To ease abdominal discomfort after a heavy meal, drink a cup of chamomile or peppermint tea.
These herbs have a carminative action which means they relieve wind, soothe intestinal spasm and pain by relaxing intestinal muscle and sphincters.
I came to see Sandra after having issues with my period. For a good few months I had lost it completely and then it was quite unpredictable. I had actually been to many different types of practitioners and thought I would try seeing a herbalist to see if it could help resolve my issues. Sandra was amazing from our first session together, practical and very knowledgeable. She seemed positive that she could help which was extremely reassuring. Having now taken the herbs for 4 months now, I have got regular periods again and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Sandra is fabulous and I couldn’t recommend her more highly. Herbs are incredible and I feel I have only touched the surface of their amazing healing abilities.
I was diagnosed with IBS 3 years ago and I came to see Sandra as I was suffering with severe bloating and constipation. I had so many test at the doctors, but aside for a mild sugar sensitivity, I was told that this was ‘one of those things that women get’. As a last resort, I’d heard of Sandra through word of mouth and was hopeful but not overly optimistic.
Working with Sandra has transformed my life.
Something which may seem like a minor issue to some can soon turn into a daily struggle of huge discomfort and low confidence. I was so bloated on some days that I looked 4 months pregnant and I struggled to fit into my clothes. After 1 month of taking herbal medicine my symptoms disappeared . I couldn’t actually believe it – I thought they were likely to return. I continued to take the herbal medicine and now, dare I say it, my symptoms haven’t returned. Working with Sandra has been so amazing – the IBS and bloating seems like a distant memory. I am so grateful to her for assessing me and prescribing with herbs. I can’t thank her enough to be honest…. Some days I still can’t believe that I feel like myself again!
I know a lot of women have IBS and I would highly recommend Sandra. I trust her 100%, she is very knowledgeable and experienced in her field. She also makes you feel at ease no matter what issue you may be having. I feel very grateful to have had such a postive experience…my life has improved tenfold!
