Disadvantages of drinking hot water with honey and lemon:
1. It can make us addicted to it, which would create another problem for health. When we drink something regularly, our body will get used to it and will need more of that thing in the future.
2. We may suffer from cold when the weather is too cold or windy (note: this is not like normal flu). This happens because our immunity becomes weak due to what we have been drinking for a long time causing excessive mucus secretion.
We may not feel the symptoms when it is too cold, but if we expose ourselves to heat (e.g., sunbathing), the symptoms will appear immediately.
3. It would be dangerous or risky if we are taking medication on daily basis, especially for stomach-related issues like gastritis and ulcer (note: this is not like normal heartburn). This is because honey contains sugar which can make our body more acidic, thus making our condition worse especially for those who have ulcers. We should also avoid eating citrus fruits because they contain acid that makes us even more acidic.
4. Drinking hot water with lemon before going to bed may disturb our sleep, causing insomnia due to the stimulating effect of Vitamin C in lemon juice.
5. It can cause dehydration especially when we drink a lot during hot seasons or the time of Aries.
6. The excessive acidity in lemon juice causes gastric problems when it mixes with the gastric contents in our stomach, which leads to an increase in ammonia concentration which can be harmful to our nerves. Furthermore, drinking too much lemon juice may also cause fever due to its effect on lowering body temperature after absorption into blood vessels.
7. Drinking water that is too hot may cause stomach-related issues, e.g., diarrhea and vomiting because heat will destroy some living enzymes found in food thus reducing protein assimilation affecting bowel movement. Moreover, drinking ice cold water will solidify fats in our digestive system, thus creating more putrefaction and harmful effects to our body.
8. It is one of the leading causes of tooth decay because most people will not let it stay in their mouth long enough before swallowing it. Besides that, lemon juice contains acid which is bad for teeth enamel (note: normal stomach-related issues like heartburn are not included).
9. Drinking hot water with honey can be dangerous for pregnant mothers due to its stimulating effect on the uterus; thus affecting the development of the fetus inside the womb. However, taking honey orally will not produce any problem since it does not enter into circulation through the bloodstream during the pregnancy period (only when taken intravenously).
10. If we add rock salt into hot water with lemon, we may suffer from hypertension and kidney problems.
11. It can disturb our sleep due to the stimulating effect of Vitamin C in lemons (note: this is not like normal heartburn). This may be related to circadian rhythm (body clock) disturbance or melatonin secretion, thus affecting our sleeping pattern.
12. Drinking too much hot water with lemon during summer can cause vomiting due to its excessive cooling effect on our body which makes our digestive system slow down the movement of food causing indigestion and vomiting.
It is better if we wait for a while after drinking such drinks before eating anything else because it takes time until digestion starts again in order to avoid having indigestion.
13. Drinking too much hot water with lemon, especially during winter, can cause hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid gland) due to its excessive cooling effect on our body which leads to a decrease in metabolism, thus slowing down digestion.
This may lead to weight gain and depression since the hormones secreted by the thyroid gland affect emotional stability. It is better if we drink warm or room temperature water during winter instead of cold drinks.
However, drinking cold water helps send blood vessels into contraction; therefore, it reduces heat in our body caused by the high temperature outside the environment thus making us feel more comfortable when exposed to hot weather conditions.
14. Drinking too much hot water with lemon may disturb our sleep because it contains Vitamin C which stimulates the brain to keep us awake. It is better not to take lemons before bedtime to avoid insomnia.
15. Drinking too much hot water with honey can cause hypertension, diarrhea, and vomiting due to its stimulating effect on the uterus.
16. Drinking boiled water during summer may cause vomiting, dehydration, and hypoglycemia (an abnormally low level of glucose in the blood) due to excessive cooling effects on the body.
17. Drinking too much cold water during winter may make your stomach shrivel up like a prune it produces free radicals that destroy all of the good bacteria found in our gastrointestinal tract. This will damage our digestive system and lower our immune system function, thus making us prone to bacterial and viral infections.
18. Drinking too much cold water during winter can lead to a decreased metabolism rate due to its excessive cooling effect on the body which lowers the temperature inside our stomach causing a decrease in hydrochloric acid secretion required for digestion, so food goes slowly through the intestinal tract causing constipation as well as compacting effects on the colon.
19. It makes people become “sugar addicted” because it contains 26% sugar (HFCS usually) – this is why some people cannot drink anything else but lemon juice with water even though they think that it has many benefits for the body as well as the digestive system.
20. Drinking too much cold water during winter may cause hypothyroidism due to the excessive cooling effect of ice on the body which lowers the temperature inside our stomach causing a decrease in thyroid hormones secreted by the thyroid gland, thus affecting metabolism, digestion, muscle strength, brain function, and emotional stability. This is why some people become “lazy”, weak, depressed, or frequently fatigued.
21. Drinking too much hot water with lemon during summer can cause hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid gland) because it contains Vitamin C which stimulates the secretion of insulin hormone from the pancreas causing an increase in blood glucose level. This will affect kidney function as well as pancreatic enzyme secretion required for food digestion producing free radicals that damage the kidneys.
22. Drinking boiled water during winter may cause vomiting, diarrhea, and hypoglycemia due to excessive cooling effect on the body, thus lowering the temperature inside our stomach causing a decrease in hydrochloric acid secretion required for digestion so food goes slowly through the intestinal tract causing constipation as well as compacting effects on the colon. This will affect all of our internal organs including the pancreas, spleen, liver, gallbladder, stomach, etc.
