Lemon Water

Does anyone drink lemon water daily? I was just reading how it cleanses the body, helps with acne, helps you lose weight, etc. I am more interested in the cleansing and wondering what others thoughts are who drink this daily. I know it's bad for the teeth, so if you do try this I have read that you should use a straw and rinse your mouth with water after drinking.

Wish I could drink lemon water! One of my bizarre symptoms is a burning tongue/mouth/throat and citrus ... feels like barbed wire going down. :unsure: (hopefully it will resolve as I heal.)

I, too, have read that lemon water is a cleanse for the liver... BUT also erodes teeth enamel. Since my enamel has also been impacted by this, I am guessing I'll be steering clear of lemon...man, too bad!! I love lemonade...sigh....

If you do try it, I'd be curious to hear if you feel it has helped!

I tried it once for a couple of days as I like lemonade. I just put fresh lemon in water with a bit of sugar. For me it caused a great deal of discomfort. I have no idea why maybe just too much acid for my system.

I hope your not talking about the lemon water detox with cayenne pepper and maple syrup. If you are thinking about doing that do a search on lemon water detox dangers, I think you'll change your mind.

A better way to cleanse your system is to eat fresh fruits and veggies, drink lots of water and drop processed foods.

I did this when we lived in NY and lemons were cheap. It did make me feel better.

No, I am not talking about the water detox. Just starting the day off with a glass of lemon water. I am still eating food. Just heard it's good for the body - acne, organs, etc. My daughter is trying it for her acne and we know to rinse our mouth to help protect our enamel. I will update later on how it's working.

I can't see where that would hurt anything and it will give you a bit of extra vit C. Let us know how it goes.

The lemon juice that I know about is: one tall glass filtered water, juice from 1/2 lemon, lime or key lime, 1 tsp or more honey and salt to taste.

This drink of one of those old home remedies for many things from colds to constipation. I drink this periodically, as does some of my family. It's not something one has to drink every day, I only use it when I feel like I'm not able to digest food properly or I'm coming down with a cold, etc. And of course, it's only helpful if the ingredients suit the person drinking it. My Mother swears by it, Dad can't have the sugar in it, my sister finds it too acidic. So it just depends.

I drank lemon in water but my dentist has just told me to stop (my poor sensitive teeth). It really worked for me as it's great for the liver.

I felt more less bloated, taller and it helped regulate my BM. I had a lot more energy and my skin looked fantastic too!

I drank it instead of coffee in the morning - a whole lemon squeezed into a mug with some hot water. However, that's now a bit sour.

Another way, is to slice up a lemon and put a slice or two in your water bottle. Each time I finished the bottle, I'd empty the old lemon & replace it. I kept sliced lemon in the fridge at work.

I need to find a bottle that also has a straw so I can take this good habit back up again. Or think of a way to rinse my teeth each time I take a sip of water...

I'd recommend it, as long as you look after your teeth.

    • I know this post is a year ago... however it is still on the first page of the travel section!  I am from Uruguay, (South America) and I can answer this question for people that may look at it in the future. As a South American -  I can say that the cuisine varies greatly.  In cities, you shouldn't have any more than the normal amount of difficulty finding food.  For example, in Montevideo, the city I am from, you'll have no problem finding dedicated entire Celiac stores.  Meat is a large part of restaurant menus, so parilladas (similar in theory to steakhouses, would be very easy to navigate).  Uruguayans do eat a lot of pastries, and just like in the states... Most mainstream bakeries are not gluten free, but like I mentioned there are places that specialize.  In Uruguay, there is knowledge of Celiac and a large health awareness.  Some of the foods can be costly, cost of living in general is not low. In large swaths of South America, the foods you mentioned - Potatoes, rice, meat, etc are abundant, as are fresh fruits and veggies.  Avoiding corn does make it tricky.  Peru can be a great place for non-gluten eaters. Peru uses very little gluten (they are the original quinoa eaters) but there is a lot of corn in the diet (and since you are corn sensitive, that would be a food you would need to navigate). Latin America spread over two continents! In this area you will find a great variety in cultures, cuisines, and knowledge of celiac.  There is no reason why If you want to experience Latin America, that you have to rule out an entire region of the world because of Celiac.  Navigating it will be different, but it is doable!
    • Recently diagnosed last week does the pain ever get better??
    • George, i am sorry that you are not feeling well!  ☹️  I am not a doctor, but just trying out drugs to stop your symptoms just seems like a band aid  approach.  It sounds like he suspects IBS which is really, in my opinion, "I be stumped".  Has inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD) (more lovely autoimmune disorders) been ruled out?  This includes both Crohn's and Colitis.  My niece was diagnosed with Crohn's finally with a pill camera after all other tests were given.  The damage was not within reach of any scope.  I am just throwing out suggestions.  Hopefully, you and your doctor will figure it out soon!  
    • Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that happens to have a known trigger -- gluten.  Flare-ups develop  (antibodies) causing damage. Not just in the small intestine, but systemically.  One gluten exposure can cause antibodies to increase for days or months!   Antibodies are being measured during the celiac blood tests.   If there is no gluten exposure, there will be no antibodies.  These antibodies can come down in some people in as little as two weeks.  Recommendations require gluten 2 to 4 weeks daily for the biopsies taken via endoscopy in order to be sure to catch damage, but 8 to 12 weeks for the blood tests.   The endoscopy is considered the "gold standard" in helping to diagnose celiac disease, but there are other things that can damage the small intestine.  So, the blood test helps solidify the diagnosis.   So, if you want a good result on your endoscopy, you need to be eating gluten daily for two week prior at a minimum.  I know it is tough and you are feeling sick.  Wish there was a better way to catch active celiac disease.    
    • Hi everyone, Just an update to my situation.  I had thought that I might be getting better since I started adding gluten-free grain back into my diet but I was wrong.  It seems that the Methscopalamine Bromide just delayed the effects, didn't stop them.  I had to stop taking it because one of the side effects is to stop sweating, which I did.  There were times when I felt hot and almost couldn't catch my breath.  Anyway, my doc put me on Viberzi instead.  I took 3 doses, 1 Tuesday evening and then 1 Wednesday morning and then again Wednesday evening.  Each time I took 1, it seemed that about half an hour later I would develop severe abdominal cramping, pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back and a feeling like my insides were on fire.  My face felt like it was hot and tingling.  It wasn't warm to the touch but felt like it to me.  Worse of all is it didn't work anyway, I still had diarrhea.  I stopped taking Viberzi after reading the precautions pamphlet which said, "stop taking Viberzi and tell your doctor if you have abdominal cramping, pain which radiates to your shoulders or upper back."  Go figure.  Anyway, today is 3 weeks straight of diarrhea and still no diagnosis and not sure what he's going to want to do next.
