Carl had a problem (other than insisting on being called the "King of Suffolk"). Severals bouts of diverticulitis had won him a trip to the A&E and a life time prospect of eating exclusively white rice and cooked spinach; he was clearly in trouble. So when he kindly requested a bespoke natural blend to help with his IBS (yes, he had that too) I was more than happy to help. After many tweaks and a long scouring into IBS herbal remedies (King Carl knows what he likes...), I had finally found the perfect blend to bring him a well deserved tummy TLC. More good news for Carl is that I always insist on all my ingredients being certified organic. This means my teas do not contain synthetic (human-made) pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. No genetically modified organism or irradiation ("Irradiation", you said? Yep, that's right, non-organic products can be irradiated to preserve them. Mmmmm, lovely.) Also it is hand packed from fresh by my own little hands in Dorking to ensure you'll get the freshest herbs possible. A labour of love really, but I don't think your tummy deserve any less, even if you are not "the King of Suffolk".
TOP 5 NATURAL REMEDIES FOR YOUR TUMMY
Peppermint is one of the best proven reliefs for IBS, according to the NHS's own website: "Peppermint oil is the most effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome". This is why a 1/3 of my Happy tummy tea is made out of dried organic peppermint. This aside, peppermint tastes delicious:)
Meadowsweet is a gorgeous native wildflower which mainly grows in meadows (hence the name), so keep your eyes peeled for it if you go on a walk. Its pleasant flowery scent and its subtle aroma makes it the natural flavouring of choice for wine, beer and vinegar. It is a natural digestive aid and pain reliever. It has been found to decrease the amount of acid build up in the stomach and thus it has been used as a traditional remedy for digestive issues such as nausea, ulcers, heartburn, gastritis, indigestion, IBS and diarrhea.
ORGANIC CHAMOMILE FLOWERS
I love the familiar hearthy fragrance which diffuses in my house every time I open a bag of "fresh from the farm" Chamomile flowers. Needless to introduce its soothing properties but did you know that it also has anti-inflammatory qualities and can help relieve muscle spasms associated with intestinal disorders?
ORGANIC MARSHMALLOW ROOT
Althaea officinalis is an auspicious name for two reasons:
1. It means "to heal" in ancient Greek.
2. Egyptian used it to make sweet confection as a cure for sore throat whence those delicious fluffy squares got their name: Marshmallows!
Although this native flower is stunningly beautiful, it is the root which relieves pain associated with IBS and indigestion by lining the guts and stomach.
ORGANIC LEMON BALM
Lemon balm is part of the mint family and has a subtle herby-lemon scent. Used since antiquity for its calming and sedative effects, Lemon Balm is believed to improve symptoms of dyspepsia.
Another good news is that you can try them for 99p only! So give "Happy Tummy Tea" a try and let your guts decide :)
