Day 1 Overindulgence ...
Yes, face it, we will all overindulge this season. Me included.
How can we beat its ill effects the morning after?
Drinking lots of clean, fresh water and herbal teas such as peppermint, dandelion, nettle, verbena, lemon and ginger can really help.
Take a dropper full of Milk Thistle morning and night to help your liver cope with excess of all kinds.
Try to make up for lost sleep in the nights after a big night out. Yes, not getting enough sleep is a big issue in today’s society and a health issue not to
be ignored, according to Tuesday’s Irish Times article (https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/health-family/why-lack-of-sleep-may-be-the-greatest-curable-disease-in-the-world-1.3315032). So, do try to get 7-8 hours of sleep as many nights as you can during the Christmas period and beyond. I also find taking a high quality multivitamin (e.g. NutriAdvanced) really helps recovery and general daily health & wellbeing.
