Peppermint is helpful for many stomach ailments and promotes good digestion. Because it has a calming and numbing effect, it is useful for headaches and skin irritations, and may aid in the treatment of anxiety associated with depression. It also relieves many symptoms of colds and flu.
Peppermint is helpful for nausea, diarrhea, indigestion, morning sickness, and flatulence. It calms the muscles of the stomach and improves the flow of bile, which the body uses to digest fats. As a result, food passes through the stomach more quickly, which helps many digestive problems. Peppermint also relaxes the muscles that allow the body to rid itself of painful digestive gas.
These are some of the other conditions that may be improved by peppermint:
· Menstrual cramps—Because peppermint is effective for relaxing muscles, it is very helpful for painful cramps.
· Irritable bowel syndrome—Research has shown that enteric-coated peppermint capsules are able to calm and soothe intestinal muscles. This provides pain relief and healing for this common stress-related syndrome.
· Gallstones—Peppermint oil can help the body break down gallstones, providing a safe alternative to surgery.
· Viruses—Peppermint oil has exhibited antiviral properties and may be helpful in the treatment of some viral conditions such as flu, mumps, sinusitis, sore throats, cold sores, and genital sores caused by herpes.
· Itching and skin irritations—Peppermint has a soothing and cooling effect on skin irritations caused by hives, poison ivy, or poison oak.
· Tension headaches and migraines—Research has shown that peppermint oil's ability to relax muscles and relieve pain has made it particularly effective against headache pain.
· Colds and flu—Peppermint and its main active agent, menthol, are effective decongestants. Because menthol thins mucus, it is also a good expectorant. It is soothing and calming for sore throats and dry coughs as well.
