Summer Detoxing Beverages

Aaah, Summer is here. In Michigan the temp is hovering over 90 degrees. Sweat is plentiful, sunshine is abundant and sunburns are often inevitable. Summer is the time when our heart, stomach and spleen work on repairing themselves. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), each organ has an emotional component associated with it so when we're working on repairing imbalances, we must also look to the emotional component. The heart is joy/love; the stomach and spleen represent worry. Working through these emotions is important for lasting health.

The summer months bring about hot weather, longer days, holidays, gatherings and overall fun. In order to make the best of your health this summer, here are some easy peasy detoxing beverage recipes.

  1. Simple Lemon water: Lemons help replenish vitamin C & potassium, helps with digestion, and is weight reduction friendly.

  2. Watermelon water: great at preventing muscle soreness, providing antioxidants and amino acids.

  3. Cucumber, Lime & a pinch of Himalayan Salt: this blend will provide internal cooling and also re-mineralize your body.

  4. Pineapple & Ginger Water: this blend helps reduce bloating, regulate sugar and soothes stomach discomfort.

  5. Raspberry & Orange: provides tons of antioxidants, refreshing flavor and Vitamin C.

  6. Lemon & Cayenne pepper water: boosts metabolism and digestion, supports cardiovascular health and is an anti-inflammatory recipe.

  7. Add a fruit and mint: Mint helps digestion, reduces summer acne, and helps keep skin fresh.

  8. Apple Cider Vinegar Water: less bloating, improved digestion, LOTS of minerals/vitamins, helps cardiovascular health.

  9. Coconut water with Lemon & Mint: this refreshing option will help with digestion, Vitamin C, detoxing and electrolyte balance.

  10. Lemon & Berry water: Tons of antioxidants, digestive supporting and overall immune supporting options here.

Whatever your drink of choice this summer, try to limit your added sugar and alcohol intake as those are dehydrating. Make sure you stay hydrated and healthy this summer!

In health,
