Remedy Description

Chronic fatigue is an indication that the body's 'batteries' have run down

and resistance is lowered, and thus serves as a warning that disease might

strike at any time; it is primarily due to a critical deficiency of active

enzymes in the diet and an overabundance of 'dead' processed, over-

cooked foods, in incompatible combinations; such diets, typical of mod-

ern times, literally starve cells of nutrition and energy and permit toxic

wastes to accumulate in the tissues; consequently, the body is unable to

generate and direct energy for work or play; all available energy must be

used just to keep the body alive.

Pecans: nature's most potent source of organic pyridoxine (vitamin B6),

which is essential for all nervous functions and plays a key role in

utilizing amino acids derived from consumed proteins; since all vital

functions are controlled by the nervous system, pecans provide the

element required by nerves to transform nutritional 'essence' to func-

tional energy and regulate the body; 10-15 raw pecans, or 20-30 pecan

halves daily is a therapeutic dose.

Carrot, beet, cucumber juice: this blend provides a potent boost of active

enzymes and organic nutrients to the bloodstream, while also alkaliz-

ing and cleansing the kidneys, which in turn improves blood quality

and helps relieve fatigue; 10 oz/3 oz/3 oz, 1-2 pints daily.

Carrot juice: raw carrot juice is perhaps the best overall therapeutic

food in the world; it alkalizes, cleanses, nourishes and stimulates almost

every system in the body; as such, it is an effective antidote for the

nervous exhaustion caused by diets deficient in vital raw foods; 2-3 pints


Raw egg yolk: a potent source of organic lecithin, which is a major

component in brain and nerve tissue; also stimulates sluggish adrenal

glands, which alleviates fatigue; 2 yolks daily, blended into carrot juice.

Other beneficial foods: raw spinach; active yeast (in warm water, on empty

stomach); molasses; wheat germ; soy beans; lecithin.

Foods to avoid: denatured, processed, preserved, canned and cooked

foods should compose less than 50 per cent of daily diet in order to cure

and prevent chronic fatigue due to nutritional deficiency.
