Healing Lemon Water

Healing Lemon Water

Lemons contain powerful antibacterial, antiviral and immune boosting components.
Beginning your day with a glass of lemon water will help you eliminate toxins, stimulate your metabolism, improve your digestion and boost your energy.

Begin with 1/4 lemon in 8 ounces of water first thing in the morning.
Use filtered or spring water unless you are doing a temporary detox. In that case, use distilled water.
(Although distilled water will draw out toxins faster, it will also remove needed calcium, magnesium and other important trace minerals.)
Build up to 32 ounces per day total, once upon awakening, then ten minutes before each meal.
