Building a Homeopathic Save-Your-Belly Kit

Today, we are continuing to build our home-medicine kit of homeopathy for the gut. Here are four more excellent remedies for the Save-Your-Belly Homeopathic Kit. Special thanks to Kathleen Boisen, OMD, who has advised me so skillfully over the years, and taught me how powerful a subtle medicine like homeopathy can be.


Homeopathic prescriptions are sold in containers the size of a lipstick tube, so you can easily keep three or four in your bag. Don’t be intimidated by the details in the list below–it is for your education and awareness. The labels on your remedies carry excellent descriptions of what they treat.

Building Your Save-the-Belly Homeopathic Kit


1. Carbo Veg 30C

For burning, bloated feeling in the gut; ill effects from over-indulgence of rich food late at night with salty taste in mouth; feels better after belching; skin is damp and cold; sweaty diarrhea.


2. Belladonna 30C

This common remedy battles those sharp stomach pains that strike and then disappear suddenly. The pain is worse with motion and better with steady pressure and when lying on the stomach. This is good for fever and flu.


3. Chamomilla 30C

This remedy’s hallmark symptom consists of irritability and anger caused by the pain. Restlessness from discomfort; cutting colic or diarrhea with colic. You experience bad cramps, may have diarrhea, and need to arch your back during painful spasms. The pain is worse at night and after eating.


 4. Nux Vomica 30C

Nux vomica is excellent for indigestion after eating; bitter nausea, sour stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. It works well when you have eaten and/or drunk too much. It’s also excellent for hangovers. Take three tablets under the tongue every fifteen minutes in crisis and then every two hours.


Happy-Gut Reminder: Try a homeopathic remedy the next time you have gas, bloating, nausea or the flu.
