Hey, first podcast of 2021! Since the whole world is hollering “New year, new you!”, I figured I'd talk about how you can work on healing your body from the inside out. So I'm just going to share with you a few of my absolute favorite herbs that I love to turn to when I have issues of inflammation in the gut. Our gut health is absolutely essential to healthy immune function, emotional wellbeing, and overall vitality of your entire body. Today, there's over 3 million Americans with irritable bowel syndrome and there are so many others suffering from inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, skin conditions, all of the “-itis” issues, and sometimes inexplicable auto-immune disorders. It’s clear we have major problems going on and you know where it stems from? The gut.
You’ll find some overlap with previous episodes, but that’s because so many wonderful plants can help more than one condition. Isn’t that lovely? In fact, all three of the herbs featured here are multi-taskers: Chamomile (Matricaria recutita), Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria), & Marshmallow (Althea oficinalis). We talk about how these herbs act to coat & soothe the smooth tissues of your gastrointestinal tract and how multiple body systems can benefit from the same herb because of similar tissues.
Of course, there are many other herbs that can help with inflammation --plantain, calendula, ginger, turmeric. I just really want to urge you to make mindful choices and to remember to be good to your gut so it can be good to you. Make sure you're nourishing your body and you're taking care of you from the inside out.
Remember, different bodies react to herbs in different ways. The information presented is in no way meant to diagnose or remedy any ailment.
