Can A Lemon A Day Keep The Doctor Away?

Interestingly enough, a fresh lemon can provide you with more than just a bitter taste in your mouth.  It turns out that lemons contain some of the rarest and most beneficial properties of any other fruit.  Here are a few of the “powers” and health benefits of the lemon:

  • Relieves heartburn, bloating and belching;
  • Relieves constipation and diarrhea;
  • Dissolvent of uric acid and other poisons;
  • Assists in bone development during pregnancy;
  • Includes potassium which nourishes brain and nerve cells;
  • Includes calcium which builds up bony structures and healthy teeth;
  • Treats asthma, colds, coughs, sore throat, flu, fevers, and joint pain;
  • Treats biliousness (constipation, headache, loss of appetite and vomiting of bile);
  • The liver can make more enzymes out of fresh lemon juice than any other food!

In order for you to realize these benefits from lemon juice, it must be in raw form.  This is a result of it’s anionic (negatively charged) atomic structure.  All other foods are considered to be cationic, including pasteurized and packaged lemon juice.  Fresh lemon juice is an antiseptic, which means that it prevents the presence of pathogenic bacteria (a.k.a. sepsis) and the decomposition of tissue (a.k.a. putrefaction). It also helps prevent disease and assists in cleansing the body of impurities.


A “powerful” lemon is what I call a lemon that is high in mineral content.  There are two easy techniques you can use:

Is the lemon heavy for it’s size? You can do this buy holding the lemon and weighing it between other lemons of its size.  The heavier lemon for it’s size, the better.

How many points are on the calyx? The calyx is a series of lines (often in the shape of a star) coming out from where the stem would be. The more number of points on the “star,” the higher mineral content.


I recommend using lemon juice in conjunction with a few dashes of cayenne pepper, which also has amazing health benefits as I will discuss in another post.  By squeezing half a lemon into a cup of hot water, with a few dashes of cayenne pepper — it not only makes a delicious drink, but if you have one of these little gems everyday you’re going to feel great and stay healthy!  Cheers!

…May This Serve You Well.

    How can you use the whole lemon without waste? the lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.
    Sprinkle it to your whisky, wine, vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes. All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before. Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore.

    The surprising benefits of lemon!
    Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.
    Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits. You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations? As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc… It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant,combats stress and nervous disorders.
    The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas …The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.
