Digestive upset is a special kind of misery, and in cystic fibrosis and other digestive diseases it may be a common nuisance. Fortunately, herbal medicine is particularly effective in assisting people with these issues! All of our ancestors have been using medicinal herbs to address digestive distress for eons. Although conventional medicine has very few tools to assist us with gastrointestinal issues, especially with regards to chronic indigestion, there are many, many herbs which can help resolve GI symptoms including stomach aches, intestinal cramps, nausea, burping, constipation, loose stools and diarrhea, delayed gastric emptying, reflux, and more. In this article I will suggest a few herbs to use to address bloating and indigestion. There are so many medicinal herbs to choose from that I couldn't possibly discuss them all in one article, so I'll touch on a few that I use most frequently for myself and my clients.
