Dr. Ann Wigmore states in her book, Be Your Own Doctor, “The watermelon rind has the richest proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Vitamins A, B, and C are found in the rind, along with their respective enzymes and other elements. Melons aid in the elimination of uric acid, and are beneficial to the urinary tract, bladder and kidney.
“The ‘water of life’ is found in abundance in watermelons, and they will prove to be the safest means of cleaning the body’s waste, while at the same time providing nourishment. Watermelon is a wonderful aid for the person with an acid condition, as it helps balance the body to becoming more alkaline.”
So, why spend your money on vitamin pills and other concoctions for cleansing your body if you can have the detox elixir via the delicious watermelon juice? The juice is so refreshing, sweet (you might want to add some water if your body reacts to concentrated sugar) and soooo tasty, it is the REAL THING, for pennies to a glass.
Once in a while I drink only watermelon juice for a few days. It does wonders to my skin, to my overall well-being and to my grocery budget as well.
However, if this does not inspire you to go out and get a watermelon, you might want to see what else you can do with a watermelon: click at the link to check out watermelon art, amazing - www.rawbc.org/articles/watermelon_art.html.
