The Simple 4-minute Lemon Detox That Will Help Your Body Feel Great

Originally posted on Exceptional Life Institute

You’ve seen the $5 bottles of pressed juice at your favorite coffee place and your local supermarket. You’ve heard of people going on two week cleanses. And you know that cleansing toxins out from your body is important for your health, happiness, and wellbeing.

But did you know that cleansing doesn’t have to be so complicated or expensive?

We all know what a lemon is. You can get one for under a dollar at any grocery store. Today I’m going to share a super simple and highly effective lemon cleanse that will cost you less than $4 and take less than 4 minutes a day for four days.

Lemons have been used for centuries in Ayurvedic and Natural Health remedies.

Every month I do a simple lemon cleanse four days in a row where I squeeze the juice of a whole lemon into a cup of lukewarm water and have it first thing in the morning (before food, water, or any other drinks). This helps you alkalize the body and provides tons of great health benefits, including:

  • Promotes weight loss
  • Keeps skin clear and healthy (Vitamin C and antioxidants in lemon have been shown to kill bacteria that cause acne)
  • Helps reduce chronic inflammation and can uplift your mood, increase energy levels, and improve your overall sense of wellbeing
  • Flushes out toxins and cleanses the liver
  • Boosts your immune system with lots of vitamins and minerals
  • Cleans out your digestive system by acting as a digestive aid

Have a lemon tomorrow (and for the next three days!) – your body will thank you for it! Just remember to wait 45 minutes afterward before eating or drinking anything else so you don’t violate the rules of Trophology or #EatingEvolved!
