Lemon Powers

When life hands you lemons, appreciate them, They are very good for you. 

Lemons though acidic to the taste, but do the opposite in the body. They actually are alkaline-forming to the body. Lemons are in fact the highest alkaline-forming food and are great at keeping the bodies PH level balanced. Because of their antibacterial properties, lemons can be found in kitchens all over the world.

Lemons are your livers best friend. It helps to stimulate and detoxify the liver. Starting your day with lemon water is a great way to daily detoxify. Lemons help dissolve uric acid and other poisons.

Lemon peels contain potent phytonutrient tangeretin which protect against brain disorders like Parkinson’s disease

Guards you against Hangovers Lemon juice and room temperature water helps reduce nausea and aids in metabolizing alcohol. 

Dissolves calcium like deposits Lemons decrease the acidity of urine; this prevents the formation of calcium oxalate and uric acid stones.  Lemons are rich in citric acid this helps to dissolve gallstones, calcium deposits, and kidney stones. 

Lemons contain flavonoids and Vitamin C, making it a great immune system booster to help the body fight off infections. Also, vitamin C helps neutralize free radicals that lead to aging and disease.

They Treat Scurvy This seems random but if you’re a cruise ship traveler this may intrigue you. 

In 1747, a naval surgeon named James Lind cured scurvy with fresh lemons. To this day, the British Navy requires ships to carry enough lemons so that every sailor could have one ounce of juice a day. In the past, lemons were replaced with limes; this is where the English got their nickname “limeys.”

Lemons protect from intestinal worms. One cup of spearmint juice, black salt, and lemon juice daily removes all types of parasite infections from the stomach. 

Lemon Nutrition:

  • Lemons contain vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, citric acid, flavonoids, potassium, calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, and fiber.
  • Lemons contain more potassium than apples or grapes. Potassium is beneficial to the heart. But you still need Bananas for your potassium fix. 

Warning: Stay away from restaurant and bar lemons. Lemons not washed properly can lead to microbial flora

“We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons.” –Alfred E. Newman

Parkinson’s and other tremor disease culprits

As a disease that currently cannot be cured, prevention of Parkinson’s disease is crucial. People over 60 years of age used to make up the majority of those afflicted, but with increasing lifestyle factor risks like chronic exposure to pesticides and a generally increasing toxic burden, cases are now being reported regularly in people under 50 and even under 40 years of age.

THE PESTICIDE CULPRIT

The risk of Parkinson’s disease clearly increases with exposure to certain environmental toxins, such as pesticides. Pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides are potent toxicants that may cause disruptions or damage to the neurological system, including your brain.

What is perhaps most concerning is that even ambient exposure to pesticides has been found to increase the risk of Parkinson’s disease considerably,1 and this was further confirmed by new research linking the disease to extremely low-level pesticide exposure.

Parkinson’s disease is still classified as idiopathic, meaning it has no identifiable cause. But one reason it is likely on the rise is due to many environmental toxins that now bombard your body on a daily basis, with pesticide exposure becoming an undeniable risk factor. According to the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation

Avoiding pesticide exposure – around your home, in your community, and via the food you eat – is clearly important for reducing your Parkinson’s risk, as is reducing your exposure to environmental toxins of all kinds. Exposure to industrial solvents, including TCE, a common degreasing agent and dry-cleaning chemical, has also been linked to Parkinson’s disease, for instance. So along with avoiding the use of solvents and pesticides in your home and garden, eating organic foods as much as possible will help you avoid unnecessary exposure to these chemicals.

THE MERCURY CULPRIT

Another important and often-overlooked environmental risk factor is “silver” amalgam dental fillings, which actually are more than half mercury. Mercury becomes a biochemical train wreck in your body, causing your cell membranes to leak, and inhibits key enzymes your body needs for energy production and removal of toxins. Mercury toxicity can lead to major inflammation and chronic illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease.

