Quoted from Enobattar


From what I gathered in ER4YT, Dr. D. wanted A's to do it every morning to break up mucus that we tend to accumulate quite easily (especially when consuming wrong dairy or too much dairy.  Also, I came to learn that lemon juice helps thin A's thick blood.  I think that also came from Dr. D., but can't be certain.  I read so much.

I know Dr. D. brought out that O's have thin blood naturally.  I can't imagine that a daily regimen of lemon water for them would be advised.

I have been taking lemon water every day for well over a year now.  Hypertension, edema, enlarged heart and cirrhosis of the liver are my excuse as to why I need it - all from obesity.  Getting rid of the mucus and clearing up my repeat sinus infections was just a bonus.

Quoted from Drea
I go through phases with my morning lemon water. I just recently stopped it because the last three times I've taken it (warm, but not hot, water, the juice of one lemon, plus 1/2 tsp sea salt) it's made me nauseous. I like the sea salt because it helps to cut the tang.

I have some lemons that need to be used, so I'll try it again tomorrow.

I always swish my mouth out with fresh water after drinking the lemon water.


Dr. D states to take 1/2 a lemon, not a whole one.  I know that nauseous feeling after drinking it.  Sometimes it happens to me.   But it goes away in in a minute or so, prompts the morning BM, and brings up any excess mucus in my throat.  Perhaps if you cut back and only swallow your lemon juice in a small amount of warm water, say 4oz., this will help.

Also I am concerned about the teeth issue.  Sometimes I swish with water afterwards.  Sometimes I will use a straw.  But mostly I avoid brushing my teeth for at least 30 min. To prevent erosion of tooth enamel.  Even though I have had soft, bad teeth in the past, for the last few years I have not.  This I credit mostly to fuller compliance to my diet.

I have for the past 3 months - I also add tumeric and ginger.  I actually like it - nope, I'm not crazy.
Before reading ER4YT I mixed tumeric and ginger with vinegar (until I read that vinegar is an avoid)

used to do this, but now I prefer some mineral rich salt in water first thing in morning, as my glands need minerals first up.  I don't want fructose in mornings at this time as am avoiding fruit in mornings - fruits yin in energetic quality, citrus also not best for tooth enamel (a straw good idea as mentioned), and for some people citrus can have a tighening / constricting effect on liver.
an increase in green vegetables works better for me in terms of helping liver function plus herbal tea. and avoiding the foods which decrease liver function.

Does lime have the same effect as lemon?  
I have lemon or lime in seltzer, a diamond for me. Often I add trehalose powder.

The two fruit juices are not identical.  Lemon juice has a lectin in it that helps some people more than the lime juice without the lectin.
See Typebase entries for each to compare:
Lemon:  http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?222
Lime:   http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?230

They are both alkalizing foods, so in that regard they will both help.  They also both help to add a tart zing to foods.

At this point, 75% of those able/willing to respond  (#140) say they use this regularly, and 25% have never tried it.
I wonder how much larger your sample would be if you'd offered more options.  Quite a bit, I assume.

I have lime water almost every morning. Not hot. I guess I don't want to destroy the enzymes in it.   If I were a Secretor it would have the same anticancer effect as lemon, but it does not. And there's a distinct difference I feel in wellness afterwards when drinking an authentic jug of lemonade or lemon water vs. lime water.

For anyone who has forgotten why it's so good to begin their day with warm water (better than hot)  and lemon, I'm just adding some info as a reminder and bumping this thread ...as it's been dormant for so long.  It's
still the beginning of a new year....so thought it might be something people might want to add to their morning routine in case it's been forgotten.

The way you start each day is incredibly important.

According to Ayurvedic philosophy, choices that you make regarding your daily routine either build up resistance to disease or tear it down. Ayurveda invites us to get a jump-start on the day by focusing on morning rituals that work to align the body with nature's rhythms, balance the doshas and foster self-esteem alongside self-discipline.

Start the day out with a mug of warm water and the juice of half a lemon.

It's so simple and the benefits are just too good to ignore. Warm water with lemon:

1. Boosts your immune system

Lemons are high in Vitamin C and potassium. Vitamin C is great for fighting colds and potassium stimulates brain and nerve function and helps control blood pressure.

2. Balances pH

Lemons are an incredibly alkaline food, believe it or not. Yes, they are acidic on their own, but inside our bodies they're alkaline (the citric acid does not create acidity in the body once metabolized).
3. Helps with weight loss

Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. It also has been shown that people who maintain a more alkaline diet lose weight faster.

4. Aids digestion

The warm water serves to stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and peristalsis—the waves of muscle contractions within the intestinal walls that keep things moving. Lemons and limes are also high in minerals and vitamins and help loosen ama, or toxins, in the digestive tract.

5. Acts as a gentle, natural diuretic

Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials because lemons increase the rate of urination in the body. Toxins are, therefore, released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy.

6. Clears skin

The vitamin C helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes. Lemon water purges toxins from the blood which helps keep skin clear as well.

7. Hydrates the lymph system

This cup of goodness helps start the day on a hydrated note, which helps prevent dehydration (obviously) and adrenal fatigue. When your body is dehydrated, or deeply dehydrated (adrenal fatigue) it can't perform all of it's proper functions, which leads to toxic buildup, stress, constipation, and the list goes on. Your adrenals happen to be two small glands that sit on top of your kidneys, and along with your thyroid, create energy. They also secrete important hormones, including aldosterone. Aldosterone is a hormone secreted by your adrenals that regulates water levels and the concentration of minerals, like sodium, in your body, helping you stay hydrated. Your adrenals are also responsible for regulating your stress response. So, the bottom line is that you really don't want to mess with a deep state of dehydration!

