Non-alcoholic beer remedy

Years ago I began to drink large amounts of fruit or vegetable juices like grape or V-8 or tomato juice, but the acid content eventually began to irritate my bowels. At one point my body could no longer tolerate those juices getting severe intestinal pains if I took any amount.

Then I began drinking juices together with non-alcoholic beer and found that, amazingly, I could drink unlimited amounts of juices that way without any problem whatsoever. I don't know what it is about beer that mitigates the effects of the acid in juices but I have been mixing the two and drinking them for many years now with no ill effects whatsoever. In fact, I find the taste of the combination to be superior to the taste of either one alone. The best way to do it is to mix the juice together (maybe about 25% to 50% beer) but they can be taken separately too.

Hi there! I read some of your problem, well, indeed, I have abdominal pain also and it has been aching for seven years and I have undergone several treatment and medicines but still those procedures which is really "costly" didn't work for me. what worst is one of my physicians whom I asked for other opinion adviced me to prevent my favorite foods that is harmful to my stomach system and that I should prevent of having full stomach.I was really on my dilema and eager to find solution for this so I tried to take "oatmeal" an instant one and though I don't really like the taste and texture of it, I drink it every morning with an empty stomach before breakfast. I used it as "hot beverage" in a half glass of hot water, eneough to dissolve the instant oatmeal. You can also try to eat it as porridge but your eating habit will be change because of lightweight food in your stomach so better you take the oatmeal as hot beverage, not thick but just eneought to drink it. Your acidity will also lessen and soon will dissapear plus you'll gain other benefit from it. I don't also prevent taking my antiallergy and avoiding my favorite foods just because of my stomach condition....I hope it somehow help you out there because the only way to cure our illness is to find remedy and it work for me... I am now free from acidity, and stomach pain...

Warning

You might want to watch the oatmeal. I have had the pinching in the sides, on both sides, high and low, for most of my life. I finally got really tired of it and started questioning my drs. About a year ago. I wanted to make sure there was nothing wrong with me. So much that I had been told through out my life in way of pain had ended up as being major, (Heart area pain ended up being large hole in my heart, being found after stroke at age 40). So I started the quest and didn't let the Drs. say relax. I finally had a colonoscopy to find I had kinks in my colon, and really needed to stop all fiber, and drink the Mi_____x once a day because of how kinked up I was. He was shocked because it was so difficult to do the colonoscopy. My pain was from not emptying properly. I thought I was, but guess I wasn't. Now I don't do it like I'm told to. And the other day, I forgot and for two days ate oatmeal. I ended up writhing in pain on the floor of Hobby Lobby. The pain didn't subside for 10-15 min. My husband, an EMT was so worried, but I had realized what I had done. I went home and started a double dose, for 2 days, and then single dose for 2. I thinks I'll try 1/2 dose every day. It really helps. But do get checked out to make sure it is the problem. And people, take care of yourselves!

Milled Flax Seed is my daily hero for Colon health; it provides a gentle yet strong purge that keeps those inner layers clean. I also use Aloe Vera softgels every other day to purge infection, which from my personal experience, Flax cannot.

Am Robert, have been surfering from stomach aches for so long indeed but with the use of ginger cut into into water with oats cooking did help me a lot and suggest any one with same conditions to try same.

Heart burns too, olive oil one table spoon a day works so good too plus using lemon juice scrab on the chest twice daily is good too.

For teens and adults, I give 1-2 peppermint and 1-2 ginger pills based on the size of the person and the severity of the pain. It works.

For a child that can't swallow pills or doesn't like the taste of ginger and peppermint teas, I give Hylands #10 homeopathic pills which are very tiny and dissolve almost instantly in the mouth with no bad taste. Both my younger children are prone to stomachaches and they both swear by these pills. I don`t know if it is just a placebo effect or if there really is something to homeopathy, but for my children these do work for general stomachaches, there are no side effects, and I feel they are safe for young children. I have never had any problems, there's no choking hazards because they are so small and dissolve so quickly, and my children take these willingly.

Peppermint Oil for Stomach Pain

Thank god for this remedy -- it worked. I happened to have organic aromatherapy peppermint oil: 3 drops in half a cup of water chased with a little more, and within 5 minutes lots of gurgling began, and I am now, about an hour later and a visit to the john, pain free.

The only thing I've ever used for stomach aches or consequences of eating something I shouldn't have, was 3 drops of peppermint oil in a glass of water, and drink it down. Its always amazed me how fast that works. It seems to put at ease a sour stomach very quickly.

