CHINESE MEDICINE AND HOLIDAY SURVIVAL: Overeating and Excessive Alcohol consumption is a given during the holidays.  Whether it’s all in one day or an accumulation of days of parties, family get togethers, and eating foods that are rarely served,  the change in diet can bring with it a number of unwanted symptoms.  Fatigue, bloating, gas, depression, headaches, constipation/diarrhea, and upset stomach are just a few of the many complaints during the holidays.   The good news is that celebrations have been happening for thousands of years and Chinese Medicine has just the thing for you to breeze through the holidays feeling great.
We all know the consequences of that second, third or fourth serving on Thanksgiving.  There is a simple fix for that.   A Chinese formula called “Curing Pills” is a combination of herbs that help the body digest foods, help the liver and gallbladder break down fats and toxins and relieve us of the uncomfortable feelings with which we are all too familiar.  Dr. Awesome Hangover Formula is not just for those outrageous nights of drinking.  In fact, during the holidays we consume two to three times the amount of alcoholic drinks over a span of 2 months than we normally do during the year.   This is due to work parties, family and friend get together and a change in our daily routine.   The holidays are a big time for the alcohol companies but they don’t have to bring you down with them.   Depression, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, body aches, nausea, upset stomach and many more symptoms are caused by an increase in alcohol.  It only takes 2 drinks to make you feel sluggish the next day.  Don’t let that happen to you.  
Curing pills and Dr. Awesome Formulas can be ordered or purchased at Carolina Beach Community Acupuncture.   You can also find Dr. Awesome at Island Wellness Market, Veggie Wagon, Shuckin' Shack, Bud n Joes, HopLite, Uncle Vinny’s and online at  These Herbs make great stocking stuffers and holiday gifts for your friends, family and co-workers.  Use the Code GREENMO on the Awesome Formulas website and get 20% off your order.  xo mo
