Healthy digestion is the foundation of wellness and herbalists use a range of herbs to offer support. If you are curious to learn how to calm inflammation, release tension, move stagnant energy, and heal the gut, then taking a look at what and how we eat is key. We'll discuss the importance of bitters, aromatics and probiotic herbs and delicious ways to use them.
