Take care of your tummy this thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is in a few weeks! Truly there is a lot to be thankful for despite the craziness of this year. First, we had a pandemic. Then, social unrest started to occur. This is not to mention the current election frenzy.
Despite all these things, we hope you and your family are doing well. I bet you are all getting ready for thanksgiving dinner. If you are alive and well, that means that this year has been a good one for you. If you and your family are together this year, then that is really something to be thankful for.
This thanksgiving dinner, you are probably going to have the regulars. The roasted turkey, the stuffing, and pumpkin pie all come into mind. You can almost smell and taste it right now. However, you are probably not preparing for something that happens when you eat too much- indigestion.
What is indigestion?
Indigestion is also called dyspepsia. It is a general term used to refer to an upset stomach. It is also used to refer to pain and discomfort in a person’s upper abdomen. Indigestion is not a disease but it could be a symptom that you have one. More often than not though, indigestion is due to our lifestyle.
Indigestion is mostly caused by overeating or eating too fast. That is why we should not gobble up our food. We should always chew and swallow properly. Even when the food tastes good, we should take the time to chew properly so that it will be able to digest well.
Other reasons for indigestion is spicy and fatty foods. There’s a reason that burrito you just ate seems to come back at you. Also, do not lie down after eating a hearty meal. You are sure to get indigestion by doing that.
Indigestion is most common during holidays like Thanksgiving. Too much of that Turkey and Stuffing is sure to leave you bloated and gassy. The fun and fellowship you have with family and friends is great. But the discomfort that comes from eating all that Pumpkin Pie is sure to keep you up at night.
How do you prevent indigestion?
Doctors have already prescribed ways to prevent indigestion. Some of these are the following:
1. Do not drink too much alcohol
It is ok to have a glass of wine with turkey. Just don’t tale more than 2 glasses.
2. Drink lots of water instead.
It is a fact that water helps in digestion. Plus, it doesn’t have those extra calories that alcohol
3. Eat some salad first.
Before diving into the turkey, get some green, leafy vegetables. This so that your digestive tract will not be overwhelmed. But do not put too much of that creamy, fatty dressing.
4. Do not go to bed right after you eat.
It will take some time for your stomach to digest that full holiday feast. Doctors suggest you only lie down after 3 hours from eating dinner.
Aside from following these tips, make sure you have NG PO YUEN- GASTROINTESTINAL SUPPORT on hand!
What is Ng Po Yuen Gastrointestinal Support?
Ng Po Yuen is a trusted Chinese herbal remedy that has been used in China since the Qing Dynasty. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), it is used to relieve gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea, indigestion, vomiting, bloating and food poisoning. It is specifically made for the gastrointestinal system and can be used by all ages.
What makes Ng Po Yuen amazing for indigestion and other gastrointestinal problems are its ingredients. Let us go through all of them.

-Assists in the flow of Qi and relieves pain.
-Assists the Kidneys in grasping the Qi of the Lungs.

Aloeswood is a bitter ingredient. This makes it excellent for cleaning the body. This cleansing action is done through urination and regular bowel movement.

According to TCM, Licorice is used to balance the effects of other herbs such as those in Ng Po Yuen. It can also detoxify the body. It is more popular in the west as a sweetener and is made into Licorice sticks.
4. Agastache herb
Scientific name: Agastache rugosa
Main TCM actions:
-Transforms Dampness that is obstructing the Stomach and Spleen.

The Agastache herb can be prescribed by TCM doctors for abdominal bloating, loss of appetite, vomiting, morning sickness, and abdominal pain. One of its main targets is the stomach to help in digestion. Like the other ingredients, it is just what is needed for Ng Po Yuen.
How much should I take?
