Lemon Water

by - 10/21/2015

This week I have not been feeling great and woke up yesterday with a sore throat. When I went to do my normal Facebook scroll, I came across this wonderful article about the benefits of lemon water.

Some of the benefits of Lemon Water are a boosted immune system and antibacterial/antiviral properties. 'Lemon juice is rich in Vitamin C, which helps strengthen the immune system and fights cold and flu'.

I am not sure If i am coming down with a cold (seems like it since I keep sneezing and my nose is stuffy) or if I am having an issue with my throat.

I have a long history with strep throat and generally when I am in a certain emotional state I get strep throat. Crazy right? Fun fact: when I was a toddler my mom traveled for work and in about a year and a half I had strep throat 13 times and 22 throat cultures. The doctor wanted to make sure my strep was actually going away after finishing the antibiotics and it was. Once my mom quit her traveling job, I stopped getting strep throat and went a full year without it. I still have my tonsils since my doctor knew it wasn't my tonsils that was making me sick. It was my emotions.

So in order to fight what is going on with my body and for preventative measures, I am going to drink a cup of warm/room temperature lemon water every morning.

I took today off from the gym because my health comes first and I rather heal fast and be able to get back in the gym stronger than ever than ignore whatever is going on with my body.

Take a look at the link above. Lemon water is truly beneficial especially when consumed on an empty stomach first thing in the morning.
