Had too much on pancake day? A little charcoal on Ash Wednesday may help that stomach trouble.
As surely as Shrove Tuesday is followed by Ash Wednesday, so the excesses of pancake day might be treated with digestive charcoal.
Back in Victorian times charcoal biscuits were popular for easing stomach trouble. So, if you ate a few too many pancakes last night, they might do you some good too.
Charcoal has traditionally been used to absorb gases in the digestive system, relieving the discomfort caused by indigestion, wind and heartburn. It’s still used by many as an antidote to flatulence today.
Bragg’s began selling the sooty remedy baked into biscuits back in 1879, and still makes the recipe today, though you can now also buy charcoal capsules if you prefer. So, if you feel a little uncomfortable after a little light festivity, the old remedy may well be worth the investment
When i was going through a tough time I really appreciated Bio-Health’s St John’s Wort and I guess I’m a bit of a fan of the brand now.
They make 100% additive free herbal medicinal products as well as other herbal remedies and vitamin supplements.
We’re extending their range at GoodnessDirect with more herbals such as cinnamon bark, said to reduce stomach spasms, flatulence and menstrual cramps; celery seed, believed to benefit by eliminating water retention, reducing inflammation and regulating blood pressure; or melissa (lemon balm) leaf, traditionally favoured for nervous disorders such as depression, anxiety and palpitations.
Herbal remedies don’t pretend to replace medicines, but they are useful for everyday self-limiting conditions. Bio-Health ensure those who prefer natural solutions get the quality, safety and efficacy they rightly deserve.
Easy solutions for Candida The truth is there just aren’t many recipe books for Candida out there – and possibly none with 100 photographically illustrated recipes. In other words, nothing that makes dealing with Candida seem easy.
No books, that is, until Rebecca Richardson’s ‘Candida Can Be Fun!‘ came along. Her book is crammed with advice on food and shop brands and supplements – but mostly it’s full of colourful easy to follow recipes to help you get cracking on defeating Candida. (What’s more, Rebecca recommends our web site: goodnessdirect.co.uk as a resource for information and for purchasing many of the products mentioned in her book.)
Define Candida… If you still don’t know what Candida is, it is a yeast which destroys your gut’s friendly bacteria and becomes a fungus which invades the rest of your body. It can be dealt with simply through changing your diet and taking a range of supplements. However, most people feel that their life is over when they hear what they can’t eat (eg. sugar, fruit, nuts, wheat, gluten, preservatives, dairy and alcohol).
‘Candida Can Be Fun!’ contradicts that. It shows just how much you can do.
Rebecca Richardson suffered from Candida herself, first experiencing symptoms in her childhood, and when she found out what she couldn’t eat she cried too! But that led to the determination to write this book to SHOW you what you CAN eat to help other people who are all alone and suffering like she did, so that you can tell the Candida who is boss.
The book is also suitable for coeliacs, diabetics and ME sufferers.
Until the 31st May ‘Candida Can Be Fun!’ is on offer for £14.99 – that’s 25% less than the normal price, so buy now and take your chance to begin your fight back!
