1. Detox drinking
Forget alcohol and caffeine for a while and switch to green tea. You can also infuse your regular drinking water with herbs and items like ajwain, jeera, fenugreek seeds, lemon slices, tulsi, neem leaves among others. Make sure that you include lots of natural fluids in your diet like honey-lemon water, coconut water, et cetera.
2. Eat light
For the next few days plan your meals in a way that your digestive system gets a break. Promote the gut flora by including fermented items in your diet like buttermilk.
3. Eat fresh
Fibre is excellent for gut health, in order to ensure flushing all the junk out of your body and to restore optimum gut health, load up on fibre-rich foods. Fresh fruits and veggies are excellent for a healthy digestion.
4. Avoid sugar and salt
While you can try and go low with salt, try and banish regular sugar completely from your diet. You can switch to natural sweeteners like jaggery, honey, et cetera.
