Internal heat naturally supports digestion, increases blood flow and helps the body get rid of toxins. Three very important elements in producing the highest quality of breastmilk.
So here are 5 ways I increase my body heat.
The sun has so many healing benefits. Heat is one of them.
For an intense dry heat, filled with vitamins, minerals, and dietary fibers I use 1-2 habanero peppers in my meals. Be careful not to wipe your eyes, they will burn worse than your tongue and butt hole.
Cook With Fire
I limit my microwave use and heavily rely on fire to cook everything. Coupled with a cast iron pan, the fire’s energy absorbs into the food, making it taste better and retain more nutrients.
Sleep With A Maternity Pillow
I’m a cuddler. And being wrapped in a super soft and fluffy c-shaped body pillow keeps me warm and comfortable.
A cup of hot tea in the morning almost always makes me sweat. My current favorites are sorrel, lemon, peppermint and nettles.
During this time, I also wear natural fibers. As our body heats up, we want to let our skin breathe. Cotton is a breathable fabric that is cozy and comfortable for our lactating journey.
This post is inspired by our 8 year old who noticed fat solidifies when cold and liquefies when hot. If you are naturally a hot-bodied wombman, these tips may cause heat stress or exhaustion. My extremities (hands and feet) tend to be cold, so I sought natural ways to increase my internal temperature.
Until next time,
