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.


I did buy one and it does work pretty well, but there is still some waste. I just get what more I can out of it then put the rest down the garbage disposal. All nice and lemony fresh then.  Thanks again to Drea for posting that. I do really like it. Makes quick work of having fresh lemon juice in the morning

I find that the squeezer works better for limes than lemons, as far as getting all the juice out. I think it's because limes typically have thinner skins. One thing to try is roll your lemons on a hard surface with the palm of your hand to loosen up the juice pockets before slicing and squeezing.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

I think you're right on the limes having thinner skins. Will look for 'skinny' lemons next time .          Also , I did roll them but still the 'prob' with too much left, but like I said, I'll get it outta there somehow

From my experience, smaller, rounder organic lemons have thin skins.

yup, I have that same squeezer and it takes a bit of elbow grease with my homegrown lemons, but all in all I like its handiness.
Also, you'd think a huge meyer lemon tree would be handy, but actually it puts out millions of lemons but they all ripen at once and begin pelting you!

Could you squeeze tons of lemons and freeze the juice in ice cube trays?

Okay, so I tried the lemon juice and salt in water this morning.  Nothing was any different from normal.  If anything, it was much later (as in, hours) when I was finally able to produce anything.  Is this something that will take a few days for my body to adjust to?  I used to do the lemon water in the mornings but could never tell any difference, so I stopped.  I was inspired to begin again (and add salt) after reading this thread.

well Ribbit, to be truthful, for me, I don't think it's the lemon/salt water, tho i'm not going to stop it. it's good for my adrenals (the salt).  I've added ghee to my regimen in the mornings. seems to be helping some.

I have a lemon tree, and I freeze the juice in zip-loc bags.  I gave each of my siblings a bag of twelve 1 cup bags of lemon juice for Christmas.  I hope they use it.

Italy, sea salt is good for your adrenals?  I have long thought I had adrenal issues (mainly from past chronic stress and because 1 c. of coffee makes me feel actually normal).  Yesterday when I drank the salt water in the morning I felt amazing all day and I couldn't figure out why.  (I've been eating a whole lot of neutrals because it's what we all have in common and I'm too tired to make 3 different BT meals 3 times a day.)  It didn't even occur to me to take a nap and I slept really well last night.  I forgot to drink it today and felt kind of bad.  I eat a lot of salt on my food, so why does that salt in the a.m. make that much difference?  Because it's got all the minerals and because it's on an empty stomach?

This is a list of symptoms and this next one is the whole article. If you think you have adrenal issues, please read it. If you have a color printer, I'd print it off in color and go somewhere quiet to read it. It is a long article, but well worth reading

You know, I have read that article before and forgot about it.  I used to go to his site a lot but stopped when I went on the BTD.  Thanks for the reminder.  I'll go read it again...if it's possible for me to find a quiet place to read where I won't fall asleep first.....

Another step forward. I got the unrefined sea salt.
??? What if I mixed the Salt and boiling Water at night and put into a thermos - Then added fresh lemon in the am? I need it simple and also to be quiet in the am so I don't  wake DH. I like to drink it real early and go back to bed - isn't that what is recommended?

The  temperature graph on Dr Lam.com is really interesting. I got a new thermometer; I'm fluctuating between  95 & 97 degrees.  Havent actually been doing the graft though.

Began reading the Adrenal Fatigue , The 21st Century Stress Syndrome
There is a Iris Contraction Test  p78.  My right eye stays dilated. Wonder does that mean only one adrenal gland is in trouble? (my Dr just said its nerve damage. It was no big deal to him.  )
This link between the Pupil and adrenal problems has been known at least back to 1924.

Italy I don't think I thanked you for shareing so much with us. I feel really encouraged. thanks!

i'm just curious why you want to use boiling water unless you have to boil your water for sanitary purposes? Other than that, I'd think that would be ok.  I think it is just recommended that you drink the salt water in the mornings, but sleep until 8:30 or 9 if possible. That means being asleep the whole time. If you get up to have the lemon/salt water, you're interrupting your sleep. Something you dont want to do. It is said the hours between 7 and 9 AM are the most important to adrenal healing. Of course if you get up earlier than 6 AM normally, you'd want to adjust that time.

