(NaturalHealth365) You’re about to learn how to dramatically improve your health without spending a small fortune. That’s right – in just 3 minutes – you can literally boost digestive function; improve oxygen uptake within the body; build alkalinity and increase your brain function. After reading this article – you’ll never look at lemons that same way again.

One of the sweetest ways to strengthen your body

Lemons, more than any other fruit, are charged with a purer concentration of negatively charged ions. Not to get too scientific, negative ions in the air gives us that wonderful feeling – when we are near waterfalls, on the beach or in the mountains.

Pierce J. Howard PhD, author of The Owners Manual for the Brain; Everyday Applications from Mind Brain Research and Director for Applied Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte, North Carolina says, “Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy, They also may protect against germs in the air.”

A better way to treat indigestion without harmful drugs

Due to the digestive qualities of pure (organic) lemon juice, symptoms of indigestion such as heartburn, bloating and belching can be virtually wiped out. By drinking lemon juice regularly, the bowels are aided in eliminating waste more efficiently – thus controlling constipation and diarrhea. Simply put, if you have digestive issues – you need to add lemon juice to your daily routine.

And, of course, it (almost) goes without saying that one should stop eating heavily processed foods that disturb the digestive tract and make it difficult to enjoy life.

A great (simple) way to help remove toxins from the body

In the book Back to Eden, the author Mr. Kloss points out that, “The lemon is a wonderful stimulant to the liver and is a dissolvent of uric acid and other poisons, liquefies the bile, and is very good in cases of malaria. Sufferers of chronic rheumatism and gout will benefit by taking lemon juice”. Keep in mind, if your liver is NOT functioning well – your risk of physical and emotional illness is much higher.

Lemon juice can help people with a wide variety of health conditions, such as, asthma, colds, coughs, sore throat, diphtheria, influenza, heartburn, liver problems, scurvy, fevers and rheumatism. In addition, the high content of potassium in lemons can help nourish nerve cells and brain function.

My suggestion would be to drink lemon juice water – every day (for 3-4 weeks) and see how it makes you feel. Obviously, personal experience is our greatest teacher.

An easy way to increase oxygen levels within the body

Cancer patients will be happy to learn that fresh lemon juice will help adjust oxygen and calcium levels by regulating the carbohydrate levels which affect blood oxygen levels. And, since we all have circulating cancer cells in our body – adding a little lemon juice to pure, spring water is a good thing. If I were you – I would get started – right away.

If you have trouble finding (pure) spring water – then you may want to consider using water that has been distilled or put through a reverse osmosis device. In addition, adding Quintessential marine plasma will help to re-mineralize the water.

Simple home remedies that only costs pennies

For a sore throat, dilute one-half lemon juice with water and gargle often throughout the day. A slice of lemon bound over a pus formation – on a joint – will bring everything to the surface and be removed. And, for asthma patients, a tablespoon of lemon juice – one hour before eating will greatly assist in digestion and help to reduce your symptoms. It’s always a good idea to try lemon juice and water (first thing) when you wake up in the morning – on an empty stomach.

Choosing the “right” lemon – how to make a smart buying decision

There is a way to know the mineral content of a lemon before you buy it. By picking one that has a high specific gravity measurement, in plain terms one that is heavy for its size. All the lemons may be equal-sized but the one with the greatest weight will have the most minerals and be the sweetest. A thick skinned lemon will not be as heavy as a thin skinned lemon and not have the desired sweetness due to less sugar content.

To help your body get the energy from the food you are eating, drinking lemon water is a wonderful idea. If you’re new at all this – simply start with a teaspoon or two (mixed in water) and increase the dosage (as desired) on a weekly basis. Remember, a little lemon in your life can be a sweet solution for better health. Post your comments or experience – below.
