I thought this information was worth sharing..It's about the health benefits of
drinking lemon juice in warm water. I've started doing this every morning.
Anyone do this regularly?

Some people add a pinch of salt.  Does anyone know what the salt is for?

Yes and I just had a dental checkup after almost 2 years of not having my teeth cleaned.
The hygeinist  commented on how great my gums and teeth where.

I can't do warm water and lemon in the morning, it doesn't work with my schedule.  But every night when I sit down to watch my show before bed I love my lemon and warm water.  The salt is to help retain water if your dehydrated.  
A couple of years ago I had a bad cold and drank a pot full of lemon and hot water two nights in a row!! I didn't have mucus issues for a month!! I totally dried out my system, that was a little overboard

Why warm water? I always have lemon in my plain water that is usually at room temp. when I'm at a restaurant, just tastes better.

Well, I guess the temperature isn't all that important..
but to drink it first thing in the morning I just like the water to be warm or hot. I'm not someone who likes to start my
day with cold liquids.  Might just be preference. I don't like
ice in any beverages...don't like cold food right out of
the refrigerator...so I said "hot water" because that's
what I've been doing.

This article says to use purified water and organic lemons, samy..
I don't think restaurants are going to offer that.

No, restaurants aren't going to offer that I'm sure, but, it's still better than just plain water. I agree with the cold liquids, I only drink cold things when the temp goes above 90 and I'm working outside.

Although it's neutral to drink lemon juice and water for other blood types, for type A,
it's beneficial!

And see, Dr. D says it helps to produce a bowel movement which is what I've found
works really well when I use the lemon juice mixed with hot water!

My brain just remembered why I drink it HOT!

My dentist asked me not to drink lemon juice regularly. He said it would erode tooth enamel. He said that he sees lots of people with eroded tooth enamel and most of them - when asked - regulary drink lemon juice diluted with water.

use a straw!


the salt helps hydrate, much like electrolytes or gatorade without the avoids!

Well, that's interesting curious...I'll have to ask my dentist if he sees this.

I'm just following Dr. D's health recommendations for a type A... and brushing my teeth  after I drink the lemon water.   So far, no enamel eroding.  Wonder if drinking lemon water through a straw would keep  the water from making a direct contact with the teeth.

I just tried it....the water sort of gets "shot" further back into the mouth and
kind of bypasses the front teeth.  That's one solution.

BTW, I drink more water in general when I drink it through a straw...I just like the
sipping sensation rather than tilting my head back to drink out of a glass..

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.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Chloe,
I have heard that you should wait awhile after drinking lemon water before brushing your teeth, though i'm not sure how long.  I think it has something to do with eroding the tooth enamel too.

OK, thanks for the suggestion.... Always more to learn and consider.

I use baking soda and salt mixed with water to brush my teeth, so I'd suspect the alkalizing effect of the tooth brushing would cancel out the acidity of the lemon
juice.  Does this make sense to anyone?

I heard on the health news that you should wait an hour after eating anything  before brushing your teeth. Acids are in most foods that soften the enamel.

Wahh, I can't vote in your poll- and I love to vote in polls!

You only gave options for "I do it regularly" and "never tried it." Where are the other options?

I've had it in the past, but it's not something I make a habit of. I got stomachaches from doing it first thing in the morning- I do better with a caffeinated beverage that has some calories in it.

But I do drink water with lemon juice once in a while when I'm in the mood for it.

I drink roomtemperature in the morning and evening but I mix in some papaya poweder for a flat tummy. Cause the lemon balances the mushroomy taste of the papaya powder. Have not noticed any bad side effects on m teeth or stomach.

I guess the other options would be something like "I tried it but it doesn't work"
Or "I tried it and it sometimes works"
Or "I don't make a habit of it but I have tried it"
Or "It gives me stomachaches"
Pick any one of those or all of those ruthiegirl....

Yes I do it too.

I start my day by going back to bed with about 2 cups of warm water and lemon juice. Not much just half a lemon or sometimes just a few drops. Sometimes even no lemon juice.  And sipping it while reading something great.

Important to do this in the morning after all that detoxing going in the night.

I heard that its the warm water and particularly water that has been boiled for some time and then cooled down. The boiling ionises the water and this hydrates the body better meaning  out go the toxins and in go the nutrients more efficiently.

