Okay, I’ve been sold on the benefits of drinking loads of water. What I didnt understand was the benefits of making the water warmish and adding raw lemons to the water. Apparently it neutralizes the PH in your liver and causes a serious detox. It works best with warm water, and you need to keep it coming to clear up your skin and flush the fat. it’s now become the biggest secret of my recent weight loss. That and really trying to eat whole foods and keep the carbs down to a dull roar. Let me know if you have any secrets.
Why the lemon works so well
On page 19 of A.F. Beddoe’s book “Biological Ionization in Human Nutrition,” he states that: “Man does not live off the food he eats but off of the energy that is produced from the food he eats.”
The energy you get from your food comes from the atoms and molecules of energy in your food. A reaction takes place as cationic food enters the digestive tract and encounters anionic digestive enzymes.
To explain further, an ion is part of a molecule con-atom or a group of atoms that carry an electrical charge. Ions which carry positive charges are “cations.” Lemons are considered to be anionic, having more electrons (negatively charged ions) of energy as compared to cations (positively charged ions) in their atomic structure. Saliva, hydrochloric acid, bile and the stomach’s other digestive juices are also anionic.
Lemon is one of the only foods on the planet that has more anions than cations in its atomic structure.
When considering the electromagnetic properties of food Dr. Beddoe points out that all foods are considered cationic with the exception of fresh, raw lemon juice. Some have suggested that the reason fresh lemon juice is similar to digestive enzymes is due to the low amount of sulfur in lemons. It should be noted that pasteurized and packaged lemon juice is cationic and, therefore, ineffective as a health remedy.
