Herbs for Vibrant Health really means, “Do you want to have more energy at the end of the day?”
The most common complaint from people is that they don’t have enough time or energy.
Herbal wisdom offers us remedies that shore up our vitality by enhancing digestion.The body spends a tremendous amount of energy to ensure that we digest our food.
Do you remember the last time you ate a large meal and felt like taking a nap afterwards? Your body was putting its energy into digestion and you didn’t have any left. It is a common experience: Eat a nice, big, tasty lunch and then by 2:00 you just feel like lying your head down on your desk or couch. Or maybe a nap isn’t anywhere in the realm of what is possible so coffee and sugar are the easiest thing to reach for. Sound familiar?
Herbs don’t take care of everything, but they can help you to digest your lunch, so that you feel better in the afternoon. Vibrant health is really just about feeling better, don’t you think?
Less than optimum digestion not only promotes daily fatigue but can contribute to a whole host of chronic ailments including arthritis, allergies, PMS and nutritional deficiencies.
