Ingredients Offer Relief & Long Term Support
In my clinical practice, I have used herbal/nutraceutical blends to provide both acute relief from digestive discomfort such as nausea, heartburn and bloating, as well as to provide long term support by strengthening and regulating digestive function, promoting better absorption of nutrients, boosting immunity and increasing antioxidant activity. As a result, I have witnessed many patients regain their health by strengthening the very foundation of total body nourishment.
Health Issues Can Be Linked To Poor Digestion
When our digestive system becomes damaged over time through improper diet, oxidative stress, emotional stress, heavy metal and toxin overload, parasites and bacteria, and more, then our immunity and overall vitality is compromised. Unfortunately, a sluggish, unhealthy environment in our digestive tract can create an open invitation for pathogens to gather and multiply, often creating seemingly unrelated symptoms in other parts of the body. However, there is hope because many of the common health conditions that plague us today can be improved by helping the gastrointestinal system regain balance with digestive enhancing herbs and nutraceuticals.
Natural Blends Improve Digestive Health
Because the digestive system plays such a critical role in our overall health and enjoyment of life, I developed a multi-dimensional digestive formula that integrates traditional herbal remedies and modern nutraceuticals to comprehensively strengthen and improve digestive health.
This unique formula contains a synergistic blend of “warming” herbs used for millennia to promote digestive health, as well as clinically researched for their digestive strengthening benefits. This unique formula includes the following herbal and mushroom blends and minerals:
- Integrative Asian Digestive Blend: Pomegranate seed, lesser galangal root extract, pepper fruit, cinnamon powder and Chinese cardamom extract.
- Traditional Chinese Herbal Digestive Blend: Tangerine fruit, licorice root, ginger root, bamboo root and sacred lotus seed extract
- Mushroom Blend (Organically Grown): Hericium, Maitake and Poria.
- Digestive Enzyme Support Blend: Amylase, alpha-galactosidase, protease, phytase, invertase and lipase.
- Essential Minerals for Aiding Digestive Health: Zinc and chromium.

Prebiotics & Probiotics
Certain supplements are especially important for digestive health, as they are often used to replace components of our digestion that are no longer functioning. Probiotics and prebiotics are two of the most important supplements you can take to help restore healthy digestion. Probiotics provide live strains of friendly flora to balance the bad bacteria in your gut – bacteria which, if unchecked, can contribute to chronic diarrhea, flatulence or constipation. Prebiotics, on the other hand, will ensure that your friendly florae are provided with the proper environment in which they can thrive.
Herbal support is probably the most helpful for restoring digestive strength. In my clinic, I like to use an integrative digestive tonic based on ancient Eastern digestive herbal formulas. It integrates herbs, medicinal mushrooms, digestive enzymes and minerals as well as other natural components to aid in treating the root causes of weak digestion, while simultaneously addressing common issues that result from such weakness.
The applications of this combination in enhancing digestion are comprehensive – it ignites, warms and supports the entire digestive tract. It also helps to redirect the digestive energy in the stomach downward, reducing belching, flatulence, occasional heartburn and fullness, and improving the absorption of vitamins and minerals from your food. You can even expect improvement in any number of conditions related to poor digestion – such as skin allergies, fatigue and retention of fluids.
Supplement Doses and Action Properties
Here are several of the key nutrients I recommend for keeping your digestive system strong and healthy. This protocol – accompanied by a balanced, organic diet and calming relaxation time whenever you can – is one of your best natural means of ensuring strong digestion, a healthy gut and an immune system functioning at its peak.