I don't boil my water as I have a filtering/optimizing  system that ionises my water.

Ayurvedic medecine recommends sipping warm water all through the day. The rest I read about somewhere but don't remember where.

Dr. D did recommend  being careful about your teeth with the lemon and water over the long term.

Lola, usually says to drink it with a straw so it doesn't touch  your teeth.

I add lemon juice to my green tea made with distilled water, so I guess it's a double whammy since this also helps you get all of the vitamins out of the tea. Normally your body can only take so much of the vitamins out of green tea, I forget exactly what it is, but I read that when you drink just green tea alone then your body is limited to about 20% absorption of said vitamin. But when you add the lemon then you can absorb much more of the nutrients from the tea, I believe it's the ascorbic acid which increases your body's absorption. I read an article about it on Yahoo Health a few weeks back but can't find it right now.

I do exactly the same thing too! Always slowly drink 2 glasses of warm water after waking up. Then I wait around 30 minutes until I eat my breakfast. I seldom put lemon juice in it though, if I haven't had BM the day before, then my warm water would have half a glass of prune juice in it

The poll should have more options:

3 - I used to but the acid was eating away my teeth.  Green tea with lemon was even worse for causing teeth sensitivity.

Now I have lemon in water, at room temp with filtered water.  Drink it through a straw inserted up the back of the mouth.

I don't have green tea on an empty stomach anymore as I got acid reflux from doing that!  Not dared to try lemon and water on empty stomach yet either. Warm Chamomile tea every morning for me before breakfast now.

I started that when I was pregnant because I used to blow up like a balloon everyday.  It kept me from going toxic.  I have drank it pretty much every morning since.

A glass of warm water with the juice of about half a lemon, first thing in the morning for me.  Sometimes I have it after my morning walk, which means I will be drinking lots of water before the lemon drink.  I love it!!

I've only been doing this 10 days and find that when I drink the lemon with hot water my teeth feel chalky if that makes sense. I am using half a lemon so think I'll reduce it to a few drops or cut it out.

I use 1/2 lemon per liter of water.  Most always the water I drink contains lemon and is rarely ever cold unless it's something I can't control i.e. a quick purchase at a convenience store while out and about.  That's rare though as I usually have room temp water with me.  My body likes it that way.

Instead of the PM, I thought I'd share this info here as others may be interested too.  

Teeth can heal naturally as do bones, tissue cuts, etc.  The body is constantly attempting to "heal" itself.  How much healing from a tooth you can expect is determined by the extent of the existing damage and what you're willing to do to allow it to heal.

Oil-pulling would be my first plan of action.  The mouth is a breeding ground for 500 different types of bacteria.  Daily oil-pulling helps the body to rid itself of toxic waste without disturbing beneficial microflora.  

Secondly, get rid of all glycerin toothpaste and mouthwash products.  You really need to give the tooth a chance to remineralize and glycerin prevents them from absorbing necessary minerals for healing. I cannot stress this enough.  

Doing the first step but refusing to give up your delicious foamy toothpaste will likely return numerous other health benefits but I seriously doubt you'll get to the point of healing any tooth decay or cavities.  The second part of the equation is what really allows the teeth to heal.

Also, flossing daily in addition to brushing your teeth twice a day will prevent the build up of destructive bacteria.  Remember the mouth is a gateway for the blood stream.  There is a strong correlation between gum disease and coronary heart disease issues heart attacks and strokes.

Apparently there's a book titled "healing tooth decay" that's available for purchase, or your local library may have a copy. I've never read it.  I also found this link online which outlines one protocol for healing teeth: http://www.yourreturn.org/Articles/ec_new.htm

From your link Ruthie:

    For teeth to remineralize, the surface of the tooth needs to be clean. Any toothpaste which is pasty contains glycerin. The glycerin takes about 27 washes with water to remove from the tooth’s surface. There are many alternative products such as tooth liquids, tooth powders, sea salt and baking soda, and herbs to clean and treat teeth.

---
I can't overemphasize the importance of eliminating glycerin based products for your mouth.

be careful on letting lemon juice sit on you teeth it can eat your enamel. It's not really good to suck on a lemon through you teeth. Like many kids like to do.

There is a product that we have been using called Oram Plus. It is expensive, but lasts quite a while and kills the bacteria in the mouth. It is an oil and leaks down between the gums and teeth. At one time my hubby's teeth were loose and his gums were bleeding, and he started to use the Oram Plus- within two to three days those symptoms were gone.

