Whether you’re on the Plan, thinking about it or done with it, here’s a list of tips from customers and our Staff to support your body during the upcoming Thanksgiving week.

1) Helping your digestion: If you’re anticipating a big meal make sure to have some herbal tea handy to have afterwards. Peppermint and chamomile are excellent choices to support your digestion.

If you’re accustomed to eating larger meals on Thanksgiving, give your body some assistance and take enzymes to help aid digestion. Here are some options depending on the issue at hand:

Digestzyme: As an overall digestive aid.

Betaine HCL with Pepsin: For higher protein meals.

Bile Acid Factors:  For heavier fatty meals.

Terramin: Many holiday meals are higher in fats causing more toxins to be released via the liver and gall bladder. Binding these toxins with Terramin clay will ensure they’re are eliminated quickly instead of being recycled around the body for an extended period of time.

2) Support Elimination: Keep those bowels moving, especially when traveling or eating foods that are not part of your usual diet. Use Concentrace Trace Minerals to help aid elimination.

3) Sugar and Vaginal Yeast Infections: If your dealing with a yeast infection, increasing sugar in your diet will affect the ph of the tissues causing a flare up. You can either stay away from sugar or be prepared and have some support like Vitanica.

4) Sweat every minute of it! If you have access to a bath tub a sauna or Bikram Yoga (also known as “Hot” Yoga) make sure to have at least 3-4 sweating sessions during the week. Not only will you increase your metabolism and drain toxins from your body, but it’ll give you a time to relax and recharge.

5) Deep breaths: Yogis have used breath control, or pranayama, to promote concentration and improve vitality for centuries. In a recent article in the Globe and Mail by Lesley Alderman explains how this technique not only can calm the nervous system but also increase your energy.
We hope you take some time next week to acknowledge yourself and everything you’re doing to  bring greater goodness and healing into your life.
It’s so easy to focus on what we haven’t accomplished rather than on all the positive changes we are making. Gratitude is a very powerful force.
