Q: Are there any benefits to drinking lemon and warm water? One of my friends drinks it instead of coffee in the morning and swears by it. But she can’t tell me why it’s good. ………………………. Jean, Douglas
A: The short answer is yes, there are a lot of benefits to drinking lemon water. The answer that most people who drink it daily tell me is that they do it for cleansing the liver. It apparently helps liquefy the bile and control excess bile production.
In his book Biological Inonization, author Beddoe writes that the liver can make more enzymes out of fresh lemons than from any other food. It can also help relieve symptoms of indigestion, heartburn, belching and bloating.
In his book Back To Eden, Jethro Kloss explains: It helps prevent growth of pathogenic bacteria and decomposition of tissue, it assists in “cleansing the system of impurities,” helps to dissolve uric acid, the cause of many joint issues…..
Drinking lemon water has an alkalizing effect on the body and according to Kloss and Beddoe helps purify the blood, assists in lowering blood pressure, relieves symptoms of astma and allergies, helps prevents gallstones and kidney stones and provides potassium to brain and nerve cells.
Here’s the technique if you are interested in trying it out. Use clean, purified non-chlorinated water. Then, using a lemon/lime squeezer, squeeze one half lemon or lime into the warm water, without sweetener. Drink it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, long before ingesting anything else.
“The warm lemon/lime water daily habit is as cheap and easy as it gets to help you improve and maintain your health. Bottoms up!”
