    Headaches and tummy aches
    marshagal posted:
    I have been having really bad headaches and digestive problems for the last few months. I also frequently get dizzy and have nausea. Ive noticed that MMJ helps with my headaches, dizziness and stomach aches. Ive also been losing a lot of weight because I never feel like eating. I spoke to my naturopath about it, and they recommended medicinal licorice. Has anyone used licorice for their digestive problems before? Does anyone know if my headaches and stomach problems are related. I am so frustrated and scared because I really need to be able to eat. Any advice is appreciated.

    Licorice has a steroid component to it and it's known to tamp down stomach and abdominal discomfort. I used it years ago in a Chinese herbal formula and it was of great help when mixed with several other herbs.

    Have you been evaluated via testing? And if so, what tests were done?
