Lemon, Mint & Cucumber Water
Makes 1 gallon-size pitcher
- 12 cups of water
- 2 to 3 lemons, thinly sliced (you can also use limes or mix it up… using organic is best)
- 1 small cucumber of half of a medium to large cucumber, thinly sliced
- 10 to 15 mint leaves
- fresh ginger chopped, if you like a little spice
Tinse lemons and cucumbers very well before slicing very thinly. Add lemons, cucumber and mint to pitcher. Cover with water and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight (the flavors will be stronger if you refrigerate overnight, but I personally also like the lighter flavor. Por into a large glass over ice… it's very refreshing! This water tastes best on the day or teh day after you make it!
The juice of half a lemon in hot water first thing in the morning is a time-honored way to start the day, and an excellent wake up call for the liver. The sourness of the lemons triggers nerve and hormone activation to the liver and digestive system. Very helpful for those who suffer from sluggish bowels.
The spice that colors curries yellow was also used to dye the robes of Hindu priests. Turmeric has inpressive anti-inflammatory effects through the body, including the liver. Excellent for a liver virus or infection.
The cleansing virtues in beets juice is very healing for liver toxidity or bile ailments, like jaundice, hepatitis, food poisoning, dearrhea or vomiting.

The high content of iron in beet regenerates and reactivates the red blood cells and supplies fresh oxygen to the body. The copper content in beets help make the iron more available to the body. A great blood builder.
Beets are useful in helping cleanse the liver, and the liver helps metabolize fat.

Cucumber to Prevent Constipation and Keep Kidneys Healthy
Cucumbers are a perfect blend of both fiber and water. Therefore, it helps to protect your body from both constipation and kidney stones. By drinking cucumber juice, you can consume both fiber and water at the same time. Reports say that the majority of Americans prefer to have a cucumber rich salad regularly as it is a great way to increase your fiber intake.
Cucumber is also a good source of vitamin C, silica, potassium and magnesium; which all have their own health benefits. Cucumbers have an extraordinary amount of water (about 96%) that is naturally purified, thus making the water content much higher in quality than ordinary water. Cucumber skin contains high levels of vitamin A, so you will gain more nutrition if you eat the entire thing, skin and all.
