Intestinal issues with lemon water.

by Suzanne R.
(Phoenix, Arizona)

Several months ago I started the warm water and lemon juice (organic fresh squeezed) first thing in the morning.

I have to tell you first that I have, constipation from opiates, hence the reason I started this routine with the warm lemon juice water.

During a two week period, I started having issues with my stomach and intestines. I was experiencing, bloating, churning and gurgling through my stomach and bowels. That was the first week. Into the second week it turned into bloating, churning, gurgling, extreme cramping and explosive diarrhea. Needless to say, I quit doing the warm lemon juice water.

So, my reason for writing is, it is over 2 month's later and my condition has not stopped. I am still having the issues with my system once a week to once every two weeks. I would like to know if this is normal and will this problem come to an end, you know, work it's way out?

Also, would you say I should resume the warm lemon juice water or stay away from it?

I should inform you that I come from a mother with a life long condition of I.B.S., but, myself and 3 sister's have not had a problem with I.B.S. and we, my sister's and I, are over the age of 50 now.
