As a certified personal trainer, nutrition specialist and health coach, my clients know that I love lemons. If they overhear me talking to someone else about the benefits of lemon, I can hear them chuckle to themselves, saying he’s talking about lemons again. I have good reason to rave on about them – they are amazing for the human body.
This little amazing fruit should be consumed everyday – I have at least 1 – 2 lemons minimum everyday. Have a glass or two of lemon water, or add it as an ingredient in salad dressings, or add a whole lemon and the zest in your freshly squeezed juice, for example. Try it and watch the benefits…
Lemons are a nutritional and medicinal powerhouse. Here are just some of the lemon benefits:
· Helps reduce scaring
· Improves the immune system
· Improves acne and wrinkles
· Helps cleanse the lymphatic system
· Kills intestinal parasites
· Helps remove moles naturally
· Improves liver function
· Aids weight loss
· Helps fade freckles, and MUCH MORE
Are you one of those people who get bitten by those annoying mosquitoes? Now here’s one trick that works wonders… Just grab a wedge of lemon and rub the fresh lemon juice over it. That’s it! No harsh chemicals – just a simple, cost effective and natural remedy.
I’ve shared this trick with many friends and family and they couldn’t believe the results. The swelling and redness reduced in no time at all. And, the itchiness subsided very quickly.
Isn’t it amazing how natural remedies such as these are not widely known? Why spend money on products that are most likely laden with many toxic chemicals, and can be potentially harmful to your body? Although these are externally applied, they actually penetrate your skin and go through your blood stream.
It’s plain simple - go natural. Go lemons!
Actually, one of my trusted colleagues, Claire has an amazing story about how she was able to turn her health around by using some simple home remedies...
The benefits of lemons don’t end there… According to the Institute of Health Sciences, Baltimore, their research found that lemons are effective for cancer!
It is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy. Plus, it doesn’t produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. Why do we not know about that? Because big pharmaceutical companies are interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits.
Lemons are 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 also considered an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure for those suffering from high blood pressure, it has antidepressant effects, combats stress and nervous disorders.
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 nearly 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin (one of the main chemotherapy drugs), 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.
So now can you see why I continuously rave on about lemons and strongly encourage everyone to have their daily dose of lemons.
So every morning upon rising, squeeze the juice of 1 fresh lemon into a large glass or two of water and reap the benefits.
