Remedy Description

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

York, p 97

Excretory System: colon, kidneys, bladder,

lymph nodes, skin

Acne, boils, pimples

These skin conditions are caused mainly by excessive putrefactive waste

matter in the body's excretory channels, and extreme acidosis of blood

due to accumulation of toxic wastes; when wastes are retained and the

colon is clogged, the body purges toxins through the skin and lungs,

where these toxins cause abscesses, tumors, inflammation and eruptions.

Also due specifically to poor metabolism of fats.

Wheat germ oil: Rich in inositol, which enhances metabolism of fats,

thereby reducing excretory burden on skin; contains pyridoxine, which

enhances peristalsis and thus improves digestion and assimilation of

nutrients and elimination of wastes; 1-2 tsp daily, after meals; may also

be rubbed directly onto skin eruptions.

Wheat germ: same benefits as wheat germ oil, but less concentrated; also

rich in silicon, which builds strong fingernails and healthy hair.

Cucumbers (bulk or juice): raw cucumbers are rich in potassium, sodium

and phosphorus, which neutralize blood acidosis; potent diuretic

properties, which facilitate excretion of wastes through kidneys, so that

they need not be purged through skin; also good for nails and hair; in

raw bulk, or as juice, mixed 1/3 cucumber to 2/3 carrot, 2-3 pints daily.

Garlic: purifies the bloodstream and purges body of toxic waste; garlic

ethers reach the skin soon after consumption, killing bacteria attracted

to festering eruptions; must be taken raw.

Green (sweet) pepper juice: in combination with equal parts carrot juice;

1-2 pints daily.

Other beneficial foods: active yeast (in warm water); soy beans; fresh

lemon juice (no sugar); alfalfa tea; raw potato slices rubbed directly on

skin eruptions and raw potato juice (i pint daily).

Foods to avoid: deep fat fried foods; refined starch and sugar;

hydrogenated fats; cooked fatty meats, especially hamburgers on white

buns; hot peppers; chocolate.