Adopting just this one practice of drinking a cup of warm water with lemon in the morning for a month can radically alter your experience of the day. Don't be surprised if you begin to view mornings in a new light.

The recipe is really simple—a cup of warm (not hot) water and the juice from half a lemon.

Feel free to post how this makes you feel.

I have started this several times and not been able to stick with it due to the immense detox.  I recently start again, still went through a heavy detox, then started some Folic Acid supplementation recommended by my Dr. and detoxed some more.  Hopefully, the symptoms will level out and I can continue this successfully!

I tried this for a while and never felt right... Pretty sure now, the reason was because I am not good with any citrus (fruits and sprays)

AB Joe, what a testament to it's power! I hope you'll someday soon be in a healing state that you can tolerate it better.

I've done this without fail every morning since first reading ER4YT 4 years ago. It's grrrrrreat!

--Yes, I do it regularly
--No, I've never tried it


My guess is that there are plenty of people who've tried the lemon juice in hot water beverage but do not partake regularly, and there's nowhere for them to reply.
There's a whole spectrum of possible responses to the querent's curiosity, which spectrum is excluded from the all-or-nothing survey -- Too bad.

Yes, I do drink it sometimes, but not in hot water, I use room temp. water.   I should drink it more often because it tastes good and is good for digestion    I drink it if it's there!

If you have something you wish to share but the options for answering the survey aren't  applicable to you, just please share anyway for the sake of discussion... I have no way to charge wording or add new questions to a survey I started 5 years ago...

At this point, the subject really is whether you drink water with lemon first thing in the AM or not.
...Either you do, or you don't...if you don't tolerate it, might want to try it or have something you'd
like to share about your experience, join in.  Please don't feel left out because you can't answer the
survey due to the way I posed the questions...

The purpose of this thread is to remind everyone if they tolerate lemons that this is simply a good way to begin their day. If your water is cool, warm or hot, it's all fine.  Temperature of water isn't as important as
lemon AND water.

So, feel free to say whatever you  wish on this subject....Just a reminder because many people either don't
know about the benefits or have forgotten..

I never tried doing it daily for an extended amount of time. What is the best way to get the lemon juice for the most benefits?  I used to have an already made lemon juice bought from the store that I made it with and I would drink it early before going to work.  I never tried it with fresh lemon.

I buy a bag of lemons, use half of a lemon squirted into warm water  which I drink first thing..

My son found a short cut....he's rushing to get to work in the AM and does a lot of evening prep so his
morning goes smoothly.

He just squeezes his lemon into a pyrex glass dish, covers it,keeps it in the refrigerator, and next AM, just dumps the juice into warm water..

The problem with the bottled lemon juices is that they contain preservatives that could be irritating to
your body..I see no point in using a cleansing fruit combined with a toxic chemical preservative...Better
to buy fresh lemons and prep the night before if it would save you time.

warm lemon water helps balance the bodies acidic and alkaline levels. Drinking it first thing in the morning (or right after sleeping) by itself also helps to break up the body's mucus that has settled over night.

I copied and pasted this about lemons from typebase.  Notice where it speaks about frozen lemon juice and
pre-squeezed lemons losing nutrients..and how negatively it speaks about bottled lemon juice. (in red)



General Description: LEMON

Throughout the eons, lemons have been used for a multitude of nonculinary purposes - as an epilepsy remedy, a toothpaste, an invisible ink and a bleaching agent as well as in witchcraft. Though it originated in Southeast Asia, the lemon is now cultivated in tropical and temperate climates around the world, with California leading production in the United States. This bright yellow citrus fruit is oval in shape, with a pronounced bulge on the blossom end. The flesh is juicy and acidic. The lemon can range in size from that of a large egg to that of a small grapefruit. Some have thin skins while others have very thick rinds, which are used to make candied lemon peel. Lemons are available year-round with a peak during the summer months. Choose fruit with smooth, brightly colored skin with no tinge of green (which signals underripeness). Lemons should be firm, plump and heavy for their size. Depending on their condition when purchased, they can be refrigerated in a plastic bag for 2 to 3 weeks. The lemon has a multitude of culinary uses for dishes sweet to savory, as well as a flavoring in many drinks. Few foods add such flavor magic as the simple lemon. Bottled and frozen lemon juice are also available in most supermarkets.

The frozen juice is a passable substitute but the bottled product bears little resemblance to the real thing. Though the lemon is an excellent source of vitamin C (one provides 40 to 70 percent of the minimum daily requirement), it begins to lose its vitamin power soon after it's squeezed. There's a 20 percent loss of vitamin C after only 8 hours at room temperature or 24 hours in the refrigerator.

So right, Lola!!!
Anyone suffering from any sort of nasal mucus/sinus problems needs to try this!!!
I have been doing it for years; but I drink cool water. Then hot tea afterwards.
I use one lemon per day...1/2 squeezed into cool water in the morning, more into my 2 cups of tea and more into my cold suntea (acai berry tea bags in glass jar with purified water set outside in sun) that I sip throughout the day.

Chloe, thanks for the info.
Nothing beats fresh lemons. I know how fortunate we are here in sunny SoCal to have access year round. It also helps that my mom has a wonderful Meyer Lemon tree in her back yard which is down the hill. (close to Orange County and it produces year round)
