If people understood how this home remedy works and how much relief they could have, I believe it would change much of life as we know it.
I found out about this recipe after a trip to the hospital emergency room. I will NOT go to the ER unless I feel like there is something so wrong it simply cannot wait. Everyone that knows me knows that. This was one of those times.
I had had a stomachache for quite some time. That wasn’t anything new for me. Everyone has a stomachache from time to time. I had issues with ulcers at one point, so it didn’t really bother me much.
That One Morning
I got up that one morning and even a small sip of water would make me double over in unbearable pain. It didn’t take long before I told my husband that I had to do something. So we went to the ER.
After many tests, they determined that I had severe bleeding ulcers. I wound up being there the entire day. They had me on an IV drip in each arm and gave me specific instructions as to what kind of medication I would have to take. For the rest of my life.
After doing some research, I found the medicine was going to be a few hundred dollars each month. It would come out of pocket because Lord knows we didn’t have insurance.
But I’m a “natural remedies” kind of girl and collect all manner of home remedy recipe. I immediately started to research natural alternatives to the treatment plan I’d been given. That’s when I found the recipe and article surrounding Oatmeal Broth.
At first, it sounded awful. I could just imagine the texture, which is a big deal for me with foods and drinks. But I also knew I wouldn’t be able to afford that medicine. So I broke down and tried it.
The Oatmeal Broth Recipe:
It’s a pretty simple home remedy to make.
Just take any box of oats, either the quick cook kind or the other. It really doesn’t matter. Read the directions for one serving of oats. Use the amount of oats it actually calls for, but quadruple the amount of water used to make it. So, if the box says 1/4 cup of oats and 1 cup of water, use 1/4 cup of oats and four cups of water.
When you put it on the stove, set it to the lowest setting that will maintain just a few bubbles in the oats. You don’t want to cook it too quickly. If you do, the water will evaporate, and you’ll lose all the medicinal properties.
Once you have a steady bubble going, let that cook for about an hour. Then take it off and let it cool. Once it cools so that you can handle it, strain it through a layer or two of cheesecloth into a glass jar with a lid.
Your oatmeal broth will keep like this for several weeks in the fridge if you keep the lid on tight. Once you find out how good it works, you probably won’t let it wait that long.
How To Use This Home Remedy:
I have found that the directions for using this home remedy vary because it’s a very old recipe. Some say a teaspoon or so every couple of hours. Others say a juice glass full once a day. I’m just going to tell you what I did.
I took a regular shot glass and took one shot every hour. Within just 3-4 hours, my stomach pains were starting to subside. Finally, I could sit without too much discomfort, and by the next day, my pain was gone entirely.
I was a tried and true believer from that point on! And let me tell you, I’ve told everyone that would listen. Unfortunately, many people do not believe the answer is so simple. I doubt half the people I’ve told have ever tried it. But I’m pretty sure I can confidently say, if you are ever in the position I was in, and get the results I got from the oatmeal broth, you’ll be a believer too!
How Does This Home Remedy Work?
Oats contain natural silicone. Once you boil the oats, that silicone is present in the “broth” and acts as a sealant throughout your entire system. I’ve seen it work for ulcers and many other stomach and digestive problems. In some cases, even severe sore throats and canker sores have been healed.
One thing is for sure: if you are facing stomach troubles, you have nothing to lose by trying oatmeal broth. Especially if you are facing the possibility of taking medication for the rest of your life into your life. It’s just about as all-natural as anything can be, and there is no flavor to speak of. It’s easy and affordable to make for anyone.
The only thing I’ve noticed is that people really dislike its texture. It’s not exactly slimy, but it’s not as thin as water either. But, like any medication, no one said it was going to taste good.
If you try it and it works for you, I’d love to hear back from you. It’s my wish that everyone who suffers from the same kind of pain I did will get the same kind of relief that I did.
