The Simplicity of Lemon and Water

It is a great time to cleanse ensuring you are helping your body with environmental factors and stress.  When in the clinic working as a Dr Chinese medicine, I speak often about the role of the Liver in being the Commander of the body and organs.  When the Commander is unhappy everyone is unhappy, so it is important always to soothe the Liver, calming the body.  The role of the Liver is to remove toxins, performing this essential metabolic function. So cleansing the Liver to start your day, ensures the body is running correctly, enabling you to have more energy.  As the Livers role within the body is to support the muscles by supplying them with blood, when you are sleeping the blood returns to the Liver to be cleansed, again lemon and hot water are your go-to here.
