Dr. Rhys Preston on eating, family and travel stress during the holidays

Eating Your Way Out of Holiday Stress

For many people the problem with the holiday season is the difference between expectation and reality. We’re expected to spend time with loved ones who in reality may not be much fun to spend time with. We’re expected to enjoy parties and a bountiful buffet of foods that in reality aren’t very good for us. The net result of this Yuletide cognitive dissonance is excess stress, which can become an overwhelming health concern and cause problems that linger well past the holidays. Today’s guest is Dr. Rhys Preston, a chiropractor specializing in nutrition. Dr. Preston talks about what to eat, what to avoid, how to prepare for pig-outs, and everything we need to know to get through the holidays without leaky gut, fecal breath, a terrible hangover, and worse.
