Nature’s Medicine – Lemons

Prevention is Better than Cure

Lemons are full of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants and have powerful antibacterial properties.  They are an especially good source of vitamin C and folate (a B vitamin).  The National Centre for Biotechnology Information website reports that Vitamin C appears to exert a multitude of beneficial effects on the cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system.  It is a potent antioxidant.  Stockpile those antioxidants!

Hot Water with Lemon

I just love this drink first thing in the morning, it’s so refreshing; it’s like having an internal cleansing shower.  Adding some honey may make it more palatable for you, and could help to sooth coughs and colds too.  Anti-viral prevention information suggests that we have a sip of warm water every 20 minutes to wash any virus into the stomach, and to gargle every day with lemon, vinegar or salt water.

Andy has stockpiled lemons in the shop for you!

Prepare for the worst, hope for the best and get on with your life.

Be well,
Venetia Moore
