Lemon Benefits

I had heard some time ago how healthy it was to drink a glass of Water with Lemon every morning so I have been doing that for quite a while. It’s a nice way to wake up in the morning and for me, it takes any hunger pains away. Lemons are very acidic so it’s not surprising that Lemons and Cancer are diametrically opposed to one another. This alone is all the more reason to be ingesting lemons every day.

When I ran across the following article that was sent from a friend of mine in Florida I just wanted to share it with you. I think it’s very important. I had never heard of putting a lemon in the freezer and then using it on just about everything. I have used lemon zest in soups, on salads, and on a great many dishes for years but didn’t think of using a frozen lemon and grating it up . How nice not to be wasting so much of a good thing.

How can you use the whole lemon without waste?
Simple..place 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 whiskey, 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. Now that you’ve learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles. What’s the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?

Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that’s what you’ve been wasting. But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.
It’s also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.

Frozen Lemons and Cancer

So place your lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer! That’s the frozen lemons and cancer secret!
Better late than NEVER!
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.

  • Carl Sokol says:

    I began a month ago to freely use grated whole lemon which I keep in the freezer. What a great thing this is. I heard about it on our trip to the Poconos in June. Someone in a health food store confirmed an article Ii read was true. It said to freeze a whole lemon and grate it all! Using it freely this way is such a revelation.

  • harold says:

    Sorry, I don’t get it, lemon acidic? diametrically opposed to cancer?
    I am not an expert on nutrition but this does not make sense; the fluid environment of the cancer cells is very acidic, one the ways to cure cancer is by alkalizing the body fluids using baking soda. So if lemon is acidic as you said then it will help the tumors grow instead.
    So, I think it make better sense if we think that the lemon may tasted acid but the lemon juice becomes highly alkalized once digestion begins.

    • Jacqui says:

      Hi Harold,
      You are absolutely correct…one of the ways to cure cancer is by alkalizing the body and this can be done with a plant-based diet as meat along with other
      animal products are very acid.
      As far as the lemon goes it does make sense because lemon or lime when processed by the body turn alkaline.
      I would like to send you a piece that just came to me from Dr. John McDougall, M.D. It’s about cancer and diet. I will do that right now if your email works.

      • C Evans says:

        how many Tablespoons a day do you recommend/suggest of frozen grated whole lemon. (at beyond precaution stage)

        • Jacqui says:

          Hello C Evans,
          Sorry to take so long in replying to you. Remember that lemons, just like all natural whole foods, are preventative measures so we don’t get sick. The nice thing about lemons is that even
          though they appear to be acidic when they hit the system they are alkaline. I wouldn’t recommend overdoing anything. I think you can grate fresh frozen lemon on just about anything and enjoy the taste. If you’re grating so much lemon on your food that you don’t enjoy it don’t do so much. Lemons probably aren’t going to cure anything but they are another prevention. The whole idea is to build up your immune system as much as possible and that can be done with a good whole foods diet. If getting cancer or having cancer is what you’re thinking about your entire diet of whole foods is essential and lemons can certainly be part of that. In the case of breast cancer it took those cancerous cells around 10 years to get where they could even be detected. Raw organic foods should be a part of your diet and lemons are certainly a part of that.

          • ChrisJ. Huber says:

            I think the article you spread is dangerous nonsense half false half true. See snope.com. The “fascinating source of the information” is anonymous. More dangerous is when you pretend that frozen lemons are 10’000 times stronger than chemotherapy. What if people believe this and stop their chemotherapy. Given the fact there is worldwide no scientific or medical study reporting the effects of citrus it’s just one more urban legend.

          • Jacqui says:

            The article that this came from has been circulating for some time. Unfortunately there is no “cure” for cancer. Lemon juice is good for the system…does turn alkaline when in the system rather than acidic and is just another thing to help prevent illnesses.

    • Alvin Iker says:

      Please send th information the Doctor sent to you

      • Jacqui says:

        The doctor didn’t send any information to me. The article came across my desk as I stated and I found it interesting. At the end of the article I also mentioned some of the
        flaws. I am a plant-based nutritionist having studied with Colin Campbell from Cornell U. There are many benefits from lemons. I would doubt that they cure anything…like all healthy eating our best bet is to prevent the disease or diseases in the first place.

