Have you asked yourselves why our world is so toxic? In my book, the reasons for the “junk world” we are living in are extremely complex because everything has a share: from car exhausts on your way to work to the processed food you eat or use for beautifying yourselves.
Yes, it’s getting more and more difficult to buy food free of pesticides or cosmetic without a long list of harmful ingredients. Not only do they fail to bring the benefit it is expected of them, but also they poison your body! Sometimes, the extent to which bad substances in food and other products are present is so great that your immune system becomes totally deactivated!
Do you know what happens inside of your body when it gets loaded with toxic material?
Read this: Your body produces mucous or fat to prevent the immune response from occurring. The fat stores the toxins! And when you shut off your natural defense system, you rely on all kinds of chemical drugs to replace it or supplement it! YUK!
Contaminated foods disrupt your natural balance while your beauty products disrupt your hormones. Can this be helped? The good news is: YES, it can! You only need to get your natural defense system into full swing again!
The quickest way to swing it into action is to try out natural cleansing and slimming recipes. The aim of my writing is to help you with this, so I have prepared a nice morning lemon elixir for you. It is something you can do in the commodity of your own home with the right ingredients at hand.
Morning lemon elixir recipe
- 1 cup room temperature water
- juice of 1 lemon (use your hand press)
- 1 teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon raw honey or a couple of drops of stevia if you are on yeast cleansing or low sugar diet
- 1/2 inch of fresh ginger root or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Mix these ingredients well first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Try to use real ingredients if possible instead of their processed counterparts.
If you have chest tightness after drinking the lemon elixir, cut out the raw apple cider vinegar. This reaction can occur because the body is releasing bacteria and toxins.
Continue to drink the lemon elixir for at least three days, and then try to re-introduce or use only ½ teaspoon of the apple cider vinegar. If the reactions continue to occur upon reintroduction, continue to drink the lemon water only.
Your defense system will detox and repair if you just give it a chance. When it is slightly blocked you come down with a cold or flu for instance. But when it is extremely blocked, you develop serious illnesses such as cancers, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes etc.
Here are some awesome benefits of the morning lemon elixir:
When you start your day with this drink, your body will respond by increasing your digestive enzymes and thereby stimulating digestion. Other things that happen are these:
1. You get a healthy dose of vitamin C, potassium and minerals,
2. You control your weight,
3. Your blood sugar begins to regulate,
4. Your body shifts its pH value to an alkaline one.
Your body acidity usually comes with inflammation. After drinking this for a few days, you will start to notice a massive increase in the amount of phlegm released. If bloating was a symptom, this should decrease it and allow your stomach to break down food.
This is only one simple way to get you into healthy streams. There are many more easy ways to use food to support your body’s natural functions. Although “detox” seems to be a buzz word lately, keep in mind that there is no man with perfect health on this planet!
One last thing: Add on other excellent products like digestive enzymes or probiotics to your daily diet because they amplify and enhance detoxing.
