I am not a professional homeopath, but I am an expert in belly aches! Fortunately, I have treated and been taught by some brilliant homeopaths over the last twenty years. Using that powerful wisdom, I have created the Save-Your-Belly Homeopathic Kit, and I am excited to share it with you.

Learning Homeopathy for Your Belly

Homeopathy is a refined art that takes years to learn, just as any medical specialty does. The remedies I am sharing below are the ones commonly prescribed for acute and chronic conditions, and are not meant to take the place of working with a skilled professional for solutions to long-term problems.


The wonderful thing about homeopathy is how safe it is to use, for both kids and adults, when used correctly and in the right doses. Seeing my son’s nausea completely disappear within 10 minutes of giving him nux vomica convinced me never to go without a homeopathy kit in my home. It’s important to note that medical supervision should be considered concurrent with homeopathic care if serious symptoms persist.

How to Use Homeopathy

Take three pellets on an empty stomach, every fifteen minutes when in crisis and then every hour to two hours. Homeopathic solutions can be rendered ineffective by strong smells like perfume, and strong tastes like coffee and peppermint, so avoid those while using your remedies.


Homeopathic remedies are prescribed according to the symptoms you present. When you are buying them, you’ll notice each remedy comes in a choice of strengths. Your professional homeopath will use all the different strengths, but 30C is the recommended strength for over-the-counter use.


Three Excellent Remedies

  1.  Aconitum 30C: For digestive problems, especially during very hot weather, and if the belly is gassy and sensitive to touch. Symptoms that respond well to this remedy are: nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

  2. Arsenicum Album 30C: This works well if the stomach pain is burning, cannot bear sight or smell of food; vomiting, diarrhea, anxiety, restlessness, and weakness are present, and the person feels better with warmth. This is excellent for food poisoning.

  3. Bryonia 30C: Where stomach is sensitive to touch and pressure with dry mouth, thirst, constipation, loss of appetite and cutting pain in abdomen followed by diarrhea.
