How Does Herbal-Oriental Medicine Work?

Oriental Herbal Medicine is used to restore the body’s “Chi”or the energy of the body by bringing the opposing forces of Yin and Yang into balance.

Traditional medicine believes that the imbalance of the Yin and Yang creates blockage of the “Chi” which results in illness and disease.

Indigestion Relief is DIGESTALIEVE!

Every year millions of Americans are affected by indigestion and its symptoms of mild to severe abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, diarrhea, acidic taste, and growling of the stomach. Indigestion in itself is not a condition, but often is a sign of a more serious underlying problem, for example: gallbladder disease, ulcers, acid reflux, obesity, etc. Indigestion is also called Dyspepsia, which refers to the feeling of discomfort during or after a meal. Regular consumption of alcohol or drugs that may irritate the stomach lining (such as aspirin, certain muscle relaxers, or blood pressure medications), overeating, eating too quickly, not properly chewing, consuming greasy foods or beverages containing caffeine increase the risk of indigestion. Avoiding foods with high amounts of acids, such as citrus fruit, tomatoes, and chocolate may lessen the chances of getting indigestion.

DIGESTALIEVE contains over thirteen of the highest quality organic herbs that help relieve the discomfort associated with indigestion. It helps relax the stomach muscles and ease the passage of food, breaking up food stagnation, decreasing the production of acid, and lessening the severity of overall indigestion symptoms. Herbs such as: the Immature fruit of the bitter orange or Zhi Shi, medicated leaves or Shen Chu, Tsaoko Fruit, Long Pepper Fruit, Costus Root, and Patchouli have been used in Eastern Medicine for thousands of years for abdominal and gastric pain, nausea, poor appetite, diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach distention. Medical studies have showed Hawthorne Fruit, one of the DIGESTALIEVE ingredients, as being a digestive aid that “holds significant potential as a useful remedy in the treatment of cardiovascular disease.” Immature fruit of the bitter orange effectively treats constipation, abdominal hardness, distention pain, and poor appetite. It is also used forshortness of breath, fatigue and overall weakness.

Just as with Acupuncture, DIGESTALIEVE herbs wield similar results by tonifying the muscles of the stomach and the esophagus, bringing the utmost available energy to the organs. Combining herbal treatment with Acupuncture is beneficial and recommended. Other herbs such as Bur Reed Rhizome and Zedoary Rhizome are some of the strongest herbs used for blood and Qi stasis. In Oriental belief, Qi, is the natural energy or “life force” and every living thing possesses this energy flow. It is important to maintain Qi balance for an overall well-being and stability.

DIGESTALIEVE will strengthen the stomach muscles, help restore the balance of the stomach flora, alleviate distention and discomfort, and even improve any bad breath. For optimal results 20-40 pellets should be taken 1 Hour after a meal, twice a day.

Constipation Relief is CONSTALIEVE!

Constipation is a common digestive problem that most people experience in their lifetime for a variety of reasons. It is a misconception, and it is not necessary to have bowel movement every day for your digestive system to be regular, but if there are three or less passings of the stool in a week, the problem is considered to be Constipation.

Stool can be hard and dry, sometimes painful to pass, different consistency, accompanied by straining or feelings of incomplete evacuation of the bowels. The feeling of “want to but can’t.” The function of the large intestine or colon is to absorb water, delayed transit through the colon causes hardening of the stool leading to infrequent and possibly painful bowel movements.

Another common false conception about bowel movement is that the waste stored in the body is absorbed and is dangerous and toxic to the health and longevity of life. These misconceptions lead to heavy reliance and even abuse of over the counter laxatives and procedures such as colon irrigation. Which in themselves may disrupt the stasis of the body, causing dependency and further complications.
