he is talking about. Second, you need to focus on healing your gut through diet change as well as taking powerful probiotics and healing foods. I highly recommend reading "Gut and Psychology Syndrom" by Dr. Natasha Campbell-Mcbride. Go to her website where there are many resources for people in your situation.) Remember "all disease begins in the Gut" - Hippocrates"
05/17/2013: Amanda from Ca replies: "Hi I was wondering does cayenne have the same effect on an ulcer if you have the bacteria h pylori? I had cayenne pepper on a meal I ate a few days ago, after dinner I was in so much pain I was in bed wanting to cry."
[YEA] 01/02/2008: Lisa from Southeast, USA: "12 years ago I finally got healed of an ulcer for which I'd been taking medication for several years. So when I recently began having that telltale burning, gnawing pain in my stomach, I knew exactly what was happening.
I also knew the whole routine...doctor's appointment, upper GI, ultrasound etc etc., just to have them tell me what I already knew. PLUS, they'd prescribe medications which my insurance will no longer cover because there are now non-prescription strengths of them available over-the-counter. Needless to say, I was willing to try an alternative method to save myself the time and expense. If you've ever had an ulcer, you usually don't have to have someone tell you what one feels like.
Anyway, I read somewhere about cayenne's healing effects. A week ago, I was up and down through the night with that burning, and all the antacids I could chew were simply giving me no relief. So Thursday morning I got up, got brave, and mixed a full measuring teaspoon of cayenne pepper into a teacup of very warm water and drank it down on an empty stomach.
It wasn't nearly as bad as I expected! And while I was warm all over and my stomach burned a little more when the fluid first hit that spot, the pain quickly diminished. Within minutes, I felt better than I had the day before, and as the day wore on, I continued to feel even better.
Anyway, I've repeated this every day now for the past week, and by day 3 the burning pain in my stomach was COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY GONE, even first thing in the morning. I'm continuing the regimen for therapeutic and preventive purposes, just to see if it cures my allergies and other problems. I'll probably reduce the daily dosage now that the stomach problem has subsided, but I'm a believer! And I'm a lifelong advocate of that little red pepper...this is news worth sharing!
Thank God for natural remedies."Replies
[YEA] 01/05/2010: Ann from Deer Park, Wa replies: "Thank you Lisa, for the information. I was having terrible pain after meals and didn't know the cause. Still don't know the cause, but the cayenne has stopped the pain and my entire system seems to be working much better. This simple treatment saved me a lot of time, money and the need for expensive drugs that seldom work well."
03/07/2011: Pratt from Manchester, Ct replies: "Hello Lisa ,
Glad you are feeling well. I have mild irriatation in my stomach and have had some bleeding.. Just wondering apart from taking the cayenne tea what was your diet during the healing period, if you can share that will be great - Pratt"
[YEA] 02/15/2012: Dana from Atlanta, Ga replies: "I took Lisa's advice and used Cayenne for my ulcer. I had been taking NSAIDS for pain due to a car accident and unfortunately took one too many. Although I wasn't formally diagnosed by a doctor, when I awoke with that burning pain in my stomach at 2am, I knew exactly what it was.
I went straight to EC and found some great suggestions. I took the cayenne in warm water every morning, drank it just like a tea. It worked wonders. I also ate fresh avacado, almost daily. Everyday, the pain subsided less and less and in about than 2 weeks the pain was completely gone. The burning occurs when the Hydrochloric Acid of the stomach touches the ulcerated area. I also made sure I kept some bread or crackers on me, to constantly keep something in my stomach (every two hours or so).
Not being able to sleep at night for a few weeks was not fun. No more NSAIDS for me.... only natural remedies."
[YEA] 08/12/2012: Ben from Odessa, Missouri replies: "I have had the most terrible experience the last 6 month, with what I believe is an ulcer. Everytime I ate anything I had terrible pain. I really thought the worst. In desperation I was praying for G-d to heal me and after I read the story about how Hezekiah prayed to be healed and then Isaiah the prophet was told by G-d to put on a fig poultice, I realized that maybe the answer was already here. I looked on the internet and found herballegacy and read about ulcers. I decided to try Cayenne, in minutes I felt better. I think the answers to all diseases are probably right under our noses."
02/08/2013: Dr Love from Balerno,edinburgh,, Bonnie Scotland. replies: "As for above... google - ancient healing secrets or healing secrets of the ancients
olives, extra virgin olive oil, cayenne pepper, manuka honey, bannanas and semi-skin milk, balsamic vinegar, garlic, red onions, fruit."
[YEA] 09/20/2009: Josh from Daytona Beach, Florida: "I was suffering from ulcers for 2 years and couldnt find relief. I was prescribed carafate which covers the ulcer in an attempt to promote healing. With little success I tried herbal remedies and a healthy diet, eating natural foods, such as fruits, vegtables, and lean meats. I discovered extra virgin coconut oil and began taking 3 Tbls orally, within days I began to feel much better! Though ive read books that claim that coconut oil can cure ulcers alone I think it was a combination of the medication and good diet along with the coconut oil that cured my ulcer. If you are or ever do suffer the pain of an ulcer I strongly recomend the use of coconut oil, its a life saver!"
[YEA] 05/29/2008: WT from Spartanburg, SC: "I've always been a fan of natural remedies since childhood. I discovered coconut oil years ago while looking for a vinegar and oil recipe. We've always used RBD (refined, bleached, deoderized) and now use the Luanna brand found in Wal-Mart. A couple years ago I had increasing stomach pain over a several week period. It started out like hunger pains and got progressively worse. It got to the point that it wouldn't go away even after eating. I figured it must be an ulcer.
I had read that coconut oil killed the ulcer causing bacteria. I got on the internet and researched the dosage and began taking a tablespoon in the morning and another at night.
After three days or so the pain was gone and I stopped taking it. A few weeks later the pain came back. I figured if you take antibiotics for 7-10 days I should probably do the same with the coconut oil. Again the pain left in three days or so but I kept taking it for a week. That's been probably three years or so. I also try and eat fried eggs once every weekend just for good health.
PS: an arterial ultrasound on my carotid arteries, taken last year after about 8 years consuming the stuff, showed no evidence of plaque buildup.
I've smoked up to 2 packs a day until quitting 2 years ago and have never taken cholesterol meds. I'm 45 and my dad was 90% blocked by age 61.nI also take 4+ Grams of cheap ascorbic acid vitamin C almost daily."
Colloidal Silver, Aloe Vera, Dgl
[YEA] 09/27/2011: David T from Greenville, Sc: "I have used a three part formula for years to heal my own "start up" stomach ulcers; always successful and have recommended the same at least twenty times with universal success. The latest success was a friend who happens to be a physician. She often makes fun of my "remedies" and attributes my various concoctions to my distant Cherokee heritage rather than good science. But the theory behind each element is real.
Assume for a moment that the ulcer's generation is often due to irritation caused by a virus or bacteria.
Then if that is so, we must have a virucide and so I use colloidal silver as the first ingredient. Therefore, take on an empty stomach about a quarter of a cup of colloidal silver in the morning and at night. Silver, of course, kills both virus and bacteria as well as fungi.
Second, we need a burn healer, because the ulcer is effectively an unhealed burn, and so use liquid aloe vera. Use a strong form. Take a quarter of a cup on an empty stomach ten minutes after you have taken the silver.
This formula worked for many years but one of my gurus told me to add DGL which is a derivative of licorice. It often comes in chewable form which I recommend. The DGL apparently also acts to heal the wound. This comes last. Take two morning and evening before bed after the silver and aloe.
This three part formula should be used for a month. When you feel that the ulcer is no longer hurting you, you can cut the formula in half for an additional month. This is to just make sure the ulcer is completely healed.
As far as diet goes, you must get completely off of all coffee (even de-caff because it too is acidic), elimination of acidic foods, like peppers and tomatos... for at least a month.
Your ulcer may not have originated from a virus or bacteria, but since you do not know, we must assume that at the heart of the irritation is a "bug."
You could also add natural vitamin E as a wound healer... Not synthetic E. Natural E will say on the labeling, "d-alpha tocopherol" while synthetic will say, "dl-alpha tocopherol"... the extra "l" after the "d" is all the difference! Almost every health food store will only sell the natural."
Cranberry Juice, Unsweetened
[YEA] 11/05/2009: Liz from Seattle, Wa.: "Am 70 and have acid reflux for years. Got herbs from the Chinese doc and things are better. If you think that you might have ulcers, cranberry juice is great. I drink it with soda water to make it more palatable - no sugar. Find that sugar really starts the acid reflux. As long as I avoid it, I'm good. Also Health food stores have some good digestion teas that help."
Diatomaceous Earth, Clay, Wheatgrass
[YEA] 01/20/2010: Christine from Bronx, New York: "stomache ulcer
I am so amazed by the fact that , for years i have gone to the doctor for a terrible stmache ulcer that i had. I was diagnosed at the age of 25.

