I was told that drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning was especially good for cleansing the liver. I love to put 3 or 4 drops of Doterra Lemon Essential Oil in a glass or stainless steel water bottle. I also love to drink it through out the day its great for weight loss as well. My kids really like it too I put 2-3 drops Doterra lemon Essential Oil in water in their stainless steel water bottles and they drink it through out the day.
Lemons are also a good source of citric acid, potassium, calcium, phosphorous and magnesium.
The following is a brief summary of a few of the key health benefits of drinking lemon water regularly. I got this information from http://www.waterbenefitshealth.com/benefits-of-drinking-lemon-water.html
- It helps prevent the growth of pathogenic bacteria and the decomposition of tissue
- It assists in “cleansing the system of impurities” and will help prevent disease
- It is effective at dissolving uric acid (often the cause of pain and inflammation in joints) and other poisons in the body
- It can help reduce symptoms of malaria, rheumatism, gout, rickets and tuberculosis.
Lemon is an excellent stimulant to the liver, Lemon water liquefies the bile and helps control excess bile flow. For liver complaints, drinking warm lemon juice one hour before breakfast.
The primary purpose of the lemon is to:
- Provide a natural strengthening agent to liver enzymes when they are too dilute
- Help fix oxygen and calcium levels in the liver, which ultimately affects blood oxygen levels.
One of the most important benefits of drinking lemon water regularly is its effect on the gastrointestinal tract. Lemon water assists in the process of digestion and elimination.
Lemon juice is similar in atomic structure to saliva, hydrochloric acid, bile and the stomach’s other digestive juices.
The digestive qualities of lemon juice help to relieve symptoms of indigestion, such as heartburn, belching and bloating. For the relief of heartburn, take 3-4 drops of lemon in half a glass of water.
Lemon water will also help to eliminate waste through the bowels more efficiently, thus preventing or alleviating constipation, diarrhea and other gastrointestinal disorders.
Colds and Flu
Bacteria and viruses that cause cold and flu symptoms thrive in an acidic environment in the body, due to excess stress and unhealthy foods and lifestyle.
Drinking lemon water has an alkalizing effect on the body.
Increasing body alkalinity is one of the key benefits of drinking lemon water. In addition, because of its antibacterial properties, lemon water will help control unhealthy bacteria.
For a sore throat, gargle frequently with 3-4 drops lemon oil with pure water.
