The health of your gut speaks volumes for your overall health. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), it is believed that food is processed by the stomach organ-meridian (OM), where it is broken down into useful (‘pure’) and waste (‘impure’) components. The useful portion is directed towards the Spleen organ-meridian system, where it is transformed into usable energy, qi, while the waste portions are brought to the Small and Large intestines for excretion.
For practitioners of TCM, the consumption of digestive tonic herbs is key to ensuring harmony between the Stomach, Spleen and other organ-meridians in the body. This method allows a more natural approach to digestive problems such as bloating, indigestion, constipation, or abdominal pain.
Such problems are treated in this manner in order to improve the breakdown of food, uptake, and transformation into nutrients and qi, and the elimination of waste. Additionally, adaptogens, non-toxic plants that help the body relieve stress, possess healing properties that have been used in TCM to stabilize the gut’s microbiome. Whether it is to cure an infection, a desire to lose weight, or to simply detoxify, these flower adaptogens are the perfect solution.
If you are looking for a natural way to detoxify your liver, try the Qi rose tea. The Shangri-la rose is known as a diuretic, which means it can increase urination and speed the release of toxins from your body. Moreover, the rose infusion helps to cultivate the microflora in the intestines and fight infection with its probiotic properties, ensuring a healthy gut ecosystem. Its benefits can even help relieve digestive issues such as constipation, indigestion, bloating or diarrhea. It is recommended to consume this in moderation (a maximum of 3 cups per day). Just like the rose tea, the lotus tea also aids in the release of toxins from the body.
Additionally, it helps to facilitate the absorption of nutrients by triggering the
secretion of gastric and digestive juices in the intestine. And lastly, chrysanthemum tea is effective for easing digestion, especially after a
greasy meal. High in vitamin B, this tea is highly beneficial for losing weight as it stimulates the stomach to remove fatty toxins from the body. This powerful tea can also help ease pain from indigestion and nausea.
TCM offers a natural alternative to curing your digestive problems. By unleashing the power of these adaptogens (super herbs), the flow of qi throughout the body stabilizes. Research has shown that a healthy gut brings about positive ramifications to one’s overall health.
