Drink THIS First Thing in the Morning:
This daily trick can hep you detoxify, improve your digestion and boost your metabolism & energy levels.by Mike Geary-Certified Nutirtion Specialist
Author of the best seller: The Top 101 Foods that FIGHT Aging
You’re bombarded with toxins in today’s modern world…everywhere from the polluted air you breathe, the water you drink, the shampoos and other cosmetics that lather your body with chemicals, and of course, all of the chemical additives, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and other harmful compounds in the food that you eat.
All of these TOXINS can have harmful effects on our body, harming your metabolism and hormones, impairing your digestive system and zapping your energy levels. If I could tell you ONE thing that your could do each morning right as you wake lup to help your body eliminate some of these toxins, improve your digestion, stimulate your metabolism, and BOOST your energy, would you do it?Of course you would…and it takes less than one minute!

Here’s the trick

Immediately upon waking each day, squeeze about 1/2 to 1 full lemon (depending on the size of the lemon)into an 8oz glass of warm or room temperature purified water.This is gentler on your body first thing in the morning compared to ice cold water. I’ve found that slicing the lemon into quarters before squeezing by hand is easier than squeezing halves. Drink this at least 10 minutes before eating any food for the day.

Make sure to use fresh organic lemons to make this drink and not bottled lemon juice. You want to use organic lemons to avoid the pesticides that can accumulate.

3 Major benefits of this morning drink to your body, health, and energy:

According to a leading health publication, TheAlternativeDaily.com:

The health promoting benefits of lemons are powerful. For centuries, it has been known that lemons contain powerful antibacterial, antiviral and immune boosting components. We know that lemons are a great digestive aid and liver cleanser. Lemons contain citric acid, magnesium, bioflavonoids, vitamin C, pectin, calcium and limonene, which supercharge our immunity so that the body can fight infection.

Lemons are considered one of the most alkalizing foods you can eat. This may seem untrue as they are acidic on their own. However, in the body lemons are alkaline; the citric acid does not create acidity once it has been metabolized. The minerals in lemons are actually what helps to alkalize the blood. Most people are too acidic (from eating too much sugar and grains), and drinking warm lemon water helps reduce overall acidity, drawing uric acid from the joints. This reduces the pain and inflammation which many people feel. And the American Cancer Society recommends warm lemon water to encourage regular bowel movements.”

Benefits that you can enjoy:

Improves your digestion: Lemon juice helps your body improve digestion and stimulates bile production. Lemon juice can even be an aid for heartburn and indigestion. Boosts your energy for the day: Even just the scent of lemon juice has been shown to improve your mood and energy levels and reduce anxiety. Plus the detoxifying effect and alkalizing effect of fresh organic lemon juice can improve your energy through the removal of toxins from your body.
Helps you to lose fat: Since lemon juice helps to improve your digestive system aids in removal of toxins, and increases your energy levels, this all combines together to help you to lose body fat as well through improving your hormonal balance…Yet another reason to add warm lemon water to your daily routine!

Real US History of Memorial Day beginning

Real US History of Memorial Day beginning

“Memorial Day was started by former slaves on May, 1, 1865 in Charleston, SC to honor 257 dead Union Soldiers who had been buried in a mass grave in a Confederate prison camp. They dug up the bodies and worked for 2 weeks to give them a proper burial as gratitude for fighting for their freedom. They then held a parade of 10,000 people led by 2,800 Black children where they marched, sang and celebrated.

Thanks to Abstrakt Goldsmith for this nugget of history that most of us never learned in school and Punk Colors for sharing.”

Just as a reminder, please don’t “pigeon hole” someone to where you think they are at! But of course, that would be passing judgment now wouldn’t it? We are in no position to ever judge another. As nothing remains the same, they are most likely just in transition which is a great way to look at things! Everything is transitional. Allow for change, not only in your life but in others. People will change. So will you.

Poems: In Book called Convergence

Image

 

In 2013 I  had 3 poems chosen to be included in Talent Flush book of poems called Convergence.  Here they are below:

 

In My Dreams

Somewhere in-between, I found you in my dreams.

Was it in your kiss (something I wouldn’t want to miss)?

Or is it in your smile that goes on for miles?

I fit so well underneath your arm; I’m balanced within your charm.

Speak softly to me with that accent, for you must be heaven sent.

Our paths were crossed for a reason, and not just for a season.

This is where my love resides, where both our worlds will not collide.

In the air and in your heart, I am there and will never part.

 

Love is the Fire

Love is the fire within us all.

It is Love that keeps us from a fall.

Love is not diminished when given away,

Love is all there is, pure Love is always that way.

So give a little each passing day,

Give freely to all along the way.

For Love is the fire in us all,

We are one with the Love, one Love, we are Love.

The infinite Love Energy is that which binds us all.

 

My Perfect Reflection

My perfect reflection is staring back at me.

The beauty & love within, is more than anyone can see.

You romance my soul like no other, you are my lover.

Your electrifying presence fills me and sustains

With waves of you rolling through me, again, again and again.

We are floating in pure essence, my perfect reflection and me.
