    Try taking an antiacid or basic substance. Milk and diary products are good for this

  4. barbara, 06 May, 2010

    Baking soda. Try cranberry juice for the stones thing instead-you can get it made with 100% juice now (grape and apple juice instead of added sugar).

  5. miyazaki75, 06 May, 2010

    Anything with ginger in it (ginger root, ginger ale).

  6. starrwoode, 06 May, 2010

    peppermint tea is good for a tummy ache, but if you are drinking way too much fluid you are causing your own tummy trouble, like a foundered horse.

    why dont you just ge at antacid, like pepto bismal? o yeah, water is great for kidney stones. it helps to get them out of your system. the more water the better!!!! i think you should go buy some health books. theyre very usefull. i have a bunch at my house.

    Apples Apples contain pectin which will add bulk to your stools and their cleansing action will encourage bowel movements. They have a laxative effect.

    Apple cider vinegar As a fermented version of apples they have some of the same beneficial properties. Take two teaspoons twice a day with a glass of water.

    Bananas Bananas are high in fiber and can help restore normal bowel function.

    Bran Put at least 1/3 cup of bran on your cereal each morning.

    Flaxseed oil Flaxseed oil is a traditional folk remedy. Take 1 to 2 tablespoonsful with lots of water right after lunch or dinner.

    Flaxseed Combined with apple cider vinegar, this mixture is another remedy. Boil two cups of water and add two tablespoons of flaxseed; boil for fifteen minutes; strain off the flaxseed, leaving a jelly-like substance. Drink a cup of this on an empty stomach, adding one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Take daily until you get regular bowels. Flaxseed is an excellent source of essential fatty acids which are necessary for proper bowel functioning, among other benefits.

    • A similar remedy is to soak 1 tablespoon of flaxseeds in 6 ounces of water and drink this mixture once or twice daily.

    • Eat three or four tablespoons of ground flaxseed daily. They can be mixed in a smoothie, put on salads, or mixed with cottage cheese.

    Beets Take two small beets, scrub them clean, and eat them in the morning. You should have a bowel movement 12 hours later.

    Brewer’s Yeast/Wheat Germ Take half a teaspoonful each of brewer’s yeast and wheat germ with all meals. After several days if you haven’t gotten the needed results, increase the amount by 1/4 teaspoon two or three times until you do.

    Carrot juice The essential oils in carrot juice have an effect on the mucous membranes in the stomach and help get the bowels functioning properly. Take juice several times daily. This will help regain proper digestion. This is good for children, too.

    Dates Soak six dates in a glass of hot water; when cool, drink the water and eat the dates.

    Elderflower Drink an infusion of elderflower once daily, as needed.

    Epsom or Rochelle salts Drink a mixture of one teaspoonful in a half glass of water before bed. This is very bitter, but very efficient.

    Fruit Eat at least three raw fruits daily. The citrus helps promote regularity. Strawberries, prunes and spinach are laxatives.

    Garlic Garlic is effective for three reasons: it soothes, cleanses and reduces inflammation. Garlic is also very rich in potassium which is essential for proper contractions of muscles, including the intestines. Without proper contractions the muscles become partially paralyzed, resulting in constipation. The potassium is also important in the body’s electrolyte system. Dice some garlic and take with juice, milk, soup or honey two or three times a day. You may also cook the garlic. Garlic tablets are also effective and can be used by people who have problems digesting raw garlic. Take two tablets once or twice daily for mild cases, three times for bad cases, and up to five times daily for severe cases. The doses should be two grams each. Several cloves of raw garlic eaten in a salad or other food often produces good results quickly.

    Honey Honey has mild laxative properties. Start by taking a tablespoon three times a day or add to foods or drinks.

    Licorice Licorice is a laxative. Make a tea of licorice and drink before meals to enhance production of stools. Not recommended for use by pregnant women as it may increase the risk of premature delivery.

    Molasses Add 1 to 2 tablespoons a day to hot cereal or mix with warm water and drink it.

    Olive oil Take one tablespoonful of olive oil in the morning and one tablespoonful an hour after dinner.

    Pepper Make a massage oil of black pepper, marjoram and rosemary (one drop of each in a light carrier oil) and rub into the abdominal area.

    Persimmon Eat a persimmon if they are available.

    Psyllium Mix one or two rounded teaspoons of psyllium seed husks in a glass of water and take after meals. This is a safe laxative.

    Rhubarb helps with regularity because it is a good source of water and fiber. Adding bulk to your stool will keep your bowels moving. Use it stewed or in pies, but only the stalks. Or, take 2-3 capsules of Chinese rhubarb root at one time. Another way is to make a tea by bringing a cup of water to a boil then adding 1 2/3 teaspoons of cut dried rootstock; simmer for 3 minutes; remove to steep, covered for half an hour; drink only 1/4 to 1/2 cup. If you continue to have constipation, increase the dosage, as too little rhubarb can cause constipation. This may seem odd, but rhubarb is used for constipation and diarrhea, but in different doses.

    Sauerkraut Drink an 8 ounce glass of warm sauerkraut juice followed immediately by an 8 ounce glass of grapefruit juice(unsweetened).

    Senna Drink an infusion of senna once daily, as needed. Not recommended for use by pregnant women. Senna contains anthraquinone which may increase the risk of uterine contractions.

    Spinach Drinking a pint of spinach juice daily has often corrected constipation in a short period of time.

    Sunflower seeds Sunflower seeds promote regularity. Take a handful of raw shelled, unsalted seeds every day.

