Diets for Your Inner Self

Apr 25, 2008
Diets can achieve amazing results if followed faithfully, and here are three excellent ones: a cleansing diet, a health diet and a reducing diet.

A Cleansing Diet

There are several good ways to cleanse the system. One way is to stay from five to ten days on a mono diet, that is, to eat as much as one likes of any one of the following:

(a) Watermelon - especially good for cleansing the kidneys. If you feel too hungry, eat a slice of whole wheat bread or whole wheat wafers.

(b) Grated raw apples and herb tea with lemon - especially good for people suffering from dysentery, colitis or sprue. (The apples should be grated on plastic, glass or stainless-steel graters.)

(c) Fresh grapes, unsprayed, in order to avoid danger of poisoning. This mono diet is beneficial for the liver.

(d) Coconut water only - cleanses the liver and alkalizes the system.

(e) Papaya with lemon juice - very good for the intestinal tract.

(f) Grapefruit and/or orange juice - alkalizes the system.

A less rigid cleansing diet was sent me by one of my students who lives on a farm near New York City, where she grows her own vegetables and fruit. By doing some Yoga breathing exercises and Yoga postures and keeping this diet, she completely overcame a bad asthmatic condition. Here it is:

A Daily Diet for Optimal Health

On Arising take 1 glass of water with fresh lemon juice.

For breakfast -- Any herb tea or coffee substitute or raw cow's, goat's, butter-, or soya-bean milk. Whole grain cereal sweetened with honey or date or raw sugar,
or 1 slice whole grain bread with date or almond butter or small dish of stewed fruit or any fresh fruit in season.

Between meals: Water, fruit or vegetable juice or fruit eaten out of hand.

Lunch: Buttermilk or herb tea or cereal coffee; Salad made with any raw greens, including and especially watercress and parsley, with a dressing made of juice of 1 lemon, vegetable salt and safflower, sunflower, sesame or soya-bean oil; 1 slice whole grain bread or baked potato; yogurt, cottage cheese or sour cream with any fruit.

Dinner: Herb tea or cereal coffee. Vegetable broth; Celery sticks, carrots and sliced cucumbers; 1 serving of either meat, fish, poultry, cheese, eggs or nuts; 1 serving of a vegetable grown above ground; 1 serving of a vegetable grown below ground; Fresh fruit or stewed fruit or raisins and nuts.

Take a spoonful of safflower, sunflower, sesame, soya-bean or cod liver oil, four hours after your last meal.

Reducing Diet
Upon Arising: One glass of water with fresh lemon juice.

Lunch: Salad (no dressing except lemon juice); 1 cup of soup (no cream, butter or flour); 1 soft boiled egg or soya bean cake 1 or 32 ozs; lean meat r fish, broiled, baked or roasted; 1 Soya bean cake is known as Tofu in Chinese and Japanese restaurants and markets. Its protein content is higher than that of cheese, meat, milk, or eggs, and it is not acid-forming.

Celery sticks, raw carrots, radishes, cucumbers, etc; Fruit in season. Skim milk or buttermilk, 8 fl. ozs.

Dinner: 1 cup of soup; 1 boiled egg or piece of cheese; 2 cup serving of vegetable. Salad (no dressing except lemon juice); Skim milk or buttermilk, 8 fl. ozs., or yogurt; 2 cup serving of fruit; Herb tea or cereal coffee with skim milk (no cream or sugar).

Evening snack: Any kind of fresh fruit, fruit juice, or vegetable juice.

If you want to cleanse your system, overcome some medical problem or simply reduce your weight, following one of these diets will help.
