  • Use Flex Seed OR Flex oil to stop these, as well as to cure diabetes.

  • Mr. Hazari, as per ayurveda lemon has all the benefits discussed in this forum & many more. But it has 'cooling effect' as one of it's natural properties. That gives yo the associated pains. Hence to get the desired benefits without the pains, you have to balance the effect of coolness in lemon juice. For that you need to balance it with some ingredient which has warm/hot natural property. So,one can take some ginger/ginger juice (one-2 teaspoon ginger juice for a glass of lemon water)/ 1/2 tsp dry ginger powder. Alternatively, you can take 1-2 cloves of garlic along with your lemon water. Joint pains/cramps etc. should not worry you thereafter. Enjoy your morning lemon water with my blessings !!!
