Apple Cider Vinegar
Is your digestion a little sluggish? Maybe you have gas and bloating or a bit of heart burn after meals? This could be due to a hidden food sensitivity caused by leaky gut syndrome. It could be because of too little stomach acid. It could also be because the intestines are moving too slowly.
Don’t just treat the symptoms. Make an appointment with a naturopathic doctor to get to the root of these symptoms!
Naturopathic doctors synthesize the best of conventional and natural medicine to address your health concerns. We use a holistic understanding of the root causes of disease, a wide range of diagnostic techniques, and a blend of nutritional, energetic, herbal and pharmacologic therapies to optimize health.
While you are searching for the underlying root causes, consider this yummy digestive stimulant. My friend and colleague, Rose Paisley, shared this recipe with me.
In a Mason jar combine:
Shake and drink ¼ – ½ tsp (a small swig) before each meal. Store in refrigerator and make a fresh batch every week or two. Have a swig of this stimulant, or plain apple cider vinegar, or lemon water, before every meal.
If you have any inflammation in the throat or stomach, this might cause some uncomfortable burning on the way down. If this is the case for you, then don’t use vinegar until the inflammation has resolved.
