Stomache problems solved
Good day,
I had stomach problems for a long time now, like pains in the stomach and permanent running stools. I've depleted my medical aid this year trying to find a solution. So 2 weeks ago I chatted to someone about this and he recommended I start drinking beer(only 1 or 2 per evening). Now I normally drink very little, and normally prefer wine. Since I started drinking beer I had the best 2 weeks in a long time! No pains and fantastic formed stools. I think the hops in the beer are very good for your stomach, would appreciate DietDoc's input.

Dear Happy
I am glad for your sake that the tummy troubles have cleared up. Hops may be helping, but if you should have a recurrence of this condition then try probiotics (good bugs) such as Bifidoflora or Bifidoforte (buy at health shop).
Best regards
