Oh stomachs, how you can be so miserable, upset and all around moody. I don’t do anything too crazy or out there to keep my stomach happy and regulate my digestion, but there are a few tips I would love to share with you. The tips that I am going to share with you work for me and it’s all around a pretty simple routine! Now, lets have at it.
Fabulous scent. Chamomile is a fragrant and caffeine free tea that has been known to calm upset stomachs and alleviate menstrual cramps. I definitely think that chamomile is great for an upset stomach and it is much easier to take down than ginger ale or sugary sports drinks. I usually drink chamomile twice a day, once in the early morning and usually before bed. It’s quite calming to drink before bed, especially with soothing infused lavender.
3. COCONUT OIL
So, here is my favorite! I LOOOOOOOVE coconut oil. I use it for EVERYTHANG. I put it in my hair, on my skin (not my face though), on my nails, in my coffee and on my toast. You get the point. I heart coconut oil. Sure this is a fat and all fats in moderation. I either suck it up and down a tbsp of this in the morning or add it to my coffee. Once in awhile I use coconut oil as a cooking oil, but I prefer to just sneak it into my smoothies or coffee. I have been using coconut oil in my diet ever since I read that coconut oil has been found to fight bad bacteria.
4. WARM LEMON WATER
You’ve probably heard about this. It seems to be a trend. Celebrities looooooove to say that they wake up and drink warm lemon water. Well, I have to agree with them. I feel the digestive benefits from consistently drinking warm lemon water every morning. Lemons are rich in vitamin C and helps maintain the pH levels in your body. I drink this before my breakfast and so far so good!
