How to make a health-promoting Citrus Peel drink
Updated: May 2022
A simple citrus drink recipe for supporting immune health and detoxification
One lemon, preferably organic (most people can find a lemon tree nearby).
A box of dandelion and milk thistle tea bags (Healtheries "Detox Teabags" will do the job)
A box of lemon and ginger teabags (Healtheries again)
A box of green tea bags (these should all be available in most supermarkets or organic stores)
NZ Blackcurrant (1-2 rounded teaspoons per day). (You could mix several teaspoons into the water when preparing the jug of ingredients).
A bottle of Nucell
Water that is preferably fluoride and chlorine-free
Add half a sliced lemon or more to a one to a two-litre jug of water in the fridge.
Add two of each of the teabags to the jug. These herbs assist the detoxification process.
Add 2-4 heaped teaspoons of Metabolic Energiser.
Add a generous dash of Nucell to the jug of water or a spoonful per glass when serving.
Allow the mix to soak overnight so that the teabags and the lemon skins have time to infuse the water with their delicious goodness.
Drink this throughout the day. I add it to my drink bottle when exercising. It is refreshing to guzzle down when hot and thirsty.
Eat a slice or two of the lemon now and then each day. (Soaking the slices for a day or two removes some bitterness).
Handy Tip: freeze the lemon (you can store a season's worth this way), defrost it, then slice it up. The freezing breaks the cells of the hard peel, releasing the wonderful nutrients contained within.
This drink is acidic, so please do not sip it as it could erode tooth enamel. Guzzle down a few times a day. Swill a little baking soda about the mouth immediately after
. You could put a little baking soda into the drink beforehand to neutralise the acidity. Add according to taste.
Enamel can and does remineralise if given the right environment. Brush your teeth twice a day. Use an alkalising toothpaste such as one with baking soda in it. Ensure your diet includes calcium and other minerals so that there is plenty of calcium and other minerals in your saliva, even when sleeping. If you want to be sure of your true mineral status get this test done.
