“YOU’RE NOT SICK; YOU’RE THIRSTY. DON’T TREAT THIRST WITH MEDICATION!”
~ DR. F. BATMANGHELIDJ
This statement by Dr. Batmanghelidj is true – our body consists of a large percentage of water, so before trying to resolve a problem with medications, you need to try resolving it by drinking water. Below you can see a few water detox recipes you can prepare at home to boost your digestion and clean your body of toxins.
Orange, lemon and ginger water
Lemon are powerful digestion boosters, ginger can reinforce your immune system, while oranges can improve your circulation. Just peel the ginger and slice it, then repeat the process with the lemon and orange. Add the pieces to a liter of water and drink the water every day to detoxify your body.
According to research, mint is a powerful antioxidant rich in potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamins B and C. It can improve the bile flow in the stomach and soothe the pain. The preparation of this water is easy – just add a couple of fresh mint leaves and enjoy the refreshing beverage.
Water and apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar usually contains a floating substance at the bottom called the “mother” substance which contains most of the nutrients responsible for the liquid’s health benefits. Besides minerals and protein, the “mother” contains probiotics as well, which support the beneficial bacteria in your gut. To prepare the beverage, add 1-2 tablespoons of ACV in a glass of water and drink the liquid 1-2 times a day along your meals.
Cucumber contains a lot of vitamin K, which can boost your blood flow and accelerate the healing of wounds. The vegetable also prevents water retention and prevents bloating and other digestive problems. It will also promote weight loss, which is why it’s often a part of different diets. To prepare the water, slice one cucumber and add a few pieces to a glass of water. You can also add some pineapple chunks and a couple mint leaves for a more refreshing flavor.
