1 week out of DiVinci tomorrow. Coming along but recognize swollen belly internal inflammation. Unable to take IBUPHROPHEN or any NSAIDs due to risk of ulcers. Welcome any recommendation of natural supplement without the risks.

I have heard that pineapple and pineapple juice work pretty good. Hugs and prayers, Lou Ann

I don't know about any natural supplements but I wanted to suggest to you to use Gas-X for the swollen belly. It took me several weeks to get that resolved and Gas-X was very beneficial. There are several ladies on the board that have a lot of experience with alternatives. I'm hoping someone with knowledge will respond soon for you.... Love and Hugs, Cindi

Turmeric/curcumin is supposed to be one of the best natural anti-inflammatory agents.  I know people that take it for just that reason alone for chronic inflammation.  I don't know how it would be for acute.  Also, bromelain, ginger, garlic, willow bark all have anti-inflammatory properties.  Bromelain is the enzyme found in pineapples that reduces inflammation.
