Nature's Antacids (Tums. . . Nexium)St. Johns Work and Meadowsweet

Meadowsweet is an astringent (toning and tightening of tissues) herb that is commonly used for excessive diarrhea, ulcers, pain, stomach aches, fevers, INDIGESTION, heart burn, GERD, and gout. It’s considered one of nature’s antacids. It came used as an alternative to TUMS or Nexium. It has an affinity to the small intestines assisting in healthy production of the digestive hormone #secretin to release bicarbonates to balance hyperacidity (#heartburn).

St.John’s Wort brings attention to many issues of the nervous and digestive systems via the Solar Plexus (nerve bundle behind the stomach) and is used by herbalists to help ease anxiety, tension, neuralgias, seasonal affective disorder, and indeed, mild to moderate depression.

It’s primary function is bringing balance between hyper and hypo acidity in the stomach. It’s has an influence on the parietal cells (controls the production of stomach acid HCL). St. John’ Wort is held as an excellent treatment for ulcerative colitis. #guthealth #guthealing #heartburn #GERD
