There really is some simple dietary first aid. Here’s how to get started.
This past week, you probably ate and drank some things you ordinarily wouldn’t.
Our advice? Always enjoy yourself but just don’t go crazy.
Why? Because it’s a whole lot easier to get back on course if you only stray a little.
Focus instead on the 99+ percent of your life, including following the NeuropathyDR Diet & Lifestyle Plan. And be sure to stay on track with your neuropathy home care kit care too!
But even if you stray from good neuropathy treatment habits even just a little sometimes you can feel really awful!
But there is good news! You can do both “prevention” and dietary first aid!
First of all, drink plenty of water if you go on “holiday”. It’s OK to sample different foods unless you are allergic or sensitive, but resist the temptation to go crazy!
Don’t drink alcohol at all if you have medication interactions, and be careful of overindulging in alcohol anyways, as it can irritate many forms of neuropathy & pain.
Make sure you take your prescribed supplements, and eat small frequent meals. Doing so will make it easier for you to stay on track if you do go to parties.
Now, if you wake up feeling lousy, don’t panic. Just get back on track ASAP with all your good self care.
A good Rescue Remedy if you really overdo is simply to do the BRAT Diet for 1 to a few days (small servings of Brown rice, Banana Tea and Applesauce). This is actually a good clearing diet for lots of people and can help you feel better faster after overindulging.
Also, be sure to be drinking enough water, and eating healthy all day (as we teach-minimal carb, adequate protein) every 2-3 hours.
Following the tips here, and your good self care you are more likely to really enjoy your holidays and time off a whole lot more!
