Overeating, Indigestion Remedy

I usually send this one out this time each year. If you celebrate Christmas and New Year be kind to your body and mind and don't go overboard with too much food and drink.

It's not just about stopping before you are completely full, at around 75%, it's also about minimizing food combinations.

All those things you might have in big Christmas meals like chicken, turkey, ham, seafood, vegetables, salad, dessert, candy, pudding, chocolate, alcohol, soft drinks, coffee, etc, put a lot of strain on your digestive system. Especially for those middle-aged and up, but kids too with their immature digestive systems.

Try to keep it simple: Eat small portions of 1 (maybe 2) meats per meal. Eat plenty of vegetables or salad with meals. Don't drink too much of any liquid with meals. And don't pile sugary desserts or fruit in on top of meals, it's a sure-fire way to digestive upset, bloating and pain.

If you do over-indulge try this indigestion remedy. Have a cup of strong, hot green tea, then go for a long, slow walk while rubbing your abdomen. And don't eat again for at least several hours.

All the best for the holidays and next year.


Great idea: Create a new email folder and save each health tip for easy access later - you never know when you might need one of them!
