This daily trick can help you detoxify, improve your digestion and boost your metabolism & energy levels

warm-lemon drink image
You’re bombarded with toxins in today’s modern world… everywhere from the polluted air you breathe, the water you drink, the shampoos and other cosmetics that lather your body with chemicals, and of course, all of the chemical additives, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and other harmful compounds in the food that you eat.

All of these TOXINS can have harmful effects on your body, harming your metabolism and hormones, impairing your digestive system, and zapping your energy levels.

If I could tell you ONE thing that you could do each morning right as you wake up to help your body eliminate some of these toxins, improve your digestion, stimulate your metabolism, and BOOST your energy, would you do it?

Of course you would… and it takes less than 1 minute!

Here’s the trick…

Immediately upon waking each day, squeeze about 1/2 to 1 full lemon (depending on size of the lemon) into an 8 oz glass of warm or room temperature purified water.  This is gentler on your body first thing in the morning compared to ice cold water.  I’ve found that slicing the lemon into quarters before squeezing by hand is easier than squeezing halves.

Drink this at least 10 minutes before eating any food for the day.

Make sure to use fresh organic lemons to make this drink, and not bottled lemon juice.  You want to use organic lemons to avoid the pesticides that can accumulate.
3 Major benefits of this morning drink to your body, health, and energy:

According to a leading health publication,

“The health promoting benefits of lemons are powerful. For centuries, it has been known that lemons contain powerful antibacterial, antiviral and immune boosting components. We know that lemons are a great digestive aid and liver cleanser. 

Lemons contain citric acid, magnesium, bioflavonoids, vitamin C, pectin, calcium and limonene, which supercharge our immunity so that the body can fight infection.

Lemons are considered one of the most alkalizing foods you can eat. This may seem untrue as they are acidic on their own. However, in the body, lemons are alkaline; the citric acid does not create acidity once it has been metabolized. The minerals in lemons are actually what helps to alkalize the blood.  Most people are too acidic (from eating too much sugar and grains), and drinking warm lemon water helps reduce overall acidity, drawing uric acid from the joints.

This reduces the pain and inflammation which many people feel. And the American Cancer Society recommends warm lemon water to encourage regular bowel movements.”

Benefits that you can enjoy:

1. Improves your digestion:

Lemon juice helps your body improve digestion and stimulates bile production. Lemon juice can even be an aid for heartburn and indigestion.
2. Boosts your energy for the day:

Even just the scent of lemon juice has been shown to improve your mood and energy levels, and reduce anxiety.  Plus the detoxifying effect and alkalizing effect of fresh organic lemon juice can improve your energy through the removal of toxins from your body.
3. Helps you to lose fat:

Since lemon juice helps to improve your digestive system, aids in removal of toxins, and increases your energy levels, this all combines together to help you to lose body fat as well through improving your hormonal balance… Yet another reason to add warm lemon water to your daily morning routine!

Aloe Vera

The plant Aloe (scientific name Aloe vera) is originally from tropical Africa, but it can now be found all over the world. It is a very common ingredient in many herbal remedies. It is believed that related species were traditionally used as an antidote to treat poison arrow wounds. We know that the Greeks and Romans traditionally used the Aloe vera plant, making a gel to treat battle wounds. Aloe vera was also commonly used during the Middle Ages, where it was a popular purgative. Aloe vera is also widely used in traditional Chinese medicine. In India too the Aloe Vera plant is widely used as highly regarded cooling tonic in gel form. In the 16th century, Aloe Vera reached the West Indies, where it also began to be widely cultivated. The character of Aloe Vera has been described in many ways. Its leaves are often described as hot, bitter and moist. Its gel is described as salty, bitter, cool and moist. The actions of Aloe Vera are described as purgative and healing. Aloe Vera has been known to promote bile flow, heal wounds, stop bleeding, expel worms, reduces blood sugar and cholesterol levels. It has also been known for its rejuvenating and anti-aging properties.

The most common way to prepare the Aloe Vera plant is as a gel. The gel is thick and mucilaginous, and many herbalists recommend that it be used as a first-aid cure for wounds, burns, and sunburn. Aloe Vera gel can also help heal extremely dry skin, and it can be used to treat fungal infections such as ringworm. Gel extracts of the Aloe Vera plant have been successfully used to treat mouth ulcers. Recent research has also shown that Aloe Vera gel may be helpful in treating breast and liver cancers, as well as HIV. In traditional Indian Ayruveda medicine, Aloe Vera gel is used as a tonic for excess pitta (fire element).

