Remedy Description

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

York, p 100-101.


Inflammation of the colon owing to prolonged chronic constipation and a

critical deficiency of live active enzymes and moist raw fiber in the diet;

the first and foremost measure against this dangerous condition, which

often results in surgical colostomies, is to thoroughly clean out the colon

of putrefactive wastes and solid obstructions with a 7-day fast and

twice-daily colonic irrigations, followed by dietary adjustments to pre-

vent recurrence.

Carrots (juice or bulk): grated raw carrots are an excellent preventive

gainst colitis, providing both live enzymes and moist raw fiber for

proper bowel function; best when supplemented with 1-2 pints daily of

raw carrot juice.

Carot and Spinch juice: raw spinach juice is nature's best remedy for

chronic constipation and inflammation of the colon; 6 oz spinach/I 0 oz

carrot, 2 pints daily.

Molasses: a mild but dependable laxative, molasses also provides vital

mineral salts required to restore and maintain colon health; 2 tbsp in

warm water, twice daily.

Figs: fresh or sun-dried figs are also an excellent natural laxative for

sluggish bowels; the tiny seeds gather toxic wastes and mucus in the

colon and drag them out with feces.

Cabbage juice: raw cabbage juice effectively breaks up accumulations of

putrefactive wastes in the intestines; its high sulphur and chlorine

content makes it an excellent bowel cleanser; works so fast that foul gas

often expelled soon after ingestion; 1 pint daily, or 2 pints mixed

half/half with carrot juice.

Other beneficial foods: papaya; almonds; sunflower seeds; apple cider

vinegar (2 tsp in distilled water); squash.

Foods to avoid: pasteurized milk; cooked eggs; cooked meat; refined starch

and sugar, especially white flour and sweet pastries.
