Christmas is nearly over and New Year is just around the corner. It’s time for family get-togethers and parties with friends filled with delicious food and festive drink.
Eating large, fat meals (as you do during the celebration time!) often leads to indigestion, manifesting itself with: feeling of fullness, discomfort, belching, abdominal pain and bloating. Add to this a substantial dose of alcohol and you have a perfect recipe for wrecking your digestive system.
Are you already stuffed with stuffing, packed with chocolate and overflowing with mulled wine?
Since we still have few more festive days to come here are few simple tips that will help you get back on track and help your body recover from effects of overindulgence.
Have you ever wondered whether you should give acupuncture a go?
But, does acupuncture work?
You might have heard that apparently Sandra Bullock gets acupuncture 3 times a week! It’s in her contract and studios have to pay for it!
Elle McPherson has it done regularly, too. She claims: “I do choose to look after my body from a Chinese medicine perspective, which promotes and maintains wellness rather than treats illness”. Jennifer Lopez dropped 15lbs with help of acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Jennifer Anniston does it, Angelina Jolie does it, Sean Connery, Madonna, Oprah, Lucy Liu, Kim Kardashian..the list goes on and on!
So is it just another fad you might ask?
Absolutely, not! Acupuncture has been invented 5,000 years ago, and practiced since over 3,000 years, which makes it one of the oldest practicing forms of medicine known. World’s largest population – over 1.3 billion Chinese people can’t be wrong!
