Improve Digestion With These Easy Essential Oil Blends



Written by: Lindsay Sibson

Did you know you have a “second brain?”

You certainly know about the one in your head that is the conductor of your thoughts and actions, but you also have a “brain” that is in your belly!

Say whaaaat?

This “belly brain” is referred to as your microbiome and is full of bacteria that your gut utilizes in order to communicate with the rest of your body. Your gut and brain are connected by a network of neurons, hormones and chemicals that give you feedback about what is going on and how you are feeling.

Have you ever had a “gut feeling” about a person or place? THAT feeling is your brain communicating with your gut!

Your body needs a healthy balance of bacteria for digestion. When things get out of balance in your gut, it can lead to a disruption in your digestion and cause:

  • Bloat
  • Gas
  • Stomach ache
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Cramps

If you are looking to restore and improve your gut health, you can naturally and simply manage digestive disorders by using these essential oil blends. These can function as:

  • Symptom relief
  • Protection
  • Prevention
  • Recovery

Use these effective oil blends to help relieve the uncomfortable and painful symptoms of digestive distress. Combined with a healthy diet of fresh foods, these essential oils can help you reestablish a healthy balance in your gut.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
