Detoxes and fasts are all the rage in health and beauty circles right now but they’re often astronomically expensive. Some programs charge $10 or more for a juice or bag of tea and that’s on the lower priced end. Many of these detoxes are ineffective scams and some can potentially do more harm than good.

If you truly want to cleanse and purify your body from the inside out you should do the following; chug a glass of water as soon as you wake up in the morning. This is something that just about everyone can manage and afford to do and it works.

Water in the morning can be compared to a detox because it helps cleanse the digestive tract, intestines, and colon. A cleaner system gives our bodies a better ability to absorb much needed nutrients from the foods we eat.

Naturally getting more vitamins and nutrients makes us healthier, stronger, and better prepared to fight off sickness and diseases. To fully harness all of the health benefits from water it’s best to drink a full 8 ounce glass of fluoride-free water on an empty stomach as soon as you wake up in the morning.

Allow the water to digest and do not eat or drink anything else for at least 45 minutes afterwards. Doing this helps to activate all of our internal organs and you start the day feeling refreshed.

The origins of this practice originate in Eastern Asia where both the Chinese and Japanese have followed it for years. In Japan, where it’s known as Japanese water therapy, it’s believed to provide several other positive changes to our bodies over time.

According to the Japanese Medical Society consuming water every morning can treat certain gastric issues, such as constipation, in 10 days and help lower high blood pressure in 30 days. There’s more information in the accompanying video on all of this and in addition to a morning glass of H2O there are several other ideal times you should aim to drink it to maximize it’s effectiveness, they are listed below:

1) Before each meal. Drinking 1-2 glasses of water about 30 minutes prior to eating a meal aids digestion by helping to prepare your stomach for the food that will soon follow. It also makes you feel fuller faster which can help you eat less and lose weight.

2) Before and after a workout. Drinking a glass at these times can help prevent dehydration caused by water loss due to perspiration.

3) Whenever you are tired. If you feel sluggish or exhausted chug a glass of water, it’ll wake up your body and help keep you alert.

Of course, you can always drink a glass of water anytime you’d like to! The points covered above are the best times to drink water when your body really needs it, so pass this along to loved ones and let them know how they can best clean their systems out.

Will you start drinking water on an empty stomach in the morning?

THIS Giant Hole Showed Up Out Of No Where! But Scientists Have Finally REVEALED The Strange Reason Why!

image via – youtube.com

California’s Napa County is well known for its wine industry and beautiful scenery. Between its lush green rolling hills and wildflower covered valleys, it easily ranks among one of the most naturally picturesque places in America. There is so much to see and explore throughout the area and when the timing is right, one of the main attractions can be found at Lake Berryessa.

The seventh largest man-made lake in California is held back by the 304 foot tall Monticello Dam and is home to the famous “Glory Hole” spillway. Sitting just yards away from the concrete lip of the dam, the spillway is funnel shaped just like how a morning glory flower is, hence the name.

At the opening and widest point, it measures 72 feet across before narrowing down to approximately 28 feet as it drops straight down two-hundred vertical feet! Once it reaches the bottom it bends ninety degrees and then straightens out before eventually draining out on the other side of the dam into Putah Creek.

The last time the spillway was in action was well over a decade ago and with the ongoing drought conditions that California has been experiencing it was expected to be awhile before it ever saw any use again. All of that changed recently when January and February brought record amounts of rain to the region and raised the lake’s water capacity to near maximum levels!

The sudden influx of so much water in such a short span of time meant that the glory hole was finally back in action and on February 16, 2017 the edge of it was officially runneth over! You have to check out this awesome drone footage to see what it looks like when thousands of cubic feet of water per second rush down the hole!

It’s unbelievably mesmerizing and hypnotic and the power of the spillway is truly a wonder to behold. At one point in the footage the drone operator let it get a little too close to the hole and it almost ended up being sucked down into the dark depths. Check it out because this is something you don’t get to see all that often and it’s super neat.

Have You Ever Noticed THIS On The Bottom Of Your Water Bottle? THIS Is What It Means!

When it comes to quenching thirst, nothing works better than plain old water. Most of us carry some with us and toss a bottle of water into our bags or car and at work and home we drink from water coolers all the time. All of these water containers, jugs, and bottles are not created equally and some are made from plastics that may be harmful to your health.

If you want what’s best for you and your family you need to know which kinds are the safest and healthiest. The best and clearest way to determine if the plastic bottle you’re about to buy or use is safe or not is to look for the number on the bottle.

All plastic bottles are labeled somewhere with a number between 1 and 7, usually it’s located on the bottom. The number is surrounded by three arrows and it’s there to indicate what type of plastic the bottle is made out of. It’s important to know these numbers because some are better than others.

In the accompanying Howcast video Allegra goes over which ones are safe versus the more toxic types. She has a great tip on how to remember and differentiate the good from the bad with the saying: “1-2-4-5 stay alive, 3-6-7 straight to heaven.” This generally means that plastic bottles and containers numbered 1, 2, 4, and 5 are better, safer, and less toxic than the ones labeled with a 3, 6, or 7.

The safest and all around best way to avoid any of the potential harmful effects caused by plastics is to not use any plastic in the first place. Instead, try to use ceramic or glass containers whenever possible, especially to hold or store food and beverage products in.

