1. As soon as you wake up, go to the bathroom. Everybody poops…if you’re not, something is wrong. W-r-o-n-g, wrong. Just kidding, but seriously. Whether or not you have regular, healthy elimination each morning is a great indicator of your digestive functionality and overall health. Start paying attention to what your body is doing first thing in the morning and make it a habit to “go” before you do anything else with your day.
3. Before eating breakfast or drinking coffee, drink a room temperature glass of water with some lemon squeezed in it. This is one of the easiest, and basically free, ways to take care of your digestive system at the start of your day. Lemon water will boost your immune system, balance your pH, aid in digestion as it gets your tummy basically all warmed up for the brekky that is about to hit it, hydrates the lymph system, and vitamin C also is associated with skin-clearing benefits.
So, that’s it for today, folks. Keeping it super simple, with more instruction coming soon!
