Holiday Survival Guide

Tis the season (for temptation...and gas and bloating!)

Happy Holidays! If you’re like most people, the likelihood of at least one indulgent meal is, well… pretty likely. We get it — temperatures are down, tempting foods abound, and family and friends are around, making it both a celebratory and stressful time. It happens to the best of us, and we want you to bounce back as best you can after an overindulgent meal and the subsequent case of the “blahs” that tend to follow.

Dr. Morrison shares his tips and tricks to prevent and cure symptoms from the nearly inevitable holiday binge and bloat, so you can bounce back fast.

So, do yourself a favor this holiday season and pick up some of our favorite remedies for surviving holiday indulgences.

Holiday meals tend to be on the rich side. We like the following products to help you digest all that yummy food: 

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics supports digestion by helping to strengthen the good bacteria that live in the digestive tract. Healthy bacteria aid the digestion and absorption of nutrients, reduce inflammation and support your immune system. We recommend 2 capsules before meals. Click here to shop.


Benezyme is a digestive enzyme formula that improves the digestion of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. It can be particularly helpful in digesting larger-than-usual meals. We recommend taking two capsules before meals. Click here to shop.


Digest RC

Digest RC helps your body produce the enzymes that break down fats, reduce gas and bloating, and calm inflammation in the digestive tract. We recommend taking two tablets before meals. Click here to shop.

If you choose to enjoy an adult beverage with your meal, here are some recommendations to prevent post-holiday hangovers:


Buffered Vitamin C

Buffered Vitamin C has a number of different benefits, including helping the body metabolize alcohol by supporting liver detoxification. We recommend taking two capsules before drinks. Click here to shop.

Detox Nutrients

Detox Nutrients is packed full of essential nutrients to support the detoxification of alcohol, including milk thistle, NAC, pomegranate, and alpha lipoic acid. We recommend taking two capsules after meals and drinks. Click here to shop.

And finally, if you’ve really overdone it, and the tried and true aren’t enough, try the following before bed:


Energetix ReHydration

Energetix ReHydration supercharges water with homeopathics to help rehydrate you and rebalance your electrolytes. Just add 1 dropperful to a glass of water before bed. Take more throughout the next day for improved hydration and relief from fluid retention.



Activated Charcoal

Activated Charcoal is a binding agent that binds to toxins in the digestive tract, which helps to reduce gas and discomfort. We recommend taking two capsules before bedtime, away from medication. Click here to shop.


Tri-Salts Powder

Tri-Salts Powder is designed to neutralize increased acidity in the body. It serves as an efficient sodium-free buffer and a hypoallergenic source of the minerals calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

We hope you find these recommendations useful and are able to stay happy and healthy this holiday season!
