Pharmaceutical companies don’t want to admit this but natural remedies can sometimes be much stronger than drugs and expensive medical treatments. Bu if they admit it how can they profit from it?
Natural ingredients are everywhere around us and are cheap and readily available, we just need to learn how to properly use them.
One simple example is the amazing combination of lemon and baking soda which in some cases has proven to be more effective than chemotherapy, and it has no side-effects.
People are unaware of the power of this incredible mixture because the big companies want to keep it a secret and have so far been successful at it.
Lemons are powerful anti-carcinogenic agents and have a number of other useful properties. They are very effective in the treatment of cysts and tumors as well.
Read on to learn more about the benefits of this citrus fruit:
1. Stimulates weight loss
Lemons boost metabolism and enhance glutathione function.
2. Cleanses the teeth
Applying the inside of lemon peel in the mouth cleanses the teeth and kills of bad bacteria.
3. Treats toothache

4. Treats acne
The antibacterial properties of lemons makes it a good natural remedy for acne and blackheads.
5. Helps detoxify the liver
Lemons help stimulate the liver.
6. Helps restore the body`s pH
Its alkaline properties promote balanced pH levels.
7. Fights off cold, flu or fever
Lemons boost immunity due to their high vitamin C content.
8. Keeps blood pressure in check

Amazingly, this citrus fruit also cures cancer! According to recent studies, eating citrus fruits, especially lemons, has the ability to both prevent and even cure cancer. Combining it with baking soda normalizes the body`s pH and thus inhibit cancer`s growth.
The most recent proof which supports these claims comes from Europe. A recent control-study confirmed that if you eat 4 or more portions (150gr) of lemon a week you can reduce the chances for developing cancer. It will lower the risk of throat cancer by 58 %, oral/pharyngeal cancer by 53 %, stomach cancer by 31 %, and colorectal cancer by 18 %.
The study didn’t find a connection between high intake of lemons and lowered risk of breast cancer, but an American study claims otherwise. According to them, women who consume 75 grams of grapefruit a day (fruit or juice) have a lower risk of breast cancer by 22%, if they had never used hormone-substitute therapy. It has to be remembered that this positive effect on your organism comes from an average consumption of 525-600gr. of lemons per week, which means that this is how much you need to consume to keep cancer at bay, or prevent metastasis.
On the other hand, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) alkalizes your body and prevents the cancer from spreading to other organs.
The Cancer Research published a study in 2009 which revealed that alkalizing the area around the tumor can reduce the number of metastasis in certain cases. An even more recent study, which is still underway, from the University of Arizona Cancer Center will look into the effect of baking soda on patients suffering from breast cancer and is hopeful that it will yield positive results.
