Before you commit to a juice cleanse or quit coffee cold turkey add this morning routine and make it a habit! If there is one thing that I can’t go a day without, it’s a glass of warm lemon water in the morning.

It is beyond amazing what a cup of warm lemon water first thing in the morning can do for your body, your immune system, brain and soul for that matter. Make sure to wait 30 minutes before eating breakfast, as this will ensure your body gets the most energy and nutrients from the food you eat. Use fresh lemons (preferably organic and locally grown) and mineral rich filtered water. Warm water and lemon is a natural energizer. It hydrates and oxygenates the body, leaving it feeling refreshed and revitalized for quite some time. As opposed to coffee, whose effects are short lived.
This cocktail helps to flush away unwanted materials and toxins left from the digestive process. It also boosts energy and improves mood. Lemons also promote clear thinking and help reduce anxiety and depression. It also makes an amazing pre-workout drink.

8 Benefits to Drinking Warm Lemon Water Every Morning
1) Aids Digestion. Lemon juice flushes out unwanted materials and toxins from the body. It encourages the liver to produce bile which is an acid that is required for digestion.
2) Cleanses Your System / is a Diuretic. The citric acid in lemons helps maximize enzyme function, which stimulates the liver and aids in detoxification.
3) Boosts Your Immune System. Lemons are high in vitamin C, which is great for fighting colds.  They’re high in potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) found in lemons demonstrates anti-inflammatory effects
4) Balances pH Levels. Lemons are one of the most alkalizing foods for the body. Sure, they are acidic on their own, but inside our bodies they’re alkaline (the citric acid does not create acidity in the body once metabolized).
5) Clears Skin. The vitamin C component as well as other antioxidants helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes and it helps to combat free radical damage. It can be applied directly to scars or age spots to help reduce their appearance.
6) Promotes Healing. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C), found in abundance in lemons, promotes wound healing
7) Hydrates Your Lymph System. Warm water and lemon juice supports the immune system by hydrating and replacing fluids lost by your body.

Why You Need To Switch Over To Using Himalayan Pink Salt NOW!

Adding salt to foods helps certain molecules in those foods more easily release into the air, thus helping the aroma of the food, which is important in our perception of taste.

I used to be the queen of bland food. Table salt always tasted like chemicals, consuming too much of it usually followed with dizziness, bloating, heartburn and the “salt headache”. Then I discovered the mineral-rich delicate pink Himalayan salt and it’s “clean” flavor. Once you try Himalayan salt, I can promise you that you'll never want to use commercial salt again – I know I don't.

Table salt is different from salt from natural sources. It has been processed to remove most of the natural elements. Grocery store salt consists of mostly chemical sodium chloride. If the sodium chloride is too high, re-crystallization of the table salt takes place. It poisons the system because those substances cannot be eliminated. Our table salt is actually 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents, and iodine. Dried at over 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, the excessive heat alters the natural chemical structure of the salt. With the use of rigorous advertising, the salt industry is successful in convincing you there are actually health advantages to adding potentially toxic iodine and fluoride to salt.
Eating common table salt causes excess fluid in your body tissue, which can contribute to unsightly cellulite, rheumatism, arthritis, gout, kidney and gall bladder stones.
The “Pink Salt”- Himalayan Salt because of its taste and color appeal, was used as currency in the Ancient times. The Himalayan Crystal salt eliminates harmful bacteria and toxins from your body so there is no toxic build up. Unlike many other sea salts, Natural Himalayan crystal salt is pure, uncontaminated, unrefined, and contains up to 84 natural minerals. It is by far the purest salt available on earth and is absolutely uncontaminated with any toxins or pollutants. This tasty salt can actually take care of dehydration due to the low sodium and high electrolyte count – the opposite of what iodized white salt does.

It is 200 Million plus years old and has been nurtured by earth energy and pressure over this time. This ancient sea salt has been alchemized over millions of years into a special energized crystalline form in a process analogous to how coal gradually becomes a diamond. The 84 minerals in this salt are in an ionic form which is molecular instead of colloidal like regular sea salt. It is therefore more easily absorbable and much more use-able by our bodies than any sea salt. Sea salt because of its relatively large size is difficult for the body to digest and use whereas ionic Himalayan salt is molecular and virtually no digestion is required.

Bathing with Himalayan Crystal Salt Bath Crystals is highly recommended by many healthcare professionals. As the minerals are absorbed in the body by the warmth, the alkaline/acidity balance harmonize and blood pressure will normalize. Skin conditions will be cleansed as bacteria, toxins, and other debris are pulled out. Your skin will be stimulated and rejuvenated.

Himalayan salt large crystal rocks are also used as salt lamps. These pretty salt lamps help reduce allergens, moisture, pollutants, and electromagnetic frequencies, and create potentially soothing effects inside your home.

Odd, Sticky, Nasty But Worth Every Gag And Penny - Shilajit

Meet your new best friend with a hard to pronounce name, a deeply unpleasant almost unbearable odor and a price that will set you back $80/month. I’m warning you it is odd, sticky and nasty; LITERALLY the worst tasting supplement I have ever tasted, but I promise you it will worth every gag and penny.
Shilajit or mumijo is a blackish-brown powder or an exudate from high mountain rocks in the Himalayans mountains between India and Nepal, although it has been also found in Russia, Tibet, Afghanistan, and in the north of Chile. Used for centuries by the Ayurvedic medicine, as a rejuvenator and as antiaging compound.
Shilajit is extremely rich in plant-source ‘organic’ minerals. Most assays show that Shilajit, depending on its source, contains between 70 and 85 complex minerals and trace elements. The main active components in Shilajit are macromolecules known as fulvic acids. It is composed of humus and organic plant material that has been compressed by layers of rock and mixed with microbial metabolites. This humus and organic plant matter then oozes from the rocks of the Himalayas as they become warm in the summer months. Shilajit is extremely rich in fulvic acids. Fulvic acid is considered to be one of the most powerful natural electrolytes known to man. It enhances the permeability of cell membranes, and can improve the healthy permeability of the digestive tract, renal membranes and capillaries.
Shilajit is a thick, syrup-like substance that forms on rock. It is created by the various plants that grow in the surrounding area and is extremely high in minerals and other nutrients.  It forms infrequently and is therefore highly valued; it can take up to a month to collect a pound raw shilajit
