The morning following: dealing with a hangover
First thing to do after waking up in the morning and feeling sick from overconsumption of alcohol is actually not to have coffee right away, but rather you want to DETOX and alkalize your body. Simple, inexpensive steps:
Boil water and mix it with clean, room temperature water to make it lukewarm. Add fresh squeezed lemon, a splash of Apple cider vinegar, a dash of Himalayan sea salt and a sprinkle of Cayenne pepper. Mix and drink.
The combination of these ingredients can help energize your body, detoxify the liver and kidneys, help with motility and intestines, and alkalize your blood. When your body is alkaline, it is energized, can help fight dis-ease, and help recover from any health issues after.
Should the apple cider vinegar be non-tolerable, it is ok to omit it from the drink, however make sure to still use the fresh squeezed lemon with the rest of the above ingredients.
