THE SECRET OF NO HASSLE, EASY BODY CLEANSING AND FASTING

Once I fasted until sundown. It was very cleansing!

There are foods that cleanse the body! The juice of fully ripe citrus, which has hung on the tree for the full three years, (hard to find outside of a California garden or your Healthfood store, BTW,) is one of them. If you want to get rid of toxins, if you have used anti-biotics, have low body energy, if your digestion tasks your mental crispness, and you zone out after lunch.... if you have slow body functions, constipation and bad breath, acne -- if you have any incipient disease, like aching joints, or have a frequent, white coated tongue or headaches when you exercise, you have to clean out the colon.

Colons are like plumbing pipes with crevices, and the recesses become loaded with stuck stuff, and often their walls have ancient deposits. A few days on raw juices with some psyllium seed powder (metamucil) will get it nice and healthy again! What is more, you can do the cleansing without hunger!

Start easy,  in a pleasant, no hassle manner. Do a good cleansing diet where you can eat as much as you want of certain power healthfoods that are also body cleansers. Do this for five days a week, a gentle healthfood diet.

On week-ends, go on a juice fast.You don't work Sat/Sun, right? Get to Wal-mart with 29$ and get the juicer. Weekdays do diet below, or if there are specific needs, I have the SOLAR WEIGHT LOSS DIET, ARTHRITIS DIET, many others, ask me about these. I'll email them to you no problem. On weekends, mix raw juices with psyllium and a few drops of licorice extract to banish hunger. That's the fasting part.

FIVE DAYS A WEEK, EAT YOUR HEAD OFF!

All the salads, vegies, fruits, proteins you want. Sprouted raw almonds, by the half pound! Grains are eaten with greens, proteins are eaten with greens, vegies, non starchy vegies. And  fruits are eaten separately, sour fruits with sour, semi sweet with its own kind, sugary with its own kind. NO SUGARS/fruits are ever eaten with proteins. Combining is important. Eat vegies/salads with grains. Or eat proteins with greens/vegies, nothing else like grains, sugars. Eat FRUITS alone. Desserts are eaten alone, a few hours before a meal, not after.

WEEKENDS: SERIOUS FASTING CAN BE DONE NOW!

BREAKFAST- Have an all fruit juice smoothie, fresh squeezed, grape, pear, apple. Stir in psyllium or unflavored Metamucil. Or PSYLLIUM plus herbs, available at healthfood store under many different names. Brunch is the same -- juice w. a tbsp of psyllium stirred in, and ten drops of licorice extract. Makes all hunger or munchies depart! FENNEL* or green licorice plant, added to any other juice has an added benefit; it removes hunger.  BANISHES the sensation of HUNGER!

LUNCH - green juice, salads of all kinds wi. celery, smal pc beet, carrots, greens like collards, spinach. psyllium or metamucil unflavored. A half hour later, a big salad w. seeds, sprouts.FENNEL in salads also removes hunger.

SNACK- avocado mashed into a tomato, onion, cilantro, jalapeno juice, to make a liquid guacamole. CHEW THIS DRINK as it needs saliva to digest....or it won't digest, and you'll burp. Some fennel in a carrot/celery juice.

NIGHT- filling, high protein raw green juices with a glob of healthfood store four strains of culture in the yogurt only if you can't sleep for munchies I.E. chronic low blood sugar. Use Mountain High original flavor, not the small fat-free cups. Mountain High is one that's available in super market which has four strains of culture. Most others only have acidophilus, it's not enuf. Healthfood stores always have at least one really fine yogurt with multiple strains, bifidus, acidophillus and others. Throw pineapple juice in for sweetener. But go easy. SWEETS increase appetite!

GO TO BED on the juice w. yogurt mix. Acid fruits mix well with yogurt, not sweet fruits. The calcium in yogurt is soperific. Put a few oranges or slice pineapple thru your Wal-mart juicer, --- if citrus, you can add some of the peel --- then add yogurt to what comes out.  Licorice extract helps you get through the night, too.

