As a holistic professional, I have studied and tried various ways to cleanse my internal system after I have woken up in the morning. In holistic science, it is believed necessary to do so as your body needs to wake up just as your brain does.
I like to describe it as, you wouldn't expect to run a marathon when you wake up. So, why expect your body to do a ton of digesting as soon as you wake up?
I recommend drinking one of these teas when you wake up, and as always, opt for organic:
1. Ginger tea
Ginger has been known by ancient Chinese and Indian culture to aid the digestive system. That's why they recommend it when you are feeling nauseas or have a tummy ache. Ginger is an anti-fungal so it clears the digestive tract of any unwanted bacteria hanging around.
How to make: Place a piece of ginger in hot water and leave for 5 mins. Leave ginger in as you sip it down.
2. Garlic tea
This may sound crazy! However, this potion has been around for thousands of years in the eastern world of healing. Particularly, rare black garlic, is an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Which supports the digestive systems natural releasing of toxins.
How to make: Place three cloves of garlic into hot water. Let steep for 3-5 minutes and then drink water. You can also chew on garlic once you have sipped the tea.
3. Lemon tea
You've probably heard this before because it's true. For a light digestive boost, drink some hot water with lemon when you wake up. Lemon equalizes alkalinity which can be helpful with the digestive tract as, our bowels' Ph levels tend to fluctuate because of all the work that it has to do. Having a cup every morning will help put your digestive area at ease. However, if you already have high acidity in your bowels, opt for another tea mentioned above.
How to make: Place a wedge of lemon in hot water. Let it steep for 3-5 minutes and then sip on the water.
