I have been reading lately on the health benefits of  drinking hot water with fresh lemon juice.I have gerd, will the lemon do me more harm than good?

May actually help!: Many people find that drinking lemon juice actually helps GERD! However, any benefits are temporary and purely symptomatic (like the drugs that are commonly used). For an excellent and thorough discussion of how to cure GERD by addressing the underlying causes please see http://chriskresser.com/what-everybody-ought-to-know-but-doesnt-about-heartburn-gerd ...Read more

Does lemon with hot water help in detox? If no, what should be taken for that purpose?

Does lemon with hot water help in detox? If no, what should be taken for that purpose?

Not really: Humans, designed or evolved over millions of years, are self-cleaning. That means we should eat what we are designed to eat, and our bodies will clear out unneeded materials without help. No supplements are needed, unless one wants extra fiber to move the bowels better. Proper diet, enough exercise, and a healthy mind should normalize bowels. Diseases may need treatment, but not "cleansing/detox". ...Read more

Constipation cures: Sounds like you're reporting constipation which can be described as decreased frequency and/or hard, difficulty to pass, stools. Natural methods include more fiber (aim for 25-36g/d), plenty of fluid (water, not alcohol or soft drinks) & regular physical activity. Stool softeners & laxatives are available over-the-counter but avoid taking regularly or else your bowel will become used to them. ...Read more

I have black spots on my lips due to burning of hot water, please suggest me how to remove the spots?I am applying lemon juice but still no use!

Black spot: If the wound has not healed up yet, then wait. Lip tissues tend to regenerate pretty well. If the burn was deep, then scar tissue will form. It's not usually not black in color. You should probably see a doc to make sure there is nothing else going on such as infection. I would not apply lemon juice as it may cause more damage. ...Read more

I have difficulty in passing stool.I have already tried having a cup of warm milk and a glass of lemon juice in hot water.What should I do?

Simple,short nd safe: Assuming no other medical issues i would have a bowl of oatmeal with coffee then go for a walk;works great for senors. If that does not solve the constipation try some stewed prunes or just prunes out of the bag. These are simple and safe. If this is a consistent problem see your md, check your diet and possibly see a nutritionist. ...Read more

If i were to drink all my water, with lemon squeezed into it, how would i benefit from it ?

Might taste better: Plain water has no taste and many people don't like that. Adding a wedge of lemon adds flavor, and perhaps a little vitamin c. Be careful, however, not to over do it. Lemon juice is acidic and to much can erode off the enamel on your teeth. ...Read more
