- Pause before eating to get your juices flowing,
When you think about eating some food that you really love for a few seconds, you will start to salivate. The digestive juices start flowing throughout your digestive system. This lays the foundation for proper digestion. Everyone knows you can’t build a house without a foundation. Getting your juices flowing before you start eating is the foundation for your proper digestion. I like to say a short prayer of blessing and gratitude before I eat. That gives my body time to get the juices flowing!
2 Stay hydrated,
Every cell in your body has to have water in order to function. Drinking coffee, carbonated and/or caffeinated beverages, black and green teas are dehydrating. Even bottled juices are other than hydrating. That’s right! To hydrate your body you need to have pure water! You might put in a teaspoon of algae powder, or a squirt of lemon, but otherwise only pure water is going to hydrate your body. You can use Willard Water, Crystal Energy Tincture, a quart crystal, or a pinch of salt into your water to make it even more absorbable. The rule of thumb is to drink a half ounce of water for every pound of body weight. So, if you weight 100 pounds, your daily water intake should be about 50 ounces. Symptoms of mild dehydration are brain fog, tiredness, headache and irritability.
3 Chew your food to liquid before swallowing.
You’ve got about 27 feet of tubing and most of it is in your belly, winding back and forth with your stomach, spleen, pancreas, liver, kidneys, bladder, and more! It’s not open like a donut with a big hole in the middle! Since you don’t have teeth in your stomach, if you swallow hunks of food, they can get stuck in the crooks and crannies. If they get lodged there, then they will decay! After awhile, the decay and its byproducts will overwhelm your immune system. This leads to leaky gut and parasites and all kinds of other challenges that can be avoided by simply chewing your food. So! Every time you eat, please please be aware to chew your food to liquid. This also starts digestion of the starch and sugar in your food. If you eat something sweet, notice that the longer you chew it the sweeter it gets until it’s gone. Nothing left to swallow!
Do a little experimenting for yourself. Chewing is free!
Plus all your teeth have meridian endings and reflex points for your whole body. Chewing is a great reflexology treatment for your whole body!
4 Sleep slightly inverted. Inversion is an ancient yoga longevity technique.
Put 8”-10″ lift under the foot of your bed so you sleep slightly inverted. Do not use a pillow.. I use a neck roll for my back and my side.. This will turn off your daytime adrenaline hormones and turn on your nighttime hormones. Sleeping horizontal with a pillow does not get you inverted. You will sleep more soundly and wake more refreshed. Use an eye cover if necessary so you sleep in the dark, and earplugs to sleep in the quiet.
