Intestinal Pain
Answered by: Christine Dennis
Question from: Maria
Posted on: July 23, 2009

I would like to know if there is any herb that will help my husband get rid of pain. he has been to many doctors and can’t find the reason for it. They just keep given him pain killers that don’t help him.

There are so many causes of pain in the intestines making it very difficult to offer some suggestions. If all tests - various scopes, ultrasounds, scans and blood work have all come back as "fine", I would then suggest that you look to food sensitivities and try an elimination diet. Highly suspect foods to start with would be dairy and wheat. Herbs to help calm the digestive inflammation that may be present with it would be teas (1 heaping teaspoon per cup of water) such as chamomile, bergamont, or catnip with wild yam powder (1/2 teaspoon per cup) added. This can be drank 3 times per day.
