There is a huge number of common problems hindering our ability to digest our food properly and particularly around this time of year where we may overindulge, be stressed, and not looking after our livers as well. Some of the common symptoms of digestive insufficiency can include bloating, belching, pain, flatulence, heartburn, nausea, constipation, or diarrhoea.
The good news is there are many herbs which can actually help deal with the some of the causes of these digestive issues, by supporting our nervous system and adrenals targeting our stress response, supporting our liver and gallbladder, and also our digestive secretions like our stomach acid and enzymes which breakdown the food we eat.
Our key herbs for digestion are Ginger, Aniseed, Cinnamon, Dandelion, St Marys Thistle, Turmeric, Peppermint, and for calming the stress response we love Skullcap, Chamomile, Licorice and Withania.
We can support hormones in many ways but herbal medicine has some secret weapons that we can enjoy in a herbal tea. If you’re dealing with high cortisol from chronic stress some nervine and adaptogen herbs are needed, if you have sugar cravings then you might benefit from blood sugar balancing action, If your skin needs some love you could try herbs for healing, liver detoxification and blood/lymph cleansing.
Our favourite hormone balancing herbs are Burdock, Red Clover, Cinnamon, Turmeric, St Marys Thistle, Calendula, Dandelion, Nettle, Licorice, Withania, and Siberian ginseng.
