Trip to A. Vogel so rewarding
A.Vogel Herbal Remedies are a brand that I trust, love and recommend. And now I love them even more after visiting their facilities in Scotland. I met the people behind the scenes who bring these wonderful remedies to us.
Many of them have been the company for more than 20 years, and everyone I met takes pride in the role they play. You can feel their passion and enthusiasm, the end result is a fresh herbal product that we can trust.
At a training session Nutritionist Alison Cullen asked if we actually sit down for every meal, every single meal? Do we always sit straight? Do we chew for at least twenty chews? And do we have a bowel movement every day? Be honest, she said, and few in the room could put up their hand. Without a healthy digestion we have nothing, she said.
She showed us a trial where people who didn't chew sufficiently all ate more than the people who did. Could be the answer to your weight problem?
She spoke about the importance of dealing with constipation, because if we don't have regular/daily bowel movements toxins can recirculate to the liver. These toxins can cause headaches, tiredness, brain fog, and skin problems. She said that improving bile production and flow could relieve constipation in some cases. A.Vogel Digestisan can aid flow of bile and support liver/gallbladder function aiding peristalsis and improving bowel function, even if you have had your gallbladder removed.
If you suffer from alternating constipation and diarrhoea then Alison suggested that you deal with the constipation first.
Alison pointed out that a sluggish liver during the menopause can be the reason why some women experience feelings of anger, irritability, frustration, and also wake frequently during the night. Some women are put on medication for these symptoms whereas a couple of months of Milk Thistle Complex could do the job, and save a marriage!
I also learned that digestive bloating during the menopause can be the result of dropping oestrogen levels. Oestrogen loves water and the reduction in Oestrogen levels decreases the amount of water in the large intestine which can mean slower transit time, and bloating. Yarrow Complex can help reduce symptoms of bloating.
