Fortunately, there are simple ways to help your body deal with your lack of willpower and restraint- which can assist in healthy digestion, by ensuring that toxins do not build up and damage your health. Even, at other times during the year, it’s worth having these sort of digestive remedies around, so you can keep a close-eye on your health and wellbeing. Firstly, Herbal Elixir, is a form a caffeine-free, herbal-tea, that can reduce the sensations of bloating that often accompany over-eating and drinking. These teas, which often come in a peppermint, lemon-grass and chamomile form, can help expel body-gas, sooth the digestive system and also help to calm the nerves- serving as a remedy for many Christmas ailments! Your digestive-system and its processes can also benefit from the consumption of green juices, such as celery or cucumber juice.
