Give your bowels & digestion a boost with this natural tonic
It is best to move your bowels first thing in the morning. Upon rising drink a cup of hot water with fresh lemon and ginger. This really awakens the digestive system, flushes out the accumulated toxins and gets your bowels going. Hot water and herbal teas are preferable to coffee as they are they will not aggravate the nervous system, they relax the bowels, are easy to digest and will stimulate the digestive juices. Those suffering from a particularly sluggish system, try taking a mild digestive and laxative ayurvedic tonic called Triphala - a combination of antioxidant rich- bowel nourishing fruits.
What You'll Need
- Cup of hot water with a slice of fresh lemon & ginger
- Triphala Tablets (try Pukka Herbs or Maharishi Ayurveda brands)
What You'll Do
- Upon rising in the morning, pour yourself a cup of hot water with fresh lemon & ginger.
- Take a triphala supplement before going to bed, or as instructed. It is best taken at night at bed to aid morning bowel movements. Gentle squats will also help to encourage bowel movements
