Tips for Healthy Digestion

There are numerous reasons why a person might have digestive issues, ranging from stress to disease. It is important to discover the cause and seek medical treatment if necessary. Essential oils can assist with various stages of recovering a healthy digestion process and other issues with the digestive tract.

Every body function is connected to the gut. A large part of the immune system is housed there, crucial neurotransmitters are produced, and nutrient assimilation happens. Repairing the gut repairs the mind and body!

Oils that help support your natural digestive processes are Lemon, Peppermint, Ginger, Clove, Wild Orange, Grapefruit, Frankincense, Tarragon, Lemongrass, Dill, Thyme, Juniper Berry, Chamomile, Rosemary, Black Pepper, Clary Sage, Lavender, Copaiba, Coriander, Fennel, Caraway, and Anise, and of course DigestZen. You’ll want to get some Veggie Caps too, in case you don’t like the flavor of an oil.

The Lifelong Vitality Pack contains many of these oils & herbs so they are super supportive on their own as well. The 2 most important things you can do for digestive function is digestive enzymes (TerraZyme) and probiotics (PB Assist). Other great products are Peppermint Capsules, DigestZen Softgels, and DigestTabs.

A great place to start (and inexpensive) is as simple as putting Lemon oil in your daily water! Drinking half of your body weight in ounces is paramount to a healthy functioning body, and adding Lemon oil is so beneficial for cleansing the gut, soothing the stomach linings, and amplifying the detoxification processes.

Protocol Benefits:

  • Tames discomfort like gas, bloating, and indigestion
  • Decreases Inflammation
  • Promotes internal tissue healing
  • Encourages long-term mending and health

Time Frame:
Use Tummy Tamer on an ongoing basis. Use the Inflammation Challenger and the Long-term repair during separate 10-day sprees.

1. Long-term Repair
GI Cleansing Complex: Purge the gut of Candida, fungus overgrowth, and unhealthy bacteria by taking 1 GX Assist softgel with each meal for 10 days. Start with only 1 a day, and work your way to 3.

Bone Broth: Make homemade bone broth or buy from the health food store. Sip warm in a mug morning and night to nourish the gut. It’s wise to cut inflammatory foods during this process as well (dairy, sugar, gluten, etc)

2. Inflammation Challenger
Frankincense & Lemongrass:
Take 2 drops each in a capsule 1-3 times a day. Only use Lemongrass internally for 10 days at a time (taking a 2-week break before continuing).

Helichrysum: Drink 2 drops in water or a capsule, or rub outside of stomach to ease inflammation and promote internal tissue healing.

3. Tummy Tamer
Digestive Blend: Drink 1-3 drops DigestZen in water or in a capsule, or rub 2 drops (or use Tamer, the kid’s blend) on the outside of the stomach for any stomach discomfort.

Probiotics: Take 1 PBAssist+ (or 1 packet PBAssist Jr) in the morning or evening on an empty stomach to restore gut flora only when not using GX Assist.

Digestive Enzymes: Take 1-3 TerraZyme capsules with each meal to experience easier digestive function.