I was reading an article that I stumbled across of a Canadian farmer who would give his cattle raspberries when they had stomach problems with great success when ever the tourists cought a sickness bug the local doc would suggest they take raspberries or the juice or cordial. My 11 month old grandaughter had just started a nasty 24 hour sickness bug I went and bought some raspberries and gave her a few. The sickness stopped from then on. I was amazed. Evidently even the really nasty sickness bugs can be killed with raspberries. What a great site earth clinic is, thank you to all.

Yes, raspberry cordial is a must-pack for Aussie tourists going to Bali to stave off the dreaded 'Bali Belly'! Just a cap a day seems to stave it off. Farmers use it over here with the livestock, too. I find colloidal silver brilliant for stomach bugs - they go in about an hour!

I hope that this will help others experiencing this problem and similar.

Decades ago, I experienced routine bouts of reflux and abdominal pain. GP's dismissed this as an eating disorder, due to the weight gain program I was on to build muscle with weight training. Similarly to yourselves, however, I wound up reading a book by a naturopath explaining that the medical focus on recommending limiting salt intake is having extremely harmful effects on health. The piece which caught my attention was when he detailed that the body requires salt to produce the hydrochloric acid in our stomachs.

Contrary to common belief, hydrochloric acid only commences the stomachs digestive process. Its real significance is that a sufficient amount of it is necessary to trigger the release of digestive enzymes required to complete the job of digestion.

Apple cider vinegar can help to stimulate the production/release of hydrochloric acid but your body really requires a sufficient supply of the ingredients needed to produce it.

For stomach aches, I tried the ACV with water before. It did help for the situation but it didn't cure it for long. Two months ago, I found a new method from a book. It is a Korean method. Separation of beverages and foods will do the trick for most disease. No drink two hours before and after and during the meal. So the stomach works on its full strength for the food that the stomach fulid is not being diluted by drink. I tried two months ago. I had stomachache for two days at that time. Since the first day I tried the separation method, I haven't had stomachache. It works really well. I don't need to drink or eat anything. It also cured my heartburn.

Strawberries for Stomach Pain and/or Gas

For any kind of stomach ache, gas pain, heart burn or stomach upset of any kind, I eat 4-6 frozen strawberries and the discomfort is gone instantly. This remedy has worked 100% of the time for me for many years. It has also worked 100% of the time for everyone I have told. My mother is 89 and takes several medications and supplements and sometimes gets terrible stomach pains and gas. She ate 5 frozen strawberries and by the time she ate the last one her pain and gas had disappeared. She is a devout skeptic and was amazed at the results.

I have tried this with many different varieties of strawberries and they all work. My favorite here in southwest Michigan is called Early Glow and we freeze about 60 qt. every year. Just hull the "caps", rinse in water, let drain in a colander and put into whatever size plastic freezer bag you prefer. Even if they are out of season in your area and you have to pay a higher price at a super market, get at least one qt. to keep in the freezer. When you get a stomach ache eat 4-6 of them and your pain should disappear.

I hope this helps you stop wasting money on expensive, super hyped, over the counter upset stomach chemicals that in my opinion just do not work and always made me feel worse.

Best Wishes For A Peaceful Future, Don

I use every time when I have stomach ache this wonderful well known Swedish Bitters. I usually purchase the dry herbs in a package and follow the direction on the package for the first time and first bottle, but for the next bottle I keep it much longer(a few month in alcohol).I pour contents of dry herb into alcohol in the jar and keep it 8 days for the 1st batch, but for the next one up to 6 month, then screen it through cheesecloth.I take 1 teaspoon of this herb mixture and dilute in 1 cup of water and drink it right away.Pain stop also immediately. I purchase the herb in health food store.Thanks.

For stomach pain and issues, if you don't have Apple Cider Vinegar, you can just drink water 1/2 hour before eating prepares the body to pour on the acid that breaks down the food, and add a bit of salt to your diet and get similar results... Read the book Your body's many cries for water by Dr. Batmanghelidj.

For gallbladder issues and problems digesting fats, use betafood. For liver issues use coconut oil in your diet. Add magnesium to your diet for muscle health that affects digestion and elimination and add probiotics.

I don't often get stomach aches, but when I do, I take wormwood. It also treats and prevents nausea, so I'll take wormwood if I'm anticipating nausea as well (like from certain supplements). It is absolutely foul tasting, so if you plan on taking this for when you get sick, you might want to familiarize yourself with the taste first. That said, there really is nothing better for digestive issues.

You can take it as either a tea or a tincture. You can take the tincture by putting a dropperful in a small glass of water. For the tea, I use one teaspoon in one cup of hot water and steep for five minutes. When I have a stomach ache, I won't bother bringing the water to boil since I want to drink it as soon as possible.
