The Cleansing Diet was contributed by the Seneca Indians.
This 4-day cleanse supports and helps to allow the body to function optimally. Clients have experienced decreased allergy symptoms and congestion in the body, improved digestion, weight loss, and increased energy levels.
This cleanse can be repeated seasonally or at your discretion.
Eat only fruit and all you want (no bananas). This will cleanse the colon (your waste paper basket).
Drink all the herbal teas you wish, such as raspberry, hyssop, chamomile, or peppermint. Sweeten slightly with honey or maple sugar if needed. This day will release toxins, salt and excessive calcium deposits in the muscles, tissue and organs. It is essential to drink enough fluids during day 2 because headaches may occur. Day 2 is easier when you can relax in the comfort of your home and not be challenged by many activities.
Eat all vegetables you want. Have them raw, steamed or both. The digestive tract is supplied with healthful, mineral-rich bulk on the third day.
Make a big pot of vegetable broth by boiling cauliflower, cabbage, onion, green pepper, parsley, or whatever you have available. Season with sea salt. Drink only this rich mineral broth all day long. The blood lymph and inner organs are mineralized on this last day.
Before commencing, gather all ingredients for each day so the cleanse will run smoothly.
