Lemon Juice And Nasal Polyps
What are the effects of using lemon juice and nasal polyps? Well in my case it is a fact that the bulk of my nasal polyp condition was caused through inflammation.
Reducing the inflammation seemed to make good, common sense towards reducing the effects of nasal polyps.
Now after seeing a naturopath, I was told that the best way to help reduce inflammation was to neutralize my body. Easier said than done I thought.
So my naturopath said to squeeze the juice of a lemon into a glass of warm water every morning, first thing is best before eating or having a tea or coffee, and drink this down.
The sharp, acidic taste took a bit of getting used to, but after a week or two became easier to swallow, and became part of my morning ritual. I seriously look forward to this every morning now and can’t imagine going without.
Benefits Of Lemon Juice For Sinus Problems
So why are they so good for us?
Well, lemons have antiviral, antibacterial and immune boosting qualities, have over 7 essential vitamins and 8 minerals, with Vitamin C the big one here.
One medium to large lemon contains over 60 mg which is just over 100% of your recommended daily intake of Vit C. This is perfect for boosting your immune system to keep your body healthy inside.
The PH level for the lemon (from 0 -14, with 0 being acidic and 14 alkaline) is around 10 so this is probably why she suggested lemon juice to help re-balance my acidity/alkaline levels.
I must say after doing this very regularly for over 4 months I have noticed my sinuses feeling a lot clearer and another benefit is some of the joint pain I used to have has nearly totally disappeared. (More about that in another post).
Lemons are also great for using as part of your detox routine. They kick start your liver to increase bile which is used to aid digestion and also help stimulate the bowel to flush out toxins. A perfect start to a healthy new you.
Well, that’s it for now, just thought you all should know about one of nature’s wonder fruits.
Until next time.
