Preserving Digestive Harmony Through the Holidays

It’s coming to that time of the year again, where there seem to be treats to tempt around every corner. Good will power is always a good thing to carry along with you, but there is also something to be said about enjoying a little indulgence with good friends and family every once in awhile.

Acupuncture is always good for keeping things moving smoothly, and improving your digestion! But if you’re looking for something you can take along with you on your travels, or pass around the dinner table this coming Thursday, herbs can be a great option for you!

One famous formula for reducing food stagnation is Bao He Wan, which translates to ‘Preserve Harmony Pill.’ The spleen is always the first organ we look to in Chinese Medicine when there is any sort of digestive upset- and this formula contains great herbs to encourage the spleen to do it’s job efficiently. It reduces stagnation, helps with distension and even heartburn. Bao He Wan is effective, but because it is made up of relatively mild, harmonious herbs it is safe for nearly everyone.

It’s never a bad idea to have a bottle on hand for when you find you’ve overindulged. You can bet every acupuncturist does! -Mariah Van Horn, L.Ac.

To Our Community

Acupuncture Atlanta is committed to providing quality care and helping you stay healthy in this environment defined by a new normal. Acupuncture at its core is a preventative modality and our practitioners are here to work with you and design a treatment plan that is suitable for your specific needs.

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
