OVER-ATE DURING CHINESE NEW YEAR?
Is eating too much CNY goodies causing you indigestion and heartburn issues?
Here are 4 ways from TCM perspective that your stomach will thank you for!
1. Massage in clockwise direction around your belly button
This helps to promote intestinal movements to move bowels along.
2. Drink Hawthorn Tea (山楂茶) to aid digestion by breaking down fats in meat
Adding in some malt (麦芽) can help to improve the taste and break down the carbohydrates in all those CNY goodies.
3. Opt for warm drinks instead of cold or carbonated drinks
This will ease the stomach and promote food digestion.
4. Use acupoints to alleviate indigestion and relieve stomach upset after a heavy meal
