Water times of day

When is it best to drink structured water?

Morning: All health traditions seem to recommend starting off the day by drinking plenty of water (16 ozs or more). Avoid ice and refridgerated water. If you find it easier to drink, warm up the water slightly (especially in winter).

In traditional Chinese Acupuncture, each meridian is at its high point during two hours of the day. Water directly affects bowel movements and digestion, so it may help to drink water at the following times:

  • 5-7am Large Intestine Meridian high point: colon, bowel movements – drink plenty of water at this time
  • 7-9am Stomach Meridian high point: digestion – if you haven’t already, drink plenty of water and then have breakfast

Rule of thumb: Allow 1/2 hour before eating, after you’ve drunk water.

Afternoon, evening: The two Water Element Meridians are the Bladder and the Kidney. So you might want to experiment with drinking water at those times of day: Read more…

Pomegranates for smooth move

Last night I picked 4 medium/small pomegranates off our little organic tree (planted last year), put the seeds in the VitaMix and blended them with a little water. It was pretty tart (as in sour) so I added some organic honey and a huge organic apple. Delicious!

The smoothie definitely had a grainy texture, what with all those seeds – but I went right off to sleep and my eyes felt relaxed when I woke (usually they’re tense from computer work). I had what felt like indigestion in the early hours of the morning BUT: before breakfast and after lunch had 2 great bowel movements, normal in every way except …huge. No exaggeration.

I’m impressed. Forget constipation or small BMs. Go for the pomegranates!

Here’s a great list of the multiple benefits of pomegranates – you’re bound to recognize your own symptoms & needs on their list, so check it out! (And that website looks like an excellent source of info on all sorts of health conditions. Suggestion: go for the vegan or purely plant-based options; avoid meat, fish, eggs, dairy.)

Liver Detox

If you’ve never heard of Dr Schulze and his HerbDoc.com website, it’s time to go visit! His super-powerful herbal remedies and detox programs really work, according to those who use them.

I just did the 5-Day Liver Detox. It was easy – plenty to eat and/or drink, no hunger at any time – and I particularly enjoyed getting back onto carrot/beet juice after a very long time. (The juices are optional, not required.)

You can choose the type of Liver Detox you do – depending on whether you normally eat a junk food diet, a vegetarian diet, or whatever. I did the “Advanced” Detox because I wanted to get the maximum out of the Detox. Read more…
