The festive season has arrived once again, bringing with it the joy of being with loved ones and savouring delightful food and drinks.
Ayurveda, the ancient system of natural healing, teaches us that self-indulgence and self-care can indeed coexist harmoniously.
By incorporating simple yet effective rituals into our holiday festivities, we can enjoy the seasonal delights while nurturing the well-being of our liver. Finding a balance between indulgence and healthy choices can help minimise the strain on your liver.
Below we share our top tips for helping you create a little self-care plan, to feel your best these holidays:
Before diving into the festivities, ensure you start with a solid foundation by enjoying a nutritious meal rich in proteins and healthy fats.
Consider incorporating Ayurvedic liver remedies, such as Milk Thistle Oil, known for its traditional support for liver function.
Harness the power of Ayurveda's golden spice, turmeric. Its anti-inflammatory and liver-protective properties are renowned.
Throughout the day, prepare your body by drinking plenty of water. Herbal teas, like fennel or mint, not only contribute to hydration but also support digestion and liver health.
Morning After Hydration
The morning after the celebration, start your day with a glass of warm water infused with lemon to aid in flushing out toxins.
Remember, hydration is key, so stay hydrated throughout the day to support your liver's natural detoxification process.
Light Breakfast Choices
Opt for a light and easily digestible breakfast, such as oatmeal or a fruit smoothie, and steer clear of heavy, greasy foods.
Caffeine can add additional strain to your liver. Instead, swap your morning coffee with a Turmeric Latte to continue supporting your liver function.
Little Acts of Self-Care
In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, self-care often takes a back seat. Even dedicating just 10 minutes to small acts of self-care can go a long way.
Try Abhyanga, an Ayurvedic self-massage with warm Milk Thistle Oil, improving circulation and indirectly supporting liver health.
Engaging in gentle physical activities like a leisurely walk or a yoga practice can further promote circulation and aid your liver in processing the previous night's indulgences.
Lunch & Dinner Choices
While it might be tempting to indulge in heavy or spicy foods, Ayurveda suggests avoiding them the day after festivities.
For lunch and dinner, prioritise meals that include a variety of vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins.
Bitter vegetables like bitter gourd and leafy greens can be excellent choices, as they stimulate liver function.
Enhance your meals by incorporating Milk Thistle Oil, further supporting your liver.
