Slippery Elm (Ulmus fulva or Ulmas ruba - inner bark of the tree)

From Plant Cures

Slippery Elm is Good For Diverticulitis, Irritable bowel,heart burn and other digestive problems. It is also used for acne. 
This is a heroic Plant Cure to me! Back as recently as the 50's you could buy this in powder form at any drug store. Most people new it was a sure remedy for heart burn and other digestive problems when a table spoon of it was eaten with some warm water made into a "gruel". (With a little honey it has a very nice nutty taste!)

 A few "00" size capsules of it a day for about two weeks cured my dad of almost
constant heart burn caused from an injured esophagus. When eaten in doses of a few table spoons 2-3 times a day it can flat cure Diverticulitis!  However one thing should be considered first and that is the possibility that you have Celiac’s Disease! It turns out that some of these people with “Irritable Bowel” disorder have this condition and their doctors don't recognize it. Get the test if you want to be sure. 

While Slippery Elm will work on the symptoms and provide great relief it will not cure Celiacs Disease. This is usually an inherited condition and it would seem the only thing one can do is stay away from foods containing gluten. (Wheat,Rye, Barley, and certain other grains and food) 
However don't let them tell you there is "no cure"  There are no absoloutes! People can adjust and balance out which is, in my book, a cure!Acne Flash!  
Also when Slippery Elm is applied to the face (mixed with water like mud) and left on overnight it can get rid of many acne problems in just a few days.  

Slippery Elm is nutritious and can be tolerated by convalescing people even better then
rice when made into a gruel. It has a way of softening the inside of the bowels and making toxins become loose so they can be flushed easily. This is why it is an important part of the Plant Cures Detox Formula.
