Sometimes the beauty of an herbal remedy is its simplicity. Here’s another dose of something easy that you can file under the category of “Kitchen Medicine.”
This citrus is known for its high amount of Vitamin C and antiseptic properties, but did you also know that it is great for cleansing the body? When we say “cleanse”, we mean it can help the body digest better and more effectively. Who wouldn’t want that? Here’s a morning routine that many herbalists have tried and tested that we think you’re going to love:
- Every morning, after you brush your teeth and before you eat anything, squeeze one or two lemons (start with one) in a glass with a little bit of room temperature or slightly warm water. Drink the liquid with a straw so that the acid does not affect your teeth. Wait 15-20 minutes before eating.
This protocol will help kick start your digestion because lemons help stimulate bile flow and support the liver. And, since you are helping that liver, this means you are also helping your body purify your blood. This daily practice is a gentle cleanse that can take you on the road to healthier bowels. Enjoy!
