How to Make Lemonade
2 Tbsp lemon or lime juice (approx. 1/2 lemon)
2 Tbsp genuine maple syrup (not maple flavored sugar syrup)
1/10 Tsp cayenne pepper (red pepper) or to taste
Water, medium hot (spring or purified water)
Combine the juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper in a 10 oz. glass and fill with medium hot water.
(Cold water may be used if preferred.) Use fresh lemons or limes only, never canned lemon or lime juice
nor frozen lemonade or frozen juice. Use organic lemons when possible.
Helping the Cleansing Along
As this is a cleansing diet, the more you can assist Nature to eliminate poisons, the better. If your system feels upset, it is because you are not having sufficient elimination. Avoid this possibility by following the directions completely. Above all, be sure you have two, three, or more movements a day. This may seem unnecessary not eating solid food, but it is Nature's way of eliminating the waste it has loosened from the various cells and organs in the body. They must leave the body some way. It would be just the same as sweeping the floor around and around and never removing the dirt from the house if the wastes were not passed out. The better the elimination, the more rapid will be the results '
A LAXATIVE HERB TEA is found to be the best helper for most persons. It is a good practice to take a good laxative herb tea right from the beginning - the last thing at night and first thing in the morning. There are several good laxative teas. They are best taken in a liquid form. Buy them in your health food store.
Another Cleansing Aid: Internal Salt Water Bathing
As it is necessary to bathe the outside of our bodies, so it is with the inside. Do not take enemas or colonics
at any time during the cleansing diet or afterwards. They are unnecessary and can be extremely harmful.
There is a much superior method of cleansing the colonic tract with- out the harmful effects of customary
colonics and enemas. This method will cleanse the entire digestive tract while the colonics and enemas will only
reach the colon or a small part of it. Colonics can be expensive while our salt-water method is not.
DIRECTIONS: Prepare a full quart of lukewarm water and add two level (rounded for the Canadian quart) teaspoons of uniodized sea salt. Do not use ordinary iodized salt as it will not work property.
Drink the entire quart of salt and water first thing in the morning. This must be taken on an empty stomach.
The salt and water will not separate but will stay intact and quickly and thoroughly wash the entire tract in about
one hour. Several eliminations will likely occur. The salt water has the same specific gravity as the blood,
hence the kidneys cannot pick up the water and the blood cannot pick up the salt.
This may be taken as often as needed for proper washing of the entire digestive system.
If the salt water does not work the first time, try adding a little more or a little less salt until the proper balance
is found; or possibly take extra water with or without salt. This often increases the activity.
Remember, it can do no harm at any time. The colon needs a good washing, but do it the natural way -
the salt water way. It is quite advisable to take the herb laxative tea at night to loosen, then the salt water
each morning to wash it out. If for some reason the salt water cannot be taken in the morning,
then the herb laxative tea must be taken night and morning.
How to Break the Lemonade Diet
Coming off the lemonade diet properly is highly important - please follow the directions very carefully.
After living in a semi-tropical and tropical climate for many years, I find that people have increasingly turned to
a raw fruit, nut, and vegetable diet. Following is the schedule for people who normally follow such a natural vegetarian diet:
FIRST and SECOND DAY AFTER DIET:
Several 8 oz. glasses of fresh orange juice as desired during the day. The orange juice prepares the digestive system to properly digest and assimilate regular food. Drink it slowly. If there has been any digestive difficulty prior to or during the change over, extra water may be taken with the orange juice.
Orange juice in the morning. Raw fruit for lunch. Fruit or raw vegetable salad at night.
You are now ready to eat normally.
