Felicity (2 years ago):

Hi I am 55 and been diagnosed with IBS and have been taking Nexium 20mg for over two years. I have definitely noticed that's hair is much thinner but put it down to the menopause. Nexium is very expensive in Singapore so I decided to try natural remedies. There was a specialist interviewed on tv in the States advocating carrot juice and licquorice. He said a glass of 100pc carrot juice preferably organic heals inflammation in the stomach lining and licquorice helps too. I tried both and they definitely work. The licquorice - not the candy - from the pharmacy or health store reduces bloating and wind. But something else that works really well for night time stomach pain is a glass of goats milk. A friend said his Dad swore by it so he went to a goat farm (not easy in Singapore) and bought me some. Disgusting! Raw untreated which he said was best - but boy does it work! Give it a try and keep Nexium for those one off God I wasn't expecting this tonight ( I only had a curry and three glasses of wine) episodes. It works, believe me. So no side effects and no hair loss. Try it for a month and see if it works for you. Do a combination of all three. Good luck!
