Eat to heal: Using the bark to repair the root

This is an awesome breakfast option for people who suffer from:

  • abdominal cramps
  • bloating/excessive gas
  • eczema
  • constipation
  • pass mucus with their stool

Since the health of the mucus lining, especially that of the gut, is important for policing which substances are absorbed into your bloodstream, it is vitally important to nourish and reinforce it. ¬†Derived from the bark of the slippery-elm tree, this herb has been shown to neutralize acidity, protect mucous membranes and is a gentle way to keep “things” moving. ¬†

Slippery elm can easily be made into a tea, but you can also whip it into a little porridge.
