Monarch Essentials (Our site for practitioners)
Genuine good health requires optimal absorption of nutrients from food, combined with the regular excretion of waste products. This formula helps tones these systems, providing the nutritional and recuperating elements contained in these traditional digestive herbs. This tonic contains Dandelion, Calendula, Agrimony, Ginger rhizome, Lemon Balm, Burdock, Wild Bergamot, Roman Chamomile, Melissa, Yellow Dock, water, ethanol.
These herbs have traditionally been used as an aid in the treatment of a wide variety of digestive disturbances. The formulation works on two levels. The majority of the herbs are digestive tonics that stimulate the secretion of enzymes and digestive juices by the stomach, small intestine, pancreas, liver and gall bladder. In addition, aromatic nervine herbs stimulate the digestive process while calming the sympathetic nervous system. This is very important because all digestive disturbances are at least partially related to stress. The Digestive Tonic is helpful for all manner of symptoms related to indigestion including upset stomach, nausea, gas, bloating, etc. It is also useful for liver and gall bladder congestion and as a supportive aid in the treatment of food allergies where there is a poor digestion component. This formulation can also be used as an appetite stimulant.

For all digestive disturbances, a few dietary rules are important to follow. It is best not to overeat, to avoid snacking between meals on anything except fresh fruit, and not to eat anything between dinner and breakfast. Allow at least one hour after waking before eating breakfast whenever possible. Increase consumption of fruit, vegetables and whole grains and decrease consumption of fatty or oily foods including red meats, dairy products, fried foods, nuts and nut butters. Relax for a few minutes before eating, focus on your food, chew it well and avoid distractions such as reading, watching TV, thinking about stressful situations and excessive conversation as much as possible while eating. Drinking sufficient water is important, but don't drink too much with your meals. Digestive enzymes can be helpful for symptomatic relief; however, the goal is to stimulate the digestive system to produce its own enzymes, not to become dependent on an external source of enzymes. The herbs should be used until the body no longer requires enzyme supplementation. Broad-
Formulas are best used individually. While combining tonics with other herbs may not interfere with their effectiveness, it is best to complete a course of one tonic before starting another.
