1. General Digestive Support

This protocol is intended for those with occasional mild digestive systems of any kind.

It is also beneficial for those without digestive issues, as a supportive preventative medicine protocol. Ayurveda says that most dis-ease begins in the gut, so the more proactive we are in supporting this vital, intricate system, the less likely we will experience imbalance and disease. To increase the effectiveness of this protocol, consider integrating some additional Ayurvedic guidelines: Emphasize: eating fresh cooked whole foods as much as possible; spicing your food to help make it more easily digestible; aim to eat at the same time each day, with the largest meal being midday, when your digestion is strongest.

CCF Tea - Banyan Botanicals 

This simple tea is uniquely effective at calming a wide range of acute mild to moderate digestive symptoms (gas, bloating, acid indigestion, nausea), as well as helping to prevent them from recurring if consumed on a daily basis. Think of it like a multi-vitamin for your gut! The 3 seeds balance energy patterns in your mind-body, tone the entire digestive tract, and support your body's natural ability to detox. Consume 1-3 cups/day or as needed.

Organic Ghee - Banyan Botanicals 

Ghee has an exceptionally high smoke point, so is recommended for your primary cooking oil and anywhere you would normally use butter. It also has a unique affinity for nourishing the gut microbiome and gently stoking your digestive fire/strength (AKA agni). This cultured, organic selection is like a nectar to your whole mind-body system.

 

Trifal - Ayush Herbs

Please take without food, before going to bed. This blend of 3 dried and powdered fruits are a powerhouse for your digestive system, and entire mind-body. They work together to help balance energy patterns, promote easeful daily bowel movements, and maintain or restore your gut's ecosystem integrity. This formula is also high in beneficial antioxidants. Take 1 capsule before bed each night. It is a good idea to take regular breaks from all herbs unless advised otherwise by your doctor/practitioner.

2. Kapha Digestive Support

This protocol can support people experiencing slow metabolism or occasional heaviness after eating, as well as undigested food or mucous in their stool, and/or slow stool transit.
