1) Ginger root
For hundreds of years, ginger has been used as a primary ingredient in digestive situations. I use it here as a group of four ingredients that balance earth, water, fire and air. I have had excellent results with this. Ginger is the fire element. Ginger root’s use for medicinal purposes traces all the way back to Chinese, Japanese and Indian practices during the 16th century. Easing an upset stomach and reducing nausea are two of the many traditional uses for ginger root. Enough scientific research exists to support ginger’s ability to help reduce nausea from chemotherapy treatments. Ginger contains more than 400 different compounds. Among these 400 are many fatty acids. Lipids, another name for fatty acids, make up between 3 percent and 8 percent of ginger. Specific lipids active in ginger root include the free fatty acids—palmcitic, oleic, linoleic and linolenic—as well as triglycerides and lecithin’s. These are in no way the harmful triglycerides or lipids. These actually help reduce the excess build- up of harmful substances in the system. In my opinion, I think ginger root powder can about help to digest anything. It seems particularly good for hiatal hernia sufferers. It seems to soothe the tissues and allow the stomach to drop into place easier. Remember however that this is a clinical observation of mine.
2) Marshmallow root
I use this because it supports the water element. I have used it extensively for kidney imbalances. The part it plays here is to soothe the stomach tissues.Marshmallow is most commonly used to treat sore throats and dry coughs. The Marshmallow plant, especially the leaves and roots, contains polysaccharides that have antitussive, mucilaginous, and antibacterial properties. Because of this, marshmallow has a soothing effect on inflamed membranes in the mouth, throat and stomach.
3) Slippery elm bark
Slippery Elm is a species of elm tree that has been used as an herbal remedy in North America for hundreds of years.It contains a substance called mucilage, which is a polysaccharide that becomes a gel when mixed with water. The mucilage comes from the inner bark of the tree and is a bit slippery and slimy. The mucilage does a good job of soothing and coating the mouth, throat, stomach, and intestines, causing much relief from things like Gastroesophogeal Reflux Disease (GERT), (Another misnomer for the hiatal hernia syndrome) Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis, diarrhea, diverticulitis, and Irritable BowelSyndrome (IBS). It supports the earth element.
Fennel relaxes the smooth muscle lining of the digestive tract (making it an antispasmodic). It is a tested remedy for gas, acid stomach, gout, cramps, colic and spasms. It is a tested remedy for gas, acid stomach, gout, cramps, colic and spasms. Fennel seed is good for food poisoning. Excellent for obesity. It increases the flow of urine. It supports the air element. St. Hildegard von Bingen says it is one of the things that every person needs to take every day to maintain balance. I agree. It is perfect in this formula for its strong digestive abilities.
Serves to support the chief cells in the stomach for hydrochloric acid production.
Helps the pancreas in its very first stage. It balances the body’s inflammatory response.
7) Lipase, Amylase, & Protease
Digestive enzymes that allow the pancreas to perform fat, carbohydrate and protein breakdown respectively.
8) Green Papaya
Becomes a bioavailable form of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. This form of hydrochloric acid replacement never creates any stomach burning like other hydrochloric acid supplements can. Yet it provides the same positive results. Hydrochloric acid breaks down in the body and becomes alkaline forming. Hydrochloric acid is the only beneficial acid produce in the body. Therefore, it is very important to our life.
9) De-Glycerized Licorice
DGL is a special form of licorice that has a very soothing effect on the diaphragm.
10) Sodium Bicarbonate
Sodium bicarbonate Is normally produced by the pancreas and is a valuable pH buffer.
11) Potassium Bicarbonate
Supports the functional pathway between the adrenals and the pancreas.
12) Magnesium Orotate
13) Zinc Orotate
Crucially needed by the stomach in a later stage of digestion and by the pancreas for the Islets of Langerhans.
14) Chromium Picolinate
Vitally important to the pancreas. Regulates production of insulin.
