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 : )

Two days ago, I was having sharp pains in my abdominal. I swollowed a whole clove with cranberry juice and the pain went away.

Thank you for this suggestion! I tried a garlic pill for a nasty case of indigestion based on your recommendation, and it worked fast. Less than a half-hour after I'd taken the garlic capsule, I started feeling relief. If I had to take a guess, I'd wager that the garlic sped up the process of eliminating the toxin that was causing the discomfort. Thanks again for this!

I just wanted to say this worked great. My cousin had a stomach ache for days. She had tried tums and other over the counter stomach aides and they did nothing. I read this on here about the garlic and had her eat a clove. About 15-20 minutes later, the pain had subsided quite a bit. I spoke with her today and she said that she is free of any pain now. Thank you for the great advice!

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?

The cardiologist took my husband off Lipitor, Plavix and Digoxin. He stopped them as of yesterday. The abdominal pains are gone! We don't know if it was the Lipitor or which one was wreaking havoc with his gut. All we know is that is feeling the best he has felt in months! Thanks, everyone, for your input and help!


Gluten Free Diet

Posted by Jessie (New York City, New York) on 02/28/2012

Regarding gluten allergies or those of you with chronic stomach pain or stomach issues. PLEASE READ! Very important!

Ask your doctor for a Celiac's panel as the official term for gluten allergy is Celiac's disease. It's a blood test but you have to have been eating a gluten FULL diet for the test to be accurate. And if you have Celiac's you have to COMPLETELY cut out all gluten for good!

My husband's grandfather has stomach cancer from not avoiding gluten despite his allergy. He didn't find out he had a gluten allergy til after he was diagnosed with cancer. After researching, I found numerous studies on this. Most prominently, an 11 year study that followed 1, 982 patients from 20 G. I centers in Germany diagnosed with Celiacs Disease. Those who did not follow a gluten free diet had a 200 times greater chance of gastrointestinal cancers and lymphoma than those who followed a gluten free diet. The chances increased with age.

In europe, 1 in 300 are diagnosed with a gluten allergy (aka Celiacs Disease) and in Italy, all children are required to be screened for it automatically as toddlers. In the U.S. only 1 in 3000 are diagnosed SIMPLY because we don't screen for it or recognize it as a possible cause for chronic stomach issues. And since it's hereditary and you don't always present symptoms, if a family member tests positive, have ALL family members tested. My husband's 76 year old Grandfather (with stomach cancer)had 2 siblings who died from stomach cancer. They figured it was the cancer that was hereditary. No. It was the gluten allergy that was. I also know that one of my Dr's medical assistants (was in her 60's) recently died 3 months after being diagnosed with lymphoma. During her autopsy they discovered she had a gluten allergy she never knew about. It's clinically proven that Lymphoma is one of the cancers caused by eating gluten when you're allergic to it. Put your health in good hands... Your own. Get tested!

Thanks for this post! I've had a lot of stomach noises lately, among other ailments including headaches. It appears ACV is good just about everything, so I mixed 1/2 TBSP in 6oz of water and just took a few sips. The stomach noises stopped right away, but I kept clearing my throat all night, got horrible heartburn and woke up with my stomach burning like crazy. I'm going to see my doctor today, so I'll ask him to do a celiac panel. My Mom died of lymphoma - B cell, when she was 84. She didn't have stomach issues until a few months before passing. She started getting sick in Oct and passed 3 mo later. Any ideas to help the stomach burning?

I personally say nay on ACV, due to my reaction, but I'm a redhead and hypersensitive to everything! A doctor once told me I'm just one big recessive gene:-)

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.

I used pure PINK GRAPEFRUIT for the same purposes, an upset stomach, and it worked wonders too! I also chewed the seeds because grapefruit juice extract is made from the pulp and the seeds.

Hi, Mindy,

I'm French speaking but I learned English at school and can communiicate here. But I never understand what your acronyms mean. What mean ACV, GFSE.

I know that for Englis people, "gut" is a rough term/ Not in French. So, it's sometimes difficult for me to see if you all speak about stomach of about gut. Wich word do you use for "gut"? "Belly"?

Manuka honey works great for me! Its only the relief pretty much at times and I could feel it healing my stomach. It just sucks its so pricey so it can be a little tough for me to consistently get it and I like the more expensive stronger one. This is the only thing that helps as well as I have had flowering globe amaranth tea which made a big help. The only thing is it came with a tea set and it is a pretty hard tea to find but it really helped my stomach a ton! I was able to get things done today with out the irritating pain I usually deal with. but ill be ok once I get my manuka honey back, it helps me to digest protein easier.

Angina, Back and Right Side Abdominal Pain

I have been having severe back pain, right hand side abdominal pain, and left side breast pain for years now. I got to know about menthol crystals recently and decided to use a towel dipped in the hot menthol crystal water. I first did it on my abdomen and back as I was afraid to try on the heart area.

The pain went away immediately. That was over a month ago and it hasn't come back.

The pain in my heart area has been persistent and this evening I decided to treat it with the menthol crystal hot water remedy. Guys, it worked! Immediate relief from pain. Am so elated and wish everyone who tries this remedy success and healing.

Stomach Ache Cures: I have found that a simple home rememdy i have been using for years works greatly and I would like to share it with everyone. MINT works great to relieve the pain. Chewing minty gum, eating a peppermint patty, or anything with a minty flavor will help the pain decrease significantly.

Hi I have a great remedy for stomach ache even for babies although a bit of sugar is required for them to drink it. Its mint tea. It needs to be diluted with water and just luke warm for babies of course. Adults is can be as hot as you like. Its amazing how quickly the stomach ache leaves when I drink it. Also another great remedy for me is to eat an apple when I get heartburn and prune juice for constipation. Also I have begun to use aloe for my skin and its helped it look so smooth. Hope this helps people feel a bit better naturally.

I use peppermint tea and candied ginger for my stomach aches. I get daily pain due to IBS. These alternative remedies worked 10x better than the Rx meds the Dr's gave me. Ginger helps relieve nausea and will aid in digestion. Peppermint tea works to soothe a sour stomach.

My family is Greek Cypriot and they use herbal medicine alot. My favorite is Mint Tea for stomach ache. If you have a bad stomach ache, boil some drinking water along with dried mint leaves and add some sugar or honey for taste. Make it in the same way you boil regular tea. Strain the tea leaves and drink it as warm as you can. It usually works on contact. I even used this for my son when he was a baby and had colic...not too hot, though.
