The Amazing Health Benefits
of Drinking Lemon Water
by Ann Heustad, R.N.
After visiting some friends recently who drank
copious amounts of water spiked with fresh organic limes and lemons
from trees in their yard and freely offered this delicious
concoction to all their guests, the following article reminded me of
the value of our mutual dedication to planetary health and wellness
through simple healthful remedies.
There are basic lifestyle habits that are
important to incorporate into your daily life, and this is certainly
one of them. However, we are talking about organic lemons that are
tree ripened. If you are buying commercial lemons from the store,
learn kinesiology and muscle test the lemons you buy so that you
know one way or another whether the lemons you are purchasing are
actually therapeutic for you.
“When life gives you a lemon... squeeze it, mix
it with six ounces of distilled water and drink twice daily.”
The value of eating lemons is reported by Jethro
Kloss in his book Back to Eden:
“The medicinal value of the lemon is as follows:
It is an antiseptic, or is an agent that prevents sepsis [the
presence of pathogenic bacteria] or putrefaction [decomposition of
tissue]. It is also anti-scorbutic, a term meaning a remedy which
will prevent disease and assist in cleansing the system of
Due to the digestive qualities of lemon juice,
symptoms of indigestion such as heartburn, bloating and belching are
relieved. By drinking lemon juice regularly, the bowels are aided in
eliminating waste more efficiently thus controlling constipation and
On page 659 of Back to Eden, Mr. Kloss points out
that, “The lemon is a wonderful stimulant to the liver and is a
dissolvent of uric acid and other poisons, liquefies the bile, and
is very good in cases of malaria. Sufferers of chronic rheumatism
and gout will benefit by taking lemon juice, also those who have a
tendency to bleed, uterine hemorrhages, etc.; rickets and
tuberculosis. In pregnancy, it will help to build bone in the child.
We find that the lemon contains certain elements which will go to
build up a healthy system and keep that system healthy and well. As
a food, we find, owing to its potassium content, it will nourish the
brain and nerve cells. Its calcium builds up the bony structure and
makes healthy teeth.
“Its magnesium, in conjunction with calcium, has
an important part to play in the formation of albumen in the blood.
The lemon contains potassium 48.3, calcium 29.9, phosphorus 11.1,
magnesium 4.4. Lemons are useful in treating asthma, biliousness,
colds, coughs, sore throat, diphtheria, la grippe [flu or
influenza], heartburn, liver complaint[s], scurvy, fevers and
Since many people today suffer from what they
used to call biliousness, it is important to edify our readers to
Biliousness -- 1. A symptom of a disorder of the
liver causing constipation, headache, loss of appetite and vomiting
of bile. 2. excess of bile; a bilious fever.
Why the lemon works so well
On page 19 of A.F. Beddoe's book “Biological
Ionization in Human Nutrition,” he states that: “Man does not live
off the food he eats but off of the energy that is produced from the
food he eats.”
The energy you get from your food comes from the
atoms and molecules of energy in your food. A reaction takes place
as cationic food enters the digestive tract and encounters anionic
To explain further, an ion is part of a molecule
con-atom or a group of atoms that carry an electrical charge. Ions
which carry positive charges are “cations.” Lemons are
considered to be anionic, having more electrons (negatively charged ions) of energy
as compared to cations (positively charged ions) in their atomic
structure. Saliva, hydrochloric acid, bile and the stomach's other
digestive juices are also anionic.
Lemon is one of the only foods on the planet that
has more anions than cations in its atomic structure.
When considering the electromagnetic properties
of food Dr. Beddoe points out that all foods are considered cationic
with the exception of fresh, raw lemon juice. Some have suggested
that the reason fresh lemon juice is similar to digestive enzymes is
due to the low amount of sulfur in lemons. It should be noted that
pasteurized and packaged lemon juice is cationic and, therefore,
ineffective as a health remedy.
Who Can Benefit From Lemon Water
Dr. Beddoe continues on page 194: “Lemon water is
used in every person that can tolerate it. That is, if there is no
allergy to lemon (a very few have a true allergy to lemon) and no
active ulcers, then all adults and most children should use the
lemon water. The purpose of the lemon is to:
provide a natural strengthening agent to the
liver enzymes when they are too dilute.
The liver can make more enzymes out of fresh
lemon juice than any other food element.
The lemon helps fix oxygen and calciums in
the liver because it regulates blood carbohydrate levels which
affect the blood oxygen levels.”
