Seasons Greetings and Happy New Year to all our wonderful customers and friends we have yet to meet.
Ate too much turkey?
We have a remedy for that. Overeating is a popular blunder during the Christmas season. After all, the kids are home from school, we have time off work and baking is a traditional Christmas activity. Relaxing with our family and sharing a great meal along with an apple pie and possibly a shortbread cookie or two, may not be what we are used to in our normal diet, and can lead to stomach aches and acid reflux. Tips to remedy overconsumption include hydration (drink plenty of water) and a brisk walk outside in the fresh air. Alka-Seltzer or a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water can help relieve discomfort. If you like tea, try ginger, chamomile or peppermint tea to soothe your stomach and aid digestion.
Other popular drugstore items bought this time of year include detox kits and immune boosters. Detoxification is the first step to cleansing your body from overconsumption. There are several products available to start the detox process, and we invite you to talk to our staff for information and recommendations. Detox routines are popular when starting the new year with a resolve to getting a healthy routine back on track. Immune boosters are popular throughout the winter season to fight common colds and build the body’s vitality for natural resistance.
