According to tradition one must consume a piece of Christmas Cake a day (I have no idea where this tradition came from) for 12 consecutive days in order to receive the ‘Christmas Good luck’. However, in my case I’ve probably already consumed the 12 pieces…falling well short of the said 12 days. Woops!
So if you are a ‘consumer’ like me you might like to consider the benefits of Peppermint Tea (I’ve talked about this in a previous post), Chamomile tea, and a favourite digestive homeopathic remedy – Nux Vomica. One of these combined with a wee lie down on the couch generally works wonders after over-indulgence of the Christmas sort.
If you are finding you are consuming more alcohol than usual due to Christmas functions then its good to remember that as alcohol depletes the body of important vitamins keep taking your multi-vitamin over the Christmas Season.
Try and start each day with a glass of water with lemon juice added – a good kick start for your body.
And lastly, remember to keep up your exercise routine. Going for a walk after a large meal can do wonders also.
Have a happy and safe Christmas Season!
