I’m glad to hear that.

I’ve started taking the swedish bitters which are actually horrible tasting. Hopefully I’ll get used to them.

Believe it or not, most people usually get used to the bad taste. Personally, I’d rather take the bitters all day long than to have to go back to taking coconut oil by the spoonful, nothing on earth could be as bad as that was as far as I’m concerned.

If you’ve not been told how to take the bitters, the info is below.

Since the principle of digestive bitters is to stimulate the bitter receptors you only need to taste the bitterness of the herbs to start this process, therefore 1/2 of a dropper full on the back of the tongue after meals will be enough to do the job, regardless of what the label may say. No matter what you read from here on out, you will not need to purchase additional enzymes as long as you use Swedish Bitters. Remember that you’ll need to take them before or immediately following a meal – followed by plenty of water throughout the day which is needed because of the flushing action of the bitters.

If you think it’ll make you feel better about taking the ‘nasty’ bitters, read what happens in your body every time you take the bitters.

• The stimulation of the flow of natural digestive juices from the exocrine glands of the mouth, stomach, pancreas, duodenum, and liver aid in good digestion as well as helping a range of conditions caused by inefficient or allergy-distorted digestion.

• The flow of digestive juices triggers a stimulation of appetite. This is helpful in convalescence as well as in cases of appetite reduction and weight loss.

• A range of liver activities is stimulated, including increased bile production and the release of bile from the gallbladder – all of this improves the health of both the liver and gallbladder.

• Bitter remedies can trigger subtle psychological effects, even acting as mild antidepressants. For example, bitters can help lift the spirits in cases of post-viral-infection depression.

• They help the central reflex to stimulate peristalsis, an action that moves wastes through the intestines through a series of muscular contractions.

• Bitter also stimulate the intestinal wall’s self-repair mechanisms which is needed with IBS as well as Leaky Gut Syndrome which often happens with Candia infestations.

Looking forward to irritability going away and having some more energy.

That should happen within the next several days, hopefully.
