Are you one those people, like me, who has to have a cup of coffee first thing in the morning? Well you might like to make a small change after you read this column.

A few weeks ago I decided to change my habits as much as I could and make room for healthier eating/drinking habits.
So every night I would fill my kettle with water, and first thing in the morning I would walk into the kitchen to turn the electric kettle on to make my coffee. I would then go into the bathroom and by the time I finish splashing my face with water to wake up – the kettle would be finishing warming up my water.

Now I do the same routine but with a slight difference I fill my kettle with water, place one lemon on the counter from the fridge, along with the cayenne pepper jar and a cup filled half way with water. As soon as I get up in the morning, I walk into the kitchen to turn the kettle on. I then go into the bathroom and by the time I finish splashing my face with water to wake up – the kettle has finished warming up my water. I then pour the water in the glass half full with room temperature water, squeeze one half of the lemon on top, sprinkle with cayenne and drink.

Not to expose my teeth to the acid, I drink it with a straw, followed by another glass of water before I drink anything else. I have been doing this for a month now and am feeling is awesome.

I have great energy. So much that, I right away take Sasha (my Lab) for a walk and it is even fun now.

This is too easy not to do!

It’s just like washing your face, brushing your teeth. When you drink it, you also cleanse your inside.
Adopting this daily habit has amazing health benefits. Imagine getting sick less, feeling lighter, having regular eliminations, clearer skin, more energy and having a boost in your metabolism leading to weight loss over time.

Doing this ritual every morning provides a super stimulant to the liver, your main detoxing organ in the body. Your liver will release uric acid and create bile to safely eliminate environmental and lifestyle toxins that would otherwise be trapped in your digestive system longer. Remember keeping your liver and digestive system clean and in optimal condition will help your body prevent diseases like cancer in the future. Combining cayenne with lemon increases the detoxing effect and raises the temperature of your body increasing your metabolism.

Just imagine drinking this combination will cleanse your body every single day safely and naturally.

I would recommend you to leave a lemon out of the fridge every night, because lemon at room temperature is easier to juice. One more hint is, don’t forget to squeeze your lemon directly into boiling water, you will destroy the live enzymes in the lemon. This is why I use half of water at room temperature and half hot water.

I plan to do it for the rest of my life. I hope you do too.

Until next week keep cool and healthy!
