Our world is super toxic.
From car fumes on your way to work to the processed crap we eat. Our beauty products that disrupt our hormones. To the pesticides on our produce (Use my All Natural Produce Cleaner Recipe).
In response to these toxins, our bodies produce mucous or fat to prevent an immune response from occurring. The fat stores the toxins.
Sounds pretty gross doesn’t it?
Our body has some pretty amazing functions. It has a natural ability to protect itself. Our systems can detox and repair. If they are extremely blocked you can experience major illness.
- This could be the extra 15 lbs of body weight that you struggle to lose?
- This could also be the cause of your generalized fatigue, poor digestion, weakened immune system and food intolerance.
- This could be the most basic cause of your troubles. The reason you fail to cut lose that muffin top.
The purpose of this post is to give you a simple strategy to start the weight loss process. Something you can do in your own home with the right ingredients. Don’t over think it. Just do it.
It’s called the Morning Lemon Elixir.
Make this first thing in the morning before eating. Try to use real ingredients if possible instead of the their processed counterparts.
- 1 cup room temperature water
- Juice 1 lemon (I use a hand press from Crate & Barrel)
- 1 teaspoon Bragg’s raw apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon raw honey OR a couple drops of stevia
- 1/2 inch of fresh ginger root or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
If you feel ill or have chest tightness after drinking the morning lemon elixir, cut out the Bragg’s raw apple cider vinegar. This reaction can occur from the body’s releasing of bacteria and unwanted toxins. Continue to drink the lemon elixir, omitting the Bragg’s, 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 upon reintroduction, continue to only drink the lemon water.
Awesome effects of Morning Lemon Elixir!!!
If you start your day with the Morning Lemon Elixir your body will respond by increasing your digestive enzymes and stimulate digestion.
Your liver will release toxins. It will flush away fat. (Awesome!!)
- And you will get a healthy dose of vitamin C, potassium and minerals.
- It also controls your weight.
- You blood sugar will begin to regulate.
- Your body will shift it’s pH to become more alkaline.
- Acidity usually comes with inflammation.
- After doing 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 your food.
There are so many awesome ways that you can use food to support your body’s natural functions. I know “detox” seems to be a buzz word lately but I’m telling you that you need to if you want to improve your health! You can add on awesome products that amplify and enhance the benefits of detoxing. I use USANA’s Digestive Enzyme and Probiotics daily!
