How much did you drink? Recognize that it may take a few hours to get results.

I suggest you put the salt into the warm lemon water. It tastes so much better that way.

Quoted from purlgirl
Italy - I wonder what effect if any the salt/lemon might have on intestional flora. (could it kill candida?) Do you take something to encourage healthy intestinal flora?


Polyflora O.  I was taking quite a bit of it for a while, but backed off for a while. Really do need to get back to it. And remember to take the ghee each morning. Boy that'd be a really awful thing to do .  It's amazing I forget it so much, as much as I love it. Guess it's the thing w/ getting out of bed being so hard. Hardest thing I do all day. Can't wait for my adrenals to be healed. Always sleep til the last second, then rush around trying to get ready. Which is really just adding to the problem. I'm in a catch22 w/ this thing right now.  

Quoted from purlgirl
The link to Dr Lam about Adrenal Fatigue is a real eye opener. I'm still trying to absorb it and apply it.


It is a great article purlgirl and the more you learn here, the more sense it will make. I remember long time ago, the first time I read it, I understood a lot of it, but I reread it not long ago and alot more of it made sense this time. Plus I've been reading the A/F: 21st century book and I want to make time to post on one of the adrenal threads about it. I'll just say this here...........Vit C.........can't say enough how important it is for healthy adrenals.

I believe only a small, tiny pinch of good quality gray sea salt is required; 2 teaspoons of salt per glass be can quite salty.

Oh I agree and I'd think a steady diet of that wouldn't be good for one. I use 1/2 t salt in a small glass of water w/ my lemon, then follow that with more plain water.  Then the rest of my water thru the day.
Question re: lemon juice. I had been using Santa Cruz organic lemon juice (bottled). A friend of mine told me this kind of lemon juice is most likely pasturized and that changes how it acts in the body. She said it becomes acidic instead of alkaline. Comments please.
I must say, I used fresh lemon juice this morning and wow, what a difference. I'd forgotten how really good that tastes, but dont always have time to squeeze.

Pat, here's an implement that I use to squeeze the fresh lemons in the morning: CLICK. It takes barely any time at all to slice, squeeze, and rinse. Mine lives permanently in the dish drainer. They come in plastic, and enamled aluminum. I use the yellow one for both lemons and limes (since I don't eat oranges and they don't make 'em big enough for grapefruits).

well, that looks kinda cool.    guess the juice squeezes over the top of the lemon half and back down the outside of it, thru the holes and into .......... whatever.

It sort of turns the lemon half inside out (actually that's true more for limes), and is a great way to get the juice out. It also gets some of the lemon peel oil, so it's important to wash your lemons.

My poor Eye; actually eyelid. Yesterday it was itchy - today its bright red and swollen. Itch, itch, itch. Took a 303 (valerian) to calm me.
As a kid we ate probably 90% avoids and I had boils, stys and allergies; then in my teen til 40 Acne. Wonder if this might be a cleanse of sorts. Been taking ( 3 days) the AM Lemon and Salt water which is supposed to draw toxins out of the organs (and tissues I guess). Poor me! The swelling is going down. O yea my ears have been popping - so maybe this is a good thing. (the stuff we tell ourselves to feel better)
----------
This is on the side that has always had the worse sinus pain.
Anyone get a cleanse reaction to the salt? I'm not discouraged, just interested in your thoughts. Actually I feel pretty good.

Interesting, purlgirl.  I'd have thought you'd accidentally ingested an avoid with a reaction like that.  I had adult acne too (boils, actually, not just little bumps), till I got potatoes and peppers out of my diet.  I tried all sorts of things conventional and alternative and nothing worked till I got on the BTD.  I love it.  My skin looks great (comparatively) unless I somehow contact a nightshade (other than tomatoes, which don't bother me)---even if I touch a pepper or inhale them cooking my skin will break out in aweful boils for about 2 months.

Not to change the subject, though.......It's interesting that salt makes that much of a difference in elimination.  Does anybody happen to know if this cleansing process would be considered gentle enough to do while pregnant?  I know the lemon juice would be fine, but what about enough salt to send you to the potty quickly?  Any thoughts on that?

I have one of those lemon/lime squeezers too.  Got mine from Pampered Chef and I love it.  It makes juicing fast and easy and I don't have to pick the seeds out of the juice like I had to when I was using the regular kind that you have to "grind" by hand.  It makes salad dressing fast and easy to throw together too.  Lime juice and olive oil.  What could be better?

I have followed the exact imstructions as outlined in ER and LR by using half of a squeezed lemon in warm water.  I do not add sea salt to my morning drink.  This warm lemon water drink clears the mucus and revs up my digestive system every morning.

I have never used bottled lemon juice.

I've used both warm water and lemon, and warm water, lemon, and salt. I prefer the salty lemon water, taste wise, but haven't noticed that much difference in elimination between the two.

I have noticed that adding the ghee to my morning routine, seems to be helping w/ things working properly.
I also found one of those juicers like the one Drea posted, 'cept it's not lemon colored.     Don't think I'll be using bottled lemon juice anymore. Fresh lemon tastes SO MUCH bette.

I'm not sure of the lasting qualities of this, but I used to buy a whole bag of lemons and squeeze them all at once and put them into a bottle so that I could have lemon-on-the-road back when I was drinking most of my water with lemon and salt. I stopped doing that because it was really not good for my teeth.

I guess you could squeeze and freeze the lemon juice to make it last longer; sometimes in the summer, the lemons would get moldy before I could use them all, and keeping them in the refrigerator kept them around a bit longer.

Try a good quality gray sea salt as it adds vital minerals and nutrients to your water, thus into your cells.

Bold wording above is mine
Very important. FWIU, this is the dif between drinking reg water and a good salt water. The reg water does not get into the cell, where the salt water does. Do I have this right guys and gals?

Interesting about some people liking the saltiness and some not.  I seem to remember a poll a few months ago on the subject of salt and certain BTs liked their food salty (As maybe?) and others (B if I remember) did not.

Oh wow Drea...this is the gadget my girlfriend introduced me to and it is amazing.  And yes...it does turn the lemon/lime inside out.  

Isa...glad to hear you are losing the water retentions.
