Lemon Detox – updated

*Update* – I finished the lemon detox with 200 fresh lemons.

The juice of freshly pressed lemons is a great way to detox your body.

I did it for 12 days and finished yesterday (17.09.), here a summary:

  • The effect during the first few days was that I felt a bit sick (because of the toxins in my body)
  • I had bit fever and shivering during the night
  • After day 5 those symptoms were gone and I felt every day better and better
  • Sometimes I felt a bit sleepy
  • Overall I felt better because of the Vitamin C Boost
  • Read below about the whole detox, its effect on your body and possible side effects
200 lemons

I’m currently doing a Lemon Detox for my body. Drank already the juice of 100 lemons during the last 6 days. And another 100 lemons will follow in the next 6 days. I’ll keep you updated here regarding the progress and outcomes of this ‘experiment’ and why I am doing it.

You can google it yourself and you’ll find all kinds of stuff (no surprise) that will tell you how bad or dangerous it is.
–> I drank the juice of 100 Lemons in the last 6 days, and yep I had some symptoms (nausea, headache) in the first 3 days, but now feeling better than ever.

Disclaimer: Drinking lemon water or pure lemon juice can cause tooth decay, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, and all kinds of reflux symptoms, because of the acid in the citrus fruit. The lemon itself is very acid (pH 2.5) but has an alkalizing effect on the human body. Meaning – once the lemon juice is digested and metabolized, lemon juice produces alkaline byproducts, which make the urine more alkaline.

Try me!

This post is to remind me and you, that we just have to “keep going”.

Our hardest times often lead us to our greatest moments in life.

We really don’t know how strong we are, until being strong is the only option we have.

The point when it’s just the same

Sometimes you fight so much for something or someone, that you reach a point when anything and everything becomes ‘the same’.

The same in the sense that it doesn’t matter.

It doesn’t matter to you if you get it or not.

It doesn’t matter if that deal gets done or not.

It doesn’t matter if that person loves you back or not.

A way to find yourself

Being yourself is a journey of getting to know your real self.

It takes a continuous effort to learn more about who you are and even more effort to just being yourself.

Because other people have expectations of who you are and who you should be.

Society expects you to be the way you fit in that system. To act in ‘their way’.

How would you have lived your life differently if you had a chance

​”If I had my life to live over again, I’d dare to make more mistakes next time. I’d relax. I’d limber up. I’d be sillier than I’ve been this trip. I would take fewer things seriously. I would take more chances, I would eat more ice cream and less beans.

I would, perhaps, have more actual troubles but fewer imaginary ones. You see, I’m one of those people who was sensible and sane, hour after hour, day after day.

Oh, I’ve had my moments. If I had to do it over again, I’d have more of them. In fact, I’d try to have nothing else—just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day.

I’ve been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot-water bottle, a raincoat, and a parachute. If I could do it again, I would travel lighter than I have.

If I had to live my life over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances, I would ride more merry-go-rounds, I would pick more daisies.”
