Q: I am a 59 yowm with a past medical history significant for an MI (in 2006), hypertension, and poorly controlled diabetes. I am recovering from recent periodontal surgery, and lost 6 lbs in the past week as a consequence of taking Oxycodone for postop pain. Nevertheless, my naturopath wants to start me on the Lemonade Diet.
I think he's crazy. Your thoughts?
BTW, are there are reputable well-controlled studies appearing in any peer-reviewed medical journals which corroborate the safety and efficacy of the Lemonade Diet? I haven't been able to find any.
A: Hi Dale! A lot of people do use/have used the Lemonade Diet to clean up thier body and get rid of illness. If you are unsure about your doctor's advice, perhaps you might want to get another opinion from another naturopath? This way, they can evaluate your past medical history and give you more advice.
As far as medical studies on the lemonade diet, I am not aware of any, however, it doesn't mean that there aren't. Because this is a more natural way of combating illness, it might not be first on the list of studies for the general medical community to study.
The best advice I can give would be to pick up this book and read about many others that have gone through this diet to help you understand the process better.
