If you have been going to a therapist’s clinic for some time now to treat an eating disorder, it is highly possible that you are starting to get sick of the routine.
We live in a culture that convinces us certain foods are good or bad and that we are good or bad based on what we eat. It’s no wonder so many of us feel crazy around food! — Alexis Conason Psy.D.
Counselors are extremely helpful and knowledgeable people – there is no doubt about that. However, getting reminded every single time that your health is still not in tiptop shape can be exhausting. If we are honest, the level of stress coming from that usually leads some patients to revert to their bad eating habits.
Despite that, we should also remember that good health is not solely for those who can afford insurance or stay at the gym for a few hours a day. People from all walks of life can attain it since you need no medicine, vitamins or supplements to make it happen. And, yes, even the individuals who used to or still have a love-hate relationship with food can eat healthily as well on their own. You only need two essential ingredients: honey and cinnamon.
Benefits Of Using Honey And Cinnamon
The primary advantage of making something out of honey and cinnamon is that these ingredients are natural sources of vitamins, minerals, and other compounds that promote good health.
Raw honey, to be specific, is capable of keeping allergies at bay, preventing malignant and cardiovascular diseases, and suppressing cough. Some people believe that eating one spoonful of it every day, especially when you are feeling well, can cause your illness to go away. Aside from that, it is known for being able to enhance memory and boost a person’s overall immune system.
Meanwhile, cinnamon is a spice that you might have been using to create rolls or pies during special occasions at home. The reality, however, is that it does not only make your dish aromatic. It can also help you regulate your blood flow and lessen gastrointestinal disorders (if you have any). Furthermore, consuming cinnamon is supposed to lighten your skin and aid you in your weight-loss journey.
Poor quality nutrition also contributes to the buildup of toxins in the body as a natural by-product of daily life which suggests everyone can benefit from engaging in detoxification strategies. — Leslie E. Korn Ph.D., MPH, LMHC, ACS, NTP
What Is The Best Way To Utilize Honey And Cinnamon?
Honey tastes sweet and smells quite pleasant; that’s why eating it directly from the container may not bother you. The ingredient that may be difficult to eat raw, though, is the cinnamon. Although practically every food with this condiment is heavenly, the spice, when consumed as is, maybe too bitter or spicy for anyone. Thus, the best way to utilize both ingredients is by making a beverage out of them.
Sipping on this concoction day and night may give you a leaner and slimmer waist, among other things. As mentioned above, the two can help you digest food faster in a reasonable way. You won’t then need to worry about gaining or losing weight.
Here is a simple recipe for this drink:
- Boil two cups of water in a kettle.
- Transfer half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder in a large mug while waiting.
- Pour the boiled water in the cup with cinnamon in it. Stir them together, and then allow the mixture to rest for 30 minutes.
- After that, infuse a teaspoon of honey and get ready to drink it.
This recipe is enough to provide you with two servings of a healthy beverage. The best time to have it is when you wake up or before you sign off for the night.
You can include other ingredients with honey and cinnamon, mind you. In doing so, you can also gain more health rewards.
