Only the living water in freshly squeezed lemon holds the life-giving nutrients that will cleanse and replenish your body and keep you hydrated.


Alcohol in any form certifies as toxin and your liver will expend a large amount of energy trying to get rid of the alcohol to purify blood. During this process, usage of metabolic energy often leads to weight gain, sluggishness, fatigue, and sleepiness.

Liver Detox With Lemon Water | Healthfully

I did exactly what my doctor told me to do and had another blood test after a month. The numbers did not go down much, just a few points on both SGPT and SGOT. I tailspinned into a bundle of nerves and paranoia got the better of me. Coincidentally, a close friend’s friend died of cirrhosis of the liver and that really did me in! I checked my eyes, my skin, my nails every hour on the hour in case they were turning yellow, which I was told was one of the signs of cirrhosis. My siblings and friends thought I was a basket case. I was paranoid about everything I ate and hardly ate anything in fact. It truly took a toll on my mental health and I lost so much weight that I started to look sick. A concerned friend convinced me to join a liver/kidney/gall bladder flash, which was supposed to detox all three organs. At that point, I would have eaten a snake if it showed some promise of normalizing my liver enzymes. I was willing to do anything to get my liver numbers down and be in the peak of health once again. Following my friend’s advice, I went through that weekend detoxifying all three organs by fasting and drinking concoctions that are supposed to stimulate all the liver/kidney toxins and for cholesterol stones stored in the gall bladder to slide out easily. It was not a fun experience but well worth it. In between the drinks, we had yoga exercises and lectures about wellness from two doctors.

It depends on what else you are drinking or eating. So many people today are chronically dehydrated. You may wish to drink two liters of lemon water every day. In addition to other hydrating drinks like celery juice and cucumber juice, along with lots of fresh fruits, leafy greens and vegetables. Each person’s needs are different when it comes to hydration. An avid exerciser or someone with chronic illness or symptoms might want to bring more lemon water into their daily routine plus eat more fresh fruit throughout the day. The Liver Rescue Mornings in Liver Rescue are a great way to set yourself up to properly hydrate.

Lemons stay fresh kept at room temperature (not in sunlight) for about seven to 10 days. Or store them in the fridge for about four to five weeks.




Eating organic grains, fruits and veggies is important since pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides can make them toxic while probably being carcinogenic.


Squeeze half a lemon into 16 ounces of water and drink in the morning. You can also drink more throughout the day to flush and hydrate the body.
