Natural Weight Loss
Blood is composed of 4 parts: plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
Through these parts, your blood performs several life-sustaining functions.
Plasma is the watery, colorless liquid in which the other parts float.
Red blood cells carry oxygen to your cells.
White blood cells destroy bacteria and other disease-producing organisms.
Platelets are needed for blood clotting.
In addition, blood carries nutrients to your cells and carries away wastes, carries hormones from your endocrine glands to other parts of your body, and helps regulate body temperature.
If any of these are impaired, the consequences can have a direct bearing on your health.
There are several ways the functions carried out by your blood can be impaired.
First, hundreds of chemicals – ranging from gases like carbon monoxide to toxic metals like lead to natural substances like fat – can find their way into your blood and impair its function.
These foreign substances enter your body through the air you breathe, water you drink, food you eat, and surfaces you come in contact with through your skin.
Because these substances act on your blood in different ways, the adverse effects they produce can vary widely.
Second, the performance of your blood can be hampered by a lack of specific nutrients.
A good example is an iron deficiency resulting in anemia.
But, there are many nutrients your blood needs on a daily basis if it’s to work normally.
Finally, genetics can play a role in creating blood disorders.
Sickle-cell anemia and hemophilia are 2 common examples.
Blood purification techniques can act in 2 ways.
Some help draw foreign substances out of your body, while others give important nutrients to help restore your blood’s normal structure and maximize its performance.
Blood purification is achieved through the use of a special fast.
This is for healthy adults only.
If you have a chronic condition, please check with your health care provider first.
Pregnant and lactating women should only do this with a physician’s consent.
Once you’ve decided to follow a blood purification program, it’s important to pick a good time for the fast.
Fasting requires the conservation of energy.
So, avoid fasting on a week when, for example, you’re moving or participating in a sports event.
Also, cold-weather months aren’t an ideal time for a fast, because some of the heat you need to withstand the cold is created during the digestive process.
Most important is to be mentally prepared.
If you’re “psyched up” for the fast, it’s the right time to fast.
Once you’ve chosen the time for your fast and have prepared yourself mentally, you can begin to prepare yourself physically.
For one week prior to your fast, follow a raw vegetable diet, including lots of “green drinks.”
Chlorophyll, from tablets or fresh juice, “pre-cleanses” your body, making your fast less of a shock to your system.
While on your fast, drink only steam-distilled water; juices; and dandelion, milk thistle, licorice root, yellow dock root, burdock root, or red clover tea or extract.
Drink at least 8-10 cups of distilled water daily to help cleanse and carry toxins out of your body.
The best juices for blood purification are lemon juice, beet juice and its tops, carrot juice, and the juices of all leafy greens.
Leafy green juices are important because they supply chlorophyll, an essential part of blood purification therapy.
Chlorophyll not only cleanses your blood of impurities, but also builds up your blood with important nutrients, promotes regularity, and inhibits cellular damage from radiation.
This makes chlorophyll helpful in the treatment of many disorders.
Wheatgrass, barley, and alfalfa juices are all rich in chlorophyll.
This fast provides very little salt.
Most diets provide too much salt, but too little can make you lightheaded and dizzy.
If you feel either of these, take some clear broth.
Stay on your fast for 3 days, or as directed by your health care provider.
Once you’ve completed your fast, avoid white flour and all sugars – things highly refined and hard to digest.
The stress placed on your body by these foods can “undo” all of the good accomplished by your fast.
Ideally, these foods should be avoided all of the time.
At the very least, eliminate them – as well as heated fats and oils – for at least 1 month after your fast.
