I had a stomach virus and after 3 nights/days of diarrhea and stomach pain, I tried some over the counter drugs with no results. I was so desperate that I came across your website and I read the article on cinnamon tea. So I immediately tried it and it work about 3 hours after. So I continue to drink this tea for a few days and now I am perfect. Thanks for your information.

For a month I had abdominal pain that I thought might be a kidney stone. I tried a number of things to make it better, and finally had a urogram done, which came back normal. At last I figured out what was causing the pain: a dirty coffee maker!! I went out and bought a new Mr. Coffee and the pain is completely gone.
I hope this helps someone!

I was diagnosed with abdominal inflammation. This was in the area of the gall bladder. I tried DGL(Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice). In DGL, the glycyrrhizin compound-associated with high blood pressure-has been removed. I used the chewable kind. Dosage: two tablets when I started to have discomfort on my right side. After many years of having this condition, I have been cured with this product.
EC: Agreed, DGL is a great supplement. If you can't find it in your area of the world, try licorice root tea.

I've had ulcers in the past and tried prescription medications that did help, but I don't always want to go to the doctor when they flare up. I have a flare up 1-2x a year.
DGL licorice in chewable form will get rid of stomach pain in around 10 minutes. It's a little hard to get past the taste/texture of the chewables but it is the best thing out there. We're talking about pain that will stop me in my tracks and this stuff works. I take 1-2 chewables at a time and sometimes need to take throughout the day.

My Doctors kept giving me acid reducers when I needed a laxative. Now I'm on an 80/10/10 diet and when I eat out of proportion I use a laxitive. No more pain, no mor sick belly.

The best remedy I have found for indigestion, acid regurge, GERD, flatulence is elimination of all bleached flour products in the foods you eat - I find I can eat l00% whole grain bread without problems (usually cures most people's constipation problems also). I don't know what chemicals? are used in the bleaching process, but apparently that is where the problem comes from. However, you must really work at getting bleached flour out of your diet, as many pastas are made with bleached flour, many breads say whole wheat but read the ingredients and you'll find that most start off with bleached flour unless the label reads l00% whole grain. Most gravies, dips, sauces, etc. use the cheapest source of thickening agent - bleached flour. So try it and see if it works for you. It's nice having a "cast iron stomach" which has no problems with cayenne pepper, jalapeno peppers, and all that spicy stuff I used to blame my stomach problems on before I lucked up and stumbled upon the real cause of them.

I went vegan for a year to try to cure sinusitis - it did not work, but chronic gut pain I'd had for years vanished inside 3 weeks, as it did for my wife also.
We went back to being omnivores after that year, because we were getting "run down". These days, we can eat meat, except no chicken. Even our own fresh, organic chicken meat will give us bad abdominal pain which can last weeks. Why chicken, I don't know. Google "chicken and stomach pain" and you will find its fairly common. Since I figured this out, I was muscle-tested for a very long list of foods - chicken came up as bad for me. I am blood-type B, and not supposed to eat chicken according to Dr d'Adamo, but my wife is type O and it gets her too.

Trigonella foenum-graecum (Fenugreek) never failed to help me when I felt sick to my stomach. Also proved successful when I gave it to family and friends. Usually works in about 30 mins.
- Take about 2 tablespoons of seeds (I use whole seeds) and place it in a cup.
- Boil water and slowly pour it over the seeds.
- Leave for about 15 mins to rest under a cover to omit important essential substances to evaporate.
- Slowly sip the 'tea' and at the end eat the seeds as well - by then they should be soft enough.
Small inconvenience: you will smell like a chicken soup during next 2 days. This is due to strong flavours, that this seeds have inside. How ever the nice calming effect on your body is worth it I guess : )

My husband had a massive heart attack last year. He is on many heart meds. He had his gall bladder removed a couple months ago and is having terrible abdominal pain that travels up his chest and esophagus. Doc does not know what it is. Any ideas/cures?

I was so impressed how quickly the Grapefruit Seed Extract soothed my aching stomach. I think I ate some bad food(fish) earlier in the day and had been ailing for a few hours. I tried the GFSE we had and within 15 minutes it felt better.

Grapefruit seed extract is the very best for a stomach ache 5 to 6 drops in a cup of water. It works also if you swallowed some bad water while swimming or drank some bad water while traveling in a different country. It has a very bitter taste. helps kill the germs and bugs. My child after throwing up and trying many different things was able to go to sleep and rest without pain. It has worked even for my friends!!

Just wanted to add grapefruit seed extract (GFSE) to your list of remedies for stomach aches. I read how bitters have been used as digestive aids for centuries, especially in Europe. The only "bitter" I had around my house was GFSE which I use to disinfect my produce. (GFSE is a powerful germ killer: bacteria,virus, fungus, Candida, etc.) Well I put 5-6 drops in a glass of water and chugged it down fast, and within 10 minutes my stomach ache was gone!!! I drank this bitter water 3x that day and noticed how CLEAR my mind became - another benefit. I had tried other remedies like ACV, ginger, mint tea, but GFSE worked the FASTEST for me. So give it a try. There are other numerous good uses for GFSE which you can learn about on the internet.
