This testimony is taken from the official website of Crystal Davis and the one you are about to read is his personal experience …
“It is said that drinking this hot beverage made from honey, lemon and water is nothing short of “miraculous”, but since they are often” skeptical “, I wanted to do this experiment on myself for 12 months and see if it’s really as miraculous as they say…
To my surprise and delight I can tell you that I have “converted” to the use of this drink for the following reasons:
1. I did not have a cold, flu or some gastro-intestinal diseases throughout the year.
Now that I think about it well, all my life I have suffered from disorders in the throat and had frequent tonsillitis, so much so that it seemed to collect all that passed. In a large family, where there are many children, there is always someone who is sick to alternate moments. I am very happy because now I have become “immune”, even when a virus or flu hits all my family.
But I must make a confession … there were days when I completely skipped intake of the drink, even when I felt the first sign of flu symptoms (sneezing a lot in a day, fatigue, sore suspected stomach, etc.), but nothing materialized. Sure, I had some days in which I was more tired, some headaches, but nothing more. As soon as I went back up to speed again with a daily intake, all of this has stopped happening. Now it has become so much a healthy habit that I started to take with me honey and lemon while away from home and stay at friends or hotels. Should I be concerned about my “mania” or proud of me ?!
2. I do not need to drink coffee and have become a morning person.
The first thing I do in the morning when you wake up is drink water with lemon and honey, and this has become a usual practice now. Besides me is of great help because I do not have those pesky headaches, I have energy for longer and smile more easily. Usually in the morning I take at least an hour to open my second eye, and I was often sulky with people, but fortunately this bad “habit” has vanished.😉
3. The people around me are getting healthier – this is my greatest reward.
This was the thing that took me more time and energy: encourage my family to use this drink and “convince them” that honey and lemon could help prevent some of their most frequent illnesses and states flu. But after playing to be a nurse and have prepared for them my magic potion, I can finally see the benefits. It’s a good feeling to know that I can help people who love to feel better through something so simple and affordable for everyone. It became a sort of super-nurse and this is nothing short of impressive.
What follows is my recipe:
I generally use the juice of half a fresh lemon and a teaspoon of organic honey, put in a standard cup of freshly boiled water (water must have cooled slightly, but it must still be warm enough to melt the honey well). Then I add a little cold water, so that we can drink the drink immediately when I wake up.
However, the taste of the drink depends very much on the lemon and honey. Some lemons are juiciest, most bitter others, certain types of the sweetest honey, others less, so just experimenting you will find the right balance! For example, to start the half lemon treatment may be too much, my family it uses a quarter.
Why does it work? Well, according to many researches and web sites that talk about health, there are at least 9 great benefits of drinking hot water with honey and lemon every morning.
Below you’ll find my favorites:
a) It maintains bowel regularity and protects the body from infection of the urinary tract.
Drink this on an empty stomach drink in the morning stimulates the digestive system, it is designed to hydrate the colon, in addition, the combination of honey-lemon-water keeps constipation at bay. It also acts as a diuretic, cleanses the urinary tract and protects it against infection. This I verified and I can confirm with absolute certainty!
b) It improves digestion.
Every part of this drink helps in the digestive process: the lemon helps the liver in the production of bile, so you can better digest more complex foods, honey is antibacterial, protects against infections and also helps the stomach mucus production , contributing to the elimination of any toxins. For this reason also it helps to maintain a healthy and balanced weight.
c) Dona health and beauty.
The lemon has many benefits for the skin, but also helps to purify the blood by promoting the production of new cells that act as “degreasing” agents. Honey dissolved in water has the restorative function, antibacterial and collagen thereby increasing the tone, brightness and beauty of the skin.
I can assure you that this drink is really amazing and its benefits are more than good for your health, I highly recommend it. Also its taste is nothing short of delicious!
