Part 2… Gut Health and the part played by Carminative herbs

“All that humans need for health and healing has been provided by God in nature, the challenge of science is to find it.” Philippus Theophrastrus Bombast that of Aureolus ~ Paracelsus (1493-1541)

As we have often said, herbs have been around for thousands of yeas and have been used for health and healing. We are often asked “Where is the scientific proof that these herbs work?” Our reply is, look back in history and read of how scientists have for centuries being trying to harness the healing powers of herbs. What once were called “Old Wives Tales” are now shown to be true.

Some herbs are known as Carminative herbs. These herbs are known to relieve flatulance or colic by expelling gas. They also warm up the digestive tract, speed up and increase the thoroughness of digestion. These herbs include Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), and lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) and well as cardamom, dill, cumin and caraway seeds.

A healthy bowel makes for a happy healthy person. Happy healthy eating and herbing!

Much love

Sue and Christine
