So, how can we return to a state of vibrant health? Drink a lot of pure water daily; it assists in eliminating toxins from your body. Avoid taking drugs unnecessarily, but if you must, for whatever reason, take the time to educate yourself on alternatives for that specific condition. And whilst taking your prescribed medication there are various things you can do to assist your body in ridding itself of excess toxins.
In my opinion clean, natural food is better medicine than any drug.
Our circulatory system needs to function well for our bodies to stay healthy, as well as to heal. Feeling cold all the time and having people shudder when your cold hands touch them isn‘t pleasant. Coconut oil, taken internally, may help improve blood flow. It can raise the levels of HDL (good cholesterol), improving the ratio between HDL and LDL (bad cholesterol). Since LDL cholesterol can increase the viscosity of blood, making it thicker, less LDL results in thinner blood, and therefore, better circulation. Start with a ½ tablespoon a day and work up to 1 tablespoon, to give your circulation a boost of energy.
Lemons are nature‘s health food. They provide our bodies with vitamin C, thiamine, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, iron, magnesium, fiber, vitamin B6, calcium, potassium, and copper. Lemons are said to boost the immune system, aid digestion, cleanse various toxins from the body, clear the skin, aid in weight loss, hydrate the lymphatic system and promote healing. No wonder lemons are so popular!

Here are a few ways to relieve constipation. (Keep in mind that we are all unique and our bodies react in different ways.)
1. Mint and Senna Tea
1 tbsp. senna tea leaves
½ tsp. mint leaves
Boil the leaves for one minute in a liter of water. Add a dash of vitamin C and brown sugar to taste. Sip this tea slowly throughout the day, to avoid intestinal cramping.
2. Coconut Oil for Constipation Relief
Take 1 tablespoon of coconut oil every morning on an empty stomach to keep your
digestive tract running smoothly. Use 2 tbsp. for acute constipation.
3. Warm Water
Drinking a cup of warm water several times a day also helps relieve constipation.
I am offering a safe and natural alternative to conventional treatment, but these recipes, ideas and treatment should not be misconstrued or substituted for medical advice. Please always proceed with caution and test it first on a small area, or in small quantities, if you are uncertain. Should you suspect that you or your animal have a medical problem, I urge you to seek professional advice.
