Lemon with cold water as a detoxifying body
3.- Detoxifying effects, be prepared
How many people four glasses of water drunk waking ?, How about three, or two, or at least a glass of water ?, The truth is that most do not and are so used to what is normal, only when we change we realize that there is a big difference.
Today most people are dehydrated, the habit of drinking water is lost and thought with synthetic juices in cartons or plastic and / or sodas can replace the body’s water requirements. But it is not so, and we started to notice over time in the form of various diseases; the most common, constipation, stones, skin problems, etc.
The water is so effective in promoting the elimination of toxins from the body that many people come into an extreme state of detoxification. With just a few days drinking water fasting, with or without lemon, they begin to experience all kinds of side effects. Headaches, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, skin rashes, migraine headaches, fatigue, irritability, mood swings, among others. Instantly they blame the water and say “that’s not for me.”
In reality what is happening is that the body’s systems are activated, they begin to function more efficiently as they are supposed to work every day. The lack of liquid does not allow the proper disposal of toxins and accumulate them, when we started with water therapy or to drink water with lemon fasting, we began to stimulate the removal of all those accumulated toxins.
Toxins are hidden everywhere in our body, especially fat cells by stimulating our system the cleaning process begins which releases toxins into the bloodstream for disposal which in turn causes most of the symptoms above. Just as you’re eliminating toxins, they are disappearing symptoms and after a few days you will feel many times better than before starting.
4.- Fighting detox symptoms
The ideal is to let the body do its job, remove toxins and let detox symptoms happen naturally. No drugs, no interruptions. But for some people this is not an option for various reasons, the following are some suggestions to relieve symptoms of detoxification without medication if you believe that you can not stand naturally.
1. Eat something.
Digestion requires a lot of energy, in fact it is one of the functions of the body consumes more energy. Eat something light like a fruit, a vegetable, a simple salad, some kind of nut or seed and this will slow detox. The body diverts energy and cleaning process used to process food that is a priority. This will calm the symptoms and give you time to adjust.
2. Drink less water.
Drinking less water will reduce the cleaning process. Ideally, start with a glass, for example, and go increased up to the amount that works best for you. For example: If water therapy recommends drinking four glass of water in the morning, you can start with a glass, the couple of days increase to two, week three and so on.
3. Physical activity.
Often the symptoms are more psychological than physical, in this case the exercises are helpful. If you feel depressed, unwilling to do anything, and simply “down” then go for a walk in the sun, on the grass with bare feet provides the best results. Running, Sports and stronger exercises promote the production of hormones that make us feel good and help with elimination through the skin (pores, sweating) and breathing.
Note: Most people will not have symptoms of severe detoxification, better instantly feel and see the benefits of drinking water with lemon in just a few days. Those who have an unhealthy diet, consisting mainly of junk food, simple carbohydrates, processed foods, high alcohol intake and a high level of exposure to high environmental toxins will be most affected.
If you have any questions, take a chance before reaching a conclusion on the issue and try to follow this practice for a few weeks. At the end is pretty simple, it does not require much effort or time and you have nothing to lose.
Consume more water during the day eliminating sodas and synthetic juices, drink warm water with lemon in the morning and enjoy better health in a 100% natural.
