The Five Best Summertime Detox Beverages
Summertime and the living is easy, except it gets hot. Some places get really hot but not so humid, others get hot and humid. Either way, it's a time for refreshing cool or cold drinks. It's possible to boost your health, detoxify, and alkalize while drinking a refreshing beverage.
Here are five tips for refreshing healthy summer time beverages:
(1) Try a cooling mint drink. This recipe combines mint with cumin powder to offer antiseptic, cleansing, and detoxification qualities. The mint is good for digestion, nausea, and morning sickness.
Gather up 1.5 cups of fresh organic or home grown mint leaves and rinse them off. Place them into a blender with one-half cup of purified water. Add one teaspoon of cumin powder and a half teaspoon of Indian or Hawaiian black salt, which you may have to obtain from a specialty store. Add three to four teaspoons of fresh lemon juice.
Turn the blender on and blend into a paste. Take the paste and mix it with water at a one-to-three ratio, or one-fourth paste to three-fourths water. Add raw sugar, Stevia, or honey according to your sweet tooth. Strain if necessary and chill or add ice cubes.
(2) Try a watermelon-cucumber smoothie. Concerned about the aluminum residue from chemtrails or from any history of vaccinations? Maybe you're concerned about Alzheimer's because of too many "senior moments."
Cucumbers are very high in silica, and silica is a great aluminum detox agent. Aluminum toxicity is associated with neurological disorders and Alzheimer's.
Silica is great for building bones and connective tissue also. Watermelon is much more than pink water. It's a very nutritious refreshing summer time food.
So simply combine them. One cucumber sliced or diced and added to a three-fourths watermelon filled blender, blended then chilled is a delicious, nutritious summer detox. Organic cucumbers don't need to be peeled; conventional cucumbers should be peeled.
