Indulging is a fun part of the holidays. Most often, many can experience uncomfortable symptoms including indigestion, cramping, nausea and acid reflux.
These symptoms can put a damper on the spirit in the moment. Here are a few tricks you can use to help relieve some of these symptoms and assist with digesting rich foods and sweet treats:
a) Incorporate whole foods such as grains, fruits, vegetables and some protein before your treats to keep you from overeating.
b) Take a digestive enzyme (multi-spectrum) with your heavier meals.
c) Include a 25-50 billion probiotic to aid in better digestion and improve your immunity.
d) Try some refrigerated sauerkraut (keep your tummy happy with its healthy bacteria; naturally fermented/sour foods are known to assist with digestion). You can have your enzymes, probiotics, whole foods, maybe some sauerkraut and eat your cake too!
Wishing you a symptom free, healthy, safe and happy holiday!