    • Alex says:

      Yes I agree with you. When lemons or any citric fruits are ingested, then the acid turns to alkaline and yes it’s alkaline that’s needed to.destroy cancer cells. I confirmed this with a nutritionist.

  • Zach says:

    I’m not convinced this is true: http://www.snopes.com/medical/disease/lemons.asp Lemons are considered useful in prevention of certain cancer types. I don’t think there is research showing it can cure cancer. Plus there are lots of cancer types that act differently, so the information you provide is very vague and misleading.

    • Jacqui says:

      I don’t think “it” can cure cancer. If “it” could we wouldn’t need any doctors natural or otherwise. The best and most logical approach to curing Cancer is to prevent it in the first place. In many cases this is simply not possible but don’t you think that there are ways including drinking a glass of lemon water each morning, to help ourselves? Such as eating a high starch, plant based diet. Eating foods that aren’t processed, refined or GMO’s?

  • Anna says:

    Hi Jacqui! Thanks for this article! I just received the exact article in an email and shared it on Facebook. Do you have any sources to back this up, by chance? I love my lemon! I also use Young Living’s Lemon oil in my water in the morning. That oil is slowly steam distilled from the peel. I love it…it’s so energizing!

  • Pat says:

    Good morning Jacqui

  • Patricia says:

    Good morning Jacqui
    I have just found your article. I have heard before the benefits of lemon peel and was enthusiastic to read your article.
    Since I read it I have been grating whole lemons in my food blender and freezing the grated lemon in ice cube trays.
    Is there any reason why the lemon would have to be frozen before grating?
    I the heat water and place the frozen cube into it with a teaspoon of honey. It is delicious.
    I do not have cancer but like you try to eat healthily just to keep good health.
    Thank You. Patricia

    • Jacqui says:

      Hi Patricia,
      I like the lemons in the ice cube trays! I think it’s just very easy to grate the lemon when it’s frozen.
      Lemons also turn quite alkaline in the body so you’re not making your body more acidic.
      I’m glad you try to eat healthily!!! Good for you. More people should follow your example!
      Have a great weekend.

    Hi Jacqui

    Very exciting information. Thank you

  • Bill Slateritz says:

    How much of the frozen lemon do you grate on your food? I wouldn’t think it would be the whole thing,
    pulp, rind and all would it? I tried it for the first time and grated just some of the skin or rind on
    cottage cheese and cereal. Also, this seems to be coming to light now. Why hasn’t medical science let
    the world know of the cancer healing properties
    until now?

    • Jacqui says:

      Hi Bill,
      Grate a little (and yes, from the skin down) and if you like that grate a little more. It’s about you and your tastes. Another thing I do is squeeze a lime or 1/4 to 1/2 lemon
      in a glass of pure water every morning and drink it. It’s a nice way to wake up and is very good for you just like the frozen lemon. Do brush your teeth after your lemon
      drink as the acid can hurt the enamel on your teeth. Limes and lemons are acidic but not when they are inside your body…they turn alkaline and that’s what we want. More alkalinity than acidity.

      Medical science along with the pharmaceutical companies make huge amounts of money selling drugs and giving operations along with chemo and radiation. I think if people knew how the cancer cell develops they would be doing what they could to prevent cancer in the first place. A great deal of this has to do with diet. The American Diet causes cancer or certainly is one of the main factors. Especially dairy products and more specifically, milk. It is impossible to know there are cancer cells in anyone’s body until those cells have been around for about 10 years. What do you suppose is happening all this time??

      Check out Dr. John McDougall, M.D. and his utubes on Diet and Cancer.

      Have a great end of the week and weekend.

  • Hi Jacqui,

    I enjoyed reading your blog.

    A friend sent me the article on grating a frozen lemon. I did an internet search to see if I could find the source. I came upon your blog and found it very interesting. I read the June 7, 2012 entry where you stated, “Lemons are very acidic so it’s not surprising that Lemons and Cancer are diametrically opposed to one another. This alone is all the more reason to be ingesting lemons every day.” I immediately took issue with your statement and decided to read further to see if you clarified your words. Of course you did.

