Today I woke up with a headache and a stuffy nose, something I am used to when going through a detox. The cleansing effect of the detox drink and limited calories has made me understand that the poisons are coming out one way or another. Yesterday I drank the 60 ounces of the detox aide, 40 ounces of herb tea, and 60 ounces of water. The importance of hydration when detoxing cannot be stressed enough. Water helps the poisons break free from your body.
Today’s detox is the same as yesterday, Starting my day off with 2 ounces of ASEA, following between 900 and 1000 calories a day, and drinking the Spicy Lemonlic Aide. Exercising is the same as well.
The only addition today is that I’m adding a ginger, turmeric, clove, cinnamon, and black pepper tea instead of the herbal tea. Each one of these spices carry an abundance of nutrients which when combined with the detox I think it will help my body regain a more balanced atmosphere. Plus, I love these spices when mixed together and sweetened with some stevia. The black pepper enhances the absorption of the curcumin in the turmeric.
Black Spice Tea
- 1/4 teaspoon each ground ginger, turmeric, clove, and cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Place in a paper tea filter. Pour boiling water over tea filter in large mug. Cover and let steep for 4 minutes. Enjoy with a drop or two of liquid stevia (plain is great, too). It has a warming sensation, and also soothes away sore throats. It took care of my stuffy nose instantly.
