Start Your Day With Warm Lemon Water

You've almost certainly heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but did you know that starting your day with a glass of warm lemon water gives you multiple health benefits?

Lemon is rich in citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C and bioflavonoids, pectin and limonene, all of which strengthen the body’s defences and fight against infections. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning:

Helps Digestion

Lemon helps the liver produce bile and acid necessary for proper digestion. Its richness in vitamins and minerals allows it to eliminate toxins and waste from the gastrointestinal tract. Lemon is useful when it comes to relieving heartburn, abdominal distension and flatulence. Warm water with lemon is also excellent to stimulate the bowel first thing in the morning.

Depurative and diuretic

By increasing the amount of urine in the body, lemon juice helps eliminate waste and cleanse the urinary system. The elimination of toxins is accelerated with the consumption of warm water.

Boosts the immune system

The high vitamin C content in lemon juice helps to strengthen the immune system and fight infections. Vitamin C has effective anti-inflammatory effects in the treatment of respiratory diseases and promotes the absorption of iron into the body. The potassium in lemon also stimulates the nervous system and controls blood pressure.

A skin cleanser 

Because of its high content of vitamin C, lemon has traditionally been used to erase wrinkles and lighten spots. It destroys the bacteria responsible for acne. Consumed in the morning, lemon juice helps provide clear and radiant skin from the inside out.

How to prepare your warm lemon water:

  • Take a washed organic lemon and grate some of the zest (the skin)
  • Cut the lemon in half
  • Squeeze out the juice
  • Add both the zest and juice to a glass of warm water
  • Drink immediately on an empty stomach

Naturopathic Nutritional Medicine is an immensely powerful tool. It is consistent with and works well alongside modern biochemistry, which studies in detail the metabolism inside the cells. It looks at all the ways in which the nutrients interact with and support metabolic processes. Modern biochemistry makes it clear that the nutrients are all required together, not just as individual items. It addresses the balances between them and their actual availability inside the cells. It addresses the enzyme reactions that they support.

The joy of it all is that all this biochemical evidence is supportive of the working principles of the Naturopaths of the last few centuries, who have worked to support “The Life Force”. What is this “Life Force”? Insofar as it is a subtle force, as yet undetected by Science, it attracts the derision of the sceptics. But one can choose whether or not to regard this as a subtle force. If that does not fall within your belief system, then you can simply look at the energetic flux of chemical change within the cells and equate that with the Life Force.

The fact is that the healthy cell is characterised by an ebullient metabolism, a dynamic system of energetic processes fuelled by ATP (adenosine triphosphate, the “energy currency of the cell). The cell’s ability to manufacture and utilize ATP is determined by the integrity of its enzyme systems and its intracellular structures.

The whole strategy of Naturopathic Nutritional Medicine is aimed at normalizing and activating the cells’ own internal systems. If the cells, and therefore the body, are ailing and sluggish, it aims to return the cellular metabolism to normal, and so restore vitality and health. The orthodox nutritionist is seemingly fumbling and at a loss if asked to take any action towards restoring health. He knows not what to do. His training has certainly not informed him as to what to do unless it is a straightforward nutritional deficiency illness like scurvy or beri-beri. So, in most cases of ill health he or she is powerless.
