Are You Feeling Bloated!
Do you struggle with bloating and digestive issues, then you need to keep reading!
I know how you feel. For years I was constantly bloated (and I mean rock hard stomach, I always looked pregnant!) and I would only go to the bathroom a couple times a week. Completely constipated!
Along with the gut issues I was gaining weight, feeling low on energy and had super low self esteem. Gut health issues go way beyond an uncomfortable stomach, they lead to other health issues both physically and mentally.
One part of my nutrition that I started to focus on when restoring my gut health was HERBS.🌿
These are the 5 best herbs for improving gut health! I take these all the time and always suggest them to my clients as well.

1. Licorice root:
Licorice root is something I used in the beginning of my journey to restore my gut health. Here is a great explanation from Body into Balance by Maria Noel Groves about what licorice root does in the gut.
"Licorice root has an incredible affinity for healing wounded, inflamed gut tissue while also addressing the root of imbalance.Demulcent, soothing, and slimy, licorice immediately coats the digestive tract, forming a temporary protective lining and quelling acidity and inflammation. Regular use fends off bad gut microbes like H. pylori and heals wounds while encouraging the production of a healthier, thicker gut mucosal lining."
Here are great ways to use peppermint to help with gut health!
"Peppermint leaves are another classic carminative tonic. The oil extracted from the leaves is rich in menthol, which acts as a potent antispasmodic, and enteric-coated peppermint oil capsules perform well for gas, pain, and IBS — though they can be minty fresh on the way out.The tea offers milder action, and you can also dilute a drop of peppermint essential oil in some olive oil and rub it onto your belly."

3. Lemon Balm:
You will never find me without lemon balm! Not only does lemon balm help calm the nerves in your gut, it is also amazing for reducing stress, detoxifies the liver, and helps your immune system! It is a beautiful herb and lovely tea to wind down and drink at night.
Ginger is a beautiful medicinal spice that helps with the gut and also sore throats, fatigue, and so much more!
"This zingy root is a carminative and a whole lot more! Employ it like a digestive bitter. The fresh root contains protein-digesting enzymes. Its spicy nature warms up a sluggish digestive system, promotes beneficial bacteria, kills gut pathogens, and relieves gas, pain, bloating, and — ginger’s biggest claim to fame — nausea."
From Body into Balance by Maria Noel Groves
Chamomile helps with overall elimination and digestion. This also a great tea to wind down as it helps to promote a good nights rest! It is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti- fungal!
You can get these herbs in the form of teas, tinctures, or use them in their pure form. Herbs are an easy way to get a ton of beneficial nutrition in for healing the gut!
