3 Common Kitchen Herbs to Calm Your IBS!
IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) is unfortunately a common digestive disorder. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both.
These powerful herbs are probably hanging out in your pantry right now waiting to provide comfort for your cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, (or both!) which are common symptoms of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).
GINGER: Relaxes the stomach muscles, increase peristalsis (bowel movement), decreases gas, increases saliva and anti-nausea. Try my Turmeric Ginger Tea!
CHAMOMILE: anti-spasmodic (calms the tummy), relaxing, safe for children
PEPPERMINT: one of the best carminative herbs, decreases excess gas, stimulates bile (helps the body digest fat)
Living with IBS puts a dark cloud of potential tummy trouble over times in your life that are meant to be carefree and enjoyable; dinners out, travelling, parties, etc. What will set my gut off? Will I have access to a private bathroom when/if it does? Will everyone notice?
