Featured Tonic of the Month for February: Traveler’s Tonic
Posted by: cnyha on Feb 01, 2011 in news

Traveler’s Tonic: If you are planning on taking any trips this Winter or Spring, especially out of the United States, this is a great tonic to take along with you.

Traveler’s Tonic is for diarrhea, food or salmonella poisoning, intestinal parasites, gastric distress, and vomiting.  It can be used as a preventative measure (one dropper full once daily and increase to two or three droppers full if you are worried about the water or food) and for acute conditions (one dropper full hourly).

One of the ingredients in the tonic, Guava Leaf, has been studied for its medicinal properties since the 1940’s.  These studies have found that it is very effective in treating GI disorders, stopping vomiting and diarrhea.  Guava Leaf is rich in flavonoids which have demonstrated anti-bacterial activity.  Another ingredient, Jackass Bitters is an anti-viral and anti-fungal herb.  Putting these two herbs together makes for a very powerful and effective tonic.

Contraindications include pregnancy, breastfeeding and infants up to 3 years old.  This tonic is not meant for prolonged use (longer than four weeks).  Taking a dosage for more than fourteen days may result in a photosensitivity rash on the skin when exposed to sunlight.  This rash will clear up within days of discontinued use.

Traveler’s Tonic is our featured tonic of the month and is 10% off for the month of February.  Please feel free to contact a Maya Abdominal Therapy practioner at any of our CNY Healing Arts locations for further information.
