This handout was created so that those who are truly interested in taking responsibility for the healing of their bodies of infection or disease may have a guideline. It is difficult to embark on a new way of eating when one is used to eating fast-food, junk food, processed foods and the typical American diet. Propaganda tells us that the Standard American Diet is a fine way to live and it will improve your life because it satisfies a short-term desire for something quick and tasty to eat. Convenience at any cost is the most important thing. Yet, it is becoming more and more evident that the food that we consume does have and effect on our well being and the chemicals, pesticides, and other processing agents that are used by the corporations that make these convenient foods are doing much more harm than anyone thought possible. The following outlines a three-part guide to nutritional healing of the body: the juice cleanse, the 21 day diet, and the continued healing and maintenance diet. It is by experience and observation of other’s experiences that this diet was formulated. It is this nutritional advisers best suggestion for the healing of infection or disease. As you prayerfully consider the suggestions offered herein, you ultimately must choose to be healthy. It takes work, determination, and commitment. During this time it is suggested that you surround yourself with those that are supportive, committed, and will hold you accountable. The more strictly you hold to the diet, the more quick and thorough the healing. Here’s to your health!

I. Begin with a juice cleanse including carrot, apple and barley green juices at alternating times throughout the day, drinking juice every hour of the day to keep energy up.
Also drink distilled water, not tap water, as much as possible. This should be done for a minimum of 3 days but preferably for a week if it is at all possible. (In order to cleanse the body completely of toxins that impair the healing process it is suggested to use enemas or colonics to empty the colon.)

Following the cleansing it is important to begin reparation and healing of the tissues in the body and building of the immune system to be able to fight off the infection or disease.

!!!Please be aware that during the cleansing process your body will eliminate toxins in all manner of forms. The most common form is felt by mild to severe headaches. It can be felt as sluggishness, depression, rashes etc. Any unusual symptoms can be felt at this time. Please do not let these symptoms discourage you, but on the contrary view them as your body doing exactly what you want it to do. ELIMINATE THE JUNK IN YOUR SYSTEM! If you need encouragement at this time please feel free to call your nutritional adviser.

II. For two to three weeks following the cleanse, remain strict with the following diet:
EAT: 80% live (raw) organic foods and 20% cooked organic grains, beans and vegetables. In the 80% group, include raw vegetables and salads, veggie juices, and fruit**.In the 20% group, include brown rice, spelt, amaranth and other grains (use whole wheat sparingly) and all kinds of beans, legumes, veggies and soy alternatives.

**If you suspect candida albicans (yeast infection) in your system please limit your fruit intake to apples and bananas sparingly.

Drink fresh, pure water and herbal teas made with pure water often.

Following the three weeks, you may add some goodies like eggs, Shelton’s turkey products and Buddy’s chicken, or some other brand of clean, hormone-free meats. Butter is o.k. as a condiment and nut butters may be added after the initial 2-3 weeks.

THE NO-NO’S: (for reasons why each of the following items should be avoided, consult any reputable health resource or discuss with the nutritional adviser)

Sugar
Salt
Dairy (after the 3 weeks it is believed that plain yogurt is the one dairy product whose positives out-weigh its negatives)
Meat (see above)
Caffeine

If you are following a yeast-free diet, you must also eliminate fruit with the exceptions outlined above.

If you are following a yeast-free diet, obviously you must eliminate yeasted breads from your diet as well and limit grains of any kind as they become sugar in the system and feed the yeast.

And it should go without saying that any substance that is known to be harmful such as cigarettes, alcohol, etc. should be completely avoided.

It is suggested that the following supplements should be added:

Acidophilus (Acidophilus should be the refridgerated kind)
Vita C (powder) $12.00 for several month’s supply
Udo’s Oil/ or some kind of Omega 3 fish oil tablets
Barley Max (an AIM product) ~ $36.00 for ~ 1 month’s supply

III. After the juice cleanse and the three weeks of strict adherence to the diet outlined above, you will surely feel a noticeable, positive difference.
You are encouraged to remain on the diet as long as you can make yourself do it and your budget will allow. Many people, after going through those difficult weeks decide that since they feel better they must be better and can go back to the SAD diet, only to find themselves in ill health, a few months or years later. Find a balance that is sustainable for you and your family. Add a bit of clean meats now and again, or make yourself a healthy dessert. But remain diligent to make healthy eating a normal part of your life. It’s worth the energy!