It does have various oils, peppermint and others, so there might be compliance issues.

Thank you all for the information on tooth health and glycerin as it relates to water.  All I was interested in before, was how hot my water could be before it destroyed the vitamin C in my lime juice! I gotta have my lime water first thing in the morning like other people who aren't conversation worthy until they've had their coffee. I throw a knife, limes, and a thermal cup in my suitcase when I travel and use hot water from the coffee makers to get my fix when I'm traveling. I've been drinking it for years

Turns out that the bowlful of papaya and pineapple I eat 15 minutes afterwards probably has a whole lot more C than I could get from diluted lime juice.  I am allergic to lemons, but limes are great...only problem is that the price is going up. Too many freezing temperatures in citrus growing regions last winter, I think.

Some people add a pinch of salt.  Does anyone know what the salt is for?

It's to cut the sugar as well as somewhat balance the acidity. Be sure to brush your teeth after drinking your lemon tea for lemon can slowly erode your teeth.

actually, I since learnt that rather than brushing your teeth immediately after drinking lemon water, rinse your mouth throughly and wait a few minutes before brushing or eating again.  The enamel in the teeth is most vulnerable to brushing and acid from foods after drinking lemon water ...  That is my strategy now anyway ...

Cajun, I've looked high and low and have yet to find a toothpaste without glycerine.  I just use a powder which contains, sea salt, baking soda, prickly ash bark and peppermint powder.

If you do find a paste without glycerin, please update.  

Glad to hear you're giving the pulling a chance.  Just be gentle and don't overdo it.  I've not had any problems, only benefits.

Also, cajun - I use warm salt water to rinse with after oil-pulling.  I love the squeaky clean feeling.  I alternate between drinking either room temp lemon or ginger water, also, which helps with sinus issues and digestive upsets.

Periopaste does not contain Glycerin, but may contain other things that you may want to avoid.

Actually, according to this ingredients list, it sadly does:

PerioPaste™
Ingredients: Phytoplenolin® (Centipeda Cunninghamii Extract), Bio-Chelated® Extracts of Echniacea Purpurea Tops (Echinacea Purpurea), Calendula Flower (Calendula Officinalis), Olive Leaf (Olea Europaea), Black Walnut Green Hulls (Juglans Nigra), Gotu Kola Herb (Centella Asiatica), Chamomile Flower (Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria)), Green Tea Leaf (Camellia Sinensis), Prickly Ash Bark (Zanthoxylum Americanum) and Grapefruit Seed (Citrus Grandis), Essential Oils of Peppermint (Mentha Piperita), Oregano (Origanum Vulgare), Clove (Eugenia Caryophyllus), Thyme (Thymus Vulgaris), Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia), Cinnamon (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum) and Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus Globulus), Bio-SaponinTM (Saponins), Folic Acid, Coenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone), Aloe Vera PhytogelTM (Aloe Barbadensis), Sodium Bicarbonate, Colloidal Silica, Lysine, Xylitol, Xantham Gum and Chlorophyll.

Base Ingredients: Calcium Carbonate, Vegetable Glycerin, U.S.P. Purified Water.
from: http://www.greenplanetcompany.net/periopaste.html

I was initially very excited about this discovery when I read the minimal ingredients they (Bio-Pro) list at their website until I investigated further.  Glycerin is always used as a base ingredient or so I've discovered thus far.

I make my own. One part baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), 1 part kosher salt,  and a few drops spearmint oil. I put these into an empty baby food jar and shake it up really well before using the first time. Then I just dip my damp toothbrush into it and brush.

I have no problem with BM's and drink my room temp lemon water, almost daily.  I do drink fresh ginger tea every morning with my breakfast which is hot but outside of that I'm not a fan of the extremes whether hot or cold.  I never drink cold beverages unless I have to purchase a bottle of water when I'm away from home and the only ones available are refrigerated.

I've tried to drink it...I'm allergic to citrus and it causes burning in my stomach..  
I'm with you MF... I tried but it just didn't like me... I even burp lemon for hours if I clean with lemon oil or take a fish oil capsule that has lemon added to it...

