MH, the master herbalist, at the Ask Barefoot Herbalist forum, often repeats the phrase that “one cure, cures all” regarding illness. This means the root cause of disease can be eliminated by abiding by the Laws of Nature rather than going against it.
And God said, “Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” — Genesis 1:29
If you seek to “obey nature” you can rest assure that nature will always guide you towards the truth. If you obey man, more often than not, you will discover their agenda doesn’t always have your best interest at heart as they profit at your expense.
The problem we have in discovering the truth to health is: western medicine will help you manage the just the symptoms and achieve only a temporary result. On the other extreme, with naturopathic care you end up moving from one fad to the next because it is popular or seems appealing. The problem with following the hype is, you end up wasting thousands of dollars on each and every method without seeing any long-term benefit.
As you come to follow the middle path, between western medicine and naturopathic remedies, you can begin to achieve results once you KNOW the protocols for health. When you experience real health for the first time it becomes your solid foundation for life and you can NEVER be fooled again by any scam artist. No doubt the majority of people will be critical towards you. Nonetheless, no one can change your mind once you have known the truth. Let them have their opinion. These simple truths are self-evident.
Achieving results on the OJ fast are as follows:
- 14 days gives you 5X more new red blood cells
- 21 days will repair and regenerate all new organs
- 40 days allows the skin to expel their hidden acids
FOUR STEPS: to authentic health
If you are going to be on a health program you should know the proper steps involved. The first step is doing three liver flushes before you attempt the OJ fast. This is done in two or three week increments. Dr. Hulda Clark’s liver flush has been workable and seen to get repeated results. She has been known to sell her brand of dewormer but MH’s dewormer is cheaper and superior on so many levels. The protocol is to take the Dewormer every day for seven days. Then on the last day you are ready to perform the liver flush. Remember to lie on your left side and not your right as it is much gentler on your body and the flow of gallstones will improve. If you fail to deworm for the full seven days prior to the liver flush you will NOT get results of removing any gallstones. The recipe can be found here: Liver Cleanse
One important tip while working with Dr. Clark’s Liver flush recipe is add lots and lots of extra honey to make the awful taste of epsom salts and grapefruit juice more palatable.
The second step one must do is purchase a good water-distiller. Most are fairly cheap and run in the $100 – $150 dollar range. This is so important for chelation purposes and shouldn’t be avoided because good water is needed on daily basis. Having fresh water without it being tainted by chemicals or metals is of primary importance. The negative criticism about drinking distilled water can be summed up that it leaches out minerals from the body and therefore we should avoid using it. This is a myth and simply not true. Only non-organic minerals are removed from your system which is what you want for good health to be restored.
The third step is to become thoroughly educated and research more and more until you actually gain some confidence to achieve health, wholeness and well-being. The best place to start is reading MH’s 108 page book and Dr. William Howard Hay’s book Health via Food. Back in the 1930s, Dr. Hay was a western doctor who became sick with dropsy. It was an incurable condition at the time and he had no way out other than to do as he often advised his patients to ‘write out his will’. Nonetheless, he was intelligent and resourceful enough to discover what the ancient monks would always resort to when ill – and that was fasting. He tested everything out scientifically and afterwards developed the 14 day OJ fast protocol. Later, he quit his ordinary job and set up a seminary where he was able to cure 60,000 cases over the course of his life.
The last step is, once you are fully confident, decide on doing either a 7, 14, or 21 day OJ fast. Get ready to squeeze 8 oranges a day for the duration. You are advised to eat 20 almonds a day so that your muscles don’t atrophy like Ghandi. With the almonds in your system, you are given enough protein to repair your muscles. At the very least, one is not bed-ridden and most everyone can continue with ordinary tasks and keep up their current work schedule. Some went as far as including a weight lifting program or exercise routine.
MH would go on to tell us that there is a timeline when you can expect to see specific results:
- 14 days will create NEW BLOOD
- 21 days will give you a brand NEW HEART
- 35 days will regenerate NEW SKIN
- 40 days will rebuild you a NEW LIVER
On this type of fast you can drink all the distilled water that your body may need. You can even add other liquids such as honey, maple syrup, and molasses to gain the necessary minerals your body needs to sustain and repair your body throughout the fast.
I find if your muscles become fatigued a tablespoon of honey will give you the strength you need. If you are craving pizza then take a tablespoon of olive oil and that will do the trick. If you begin craving chocolate then some spirulina or wheat grass will give you the b-vitamins to satisfy you until you come back into balance.
The Dr. Hay Rule while fasting is to have one bowel movement per day which is absolutely necessary or else toxemia will set in.
IMPORTANT: You need to decide on the daily enema or the herbal formula known as the LBB (lower bowel balance) to successfully complete any type of fast. Either one will assist your body to move the toxins DOWN and OUT the toilet.
After the completion of an extended OJ fast you will be able to discern the BASIS of health that is right for you. Now, whenever you are sick you can rely on a 3-day OJ fast and allow your body to remove the toxins the proper way – down and out your body.
