Natural Health Christmas Survival Tips Wednesday 19 September 2007 PDF Print Coping with the stress of it all If you are likely to be stressed and anxious at Christmas this year (and let’s face it who won’t be?!) you could try the combination St John’s Wort with Passionflower supplement from the end of November into the New Year. St John’s Wort with Passionflower will take care of promoting the sunny side of your thoughts and feelings again. And as Passionflower is fast acting, it bridges the time the effect St John’s Wort needs to become noticeable. St John’s Wort is renowned for its effectiveness in treating mild depression but patients are advised it can take up to six weeks to take full effect. Passionflower is known to ease anxiety quickly. Clinical trials conclude that the combination of these two herbs in this synergistic supplement brings about a reduction in BOTH depression and anxiety in two to four weeks. St John’s Wort with Passionflower is available in capsules: a month’s supply costs around £10 from www.revital.com. Eat what you want despite a gluten intolerance Christmas can be a miserable time for people with a gluten sensitivity – having to avoid all that rich food and be constantly mindful of what they eat. However help is at hand. Gluten intolerant people could find relief by taking Immunecare Glutenase Plus – a new, natural, enzyme-based supplement that breaks down gluten into more easily digested gliadin and glutenin and then into amino acids. By breaking the gluten down like this, the body is encouraged to take up gluten before it irritates the small bowel therefore avoiding the discomfort that goes with gluten intolerance. Immunecare Glutenase Plus is online at www.gutdoctor.co.uk or call 0870 774 7008 for more advice. 90 capsules cost £19.99.

This introduces favourable bacteria and vitamins to the gut and intestines which, in turn, help to redress a healthy balance after disruption from excess alcohol and rich food. It’s also a useful supplement following a course of antibiotics or illness. Available at good health food stores or by calling 0870 366 5729.