I drink hot and warm water by itself, home carbonated filter water with a squirt of lemon or lime juice.  Lime is very refreshing and is energising.  Lemon seems more of a digestive aid.  I recommend people trying to give up beer and soft drink use these as a replacement if they are applicable to their diets.

I have been drinking lemon water each morning for months to help with mucous but prefer cool/cold water. I add fresh lemon to my iced sun tea and hot teas also.

I've been drinking it every morning without fail and I've noticed the difference. I produce quite a bit of mucus, and used to wake up nauseous almost every morning from having that on my stomach. Since I started with the lemon juice that's pretty much gone away, I've also noticed my appetite has increased since I started doing that. (Good thing for me because usually I'm never hungry)

Haven't really tried it cold, I just like how it tastes when it's warm or hot. I use a pure lemon juice most of the time but when I get the chance I like to squeeze fresh lemon wedges into the water, it's really good that way too.

I heard on the health news that you should wait an hour after eating anything  before brushing your teeth. Acids are in most foods that soften the enamel.


Well, this doesn't make sense.  If it's the acids in foods that errode the enamel, it makes sense to get it off your teeth as soon as possible.

I have started the oil pulling so am excited to hopefully find clearer sinuses and whiter teeth. Does anyone know a brand of "toothpaste" or tooth cleaner without glycerine?


I've been using tooth soap for years.  Made from several oils.  It take a little time to get used to the taste but my teeth feel so much cleaner with the tooth soap.  I originally bought the tooth soap from a company that sells Perfet Prescription tooth soap but it was way to pricy.  I found another seller online who sells little blocks of the "dental soap" for much less.

Does it make a difference if you use bottled lemon juice or fresh lemons?.  I have a bottle of organic lemon juice which would be much more convenient.

Thanks!

As with anything pre-made, look at the ingredients...  I would guess that there is a preservative in the bottled...  If not or it is a compliant one, then it is great to use...  

When traveling, I have even used the Real-lemon juice as that is what I could find, but would rather not use that on a regular basis...

Drink the lemon juice through a straw, but I prefer to rinse my mouth straight away after drinking it (straw or not) and wait a few  minutes before eating anything else.  This will give my teeth a chance to re=coat themselves with normal mouth protective PH balanced fluids ...

Brushing straight after exposing enamel to the lemon acid it will be like scoring fresh paint ... a bit exaggerated may be, but illustrates the point ...

I drink it every day.  I also put it in my drinking water on a regular basis.  Not always.  But my first beverage of the day is a cold glass of water, followed up by a warm cup of lemon water to sip.  Mmmmmmmm...

Maybe because Dr. D'Adamo recommends lemon water in the morning for A's, in ER4YT and elsewhere, to cut back mucus, for instance.

Another A who has it every morning - just juice of half a lemon at room temperature. I haven't noticed it making any difference to mucus though yet, and I have been doing it for a year or two now, with short break a few months back.

My dentist asked me not to drink lemon juice regularly. He said it would erode tooth enamel. He said that he sees lots of people with eroded tooth enamel and most of them - when asked - regulary drink lemon juice diluted with water.


I read on the celiac page that gluten intolerance can cause tooth enamel issues.

I don't believe that your dentist was telling the truth. If more people were drinking lemon water less people would have teeth problems. Once lemon mixes with your saliva it turns alkaline... not acid. When I drink lemon water I don't have teeth problems. It's when I forget to drink it that I have problems.

Also, as Lola stated before... "use a straw". Just by pass your teeth if you are worried.

As for dental health... I have been reading the book "Heal You Teeth Naturally" and one thing is mentions is to gets the nutrient rich foods that your body is lacking. For each one of us that means compliantly follow your blood type. Using ghee from unpasteurized butter called "Butter Oil" from a company called Green Pasture, is the only place I've found it. What you are needing from the butter oil is vitamin K. Specifically vitamin K2 of the MK-4 form. This is nearly impossible to find. I've searched for the right amount of vitamin K2 for quite awhile and finally found someone that sells it and I am ordering it wholesale to sell in my health store.

Vitamin K drives the calcium and other minerals into the bones and teeth where it belongs.

I was told by my dentist that I would have to have a root canal and that all my dental work would cost me every last penny I had in savings plus some. So I started to search for a natural way to heal my teeth. I finally have and they are remineralizing.

A little off topic but Christa I wanted to ask you if butter oil is different from ghee that comes from
pasture fed cows.

I use this  http://www.pureindianfoods.com/

Is it considered butter oil?

I have periods when I do lemon and water every morning before breakfast.  I find it kick starts my system as well as it is a great alkalizer before beginning the day.  Since I homeschool my boys, we all do lemon and water at the same time.  Haven't done that routine since before Christmas though.  I guess it's about that time again

Good for you. That's great to hear. NEVER listen to dentists. They have wronged the population on so many levels. From fluoride to mercury, among the most toxic substances to the human body. Many will tell you that you need "dental work" just because they are interested in the contents of your wallet.

And, yes, they get paid 'very' handsomely.

Good luck with your teeth.

I drink it when the mood strikes me- sometimes lemon juice in cold water, sometimes grapefruit juice in cold water, sometimes lemon (and/or grapefruit) in green tea or rooibos tea. Lemon in water isn't specifically part of my routine though.

I drink it every morning on an empty stomach.  I got started on it 5 years ago when I was having gallbladder/liver problems and I have kept it up ever since.  I use the juice of 1 lemon in 16 oz. of hot water.  It works well with my system.

that has more to do with all that excessive sugar content in those carbonated drinks, plus the flavors, the additives and the junk......and if that were not enough, those drinks leach out essential calcium from bones, including teeth.......horrible!

Hi all,  

Short of reading every post in this thread, how does the temperature of the water effect the drink?  I saw a few post about putting it in tea, does it have the same effect or does it have to be warm water only?  

I tried for a few days putting it into warm water but it was just not enjoyable for me.  Hot or cold is the way I would like to drink it.

If you add a (generous) pinch of sea salt to the warm/hot lemon water, it cuts the acid and tastes good (to me).

If you add a (generous) pinch of sea salt to the warm/hot lemon water, it cuts the acid and tastes good (to me).

I've tried it many times over the years because I've heard many times how good it is supposed to be. Every time I try, I end up constipated...lol....nothing gets things moving like a cup of coffee first thing in the morning!

Not hot water, but from the tap, which here is not very cold, nor very warm. I started it because it was suggested on this site, and I must say I feel good doing it. I have my own lemon tree in the yard, so the first thing in the morning I go out pick one and put it in my water.

Yes - every morning and I love it! It gets my bowels moving (sorry to be graphic) and gets my sinuses to give up the goods as well. So I start the day emptied and refreshed

I can't do straight lemon and water or it hurts my stomach.  I do add some fresh lemon juice to my smoothie every morning though.  Gives it a nice zing!

You need this as a choice in your poll:

"I've tried and I HATE it!"

That would be me.  I HATE water with lemon at any temperature.  I don't like it by itself.  I don't like it with honey.  I don't like it with salt.  I do NOT like it, Sam I Am!

blech....just thinking about it makes me shudder......  


hahah That's exactly how I feel about wheat grass! I CANT STAND it. YUCK. Just smelling it makes me gag.

I agree with chrissyA.  Dr. D. instructed A's to drink it every morning mixed with warm water.  That's how I drink mine.

Would someone please share with me how to copy from another post and make it show up framed like a lot of you do?

See where it says "quote" or "report to moderator"? Hit "quote" and it brings that text to the box you're going to type in.  Start typing right under the words that have been copied.

If you only want a portion of the other person's quote to appear in your post, notice when you
hit quote that there is going to be the word {quote} and it's going to appear at the beginning
and at the end of someone's quote.  Make sure those two quote words stay within the text...and

You should put new text outside the quote tags...  It isn't part of the quote...  Your first example was more correct in this regard...

I do something similar, I add baking soda (instead of salt) to buffer the acid. To a glass with juice of 1/2 lemon, add 1/4 tsp. baking soda and wait until it stops fizzing then add 4 to 6 oz. of water. (For a whole lemon you can add 1/2 tsp. baking soda.) I had the burning stomach from lemon juice until I learned to buffer it with baking soda. I do this with cranberry juice also.

Mucus can be caused by many things. If you're still eating avoids, that can cause mucus. If you've recently cleaned up your diet, you may have lingering mucus from your prior bad diet. Mucus can also be from seasonal allergies or viruses/colds.

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 just drink it in room temperature water as I don't see a difference when I use hot water and I'd rather not have to take the extra time to heat up the water before drinking it. It seems to have the same effect either way.

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.

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.
