Our world is filled with toxic agents – from the food we eat to the air we breathe and even the electronics we use for communication. Unfortunately, as we come in contact with these toxins, free radicals are formed within the body that we get not only from these toxic agents, but also from stress, emotional disturbances, and other negative emotions.
This is why detoxification is necessary to get rid of the free radicals. Most people think detoxifying involves something that actually means deprivation. There are now different ways for detoxification, which do not involve hunger, eating weird food, colonics, and drinking strange combinations for juice. Below you will a recipe that does not just detoxify the body, but also provides you with other benefits, including rapid and healthy weight loss:
- One cup of warm water
- A teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
- Juice from one medium size lemon
- ½ inch of fresh ginger root or ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- A teaspoon of raw honey
In a pitcher with a cup of warm water, combine all the ingredients listed above. You can start drinking the lemon elixir first thing in the morning – meaning when you still haven’t taken any kind of drink or food. If you experience any kind of discomfort, particularly in the chest area, remove the apple cider vinegar. You can use it again after three days and this time, only add half a teaspoon instead of one teaspoon. Repeat this method if there is still some chest discomfort.
What Makes This Elixir Good for You?
The ingredients in this drink can help you with the detoxification process. The apple cider vinegar has been known to aid proper digestion, so you can move your bowels regularly. ACV is also useful in regulating your blood sugar and has enzymes and potassium. Meanwhile, raw honey has vitamins and minerals as well as enzymes that can help cleanse your liver. This way, removing toxins and flushing out the fat from the body will be so much easier to accomplish.
Finally, the star of this drink is the lemon, which has many benefits, including providing you with lots of vitamin C. Lemon is also a known blood purifier and can help make the body become more alkaline, despite its acidity. It has cleansing agents that serve as tonic for your liver, so that it can produce more bile.
Combining all these ingredients can provide you with an effective detoxification method that also aids in faster weight loss.
