The holidays are all about family, friends, delicious food and we often find the need to indulge. To help us with eating one too many causing an upset stomach see my natural remedies to help you get back to your best once the holiday season has finished.
Our digestive system is paramount to our health as it is made up of numerous organs working as a team to process the nutrients and food that we eat. If our digestive system isn’t working to its best ability then our body seeks food and toxins start to build up. Making the most of herbs in our diet is a great way to help detoxify our foods.
Make Some Herbal Tea:
Caffeine-free herbal teas ease an uncomfortable, inflated system.
Warm and pleasant, these medicinal leaves become digestive support almost immediately.
Peppermint – Helps with dissipation of gas and indigestion. It is not surprising that this tea has been used for centuries.
Chamomile – An anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic, featuring calming effects helping with stress relief.
Green juices such as a mix of celery and cucumbers with a little apple to sweeten will help cleanse the digestive system. Also packed with quality nutrients and can be used as a healthy snack.
Warm lemon water is great to cleanse the digestive system, detox the liver, and calm intestinal bloating. Add a little honey if a sweetener is required. Drink firsty thing in the morning on an empty stomach to get a good head start to the day.
Ginger helps with digestive lining, increases speed of digestion and helps to balance gastric juices.
Peel and slice a two-inch piece of fresh ginger. Add to three cups of boiling water. Brew for five minutes, strain and sip the tea slowly. You may add some natural sweetener to taste.
Enjoy the rest of your Easter!