    On your October 2, 2012 entry, you recommended that Bill brush his teeth after consuming the lemon water. For nearly three years, I have been drinking two tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice and water the first thing every morning. However, I was told to brush my teeth prior to drinking the very warm lemon water and then follow with another glass of warm water. This rinses the acidic residue from the mouth without any abrasive brushing to damage the enamel of the teeth. I was taught the water should be hot, but not hot enough to kill the enzymes. I was also instructed it was best not to eat or drink anything for 45-60 minutes, to allow the liver time to process the lemon water. Your thoughts on this?

    I also have worked in the field of whole food nutrition for nearly 20 years. I am a National Marketing Director for Juice Plus+, the most sold and researched whole food nutrition product in the world. The JP encapsulated fruit and vegetable juice powders carry a nutrition label vs. a supplement label. JP is made from 25 different fruits, vegetables and berries, that are grown under careful conditions and picked at optimum ripeness. The resulting pristine juice powders are divided into Orchard, Garden & Vineyard blends and encapsulated for convenience and taste. JP is marketed as a bridge between what we should eat and what we do eat. I personally consider JP my core nutrition for the day; that’s where it starts. I still endeavor to eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible. However if I cannot manage to do so, I believe JP is my safety net for solid cellular nutrition. If you are familiar with JP, I would love to know what you think about it.

    Thank you for your input.

  • Margaret says:

    I was wondering if you are familiar with “True Lemon”…which is crystallized lemon made by True Citrus Co., Baltimore, Md.21237. (The essential lemon oils and juices are cold-pressed and crystallized .) I have been using this for the past few years and I use it for all the times I need lemon for something.. I am curious to know if this would be as beneficial as frozen, grated lemons.

    • Jacqui says:

      I wonder also. It seems to me that the real thing is always better but who knows? I will work on doing some research
      on this. Thank you for your comment.

  • Patricia says:

  • Pontine says:

    Dear Jaqui,

    This is a very interesting article and I love your last paragraph. Could you tell me which drug company it is that has done the 20 tests since 1970 proving that Lemon can cure 12 types of cancer? And who proved that lemons were 10,000 times better than Adriamycin? Any references or resources would be very much appreciated.

    Many Thanks,
    Pontine

    • Jacqui says:

      Hi Pontine,
      As I mentioned this article was sent to me. I think these claims are extremely exaggerated and I think your comments are excellent. The information came from the
      Institute of Health Sciences, 819 N. L.L.C. Cause Street, Baltimore, MD 1201. This obviously isn’t the largest drug company but an Institute. I apologize for not including the following information which was at the bottom of the article: Analysis: While it’s true that recent scientific studies have shown that lemons and other citrus fruits contain compounds which may have anti-carcinogenic properties, I’ve found nothing in the existing literature to support the wildly exaggerated claims above — for example, the claim that lemon is “10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy,” or the claim that it is “a proven remedy against cancers of all types.”

      Nor have I found evidence to support the allegation that these claims originated from “one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world.”

      A representative of the Institute of Health Sciences told me the organization did not publish the text, was not the source of the claims, and indeed, as an allied health school, isn’t in the business of providing medical information to the general public.

      What the actual research says

      Several substances occurring naturally in citrus fruits have been found to have cancer-fighting potential in scientific studies, of which the two most promising appear to be limonoids and pectin.

      Limonoids, a class of natural compounds found mainly in the skin and seeds of citrus fruits, are being studied as both a preventative and a treatment for cancer. For example, research has shown that particular limonoids can inhibit the spread of breast cancer cells in vitro. Further research is needed to determine their clinical effectiveness in human beings.

      Modified citrus pectin, derived from the natural pectin found in the pulp and peel of citrus fruits, has been shown in animal and in vitro studies to reduce the metastasization of cancer cells. Again, further research is needed to prove their clinical effectiveness in humans.

      It goes without saying that lemons and other citrus fruits are nutritious and health-promoting in myriad ways, so while the jury may still be out on exactly how and to what extent they’re effective in preventing and treating cancer, they should certainly be regarded as an essential component of a healthy diet.