I dont know if only one pupil staying dialated means only one adrenal gland is affected or not. Please dont let that lull you into a false 'security' that they need attn if you have alot of the symptoms. Have you done the blood pressure test?


well it doesnt surprise me your dr thought nothing more of your eye contraction. they're all about doling out the drugs.    do you have a link to that info between the eye contraction and adrenals back to 1924? Would love to read it.

And you're quite welcome for the info. I want to post some other stuff for supps, but am not quite sure what to make of all of it myself. So will not do that right now. I was looking at the suggestions between Dr Lam and Dr Wilson.

Hi italybound,

Thank you for the salt, lemon juice & warm water drink suggestion for the first drink in the AM.  Have been doing it with Celtic Sea Salt, etc. for the last 5 days and am quite pleased with the results. The taste is pleasant.

Initially the results were quite dramatic but those results have slowed down. Cleaned out now???
Maybe trying the TAB. of Ghee in the AM would make a difference. O Goody, another experiment.
Thanks again.

Margaret

Italy sorry it took me so long to answer, busy with company - then I couldn't find the thread.

I guess I got the idea the water was supposed to be boiled fresh ( as in making tea) from reading the other salt cleanse page. http://www.LifeEvent.org "One Week Salt Water Cleanse"

So in your opinion water hot enough to disolve the salt is all thats intended - doesn't matter if it has been sitting in a thermos. One thing I do know about boiling water is that you can boil it to long according to some experts on tea making.

The drink it and go back to bed was also from the one week cleanse. I wake up a lot so I just figured it was a good idea to have the drink earily and allow plenty of time to enjoy the results at home as opposed to out and about.

The information on eyes is in Ch 10 (pg 77) of the Adrenal Fatigue book just befor the blood pressure test. No I havn't done the BP test; don't think we have a tester.
I havn't got very far with the book yet.

--------
Ps- Wish this book and related subjects was was on audio - I  learn better by listening or a combo of see/hear. Have you come across any audio presentations?
I'm sure it's too much to hope for.

purlgirl, IMHO, even room temp water is fine for the lemon/salt water. That's what I use.  
I do agree about water boiled too long not good for green teas.  
If you're comfortable w/ getting up, drinking it, then going back to bed, I guess you can, bring IMHO, it would be better just to sleep thru until you're actually ready to get up, then have your s/l water.  
Havent run across this info from Dr Lam or A/F book on audio, but that's not to say it's not out there. Have you googled for it?

Italy I went to smart-publications.com  that publishes the AF book - no audio or video.  I'll just keep plotting along. I Love some of the illustrations.

Was http://www.mdheal.org  (on leaky gut syndrom) one of your finds? A difficult read (I don't pretend to understand it all) but worth reading. A lot of intestional problems in my family.

Did you mention how long you have been dealing w the AF issue?

purlgirl,

A simple way to get hear the book is to read it aloud...  This is recommended to get the most from any reading, since you see and hear it at the same time, so you experience it using two receptors...

Wishing you the best...

I was just diagnosed in Nov 2006 but knowing how it all starts, I'd say it started as a child. Lived in a very abusive home.  
Will look at the mdheal site, as I'm sure LGS is prob something I have as well....... double

I've been on the L-S-W regime for a week now. From the responses I read, I was expecting the earth to move under my feet I dont know whether my responses are strange, but I notice that I dont pee that much soon after the above + a glass of luke warm water. It feels like all of the water has been blotted away...and none remaining for flushing the kidneys. So I upped the water to the regular 450ml which I normally drink first thing in the morning. Still nothing with regards to the pee. I continue to drink my usual quota of 3 litres for the rest of the day, and the pee is OK. But nothing earth shattering in the poo department. I also dont feel the alertness that one is supposed to feel. Just normal. Could it be coz the adrenals are doing just fine, and there's not much junk in the system?

I dont suffer from constipation, but I don't seem to have any feeling of wanting to "go" either. When it happens, the stools arent hard or anything. Maybe I dont have much to eliminate...

I am continuing with this, twice a day though. Let's see what happens in a month or so...

I've recently started taking 250 mg of magnesium (along with my Addrenal Assist) right before bed. Between that, and the LSW, my morning elimination has been good. It used to be that Polyflora was doing the trick...but no longer.
