Slippery Elm Bark Powder is used to treat irritation in the gut, bowel and ulceration of all mucosal membranes within the body and it will completely repair the mucus lining of any affected area.
It is useful for irritation due to surgery or a digestive upset.
Slippery elm is recommended for acute cases of diarrhea, as well as for conditions like colitis and stomach irritations. The herb helps these digestive ailments by reducing inflammation and lubricating the digestive tract with the help of the mucilage, or oily secretions that make up slippery elm. To treat sudden cases of diarrhea, you can also employ fasting, feed bland food and give probiotics along with slippery elm to ease symptoms.
It might seem strange that slippery elm can help two seemingly opposite conditions like diarrhea and constipation… but, well, we told you it was a wonder herb, didn’t we? Because of slippery elm’s soothing, lubricating properties, the herb can help to relieve and even prevent constipation.
Much in the same way slippery elm reduces inflammation and lubricates the digestive tract, it works to help the upper respiratory system, making it of great benefit in easing discomforts from painful coughing associated with conditions like kennel cough and bronchitis.
Dosage: Give a ¼ tsp of powder for every 5kg of body weight. Mix the powder into food.
