The after Thanksgiving belly…..
Thanksgiving a day of giving thanks for the many blessing we have; and eating.
A healthy digestive system is important to one’s overall health. With that being said if your digestive system is backed up just you don’t feel well.
Not long back with my youngest we were working on the digestive system for science. One experiment was taking an old pantyhose and using crushed up saltines and water to mimic food being digested and squeezing it to remove the water and eventually make it move through the intestines.
One of the ways to help your digestive system is with caster oil packs. I routinely use caster oil packs in a massage session.
I use cold pressed caster oil, rubbed into the belly. A cotton towel is then applied over the belly and a hot water bottle on that. While the pack is on the belly I continue with the massage. The caster oil absorbs into the body helping to hydrate and lubricate the internal organs. The massaging of the belly also helps to get things moving. I have had positive feedback on the caster oil packs applied to the belly.
Yes, that is Goose's schoolwork on the digestive system above.
