Foreman, Herbal Pharmacist, has written a helpful article on “Holiday Digestion.”  You can read the full article (1) and others by Dr. Foreman at .  Click on Articles and Recipes at the top, then on Advice from Experts, then Herbal Pharmacist; you will then see the archives on the right.

Below are some excerpts from “Holiday Digestion.”   Dr. Foreman writes a monthly newsletter for the Vitamin Shoppe chain of stores.  

1. Maintain a balanced diet of carbohydrates, protein and fat.

2.  Avoid drugs that may exacerbate your condition like aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

3.  Avoiding alcohol and caffeine at the holidays may be difficult for many, but this will be helpful to your digestion.

4. Do your best to decrease stress. This will have a huge impact on your digestive health.

5. Use a combination digestive enzyme, the best being ones that contain protease to digest proteins, amylase to digest starches, lipase to digests fats, and even lactase for lactose. Dr. Foreman’s suggestions are: Multi Enzyme by Vitamin Shoppe, Digest Gold by Enzymedica, Advanced Digestive Formula by Vitamin Shoppe, and Digest More by Renew Life.  Take supplement right before your meal.  If you are still bloated in an hour, repeat the dose.
