Stomach Upsets

A leaf tea from LABRADOR TEA used to be an American domestic medicine for stomach disorders (Bergen. 1899). Hopi Indians used BROOMWEED (Gutierrezia microcephala) tea to cure the complaint (Weiner). CAMOMILE tea is a great standby for an upset stomach, not only in Britain, but also in France, Italy and Greece as well, and probably more. SPEARMINT tea is another well tried remedy. The Miwok Indians used it to relieve stomach trouble and diarrhoea (Barrett & Gifford), and herbalists still prescribe it for these complaints (Fluck). Gerard described it as "marvellous wholesome for the stomacke". Country people in Ireland simply tie a sprig round the wrist for a stomach upset (O' Farrell).
