Digestive Care and Flower Essences

female belly | Balanced Body Care

Many people feel they have a connection with the image highlighted at the top of this post. Clients are not always eager and ready to share specifics regarding their digestion. Some may even not really pay attention to how often they “go”, and then wonder why they are feeling they way there are feeling – this can definitely lead to an “OUT OF ORDER” situation.

The sensations and sounds of a grumbling digestive system can lead to worry, concern or even embarrassment for some folks. Those “noises” can also be your body’s way of capturing your attention and can indicate there is an emotional component underlying it all. Maybe that feeling of a “knot in your stomach”?

Remembering that the “upset stomach” is merely a symptom, it is always best not to treat  the symptom, but to look for the cause. Many times digestive issues can have a link to emotions and more specifically anxiety. This can be anxiety about general life circumstances, or maybe a specific event, physically causing the “stomach upset”, constipation, over-eating or eating disorders, and more.
