Indigestion, gastritis, ulcer or food intolerance are among the most common causes of stomach pain. During autumn, it can be amplified, as gastritis and ulcer symptoms appear much more often.
Raw cabbage, as well as its juice, are already known to be exceptional medicines for treating stomach problems: burns, gastric ulcers, and the gastro-oesophageal reflux disease can be properly fought using this wonderful vegetable. Boiled cabbage can also be used against irritated mucus, as long as it is consumed exclusively, over the course of a few days. Consuming it in soup form, you can get a double effect: besides calming stomach pain, you can also drop some weight.
Cabbage soup against stomach pain
600 g cabbage, 1 onion, 1 garlic clove, 1 celery root, 3-4 carrots, 1 parsnip, 1 turnip, 750 g of potatoes, 2 spoons of sunflower oil, salt, pepper, 1 liter of water
How to prepare it
After cleaning the outside leaves of the cabbage, cut it in two, wash it well, let it dry and then cut into strips that are about 2 centimeters in length.
Chop the onion and garlic finely. Do the same with the carrots, celery root, turnip and parsnip. Peel the potatoes, wash them well and dice them. Place them in hot oil, together with the onion and garlic. Add salt and pepper according to your taste, then add the water and let everything boil. 10 minutes later, add the cabbage as well. Let the soup boil until all the vegetables are softened – the potatoes should break. You can also add a few tomatoes. A small amount of parsley at the end can do wonders for the overall flavor.
Consume without any extra foods – bread, pasta, and rice are all forbidden. You can even eat it cold, as it is just as tasty.
Against stomach pain, this cabbage soup should be consumed exclusively for a few days, until you see improvement.
Gastric ulcer can be cured with cabbage juice
Glutamine, an amino acid found in cabbage, stimulates the regeneration, growth and normal development of cells that make the protective layer of the stomach and small intestine.
Studies have shown that a cabbage juice diet brings spectacular healing abilities against gastric ulcer, reducing it by 35% to 45% in an incredibly short time.
How to obtain cabbage juice
You will need a centrifugal juicer for the purpose. Wash the cabbage, take any portions that may be going bad out, and cut into pieces that are small enough to fit in the machine. After letting the juice do its job, consume the liquid quickly, to avoid having it oxidate.
Cabbage juice diet
To cure gastric ulcer, consume 1 liter of fresh juice during the entire day, divided into 2-3 segments. Follow it for around 10 days.
Cabbage juice should be carefully consumed by those with a sensitive stomach, as well as those with hyper and hypothyroidism.
Cabbage may often be overlooked when it comes to healthy foods, but with studies coming to back its benefits up, you can safely use it as a very powerful and cheap medicine that becomes part of your regular diet.
