This Do -It-Yourself Pepto Provides Natural Relief From Indigestion With Only 4 Ingredients

by lydia on September 9, 2014

Perhaps you’ve found yourself with an upset stomach, indigestion or diarrhea quite suddenly and needed some kind of relief. We all have. Yet, now that you are far more health conscientious than previous years in your life, you want an all natural alternative to some type of medication from the pharmacy. You’d rather not drink down some of that all too well known thick pink liquid, but don’t know what you can take instead.

Well, I’m here to share with you how you can get natural relief from indigestion with my special DIY formula, intended to replace, none other than Pepto Bismol.

Awhile back I wrote a post called; ‘How to Recover From Food Poisoning or Cross Contamination‘. Let’s face it, everyone finds themselves in a situation on occasion when natural healing strategies are good to have up their sleeve.

Recently a colleague shared they had gotten severe food poisoned by some shellfish she ate. She said:

It’s now day 6 and I’m still experiencing horrible digestive issues, I’m about ready to throw my hands up in the air and chug a gallon of pepto bismol. (Not really, but I’m pretty desperate here). My intestines are so inflamed and swollen.

That’s when I shared my post and my little recipe for DIY Pepto. No one has to drink the pink stuff off the shelf. With a few key ingredients on hand, you can whip up this healing cocktail in no time. All it takes is 4 ingredients (see image below: ingredients everyone should keep in their holistic ‘medicine cabinet’ anyway).




DIY Pepto Bismol
  • 1-ounce cherry juice
  • 1-ounce aloe vera juice
  • 1 tsp. l-glutamine
  • 1 tsp. Redmond clay
  1. Place in a small mason jar with lid and shake well.
  2. Take 1-2 ounces at a time, several times per day as needed for food poisoning or upset stomach.
  3. Not intended for extended daily use. It's always better to get to the root of the issue with any ongoing symptoms.




This DIY Pepto is good for the same issues that commercial Pepto is used for, and more:

  • Indigestion
  • Heartburn
  • Nausea
  • Upset Stomach
  • Diarrhea
  • Recovery from food poisoning
  • Recovery from consuming a food intolerance
  • Gut inflammation

So, next time you find yourself with some indigestion, simply whip up some DIY Pepto to coat and soothe your stomach and intestines for fast relief.


Are you someone that suffers from ongoing indigestion, heartburn, nausea or gut inflammation?

How would you like to get on the fast track to further clarity, focus and direction when it comes to navigating what to do, what to eat, and how to eat so you can begin to heal your gut naturally and resolve your digestive issues?

I like all the ingredients except the aloe vera — for some reason that taste makes me nauseous!! I bet just the bentonite clay, or just some activated charcoal would work!

Rebecca – have you tried George’s Aloe Vera Juice by any chance? It is tasteless and mixed with the cherry juice you can’t even taste it. That said, it will still be effective without it – I find clay alone sometimes is not enough in a more extreme situation so the 3 paired are a sure fire way to get some fast acting results!

I’m not ok to take glutamine. Can I make it without?

What do each of these ingredients do in the cocktail? What is the benefit of, for example, the cherry juice?

Catherine June 17, 2016 at 9:20 pm

The cherry juice is just to cover the flavor of the other ingredients. You really could leave it out or substitute for another kind. The Aloe Vera is soothing to the digestive system, the clay acts as a sponge and absorbs the toxins in the body. The l-glutimine repairs the digestive tract.

How long will it stay good?

Hi Kelly,

It should stay good awhile – however long the juice would stay good is what I would go by. I usually just make it up as needed.
