12 Naturopathic Suggestions for the 12 Days of Christmas

  • Include the love and care of strangers in your giving by having some  of your gifts be contributions to causes you believe in - on the behalf  of that person. 

  • Create space for what matters - declutter, let go, take time for you. 

  • Give your digestive system a hand - give thanks, chew well and take digestive enzymes to big dinners. Have a shot of Swedish bitters or apple cider vinegar before dinner.

  • Slice ginger root and boil it up at the first sign of a cold.

  • Follow your bliss. Take the time to rediscover what brings you joy these days and make sure to include these things daily in action or thought. This will effect your ability to share joy and love with others!

  • Forgive someone and write a loving letter to that person. Open your heart.

  • Find sweetness in stevia, agave, maple syrup, honey, good quality chocolate and in the company you keep.

  • Get out into nature everyday....and night ...breathe in the full moon and the stars and the invigorating freshness. Open fully to it.

  • Add avocados to your parties - helps the liver process alcohol.

  • Enjoy the moments - only make promises you can keep.

  • Hug deeply.

  • Sing whenever you get the chance. Matt Andersen's Christmas CD and the Pentatonics are must- haves if you need some accompaniment!
