Did you know that bloating, gas, indigestion, acid reflux, heartburn and burping are not normal body functions? (I didn’t until listening to Dr. Bob, a homeopathic M.D., on the radio). These symptoms are a result of a poor American diet. Due to the nature of the American diet we begin to decrease the enzymes in our body by a dramatic amount, in part from cooking our food at high temperatures, using preservatives in our food, adding wax to our produce, and so on…thus leading to improper functioning of our digestive system, which leads to the above symptoms and if not corrected, could lead to more serious complications .
So how do we begin to regain our health and eliminate these symptoms? We need to make healthier food choices and supplement with a digestive aid that allows for proper breakdown of food and work toward replacing and restoring enzymes back into the body. These should come from natural sources not synthetic ones.
Di-Gize is a blend that relieves digestive problems including indigestion, heartburn, gas, and bloating. It helps fight Candida as it kills and digests parasite infestation. This blend consists of the following:
- Tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus): is antiseptic and combats intestinal parasites and urinary tract infections. It is antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, anti-infectious and prevents fermentation.
- Ginger (Zingiber officinale): has been traditionally used to combat nausea and gastrointestinal fermentation. It is antispasmodic, antiseptic, and helps to calm and alleviate indigestion.
- Peppermint (Mentha piperita): is one of the most highly regarded herbs for improving digestion and combating parasites. It relaxes the smooth muscles of the intestinal tract and promotes peristalsis. It kills bacteria, yeasts, fungi and mold.
