"Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;...
and not today's pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man."

Support your body over Christmas!

Lisa Cutforth - Friday, December 19, 2008
'Tis the season to be jolly!  Have a GREAT time but remember to support your body! We all like to spoil ourselves over Christmas, it is best not to over do it, but if you do... here are some tips to ease the body burden... Aside from the obvious, stay out of the sun at the hottest part of the day, protect the food from flies and salmonella poisoning, here are 3 winners!
  1. Drink lots of water!  It is really hot, so you need to replenish the water you loose from sweating.  If you are drinking alcohol, it is especially important to drink more water to prevent dehydration and to help your body eliminate toxins!
  2. Support your liver!  It is your main detox organ, so this time of year it tends to work overtime! Milk thistle is a great herbal supplement that aids and protects the liver.  You can buy it from most health shops and chemists (ask the assistant for advice if you are on any medication or you are pregnant or breastfeeding).
  3. Get some fresh food into you.  Watermelon is great this time of year, it's refreshing and full of nutrients!
May you have a very merry Christmas and live to tell the tale! ;o)
