Lemon juice has incredible healing properties when it comes to skin surfaces, mucous membranes and especially the linings of the esophagus, stomach wall and intestines.
Stomach and intestinal ulcers are becoming more and more common these days with the increase in stress in our everyday lives. However, some ulcers are caused by viruses.
Either way, they can be life threatening conditions should they deteriorate to the point of bleeding. The lemon juice treatment consists of drinking the juice of two lemons (about 1/3 cup) every morning when you first get up and 30 minutes before you eat or drink anything else.
This is important because it gives the lemon juice time to work on healing the entire digestive tract before it has to deal with digesting breakfast. Many patients have noticed a difference within the first couple of days, stating that they no longer feel the symptoms of heartburn, indigestion or bloating.
Some patients that had previously been popping antacids tablets regularly, reported that they no longer required these medicines after beginning the lemon juice regiment.
Consult with your physician about the use of lemon juice to promote the healing of your ulcers or other digestive disorders and see if it works for you. It certainly won't hurt and it just may help.