      We have no absolute known cure for cancer as you well know. If we did we wouldn’t have people dying of cancer. I think the lemon idea is a good one and there are many other ways to help prevent cancer in the first place, the best way being to stay away from animal products. There is a lot of evidence to back this up. Also, this is not saying that staying away from animal products will prevent or cure cancer but it’s a good start.

    Hi Jacqui,

    Very interestin article. It is a pity though that is full of hot air and totaly incorrect on some very basic facts. Please refer to the following links for:
    Data on fresh lemon juce:
    http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-and-fruit-juices/1938/2
    Data on frozen lemon juce:
    http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-and-fruit-juices/1940/2
    Data on lemon peel:
    http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-and-fruit-juices/1941/2
    Simple facts are:
    1. Roughly, you will need to drink 50% more of frozen juce to get benefits similar to drinking fresz juce.
    2. The truth appears to be exactly opposite to the statment that peel has 10 times the vitamin content. The peel is almost useless when compared with a fresh lemon juce…
    Just these two facts are enough to indicate that either citrus sales in USA are very bad or an idiot wrote the article… And the cancer caims… shame!

    Best Regards

    Roman

    • Jacqui says:

      Hi Roman,
      Thank you for your response. An idiot did write the article and hopefully you read the responses to the article. I actually apologize for putting it out there but
      I’ve certainly gotten a lot of comments on it…both good and bad. The idea of putting a lemon in the freezer is a good one and I do it. I also drink fresh lemon juice in water
      every morning when I get up.
      I did not research that article (very poor response on my part!) It certainly was far fetched and I should have added all the info that is included in these comments but I didn’t. I usually research
      just about everything. Lesson learned on my part.
      I used to believe just about everything and felt that people were honest when they wrote whatever they wrote but am finding out that I really can’t believe anything. I do know how cancer starts and how long it takes to discover it. I am also very aware that if lemons could cure cancer there wouldn’t be so many people going through all the horrible cancer treatments.
      Anyway, you are right on and I appreciate it.

  • Billy says:

    A friend told me of this report, but regardless this much I know, squeeze 2 or 3 lemons and 1/3 cup of sugar into a container of water each morning and it will put the H20 back in your body you need. Where as coke, coffee an acohol take it away. I drink about 8 to 16 oz of lemon water each day, why because I won’t drink enough water otherwise. I drink the lemon juice and water each day and it helps, without it the urinary track hurts when H2O disapears. Works for me anyway.

  • jenni says:

    So what should be cut out of the diet apart from animal products? I struggled with an alkaline diet over the past year and often binged on the foods I should avoid… help please! I have hot lemon juice every day, I dont like cold drinks

    • Jacqui says:

      Hi Jenni, First, I am so sorry that I have taken so long to get back to you. The time has simply flown by. I was in China a short time ago and have been playing catch-up ever since.
      You have a wonderful world of food out there to enjoy. Grains, vegetables, fruits, seeds, legumes and nuts can all be part of your lifestyle and should all be part of your life style. The important thing is that you eat a variety of foods so you get all the nutrients your body requires. You need to go easy on the nuts as they are quite fattening but good for you. We, as humans, are not meant to eat animals. We neither have the teeth nor the short intestines to eat animal products. You want to eat whole foods, not refined and/or processed foods. Please read labels. If you can’t pronounce it…don’t eat it. The more organic foods the better. Stay away from GM foods and dairy. One can say that he/she is a vegan and live on French fries. Again, a varied diet is very important. Have you checked out my recipes on my http://www.dynamichealthnow.com site? There are lots of them and I add them all the time. Please subscribe to my free newsletter if you’d like.
      I will be happy to help you in the future and won’t take so long in doing so. Please ask me anytime. My email is j_percious@hotmail.com.
      Have a healthy day

    Dear Jacqui

    I’d like to know your take on Transfer Factor products (immune boosters) made from animal colostrum for the treatment/prevention of cancers?

