Lemon Water Benefits
- Lemon Water Has Citrate
When you are in Ketogenic Diet or if you eat foods that is high in oxalate, your kidney can form kidney stone. The only way to counter this is with Citrate that is found a lot in lemon.
I have one unique experience with lemon water and kidney stone. My husband’s kidney was inflammed one day and he was in a very painful condition, waiting for the doctor to give him treatment. The doctor in charge took an x-ray and found out there are kidney stones stuck in his kidney
It was a weekend and the doctor told us to wait until Monday. I couldn’t let my husband suffer like that, so I searched for a way to eliminate his pain. I got him watermelon skin juice (the skin without the red meat) to reduce his kidney inflammation. I gave hime like 3-4 times a day. And also lemon water with olive oil mixed together, also 3-4 times a day.
On the third day, surprisingly… the stones came out without pain at all!!!
He peed out 3 small bits of kidney stones. One qas quite big like an orange seed, the others are like small stones.
And on Monday when we have him checked, the stones are no longer there!
