Having a family with different digestive needs can be challenging when it comes to food shopping and preparation. But don't worry, I've got you covered with 5 ways to support the whole family's digestive health!
1. Simplify mealtime with ONE MEAL A DAY that suits everyone. Cooking multiple meals can be time-consuming and exhausting. By having one meal that everyone can enjoy, you save time and effort. For the rest of the day, you can offer a variety of choices buffet-style or create a "platter" with different options.
2. Boost digestion with PROBIOTICS AND DIGESTIVE ENZYMES. These supplements can help support a healthy gut flora and improve digestion for the entire family. Reach out to me for recommendations on my favorite Young Living products in this category.
3. Address individual needs by choosing foods and supplements accordingly. Consider the specific requirements of each family member. For example, someone with Crohn's disease may benefit from a low FODMAP diet and consumption of soothing liquids like soups and smoothies. Tummygize, a diluted oil designed for kids' sensitive skin, can help ease your daughter's tummy troubles. Limiting dairy consumption may be helpful for your son, and for yourself, reducing dairy and wheat intake while incorporating Digize oil internally may be beneficial.
4. Encourage regular movement to improve digestion. Engage in activities as a family that involve movement, such as bike rides and hikes. For your personal needs, prioritize exercises that target your hips and low back to help maintain regularity. To assist you further, I've created a series of free detox yoga videos on YouTube. Check them out here, they are short and easy to follow!
5. Minimize processed foods and sugars as much as possible. These types of foods can often disrupt digestion and overall well-being. To keep your family on track, avoid stocking these items in your pantry at home. When you're out and about, it's easier to manage the occasional indulgence while maintaining a healthier eating environment at home.
Remember, digestive health is unique to each individual, and finding the right approach for your family may require some trial and error. Young Living offers a range of products and resources tailored to support digestive wellness. Reach out to me for personalized recommendations and guidance on incorporating essential oils and other Young Living products into your family's digestive support routine. Together, we can navigate the complexities of digestion and create a healthier, happier family!
