Because I strive to eat healthfully, I very, very rarely get an upset stomach. But when it strikes I am a serious baby about it.
Well, the other night was one of THOSE nights. I had wicked painful gas cramps, my tummy gurgled and groaned LOUDLY and non-stop, and I just couldn’t get to sleep because it was bothering me so badly.
So I crawled out of bed in search of a remedy. I don’t keep many drugs on hand, so I had no Pepto or any other not-so-good for you medicine. So, instead, I set to work making myself some tea.
Utilizing my knowledge of herbs (I’ve been studying it a lot), I concocted a Tummy Trouble Tea with what herbs we happened to have on hand. A bit of Sweet Leaf stevia to sweeten it (no cream, though, as I understand that can mess with the beneficial properties of the herbs) and I went to sipping away.
Within about 10 to 15 minutes, my upset tummy which had been torturing me all night (this was around 2 AM) FINALLY began to settle.
This is that concoction. May it also help you and your family in times of tummy troubles.
