This is a detox that I have developed from research on the health benefits of these foods. It is not a fasting diet and nor is it designed to meal replace. Both cayenne and apple cider may have an appetite suppressing action.
To make take 1 teaspoon each of cayenne pepper, turmeric honey and raw apple cider (ACV) and combine in 1L of water. You can go up to as much as 1 tablespoon of each. AIm to drink 2L of this a day.
Ensure that you rinse your mouth with fresh water after drinking the cleanse as ACV is a mild acidic and can damage tooth enamel over a prolonged period of time.
This cleanse is not designed for pregnant or young people. As always please consult your health practitioner before commencing any health regime.
Whilst there is not a problem having these foods daily I would suggest a 10 - 30 day cleanse. Assess if you feel that you would like to continue with these foods in your daily regime.
Raw Apple cider vinegar
ACV is an age old remedy. It helps with liver cleansing, weight loss, reducing inflammation and is a metabolism booster. The raw ACV that I sell is unheated, unfiltered, contains the mother culture and is an open ferment. Your ACV has to be of this grade to get the health benefits
Turmeric is a powerful spice. It is anti-inflamatory, anti-fungal and a powerful liver detoxifier. (to name a few of its benefits!) By taking organic sun-dried turmeric root and medicinally grinding and incorporating it in the honey, we are able to lock in the essential oils of the turmeric that would normally rapidly oxidise off after grinding. It is the essential oil of the turmeric that is the active ingredient that is trapped in the honey in this process.
Cayenne Pepper - Information below taken from Health Watch
That burning sensation in your mouth when you eat foods spiced with chilli or cayenne pepper comes from capsaicin, the oily compound behind most of the health benefits of cayenne and its peppery cousins. Capsaicin is the active ingredient in many prescription and over-the-counter creams, ointments and patches for arthritis and muscle pain. Over time, it short-circuits pain by depleting nerve cells of a chemical called ‘substance P’, which helps transfer pain signals along nerve endings to the brain. It’s also used for treating shingles pain and diabetes-related nerve pain. Cayenne pepper’s benefi ts don’t end there, however. Sprinkle some onto your chicken soup to turbocharge that tried-and-true traditional cold remedy, since cayenne shrinks blood vessels in your nose and throat, relieving congestion. It’s also thought to be a metabolism booster, speeding up your kilojoule-burning capacity for up to a couple of hours after eating. Cayenne is also thought to act as an anti-infl ammatory and an antioxidant. Some studies have found that it also has some anticancer properties, and researchers are exploring its potential as a cancer treatment. Finally, in at least one study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers found that people with diabetes who ate a meal containing plenty of chilli required less postmeal insulin to reduce their blood sugar, suggesting the spice may have benefits in blood glucose control.
