These days, with the wealth of “wellness information” at our disposal, I’m sure it’s nothing new to most of you that a healthy gut plays a major role in our overall health and wellbeing. Many autoimmune diseases are a result of compromised intestinal health, also referred to as “LEAKY GUT”.
In my own journey of healing from Hashimoto’s Disease, I have learnt about, and implemented, a variety of protocols into my daily habits – which I often share with my clients.
Aside from all the diet changes, probiotics, supplements and natural products one can take to begin healing your gut, an easy, yet effective change one can make, is to daily drink CAYENNE PEPPER TEA.
Though it may seem counterintuitive, Cayenne pepper is a great remedy for healing leaky gut.
I have a recipe for a tea that I try to drink twice a day – first thing in the morning and then at night – but one can also drink it about 30 minutes before each meal.
For those who are not sure of the recipe in the image provided, the ingredients are:
– A quarter teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper, Tumeric and Cinnamon each, in boiling water.
– A few slices of fresh Lemon or Ginger
– 1 teaspoon of Honey
I often replace the LEMON with APPLE CIDER VINEGAR which in itself has endless benefits too. If you do this, you may want to start with a teaspoon and build up to around two tablespoons – not everyone can handle the taste!!
The Honey is optional, but I do find that it makes everything palatable and enjoyable!
Please understand that this in itself may not completely heal your gut, but is a worthwhile step to take in the healing process. Give it a try and see how you feel. Most clients are surprised by how much they actually like it!
