14 - A Purifying Diet
An Effective Purifying and Reducing Diet, Especially for the Chronically Ill, Based Upon Over 60 Years of Practice & Research
"Man is ill because he is never still."
- Paracelsus (Often quoted by Dr. Stone)
The following Purifying Diet should be taken as long as there is constipation, high blood pressure, arthritis, rheumatism, pain, swelling, congestion, toxicity, and overweight.
MORNING TIME is used for flushing the system and cleansing it. No solids are taken - only liquids, including plenty of fresh grapefruit, oranges and lemon juice; or fresh grape juice in season; but no milk, regular tea or coffee. It is most important to flush out the liver, the kidneys and the intestinal tract in this way, to restore their correct chemical function. The entire well-being of the body depends on this.
Instead of bed tea in the morning, take two or more cupfuls of hot herb tea made of Licorice Root, Himalayan Mountain Violet, Anise or Fennel, Peppermint, and Foenugreek [fenugreek], to which should be added at the time of serving: fresh lemon juice, fresh ginger juice to suit the taste, and honey if desired; but sugar should never be used. Several glassfuls of this may be taken at a time during the morning between meals, or any other time - day or night, as desired. If constipated, use more licorice root and fresh garlic. In diarrhoea [diarrhea], use no licorice, ginger or liver-flush, but substitute cinnamon bark in the tea
