hello

does anyone have any recomendations for herbal remedies they use to treat stomach aches. i have been gluten-free for a year now but still even when i know i am careful have very bad stomach aches.

i avoid not only wheat and dairy but also foods like baked beans too many green veg but i still get this dull ache.

a friend of mine uses aloe vera from forever living products but i find that not only does it taste awrful but it just has a laxativ affect.

any one got any ideas? i find that going to a regular doctor with these problems is a waste of time as they just don't have the knowledge of what we go through.

thanks, nic.

ginger tea. for me, it's not a huge help, but a little bit.

My suggestion would be to keep a food/symptom diary to find out the cause of the stomach aches! B)

If you are absolutely gluten-free, you shouldn't be having them :( You do avoid barley, rye, and oats too, right?

Either you have another food intollerence or your getting hidden glutens from somewhere.... The stomach aches are a sign...
Did you know that just kissing a nonGF person can glutenate you? Are your make-ups and lotions gluten-free?

Sometimes I try activated charcoal capsules, but they don't really help much...

Please, work on finding out what the underlying cause is! That will help more than any remedy!!

thanks for all your suggestions.

i am completely gluten free including barley, oats and rye. i also can't eat any rice or rice noodles so as you can imagine going out for meals is a real hassel. i also find myself not telling people my problem becasue it really puts them off, especialy men!

i think too much fibre is my problem, but i am concerned about the dreaded colon cancer so not sure what to do about this one.

i'll try the peppermint and ginger teas and plenty of relaxation exercises!! and hopefully it will work.

thanks again, take care. nic.
