I have always had digestive issues. You may see the word detox and cleansing a lot on my site because this is how I went from ulcerative colitis to present day – no colitis.
I remember buying book after book trying to understand what foods were good for colitis, acid reflux and constipation. But, every book had a different suggested meal plan, a different protocol and I was confused.
Finally, I took pieces of each book and applied them to my life.
+ eliminate foods then slowly add them back in
+ consume foods that would reduce inflammation in my body such as nettle tea, dandelion and aloe vera
+ make smoothies that were easy to digest
+ make bone broth and sip this bone broth throughout the day (great for the digestive tract)
+ use essential oils to calm my nervous system and support healthy digestion ( I love using doTERRA lemon, peppermint and lavender).
After a week of stress (yes, I may be a health coach but I am human) and a day of Thanksgiving feasting it was time to give my digestion a rest.
Today I am going to cleanse.
This is simple.
To make your digestive distress smoothie, simply combine the following ingredients:
Digestive Distress Smoothie : Smoothie with Aloe Vera
1 1/2 cups dairy free milk
1 ounce aloe vera
1 cup spinach
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoons chia seeds
1/2 sweet potato
dash of cinnamon
dash of maca
1 teaspoon camu camu
sweeten with stevia
Feel free to add bee pollen, shredded coconut but remember if you can keep your meals simple – even your smoothies, your digestion will beging to repair.
