Now, wait a second.  Didn’t I just finish licking the crumbs from my third plate of Thanksgiving pumpkin pie?!  And didn’t I just get off of that tinny tin tube also known as an airplane where I sat next to the bathroom and every screaming and coughing adult and child - as I stared longingly into the semi-transparent curtain separating me and the rest of the plane from those eight people in first class who get a bathroom all to themselves?!  Have I come home merely to step on the scale to see just how much damage I did on one late November Day, work overtime to buy a bunch of “Extremely-Meaningfuls” for “Those-Loved-Most” and “I-Don’t-Knows” for “Who-Knows-Who,” only to turn around, hop on a plane, and go through the whole holiday rigmarole again?!


Celebrating Christmas doesn't have to mean loosening another notch on your belt! Make sure to use Assist SI this holiday season to keep your digestive system on track to prevent that pesky holiday weight gain.

“Yes.  But tell us how you really feel.”

Healthy Holiday Eating Tips Save the Day

Okay, I admit it, and you can call me Scrooge.  I am a tad cranky, and I feel a tad …crank-tastic - and I am certain it is because I am over-tired, underpaid, and puffy.  But who isn’t this time of year?  I actually can’t wait to go “home for the holidays” and see my loved ones, but I already feel run-down and don’t want to start the New Year only able to fit into Santa’s suit!

How can I arm myself against airplane germs, over-spending, and my mom’s Brown Sugar Marshmallow Holiday Mash - and that’s just breakfast!

Well, I can take a little bit of my home to the home from whence I hail. Think a “BED” can’t fit into a stocking?  Au contraire, and here’s how...


  1. PROBIOTIC LIQUIDS -- To curb my sugar cravings and correct those times when I may (hypothetically, of course) give in to them.  One CocoBiotic (that’s my fave), One Passion Fruit Biotic (let’s not kid ourselves, I’m gonna need some bacteria to gulp up the extra gluten consumption) and One Dong Quai (my Aunt Sally is very moody and always mistakes it for her Christmas cocktail - and believe me, the mistake behooves us all!)
  2. DIGESTIVE ENZYMES -- One Assist (every meal in my parents’ house has a sequel), One Assist Dairy and Protein (because animal products are not digested equal), and One Assist SI (the Family Holiday Eat-a-thon is a weeklong fete, and I need to give my entire digestive system all the help it can get!)
  3. GREENS -- One Vitality Greens (I already feel like my immune system is fighting a cold-weather cold, and I want to hug my little nieces and nephews. Furthermore, I can make a greens drink as a prequel to my family’s meals, and maybe I won’t eat so much...junk!)
  4. A SUGAR ALTERNATIVE -- One Stevia (just about any recipe that calls for sugar can be sweetened by stevia instead, and if not, a drop or two in my tea may allow me to forgo a second glass of egg nog!)
  5. BOWEL MOVER (tee-hee!) – One LivAmend (look, we’re all grown-ups here.  Dehydrating plane flights and holiday eating equals Christmas constipation in my experience.  LivAmend seems to do the trick and keeps the bowels humming... Christmas carols.)

Okay, AWESOME. So, now I am armed with Puff-Control, Sugar-Eating, Immune-Building Goodness! But I also mentioned that I wanted to combat the over-spending.

Well, as usual, Body Ecology is a few steps ahead. To minimize any holiday damage to all of the hard work you have done on your health this past year and to save you some extra cash to spend on your loved ones and friends, Body Ecology is offering their Holiday Survival Kit.

    Unable to fully digest your food? Add more wood to the fire.

    Assist SI bolsters your digestion by delivering more enzymes to where you need them most—in your small intestine. This is where tiny finger-like villi reach out and seize nutrients, pulling them into your bloodstream.

    But if you don’t have enough enzymes to break apart large molecules of food, the villi can’t do their job. And unabsorbed food ferments in the small intestine, creating painful gas and irregular bowel movements.

    Assist SI delivers the same enzymes that your pancreas releases into the opening of the small intestine, ensuring your villi have something to grab on to and that you get the nutrition you need.

    Take 1 - 3 capsules with each meal. Combine with Assist Full Spectrum Enzymes and Assist Dairy & Protein for greater results.
