In 1965, when I lived on the Russian River in Guerneville, CA. I was into self-sufficiency and the hippy lifestyle. When I began to experience strong and consistent pains in my stomach, day after day, I did some research and found that my symptoms were consistent with havig stomach ulcers.
At that time I was pretty heavy into natural healing and read a lot of books about herbal remedies. One book mentioned that an herb called “Golden Seal” was particularly powerful and known to heal ulcers. I decided to give it a try.
I made a cup of golden seal tea using a rather large amount of golden seal, maybe double the recommended dose. I drank the whole cup. Well, within 20 minutes I was sweating profusely and doubled over on my bed with severe pain in my stomach.. right where the ulcers were located in my stomach. I lay on the bed for hours and endured the pain. I finally fell asleep and slept through the night. The next morning I felt fine. I felt wonderful. I had not a trace of any ulcer and never again, in over 40 years, have I gotten an ulcer.
Back then golden seal was affordable. I hear that it is outrageously expensive now… but I can understand why. It has amazing healing properties!
