Remedy Description

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

York, p 109

Circulatory System: heart, pericardium, blood vessels


A condition also known as 'tired blood', anemia is caused by a critical

deficiency of red blood corpuscles, especially the oxygen-carrying element

hemoglobin; symptoms include chronic fatigue, lethargy, depression and

loss of sexual drive; this condition is due entirely to poor dietary

habits, especially the exclusive consumption of cooked, denatured,

processed foods, pasteurized milk and refined starch; heavy smoking may

also be a contributing factor.

Molasses: molasses is nature's richest source of organic iron and copper,

which work together to build 'strong blood', especially the iron-

dependent protein hemoglobin; 2 tbsp in a glass of warm water, twice


Wheat germ oil: enhances the blood's capacity to carry oxygen, thereby

correcting blood deficiency; 1 tsp of pure wheat germ oil after breakfast

and again after dinner.

Lecithin: builds strong blood plasma and dissolves sticky deposits in

arteries, thereby enhancing blood's capacity to assimilate and transport

oxygen and nutrients; liquid lecithin from soy beans is best; raw egg

yolks is another rich source.

Fennel juice: use 'Florence Fennel', also known as 'Finocchio'; specific

affinity for bloodstream, builds strong blood plasma; may be taken

straight, 1 pint daily, or mixed half/hajf with carrot juice, 2 pints


Red beet juice: builds red blood corpuscles and tones up overall blood

quality; 8 oz, taken 2-3 tsp at a time throughout the day; or as carrot,

beet, cucumber blend.

Spinach: rich in organic iron and other vital minerals; builds strong blood

plasma, especially iron-dependent hemoglobin; raw bulk in salads, or

6 oz juice with 10 oz carrot juice, 1-2 pints daily.

Other beneficial foods: pomegranate; lettuce juice; dandelion juice; aspar-

agus; cabbage; chrysanthemum tea; black grapes; raisins; raw egg yolks

wheat germ.

Foods to avoid: pasteurized milk; strong coffee and tea; refined starch,

especially white flour; canned, smoked, preserved and otherwise

processed foods.
