The lemon cure
The objective of this cure is to proceed to a great cleansing of the liver, especially during the changes of season. Lemon stimulates the production of bile, which plays a central role in the elimination of waste from the body and the digestion of fats. Ideal after the winter to eliminate the excesses of a diet often very fatty during this season. But this cure can also be followed at any time of the year, especially at the approach of winter for example, because lemon also helps to strengthen the immune system.
Unlike the grape or soup cure, the lemon cure is not a monodiet. The principle is not to eat only lemon or lemon juice, but to integrate this citrus fruit in a sufficiently large quantity into one's diet for a few days.
For an even more complete detox action, add a touch of honey, a pinch of cinnamon and ginger to your lemon juice.
