Do a tech detox.

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Change Your Life -

“The sen­sory over­load from tech gad­gets can over­stim­u­late your ner­vous sys­tem,

which in turn weak­ens di­ges­tion and im­mu­nity,” says Se­bas­tian. The next time you’re feel­ing un­der the weather, ditch your smart­phone to feel

bet­ter in­stantly!

MED­I­CAL HERBAL­IST AND DOC­TOR OF NATUR­OPA­THY FROM SE­BAS­TIAN LIEW CEN­TRE “Add a few slices of onion to wa­ter and bring it to the boil. Sip your con­coc­tion slowly,” rec­om­mends Se­bas­tian Liew, med­i­cal herbal­ist and doc­tor of natur­opa­thy from Se­bas­tian Liew Cen­tre. “Onions are high in the an­tiox­i­dant quercetin, which boosts the im­mune sys­tem and mo­du­lates in­flam­ma­tion and his­tamine re­lease. This can help decongest a runny nose nat­u­rally.” Onions are also rich in sul­phuric com­pounds, which help your body to flush out tox­ins. Ease your tem­per­a­ture with some galan­gal root pow­der tea or yar­row tea. “Galan­gal and yar­row are cool­ing, and pro­mote the elim­i­na­tion of tox­ins via per­spi­ra­tion. Th­ese herbs also sup­port the im­mune sys­tem,” says Se­bas­tian.

Skip the pills and step into the shower in­stead to get re­lief. “Shower with hot wa­ter for one minute, then switch to cold wa­ter for 15 sec­onds, and back again,” Se­bas­tian ad­vises. Al­ter­nat­ing wa­ter tem­per­a­ture stim­u­lates blood cir­cu­la­tion and in­creases the flow of nu­tri­ents to your brain. You’ll also feel re­freshed and in­vig­o­rated.
