Thrifty way to detox...with JEERA Water

There are many detox's on the market. I've tried most of them, like many other people. is one of my favorite.

I recently came across a detox /digestion aid (resource: Yoga Journal, Nov. 2009 issue) you can make easily in the kitchen yourself that helps flush the toxins from the body and is very economical.


Set a stainless steel pot on a burner and turn on the heat. Scatter 1/2 teaspooon whole CUMIN seeds into the dry pot. They will release their woody, fiery smell. When their color darkens slightly (about 10 seconds) . Add 1 quart of water adn bring to a boil; boil 3 minuts. Strain and serve warm or at room temperature.

JEERA in Hindi, stimulates the digestion and cumin naturally flushes toxins from the body.

You can drink herbal infusions just as you would regular water: Carry a bottle with you and sip all day.
