Grow Youthful: How to Slow Your Aging and Enjoy Extraordinary Health

Ailment: Age spots (liver spots)

Remedy: Lemon juice

Lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, sour whey, Swedish bitters and kombucha are all invaluable aids to improving digestion. Try each of them to find which works best for you.

Mix a teaspoon, or a few teaspoons of fresh lemon (or lime) juice in a glass of water, and drink it 20 minutes before a meal, or at any time. It helps with the digestion of food (good to take before a meal) and a wide range of digestive problems, and contributes to general health and longevity.

You can also use lemon juice and ACV on your skin. The acidity is beneficial, promoting acidic bacteria and inhibiting fungi. The acidity also inhibits demodex mites living in hair follicles and oil glands. Almost every adult has these mites, but in some people their population gets out of control, or their skin reacts to the mites.

Apply undiluted ACV or lemon juice directly on the skin for skin fungus, psoriasis and other skin conditions.

I had some age spots on the backs of my hands that slowly appeared over several years. At first I wasn't too worried because I thought they were just freckles, but they continued to grow to nearly 1 cm in size, and made my hands look old. I have applied apple cider vinegar, ACV mixed with onion juice, and lemon juice to the spots. They lightened within a couple of weeks, and after two months had just about disappeared completely. I think the ACV and the lemon juice pretty much have the same effect, a natural acid on the skin. I also drink them in water every day. My skin is so much better. The onion juice feels good, I know it also helps. But it stinks, so you can really only use it at night before going to bed.
