The digestive system is so important and is called upon to do a big job. A point that we overlook is everything we put in our mouth goes on a journey involving many digestive systems and components. It is little wonder people end up with digestive complaints.
To support the digestive system is not complicated. Like most things, common-sense offers solutions. By evaluating what you put into the mouth is the first consideration. A good thing to do is to get a little notebook and write everything you eat and drink for a 14 day period. Now when people do this, their diet improves immediately. For the purpose of this exercise do not change your diet as we want to evaluate what you are eating. Once you have done this, you need to ask yourself a few simple questions.
Within 1 hour, how do I feel after consuming the food? Good, bad, sleepy or energised.
With the foods on your list ask yourself, “would Adam and Eve have that food’? You know they are the ones who saw the potential of eating apples, but that is the topic of another blog. If they could eat it then it would be unprocessed, see the point?
Put a line through all the highly processed foods and tick all the fresh foods you have consumed. Eat more of the foods with a tick and reduce the ones with a cross. How are we going so far?
Now let us add some healing plants and medicine to aid digestion.
- Grated apple (helps to break down in body if grated)
- Grated carrot
- Add apple cider and lemon juice to diet, about one teaspoon of each, once a day.
There are lots more things we can do, yet we need to start by making small changes to get that digestive system running like a Swiss clock.
With all of our common conditions, there are hundreds of excellent treatments. The ones offered here are a starting point. Be inspired and excited about the wonderful healing ability of natural medicine.
