Mix 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (not baking powder) into a glass of water, add 1 heaping teaspoon psillium fiber, stir up real good, drink immediately. Then drink another glass of plain water.

On an empty stomach: cover and steep in water 1 teaspoon Chamomile tea and 1 teaspoon Catnip tea together, drink when cool enough, wait an hour, then drink milk/soy milk.

With meals (preferably salad) 2 teaspoon Swedish Bitters mixed into a glass of water, 2 times a day as needed.

Quit drinking soda, coffee, green and black tea, cocoa, don't eat chocolate, gluten (such as in wheat, barley, rhy, somtimes oats), dairy, sugar.

On an empty stomach: mix into hot/warm soy milk 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon clove powder, drink (you can add cinnamon, cocoa powder or coffee too, if you like). Drink lots of water. Eat several fresh oranges. Very strong, very dehydrating, do it when you have the day off. Don't go to bed until much later.

Fast on green juices and fresh fruit. Parsley, cilantro, bok choy, fennel.

Consider hepatitis, IBS, celiac, hernia.

Gluten free oatmeal, 2 tablespoons raw organic coconut oil, 1 teaspoon organic cinnamon. Mix and eat on empty stomach. Drink lots of water.

Dice and lightly cook a large onion in 1 tablespoon safflower oil, it should still have some of the bite to it, eat the entire thing on an empty stomach.

Soy is highly estrogenic as well as having other issues, please look into using another milk such as almond if you can't drink dairy

Slippery elm added to those suggestions is good. It's easier to take in capsule form than the powder in liquid. Very soothing. So is peppermint tea and of course Swedish bitters which is good for digestion, haemorrhoids, fibroid tumours and just for general stamina and immune system.

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.


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.

Lisa, I have been using DGL and sometimes regular Licorice for digestive healing for yrs, but the strength isn't enough. Now I chew 2 tabs DGL and add 1/2 spoon Allantoin dissolved and swallowed. This is necessary only once a day for a few days and you're good for a long while. Manufacturers should include Allantoin to their DGL for that extra needed healing power.

To TIMH from Louisville - Why on earth would you take Allantoin internally for anything? I think you must mean aloe!!! Allantoin is a chemical compound used in skin care, toothpaste etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allantoin


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

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.

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.


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.


Baking Soda

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.

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!


Non-Alcoholic Beer

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.

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.

I had a stomach virus and after 3 nights/days of diarrhea and stomach pain, I tried some over the counter drugs with no results. I was so desperate that I came across your website and I read the article on cinnamon tea. So I immediately tried it and it work about 3 hours after. So I continue to drink this tea for a few days and now I am perfect. Thanks for your information.


Bitters

Cure Gas Fast Angostura bitters remedy... I'm a night club dj. On several occasions I've gotten terrible stomach pain just before a gig at a bar. When I say terrible stomach pain, I mean eye watering, agonizing pain that comes in waves. Sometimes it feels like my stomach is in a knot and other times like it's being ripped apart. I've asked bartenders what I should drink. A few have suggested bitters. I'm not sure if this is the same as Angostura bitters, but it's the only thing I remember working. Generally after drinking something with bitters, my pain goes away in an hour or so. Without the bitters, I'm in pain all night and sometimes for a day or two after.

You've got ulcers. I had them. If you smoke & drink, you have to quit or it will worsen and you won't last very long. Sorry. Raw honey will help, as will lower stress (if possible).
