My sister, a (health nut) tells me that Rejuvelac can help heal many digestive problems.  She made me a small amount that I am now trying out.  Have you tried Rejuvelac?  Did it help resolve your digestive disorder?

    iv never heard of this hun maybe you dont leave in the uk .

    but i have heard that one of the best cures for stomach problems is beef broth

    homemade from grass fed cows ,apparently the latest craze  in the USA

    if your in the states ,i believe that there is a ready made brand by pacific foods thats supposed to be amazing, i wish they would sell in the uk .

    if your in the UK there are many recipes on the net how to make beef broth.

    apparently its the genletine from the slow cooking of the bones that helps heal the stomach [hope your not vegertarin] our parents and grandparents made it. 

    and the jewish swear by chicken soup made from the carkus of the chicken for health . so thats what i know . hope it helps

    Rejuvelac is fermented, and that's what makes it good for the gut. I also take digestive enzymes, lactobacillus, flax seed, psyllium, and plenty of water and I've been prescribed a restricted diet with no dairy, wheat, minimal sugar for my irritable bowel syndrome (gone!).

    I think all of those things taken together have worked well for me.

    Proof - I've had two colonoscopies ten years apart. The first one showed some diverticulosis, no polyps. The second one: no diverticulosis, no polyps. Looking online, diverticulosis is treated with antibiotics, but I haven't taken any in 10 years. So, I'm a believer!

    Here is a recipe for it.  I took it twice last night, once right before bed.  I noticed that I did not have reflux burning last night.  It could just be a coincidence.  I will keep track daily.  Even though it is made from wheat berries, I believe it does not affect wheat allergies, You don't actually eat the wheat, just the fermented juice.

    Rejuvelac:

    Rejuvelac is a fermented beverage that is inexpensive, easy to make, refreshing to drink and FULL of wonderful nutrients for your body. A healthy probiotic, it also has vitamins B, K and E, proteins, and enzymes. It is beneficial to your digestive system, promoting a healthy intestinal environment. It is also a great starter for raw nut cheese!

    How to make Rejuvelac:

    1. Start with one cup soft wheat berries (pictured). You can also use rye, quinoa, buckwheat, or other grains. Wheat, rye and quinoa seem to make the best rejuvelac. Place the wheat berries in a sprouting jar with a screen top and fill with water.

    2. Soak the grain for 24 hours. Drain off water, leave berries in jar and rinse two to three times a day until little sprout tails appear.

    3. Place sprouted grain in large jar with a top that allows air to circulate. Add 4 cups water and let sit on the counter for 2-3 days.

    4. You will notice that the water will get cloudy and little bubbles will start forming.

    5. Taste…it should taste clean and fresh with a hint of lemon. Strain the rejuvelac off of the wheat berries and store in covered glass container in the refrigerator. It will keep for at least a week, just make sure it still smells and tastes fresh. You can reuse the wheat berries to make a second batch. It will only take a day.
