Cannot drink lemon with honey?

I think it is quite common to drink lemon with honey together. It is a good recipe for sore throat.

I am surprised to learn from 吴永志:不一样的自然养生法实践100问 page 89 that it is recommended not to drink lemon juice with honey for health purpose.

After digested, lemon will became alkaline in our body. But if we add honey, the sugar substance inside honey will turn lemon acidic, even though very little amount of honey. But if you have sore throat, drink honey lemon will help improve the condition. 250cc lemon juice with 25cc honey.

Honey lemon has been my favorite juice beside plain water when dine out, guess just honey or just lemon next time.

Sock peng, let's together change the habit for our health :D

Mr Ng Yat Yeong, if you drink lemon juice with your 'honey' around, of course okay, as long as you are not mixing both together (although I am not sure how do you want to mix lemon with your 'honey' in this case, pour onto her? What will happen then :p)

Aik Shuen, as from what I read, lemon is acidic but it will turned to alkaline after we digest it, so that's why it is good for our body. And it also mentioned, it is similar to some other sour-based fruit also. But those acidic additive will retain acidic although after indigestion e.g. low quality vinegar.

Skypaul, I will send you the recipe in email.
