Have a Safe & Healthy Christmas Holiday!
The end of 2020 is quickly approaching! I think most are happy to witness the end of this strange and stressful year and hopeful for what the new year will bring. Although there is still some uncertainty lingering around, we have better knowledge and safety protocols in place and most people are being responsible. Let’s all continue to do our best to be responsible and keep everyone safe so we can have an enjoyable, happy and healthy holiday this season.
At Salt we are continuing to be diligent with our cleaning and sanitization protocols including requiring clients to please wear a mask, for your safety and ours, upon entering the facility. Once alone in your own treatment room, you may remove your mask. I am very grateful that each treatment room is private and with staggered appointments, clients are not walking past each other in our centre hallway.
This month I would like to share Christmas Specials on all of our services that can also be used for Christmas gifts. These include multi service packages as well as discounts on single services. Scroll below to see this month’s Christmas Specials!
Uncomfortable or unable to leave the house? We offer all service packages and specials, as well as gift certificates, online. Don’t want to bother with setting up an online account? We can place your purchase over the phone using a credit card or use a credit card on account. All purchases remain on your account for a year and if there are any more centre closures, the expiry will be extended. Need a gift certificate? This can also be done over the phone and we can mail the certificate, arrange for curbside pick up or it can be held for the recipient until they come in to use it.
We will also have Christmas gift baskets available and we will post about them on Instagram and Facebook during the month.
What Whole Foods & Supplements Can Do For You This Holiday Season
We all look forward to this special fun time when we can eat sweet treats, enjoy pumpkin lattes, and a few cocktails…basically, Eat, Drink and Be Merry!
It is fun at the time but often enough, we can easily begin to exhibit symptoms and experience an increase in bloating, indigestion and fatigue after meals. Using multi spectrum digestive enzymes, especially with heavier meals, as well as probiotics can help you assimilate your meals by increasing your digestibility and absorption of nutrients. (I like Renew Life brand probiotics – 50 Billion – and choose an enzyme that helps break down all foods including sugars and carbohydrates, protein and fats). Ensure you are eating healthy whole foods along with your treats as the minerals and vitamins in the whole foods will alleviate fatigue and lethargy and will fill you up, helping to prevent overindulging. Probiotics or using cultured foods such as sauerkraut (the ones purchased in the fridge, not the shelf), and plain yogurt will help to balance the flora in the gut which also eases symptoms from indigestion and keeps your immunity in tact. You can also try Eaters Digest aromatherapy blend from Saje Aromatherapy. The roll on is perfect for rubbing over your stomach to ease cramping and bloating from over eating or indulging in food or drink you may be sensitive to. We have our wonderful detox tea that is great for digestion and can be used as well.
Be sure to also balance those sweet treats with some protein such as nuts, cheese, or meat to avoid blood sugar havoc. Adding some fresh fruit and vegetables will also help to keep you from overeating unhealthy foods and can be enjoyed together. Need something to help the morning after a few drinks or eating rich food? Take a multi mineral supplement that contains Vitamin B or the homeopathic remedy, Nux Vomica, which can also be taken when you feel nauseous from overeating or eating foods that are very rich.
We all like to indulge once in a while and it’s all good as long as we aren’t suffering so I hope these tips can help you eliminate any discomfort this season and enjoy a symptom free holiday!
Wishing you and your families a safe and healthy Merry Christmas and looking forward to a healthier new year!
