One great way to Upgrade your body is adding, drinking (luke)warm lemon water, to your morning routine. David Wolfe: “Lemon water doesn’t just quench thirst better than any other drink – it also
provides our bodies with plenty of vitamins, minerals and vital trace elements. It’s also a great energy booster for when we wake up first thing in the morning as our tissues are dehydrated and
in desperate need of fluid to push out toxins”
Lemons have many other beneficial qualities for the body. Here are a few:
* Better digestion - drinking warm lemon water can help your body with digestion hanks to the citric acid contained in lemon. This acid interacts
with various enzymes in your body and stimulates the secretion of gastric juice.

Yes, drinking lemon water does us good! and how easy is it to drink a glass in the morning and receive all these benefits. :-)
How to do it
When you wake up prepare yourself a delicious warm lemon water, before you eat anything. Add the juice of half of a lemon (organic preferably) to the water and then drink.
Drink it consciously and wait for 30 min before you eat something.
Playing with an intent before drinking it and visualization while drinking it, can enhance the benefits. For example you can set the intent of CLEANSE MY BODY and you could visualize that all toxins and negativity are leaving your body while drinking it. Now let’s toast.
Cheers to your Health!
