Once traded as a rare commodity, lemons have been a precious fruit for centuries. Even in their early use, lemons were primarily adapted for flavoring and preserving food; however, their purposefulness then and now extends far beyond the kitchen. Lemons and their tangy juice are used as a potent antidote to a number of different health effects and conditions.
What are Lemons?
Yellow, oval-shaped citrus fruits, lemons have thick skin and possess an aromatic and acidic juice. The fruit is produced by evergreen citrus trees that are typically cultivated in warm climates. As a citrus fruit, a lemon contains a variety of health benefits and nutrients.
Lemons are extremely high in a number of beneficial nutrients. This golden fruit is an excellent source of common nutrients including vitamin B6, iron, potassium, and vitamin C. The fruit is also a very good source of dietary fiber and contains a number of other nutrients including calcium, copper, folic acid, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc.
Lemons are also a good source of bioflavonoids and antibacterial agents. Bioflavonoids are natural compounds in some fruits and vegetables that enhance the fruits’ antioxidant effects and protect individuals against the damaging effects of free radicals. Likewise, lemons possess natural antibacterial properties, making lemons an effective treatment for a variety of health conditions.
Health Benefits of Lemons
Lemons are not only flavorful; they are also extremely healthful. With their innate nutrients and natural health components, lemons can be used to emit a wide range of health benefits.
Lemons are naturally effective for restoring the pH balance in the body, detoxifying the digestive system and clearing indigestion and constipation. The fruit is also effective for aiding in weight loss, eliminating acne, eradicating parasites, and treating asthma. The bright, yellow fruit is also effective for treating canker scores, reducing fever, relieving toothaches, curing the common cold and fighting fatigue. Other applications of this magical fruit include high cholesterol and blood pressure, halitosis, bug bites, corns and calluses, insomnia, nausea, vomiting, varicose veins, and osteoporosis.
Lemons can be used in the form of juice, tea, drinks, poultices, and bath soaks. In whatever form, the cheery fruit has a wide array of advantageous healing properties.

[YEA] When I had fever or a very bad headache, Mom would slice a lemon.....take a linen or cotton towel.....take the slices of lemon and put them in a row on the towel and sprinkle a lot of baking soda on the lemon slices; roll the towel and cover the slices; make the towel like a bandage, tie it around the head (as if you were wounded in the Civil war...) and go to sleep. It worked every time; felt 90% better!!!! I do this often and for me it works; hope it works for you too!
|SIDE EFFECT (1)||100%|
[SIDE EFFECTS] Ted, I have Addison's disease & have a hard time keeping my electrolytes balanced out. If they are out of balance I have muscle pain and very fatigued. I have been using the baking soda/lemon recipe you show here on Earth Clinic to alkaline my Ph, it worked the very first day like a miracle, I had lots of energy and was feeling good, however as the week went on I got to feeling worse, I was only doing this twice a day 1/2 lemon and 1/4 tsp baking soda to 4 ounces of water and my face got extremely, extremely dry, I am now severely fatigued, stomach is bloated & crampy, I am achy all over, sore throat, all the signs of electrolyte imbalance & my blood pressure is all over the place, one hour it will be low with low heart rate then the next its high blood pressure with high heart rate, it has not been stable. I have been more drowsy and out of it lately. I drink lots of water, and I take in salt & potassium so I don't know what is going on. I seem to be having a acid imbalance but of what? I don't know if its low potassium or calcium or sodium? I know emergency rooms uses baking soda to help lower very high levels of potassium fairly quickly. Could it be my potassium is low? I have started being nauseated now, and very weak and unable to do anything. It seems to be getting worse. My Ph is akalined soon after I do the lemon/Baking soda recipe but it goes back to acidic within 4 hours. I don't know what to do but I do know I am desperate to feel better. I don't know what to do to get to feeling better again. Should I quit the Baking Soda & Lemon? Or am I doing it wrong? Please Help. Thanks
