Christmas can be an intense time on our bodies. Whether it's slaving in the kitchen, feasting on what seems like acres of Christmas cake, or being bold and polishing off the final few bottles of wine, our bodies go through quite a bit and sometimes the thought of prepping another turkey sandwich is just too much.
