It’s the small and seemingly unnoticed rituals that lead to habit and it’s the consistent practice of habits that can make all the difference to your overall state of wellbeing.

The following ‘Start up Tonic’ is one of 8 wellness boosting habits that will slowly shift you towards your natural state of wellbeing.


Upon waking, drink a 250mL glass of filtered water with Lemon, juiced or one tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar. Room temperate or slightly warm is best.

You can heat it with a 1/4 teaspoon of Organic Honey as a morning cuppa, or use your favourite herbal tea blend with the Lemon or Vinegar. Sip slowly, over 20 minutes.

This morning drink stimulates the stomach, cleanses the mouth and reminds the stomach hormones (known as Gastrin) to prepare for the ‘Break of the Fast’!

You’ll break down your proteins, absorb your nutrients and reduce the load of gas producing substance. This helps with weight, fluid and skin health.

DO NOT USE Lemon juice or Apple Cider Vinegar:

● If you take a regular prescription medication called a PPI (proton pump inhibitor) such as Nexium, Losec or Omeprazole.

● If you have severe heartburn or reflux.

● If you have been diagnosed with a gastric or duodenal ulcer.

● If you have oesophageal dysplasia.

Instead, start with 250mL of warm water and one teaspoon of Slippery Elm Powder. When your condition has improved, you may begin this process of stimulating the stomach’s natural acid-producing ability with lemon or ACV.