The leaves of Aloe Vera, although much less commonly used, can also be helpful for several conditions. The leaves of the Aloe Vera plant are believed to be a strong purgative. They can be prepared and used to treat chronic and stubborn constipation. It is also believed that the leaves of the Aloe Vera plant leaves can be used to stimulate bile flow and to aid digestions. They can also be used to treat poor appetite. One of the best things about the Aloe Vera plant is that they can be grown easily indoors as a houseplant in most temperate climates. There are several practical applications for the Aloe Vera plant. The Aloe Vera gel can be applied directly to burns, wounds, fungal infections, insect bites, and areas of dry skin. You can simply split the Aloe Vera leaf and apply the gel directly. You can also collect the gel from several split leaves of the Aloe Vera plant to make an ointment. The gel of Aloe Vera can also be inhaled as a steam inhalation to treat bronchial congestion. A tincture can also be made from its leaves and taken as an appetite stimulant.

Botanical: Carica papaya
Family: Caricaceae (papaya)
Other common names:  Papaw, Mamao, Paw-Paw, Tree Melon, Gandul, Fan Kua

Papaya Leaf contains a remarkable protein-dissolving enzyme called papain, and if you suffer from indigestion or heartburn, give Papaya Leaf a try!   The enzyme in Papaya Leaf also breaks down wheat gluten and carbohydrates for extra digestive protection.

The information presented herein  is intended for educational purposes only. These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, cure, treat or prevent disease. Individual results may vary, and before using any leaf matter, it is always advisable to consult with your own health care provider.

Papaya is an herbaceous tree with a stem of spongy, soft wood that is hollow in the center and bears melon-like fruit.  It is an interesting tree, in that the male and female parts exist in different trees, and trees may grow to a height of twenty to thirty feet. The Papaya Tree needs a tropical climate that is dry when cold and wet when warm; consequently, its greatest success appears in the equatorial zone with its warm wet season and cool dry season.  It is extremely sensitive to frost, and water-logging will kill the taproot within forty-eight hours. The Papaya is especially susceptible to parasites, pests and diseases. This fussy plant needs a lot of water but must have good drainage, and it bears most fruit in light, porous, slightly acidic soils that are rich in organic matter.

Said to be a native of the Caribbean and Central America, the Papaya is the true papaw that now grows abundantly throughout tropical America, Hawaii and many other tropical climates throughout the world.  Although grown to some extent in south Florida, the true papaw is not related to the North American papaw.  The fruits, leaves and latex are all used medicinally. The delicious fruit is usually pear-sized and has a central cavity filled with edible, pea-sized seeds. Generally, the fruit is melon-like, oval to nearly round, and the skin is waxy and thin but fairly tough.  As the fruit ripens, it becomes yellow externally, and the thick wall of flesh becomes aromatic, yellow, orange or various shades of red.

Papaya Fruit is eaten as a melon, included in salads and when unripe, it is cooked as a vegetable.  The seeds are said to have a similar flavor as capers.  The green fruit, stems and leaves are a rich source of a gummy, milky, white latex that contains the powerful enzyme, papain (in latex and exudate).  This protein-dissolving substance has not only been widely used for stomach and digestive disorders, but it is also included in commercial preparations as a meat tenderizer, chewing gum and as a stabilizing agent that is used to clarify beer. The fruit is usually pear-sized and has a central cavity filled with edible, pea-sized seed, which are said to have a similar flavor as capers.

Papaya Leaves are cooked and considered a green vegetable and are a rich source of a gummy, milky, white latex that contains the powerful enzyme, papain.  This protein-dissolving substance is an excellent remedy for stomach and digestive disorders.  Papain is so powerful that Papaya Leaves have been wrapped around meats to break down the fibers and tenderize them.  It is included in commercial preparations as a meat tenderizer and often used for that purpose in restaurants, and it also used commercially in chewing gums and as a stablizing agent that is used to clarify beer.

