Step 1 Towards Healing & Maintaining Your Health
Regular cleansing of your body will begin the healing of discomforts and diseases, and bring you into a more vibrant state of health.
Every system in your body will function more efficiently.
Does Your Body Need to be Cleansed?
Almost all of us are overloaded with toxins. We are constantly exposed to potentially dangerous toxins through the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. An optimally functioning detoxification system is necessary for preventing disease and providing good health.
All disease is the direct result of accumulating toxins in the body. Unless and until you clean out your insides, diseases can only be in remission, prepared to resurface. And disease is not a thing to be removed, cured or killed. It is a process, a remedial action to be left to your immune system to deal with. With your amazing healing powers within, health will return when given a clean, balanced and well nourished terrain. Drugs prescribed by physicians do not remove your disease, they only mask its symptoms. Your path to healing must include cleansing endeavors to remove the causes of disease.
When Your Body Requires Cleansing
The accumulation of toxins can be caused by:
- Toxic waste build up from normal cellular metabolism: if your body is healthy and has sufficient energy, then waste is eliminated efficiently.
- From processed foods: because we in some way alter most of the food we consume, and we are not biologically adapted for this, toxins accumulate at an alarming rate. Processed foods are not properly digested, absorbed and used in your cells, and toxins build up. Your body cannot keep ahead of this, and you feel symptoms of disease.
Natural healing begins with cleansing, to detoxify your body. When a person feels enough discomfort or pain, they usually seek relief. This is exactly where we need to take a step back further, to identify the cause of discomfort, and remove it. We want relief from discomfort, but unless the underlying cause is removed, the condition will return.
It does take time to clean a body that has been accumulating toxins over a lifetime, but the rewards will be well worth the time and effort. Cleansing the body of accumulated toxins enables proper functioning of the immune system, and a natural state of health will return.
Learn to obey the laws of nature: eat simple & natural foods, properly prepared & combined, and your body will be happy to eliminate all the poisons accumulated during your lifetime.
Every cell in your body produces waste, that is poisonous and incompatible with cellular metabolism. This waste enters your lymphatic system and gets carried into your blood. The blood moves waste to the excretory organs for elimination.
Naturally, this process keeps your body clean. But if your lifestyle creates more toxins than these systems can eliminate (from food, water, air, stress), a crisis results (discomfort, pain, disease), and compensatory elimination occurs (excess mucus in your sinuses and lungs, skin eruptions, diarrhea, headaches, dizziness, slight fever, fatigue, inflammation, aches & pains etc.).
To be free of discomforts, you must remove the underlying cause, or the condition will return. It takes time to clean a body that has been accumulating toxins over a lifetime, but the rewards will be well worth the time and effort.

Natural Hygiene to Eliminate Accumulated Toxins
The basic foundation of natural hygiene is that your body is always striving for health: it is your birthright.
Your body is:
- Self-cleansing (by continuous elimination of toxins)
- Self-healing (by natural healing powers within)
- Self-maintaining (for nature is always correct, and can not be improved upon)
The quest for health and vitality is through facilitating these processes, not hindering them.
The Healing Crisis
You May Feel Worse Before You Begin to Feel Better
When you begin to cleanse for healing, every system in your body will start eliminating built up, stored waste. Bringing toxins out of storage and into motion for elimination often causes uncomfortable symptoms - a healing crisis. Rest and adequate hydration with energized water is critical in this stage.
Before those stirred up toxins are eliminated, they can produce flu-like symptoms, fatigue, or any other sign of your illness. During the healing crisis, it is important to not suppress these temporary symptoms with drugs, or the healing process may be interrupted.
Please know that the discomforts will pass, as your body normalizes to a new level of health. A lifetime of building up toxins in your body will take some time to eliminate.
Because we eliminate toxins through four different channels (kidneys, bowels, lungs and skin), the symptoms of a healing crisis can vary: excess mucus in your sinuses and lungs, diarrhea, headaches, dizziness, slight fever, fatigue, aches & pains, skin eruptions. The symptoms may come and go, and each period of time in between symptoms will be longer, with more energy than before.
The length of time for a healing crisis will vary with each person.
Cellular Elimination of Body Wastes and Toxins
From approximately 4 am until noon, your body's natural cycle is in cleansing and eliminating mode. The foods you eat during this time must support and enhance toxin elimination. And those foods are fruit. Fruit, fruit and more fruit, in unlimited quantities, until about noon. And only raw, unprocessed fruit or fruit juices (not pasteurized). It is essential to eat fruit on an empty stomach, allowing 30 to 45 minutes before eating other foods. As fruit requires less energy for digestion than any other food, you will have more energy for healing. Eating any other foods at this time will slow or stop your natural elimination process, adding to your storage of toxins, and your ill-health.
Fruit is virtually the perfect food, and the most important food that you can put into your body. All your nutritional requirements are contained within fruits and vegetables; vitamins, minerals, proteins, amino acids, enzymes, carbohydrates, and fatty acids. When eaten during your natural elimination cycle, nothing can match the befits of fruit. We are biologically adapted to it, as our ancestors subsisted mainly on fruit. It has the highest water content of any food, which makes it highly effective for removing toxic wastes, and transporting nutrients to cells. Waste that has been built up over your lifetime will be eliminated. This way of eating will cleanse you to health, not clog you into sickness. To be vigorously alive, you must eat mostly foods that are high in water content, raw and unprocessed.
Supporting your natural elimination cycle by eating only raw fruits before noon is unquestionably the most important aspect of regaining and maintaining your health.
