Natural remedies are popular. Many of us know the effect of herbs, spices and other natural substances. Therefore naturopathic preparations stand in the focus of the German stomach intestine day on 5 November, which is proclaimed annually by the non-profit GASTRO league registered association, in order to clear up over diseases of stomach, intestine and liver as well as metabolic and nourishing disturbances. In fact, herbal preparations can be helpful for gastrointestinal complaints, but even these should not be used imprudently.

There are a number of natural remedies that can provide relief from gastrointestinal distress:

We recommend using fennel and caraway for air in the stomach, psyllium for sluggish bowels and berberine or peppermint oil for irritable bowel syndrome.

However, it is important to keep an eye on the symptoms! If symptoms persist, at the latest when alarm symptoms occur such as blood in the stool, unexplained weight loss, anemia, nausea and vomiting or persistent cramping abdominal pain, those affected should definitely seek medical help to clarify the cause.

Herbal medicines and other therapies of the so-called complementary medicine can be a valuable addition to the classical orthodox medicine. This also includes an individual food analysis in order to identify intolerances and reduce any discomfort.

But this way is not an alternative, but a useful complement to conventional medicine. The first step is a conscientious diagnosis before therapy. On this basis, we then build a bridge between conventional medicine and/or complementary medicine. It is crucial not to delay the detection of dangerous diseases, because a disease overlooked at an early stage and thus not treated in time is tragic.
