Tummy Tea

Oooohhhh It's a doozy...now these are the words that tend to leave my child’s mouth as he leaves the bathroom.

And trust me, not the words I want hear knowing I have to go in after him. 

A little background. Our child has had gastrointestinal issues, including an emergency life flight, since he was 18 months (he’s now 10 years), and we have seen every doctor you could possibly think of for these issues, as well as, all the medications, rubs, exercises or, whatever else "Dr. Google" and your neighbor's second cousin's aunt has told you to try.  

Been there....done that...found tea.

And trust me, this was even a hard lesson for me to swallow as a mom. At some point we have to realize, we know ourselves and our loved ones better than any other forces that be. (Again, let me reiterate, I believe in medicine, but I also believe there are some home remedies that really work, as well).   

Where am I going with this? Probably to a bottle of wine....oops, got off course. 

Tummy issues are all over the place in my house. "I feel like I’m bloated," "I want to throw up," I feel like I’m burning from the inside out," it’s a plethora of gut insanity. Lord, have mercy on me!

So reach for what you probably already have in your home. Ginger, coriander (cilantro in seed version), peppermint, cinnamon, lemon....that chamomile tea you bought for sleep. 

Sounding vaguely familiar to Carly’s Breathe Easy Tea...there’s a reason for that.

No single “herb” was put on this earth to do just one job. You can mix and match ingredients that suite your family, to aid in combating multiple things at once.  

Yes, I’ve rambled and you’re just waiting for the recipe so here it is.  

(If you want to know how to make this using Pure food grade essential oils, let us know in the comments or send us an email)

You can make this exactly as stated, or you can add it into your favorite chamomile tea like my favorite here.




Enjoy your day, cramp free, cleanup free and hopefully smell free. 

I'll be back soon!

Guest Blog: How Intermittent Fasting Gave A Former Leader Of A Popular Diet Program Her Life Back

BWH Note: At Busy Women's Health, we are fueled by the stories and successes of our fellow Busy Women. Today, we are thrilled to have a Guest Blogger share her journey of self-love through Intermittent Fasting.  Meet Sheri, an Intermittent Faster since 2015, her name may ring a bell or two if you've read any of my IF stories , as she is the person responsible for introducing myself and countless others to this amazing way of life. Today, Sheri is sharing her unique perspective on Intermittent Fasting as a former member and leader of a popular dieting program. Carly Everywhere I look I see people struggling with weight loss and unsure of what program to follow to lose weight. I see a lot of people convinced that they must count calories/macros/points to lose weight. When I tell them they can let that go and simply count time, they don’t trust me. People are terrified of letting go of calorie counting or points counting or otherwise trust that fat loss with IF is dif

I Ate The Damn Cake And Lost 21 Pounds

Today is a good day. No, a GREAT day. This morning, I stepped on the scale and was amazed and ecstatic to see that I am officially 21 POUNDS LIGHTER since beginning my Intermittent Fasting journey at the end of January 2018. See the difference? I've talked before about how I found IF and started my weight loss journey if you want to check it out. The day I started IF, I weighed in at 149.8 lbs, the heaviest I'd ever been in my life. Today, I am 128.8 lbs. I haven't been close to this for almost a decade. I never thought I'd get back to 130 lbs, much less BELOW it! And I did it without depriving myself, without sacrificing my favorite foods and without ever once feeling guilty about anything I ate. Sure, I probably could've reached this milestone sooner had I been a bit stricter with myself, but that kind of defeats the purpose of what IF is all about.
