Here is a simple to follow diet that will help you recover from any disease. It is aimed at reducing the number of toxins taken into the body, thus inhibiting the growth of new disease and illuminating the cause of many present illnesses. This diet, along with a good chelation regime, will help reduce your risk of cancer and other life threatening diseases.
No red meat of any kind (beef, pork, veal, lamb, etc.) unless organic, and then only three times a week.
Try to avoid chicken and turkey unless organic. Avoid farm raised fish.
No preserved foods. That means nothing out of a can, jar, box, package, or so on. Eat only fresh (or frozen if no preservatives are added) fruits, vegetables, legumes, etc.
Bake, stir fry or steam your foods. Or eat them raw.
No deep or pan frying. Also try juicing your fruits and vegetables.
No refined sugars of any kind. That means no white or brown sugars, no beet or cane sugars. Avoid artificial sweeteners too. Use Stevia, which you can find at most health food stores; 1/16 tsp. or less will sweeten 1/2 gallon of herbal tea.
Avoid dairy when whenever possible.
No processed dairy foods (ie. Velveeta, Cheese Whiz, etc.) Substitute organic soy milk for cow’s milk. Do us butter instead of margarine. Better yet, use a product like Smart Balance. Live yogurt and cheese cultures are good. Avoid yellow cheese which are dyed and often a trigger for migraine headaches.
Drink only filtered, purified or distilled water.
The jury is still out on the bottled waters. Some have tested to be not as healthy as you would imagine. Avoid coffee and black teas.
Do not drink Soda pop of any kind.
Do not drink out of soft plastic bottles of any kind. They contain xenoestrogens, and contribute enormously to the amount of gender related cancers in this country.
Use Lexan or Nalgene plastics for cold beverages, and stainless steel or ceramic for hot.
Eat as much soy as you can (soy milk, tofu, tempeh, etc.).
No aluminum. Don’t drink out of aluminum cans and don’t use antiperspirants with aluminum in them.
Add the following supplements to your diet:
Vitamins A, C, E, fiber (psyllium seed husks) and/or pectin, CoQ10, Selenium , Kelp, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Multi-mineral.
To make a radical change in your health, you will have to radically change your diet.
To do that, go to a completely vegetarian diet, eating only juiced, raw, steamed or stir fried vegetables and fruits, with only whole grains once or twice a day.
No salts, oils, dairy products, condiments, or packaged foods of any kind.
A good guide for this kind of regime is the Gerson Therapy.