Papaya Leaves were even fed to animals to tenderize their flesh.  Some of Papaya Leaf’s constituents include the fermenting agent myrosin, alkaloids, rutin, resin, tannins, carpaine, dehydrocarpaines, pseudocarpaine, flavonols, benzylglucosinolate, linalool, malic acid, methyl salicylate, another enzyme, chymopapain (latex and exudate), calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, beta-carotene, B-vitamins and vitamins A, C and E.

Beneficial Uses:
Papaya Leaf is an excellent treatment for digestive disorders and extremely useful for any disturbances of the gastrointestinal tract.  Papain, the powerful enzyme in Papaya, helps to dissolve and digest protein, thus easing stomach ailments and indigestion.  (Because papain breaks down tough meat fibers, it is often used in restaurants and is the major ingredient in commercial meat tenderizers!)  Papaya has been effective in easing heartburn and is given to treat dyspepsia and gastric catarrh.  Papaya also stimulates the appetite.

Papaya Leaf’s enzyme, papain, not only digests protein, but it extends its activity to digesting carbohydrate. Papain also breaks down wheat gluten, which may be helpful for those suffering from Celiac disease; and those who have difficulty digesting starchy foods, such as breads, cereals and potatoes, might find great relief in including Papaya in their diets.

The papain in Papaya is thought to relieve acute prostate inflammation and may be very helpful in cases of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH).  Clinical studies in Russia found that papain treatment reversed rectal lesions induced by extreme prostate enlargement in over 97 percent of the men treated.

The papain in Papaya is currently undergoing studies to investigate its efficacy in treating the herpes simplex virus and herpes zoster (shingles).

Another papayan enzyme, chymopapain, has been used in the treatment of slipped spinal disc and pinched nerves.

Since many stomach problems are the direct result of indigestion, use of Papaya appears to help prevent many ailments.  It stimulates digestive acids and the production of bile, which may also lead to a healthier liver and pancreas.

Papaya is said to stimulate the bowels in times of constipation and is also believed to be useful in treating inflammatory bowel disorders.

In many areas of the world, Papaya is used as a vermifuge, anthelmintic and amoebacide that eliminates worms and other parasites, and it is thought that the papain content digests the invaders, and Papaya’s latex also works as a dewormer by its purgative actions, increasing the movement of intestinal contents.

People who take blood medication (Sulfinpyrazone) or blood thinning medication (Coumadin, aspirin, etc.) should consult with their physicians before taking this herb, as it may have anticoagulant properties.

Pregnant women should avoid Papaya, as it can be a uterine stimulant (papain apparently dissolves a protein(s) responsible for adhering the newly fertilized egg to the wall of the uterus).  Papaya in all its forms should never be taken by people with a latex allergy (causing anaphylactic shock).  Inhaling Papaya powder (high in the enzymes, papain and chymopapain, can induce allergies. Although papain digests carbohydrates, potato protein may cause papain to not work as well when taken at the same time.

The Drink Your Body Loves

By Michael Roizen, M.D., and Mehmet Oz, M.D.

Many women see comfort in a cup of chamomile tea, thanks to its slightly sedating effect and its ability to ease anxiety, menstrual cramps and skin problems. Your bloodstream finds it comforting, too. Because there’s something in chamomile that not only helps keep blood sugar stable (at least in the lab), but also guards against the tsunami of damage that high blood sugar can do.
Too-high levels of blood sugar can act like scouring powder on your arteries, weakening junctions between cells, allowing nicks between cells that encourage an ugly pileup of inflammation and plaque. Everything that’s happening in there eventually makes itself known in the form of a heart attack, stroke, memory loss, impotence, wrinkled skin and more. But chamomile can change all that.

If you don’t like tea (and even if you do), there’s plenty more you can do, with next to no effort, to keep blood sugar even and its damage at bay (in addition to eating well and exercising):
Fill up on broccoli. It’s rich in a compound called sulforaphane, reputed to cut blood sugar damage to arteries.
Spice things up with cinnamon. This favorite spice may turn on insulin receptors and help your body use glucose better (no pileups of sugar in your blood). Cloves and allspice also may help prevent diabetes damage.
Say yes to spinach. People who fill up on this green have lower rates of diabetes, possibly because of its magnesium content.

The Body Part

That Wants You To Go Green

By Michael Roizen, M.D., and Mehmet Oz, M.D.

