Secret Detox Drink


I first heard of this detox drink from a Chinese doctor.  I was SO sick in the beginning of my pregnancy and desperate to feel better.  My friend suggested doing acupuncture.  I was ready to try anything.  

Can I tell you that acupuncture was a complete game changer, more on that later.  

I had told the doctor that my energy was low, I had terrible nausea, and my digestion was not doing good!  She told me to drink apple cider vinegar, mixed with hot water, and a little honey every morning. She had done that faithfully for years and said it was the secret to her keeping everything regular, and her youthful skin (her skin was SO pretty!).  Our gut is our second brain, and that the state of our digestion shows in our skin and our overall health. 

I started doing that every morning, and added a few more metabolism boosting spices and lemon juice.  I was inspired by this version from Dr. Axe.

The ingredients to the secret detox drink:

  • Cayenne which speeds up your metabolism
  • Lemon juice creates a more alkaline environment in your body which is crucial for not getting sick.
  • Cinnamon that is super effective in balancing out your blood sugar levels and it is full of antioxidants.
  • Apple cider vinegar balances blood sugar levels, can help with weight loss, lower your blood pressure, and can help with acid reflux (there is nothing it can’t do!)  Make sure you use good quality apple cider vinegar with the “mother” in it.
  • Ginger or ginger tea ginger is amazing for calming nausea, relieving sore muscles, and it is amazing for digestion. 

I make this first thing when I wake up, or after I get back from working out.  But it is the first thing I have in the morning on most days, then breakfast 20 minutes later.  Drinking this drink first thing in the morning has made a big difference in my digestion and curbing sugar cravings!  You can also drink it for maximum benenfits 20 minutes before you eat any meal throughout the day.

    Could you use ginger powder from the spice aisle?

    • Desi says:

      Hi Sherry! I haven’t ever tried using ground ginger. You could try it. I assume you would need a lot less than fresh ginger.

    Thank you for this!

    Do you let all the sediments fall to the bottom or do you try to keep it mixed and drink and the chunky stuff?

  4. Denise says:

    I can’t handle the taste of ginger. But I will try this

    • Desi says:

      Denise! You can leave out the ginger if it is too much for you. You will still get ALL the benefits from apple cider vinegar and the lemon juice.

  5. Trista says:

    In all seriousness, this helped with your nausea? Because it made me nauseous. I had to keep it in. Does good quality apple cider vinegar taste better? I need to know!

    • Desi says:

      Hi Trista! The acupuncture was the game changer for my nausea. The detox drink helped me with my digestion and not getting back up :). Hope that helps. You definitely need to try acupuncture if you are nauseous, it made a HUGE difference for me. Look up the reviews of the people in your area, and choose someone that has good reviews.
