Why I start every day with warm water and lemon.
And why you should too.
Every single ailment that the body has, can be alleviated through the digestion system. The balance of good bacteria and proper elimination (pooping!) can heal so many chronic illnesses that even cancer patients are resorting to alkaline diets (scientifically proven to keep the healthy bacteria in our guts alive and well) and colonics.
One of the best ways to keep your digestive system running like a well oiled machine is warm water with fresh lemon first thing in the morning. While we are sleeping, our digestive track takes a much needed break. But when we wake up and don’t necessarily give it time to wake up, it can mess with our elimination processes. When you sip on some lemon water, it stimulates our digestive juices that help break down the food we eat.
