This is a great natural remedy to cure a bout of constipation and for clearing toxins from the digestive system. It is a variation on the lemon juice and olive oil therapy, which also helps to dissolve small gall stones, and to prevent them from forming. The standard lemon cure is more acidic and less sweet than using orange, which might make it more powerful in its cleansing effect. However, this milder variation which uses orange juice instead, is still a good alternative. If you are a normal healthy person, and you are not on any medication, then the orange olive oil drink could be safely taken once or twice a week.
Note: If you think you have gall stones and are experiencing pain, then you should visit your doctor or naturopath for advice before trying this remedy. This is a safe treatment for constipation, but self treatment for gall stones is not recommended unless you have had professional advice on the matter. People with chronic candida should also seek professional advice before trying out the orange olive oil drink.
The action of the orange olive oil drink is, like the lemon treatment, similar to the effect of castor oil in its cleansing properties. It helps to release toxins and to eliminate candida yeasts from the digestive tract, as well as helping to break down and expell small gall stones. Unlike taking castor oil, the orange olive oil mixture is actually quite pleasant to take.
For best results, it is bet to take the orange and olive oil drink as soon as you get up in the morning. It is also best to drink only fluids such as the fermented wheat drink or fruit or vegetable juice at least for the morning. The recipe for the home made fermented wheat lactobacilli drink is a post or two before this post. Drink a glass of either the wheat drink or fruit juice, or eat a piece of fruit, on the hour every hour through the day until you eat a light meal in the evening. If you feel up to it, doing the whole day on just the raw food and drinks is beneficial.
The recipe for the orange olive oil drink is this:
Take a large cup. In it put 4 full tablespoons of virgin olive oil. Squeeze out the juice of one juicy orange and pour thison the top of the olive oil. You need an equivalent amount of orange juice as the olive oil. Whip the two together. Top up with near boiling water and whisk this into the mixture. Drink the lot immediately in one dose.
Lightly massage the stomach area around the solar plexus with a gentle circular motion. This is good to do several times in the day after taking the orange and olive oil, as it helps the gall bladder to release toxins and stale bile.
Using an enema on the days when you take the orange and olive oil is helpful in cleansing the intestines. You can also use a castor oil pack over the solar plexus area, and leave it on for at least three hours. Using the pack does not need to stop you going about your normal daily activities. Just soak a piece of flannel or linen about 6 inches by 12 inches in about three tablespoons of castor oil. Fold the flannel into two, making a square, and put this directly onto the stomach, over the solar plexus area. Put a piece of clear plastic over this, and then either a bandage or some firm clothing which will hold the pack in place. If you have the time, you can increase the healing detox effect of the olive oil treatment and the castor oil pack by lying down for half an hour with a hot water bottle placed over the pack.
