During this joyful and sometimes stressful season of office parties, family get-togethers and general celebration, it is possible one might overindulge in food and/or alcohol. What can one do to help mitigate the effects?
- Drink lots of water to get things moving through the kidneys and out of the system. Target 64oz a day of filtered water. If the overindulgence is alcohol, take commercial electrolytes (Nuun Sport is a good one), coconut water, or diluted juice and table salt.
- When eating foods you normally avoid, take a digestive enzyme that works for your issue. For example, if you avoid gluten and dairy then consider GFCF by Integrative Therapeutics to help digest those items. We have many types of digestive enzymes and your provider can help you select the best one for your situation.
- Homeopathic Nux Vomica 30c is great for that post party hangover. The morning after the over-indulgence, take five pellets under the tongue every 15 minutes up to three doses.
- Sign up for my 4-Week Clinical Detoxification Program the end of February – we’ll do a thorough clean-up of the system getting you ready to start the new year right.
I hope this season treats you well and wish you the best of health.
