Excessive consumption of devitalized and cooked foods, especially in
incompatible combinations, results in sluggish bowels and chronic con-
stipation; the colon fills with feces and toxic by-products of fermentation
and putrefaction, which impairs peristalsis, irritates the colon, and even-
tually poisons the bloodstream by osmosis; colonic irrigations are the
firststep in correcting constipation, followed by nutritional therapy.
Figs: fresh or sun-dried figs cleanse the bowels of toxic waste and mucus
and serve as a natural laxative; for an excellent therapeutic drink for
constipation, put 3 figs in a blender with one ripe banana, 2 tbsp
molasses and 1 cup water and blend till smooth.
Molasses: 1 tbsp in warm water, twice daily.
Spinach: raw spinach is nature's best remedy for irritated and sluggish
bowels; as juice mix 6 oz spinach with 10 oz carrot, 2 pints daily.
Carrot: grated raw carrots supplemented with 2 pints raw carrot juice
should be consumed daily by those with chronic constipation.
Other beneficial foods: papaya; squash; raw apples; ripe bananas; raw
Foods to avoid: never use mineral oil as a laxative: it robs the digestive
tract of all oil-soluble vitamins, such as A, E & D, and is not as
effective as figs or molasses; also avoid pasteurized milk, cooked eggs,
overcooked meats, and refined starch.
