What is it that you take with the fenugreek?
I brew a tea in the morning if I am feeling bloated or my tummy is unsettled - a dozen bruised fennel seeds, 1/4 of lemon (squeeze out the juice, then pop in whole segment). It is very calming, takes away the bloating & is quite refreshing. I got used to the taste very quickly.
Swallowing the seeds whole really helped increase my breast milk supply.
I eat fresh fennel, like I eat celery. I also use it when i cook home made soups....it feelis like it soothes my stomache.
I learn't it was a pain relief. But yesterday I has a serious heartburn after eating pizza and I decided to drink fresh fennel in hot water I was amazed at the relief. So I goggled today and discovered it does relieve heartburn.
