Lemon Juice Therapy And Lemon Detox Diet

Juice therapy is a method of treating diseases, using a diet that only consists of fresh fruit and vegetable juices. Juice therapy has been shown to be effective in the treatment of many illnesses, and works well to give the body’s digestive system a break. It gives time for the digestive and assimilative organs to rest and revitalise themselves. At the same time, fresh fruit juices contain many medicinal properties, which can positively help illnesses.

Lemon juice is an easily made juice, and lemons are usually found in most households.
Lemons are rich in Vitamin C, which is essential for the health of our immune and digestive systems. It is also known to have antioxidant properties that are effective in fighting cancers. The juice itself has been shown to have strong anti-bacterial properties.

Lemon juice has been used for ages for its qualities. Sailors have traditionally used it to ward of scurvy, which is caused by the lack of Vitamin C. If your diet lacks vitamin C, you can include plenty of lemon juice in it. Lemon juice is also used to provide relief from fevers, especially those that are caused by the sun or dehydration. You can make tasty and healthy lemon juice by mixing the juice of one or two lemons with water, and adding some sugar or honey to it.

Lemon Water And Juicing Benefits

Lemon juice has plenty of other health benefits. It is known to be a blood purifier, as the acidic nature of a lemon helps decrease acidity levels in the body. If you’re suffering from acidity, you can drink a glass of lemon juice after a heavy meal to ease the discomfort. It can also be used to bring peaceful sleep to those who suffer from insomnia. Because of its anti bacterial qualities, lemon juice can help to treat all illnesses of the digestive tract. Keep in mind that it cannot be your main treatment, but should be considered more as a tonic and supplement.

This tasty drink has also been shown to help in healing common cold, asthma, sore throat, halitosis, diarrhoea, dehydration and even arthritis and obesity.

You can consume as much lemon juice as you want, as long as you dilute the juice with water. Instead of sugar, you can use honey as this is healthier and does not inhibit the properties of the lemon. Remember to use fresh lemons, and to consume the juice immediately after making it, as lemon juice oxidizes very fast.
