HERE’S OUR TOP 10 TIPS ON HOW TO BRING BALANCE BACK TO YOUR BODY AFTER THE FESTIVE SEASON...
1] DON’T CRASH DIET AND CUT CALORIES - you will feel starved and miserable in no time
Instead stock up on a variety of fresh cleansing veggies to add in fibre to your diet
to clean out your digestive system with nutritious, simple, anti-inflammatory whole foods.
2] ADD IN SOME SUPPLEMENTS THAT BIND TO TOXINS - some of our favourite additions to help clean out your systems are - activated charcoal, chlorella, zeolite and Glutathione.
3] DRINK LEMON WATER/APPLE CIDER VINEGAR & CLEANSING HERBAL TEAS - after all the excess salty/sugary food and alcohol it’s a good idea to rehydrate and flush your liver with some lemon/lime water and help soothe your digestion with herbal teas such as ginger and peppermint.
4] GET MOVING - Put the excess calories to good use by getting out and going for a fresh walk or run or going to the gym. Even a little extra activity a day will really help you feel better and get your system functioning smoothly again.
5] IF YOU ARE NOT HUNGRY, DON’T EAT - Listen to your body. Chances are after over indulging on super rich christmas food, you won’t want to eat much and when you do it will most likely not be more christmas puddings.

6] TRY NOT TO BEAT YOURSELF UP FOR ENJOYING YOURSELF OVER THE HOLIDAYS - instead focus on what you want to feel now, which may be a bit healthier, less sluggish and lighter. This will help you to focus on what you want instead of dwelling on the past.
7] DELAY YOUR BREAKFAST - Try to practice not eating in the morning until you have made
a bowel movement. There is nothing worse than filling your system up with more food, when it hasn't fully processed and eliminated the food from the days before.
8] CONNECT TO THE VALUE OF FEELING BETTER - Feel into why you want to make changes to your body and how you feel. Connect to your why and then list the actions you need to take to get there.
9] SWEAT IT OUT - Hot/cold therapy such as alternating the sauna and an ice plunge pool
does wonders to help your cells rid themselves of toxins from alcohol and excess processed foods. Don’t have a sauna? Try a hot epsom salt bath finished with a cold shower.
10] MASSAGE TO RELEASE TOXINS - Lymph drainage/massage can help the lymph system eliminate toxins from your body, it’s also good to de-stress from the madness of christmas. Add essential oils such as lemon and grapefruit for an extra detoxing boost.
You can also help your lymph system yourself by dry skin brushing every morning.
