Start your day with a Morning Detox

Updated: Oct 5, 2018

Starting the day with a morning detox supports your body to rid itself of any toxins before you start your day. By practicing these two daily habits, you will begin to see benefits.

1. Prepare a simple lemon-based tea for internal detoxifying and cleansing

As an Ayurvedic practitioner, I’ve long encouraged people to drink hot water with fresh lemon juice and a touch of honey.

Benefits include:

a. Improves detoxification

b. Improves digestion

c. Aids in healthy weight management

However, sometimes the sourness of the lemon juice is just too off-putting for some palates.

As an alternative, try Canarino instead, to enjoy all the detoxifying benefits of lemon water without the sour taste. Honey is optional.

Canarino recipe:

1. With a sharp knife or peeler, thinly shave off a 1-inch long strip of peel off the lemon, one per cup. Take care not to include the white pith.

2. Put the strip of peel into a cup or mug, and pour boiling water over it.

3. Steep for 3 to 5 minutes to get a delicious pale yellow cup of lemony Canarino.

2. Use a tongue scraper

Add this simple technique to your morning routine for fresh breath, dental health and improved digestion!

Tongue scraping benefits:

a. Removes any build-up on the tongue, which, if left untreated, can lead to bad breath and may house a significant number of bacteria.

b. Clearing your tongue of the unhealthy coating, will also improve your ability to taste your food, which will result in a deeper sense of satisfaction at every meal. Not only will you eat less, you will also be less likely to add extra sugar, salt, or other spice to the food to make it tastier.

c. Many medicinal herbs have their healing effects from the first contact with receptors on the tongue. Enhance their benefits by placing them on a clean surface.

This tongue scraper is a beautiful design at a great price:
