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’m late to the party, but I drink warm lemon water every morning right after I get up.

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.
