The stomach accumulates toxin from undigested food, intestinal cells and dead bacteria that coats the inner lining of the stomach. This toxin buildup eventually lead to illnesses. By drinking lemon, the intestinal walls are stimulated which then lead to flushing out the toxins. The normal functioning of the colon aids in the proper absorption of nutrients in the body.

According to studies, a dehydrated lymphatic system is one of the leading cause of many illnesses including constipation, disturbed sleep, high or low blood pressure, stress, and lack of mental function.

I'm questioning the accuracy of the information on this site. In this article they say rheumatoid arthritis is degenerative which it is not. It is an auto immune disease.
