Dr. Roizenº on Mindful Tips to Keep Your Gut Happy During the Holidays

Let’s face it—the holidays are tough on your digestive system. And many think of the holidays as not just two days but a marathon—The Holiday Marathon—the five weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve.

A few times a year, occasions arise that are truly special: Your birthday, Thanksgiving, your anniversary. These events are almost always celebrated with food. If it’s a true celebration, it’s about impossible to avoid the delicacies around. And sharing your happiness over a delicious meal or special food is a fabulous and cherished part of life.
