Staying Healthy with Nutrition by Elson M. Haas, MD and Buck Levin, PhD ($80.00, Celestial Arts, 2006)
- 2 Tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice
- 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup (up to 2 Tbsp if you want to drop less weight)
- 1/10 tsp cayenne pepper
- 8 oz pure spring water
- Mix and drink 8 to 12 glasses throughout the day. Eat or drink nothing else except water, laxative herb tea, and peppermint or chamomile tea.
- Keep lemonade in glass container (not plastic) or make it fresh each time. Rinse your mouth with water after each glass to prevent lemon juice from hurting enamel of your teeth.
