Lemon juice diluted in good alkaline water first thing in the morning is an excellent cleanse for the kidney and liver! This cleanse is so gentle to the body that it can be done daily, and should be a life long habit in my humble opinion.
You can “kick it up a notch” if you like:
- Squeeze the juice of 1/2 a lemon into an 8 oz glass
- Fill with pure alkaline water
- Add one or two drops each of Lemon and of Peppermint essential oils
- Add local raw honey to taste.
(The addition of the honey and essential oils give your immune system a boost this time of year as well ! )
This drink must be taken first thing in the morning before anything else is taken into the body such as coffee, food, or even water or toothpaste in order to receive the cleansing action for the kidneys. NOTE: Even this enhanced version of the cleanse is still gentle enough for everyday.
