Do you struggle with having a relaxed morning routine? In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it is important to start your day on the right foot. A few lifestyle changes can make a world of difference.
Drinking a cold infusion of coriander seeds with a dash of rock sugar in an empty stomach might relieve you if you have acidity, hot flushes, burning sensations in your body etc, says Dr Dixa Bhavsar on Instagram.
Coriander seeds are rich sources of fibre that help boost metabolism. They have been a traditional fix for bloating for the longest time in Ayurvedic medication.
Dr Bhavsar says coriander seeds “even relieve excessive thirst and makes you feel satiated. It also cleanses and detoxes all the bodily channels”.