Of course, it’s very difficult to completely remove all types of plastics from your life when they’re so widely used in this day and age. When you do use plastics, make sure it’s the types labeled 1, 2, 4, or 5, as well as those that are labeled BPA free.

BPA is a dangerous synthetic compound that is highly carcinogenic and often used in many plastics. Because it’s so common lots of plastic water bottles and containers have BPA in them, so try to avoid those at all costs.

The next time you pick up a bottle of water or go to buy some at the store, make sure to check the number on it first. Please pass this information along so everyone knows to do the same. The more awareness we have, the better the choices we can make, and we can all stay as healthy as possible.

This Guy Always Pours H2O On His Propane Tank Before He Starts Cooking. The Reason Is Brilliant

Nothing tastes quite as delicious as food barbecued on the grill in the summertime, it just hits the spot. Everything from meat to corn on the cob and every other veggie under the sun takes on a whole new dimension of flavor when barbecued to perfection.

There’s also nothing worse than finding out that you’re low or close to running out of gas right when you’re about to start grilling! It happens, usually at the most inopportune times, especially if your propane tank doesn’t have a gauge on it. However, rather than abandon your BBQ plans you can try this neat little trick from America’s Test Kitchen to measure exactly how much propane is left in the tank. That way, you won’t ever run out of gas unexpectedly ever again.

First, boil up a pot of water and bring it outside to where your propane tank is located. Carefully pour the hot water all around the tank and down every side, making sure that the entire thing is covered. Next, feel around the tank with your hand and test areas to see if they are warm or cool. Warm spots indicate that the tank was heated up by the water because with no gas to cool it down, there’s no propane at that level. Cool spots indicate the opposite. Where the tank is cooler to the touch is the level the propane is at. That’s because the liquid in the tank is absorbing all the heat, leaving the surface cool to the touch.

So the next time you are unsure about how much propane is left in your grill’s tank simply unleash your inner MacGyver, boil up a pot of water, and drip it down and around the tank. Cold spots will reveal the level and you can go from there. Check out the video for more details and to get a better visual idea, and don’t forget to share and enjoy!

Apparently You Should Never Throw Out Rice Water. The Reason Is Priceless!

The next time you cook rice for dinner, make sure to save the leftover water it was boiled in. Rice water, that milky white liquid you’re left with, is brimming with all sorts of vitamins and minerals that your body craves.

Japanese women have used it for centuries in their health and beauty routines to make their hair shine and skin glow. It’s one of the easiest and all natural ways to effectively moisturize and protect hair and skin, plus it’s super affordable and you get a meal out of it!

To get the most out of rice water, you should aim to use organic rice and distilled water. First rinse the rice off and then simply boil it, drain the excess water into a container, and allow it to cool. Now you can use it right away or pop a lid on and store it in the refrigerator for later use.

Below are some of the most common ways that people use it in their health and beauty routines: Facial cleanser and toner- After washing your face, soak a cotton pad in rice water and gently apply it all over your face and neck area.

This helps to even out skin tone, as well as smooth and tighten it, and your skin will feel soft and moisturized. The antioxidants and B vitamins in it help slow aging and protect skin against the harmful effects of UV radiation by preventing age spots.

Hair treatment- After shampooing and rinsing your hair, drench it in rice water. Massage it gently into your hair and scalp and allow this to soak for about 5 minutes. Rinse well with plain water and do this once or twice a week for best results.

The proteins in the rice water strengthen and fill in cracks in hair shafts, leaving you with silky smooth, shiny hair. Full body soak- Add some rice water to your bath, or place a ½ cup of rice in a muslin bag and drop that in the tub.

Sit back, relax, and soak it all in for at least 15 minutes. Taking a rice water bath is an excellent way to alleviate painful or irritating skin conditions, like eczema and rashes. The moisturizing and healing properties of the rice water helps to reduce inflammation and restore moisture to skin.

There are other ways to harness the powerful benefits of rice water, the three above are the most simple and main ones. Check out the video for more easy and effective ways to work it into your beauty routine.

He Starts Throwing Buckets Of Food Into The Water. Seconds Later The Most Unexpected Surprise!

When you’re a fish and live in the ocean or a river you have to constantly be on the lookout for your next meal. Whether it happens to be another fish, or a nice tasty worm, you take whatever you can get because there is just no way of knowing when you’re going to eat next.

When a human starts to throw a bunch of food in the water, you better eat that up as well. After all, a fish can only be so lucky to come across a feast, like the one in this video. In the clip a young man stands among 23 orange buckets that are fulled to the brim with fish food pellets.

He is at the edge of a pier or wooden dock next to a large body of water and a few other people mill about. The guy says something to the camera and then starts to pick up a bucket of food and flings its contents into the water. Immediately, a lot of fish start to chow down on the tasty treats and the water begins to churn once several more buckets of pellets are tossed in.

As more and more fish start fighting for the food the water begins to appear as if it is boiling from all the splashing and fish bodies flying around. Bucket after bucket after bucket of food gets tossed to the fishes and a humongous, and inevitable, feeding frenzy is soon under way.

While it is not clear where exactly this took place, or for what reason, it’s definitely a pretty wild sight to see all those fish feeding at once. They certainly got lucky, and what a great day it must have been to be a fish in those waters!
