15 Nov 2017 I developed stomach cramps with age or possibly due to string antibiotic dose which I took 3 years ago to get rid of viral fever which otherwise was clashing with a holiday plan. Anyone in my situation would not have stopped going to see a doctor. However, I strongly believe in nature cure. After trying with many such items, finally ajwain appears to have got rid of the problem. Boil ajwain powder with dry ginger powder 1 teaspoon each in 2 cups of water until the quantity reduces to one cup and drink like tea. You can also use with green tea.
