Grow Youthful: How to Slow Your Aging and Enjoy Extraordinary Health

Ailment: Flatulence

Remedy: Lemon juice

Lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, sour whey, Swedish bitters and kombucha are all invaluable aids to improving digestion. Try each of them to find which works best for you.

Mix a teaspoon, or a few teaspoons of fresh lemon (or lime) juice in a glass of water, and drink it 20 minutes before a meal, or at any time. It helps with the digestion of food (good to take before a meal) and a wide range of digestive problems, and contributes to general health and longevity.

You can also use lemon juice and ACV on your skin. The acidity is beneficial, promoting acidic bacteria and inhibiting fungi. The acidity also inhibits demodex mites living in hair follicles and oil glands. Almost every adult has these mites, but in some people their population gets out of control, or their skin reacts to the mites.

Apply undiluted ACV or lemon juice directly on the skin for skin fungus, psoriasis and other skin conditions.

Mix the juice of half a lemon or lime in a cup of body-temperature water. Drink it slowly after meals. Optionally, add 1 teaspoon of grated ginger or half teaspoon of ginger powder. Other options are a pinch of asafoetida powder, and a pinch of rock salt. This drink is a wonderful home remedy for flatulence. It helps within minutes, and also gives a permanent soothing cure.