    Triphala, or "three fruits" in Ayurvedic, has been used for centuries as a mild laxative, digestive tract toner and bowel cleanser. It also stimulates the liver which helps eliminate toxins from the body. Compounds in the fruits that make up triphala, known as anthraquinones, stimulate intestinal contractions which speeds the digestive process. Due to its mildness, it can be used over long periods without fear of overuse as is the case with most laxatives. If you experience diarrhea, stomach pain or nausea after taking this remedy, stop using it. Use one teaspoon of powder in 1/4 cup of water two to three times daily, or take 1,500 mg at night. Once your constipation problem has ended, either stop using triphala or cut the dose in half to maintain a healthy digestive system.

    suck on a mint. It is a natural cure for a stomach ache. even chew a piece of gum for a while until the flavor starts to go. you could try a herbal tea also.

    Hi Sammy

    Here is a method to get rid of the stones naturally. Takes some comittment and work, but worth it

    Kidney Formula 2 oz
    Formulae: Uva Ursi leaves, Juniper berries, Corn silk, Horsetail herb, Pipsissewa leaf, Burdock root and seed and Goldenrod flower tops.

    Kidney Flush Tea 8 oz
    Formulae: Juniper berries, Corn silk, Uva Ursi leaves, Parsley root and leaf, Dandelion leaf, Horsetail herb, Goldenrod flower tops, Hydrangea root, Gravel root and Marshmallow root, Orange peel and Peppermint leaf.

    Uric Acid Crystals in the Kidneys are easy to dissolve quickly. Small calcium gravel and plaque is easier and faster to dissolve than one large stone. Regardless of the size of your crystal and rock collection, if you have or even suspect any type of sediment, gravel or stone in your Kidneys or Bladder, or have been diagnosed by a doctor as having them, it is time to get to work. As a minimum, do the 5 Day Cleansing and Detoxification Program that includes the Kidney Flush Drink and all the Kidney Herbal Formulae. If the Problems still persists I suggest doing my 5 Day Cleansing and Detoxification Routine for an additional week. You can also do my Stone Dissolving Routine that I used in my clinic to dissolve literally thousands of Kidney stones.

    The hydrangea included in the herbals that accompany the stone disolve routine may not in some cases completely disolve your rock collection but will enable you to pass them more easily. Even so I have seen some members completely disolve their stones and pass only the sediment. For each person it will be different. What you can expcet from the proper use of the herbal aids and routines stated in the following paragraph from Dr. Christiopher’s writings.

    There is much disagreement about Hydrangea’s stone-dissolving properties. Most authorities agree that it does remove the stones, but not everyone considers the herb a solvent. Dr. Butler affirmed that the herb relieves the pain of the passing of the calculi. Dr. Shook explained that the sharp pain that is associated with gravel deposits comes from the sharp points of the crystal piercing the kidney or ureter. When the sharp points are even partially dissolved, he said, the pain, hemorrhage and inflammation all subside, and the stone or stones frequently pass with just a stretching of the tubes. How, he asked, is it possible to account for the fact that when these stones pass through easily after the administration of Hydrangea, they are found to be smooth and round, while x-rays revealed their sharp point piercing the tissues? He said that their clinical evidence proved that Hydrangea is truly a stone solvent.

    This routine takes 3 days and can be repeated. On Day One Take a gallon jug and fill it with the ingredients listed below. Let the mixture steep
    in a warm place for a whole day, shaking every couple of hours for a minute or two.

    In a Gallon Jug Combine the Following:
    96 ounces Organic Fresh squeezed Apple Juice
    10 ounces Organic Fresh squeezed Lemon Juice
    10 ounces Organic Fresh squeezed Lime Juice
    10 ounces Organic, Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar
    One 2 oz bottle of the Kidney Formula
    8 oz of the Kidney Flush Tea

    To make this formula stronger, mix all the ingredients in a blender. This will break down and smash all the herbs. Let this sit for 24 hours, then
    strain through a stainless steel strainer or squeeze through a clean, cotton T-shirt. The strained formula must now be kept in the
    refrigerator until it is all consumed.

    On Day Two & Three after it has brewed drink 4 ounces each waking hour followed by a glass of distilled water. It will take almost 2 days to
    drink the entire gallon of liquid. You can even drink an ounce every 15 minutes. Considering that you Sleep 8 hours and are up for 16, if you drink 4 ounces every hour that you are awake, you will consume a total of 64 ounces each day which means this brew will last you almost 2 days.

    You will also be drinking some distilled water, up to 64 ounces a day. Only distilled water, the emptiest waster is allowed. Distilled water is so empty, it is like a vacuum, it is the universal solvent especially for unwanted mineral deposits. Just by drinking distilled water on a regular basis you dissolve stones, and prevent new ones from forming. But when added to this routine you’ll have a real winner.

    Best of health to you

    Yogurtn is good for a upset tummy.
    Good luck with your other issue, I know how tough it can be.

  12. danaluana, 06 May, 2010

    If you think your pH is off balance, eating the yogurt is good. I would stop the milk though, until your stomach feels better.

    For any upset stomach ginger works great. Get fresh ginger and either grate it in a tea or make a ginger soup with chicken broth and pieces of ginger.

  13. Meghan@rooibostea, 04 January, 2011

    Eek – if you’re going to use lemons just squeeze lemons into water, don’t drink lemonade with added sugar! Try drinking Rooibos herbal tea with Ginger – stomach should calm down pretty quickly.

  14. Martyn@bowel cancer test, 26 January, 2011

    I think you just need time to let your digestive system recover from the battering you gave it. Never overload on any one thaing – balance is the key as in other aspects of life.

    I’ve had success with smoothies that include ginger, oranges, and I can’t remember what else now I use. If you Goole it though, I’m sure you’ll find some ideas. Also you may want to visit with a naturalistic doctor.
