Question: Why do you recommend the liver cleanse (a glass of lemon juice mixed in warm water) in the morning?
Can it be cold water? Can I drink it during another part of the day. Are limes as effective? My favourite summer drink is low sodium soda and fresh lime juice. Is this beneficial or is the soda harmful?

Answer: A nice mug of warm lemon water upon rising and/or prior to meals can cleanse your livers, stimulate the flow of digestive juices and reduce body acidity. Lemon in cold water isn’t as soothing to your digestive system. Low sodium soda, while thirst quenching, does not provide the same cleansing effect (however there is no harm in drinking it with meals).
