Too Much Turkey?

Michelle Goebel-Angel, LAc, MSOM

Did you overindulge on turkey this past November?  Try acupuncture to relieve digestive imbalances, curb sugar or food cravings and/or beat fatigue before the next round of holiday meals comes around.  Balancing the body’s energy system is all you need to keep yourself feeling healthier, and lighter, as the holiday season makes way.  

Here are some ways the needles work:
  • Daily bowel elimination relieves toxins from the body reducing weight gain and exhaustion
  • Deep breathing and relaxation opens up energy movement and restores balance
  • Resetting the body’s energy can increase mood and boost energy
  • Regulating hormones can keep cravings at bay

Essential oils, such as peppermint and geranium, are also effective for suppressing appetite and balancing blood sugar.  Inhaling peppermint throughout the day can trick the mind into feeling satiated, thus eating less, or at least eating smaller meal portions.  Applying geranium oil to the bottoms of the feet twice daily can resolve sugar or food cravings by regulating your blood sugar.  Try this for one month and see the results for yourself!

Other surprising results from acupuncture or other Eastern modalities might be to: 
  • Enhance the immune system and reduce congestion in the upper body, something that is particularly important as the holiday season approaches 
  • Feel grounded and more clear-minded as we wrap up the year and look forward to setting new goals for 2013
  • Enjoy social gatherings more due to feeling more relaxed, yet energized 

Here at the Raby Institute we want this holiday season to be joyous and full of delightful occasions.  We wish for you to keep your digestion functioning fully and effectively to stave off illness and other cravings or imbalances.  For this reason, we are offering package deals that keep your pocketbooks feeling lighter and your body feeling fuller!
