Cumin seed water can be a highly effective treatment, or supportive treatment, if you are suffering digestive distress at any stage of life. Symptoms of nutrient malabsorption, bloating, spasm/cramps, burping or vomiting, nausea, bloating and sluggishness of the gastrointestinal tract can all be alleviated with the tonic below.
Cumin seed is also deeply healing for mothers in the early stages of childbirth recovery. Cumin assists the digestive tract to re-balance after the birth, aiding in positive bowel movements, reduction in wind build up, discomfort and bloating. In addition, cumin will also reduce inflammation and pain in the uterus, supporting it to return to normal size and heal efficiently after the birth. There are also benefits for baby too - cumin helps to increase the quality of breastmilk, and in doing this, aids positive digestion for baby in the early weeks.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
1-2 tablespoons of cumin seeds (from the supermarket or Indian supermarkets)
1.5-2 litres of water
Place the seeds and water in a saucepan and bring to boil for 1-2 minutes. Strain and sip throughout the day. Continue to make a fresh batch of this tonic daily and take for up to a month or until symptoms clear.
With love and light,
