Morning Protocol: Apple Cider Vinegar and Lots of Water!
Morning Protocol: 1 Tablespoon of Organic, Raw Apple Cider Vinegar in 8 oz of water. Followed by a quart (32 oz) of the purest form of water available. You can also drink herbal teas. This morning routine has several very important purposes.
#1 Raw Apple Cider Vinegar is fermented so it adds anti-oxidants and natural pro-biotics to your system to help you fight off illness.
#2 Apple Cider Vinegar helps to alkalynize your body to bring your Ph into a balanced range. Remember the goal is to achieve a Ph of 7 for both your saliva and your urine. This also helps give your digestive system a good jump start.
#3 By doing this you re-hydrate your body from a nights fast. As we sleep our bodies tend to become slightly dehydrated.
#4 Hydrating your body also increases mental and emotional balance and helps you feel more energized for facing the day ahead.
#5 The goal is to drink 1 oz of water for every pound of body weight for optimum bodily performance. If you follow these suggestions it will definitely help with your daily water intake!
This might seem tough at first but once you get used to doing it and notice the benefits, after about 21 days it will become a habit for you and you will begin to notice that you wake up super thirsty.
Avoid drinking coffee first thing in the morning. Caffeine further dehydrates the body that is already dehydrated from sleep.
