If you have lemon juice mix with olive oil and you take it every morning what benefits or side effects it has?

Better to put it on: Your food or salad. The omega 3's are good in olive oil, and lemon juice in water helps alkalinize your body, but straight can damage the enamel of your teeth. So a tsp diluted in a glass of water would be okay (and safe for your teeth.) ...Read more

Do any of you have opinions re holistic gallbladder "cleanses" using epsom salts, olive oil and lemon juice. What is left after all the tests?

Do any of you have opinions re holistic gallbladder "cleanses" using epsom salts, olive oil and lemon juice. What is left after all the tests?

Don't "cleanse"!: The ingredients you mentioned have no bearing on "cleansing" your gallbladder. In fact, epsom salts may harm your kidney. The gallbladder contains concentrated bile produced in the liver, & it empties in response to dietary fats. There is no physiologic way to wash out your gallbladder, so please don't waste your time and risk your health! ...Read more

Person diagnosed with gallstones, is it safe to try epsom salt, apple juice, olive oil, and lemon juice cleanse? Nutritionist gave this recipe.

Safe but won't work: This is an attempted cure but is really quackery. There is absolutely no proof that this works at all. People will believe they are seeing stones in their stool but this is not true. Regardless, it is safe to try this but it won't work. ...Read more

Is it safe to drink a mixture of lemon juice and olive oil every morning?

Is it safe to drink a mixture of lemon juice and olive oil every morning?

Safe, but why?: I don't know what good this would do, but it certainly won't be harmful, assuming no more than a couple ounces of oil and that you're not trying to control your weight. (An ounce of olive oil has about 250 calories.) If in moderation and you like the taste, feel free. If not, don't do it. ...Read more

My husband was diagnosed w/ gallbladder polyps & stones. He passed out green&black feces after drinking olive oil & lemon juice. Were that stones?

My husband was diagnosed w/ gallbladder polyps & stones. He passed out green&black feces after drinking olive oil & lemon juice. Were that stones?

Not gallstones: The combination of olive oil, lemon juice, and digestive enzymes in our gut creates "soap stones"; these are not gallstones. There is medication, however, that can sometimes dissolve stones. However, it is an ineffective alternative to surgery--the gb is a "gallstone factory"--new stones will form within a few years. Lastly, a polyp can be pre-malignant: if > 1 cm, the gallbladder should be removed. ...Read more

Hello doctor. I am a dark skinned lady, I am currently using coconut oil allover body and also lemon juice on my knees and elbows coz they tend to look?

Hello doctor. I am a dark skinned lady, I am currently using coconut oil allover body and also lemon juice on my knees and elbows coz they tend to look?

GOOD MOISTURIZERS: Coconut oil or for that matter any barrier cream or oil leaves a thin film of a barrier on the skin. This allows the natural oil of the skin to be trapped by the body for a longer time. This allows to lock in the moisture and reduces dryness of the skin. When the skin is dry it tends to look rough and tends to crack. So you can continue. ...Read more

Is a cleansing for 3 days, every month, good or bad? A cleanse being no food but a drink consisting of epsom salts, grapefruit juice and olive oil.

Is a cleansing for 3 days, every month, good or bad? A cleanse being no food but a drink consisting of epsom salts, grapefruit juice and olive oil.

No proof: There is no proof of any benefit nor of safety from cleansing, regardless of regimen. There is no proof that any toxic stool builds up in your colon. Just eat plenty of fruits & vegetables on a daily basis. While I can't speak for south africa, in the states, we recommend screening colonoscopy for low risk patients beginning at 50yo. Prep for that will clean out bowels but not necessary every mont. ...Read more

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).
