Plants that help digestion

Instead of suffering, let’s use the plants
For starters, let’s try to understand the digestive system better so that we can treat it with plants and spices. In general, we can imagine our digestive system as a long tube in which all the necessary actions are taken to use the food entering our bodies and finally to remove the remaining waste.
It is common to think that an average of 30 tons of food is entered into our bodies during the average life (imagine 5 huge trucks standing by your house waiting to be eaten). This huge amount can erode the digestive system.
The poor quality of the food entering our bodies in the modern era, and the fact that it lacks the essential ingredients of fresh, nutritious food, are other reasons to keep the digestive system intact.
What to do?
In an age when serious diseases such as cancer become frighteningly common, it is very important to maintain the quality of our diet and the health of the digestive system so that it can maintain its function and nourish the body properly. Plants have different mechanisms that affect the systems and organs in our bodies.
From the moment our bodies discover a bitter plant, a process of over-digestion begins. This is because bitter taste usually serves as a warning signal to our bodies that the likelihood of damage from this food rises and needs to be cleared quickly. As a result, these plants affect the stomach and the acidic and enzymatic decomposition, the intestine at its level of movement and absorption capacity, and the liver produces more bile immediately and even drives them out as part of the desire to dismantle and clean up the bitter intruder.
Among the bitter plants that positively affect our bodies are artichoke, dandelion and turmeric leaves. Turmeric which is also a bitter plant may be in addition to kitchen spice, improves digestion and increases absorption efficiencies, turning fats in addition to many other features that it has and is highly recommended. It should be noted that those who suffer from excessive acidity it is recommended to consume bitter plants in small amounts because they may affect and raise the level of acidity in the stomach.
Plants that dilate blood vessels in the intestine and improve absorption
In order to increase absorption, nourish the body in an improved way, prevent stomach swelling, gases and even treat constipation I recommend consuming a lot of moss or its prepared mixture of zatar, and drink zucchini infusion on a regular basis. These plants increase the absorption area in the intestines, resulting in increased and accelerated absorption of nutrients, minerals, antioxidants, vitamins and more.
The result of using these plants is reduced intake of undigested food to the colon, while reducing the production of gases that are a by-product of bacteria that break down food in the colon.
Plants mitigating diarrhea
Blush, cinnamon, eucalyptus and green tea are plants that contain disinfectants but also substances that cause the colon to recuperate. These substances are called tannins (not of Hamat Gader …) and are also found in pomegranate bark, which can be boiled, and drink the intestines during diarrhea, relief, disinfection and recovery.
It is important to remember that diarrhea is a positive response of the body. His goal is to clean up and evacuate the intruder and his damage. In this way the colon absorbs little water and the feces becomes aqueous and is washed out. Indeed, this is a positive reaction, although it is also dangerous, since it can lead to dehydration, damage to absorption over time, and a weakening of the body. Therefore, it is important to keep an eye on the pulse in severe cases and contact your doctor accordingly.
Plants to treat gastric ulcers
Some plants help the digestive system to treat stomach ulcers. The leading plant is licorice. You can get his crushed roots and prepare a decoction: 2 grams a day boil with a liter of water for ten minutes, put in a thermos and drink all day, so for a month straight.
This will help to watch stomach ulcers and protect them against acidity. It is best to combine it after a few weeks with plants that restore wall cells such as chili, although some think that because of its sharpness, it damages the stomach. On the contrary, chili helps to heal stomach ulcers.
Plants to treat abdominal pain
Anise – It is recommended to eat the seeds, at a dose of a teaspoon a day. Anise is a plant that treats abdominal cramps and abdominal pain resulting from increased bowel movement when it wants to remove infection. Pineapple has ethanol (which is also found in preserves and nuts) that relaxes the muscles of the intestinal wall and moderates contractions (a plant that is used extensively to treat abdominal pain in small children)
Plants to treat constipation
Prepare the following mixture of plants (in equal quantities): chamomile flowers, anise seeds, sorrel root, mint leaves and dandelion root. Boil a tablespoon of the mixture in a liter of water for ten minutes, place the water in the thermos and drink the whole day a little each time. So every day for two months.
In this way we can combine several mechanisms together for effective and concentrated treatment of re-motility in the intestines, improved digestion and good exits. I believe that we are our own best doctors, and that our kitchen can become a kind of family health fund with the help of the right plants. For health
