Herbs for Colic: Gripe Water


Herbs were once known for their many medicinal qualities. I can assure you they are still a powerful force for your continued health. One example, gripe water, is a remedy that has included many different ingredients. The version I have found to be useful contains fennel seed and ginger decocted in water. Easy and simple herbalism; a great natural remedy for your baby. This decoction warms the stomach and intestines making it easier for your infant to digest. Your baby is getting used to new foods as she continues to build that good bacteria in the intestines and so needs that healthy addition to the digestive fire. Start low with the dosage, but these are both food-grade herbs.

Are you or your baby having any problems with digestion? Call us here in Portland at Spring and Autumn Acupuncture to schedule an appointment today.
