One day, Crystal Davis, a U.S citizen embarked on a mission to drink a mixture of hot water, honey, and lemon every morning for 12 months.
The main goal was to ascertain if the drink could do wonders to her body as many people claimed.
She narrates her story:
“Until a few years ago I used to buy lemon and honey drinks in the pharmacies when I had the flu.
Of course, they helped me a lot, but I must admit that I was a bit skeptical when I took this challenge. However, it is quite different to drink real lemon juice.
It is so much better and healthier than the powdered one you buy in the pharmacies.
Back on the subject, I decided to drink hot water with lemon and honey for 12 months, every morning on an empty stomach. I was wondering if this drink can do miracles to my body as everyone claimed.
And now I can say that I am very happy. I haven’t had a cold for a whole year. Also I haven’t had a stomach flu or any other disease, even though I sometimes felt as if I would catch something, but it did not happen.
In fact, I was so amazed with this drink that I started taking it everywhere with me, even when I traveled somewhere.
Also, I have become a morning person and have no need for coffee. I have more energy and feel happier in the morning, which was not the case.
Before, it took me an hour after waking up to actually see again. People around me say that I am now much more comfortable to be around.
I generally use half a fresh lemon and a teaspoon of organic honey in a classic cup. To prepare this potion, first you need to boil the water, and leave it to cool a bit, so that the honey can dissolve.
Now pour the lemon juice and drink this drink immediately after waking up. Note that sometimes the lemon juice can be more or less acidic, therefore if the lemon is too sour feel free to add some extra honey to this drink to improve the taste.
Also, if half a lemon is too much for you, then in the beginning you can use quarter of a lemon, until you get used to.”
