Bladder inflammation (cystitis)
This common condition is the result of excess acidity in the bladder due to
incomplete digestion of meats and starch; the by-products of incomplete
digestion form uric acid crystals which irritate the lining of the bladder
and eventually form painful bladder stones.
Carrot, beet, cucumber juice: this blend exerts a potent alkalizing
influence in the bloodstream and the kidneys, thereby neutralizing the
excess uric acid that inflames kidneys and bladder and forms stones there;
10 oz/3 oz/3 oz, 2 pints daily.
Watermelon: one of nature's safest and most dependable diuretics, water-
melon has a remarkable ability to wash out the bladder quickly and
completely; the most effective therapeutic use is to refrain from all other
food and drink for 24 hours and eat a few small chunks of fresh
watermelon every 5-10 minutes throughout the day; this will cause an
incredible excretion of fluids from the bladder.
Cucumber (bulk or juice): raw cucumbers are an excellent diuretic with
specific affinity for the bladder; as juice, mix 1/3 cucumber with 2/3
carrot, 2 pints daily.
Pears: ripe raw pears are almost as good as watermelon for correcting
bladder inflammation; use them in conjunction with a 24-hour fast, a
bite or two at a time, like watermelon therapy.
Other beneficial foods: asparagus, raw beet juice (8 oz sipped slowly
throughout the day), barley water.
Foods to avoid: salt, soy sauce; strong coffee and tea; salt-preserved
foods; ooked meats.
