How do you feel on Monday morning after eating TOO MUCH FOOD?
You know that feeling you get after consuming an abundance of rich, greasy foods over the weekend? Loss of appetite, bloating, foul stool and gas, indigestion, diarrhea and/or constipation are all symptoms of what is termed “Food Stagnation” in TCM.
According to Nigel Wiseman, in A Practical Dictionary of Chinese Medicine, FOOD STAGNATION is any pattern of damage to the Stomach and Spleen from food, caused by VORACIOUS eating or Spleen/Stomach deficiency. Overeating causes food accumulation to remain untransformed for several days, leading to damage of the Stomach and Spleen meridians.
AcuHerb has a great formula for FOOD STAGNATION!
- Promotes healthy digestive function
- Resolves Food Stagnation
Teach your patients to recognize Food Stagnation, AND let them know that you have an herbal formula to help.
#1: Ask them if they ever experience these symptoms after a weekend of overeating. I’ll guarantee that almost everyone will answer with a resounding YES!
Foul stool and gas
Diarrhea and/or constipation
Loss of appetite
#2: Have them purchase a bottle of 206 SP—Bao He Pian. This is a perfect formula for your patient to keep on the shelf, at home, for those days when they need “a little extra help” getting their Spleen and Stomach to function properly again. For extreme food stagnation, have them double the dosage for the first several days.
Overeating is bad for the Spleen and Stomach channels, but we all do it now and again. Having the right AcuHerb formula to put the body back in balance makes all the difference in the world. Three cheers for 206 SP—Bao He Pian!