Anyway, i was prescribe on numerous occasions, prevacid and prevpac.The prev pac cause me to get a yeast infection and bacteria vaginoisis that would not go away no matter what. finally, after years of suffering and research, i decided i was going to treat myself. I bought Diatomaceous earth, Clay (Terramin), and powdered wheatgrass. I mixed the diatomaceous earth together, half and half. The wheat grass did not taste so hot so i bought empty capsules and stuffed the wheatgrass in. Every morning before i eat i would drink a tablespoon full of my DE and clay mixture in an 8 ounce glass of water. I also at the same time take 4 of the wheatgrass capsules. I do this every morning and everynight before bed. within 2 week the pain in my stomache was gone. my yeast infection disappeared. the horrible smell caused by the bacteral vaginoisis disaapeared with only a small amount of discharge remaining.

[SIDE EFFECTS] 07/16/2013: Carmel from Clacton On Sea, England: "I was feeling quite well until I had two cloves of raw garlic crushed up. It made my stomach feel awful and it never felt right since.

07/17/2013: Timh from Louisville, Ky, USA replies: "Carmel: DGL and the herb Comfrey are very good for healing the gut. Some digestive enzymes and probiotics would also help. Kefir, Kraut, and Yogurt are beneficial. Acid reducing medications can help but I wouldn't advise anything over 1 or maybe 2 months."
