I suffered on and off from severe stomach pain. In the past chamomille tea and mastic gum got quickly rid of it. Last winter it got worse and the above remedies did not help anymore. I tried drinking raw cabbage juice for 7 days and that helped a lot. But I still had occasional flare-ups. I tried pine nut oil and that helped to cure it completely.
I had both for decades and cured BOTH OVERNIGHT; this is how.
I took Pro-Biotics (acidopholis, lactobacilicus etc) you must get from vitamin store and take LIVE CULTURE COUNTS over 100 billion daily. If it works for u then keep it up for a week and anytime you need to take antibiotics (be sure to separate the times by 3 hrs or they will counteract each other)
I have never had intestinal problems until the last several months. My sister swore by the pysillium husk and I had it in my cabinet for months. I started having indigestion, bloating and gas. I looked like I was pregnant! A week ago, my sister convinced me to try it. Wow! What a huge difference it has made already. I use the single sugar free koolaids and put one teaspoon of the pysillium and shake it. I drink the whole thing and follow with another 8 oz of water. I have used it once and sometimes twice a day. I have noticed if I take it 30 minutes before a meal, I get full quicker. My plan is to increase to 3 times a day for awhile and see if I notice any more fat loss in my stomach. Mixing it with the koolaid packets (I actually use a healthy brand of the mixers) doesn't make it taste bad at all. I also drink water throughout the day. Try it! BTW, I am 56 years old.
Purple cabbage juice is amazing and almost immediate in its ability to reduce acid. I had a peptic ulcer and was very sick. Purple cabbage juice worked better than the prescribed medications. I used a juicer and sometimes mixed carrots or spinach in the juice.
My prayers go out to Ted I wish and hope he makes a full recovery, in my mind he is a great man, and we need him in this world, get well Ted please, I have had upper GI distress for sometime now, it comes with intense bloating feeling like I am going to explode after eating, and needed to burp but could not..One of the remedies I have tried with some success is Sauerkraut I make my own with red cabbage and 1 or 2 tablespoons of Himalayan Salt so I know what it contains. I use Ginger ale to get me to burp, this works to relieve the symptoms. Sometimes I have to use Pepcid I hate to use it but it works for me. But what I would really like to know is what the underlying cause is and can it be cured. Anyone have any thoughts on this.
Use of tomato for gastritis problems:
My husband had severe problems with his gastrointestinal system. Months and months of seeing doctors and trying all kinds of conventional medicines (drugs). He took a business trip to Antigua Guatemala and after one working session he was in such pain that he went to the bar to have something to drink. The bartender prepared him a coctail of pure tomato juice with pure lemon juice. He drank it and inmediately afterwards he felt the relieve and freshnesh in his stomach. He kept drinking glasses of the same juice for the time he was at that convention. When he got back he was a different person, he could sleep without pain and kept drining tomato juice with lemon juice for a while until he felt completely cured. We have since then used the same remedy with our daughter who started suffering from gastritis at College and the results are the same! The amount is 3/4 of tomato juice with 1/4 of lemon juice.
