The Healing Power of Your Gut

Are you one of the thousands of people who set New Year’s Resolutions (with all good intentions of course), but then life gets busy, and you struggle to follow through?
And you keep waking up each morning saying to yourself “today’s the day I’m going to start”!
But then the daily grind hits you and at the end of the day, you realise you didn’t start after all.
Do you know why New Year’s Resolutions don’t work?
Because you haven’t set specific and meaningful goals that you can stick to.
And since you’re probably feeling a bit sluggish after all the good times over Christmas and New Year’s, it can be even harder to think about a plan and find the motivation to follow it through.
That’s where we come in at Herbs Online Shop.
We have designed for you a 2023 New Year Protocol to help you:
Why treat gut health first?
If you have “leaky gut syndrome” which the majority of people do, it means that your intestinal barrier may be impaired, which leaks toxins into your bloodstream.
Food is therefore not properly digested and nutrients are not absorbed the way they should be, you may find a whole array of symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain, indigestion and food sensitivities. If left untreated, all of this contributes to inflammation in the bloodstream, leading to other chronic health conditions such as SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), autoimmune disease, celiac disease, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome and so much more.
Many people wonder why their weight loss diets don’t work, even if they’ve been on them for years – it’s because their gut health has been left untreated.
So we believe it’s important for you to follow Step 1 and treat your gut health – FIRST!
Order our Gut Mend Powder, which is specially formulated to relieve symptoms and discomfort such as bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, inflammation, burping, and reflux. Take 5g twice daily for 30 days and see how your symptoms improve. It’s a lovely blend of L-glutamine, Slippery Elm, Manuka Honey and more… It tastes so good, you can make it into a paste and eat it off your spoon! Or add a scoop on top of your breakfast and mix well.
This particular remedy will help you to stop reaching for synthetic over-the-counter products.
You also want to be taking a high-strength specific probiotic, such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Boulardii) to lower stomach acid by killing H. pylori and correcting your pH levels. It is particularly helpful with reflux. A strong Probiotic such as this helps to maintain digestive balance and restores and maintains healthy gut flora. Take 1 to 2 capsules a day.
Have you got enough Zinc? We don’t get that much Zinc in our diets anymore, so taking a regular supplement like our Zinc Drops will help to support your immune function and bring it back to balance.
And whilst your doing that, add your Vitamin D drops to it as well. Vitamin D also helps to maintain a healthy immune system and support strong healthy bones and muscles. Vitamin D is necessary for your mental and physical health.
Taking these supplements while you are on the gut mend part of the protocol will assist and support you in the right way.
Then you can work your way to Stage 2 – Weight Loss.

Hopefully by then, you’ll already be seeing some marked improvement in your gut health and we’ll be very excited to see you to the next stage.
