Lemon  -  A True Miracle Fruit?

Lemons have been known for their healing properties for a long time. Have this no days common fruit any health benefits?

In the olden days lemon protected for instance against scurvy, a disease that arose by vitamin C deficiency that caused fatigue, impaired intellectual ability, nose bleeding, swelling of the mouth, ulcers, sore muscles and joints etc. Nowadays, most receive enough vitamin C from the daily diet, but it may be wise to look at increasing the intake if you are a smoker or during the yearly breakouts of colds and flus.

Lemon contains vitamin C in the form of citric acid and a little ascorbic acid. It also contains small amounts of minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, sodium and iron. There are also bioflavonoids such as hesperidin, that research shows has antioxidant effects. These protect against free radicals that can cause premature aging and cancer.

Lemons have antiseptic properties which kill bacteria, viruses and fungi.

It is also known for its capabilities in turning us alkaline. Most microorganisms cannot survive in an alkaline environment, but they require an acidic environment to survive and reproduce in.

New research also reveals that cancer may be caused by bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms. It is claimed that lemons are 10,000 times stronger in the ability to kill cancer cells compared to chemotherapy. This has not been confirmed by research as of yet, but we know that many cancer specialists have started to recommend their patients to drink lemon water daily. The healthy cells will not die of the alkaline environment that a lemon cure will generate.

There are many stories about how people have been cured of severe diseases in that they started to eat a diet that was more alkaline that contains lots of green vegetables, fruits and fibers. The lemons acid converts to the base of the body. This environment makes it possible for the cells to function more effectively. Oxygen is also light up. Disease pathogens such as cancer cells cannot proliferate and survive in a more alkaline, nor in an oxygen rich environment.

The stomach needs to be slightly alkaline for digestion to work, in order so that we will not have nutrient deficiencies, which in turn can impair immune function and disease.

. The ideal pH level of the blood and saliva is 7.4, that’s when the body works at its best and can detoxify efficiently. You can check this easily at home by getting pH strips and then test your saliva or urine, pH strips that can be purchased at health food or drug stores.Our cells cannot function if the blood pH level is too low or too high, below pH 6.8 or above pH 7.8, one cannot survive.

Lemon cleanses the liver and kidneys from harmful substances and calcium deposits in the body. Kidney and gall stones can be cleaned out using a proper lemon cure. In addition, you need to put some olive oil in the drink for it to work.

The lemons beneficial effect is said to aid in the purification of obesity and gastrointestinal tract. One also tends to become more alert which makes it easier to begin exercising.

You should always dilute the lemon with water, it is strong and can irritate the mucous membranes otherwise.

Lemons are good against ailments, combined with honey when suffering from a cough, sore throat, asthma, rhinitis, allergies and other respiratory problems.

The fresh juice from lemons helps to rid headaches, chronic fatigue, insomnia, pain in muscles and joints, arthritis, migraine, constipation, digestive problems and even a hangover. Regular intake of fresh lemon juice can prevent many diseases and slow down the aging process.

Lemon smells very good and has a healing and refreshing effect emotionally and spiritually. It is also used in the beauty industry.

The lemon has been used for thousands of years for its healing properties and is said in old folklore to possess miraculous powers to cure diseases.

Fresh concentrated lemon juice was said to cure both alcoholism and smoking, if you took a few tablespoons of fresh lemon juice the craving for those drugs lessened. It was used successfully against both chronic and acute diseases and pain. Lemon was known as a true lifesaver.

One thing is certain and that is that there are many people whom over the millennia have disclosed that they have been set free from various ailments taking a lemon cure. It is worth trying, it does not cost much and it both tastes smell good. It can prove to be a real miracle fruit.

Make sure you buy organic lemons.

For an amazing fat burning drink I juice 1 organic lemon and dilute it with warm water. The fat burning effect is truly astonishing. This is the first thing that I drink in the morning on an empty stomach and the last thing I drink at night. It is important that you use organic lemons when using the peel.

For truly beautiful clean skin I drink cucumber and lemon infused water during the day. Again it is important that the produce is organic. Slice one lemon and one cucumber and put in a pitcher then add 2 liters of water and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. When you’ve drunk a few glasses you can top it up for a few days. If you are prone to zits this clears them in no time. This is also extremely hydrating.

I read an article on mercola's website about using lemons and sunlight to disinfect water. It is amazing how much this little lemon can do. I think that limes are similar in effect.
