Detox with LEMONS

           We all know that lemons are a citrus fruit, loaded with vitamin C and flavonoids, which have antioxidant and cancer fighting qualities.  But did you also know that lemons will aid with weight loss, digestion and will freshen your breath.  Lemons will not only strengthen your immune system, they treat high blood pressure, respiratory issues, throat infections, dental problems and constipation.                                                                   Lemon may be acidic to taste but are alkaline forming in the body.  They are one of the most alkaline-forming foods, which is crucial to preventing and fighting cancer.    Remember, Dr. Otto Warberg, in 1931, won the Nobel Prize, for discovering cancer cells cannot survive in an alkaline environment, “discovered that the root cause of cancer is too much acidity in the body, meaning that the pH, potential hydrogen, in the body is below the normal level of 7.365, which constitutes an "acidic" state. Warburg investigated the metabolism of tumours and the respiration of cells and discovered that cancer cells maintain and thrive in a lower pH, as low as 6.0, due to lactic acid production and elevated CO2. He firmly believed that there was a direct relationship between pH and oxygen. Higher pH, which is Alkaline, means higher concentration of oxygen molecules, while lower pH, which is acidic, means lower concentrations of oxygen...the same oxygen that is needed to maintain healthy cells.” (1)  On top of that, lemons contain 22 anti-cancer compounds, including limonene, which halts the growth of cancer cells.  According to The Reams Biological Ionization Theory (RBTI), the lemon is the ONLY food in the world that is anionic (an ion with a negative charge). All other foods are cationic (the ion has a positive charge.) This makes it extremely useful to health as it is the interaction between anions and cations that ultimately provides all cell energy.(2)

            Your organ of healing and rejuvenation -your liver, LOVES lemon!  “The lemon is a wonderful stimulant to the liver and is a dissolvent of uric acid and other poisons, liquefies the bile,” says Jethro Kloss in his book Back to Eden. Fresh lemon juice added to a large glass of water in the morning is a great liver detoxifier.  Lemons also cleanse your bowels, and the citric acid in lemons dissolves gallstones, calcium deposits and kidney stones.  They also destroy intestinal worms.

            Lemons are powerful antibacterial agents, destroying malaria, cholera, diphtheria, typhoid and other diseases. Blood vessels are strengthened by the vitamin P in lemons.  Symptoms of eye disorders, including diabetic retinopathy, have improved due to the rutin in lemons.   

            So, no excuses!!  This could not be easier to add to your diet.  Get your copper water bottle and squeeze a few lemon wedges in there!  Most of us travel with a water bottle so make this simple adjustment today!
