Just before Christmas I was diagnosed with Pneumonia and given a course of anti-bionics.
On Christmas Day Kelly had a diarrhea and sickness bug and of course four days later I caught it. I had diarrhea the whole of last week and was not able to keep any foods and liquids inside me. Our health helpline recommended that i eat rice, carrots and sweat corn as these help to block up the stomach and digestive system.
It helped for 24hrs but then the problem returned again. Then the doctor gave me Vi-Siblin testa ispaghulae which are granules that you mix with water and drink. After a bit I research I found that this is made from the seed husks of plantain (plantago sp), one of my favorite herbal species of plants https://naturallore.wordpress.com/2008/03/19/greater-plantain/. This has been very effective and I am feeling much better now, however the pneumonia unfortunately persists and so I was unable to travel to England yesterday as planned.
When i did some work with the US Airforce in 2005
they taught about using different types of ash from a fire to help the digestive system by using the saying….”tight – white, black – slack” which means if you have constipation, mix white ash from the fire with water and drink to relieve symptoms and if you have diarrhea, use black charcoal from the fire mixed with water and drink to relieve the symptoms. These methods work very well.
