Digestion issues can be a symptom of too much stress; from life, food choices, depletion of nutrient reserves and/or environmental toxins. Too much stress can cause all kinds of health conditions such as irritable bowels, inflamed bowels, colitis, Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, chronic fatigue — and these are just some symptoms of stress on the digestive system.

How to improve your digestion -

  • Make sure you are relaxed when you eat. Start by taking three deep breathes or say a prayer with love and thanks.  
  • When stressed eat foods which are easy to digest - soups, stews, rice congee 
  • Drink your nourishment if you are hungry and stressed or in a hurry. Such as soups,  fresh vegetable juice or a room temperature smoothie.


Our digestion physically keeps us fueled, nourished, and in part cleansed through the gallbladder, which helps eliminate toxins through our bowel movements, thus cleansing our colon. Our gallbladder is needed to secrete the bile that helps us digest our fats therefore using bitters such as dandelion root aids in fat metabolism. Bitter flavors also aid in Hydrochloric Acid (HCL) production necessary for protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism.





Metabolism is the breakdown and assimilation of nutrients from the food we eat.

  • Catabolism is the breakdown of nutrients received from the food we eat through enzymes and HCL secretion. 
  • Anabolism in the utilization of those nutrients

Catabolism fuels Anabolism

The five flavors are:  Bitter - Sour - Pungent - Sweet - Salty
Thermal Energetic: Cold - Cool - Neutral - Warm - Hot - Very Hot

All food and plants have more than one flavor, but there is always a predominate flavor. Example:

  • Peppermint's flavor is pungent and cooling bitter
  • Spearmint's flavor is a  pungent and warming bitter

Here is a list of some bitter herbs: fenugreek, orange and lemon peel, chamomile, dandelion greens and root, burdock root, turmeric root, Oregon grape root, barberry root, milk thistle seed, cascara sagrada, sage, and aloe vera...