    Much appreciated

    • Jacqui says:

      Hi Elaine,
      Apparently 4Life puts these products out. There is no doubt that we need a healthy immune system to fight cancer or any other disease. I personally am not interested
      in taking any animal product, but more importantly the cancer cell takes around 10 years to be visible on a mammogram as far as breast cancer is concerned, or detected in some other region
      of the body with whatever tests are taken.
      I think that the best way to maintain an excellent immune system is with a large variety of nutrients ingested from all kinds of legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. I believe animal
      products aid in developing various diseases.
      Unfortunately we now have to contend with GMO products in all our refined and processed foods along with fresh corn (if it is not organic), soy and canola.
      Try to grow as much as you can and support your local farmer’s markets etc.

  • bob decker says:

    Interesting subject, i am 85 yrs old and after hearing about drinking lemon juice tried it in the morning instead of orange juice,liked it so much i drank it every morning and one morning had the worst stomach ache ever, thought i was going to have to go to the hospital. i still like it but i would think use it with moderation and caution.

    • Jacqui says:

      Hello Bob,
      I’m so sorry you ended up with a stomach ache. I’m not quite your age but well on my way and I drink a glass of lemon juice and water every morning when I get up…on an empty stomach.
      What’s the rest of your diet? Probably it’s a good idea to drink the lemon/water in moderation. Another thing you might consider is freezing a lemon and grating it over salads or just about anything you are eating, especially if you like the taste. You will also be putting other nourishment into your system and perhaps you system would like that better.

  • Ron says:

    I have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and am waiting for radium treatment. In the meantime I have been eating grated frozen lemon rind in a slice of bread on a empty stomach first thing in the morning.My psa reading in August 2012 was 9.2 now in January 2013 it is 6.2. I like the taste so there is nothing wrong in carrying on with it.

    • Jacqui says:

      Hi Ron,
      I’m so sorry you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. That’s wonderful that your psa reading is down. I sure would carry on with the lemons…can’t hurt!
      Also, I would suggest you look up Dr. John McDougall and read what he has to say about prostate cancer. Take care and keep that psa down!

  • Ingrid Steppan says:

    Hi, I saw this on t.v. last week and thought what he heck it can’t hurt, so I bought a bag of lemons and put them in the freezer, yesterday I took one out, washed it and cut it into quarters, added a little water to the blender and a little stevia (a natural sweetner) and I blended it and drank the whole thing, I loved it. My kids thought I was nuts. I have a rare disease called Stiff Person Syndrome, it’s neurological and a lot of doctors think it’s autoimmune based? But I don’t think anyone really knows how we get this disease. I’ve spent the last three years trying to stay alive, so this seemed easy. I’ll let everyone know what the doctors say about my blood work after the next one? Maybe there will be a change, either good or bad at least I tried. Thanks for all the info and the comments that I read about this, very interesting.

    Ingrid/Ottawa ,Canada

    • Jacqui says:

      Hi Ingrid, Thank you so much for your comment. You’re right…can’t hurt and perhaps the frozen lemons will help. I’m so sorry about your Stiff Person disease. There really is such a disease?? Sounds awful. How is the rest of your diet?
      Take care and do let me know if there is a change in your blood work. For the better, I hope!

      I think things like whole grains, nuts and seeds do very well in the freezer for quite a long time but certainly not fresh things. Probably a couple of months is sufficient! Not a couple of years.

      The way to reduce your fat is to eat a whole foods (grains, vegetables, fruits, legumes, seeds and nuts) diet and not consider it a diet but a lifestyle. The lemon juice is

    Lemons are the best, I was sick for more then 7 days with a bad cough and cold, well I tell you when I started to use the lemon in my juicer in the morning< I was cough was gone, I am a firm believer it does not necessary mean u have to use frozen lemons ui can use fresh as well, dont over do it on the lemon, it can cause bad stomach ache, that will leave u the next day.

    Thanks for all your comments, love it..

    Thanks

    good day.im melody faciolan of cebu..i just want to ask, is its ok for 2 years old babay to drink lemon? thanks

    • Jacqui says:

      I don’t see why not, but if you have any questions about it ask your pediatrician. Lemon turns alkaline in the system…doesn’t stay acidic but is acidic on teeth so be sure to rinse baby’s mouth out with water.

