lDrink a mug of chamomile tea (Matricaria recutita). The essential oils in this herb ease muscle spasms in your gastrointestinal tract and may also decrease your body's production of pepsin, a digestive enzyme that exacerbates indigestion. It is better to brew your tea using loose chamomile flowers than the less-potent tea bags. Steep one to two teaspoons of the dried flowers in boiling hot water for 20 minutes, strain, and sip slowly. For even better results, mix the chamomile tea with yerbabuena tea.
lHave an indigestion dessert after your meal:
lChamomile, rosemary and honey. Make chamomile tea, add a bit of rosemary, sweeten with honey and drink one cup in the morning and at night.
lCaraway or coriander seeds. Brew one teaspoon coriander or caraway seeds in one cup of boiling water. Strain to remove the seeds, then drink the tea.
lOregano. Boil water and add oregano. Let steep for two or more minutes then let cool to desirable level. Strain and then drink two cups of the liquid per day. Discontinue if there is no improvement after two days.
lManzanilla tea with honey. Make a cup of manzanilla tea and sweeten with honey.
l Cumin, mint and water. Bring two cups of water to a boil, add four branches of mint and boil for two minutes, then add 1/8 teaspoon of cumin and boil an additional two minutes. Drink while still warm. You may sweeten with honey, sugar or Stevia.
l Carrot juice, raw potato and sprig of celery. For excess sour stomach or heartburn (excess stomach acid), mix ½ glass of carrot juice with half a potato including the peel and a sprig of celery. Blend until smooth and drink as needed. From Venezuela.
lMalvas, 7-Up, Alka-Seltzer, lemon and baking soda. Mix the malvas with 7-Up in a cup, then add an Alka-Seltzer tablet, a pinch of baking soda and one lemon. Drink one cup two or three times a day.
lIngredients: Black Toasted Bread and Honey
Instructions: A friend of mine stayed at a Palace in India for two weeks and was given this by an Indian prince. I tried it and it works well. All you do is take bread and toast it until black. I think the theory behind this is that it's like a charcoal. Spread the honey on the toast (to be honest I sometimes omit this but it DOES make the toast taste better and probably has lots of antioxidants and stuff in it). Eat. Sounds bad but it can really help. I get sick a lot and this is on my list of top remedies right after Pepto Bismol.
l Charcoal from a wood fire or charcoal tablets. Take the charcoal from the fire and mash it up in a small cup and add just enough water to cover the smashed charcoal and drink it. Not too tasty, but used by the military. If you have charcoal tablets just take however many the directions call for..
lMilk. Unless your stomach ache is caused by drinking too much milk, try this. Sip on a small cup of milk slowly and it should help calm your stomach ache.
lSour green apple. Good to take along to amusement parks.
lBay Leaves and water. Boil some water in a tea pot or in any container and add bay leaves. Boil for five minutes or so and then drink the water. You can make it as strong or as light as you wish.
lGarlic clove. Put a raw clove of garlic in your belly button. An old remedy sworn to by many Italians. Try it before you disbelieve it!
lGinger root. Boil water and pour into cup with 2-3 thin slices of ginger root. Let steep for five minutes. Drink. Optional: add some brown sugar for flavor
lMint, water, salt or sugar. Mix ingredients and drink hot. From Guatemala.
lCrushed ice. Swallowing crushed ice often helps a stomach ache and upset stomach.
