At The People’s Pharmacy, we learn many wonderful remedies from our readers. When we come across something especially surprising or helpful, we love to share it.
We recently received this testimonial from a visitor:
“In March of 2000 I fell five stories. I broke many bones and spent a month in a coma. During this period I had 36 surgeries and along with them, protracted intravenous antibiotics.
“As a result, I had years of stomach pain and intermittent, uncontrollable-explosive diarrhea. I tried probiotics and digestive enzymes. They helped for only a short time, but I finally discovered something close to an actual cure. That is traditional German sauerkraut fermented in brine (not pickled in vinegar). While it has helped many other people too, it doesn’t always work for everyone.”
Broad spectrum antibiotics frequently disrupt the ecology of the digestive tract. That can result in persistent diarrhea. It is great to learn that something like sauerkraut might be helpful for some people.