    My Friend told me about this frozen wonder food and what it can do for your health,
    Frozen lemon grate what you want and return to the freezer fast before it starts to defrost,yo can use it on all meals if you want, I have had a lot of illness it works for me,
    I have told my friend and family they all agree with me.
    Why don’t you try it yourself before you decide!!!

  • cristina manimtim says:

    I’ve been drinking lemon water for quite sometime ,now that I know that frozen lemons are good in almost anything ( in food and drinks)- it won’t hurt if I’ll try. Thank you and God bless you.

  • Bobby says:

    What about the seeds? Do you grate the seeds of the frozen lemon as well? or is it better to take them out? Personally i don’t like the bitter taste of lemon seeds so id rather take them out, but it might be difficult to take the seeds out of a half grated frozen lemon.,,

    • Jacqui says:

      Hi Bobby,
      I don’t like the bitter seeds either so why eat them? Remember, this along with a good diet, preferably high starch, vegan, is preventative.
      Have a lovely day.

    Lemon oil may be used in aromatherapy. Researchers at The Ohio State University found that lemon oil aroma does not influence the human immune system, but may enhance mood.

    my husband has neuroendocrine cancer of the Rectum with spread to his liver and lungs since 2008. He has had all sorts of treatments, radiation therespheres to his liver chemotherapy. We started using the grated frozen lemons since January 2013 his last cat scan two months ago showed no new cancer cells, some have shrunk in size and some are stable. We will see what the next cat scan shows, his oncologist has labeled him stable at this time.

    • Jacqui says:

      Hello Bettyann,
      That is excellent that your husband’s oncologist has labeled him stable. Please keep me posted! I will keep you in my prayers.

    I just got a nutribullet. If you have one, chop the lemon into quarters and throw it in with some water. Blend. (They call it extract). Then you use the whole thing.

    i have a question …..i take lemon water with honey in morning after brushing my teeth for weigh reduction ..is it right to do after the brush or it is more beneficial to drink before brushing ?
    AND SECOND IS CAN I RINSE OFF MY MOUTH WITH SIMPLE WATER IMMEDIATELY AFTER TAKING IT ?
    last how much i wait to brush afeter taking it ?

    • Jacqui says:

      Thank you for your comment. What I do is drink lemon and water when I wake up in the mornings before brushing my teeth. I rinse my mouth with fresh water right after I drink the lemon juice.
      I probably wait around 20-30 minutes and then brush my teeth. Apparently the lemon juice can weaken the enamel so you don’t want to brush right away but the rinsing works just fine.

  • Thanks for a marvelous posting! I really enjoyed
    reading it, you might be a great author. I will make certain to bookmark your blog
    and definitely will come back in the future. I want to encourage you to definitely continue your great job, have a nice weekend!

  • Patricia says:

    Jacqui, How much of the frozen lemon do I eat every day. The whole lemon grated or just a teaspoon or two. How much is too much. Thanks for your reply.

    • Jacqui says:

      Hi Patricia,
      I would suggest you use the grated lemon on veggies and in salads. Eat as much as you like. It isn’t going to hurt you although the entire lemon is quite a bit. Lemon turns alkaline in your system rather than acidic which is what you want.
      I drink a glass of water with lemon juice in it every morning when I get up. A nice way to start the day. But, I am careful to rinse my teeth with plain water as I don’t want the acidic water sitting on the enamel of my teeth. That lemon water also turns alkaline when it moves into your system.

    Please everyone look up CHEMTRAILS and join the fight against these blood pressure raising, disease inducing chemicals that are sprayed by the govmil in the skies.

    • Jacqui says:

      I have read and listened to a great deal about chemtrails. So many people do not believe our government would do such a thing. I even mentioned it to my ex-husband, a geo-hydrologist, and he thought I was nuts. I do think this is what is happening. I live down here in San Carlos, Mexico, 250 miles south of the Border. Yesterday while going out to walk on the beach I counted 10 of these chemtrails and a few weeks ago while driving up to the States I counted 14 of them. There isn’t any way that these are appearing out of thin air all of a sudden!!! People need to wake up!
      Have a lovely weekend. Jacqui Percius
