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
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...

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.

I USE RED WINE VINEGAR FOR STOMACH PROBLEM AND IT WORKS GREAT. I NEVER USED APPLE CIDER VINIGAR.
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.

I take 1 tea spoon of that mixture and mix with 2/3 glass of water and drink it.pain stops right away. If anyone find the solution to stop the bile coming to my throat, or find a way to straighten the valve, please let me know..Thank you
Take a teaspoon or two of swedish bitters shortly after you eat.
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.
