When life gives you lemons…

When life gives you lemons…

Drink them!

So I have been doing this for a few years on and off, and I always end up coming back to it at the start of each season. I was reminded this past week by my good friend and Naturopathic Doctor, dr. Jesse Pierce of Livewell in Ottawa to start again.

So why all the lemons?

I hit the number 50 this past year and I find myself looking back and reaching for all of the anti-aging hormone balancing tools that I can find to put into my toolbox.

Dr. Jesse gave me a list of benefits to drinking hot lemon water in the morning… and the last one is the best!

  • Fights inflammation – because lemon juice is alkalizing
  • Supports a healthy immune system – Vitamin C!
  • Aids digestion – helps eliminate toxins
  • Hydrating – electrolytes
  • Detoxifying – a gentle diuretic to help flush toxins naturally
  • Metabolism booster – pectin helps reduce cravings and matches a more alkaline diet
  • And the last one:
    Balance your hormones – alkalizing and liver supporting properties that help the body break down damaging toxins derived from the environment in the form of hormone disruptors.

Recipe:

Morning Lemon Water

Boil water, add juice of half of a lemon (1 tablespoon) and a pinch of cayenne!

Drink over the first half an hour after waking before eating breakfast.
