The Christmas holiday season can be one of the busiest and most stressful times of the year . We are supposed to be enjoying our families, taking care of the needs of less fortunate people , thanking God for all of our blessings and yet , most people are exhausted trying to meet the demands of what our society dictates. The endless commercials, internet ads, shopping expectations , the demands of parties, decorating , cultural events and even end of the year business challenges are too much for many people .

Many people tend to focus on gifts and neglect themselves and become sick by January .
TIP #1
The most important supplement to balance your immune system is a green drink , like Greens+ , Kyo-Green, Green Vibrance , Perfect Food or one of your other personal favorites. Take 1 tablespoon up to 3 times daily with a minimum of 8 oz of water for each tablespoon. These high-alkaline green drinks are also a terrific meal replacement or snack when runnning errands or shopping . If you are watching calories , have one before you attend a party or event to limit foods that you normally don’t eat .
Just add to a water bottle ,shake and take it with you. Reduce the dose to 1 teaspoon for kids under 12.

TIP#2 For those holiday sniffles , make sure you have your natural anti-biotic acting supplements with you at all times. Wild Oregano Oil or the Oregabiotic ( North American Herb & Spice ) , Silver ( Silver Biotics or Sovereign Silver ) Garlic (Allimax) herbs,( Dr Venessa’s Respiratory & Bronchial Complex) and the Vitamin C ( Alacer Emergen-C packets)and Resistant Microbes Herbal Extract ( Herbs of Light ) really work .

TIP#3 For anxiety attacks and emotional balance from the stress of crowded shopping malls and horrendous traffic jams, try using rhodiola, holy basil , B-Complex and Pantothenic acid (500mg) .Try Kava Kava 300 mg at night with 500 mg of Magnesium and /or 100 mg Theanine .

TIP#4 Use Aromatic essential oils like lavender and peppermint , they help to reduce headaches and uplift mild depression. Tyrosine , 1000mg also helps.

TIP#5 For focus and concentration for the things on your to-do list , drink Yerba Mate’ ( Traditional Medicinals & Guayaki’ are my favorites) , Green Tea ( Itoen , Numi , Traditional or Celestial Seasonings ) and your EFA’s -200-300mg of DHA fish or vegetarian marine source ( Nordic Naturals , Nature’s Way ) Phosphatidyl Serine
( PS ) 100-200mg daily, ( Jarrow Formulas) also works .

Remember to breathe, get moving with daily exercise , surprise someone with an unexpected courteous gesture or a genuine smile , and take joy in the simple pleasures that this season brings.