WHEN JUICING, TAKE ALL SLUSH from juicer and put on a compost pile, or in a bucket to put on the pile next time you go outside. Rinse machine, use a brush if it has a basket w. small holes; put upside down to dry in air. Don't put it away on shelf. Leave them on dry rack, ready to use. The easier we can make this the better.

NOTE: If you cook fresh meat for animals, some of the slush would be good. They can't have onions or garlic, but greens, celery, carrots and a little beet would be fine for them. Drop the vegies in cooking meat.

*FENNEL is available at all ITALIAN GROCERY stores, it looks like celery with fern on top. Posh super markets carry it, too. FINOCHIO. Licorice flavored celery.

MY THIRTY DAY  40-DAY FAST by JOHN Mc KAY publisher of HEYOKA MAGAZINE

Detox Juice Recipe By Dr. Ben Kim

A freshly pressed vegetable juice that is meant to stimulate the elimination of toxins from your body should have the following properties:

1. The ability to encourage movement of waste products through your intestines.

2. The ability to encourage your digestive organs to release digestive juices that can help to optimally break down recently ingested food.

3. The ability to draw toxins out of your tissues.

With these properties in mind, here is one of the most effective detox juice recipes that I know of:

Jerusalem Artichoke, Cilantro, and Radish Detox Juice Recipe

Ingredients:

4 Jerusalem artichokes (girasole.) Get the tubers at HFS, plant half! You'll never lack them again.
2 handfuls of fresh cilantro, from Mexican market.
4 radishes Washed well
3 carrots   "             " as a carrier for the other juices.
1 tablespoon of green food powder that contains chlorella [1]

Directions:

Use a juicer [2] to press all ingredients except green food powder into a vegetable juice.

Combine juice and green food powder in a bottle with a secure lid and shake well for 10 or more seconds. Enjoy within an hour of making this effective detox juice.

Notes:

*Jerusalem artichokes are rich in the soluble fiber insulin, which is known to encourage healthy bowel function.

*Cilantro and chlorella are regularly recommended by many health practitioners, myself included, for purposes of detoxification.  They chelate heavy metals in the body.

*Radishes are known to stimulate the release of bile from the gall bladder. Bile is needed for optimal digestion of fat. Make it a point never to eat a fatty meat without a radish along for the ride. Wash radishes when they come from store, sit them in inch of water in dish in fridge.

AND LAST, a little poem, or POME as I call the JOKEY ONES

A very CHUBBY but strangely abstinant, new age pal wrote me that he was
fasting on cilantro water to chelate his heavy metals. He is a  guitarist,
the health problems he has may have something to do with an Electric
guitar, metal strings, Heavy metals? SO I wrote the poor guy back, he was
like on his fortieth day of this fast and was preparing to go onto a
totally raw diet of squirrel food, nuts and fruits, etc.
 

POME TO A FASTING PAL
____________________

The munchies are quite easy to dump.
There's really nothing to it.
Eat protein meals and vegies too
yankee soldier long time chew it.

But eat one single bite of starch
or milk which turns to sugar--
your pancreas will balk and lurch
and make you spit up boogers.

No silky foods allowed but relax,
silky girlish thighs are on this diet.
No starchy white potato, bread or wine
but white skinned gals in bed are FINE,

You crave chocolate fudge by the tray?
GET YOUR SWEETS SOME OTHER WAY!
And when you're thin and feeling yinner
have a pork chop for your nightly dinner!

Get the hang of meat and sex
and I swear your pancreas will relax!
This fasting monk stuff has to stop!
Or there'll be a gravestone up on top!

And so, for dinner, a crusty TUNA.
A little CUKE, then be a honeymoonER!
Remeber songs you played that guitar-ON?
stroke that girl, enjoy a hard on.

New age diets are a dime a dozen
They worked for every yogi cousin.
The problem is by thirty four.
THEY were all AT DEATH'S DOOR!

So yogi schmogie, no ifs ands or buts,
enough of raisins, fruit and nuts!
SOLID PROTEIN three times a day!
Washed down with vegies by the tray

And you will snap right back, be young,
Make girl and guitar come unstrung!
Have I motivated you to DIET?
IT SOUNDS SO GOOD -- DAMN! I SHOULD TRY IT!
