Digestive System

Your health is often govern by your digestive system.  Everything you eat travels from the stomach to the intestines where nutrients are absorbed and waste is eliminated via the bowel.  Food is broken down by digestive enzymes and "good and friendly" bacteria in the gut. 

If your digestive system is out of sync, due to poor diet, stress and over dose of antibiotics, food intolerance or toxin overload, food remains semi digested and problem such as leaky gut irritable bowel syndrome, nausea and bloating arise.  Food itself will become toxins if not digested properly.

How to boost your digestive system:

  • Only eat when you are hungry and do not overeat or eat large meals late in the evening

  • Take time over meals to teat mouthful and properly and slowly

  • Cut down on refined carbohydrate and foods high in fat content

  • Do not drink too much with meals as this can dilute your digestive juice

  • Start the day with fruit juices or fruits to boost your digestive system

  • Herbal tea such as chamomile, peppermint or fennel can be soothing

  • Improve the overall condition of gut by regularly eating low fat probiotic yogurt

  • Many herbs and spices are and aid to digestion so us bay leaf, caraway, cardamon, cinnamon, dill, fennel, ginger, marjoram, mint parsley and tarragon in cooking
