Lemons Are Alkalizing To The Blood and Tissues

13 Healing Powers of Lemons

Here are 13 amazing healing powers of lemons:

  1. Bowel-Cleansing: The bitter taste of lemon gives these fruit the ability to increase peristalsis–a pumping-motion in the bowels–which helps to eliminate waste from the bowels and improve regularity. Add the juice of one lemon to warm alkaline 9.5pH water and drink first thing in the morning. You can also add mineral salts to increase the efficacy of bowel cleansing. Add 1 to 3 teaspoons in a glass of alkaline lemon water.

  2. Cancer: Lemons contain 22 anti-cancerous or anti-acid compounds, including limonene—a naturally-occurring oil that slows, halts and buffers the acids that breakdown healthy tissue causing the formation of cancerous tumors in animals. Lemons also contain a substance called flavonol glycosides which stop the acids that spoil healthy cells causing a domino effect which creates more cancerous cells.

  3. Colds and Flu: Lemons are rich in vitamin C and flavonoids that work in conjunction for a serious punch against the dietary and metabolic acids that cause the body to eliminate these toxins through the bowels, the pores of the skin, urinary tract and sinuses by inducing a fever or creating a so-called cold.

  4. Liver: Fresh lemon juice added to a large glass of water in the morning is a great liver detoxifier. You can also drink 1 liter of salt water at 6pm adding 3 tablespoons of epsom salts and then at 9pm drink 1 liter of 500ml of lemon fresh juice with 500ml of cold pressed olive oil. You then go to be and sleep on you right side.

  5. Nutrition: Lemons contain vitamin C, flavonoids, B-complex vitamins, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and fiber which help to maintain the alkaline design of the body.

  6. Balances Body Chemistry: While lemons are acidic at a pH of 3.5 they contain an alkalizing compound of potassium bicarbonate which interacts with the body’s metabolic acids to have an alkalizing effect on the bodily fluids helping to contribute to a balanced alkaline body pH.

  • Allergies: Lemons contain the phytonutrient hesperetin which has been shown in studies to alleviate allergic symptoms by reducing the acidic toxins that cause allergic reactions.

  • Brain and Nervous System Disorders: Lemons contain the potent phytonutrient tangeretin in the peel, lemons have been proven to be effective for brain disorders like Parkinson’s disease by buffering the excess acids of sugar, acetylaldehyde, and alcohol that destroy brain cells.

  • Eye Disorders: Rutin, found in lemons, has been shown in research to improve the symptoms of eye disorders, including diabetic retinopathy by buffering the acids that destroy the delicate rods and cones of the eye.

  • Anti-Acid: In addition to being effective in reducing environmental, dietary, metabolic and respiratory acids that cause the symptoms of cold and flu, terpene limonoids found in lemons have proven anti-acid effects on other types of acidic conditions, such as acid reflux, indigestion, tissue irritation and inflammation, induration and ulceration.

  • Diabetes: In addition to improving eye problems linked with diabetes, lemons contain hesperetin which lowers the acids in the blood, especially the acid sugar levels of glucose.

  • Gall and Kidney Stones: The Vitamin C found in lemon juice helps to dissolve gallstones, calcium deposits, and kidney stones.

  • Anti-Aging: The potassium bicarbonate found in lemons helps to neutralize environmental, dietary, metabolic and respiratory acids linked to aging and most types of dis-ease.

  • Some suggested uses of lemon in your daily diet:

  • 1) Eliminate the highly toxic acid vinegar and replace it with the alkalizing fruit lemon or lime.
  • 2) Add lemon with ginger to settle the acids of your stomach and restore the natural alkaline state of the stomach.
  • 3) Add lemon to your alkaline water to neutralize the highly toxic hydrochloric acid in the stomach produced when the stomach is creating the alkaline buffer sodium bicarbonate to alkalize your food or drink ingested.
  • 4) Instead of using olive oil and vinegar on your salad substitute the vinegar and add olive oil and lemon juice on your salad. Now you have an alkalizing salad without the poisonous acidic vinegar.
  • 5) Add lemon juice with your phour salts in a glass of alkaline water to alkalize the blood and tissues.

    Who is going to drink 500 cc of lemon juice plus 500 cc of olive oil? This has to be a typo.

    Not a typo.
    Look up "Liver flush" on google; on YouTube, on CureZone, or anywhere - or see Andreas Moritz's books on Amazon.
