Recipe For Herbal Cleansing Tonic:
Mix together equal quantities of dried birch leaves, comfrey leaves, dandelion leaves, nettle leaves and dried rosehips. Use around 2 tablespoons of each dried herb. Mix, and store in an air-tight container.
To Use The Herbal Cleansing Tonic;
Take one rounded teaspoon of the herbal mixture and pour over a cup of boiling water. Let the tea infuse for 10 minutes before drinking.
Take the tea twice a day for two weeks only.
Cease taking the cleansing tea after two weeks. Wait for at least a month before you use the two-week herbal cleanse again.
Enema or Colonic Cleansing: It is helpful, though not imperative, to take an enema or two during this period of cleansing. Washing out the bowel of toxic residues lessens the chance of getting headaches or other unpleasant symptoms which sometimes arise when toxins are released through fasting and cleansing.
Avoid Wheat Bread, Cakes, Sugar and Dairy Milk : If you can, for best results, avoid these foods whilst you are on your two-week herbal detox.
Breakfast: Have a large bowl of oatmeal porridge in the mornings with a grated apple and olive oil or a little butter,
Lunch or Dinner: Eat plenty of cooked and raw greens, rice or potatoes, and good quality protein in the dinner meal, such as free-range chicken, free-range eggs, and fish.
Snack on fruit, nuts, seeds, and soya milk, if it is tolerated. Almonds, sunflower seeds and ground sesame seed are very nutritious, rich in calcium and iron, and make good snacks or accompaniments to healthy desserts.
