Four Days Cleansing Diet

Four Days Cleansing Diet

This is a simple but effective cleansing diet first used by Seneca Indians.

Day 1 : Eat only fruit. All kind of fruit will work except bananas. Suggestions: watermelon, pears, peaches, apples, berries, cherries, oranges, grapefruit, and so forth.

At this day the colon is cleansed.

Day 2 : Drink only herbal tea. All kind of herbs will work. Example: peppermint, raspberry, hyssop, chamomile. Use a small amount of honey or maple sugar if needed.

At this day the body releases toxins, excessive salt and other undesirable deposits from tissues.

Day 3 : Eat vegetables only, any kind you want. You can have them raw and/or steamed.

At this day the digestive tract is provided with wholesome, rich in minerals bulk.

Day 4 : Have vegetable broth all day long. Make a rich mineral broth by boiling all kind of vegetables (cabbage, cauliflower, green pepper, carrot, parsley, or whatever is at hand), and drink as much as you like. Be careful, do not overdo it with salt.

At this day all inner organs and blood are supplied with minerals.

From day five start eating normally  following a healthy wholesome diet.

TODAY’S TIP: All diets and food restrictions are meant to give us strength for spiritual practice. Too much food makes our mind dull, to little makes it restless. Listen to your body and mind to find the golden mean.
