The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hundreds of thousands of Kiwis who do not yet have both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine face a tightening of their freedoms on December 3, when the Government moves the entire country into the new “traffic-light” system.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the date on Monday, saying Covid-19 was not going to be eradicated from New Zealand.

TAKE CARE OF THE BLOAT

Naturally Healthy

Take care of the Bloat.
We know! We know! Not the most upbeat, Christmassy way to start a blog. We also know that we’ll be feeling the effects of filling ourselves from the fluffy tufts of our Santa hats to the ends of our mistletoes. We’re talking, of course, of the dreaded but inevitable Christmas and Boxing Day bloat. Urrrrgh.
Let’s start by giving ourselves and our loved ones the OK to go a little overboard these holidays. There’s ways to turn the yuletide on feeling full. As bloating is a gut-related condition we’ll focus on how your gut can beat the bloat.