In the above book, Dr. Beddoe also cites an
article by Dr. Michael Lesser on the medical promise of citric acid
in “Anabolism, Journal of Preventive Medicine.” He uses this article
to validate the value of using fresh lemon juice daily: “It appears
that citric acid, the major carrier of biochemicals in the body's
energy system, shows important promise, primarily because of its
excellent properties as a chelator. Its ability to form soluble
complexes with calcium offers major promise in the successful
treatment of pancreatic stones and has also been employed to
dissolve kidney stones. Since calcium deposits are of major
significance in the much greater problem of hardening of the
arteries, citric acid may possibly contribute to a safe and
effective reversal of this widespread degenerative disease.”
Even though medical doctors are not currently
employing lemon juice in the treatment of the above conditions, this
article substantiates the fact that one of the benefits of fresh
lemon water is the way the citric acid is able to act upon the
body's systems differently than any other food.
Lemon Remedies Published by Jethro Kloss in Back
For sore throat, dilute lemon juice with
water and gargle frequently. Dilute one-half lemon juice with
one-half water. It is even better to use straight lemon juice.
A slice of lemon bound over a corn overnight
will greatly relieve the pain.
A slice of lemon bound over a felon [pus
formation on a finger joint] will not fail to bring the pus to
the surface where it can be easily removed.
To relieve asthma, take a tablespoon of lemon
juice one hour before each meal.
For liver complaints, the juice of the lemon
should be taken in a glass of hot water one hour before
breakfast every morning.
To break up la grippe [flu or influenza],
drink a large glass of hot water with the juice of a lemon
added, while at the same time have the feet in a deep bucket or
other vessel of water with mustard added to it. The water should
be deep enough to where it comes nearly up to the knees. Keep
adding hot water to the patient's tolerance and until the
patient begins to perspire freely (about 20-30 minutes). Be sure
there is no draft on the person while this is done. The patient
should be near a bed so he can get in it easily and avoid any
danger of getting chilled. If convenient, a full hot bathtub
would be good in place of the foot-bath. The lemon water should
be taken every hour until the patient feels that all the
symptoms of the cold are gone.
A teaspoon of lemon juice in half a glass of
water relieves heartburn.
For rheumatism, one or two ounces of lemon
juice diluted in water should be taken three times a day: one
hour before meals and at bedtime.
In cases of hemorrhage, lemon juice diluted
in water and taken as cold as possible will stop it.
Scurvy is treated by giving one to two ounces
of lemon juice diluted with water every two to four hours.
In excessive menstruation the juice of three
to four lemons a day will help check it. Best to take the juice
of one lemon at a time in a glass of cold water.
Mr. Kloss explains how lemon juice can even help
someone with stomach ulcers:
“How can one with an inflamed or ulcerated
stomach partake in the juice? Would not a strong acid like that of
the lemon act as an irritant? That would depend on how it was taken.
If in quantity, yes. But to take it very weak at first [diluted
sufficiently in water], it will cease to burn. The sufferer
afflicted with ulcerated stomach has to use great perseverance to
affect a cure, and it can be cured if care and patience is used. The
gastric juice in the stomach is four times as strong as lemon
In these cases, I recommend one to two
tablespoons of Aloe Vera Gel before the lemon water. Taking 500 mg.
of Bromelin has also proven to be helpful.
Buying a sweet lemon
Some lemons are more sweet than others. A rule of
thumb for selecting a lemon that is both sweet and high in mineral
content, is to pick one that has a high specific gravity measurement
and is heavy for its size. By comparing equal-sized fruit, the one
with the greatest weight will have the most mineral content and
sugar. A thick skinned lemon will not be as heavy as a thin skinned
lemon and will not have the desired sweetness or mineral content.
The method I use to ensure the purchase of sweet
lemons is to look at the stem end of the lemon. There are two ends
on the lemon. One end has a point where the blossom started to grow;
the other end has a stem or a dimple where the stem used to be
located. On the stem end of a highly mineralized, sweet lemon, you
will see little lines radiating out of the stem like sunbeams. These
little lines can look like a star shaped structure and is called a
calyx. The calyx may have three, four, five or more points to the
star. The greater the number of points on the calyx, the higher the
mineral content of the lemon.
How much lemon to use
If you are in good health and weigh less than 150
pounds, squeeze the juice of one half a lemon (one ounce) into a
glass of purified water and drink this mixture twice a day (one
whole lemon a day.) If you weigh over 150 pounds, squeeze the juice
out of an entire lemon (two ounces) into a glass of purified water
and drink this mixture twice a day (two whole lemons a day.) The
lemon juice can be diluted more according to taste.
To help your body get the energy from the food
you are eating, drink lemon water regularly. Next to drinking plain
purified water, drinking lemon water daily is the most important
thing you can do for your health.
