I have a theory about detoxification.
It goes like this;
1. We start our life untoxified.
2. As we live ina toxic world we ‘toxify’.
3. It’s our choice whether we decide to reverse this process.
4. The best ongoing way to detox is to drink enough water.
Too simple, right?
Hey, we’re bombarded with toxins in today’s modern world… from the polluted air we breathe, the water we drink, the shampoos and other cosmetics that lather our body with chemicals, and let’s not dismiss all of the chemical additives, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and other harmful compounds in the food we eat.
All TOXINS can have harmful effects on your body, harming your metabolism and hormones, impairing your digestive system, and zapping your energy levels. That’s why they are called toxins. Duh-Oh!
If I could share ONE thing that you could do each morning right as you wake up to help your body eliminate more of these toxins, improve your digestion, stimulate your metabolism, and BOOST your energy, would you do it?
Of course you would… and it takes less than 1 minute!
Here’s it is.. and it also alkalizes you!
When you get up, first up -squeeze about 1/2 to 1 full lemon into a 250ml glass of warm or room temperature purified water. It’s more gentle on your body first thing in the morning compared to iced water.
I drink this at least 10 minutes before eating any food for the day. Luckily I live in a region where everyone grows lemons and limes. This time of year we go for a walk and return who 20 or 30 lemons!
If you have to buy them, ensure you use fresh organic lemons to make this drink. Bypass all of those bottled products. Organic lemons help you to avoid the pesticides that can accumulate.
3 BIG benefits of this heart starter drink to your body, health, and energy:
A leading health publication, TheAlternativeDaily.com is very good.
“The health promoting benefits of lemons are powerful. For centuries, it has been known that lemons contain powerful antibacterial, antiviral and immune boosting components. We know that lemons are a great digestive aid and liver cleanser.
Lemons contain citric acid, magnesium, bioflavonoids, vitamin C, pectin, calcium and limonene, which supercharge our immunity so that the body can fight infection.
Lemons are considered one of the most alkalizing foods you can eat. This may seem untrue as they are acidic on their own. However, in the body, lemons are alkaline; the citric acid does not create acidity once it has been metabolized. The minerals in lemons are actually what helps to alkalize the blood. Most people are too acidic (from eating too much sugar and grains), and drinking warm lemon water helps reduce overall acidity, drawing uric acid from the joints.
This reduces the pain and inflammation which many people feel. And the American Cancer Society recommends warm lemon water to encourage regular bowel movements.”
