It is often said, “a healthy gut is a healthy mind,” and these days, many people recognise that a well-functioning DIGESTIVE SYSTEM is integral to our overall well-being.
Hormonal fluctuations in perimenopause and menopause can affect our gut as well as everything else! Women may report feelings of heartburn, gas, bloating, sluggish digestion, and generally feeling uncomfortable in the gut. Intolerances to certain foods may become a new issue for some women.
The most common complaints seem to be heartburn, gas/bloating, and sluggish bowels. Of course, all this can result from other factors as well, such as a poor diet high in processed foods and lacking in adequate fibre, smoking, high alcohol intake, and inactivity. For someone who is active and eating a nutritional, well-balanced diet, digestive problems appearing around the transition to menopause are likely to be the result of hormone changes.
There are many Essential Oils that can help the gut to function well. These include:
• Black Pepper
• Digestive Blend
• Metabolic Blend
• Gi Cleansing Formula
• Probiotic Defense Formula
• Digestive Enzyme Complex
DIGESTIVE BLEND is a blend of Ginger, Peppermint, Caraway, Coriander, Anise, Tarragon, and Fennel Essential Oils, and supports and maintains overall digestive health.
As a blend, these oils are generally calming to the digestive system but can also act as digestive stimulants and can help to eliminate harmful pathogens causing digestive symptoms.
TIP: A little-known use of The DIGESTIVE BLEND will be helpful at those times of the year when seasonal threats are high: just one drop applied to the bridge of the nose can help to alleviate congestion.
