Awkward Topics That Needn't Be:),--DIGESTION

Elysha's Top 6 Simple Tips for Better Digestion

1) Don't eat at least 2 hours before bed

2) At least a pint of water upon waking in the morning, preferably with lime or lemon juice in it. 


4) Watch your placement of fruit.  Eat fruit alone or with greens, NOT AFTER OR DURING A MEAL.  This varies from person to person, maybe this is not an issue for you.  If it is, give it a shot, eliminate the fruit during or after a meal and see if your digestion improves. I eat them in the morning at least 20 mins before I eat anything else, except greens.  Eat your green smoothies! :)   

5) Drink water at least 20 minutes before a meal.  NOT DURING!  If you need something during a meal, choose apple-cider vinegar water, or "Sassy" water, made from an essential oil metabolic blend from doTERRA. 
5 drops of doTERRA's "Slim and Sassy" metabolic essential oil blend per quart of water.  Drink throughout the day.  
Apple-Cider Vinegar Water
4 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar (the kind with "The Mother" present, I use Bragg's) per quart of water,
and about the same amount of honey, 4 tsp... or to taste.

6) Stop eating your meal when you are 80% full.  It does not help ANYONE if you over eat, especially your digestion. :)

At the end of the day, the most important thing is self-love.  These are guidelines with which I have had great success.  Contour them to you and what works for you.  If you fall off the wagon, no worries... laugh, love yourself and joyfully leap back on. Make it SUSTAINABLE for you! 

Enjoy the now! Love the now!
