Lemon Juice and Liver and Gallbladder CleansingLemon juice detox is an excellent adjunct to liver cleansing. The natural antiseptic qualities of lemon help reduce harmful bacteria. Juice from ½ organic, all-natural lemon can be mixed with purified water to help with liver cleansing, as well as respiratory problems, sore throats, and healthy skin. It helps the liver produce the necessary enzymes to maintain and alkaline condition in the body, and it has even been known to help with heartburn.
When mixed with organic lemon juice and olive oil, avocados can help the body rid itself of gallstones and has shown to help arthritis, atherosclerosis, diabetes and kidney stones.
Lemon Juice and Kidney StonesOrganic lemon juice has also been shown to help with kidney stones. One favorite natural remedy for kidney stones involves mixtures of a lemon juice, olive oil, and water, and another mixture of water, organic raw apple cider vinegar, and ½ an organic lemon.
Lemon Juice and the FluThe antiseptic qualities of lemon juice make it ideal for helping with the flu. It helps purify the lymphatic system so your body is better able to fight off the disease. Adding black pepper and fresh ginger to lemon juice will also help alleviate excessive mucous.
Lemon Juice Alone Is Not Total Body CleansingPlease keep in mind that while organic lemon juice can and does play a significant role in body cleansing regimens, it is not to be exclusively relied upon for detoxification. Rather, if you’re interested in cleansing your body, I recommend following one of our complete cleansing protocols. Each of these programs contains full nutritional and supplemental guidelines that incorporate the key components of lemon juice detox in the best way possible to help cleanse the colon, liver, and gallbladder.
