Remedy Description

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

York, p 102.


Fevers are the result of the body trying to 'incinerate' waste matter

stirred up in the system as the result of other conditions, such as

colds, flu and infectious diseases. Hippocrates wrote, 'If you feed a

fever, you'll have to starve a cold', which has been misquoted as 'Feed a

fever, starve a cold'. Thus, the best remedy for any fever is complete

fasting, plus colonic irrigations to accelerate elimination of waste

matter from the body. If you 'feed a fever', you'll only make things worse.

Citrus juice: the only thing a fever patient should be given is freshly

extracted lemon, lime, orange or grapefruit juice, diluted half/half with

distilled water, with no sugar or ice; citrus fruit acids help loosen,

dissolve and eliminate mucus and other toxic wastes throughout the


Foods to avoid: all foods and beverages, except for distilled water and the

juices mentioned above.
