Since lemons are fruits, and as such, food, I feel justified in blogging about other benefits of the wonderful lemon here.

Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim has taught me a long time ago, that lemons have incredible powers, aside from being health powerhouses, loaded with vitamin C and all other sorts of wonderful things.

But what Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim also points out, is that lemons are wonderful in helping your skin stay young and supple and healthy looking.  Before each meal, including at restaurants, Great Grandmaster Kim asks for some cut up lemon, then takes a wedge, and squeezes the juice into her palms and then gently massages it into her hands.  This not only thoroughly cleans your hands, it will also make the skin so smooth!

After you rub in the lemon juice, let your hands dry naturally in the air.  Don’t rush this step.  Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim advises to let the lemon juice and all its goodness soak in well.  Do not dry off your hands.  Let them dry naturally.

If you want to get the full “lemon benefit” in your life, have some cut up lemons and kosher salt in your shower, Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim says, ” just before you get into the shower, squeeze some lemon juice into a handful of Kosher Salt, and make a paste – use that instead of soap.”

“Here look at my hands, at my skin,” Great Grandmaster Kim offers, “See how smooth they are, just like baby skin.”

During lectures and seminars, Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim sometimes has her staff pass out out freshly cut lemon wedges, for everyone in attendance to try this.

I haven’t posted for a few days – I managed to get a cold in the summer! 

One of the things that works almost like magic:  the power of healing teas!  I learned most of them from Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim of Jung SuWon Academy.  She is a powerful Ki Master, and knows many many ancient healing secrets.  Word of caution:  Teas are no substitutes for doctor visits or medications!

I want to share with you some very simple recipes for getting better fast when you are under the weather:

Garlic tea: 

Crush some whole, peeled garlic cloves, maybe around 7 – 9 per cup, and put them into boiling water, enough for as many cups as you are planning to make of tea.  Let that boil for a while, add honey to taste, and drink as hot as you can handle.  Repeat a few times a day, and you’ll feel better fast!


Here is another tea for speed healing a cold:

To boiling water, add some slices of fresh ginger, don’t by shy now!  Also had a couple of slices of lemon, peel included (please wash well before using) and boil that for about 10 minutes, can also be boiled longer.  Add some natural unprocessed honey to taste, and enjoy.

You could, of course, alternate these teas!

Now, these teas are no substitutes for doctor visits, they are not medications, they are simply some of nature’s little helpers to make you feel better faster!  Enjoy!
