Thank you for that interesting feed-back.

Would you kindly tell me what Dgl Licorice is please?

We are unfamiliar with many of the acronyms used on this Site.



EC: DGL - Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice 

Manuka Honey, Amaranth Tea

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.

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 : )

Myofunctional Therapy

My daughter had chronic stomach pains and 1 tsp of Apple Cider Vinegar helped her most mornings. But she still had pains at night. The doctors couldn't find anything wrong and one even suggested we look into removing her gall bladder to get rid of her pain. We didn't do that! After an endless search we found out she had a slight tongue tie that led to a reverse swallow. With a reverse or tongue-thrust swallow, she was gulping a little bit of air each time she swallowed and that led to chemical changes in her stomach acid. A myofunctional therapist helped her to learn to swallow right and her mysterious stomach aches went away. She's sleeping better and waking more rested

You can make your own brown sugar. It is just sugar with molasses mixed with your mixer. That way you know what the quality is.

Dgl Licorice

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.

Chamomile Tea

For tummy cramps (or the runs) Chamomile tea works wonders- it stops the spasms in your tummy that cause so much pain. Double bag it for extreem measures... If you know what I mean. Roman Chamomile essential oil also works well (just rub it on your tummy). - Do not use the Roman Chamomile for too long or it will stop your bowels. Please note that if you have the runs, your body is telling you that you need to get rid of whatever is inside of you, so do no clog it up too much.

I have also found (from personal experience- with in 30 minutes) that homeopathic ARSENICUM ALBUM works very well for food poisoning (vomiting and the runs), also make sure to take some probiotics to get the good bacteria back.

take care of yourself, KT

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.

Black Tea

Hi, first and foremost i would like to thank EC, am so greatful for this website, it's such a blessing! Black tea has always been my remedy for stomachach and menstrual cramps. One just needs to boil a cup of water, add tea bag and take it hot (not very hot though) with no sugar (sour but helps) or add 1 tsp of honey if you cannot stand the taste. This will solve your stomach problems!

For stomache ache, reflux, or overfullness, chew or swallow the sticky black seeds of green cardamom pods (breack the fiberous shell by popping between the teeth). Cardamom is a popular spice in Indian and Southeast Asian cooking, and you can find then at Wholefoods in the bulk spice area. I prefer chewing the seeds -- they have a menthol-type flavor -- others who find the taste strong can swallow the seeds like a pill. Without doubt, this is the best stomach ache remedy I have ever found. Seriously, try it -- within minutes you will forget you even had an upset stomache!

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.

Dgl Licorice

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.

Baking Soda

Regarding Baking Soda and Stomach Bugs: I used a teaspoon or less in water for my kids. But, this worked well for them this past winter when the stomach bug was going around. Sometimes, they burped after the baking soda. Sometimes they vomited within minutes. But, either way, they felt much better.

I think my symptoms are/were caused by a stomach bug. I drank the recommended 1 Tbsp of baking soda with water (3/4 cup cold, tasted like very salty alka seltzer) within minutes I burped INSTENSELY several times. I will try eating an apple later tonight to help. I do feel much 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!!
