Remedy Description

Source: Tao of Health, Sex, and Longevity, Daniel Reid, Fireside, New

York, p 96

Excess adipose tissue deposited throughout the body, especially abdo-

men, buttocks and thighs, owing to excessive consumption of refined

starch and sugar and habitual consumption of incompatible food com-

binations; obesity is sometimes due to glandular disorders, but such

disorders are often also the direct result of poor dietary habits and may

therefore be corrected with the same nutritional therapy; fasting and

colonic irrigations are very helpful as the first steps in correcting both

obesity and glandular disorders, followed by nutritional therapy.

Carrot juice: raw carrot juice cleanses the entire digestive tract of


wastes, detoxifies the liver, and balances the endocrine system, all of

which help cure and prevent obesity; 2 pints daily.

Carrot, beet and cucumber juice: a major symptom of obesity is severe

acidosis of blood and tissues; this blend has potent alkalizing properties

in the bloodstream and kidneys, thus promoting efficient metabolism

and excretion of wastes, 10 oz/3 oz/3 oz, 2 pints daily.

Spinach: raw spinach is one of nature's best antidotes for lower bowel

stagnation, which is a common cause of obesity; consume raw in

salads, or 6 oz juice mixed with 10 oz carrot juice, 1-2 pints daily.

Cabbage juice: raw cabbage juice detoxifies the stomach and upper bowels

of putrefactive wastes, thereby improving digestive efficiency and

facilitating rapid elimination; mix half/half with carrot juice; 1 pint


Other beneficial foods: all raw vegetables and raw fruits which provide the

active enzymes, organic alkaline minerals and moist raw fiber required

for digestive and metabolic efficiency.

Foods to avoid: all refined starch and sugar, especially white bread and

sweet pastries; overcooked meats; fatty meats; chocolate; pasteurized

milk, cooked eggs; alcohol.
