Lemon mornings: DETOX, DIGESTION and HEALTHY DIET!

Start the morning with LEMON in warm water!

My holistic tip: Love your pearly whites and please dilute! Acid is not enamel friendly!

Lemon is tart and acidic BUT alkaline forming on the inside! Balancing the body means keeping PH levels in the normal range! Choosing a plant based diet helps fight inflammation in the body. Not sure whether you are alkaline or acidic? Easily test your saliva or urine with PH papers by Genuine Health.

Lemon helps stimulate bile and flush the liver. Lemons also help stimulate digestion. Speeding up the movement of wastes means eliminating toxins! Kick it up and squeeze lemon into dandelion tea!

Lemons contain anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. They also help decrease Inflammation.

Lemons are a holistic way to flavor water ALL day long!

Lemons contain:

  • B vitamins
  • Calcium
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Phosphorus
  • Fiber
  • Potassium
  • Folate
  • Bioflavanoid called Rutin helps improve eyesight and produce collagen.
  • Vitamin C

Vitamin C deserves extra mention. It’s a water soluble vitamin and lost in urine. Consuming extra is beneficial. In times of stress, it’s quickly depleted. Vitamin C also proves helpful with asthma. Vitamin C is part of a healthy lifestyle. Vitamin C in lemons works throughout the body!

  • Anti-oxidant
  • Anti-cancer
  • Boosts immune system helping fight colds and flus
  • Helps strengthen damaged blood vessels and build artery walls.
  • Diminish varicose veins

If your weakest genetic link is Atherosclerosis, lemon water should be your new BFF!

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Neutralizes free radicals
  • Support adrenal system
  • Help produce thyroid hormone
  • Help lower blood pressure

Go raw! Lemon juice, pulp and rind are dynamic in culinary dishes BUT Vitamin C is one of the least stable vitamins. It’s nutritional benefits are easily destroyed by cooking!

Thrive on live lemons! One cup of lemon juice contains 187% of Daily Value of Vitamin C! Explains why the Master Cleanse Diet has been a detox for decades! Please find me before taking the plunge! Be careful before beginning. If the pathways of elimination aren’t ready and open, toxins overwhelm the body. You may be knocked right on your ass, feeling worse than ever!