THE FLUORINE CULPRIT

fluoride is a waste of aluminum

The Parkinson’s-like tremors are, likewise, also associated with the toxic substance, Fluorine/Fluoride. It particularly affects the kidneys and promotes low blood pressure. It causes the muscles to become flabby and degenerated. Fluoride destroys our will to live! “Many commercial tubes of toothpaste contain cavity-fighting fluoride. Each one of these tubes contains 1,000 – 2,000 mgs. of fluoride, enough to kill a small child who might eat the whole contents.” (Journal of Pediatrics 1987) People taking tablets containing one-half of one milligram of fluoride per day (the amount found in 1 to 2 pints of fluoridated water) can expect to experience: Black tar-like stools, stiffness, bloody vomit, diarrhea, faintness, nausea and vomiting, shallow breathing, stomach cramps or pain, tremors, unusual excitement, unusual increase in saliva, watery eyes, weakness, constipation, loss of appetite, pain and aching bones, skin rash, and sores in the mouth and on the lips. (US Pharmacopeia Volumes on Drug Information 1983 quotes Hannah Kroeger’s book, God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

 

 

THE ALUMINUM CULPRIT

In the Harvard Health Letter, (Oct. 1990, Vol 15, No. 11), studies found that “Aluminum accumulates in lesions in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. It builds up in degenerating nerve fibers (neurotic plaques) and shriveled filaments inside the cells (neurofibrary tangles).

 

According to Louise Gittleman in How to Stay Young and Health in a Toxic World, the major areas where aluminum accumulates is in the brain, kidneys, and GI tract. And in his book, Fighting Radiation, Steve Schnechter, N.D. not only indicates aluminum’s connection with Alzheimer’s, depression, constipation and Schizophrenia, but says “Like many of the other environmental toxins, aluminum has cumulative effects in the human body – what started out at age fifteen as occasional headaches may by age fifty be Parkinson’s disease.” He adds that people who eat animal foods such as meats, poultry, and dairy are regularly ingesting higher concentrations of aluminum.

 

 

THE ARSENIC CULPRIT

 

Arsenic exposure causes numbness of the limbs and loss of coordination as part of its long list of symptoms. It is found in heavy industrial areas in the air, water, pesticides, and insecticides and is associated with Epilepsy, Arthritis, and Arteriosclerosis. (Arsenic and Your Environment, Dr. Bara Fischer, 1986).

 

The Environmental Protection Agency limits the amount of arsenic in U.S. public drinking water to 10 parts per billion (ppb). Water that comes from privately owned wells may contain higher levels of arsenic, especially in areas where the groundwater flows over arsenic-rich bedrock, according to Dartmouth University. 

 

No federal limit has been set for the amount of arsenic in foods. Arsenic may found in grains, fruits, and vegetables according to the FDA. Rice is different than other grains — it takes up arsenic more readily from the environment, according to the FDA.

 

According to Consumer Reports, a 2010 study from the EPA said that vegetables account for the biggest dietary exposure to arsenic, accounting for 24 percent of intake. Fruits and fruit juices follow, with 18 percent, and rice accounts for 17 percent. Both organic and conventionally-grown foods may contain arsenic, according to the FDA. Inorganic arsenic is a known human carcinogen — it is this form of arsenic that is linked with increased risks of cancer and other health effects.

 

 

 

THE LEAD CULPRIT

Pesticides, paint, water and a long list of domestic products commonly contain lead and long exposure to it leads to tremors, twitching of the face muscles, jerking of the limbs, confusion, mania, seizures; a tremendous list of symptoms. The metal affects more than 1.7 million young children. In 1991, lead poisoning was referred to as the most common and socially devastating environmental disease of young children. Even in small amounts, lead poisoning damages children’s brains, slowing their mental capacities and lowering their intelligence level. Note particularly, that it is directly associated with Epilepsy and kidney cancer.

 

 

 

THE CADMIUM CULPRIT

Cadmium, like, is dangerously pervasive in our air, food, and water and is also a cumulative poison that can cause a wide range of toxicity symptoms. A principal source is again, the pesticides. Significant amounts are found in cigarette smoke. Other common sources are smoke from burning of wastes, wood, garbage, etc.; industrial effluents, plastics, fertilizers, auto exhaust, refined foods, coffee, and be forewarned: The first water out of the tap each day, hot tap water, and water from galvanized or black plastic pipes contain cadmium. It is also associated with hypertension (high blood pressure).

 

THE POLLUTION SOLUTION

In recent years, alternative means of protecting or ridding the body from these toxic poisons has begun to prove a natural means of protecting us from these hazards.

 

RECOMMENDED SOLUTIONS

Get a reputable water filter and a well-designed air ionizer for your home and your office. The air and water elements are of extreme importance in generating a poisonous-free lifestyle.

 

Take advantage of our research. Start clearing toxic poisonous substance from your body. Great success has been achieved with very special clay baths where the poisons are magnetically (naturally) pulled from your body. The metals in your system are naturally positively charged which means that our negatively charged clay formulae automatically attract the metals and chemicals, pulling the injurious substances out through your pores to bind with the clay and its various herbs and spices. (Note: There are several hundred types of clay. Most of them do not have the magnetic action we have found in ours
