* 1 teaspoon Psyllium husks powder in a glass of unsweetened juice
* Drink at least 16 ounces of liquid within the 3-hour period between each dose
* Do this regiment 5 times a day, starting at 7:00 AM, 10:00 AM, 1:00 PM; 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM.
* At 9:00 PM take an enema to eliminate all the waste from the colon so you may sleep soundly. On the 4th or 5th day you will lose besides long ropes of waste, black matter which is a sign that you may start adding food to your diet like some raw and steamed fruits or vegetables. Discontinue clay after the 7th day, re-establish friendly bacteria with acidophilus or yogurt, and go on a good natural diet.
During this fast you don’t feel hungry. You may feel a little light-headed at times but you can continue most everyday work, except some strenuous exercise.
I have done this diet several times over the years, always with good results. I feel more energy and truly clean inside out. It can also be a good start for weight-loss but since it doesn’t build muscles most of the weight lost during the time of the fast will be toxins and water. The best part is it cleanses the intestines where most of our troubles start anyway.
This diet was suggested by Rev. Hanna Kroeger, MsD (1917- 1998) in her book “Old Time Remedies for Modern Ailments.” Mrs. Kroeger was trained in German and other European hospitals during the war years of WWI & WWII. She was often called the “Grandmother of Health” and achieved her fame similar to holistic health professionals during the 20th century like Linus Pauling, Ann Wigmore, Dr. John Christopher and Edgar Cayce.
I believe that we can do many things for ourselves. That’s part of our human responsibility to care for our bodies before we get seriously sick. That doesn’t exclude seeking out a qualified health care professional when something serious happens.
