We are just ending the Spleen/Stomach time of year! I’ve started to do a tiny cleanse to balance out my digestive system and make sure I’m coming into fall with strong immunity! The gut is so so so important for a properly functioning immune system. I’ve also noticed little things like feeling sluggish, bloated, and having a low appetite. These are little messages, along with other hints like nausea, constipation/diarrhea, heartburn, etc. from your belly telling you something is off!
Here are a few easy things I’ve been doing to optimize my digestive system:
〰️taking magnesium (400mg daily)
〰️drinking 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar (you want to find one that says “with the mother” on the label!) diluted in a glass of water (drink this with a straw... this can be hard on the enamel of your teeth. Or rinse your mouth well after!)
〰️using Chinese herbs to stay balanced
〰️& belly acupuncture!
