Lemon juice is said to lower blood sugar. When added to a meal it slows down the release of sugar into the blood stream by up to 30%. Lemon juice also helps to make our body more alkaline. It is said that disease and cancer thrive in an acidic body, so by taking lemon juice, our bodies become more alkaline, something disease and cancers can’t live in.
Raw local honey is excellent in combating allergies. It is another alkaline forming food and contains natural vitamins, enzymes, powerful antioxidants, and other important nutrients. It is also has anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
The easiest way to explain it is like this: Using local raw honey is much like getting those dreaded allergy shots. Bees collect pollen from trees, flowers and other things you may be allergic to, as well as other environmental allergens, so bits of those things are in the honey. When you eat the honey, you are exposed to allergens in small enough doses that your body begins to recognize it and eventually does not see it as an allergen at all.
Be sure to rinse mouth after drinking this so the lemon doesn’t stay on your teeth, which, over time, could lead to erosion of the enamel.