Your knees love it when you go green. We don’t mean environmentally green, although they appreciate it when you take the stairs and when you take your bike for a spin instead of the car (strong leg muscles keep your joints healthy). We mean eating green. Filling your meals with this color can go a long way to preventing arthritis. Here’s what to reach for:
Leafy greens. A killer, flavor-filled salad or side dish could mean one less knee replacement surgery in the world. The vitamin K in leafy greens — think cabbage, spinach and Swiss chard, for starters — reduces your risk of joint damage. People who have the highest levels of K are less likely to develop the bone spurs and cartilage damage that are common in osteoarthritis. (A word of caution: If you’re on a blood thinner, check with your doctor about whether K is safe for you.) Leaves just not your thing? No problem. Broccoli and asparagus make tasty alternatives.

Green tea. Potent compounds in green tea — EGCG and ECG — may help battle cartilage and collagen destruction in arthritic joints. The EGCG and ECG found in green tea are powerful flavonoids known as catechins. These particular flavonoids fight inflammation and some of the underlying mechanisms that mess with knees in both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Bonus: Sipping it before you do that knee-preserving workout may help you burn fat faster.

Chlorophyl is a powerful antidote for cellular regeneration.

It can be obtained from your local chemist or drug store cheaply.

Cultivation and uses

Terminalia catappa is widely grown in tropical regions of the world as an ornamental tree, grown for the deep shade its large leaves provide. The fruit is edible, tasting slightly acidic.

The wood is red, solid and has high water resistance; it has been utilized in Polynesia for making canoes. in telugu it is called as


The leaves contain several flavonoids (like kamferol or quercetin), several tannins (such as punicalin, punicalagin or tercatin), saponines and phytosterols. Due to this chemical richness, the leaves (and also the bark) are used in different traditional medicines for various purposes. For instances, in Taiwan fallen leaves are used as a herb to treat liver diseases. In Suriname, a tea made from the leaves is prescribed against dysentery and diarrhea. It is also thought that the leaves contain agents for prevention of cancers (although they have no demonstrated anticarcinogenic properties) and antioxidant as well as anticlastogenic characteristics.

Keeping the leaves in an aquarium is said to lower the pH and heavy metal content of the water It has been utilized in this way by Betta breeders in Thailand for many years

Dear Heartburn and Acid Reflux Sufferer,

Does your throat feel hairy and your chest burning?


If you’re tired of burning a hole through your esophagus, choking on stomach acid, propping your head up on thirteen pillows to sleep… all because of your painful heartburn and acid reflux, then this will be the most important message you ever read!

I was in your shoes, not too long ago. And I’ve found a cure that can help you, and I want you to know about it, because…


Acid Reflux, Heartburn, Hiatal

Hernia, Gastritis, Esophageal

Reflux, or Bile Reflux!

(Yes, I’ve suffered from them



You see, in 1976, I almost died during stomach surgery for some bleeding ulcers. The doctors operated on my stomach, but while in surgery, they connected a bile duct to my stomach, instead of my small intestine… which caused bile to creep up into my esophagus.

After surgery, I couldn’t sleep on my right side without bile building up… and the only way I could get rid of it was by vomiting.

For almost a year, I had to vomit about three or four times every day. It was disgusting, and I knew I couldn’t go on like this forever – the acid was killing me!

I pretty much tried everything to overcome my reflux nightmare.

I tried using 13 pillows. Then I bought one of those “hospital beds” that adjust so your head is propped up all the time.

Then, a miracle happened.

One night, I really slept well. I didn’t have any reflux! But I couldn’t figure out… why???

So I back-tracked, and the only thing I could remember doing before going to bed was eating an apple! So, I started doing some experiments with different brands of apples… and discovered…

There was one specific brand of apple that helped me completely wipe out my reflux!


I started taking apples with me everywhere I went. And I found out I didn’t need to eat an entire apple… just one slice would do the trick.

So, with the apple, I had a reflux remedy  but not a full-fledged cure (since I still needed to take apples with me everywhere I went).

At first, the report contained just my “apple remedy”… but now, after doing a lot more research, and getting a TON of feedback from other reflux sufferers,

I have released an entirely new & improved version of our report… that has more than just a remedy, but a cure!


That’s right, our new report explains how you can cure acid reflux, heartburn, bile reflux, esophageal reflux, and even hiatal hernia, using one of three different safe, natural remedies that we have discovered.

