Lemon WaterHow you start your day is extremely important. We all have our own ritual we do when we get up. Some of us need coffee first thing in the morning, some of us need breakfast first, and some cannot fathom putting anything into our systems. Whatever your ritual is, it is vital for setting the tone and mood to your day. We all know the saying “Waking up on the wrong side of bed”; these words hold truth for those of us that wake up feeling not so great in the morning after a particularly rough night.

In Eastern traditions like Ayurveda, they explain how the choices you make regarding your daily routine either helps in decreasing disease or helps enable it. They believe that drinking warm water with lemon is a great way to help kick start your metabolism. After a few days of trying it, I began to notice a big difference in my mood and in my food choices. Here are a few benefits you can begin to get from adding a simple cup of warm water with lemon to your daily ritual.

A Weight loss Aid: Pectin Fiber in lemons helps to fight hunger cravings. Some studies have shown that people who have an alkaline balanced diet lose weight quicker. I notice a huge difference in my appetite when I forget to drink my warm water. I feel that it keeps me feeling more energetic and satisfied with my food choices.

Helps with Digestion: Stimulation of the gastrointestinal tract and peristalsis is activated by warm water. Lemons and limes are very laden in vitamins and minerals so it helps move toxins out. Basically, it helps things move around quicker.

Helps Balance PH in Your Body: All metabolic processes, including immunity, depend on a delicately balanced pH, which harmonizes electromagnetic energies. The body constantly fights to maintain a blood pH at around 7.35 -7.45 much like our internal thermostat that tries to maintain a 98.6-degree body temperature. Alkaline in the Body is very important for your health. Lemons are acidic but upon entered the body they become “alkaline” that means that the citric acid does not create acidity in the body once metabolized.

Lemon Water on the “Go”: If you are on the go, make your warm water with lemon the night before and put it in a thermos.

Preparation: Warm purified fluoride free water or spring water should be used. Use a whole lemon or lime squeezed into a half glass of the warm water. Try not to add any sweetener to get the maximum results. This should be done first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, some recommend waiting about an hour to eat breakfast.

It is never wise to skip breakfast, always begin your day with something soothing to your system. Beginning your day with a nice warm cup of water with lemon will begin to regulate your system and perhaps be just the medicine you need to add to your morning ritual
