MAY STIMULATE THE BODY TO ALKALINIZE; ANTI-INFLAMMATORY; CLEARS LYMPH GLANDS IN SKIN AND ORGANS; MAY IMPROVE WATER ABSORPTION BY THE BODY TISSUES.
ALL DAY TREATED WATER (DRINK AT LEAST ONE BATCH. I DRINK IT ALL DAY AND NIGHT)
32 0Z 0F PURIFIED WATER (THIS IS for a batch of water. I drink at least 64oz a day even though I probably need more. Divide your weight in pounds by 2 = oz of water per day even if it’s hot or you work out)
-JUICE OF WHOLE MED LEMON
-OR 2-4 TSPS OF BRAGG’S ORGANIC UNREFINED APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
-(OPTIONAL) STEVIA TO SWEETEN
-DASH OF CAYENNE PEPPER
OTHER POSSIBLE INGREDIENTS TO BASIC VINEGAR WATER:
-1 TSP OF TURMERIC (FOR PAIN) AND A DASH OF BLACK PEPPER
-SUBSTITUTE 8-12OZ OF FRESH GINGER TEA FOR SOME OF THE WATER FOR INFLAMMATION/COLDS
SLICE GINGER ABOUT THE SIZE OF YOUR PALM ( OR HALF IF YOU ARE A MAN)
INTO THIN SLICES (THE LONGER AND THINNER IS BETTER)
CAN BE UNPEELED.
PLACE IN 32 OZ OF WATER AND COOK IN SLOW-COOKER OVERNIGHT ON LOW.
I drink the treated water with ginger tea as often as possible. You can mix the ginger tea as part of your treated water. I use a whole packet of stevia. Yum!
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, BLOOD SUGAR BALANCER
Easy recipe for a refreshing, naturally sweet tea you can make ahead and refrigerate:
3 sticks of cinnamon
2 quarts or so of water
cook sticks in water overnight
keep on low
should be a beautiful red color.
Drink and enjoy.
WHEN MAKING HERBAL INFUSIONS, USUALLY WE DO NOT BRING TO A BOIL. THAT DESTROYS THE GOOD STUFF!!
BULLETPROOF COFFEE: (from the book by David Asprey) modified
RATIONALE: Caffeine to clear brain fog and rev up your metabolism. Needs to be high quality, organic,minimally processed, low toxin beans, preferably from South America.
MCT oil easily absorbed by brain. Can be expensive. OK to use just coconut oil and butter. ( 15.00 ON AMAZON, NOW BRAND)
Butter (ghee for dairy intolerant) adds good calories that rev the metabolism and decrease hunger.
Coconut oil contains good fats for skin, hair and brain. Can cause loose stools if it is too much.
FATS decrease irritation of gut and provides brain fuel. Can keep appetite down for 3-4 hrs.
HIGHEST QUALITY ORGANIC COFFEE BEANS YOU CAN AFFORD. ( I USE KICKING HORSE BRAND Kicking Horse Coffee Kick Ass Dark, Whole Bean Coffee, 2.2-Pound Pouch FROM AMAZON.COM) also at Mother’s
A FRENCH PRESS
COFFEE BEAN GRINDER (PREFERABLY ONE THAT YOU CAN SET THE COARSENESS OF THE GRIND)