These three natural remedies have been proven to work thousands of times by our customers… quickly (within minutes), safely (no side effects), and without drugs!

We have taken all of our research and put it into a report that you can order and read on your computer just minutes from right now…

I want to help you end the suffering, the painful burning feeling in your chest, just behind your breastbone after eating, the burning sensation in your throat. I want to help stop your chest pains, your difficulty swallowing, and your sleepless nights because I’ve been there before…

And there’s really no good reason you should be taking drugs, when you can be cured using a natural remedy!

I want to help you end the suffering, the painful burning feeling in your chest, just behind your breastbone after eating, the burning sensation in your throat. I want to help stop your chest pains, your difficulty swallowing, and your sleepless nights because I’ve been there before…

Most doctors won’t tell you about these natural remedies…
Because they never learn about them in medical school!

You’re about to discover a safe & natural way to get long-lasting relief from your pain AND

Cure the cause of your disease.

Heartburn is the most common symptom of acid reflux, and it’s caused by stomach acid backing up into your esophagus. The pain is often described as a burning sensation, rising from the stomach into the center of your chest.

Occasional heartburn doesn’t necessarily mean you suffer from Acid Reflux Disease. However, if you experience heartburn more than twice per week, and if your heartburn gets worse after you eat or when you lie down or bend over, you probably have a more serious condition than heartburn. You probably have Acid Reflux Disease.

Acid Reflux Disease (also called Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, or GERD) occurs when the reflux of stomach acid is frequent enough that it causes continual problems in your daily life, and/or results in damage to your esophagus.

Acid Reflux Disease and Heartburn can be Cured Quickly — Without Drugs, Using a Safe & Natural Home Remedy, Explained Fully in the “Heartburn & Reflux Remedy Report”

Ask for it here  heartburn report enquiry

You see, at the top of your stomach is a muscle called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), which normally opens and closes allowing food to enter the stomach. It also prevents the acid in your stomach from backing up into your esophagus.

With GERD, the LES opens at inappropriate times, allowing acid from the stomach to leak into the esophagus, where it doesn’t belong.

Acid reflux disease can also lead to more serious medical conditions that require hospitalization and even surgery.

In some acid reflux patients, acid can be regurgitated into the lungs, causing a cough or wheezing.

Acid reflux in the throat can cause sore throat. If acid reaches the mouth, it can dissolve the enamel of the teeth.

Millions of people have the disease and suffer from the pain of heartburn every day.

Now You May Be Wondering…
Why You Shouldn’t Just Use Prescription Drugs?

WARNING: Many people who have Acid Reflux Disease take prescription drugs like Prilosec, Prevacid or Nexium. While these drugs may help treat symptoms in the short-term (4 to 8 weeks, maximum), long-term use can cause the body to produce an extra amount of the hormone called gastrin. Gastrin is the substance that tells your stomach to make more acid. There are gastrin receptors on the esophageal, pancreatic, and gastric cancer cells, and over-production of gastrin can cause these cancer cells to grow too large, thus greatly increasing the risk of getting cancer in these areas.

Another problem with prescription drugs is the fact that many people take more than one medication, and the effects of one drug can amplify or alter the effects of another.

This can lead to serious reactions or even death in some cases. These reactions can also occur with over-the-counter medications, too.

Prescription drugs also increase the risk of recreational drug use. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that an estimated 4 million people use prescription drugs non-medically, which can lead to addictions. Also, overdosing, whether intentional or unintentional, can lead to severe body damage or death.

Prescription drugs can also build up toxins in your body, especially as you age – because your metabolism slows down, and your body is less able to process the medication.

Don’t you agree that you’d be better off using a natural home remedy, instead of prescription drugs?

And What About Antacids?…

Antacids (such as Pepcid, Zantac, Tagamet, Rolaids, and Tums) only mask the underlying problem of your heartburn or acid reflux. Most antacids contain excessive amounts of minerals such as Sodium, Aluminum, Calcium, and Magnesium. Excessive mineral imbalances can be very harmful, leading to cancer, hypertension or even Alzheimer’s Disease.

So as you’ve learned, there are many serious reasons why you need to try a safe & natural home remedy, instead of prescription drugs or antacids!
