Lemon And Honey
My day starts out with a large cup of warm lemon water with a bit of honey, and twenty minutes of coconut oil-swishing, not at the same time, mind you, but these are the first two things I do, lemon water first, makes my dragonia breath go away and my mouth primed for the swishin’. Why lemon water first thing in the morning??? Glad you asked.
Here are several reasons: It’s great for clear skin, makes it vibrant and bright! The vitamin C helps to boost your immune system, and decreases lines and wrinkles, the lemon helps to purge toxins from you body because it acts as a natural diuretic. It also helps in the production of intestinal mucus which aids in the flushing out of toxins from the body.
Need more energy?
The honey acts as an instant energy booster. Water helps clear your mind by providing fresh blood to your brain, and lemon activates negatively charged enzymes in your stomach – a great way to combat positively charged enzymes that react with the food you eat adversely, leading to it being digested poorly. Moreover the scent of lemon is known to be a natural relaxant and can help uplift your mood.
Dehydration is one of the leading causes of illness, this is an easy way to combat the eight to ten hours you spent sleeping the night before. We all awaken a bit dehydrated and then run around like chickens with our heads cut-off in the morning getting ready for the day and we forget to drink, most of us reach for coffee first, which is, one, a diuretic and two, dehydrating, try lemon water first thing and you’ll feel a big difference
Lack of water and essential fluids in the lymphatic system can make you feel sluggish and fatigued, lead to constipation, disturbed sleep, high or low blood pressure, stress and an all-round lack in mental function. The benefit of drinking this mixture early in the morning is that it helps hydrate your entire lymphatic system that not only beats all the above symptoms but also improves your immunity.
