Herbs that Heal For the Holidays!

 
Whether you are working on Nutrition Response Testing® with Joe or just coming in for acupuncture treatments, find out how the following herbal supplements can help you get through the next few months!
 
With any of these herbal supplements in your medicine cabinet, you will be able to get the jump on the general stressors of the next few months, which will help you really start the new year off in much better health!

From our Standard Process/Medi Herb supplement line:

Digest Forte- This herbal supplement can help you to digest all those rich, sugary foods! Digest Forte also assists the body to minimalize all the negative effects of holiday food, which will make it easier for you to get back to your regular post-holiday menus! Both effective and gentle, Digest Forte’s specific blend of herbs may help to improve general digestion and intestine function and can also cleanse the liver while promoting normal response to environmental stressors.

Gymnema- Gymnema leaf has been used by natural clinicians in India for centuries to help support healthy blood sugar levels. In India, it’s common name is “Gurmar,” meaning “destroyer of sugar,” as the taste of Gymnema suppresses the ability to detect sweet tastes. This can be used to help curb your sugar cravings this season! You can also combine Gymnema with Metabol Complex to help support the metabolism of fats and sugars.

Ashwagandha Complex and Kava Forte- When used together, both can help to calm your nerves and can help to maintain feelings of well-being when under stress. Both supplements can also help you deal with the general stress of the holiday season. Ashwagandha helps the body adapt to the changes of everyday life, supports a healthy immune system and gives support to the body's natural defenses against emotional and environmental stressors. Kava Forte helps to ease the effects of temporary nervous tension and stress, supports muscle relaxation and helps to promote relaxation and better sleep in general. Try combining both these supplements with Valerian Complex tablets to promote relaxation and encourage sleep while also supporting your nervous system.
