Foods that aid in digestion:
Ginger is a warming herb. It helps your body to produce enzymes. Enzymes, are an essential part of digestion. Ginger is also beneficial for breaking up mucus in the body. When digestion is compromised it is
common for mucus to line the digestive track as well as the respiratory track. Incorporating ginger in your
diet is a great way to support digestion.
Chamomile is a calming herb. It helps decrease stress which allows
the organs to relax. When we are stressed or when we internalize our emotions – our stomach and digestive organs tend to tighten up. When things are tight, blood is not able to circulate as well, and our digestive system will not be able to work properly
Mint is cooling and heating at the same time. It also helps increase circulation – which allows the digestive system to warm up or cool down if it needs. Mint is beneficial for diahrea, nausea, vomiting, as well as bloating.
Papaya is full of enzymes. These enzymes aid in digestion. It well often help to relieve bloating, acid reflux, stomach ache, etc.
How many of you have followed numerous diets, lost weight, and gained it back?
I know I have! After, yo-yo dieting for the first 24 years of my life - I finally understsnd yo-yo dieting and why diets don't work. Since then, I have learned a few things that have helped me to reach and maintain a healthy weight.
Why don't diets work?
Everyday we’re exposed to hundreds of toxins–from the food we eat, to the air we breathe. When our body is not strong enough to naturally release these toxins, it stores them in our fat cells. If you have weight to lose, more than likely your body is holding on to a lot of toxins.
What does that mean?
Diets can be a great tool to help you lose weight and gain a health. But here is the problem, there are a lot of fad diets out there that restrict calories and food groups. This leaves the body lacking vitamins, minerals, and other important nutrients it needs to release toxins. If you do achieve weight loss you will be more likely to gain it back because the body will be weak and the toxins will need a place to go - so they will return to the fat cells.
How do you lose weight and keep it off?
