Treating The Digestive System Part 2
Your digestive system is very sensitive to the rest of your body systems and can bee upset not just by what you put into your body but by how you feel and react to things.
The unpleasant condition of diarrhoea is characterised by frequent passing of watery stools. It may be acute (occurs suddenly as is short term) or chronic (continues over a long period). Symptoms of diarrhoea include stomach aches and cramps, flatulence, nausea and vomiting and in some bases headaches and piles. Traveller’s diarrhoea can also cause the sufferer to become very dehydrated; it recommended you drink a salt and sugar water solution every couple of hours to replenish the body of its lost minerals. Common causes of diarrhoea aside from “traveller’s tummy” include food poisoning, anxiety, excess alcohol and side effects of some prescription drugs such as antibiotics.
Essential oils that have the most antispasmodic effect on the intestinal tract and which also calm the nervous system, include the chamomile, ginger, sweet fennel and peppermint. The calming effects of lavender and neroli can also help.
