This Spicy Morning Tonic Will Improve Your Digestion


You’ve heard of chicken and waffles? It’s a brunch staple, but I prefer to eat mines at 11pm at a bar off of Fairfax. Reckless is an understatement. So when I wake up in the morning, this tonic is my aplology to my stomach. 

Boosting your internal digestive fire is one of the key ways to improve your health according to Ayurveda. Your digestive system allows your body to remove waste and absorbs nutrients properly. These are the key ways to prevent toxemia, or the root cause of all  disease. More on that in my last post.

Unfortunately due to eating heavy starches, protein and not enough water and veggies the colon becomes prolapsed. The colon lies directly above the uterus and ovaries and when it becomes impacted and weighted down to with waste, it can make your monthly cycle pretty difficult. 


  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne  
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 8 oz. Pure Warm Water
  • 2-4 teaspoons of cold pressed olive oil
  • Mix all of the ingredients together and enjoy!

The cayenne in this tonic will heat up your digestive system, while the extra virgin olive oil removes toxins in your colon. The health and well-being of our colon is crucial to maintaining wellness. Try this tonic out in addition to my 4 herbs for healing your period and you’re guaranteed to feel brand new!


  • Cayenne is a great detoxifying agent because it stimulates circulation and reduces acidity.
  • Lemon helps you lose weight and is packed with Vitamin C.
  • The cold pressed olive oil is essential for colon wellness because it activates digestion so we can get rid of everything we don’t need. 

 I drink mines immediately but if you seal it in an air tight mason jar you can drink it later.  



I’m also loving the Smarty Pants All in One Probiotic. It’s almost like a treat after finishing the tonic. This is what I have in the morning before breakfast after one of my nights of indiscriminate eating. Would you try out this tonic?
