Remedy Description

There are dozens of different types of headache, but most are caused

primarily by excess pressure in the tiny capillaries that feed the brain;

this pressure is caused by impurities in the bloodstream, which not only

block the tiny capillaries but also deprive the brain of oxygen and


Spinach: raw spinach, as bulk or juice, purifies the bloodstream and builds

up the oxygen-carrying element of hemoglobin, thus enhancing supply

of oxygen and blood to the brain.

Carrot, beet, and cucumber juice: this blend breaks down acid crystals in

kidneys, thus improving their ability to cleanse the blood of the

impurities that often cause headaches when they reach the brain; also

purifies blood and builds hemoglobin, thus enhancing oxygen supplies

to brain; 10 oz/3 oz/3 oz, 1-2 pints when headache approaches.

Lecithin: 20 per cent of brain tissue consists of lecithin, which when

taken in combination with vitamin C has remarkable rejuvenating effects on

the brain; organic lecithin also rinses away inorganic cholesterol de-

posits in coronary arteries, thereby enhancing supply of oxygenated

blood to the brain; liquid lecithin extracted from soy beans is most

convenient form of supplement.

Garlic: raw garlic is one of nature's best blood vessel cleansers; taken in

conjunction with lecithin, it not only eliminates toxic conditions that

often cause headaches, but also enhances memory, learning and other

mental functions.

Other beneficial foods: lettuce juice; molasses; pecans; wheat germ; sun-

flower seeds; raw egg yolk (for lecithin and organic cholesterol).

Foods to avoid: refined starch, especially white flour; refined sugar, es-

pecially sweet soft drinks; cooked eggs; pasteurized milk; cooked

fatty meats.
