Holiday Stress Detox Tips

  1. Settle Your Stomach

    For indigestion, peel and chop a 2,5 cm piece of fresh root ginger and simmer with one tablespoon of fennel seeds for 10 – 15 minutes. Then add a teaspoon of dried peppermint or a peppermint teabag and infuse for 10 minutes. Strain and sip.

  2. Treat Your Feet

    Try detox foot patches. They work by drawing out harmful toxins such as fatty acids, cholesterol, urea, sugars, nicotine and caffeine while you sleep. Apply the patches to the soles of your feet every night for a week and feel refreshed.

  3. Boost Your Energy

    Take a course of probiotics for a week before you leave on holiday, during your holiday, and for a week after you return. They help to boost your energy, and immune system; and also combat the effects of overindulgence, lack of sleep and stress.

  4. Cleanse Your Colon

    When you have overdone the holiday eating and drinking, take a good colon cleanse and gut repair formula. Combine with some liver and kidney drops for 14 days. Both are very effective holiday stress detox tips.

    Holiday stress detox tips from an acupuncturist – “Try massaging the ‘Hegu’ point in the webbed area between your thumb and first finger. Apply medium pressure for 10 minutes using your right thumb to massage your left hand and vice versa. You can either apply constant pressure or make small anti-clockwise movements.”

  6. Do A Body Cleanse

    This is one of the simple holiday stress detox tips. Take a herbal cleansing formula to help your body cleanse itself of impurities, especially after the festive season. You will feel lighter and more energetic.

  8. Herbal Relief For Hangovers

    herbal relief for hangovers

    “Ayurvedic doctors recommend this to prevent and relieve the symptoms of overindulgence. Blend 600ml grapefruit juice, two teaspoons of lime juice, one teaspoon of ground cumin and drink warm before and after drinking alcohol. Vitamin C helps clear alcohol quickly out of the system, the fruit sugar helps metabolise alcohol faster and the liquid flushes out toxins, while cumin ais digestion and supports the liver.”

  9. Celery For Soothing

    Juice a small celery bulb – six or seven sticks – and drink. This will help to balance the acid in your body that has built up as a result of holiday indulgences.

  10. Free Your Fridge

    On January 1st, clear out any remains of fattening holiday fare and fill your fridge with healthy, low-fat, low-GI foods such as oats, apples, lentils and basmati rice. This is one of my favourite holiday stress relief tips for starting the new year on a lighter note.
