Fasting Tip – Be Kind to Your Kids!
Fasting tip – be kind to your kids was a huge lesson I learned on this fast today. Of course… as a mom I am always kind to my kids!
But today I am thinking of two other kids to be kind to – my kidneys! Not only am I giving them a rest during this fast but I decided to blend them up a really cool cleansing drink that I know they will like!
1 grapefruit / peeled
1/4 Bragg’s apple cider vinegar
4 cups water
Using a high-powered blender, blend the grapefruit, apple cider vinegar and water. Adjust taste if needed.
When you are on a fast, you begin to recognize the healing process that takes place not just spiritually, mentally and emotionally, but physically as well. The last few days I have had a bit of cramping in my kidney area. Amazing how our bodies heal on a priority. That is what I love about fasting… I am beginning to understand how fasting gives our bodies opportunity to heal!
Here is another great fasting tip I discovered when I was researching a bit more. I learned that my kidney’s produce more than just urine. Everyday these two bean-shaped organs called kidneys, in the middle of your back just below your ribcage, sift through about 2 quarts of blood, removing wastes products and excess fluid. But that’s not all! These two little power-houses also…
- stimulate red blood cell production
- regulate blood pressure
- balance the bodies fluids
- balance chemicals in your body
- releases hormones
- produces vitamin D helping promote strong healthy bones
- controls calcium levels
Wow impressive huh? So whether you are fasting or not, be kind to your “kids” and blend them up a drink they will enjoy!
PS. Speaking of understanding how our bodies heal when given the chance… relationships also heal, when given a chance. Click here “Understanding “Misunderstanding” an excellent article by my husband Bob!
