Herbal medications can often be as effective as conventional ones. Indigestion is a condition where this comparison really stands out, as there are many herbs that can help with these issues. Teas that are herbal based have been used for centuries for this exact benefit. Newer trends include using infusions made of herbs and the best thing about those plants is that they can be grown in our backyard, without too much effort. Chamomile and peppermint are among the most popular ones among people growing their own herbs.
- Effective against diarrhea, nausea and gas, Chamomile can be grown from seed or transplants.
- Fennel thrives in full sun, and when it goes to seed, its seeds can be collected and used.
- Easy growing peppermint has a soothing effect on the digestive tract and on the muscles of an upset stomach.
“Infusions use parts of a plant, usually flowers and leaves, that are steeped in hot water for a few minutes or longer”
