A Simple Lemon Detox
Try this lemon alkalizing and detoxification protocol for one week and your body will thank you.
First thing in the morning, cut a well-ripened lemon in half and squeeze the juice into lukewarm,
preferably filtered, water.
Drink unsweetened, immediately.
Wait at least 15 minutes before eating or drinking anything else.
The first morning, drink the juice of half a lemon diluted in a glass of lukewarm water.
On the following days, increase the dose by half a lemon a day, until reaching 3-4 lemons.
Once the maximum dose has been reached, the quantity of juice should be reduced by
half a lemon day until reaching one lemon a day.
For at least one month, continue the dose of one lemon a day.
During the detoxification, keep your diet light, eating mostly fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
Try to get lots of sun, fresh air and exercise.
Lemon water is so good for you, I am going to continue having a glass of lemon water as a
daily morning ritual.
In view of the long list of lemon’s benefits it’s literally ‘good for what ails you’!
