I'm thinking it's not good to drink it all day long, but at intervals, where you can rinse your mouth out afterward. Especially helpful if you could rinse with a little baking soda after too.
I upped mylemon juice last summer when I thought I had a kidney stone from taking too much Vit D. Funny, but when I went to the dentist, they asked if I'd been doing a lot of citrus! I started to get mini cavities in a couple spots.
So, that's my thinking...I've only done a little research though --but from my own experience....
i would guess that rinsing/brushing after lemon water, like after any food or drink, would be a good thing.
MaryKay, did the citrus help your kidney stone issue? I had recurrent kidney stones for a few years (yowch) til i found out our water had too much calcium.... now we get spring water, low calcium, high bicarb, and this year no kidney stones, thank heavens......
I do believe the citrus/lemon helped. I also was doing a lot of apple cider vinegar for the month. I was undiagnosed, but had a pain in my back for about a month. It was lambsquarter season (high in oxalates) and I was blaming it on that. I had also started taking lots of Vit D just prior to it, and although i did wonder if that did it, when I did a search, all I could find, was that the only way kids get kidney stones is if they're supplemented with high Vit D - just one reference. So...I dismissed it.
Later on, after I had a blood test and my Vit D was too high (118) my doc said that I'd better stop taking the D because it might give me kidney stones. I never even told her thought I might have had them.
So, in a nutshell, yes, I think it did help.
Our well water is also high in calcium, I suspect. Do you take magnesium? Magnesiummight be helpful to you for kidney stones. I believe in water soluble ionic angstrom magnesium only. Well, and epsom salt baths don't hurt.
