the herbalist corner:
The holidays are quickly approaching and it’s time to prepare not just a delicious feast for friends and family, but also it’s time to prep our digestive tracts for the enormous amount of festive treats coming our way. One simple way to strengthen our digestive fire, or Agni as it is known in Ayurveda, is to prepare our stomachs before a meal for the food to come. This can look like incorporating bitter foods such as dandelion greens, radishes, or cranberries about 15 minutes before eating any of your meals, or by making an Ayurvedic inspired digestive appetizer by sprinkling grated ginger and salt on a small slice of lime- click here for the recipe. The bitter taste of these foods help to stimulate bile production and to strengthen and tonify the digestive system. Breeze Botanical stores carry various products formulated to support digestion and to mitigate those unwanted stomach pains after a larger meal. We carry Sun God Medicinals tinctures, elixirs, and tea blends of these supporting herbs formulated to support a variety of digestive ailments, and as always, our trained staff is always here to help guide you on your healing journey. We also offer private one-on-one consultations with our clinical herbalist for more in depth inquires- click here to learn more! Happy Holidays from the Breeze team!
