First of all, the first thing I change with all YPSI clients is that they start their day with a ¼ tsp colored salt and a shot of lime juice in a glass of water. This is the most simple change with the greatest overall effect. Every single YPSI Client does it - no exception.
Salt has many vital functions, one of them is that it nourishes the adrenals. The adrenals are 2 walnut-shaped glands that sit on top of the kidneys. They are responsible for the majority of hormones involved in energy level and stress management, such as adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol.
Cortisol isn't the major stress hormone. At the same time cortisol is very important for your energy level. You need cortisol to work, train and survive. Low cortisol levels is NOT the goal. Optimal cortisol levels is what you need. That means high cortisol in the morning, according to our biorhythm, cortisol should be the highest between 6-8 am decreasing gradually throughout the day. With the lowest point at about 10pm, the time we should go to bed and fall asleep.
You want to know if you fit the optimal cortisol curve? Here is an easy question: Do you wake up by yourself between 6-8 am every day? If not, you most likely suffer low morning cortisol.
You want to have more energy in the morning and wake up by yourself full of energy…. Reset your biorhythm.
There are a few steps and tricks to do this. The most efficient one is:
Start your day with a ¼ tsp. colored salt, and a shot of lime juice in a glass of water. This is the most simple change with the greatest overall effect. Every single YPSI client does it - no exception.
Any colored salt works. White is not a colour. In the US I prefer Celtic Sea Salt which is grey. In Germany my choice is Himalayan Salt, as it is easily available. Choose the one that is available to you.
The lime juice has a great effect on pH level. Despite the acidic taste, it has an alkaline effect metabolically. At night our pH drops, which is necessary, especially to optimize hepatic biostransformation. In the morning the Ph has to get more alkaline again, mainly to optimize energy production in the cells. So an optimal pH level, especially in the morning, leads to more energy and better phase 1-2 biotransformation. Who doesn't need that?
The salt also has a great effect on intestinal health as it has anti-microbial and anti-parasitic properties.
Try it, this is the recipe:
¼ tsp. Colored Salt – any colored salt works
A shot of Lime Juice - fresh or from a glass bottle
A glass of water – ideally reverse osmosis filtered
Mix everything and drink it right after waking up. How much water should you take with it? As much as you need, 200ml being the minimum. Just put the juice of 1 freshly squeezed lemon or lime in a glass, which is about 1 tbsp of Limejuice, add ¼ teaspoon of colored salt in it, and then add water to taste
You want to reset your biorhythm, increase your energy and decrease bellyfat – start your day with a ¼ tsp.colored salt, and a shot of lime juice in a glass of water. This is the most simple change with the greatest overall effect.
All the best to start your day with Salt & Lime Water!
