Lemon Water And Green Tea

Just last week I was lancing and draining terribly painful flair-ups.

But for the last three days I have started drinking green tea and lemon water. For the lemon water I take a whole fresh lemon, cut it in half and squeeze it into a cup of water. I use the entire lemon. I have one cup of green tea (nothing added to it) and one cup of this lemon water. The results have been amazing. I have NO flare-ups right now. No pain. I don't remember the last time I haven't had any pain. One was starting when I began doing this and it went away. After 9 years of not finding any relief I can't believe this worked.

I don't know if this will work for everybody but I think it's worth a try. Let me know if you try this and what the results are.

I Drink Green Tea All The Time & A Mornig Detox Too & Mine Dont Go Away After 10 Years !! So Your Very Lucky ....

Have you tried the lemon water?

My flare ups go away when I stop eating pork and I also started lemon water and they may have increased the healing.

That's great :)

I have HS and drink 3-4 cups of green tea every day. It's never done anything in terms of relief. It's most likely just coincidence that your flareups went away. Mine seem to come and go on their own with no rhyme or reason. I've tried to figure it out for the last 3 years. Nothing works.

I don't think it was the green tea as much as it was the lemon water. I used to drink green tea all the time and it did nothing for flare ups. I just added it because I started doing these two at the same time. I still haven't had any, this is the longest I've been without a flare up, so I'm thinking something must be working. It's the only part of my life and diet I've changed recently. I've read other reviews and people have said lemon water helps them too.
