If you've read my story and blog, you would know that I've struggled with gut health. Many of us have been hard on our digestive system for years, and it's only getting worse. Not only are the foods and drinks we consume playing it's part, but stress and anxiety cause damage to the gut. We are being exposed to toxic chemicals daily from the environment to personal care products. This is causing our bodies to go on toxic overload and making us sick.
Did you know that using essential oils for stomach health can be beneficial? Even if the damage is already done, you can learn how to heal yourself naturally with essential oils.
As some of the most intriguing and powerful components of herbal medicine, essential oils can be used as a tool for gut health to help heal the damaged gut. As someone who has lived with Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth(SIBO) and Histamine Intolerance, Essential oils played a direct role in my recovery and maintenance. A friend was looking for her own wellness solutions and found Therapeutic oils. After seeing how the oils worked, she shared them with me. When I started to feel improvements in my health, physically and mentally I became a believer. This is when I began finding any research or information regarding these natural remedies and sharing it with others.
Leaky Gut Syndrome is another common gastrointestinal problem. You may have heard of it as it's been gathering attention lately. Research continues to link it to a number of other health issues and diseases.
Optimal digestion only occurs in the relaxed “rest and digest” parasympathetic state of the nervous system. When the body is in stress, it drops into the sympathetic fight-or-flight state to flee from danger and shuts down all functions that are not necessary to survival, including the digestive system.
Our digestive system is the primary channel for carrying healing nutrients and energy into the body. Unfortunately for many of us, the damage of processed foods, GMOs, chemically-treated water, environmental toxins, increased stress, and not eating in the parasympathetic state have decrease optimal function of our digestive systems.
But even if healing the digestive system is partially blocked or closed, the body does have some back doors such as the sense of smell, known as the olfactory system, and the skin.
Essential oils have the ability to open these back doors, bypassing a compromised digestive system to offer the healing we’ve been looking for. Essential oils stimulate the parasympathetic “rest-and-digest” state.
Your skin, your largest organ, is relatively permeable to fat-soluble substances like essential oils. The molecules of essential oils are so small that they can absorb in your skin into the capillaries. It only takes 22 seconds for the molecules to hit the brain, 2 minutes for the oils to be absorbed into the bloodstream and 20 minutes to every cell in your body.
By triggering the shift into parasympathetic state, all downstream digestive function improves optimizing digestion, absorption, and nutrients necessary for healing.
Personally, I used oils for various aspects of my symptoms caused by my damaged gut. You not only have to resolve the digestive issues, but also the stress and ailments which follow.
