Hawthorn tea for the festive season

Wishing everyone a Merry X'mas and Happy New Year. I am really touched and lost for words with all your letters and even presents (Thanks Catherine). Words can't express how thankful I am to all of you. Thank you very much for your letters of encouragements and feedbacks of your health improvements. Your words of encouragements have spurred me on to work even harder.
My X'mas wish is to bring more happiness and fun stuff to more people out there. And also to be able to excel in my career and research.

Most of us would probably have overeat during this festive season. Hmmm....next will be New Year celebration! We tend to feel sluggish and suffer from indigestion when we overeat. Here's a tea that can help to deal with fatty liver, indigestion and overweight. However, it is not suitable for pregnant ladies, people suffering from stomach ulcer and gastric(You will need to seek Chinese TCM's advice).
Hawthorn is known as 山楂
对人体的好处: 有消食散瘀,降血脂,治食积、胃酸、产妇恶露等作用。山楂对12种药物的致突变毒性均有明显的拮抗作用。接受化疗的肿瘤患者及健康人群适量吃些鲜山楂果将有益于预防肿瘤 (to be further confirmed by western science)

How to prepare Hawthorn tea?
Very simple. Put 5 small slices of Hawthorn in a mug. Add boiling water and steep for 15mins. Sometimes I will add four thin slices of orange skins together with the Hawthorn slices.

Folks, enjoy your holiday. I need to get some sleep now...had a late night yesterday.
