Love Lemons! My Lemon Limerick & Latest Luxury!

Lemons Rock!

Lemon juice in water – sliced lemons in water – iced herbal tea with lemon – or warm water first thing in the morning with lemon? ALL good! Very alkalizing – fights Acidosis! Keep reading for my LEMON LIMERICK and my latest little-known lemon luxury!

According to  TheAlternativeDaily.com:

“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, grains, animal products), 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 from eating lemons:

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!

This is from me –

I’ve been “zesting” lemons for quite some time now (I use organic lemons). Before squeezing them to get out the lemon juice I’d use a fine grater and zest off the yellow for the potently healthy limonene in the skin. All good. Heard about freezing the whole lemon then grating it to use the pith (white pulp) and the seeds, as there’s B17 (laetrile) in them thar seeds (just like the familiar Grapefruit Seed Extract that is a natural anti-biotic/viral/fungal/parasite). I liked that idea – so I froze two lemons. Two months later, there they were, in my freezer untouched. Hmmmm…..

In the hundreds of things I read each week, somewhere I came across the concept of pureed lemon. Yup, the whole thing. Peel, pith, pits and pulp! Loved the idea, mostly because it’s easy and no waste! Washed the lemons, trimmed off the little ends, cut in a few pieces, pureed in my Blendtec high-speed blender (like the Vitamix but less expensive). I may have added a bit of high-alkaline ionized water to get it started – I really can’t remember. Pureed them all!! Poured the puree into a couple of widemouth jars and set them in the fridge.

The pectin in the pith is particularly beneficial not just for digestion but to absorb toxins in your digestive tract and colon – this is always a good thing, whether or not you’re plagued with problems. I like a good thing when I see it…

Well, well, well… next day I was thrilled and delighted (I’m pretty easy to please)! The lemon puree was fairly solidified, like a jelly is solidified – because, of course, from the pectin!!! So, basically, I made a pectin that could subsequently be blended with other fruits to make a jam! I promptly defrosted some fresh local ripe mango and pureed it with some solidified lemon pectin to try this out, and poured THAT into a few small jars! Mmmmm – not bad at all!! A bit of a bitter edge from the bitter pith and seeds, but I’m pretty hardcore when it comes to health (some of you know that about me already) and I don’t mind it – you could sweeten it more with honey if you like.

So, back to lemon in the morning – I’ve been making a morning green drink – either with fresh veggies and green powders or just green powders – and adding a good tablespoon of this lemon pectin – for me, the green drinks are plenty sweet to counter the bitter pith and seeds and the strong taste of lemon is delicious!

So I wrote a Lemon Limerick for you!

There were 8 lemons with zest –
I washed and cut up to ingest –
Set the blender on fine,
Pureed to a grind,
Lemon pectin drinks are the best!

Enjoy your lemons!

My Rife 101 Prevention Protocol of Programs

Folks ask me all the time if I use the Rife 101 Machine and what I use it for. Of course I use this bioactive frequency generator – or I wouldn’t be selling it! All the products I carry I have used and found useful for improving and maintaining my health and the Rife 101 is part of my “system”.

Tina Rappaport feeling good!

Life is good!

The first time I used it was in 2007 after a long plane flight. I’m a very small person (barely 5 feet tall, 100 lbs) and the airline seats are all wrong – the lumbar is in the wrong place, the head rest too! I am often in trouble after a flight no matter how I sit or what cushions I use, as my joints are very precariously balanced (see MY STORY for the full details). I ended up with a terrible hard-as-a-rock elongated knot in the top of my back near the right shoulder where it seems I have scar tissue in the muscles from the joint trouble in my younger years. This spot had been my nemesis for a long time. I was contemplating taking a muscle relaxer (and being loopy from it) when I tried the Rife 101 on the Joint Pain program. One hour later it was 90% better! No drugs. I was sold.

Understanding that I don’t have a chronic illness, I’ve used the Rife 101 for various things that cropped up – warded off colds after feeling the first sniffle, eliminated pain with the Bone Trauma program, controlled my joint pain and improved the circulation in my legs tremendously. But the most dramatic has been the improvement in my Adrenal Glands. When first tested, my Adrenal Glands were hardly functioning due to stress and my naturopath doctor suggested supplements. Life threw me a bunch of curves, one after the other, and I just couldn’t add in the Adrenal supplement regimen very well. After developing a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) my doc told me I’d better get serious because the UTI was NOT from NOT drinking enough water, but rather she felt it was a warning that my immune system was shot from Adrenal Exhaustion. In time I got a bit better (just a bit) with the supplements, taking them at least twice a week (supposed to take them twice a day!), but I did start using the Rife 101 on the Adrenal Stimulant program. For about 6 months I did it at least twice a day, and sometimes I also ran the Glands program (it covers them all and they are all inter-related anyway).

When my Adrenals were re-tested I knew it was the Rife 101 working it’s magic when the doc told me, “Your Adrenals are better than mine now!”

Understanding I have life-long, chronic joint issues (mostly under control now – read more in MY STORY) here is the list of Rife 101 programs I try to run weekly as health maintenance, prevention and to ward off anything brewing. Is it working? If I don’t develop any issues, and I have no cholesterol, sugar or other “chronic” disease issues, you tell me!
