Lemon Juice - Olive Oil Tonic

As part of my My Three Day Detox Program I have been drinking Lemon Juice – Olive oil Tonic.   I decided to continue drinking it as it helps me with my constipation problem.  Right now, defecation is easy and smooth and I have a daily regular bowel movement.

Lemon helps promote a healthy liver as it is an “excellent stimulant for the liver specially in the regulation of bile production.  It provide a natural strengthening agent to liver enzymes when they are too dilute and help fix oxygen and calcium levels in the liver, which ultimately affects blood oxygen levels” (source : http://www.waterbenefitshealth.com/benefits-of-drinking-lemon-water.html)

Lemon also aids in our digestive system as it helps in the process of food digestion as well as elimination.  The olive oil helps to lubricate the colons for easier passage of waste.

I drink this tonic every morning upon getting out of bed.  I make sure that I mix an equal amount of lemon juice and olive oil. You can drink this tonic 3 times a day specially when the symptoms are present.

This is a Natural Home-remedy for the following :

1) Weight Loss

2) For a healthy digestive system and relieves constipation

3) Liver Health - prevents formation of gall stones

4) Prevention as well as elimination of kidney stones

5) aids in releiving arthritis

6) helps with asthma

7) Anti-dandruff remedy - clean hair, massage the tonic on the scalp and hair strand leave for a few minutes
