If you are a coffee drinker, try sipping a cup of warm water (try adding organic lemon too) first thing in the morning prior to your cup of joe. Sipping hot water naturally dissolves toxins, jump-starts your metabolism, and stimulates digestion.
Toxins enter the body from external factors such as food, environment, stress, etc. Hot water can dissolve toxins from your system just as it dissolves grease from dirty dishes, and it can accomplish this gradually, naturally, and comfortably.
Just as you boil/cook food in hot water to make it easier to assimilate and to kill the food’s impurities, drinking hot water does the same in your body. It assists in the digestive process by further cooking food you are having trouble digesting in your gut, and dissolves toxins to be easily eliminated.
Fill a thermos flask with the water and sip it throughout the day. Enjoy seeping in teas and spices, which bring added benefits depending on your selected mixture. Some recipes to try are found below:
Balancing electrolytes: lemon, lime, salt, and ginger
Anti-inflammatory and energy: lemon, turmeric and cayenne (just a pinch)
Metabolism boost: basil leaves, fresh ginger, cumin and fennel
Soothing and calming traditional tea: cumin, coriander and fennel
Eliminate gas and aid digestion: Cinnamon stick, whole clove, cardamom
