Herbs to Rev Your Digestive Fire!

Why warm digestion? Well, one, it’s winter, and it’s cold! If you’re someone who is always piling on the scarves and sweaters and your fingers and toes are cold, you may want to consider these herbs that can help warm your digestion. 

To ensure healthy and optimal digestion, we ‘ve got to support our digestive ‘fire’. This fire (called agni in Ayurveda) is all about the power of our digestive organs' to process and absorb what we eat while also burning off waste products. When we have a strong digestive fire, we are able to easily digest food and absorb its nutrients. If we have a weak digestive fire, our body won’t digest food well, leaving undigested particles behind that create inflammation in the body. 

This Inflammation can show up as:

  • Hunger
  • Bloating
  • Indigestion
  • Intestinal cramps
  • Constipation
  • Gassiness
  • Slow digestion
  • Heaviness after a meal
  • Sluggish bowels
  • Bulky stool
  • Feeling cold
  • Sweet craving
  • Stimulant craving

Immune Stimulant Herbs, Antivirals, Antibacterials: What The Heck Are They & When Do I Need Them

As we are in the midst of cold and flu season, I figured we'd do a quick little overview of what antiviral and antimicrobial herbs are, what they can do for you and your body and how it's really nice to be able to use plants as medicine instead of relying consistently on harsh pharmaceuticals and such that can later be put into our water streams, our soils and all of those things. I truly believe that using plants as medicine is one of those great ways that we can make our earth a better place.

So, what is an Immune Stimulant?

Immune stimulants help your body resist infection during the beginning stages of an illness, or potential infection, and they’re also helpful throughout the duration of an illness. They help to stimulate white blood cell activity, and are typically taken for a short time to address acute illness and infection. They’re also helpful during times that you know people around you are getting sick, or if you’re about to travel, back to school time,...
