Well this week for many people it is time when we come together to celebrate Christmas – so I hope that you all have a wonderful time with family and friends. I am aware however that many people may find themselves bloated from over eating, or feeling poorly from overindulgence in alcohol, so this week I have a few ideas of ways to avoid feeling rotten over this festive period.
Firstly to help avoid those heavy bloated feelings that we can all suffer if we have eaten too much, one safeguard remedy to have on hand is Higher Natures SuperGest. This contains enzymes which will help you to properly digest the volume of food you may have eaten. It also contains things which will help your body break down the extra vegetables – even the sprouts – to help avoid any potential embarrassment that unwanted wind may cause. On top of that, SuperGest also contains herbs which are commonly used to settle the stomach and prevent colic and wind, such as fennel and ginger. A couple of these taken after a big Christmas or Boxing Day meal should help reduce any possible discomfort quite effectively.
Secondly, for those who may be tempted to have a few alcoholic beverages why not support your liver with some Milk Thistle a herbal remedy which is often used to prevent hangovers and support the digestion – my tip – take a dose before you start drinking, then again the next day and hopefully this will help. On top of that, get yourself a couple of Hydrate sachets. This is an isotonic hydration sachet that you can mix into water. Drinking one then will help to rehydrate you and therefore prevent the dehydration which can occur with alcohol, which is what causes the headaches and dry mouths which often strike the day after.
One additional note though – I know that for some Christmas is not just a time of good cheer, it can actually be quite a stressful and anxious time – for those suffering in this way over this season try Higher Nature Balance for Nerves – we have had some great feedback on this remedy, with many customer telling us that it has helped to reduce their feelings of stress and anxiety within a matter of days, thanks to its combination of B vitamins, lemon balm, passiflora and theanine – Hopefully this will help all those celebrating, have a fantastic festive season.
