These foods will not be able to rid the system of impurities. Your food should be eaten as dry as possible and well masticated so that it is thoroughly mix with saliva to help digestion. Prolonged fruit diet will obtain wonderful result.
After taking two to three weeks of fruit diet, use potassium broth, French toast, and mashed potato. Drink slippery elm tea for it is nourishing, cleansing and strengthening. Solid food must be taken sparingly, of course, after the fruit diet.
A high enema must be taken every evening for some time as they cleanse and heal. You can use white oak bark, red raspberry or alum root.
