*If anyone has any suggestions, please do, they are welcome!! I am certainly like a sponge at this time in my life!! :)*
I started the Lemonade Diet almost two weeks ago, taking in 5-6 cups of the lemonade with the cayenne pepper a day. I also do the sea salt water flush just about every day.
I also have been drinking organic apple juice and natural spring water to supplement, and an occasional hot green tea at night.
Also, I have been taking the Blessed Herb liver detox tonic, thyroid tonic, and ear, nose, and throat tonic.
Three days ago I started eating solid food again, added in only pineapple, as I have read that it is also good for cleaning out the liver and kidneys and lungs naturally.
I have done the liver purge with grapefruit juice and extra virgin olive oil on two previous occasions, a few years ago, but this time around I am just going to cleanse with fruits and herbal teas.
My dad brought the Master Cleanser home one day, and I was so curious about it so I decided to read it. He wanted to lose a couple of pounds, and I doubt he was in the consideration to really follow the cleanse as directed. Many people believe not eating solid food for over 24 hours is dangerous, and is highly ridiculed, but reading the book in its entirety has been such an inspiration to my life.
I've done this cleanse a few years ago, for 8 days. I decided to give it a go because:
I felt so lethargic,
my acne was severely bad (developed at the age of 12),
I couldn't breathe out of both nostrils,
constantly coughing up yellow-colored phlegm,
and a few of my toenails were turning brown.
After the eight days I was light and wispy. The first time I followed the diet I did not read the book in its entirety. I noticed my tongue was pink so I decided to stop the cleanse and perform a liver purge. While taking the epsom salts before taking the grapefruit juice and EVOO drink *I coughed up so much phlegm from my lungs, throat, and nose that my symptoms were completely gone* and it lasted for a couple of days. I read that there would take more than one liver purge to have permanent results, but understand it was BEFORE I EVEN DID THE LIVER PURGE. Those two days were two of the happiest days of my life.
I did not change my diet for long, so the results were short lived.
Later down the line, two Decembers ago, I've also done Blessed Herb internal and colon cleansing kits. The results are amazing. It is expensive, but well worth it. It would have been much better had I changed my diet, :).
This time around, years later, 22 years old, I have read the book in its entirety, more than once, and re-read for emotional support and understanding.
Since then I have had
several vaginal infections (had my first vaginal infection in 7th grade),
my acne is still active,
and the other symptoms previously listed have been worse than its ever been.
Before this second go around with the lemonade diet, I've gone through phases of eating nothing but fast food for weeks at a time, lots of pastas and breads, just really ignoring my body and yet and still wondering why everything was out of whack. Being in college did not help, either.
I am glad to say that I have finally come in the know of great and vital information about foods, herbs, vitamins, treatments, and have taken the reigns of my life and am going to completely change my diet.
To supplement my acne I am going gluten-free and grain-free, and eating a lot more raw foods. I live in the south, and it is tradition to just cook everything down, :). Also, I am cutting dairy out as much as possible, but I absolutely love my cheese every now and again. I have been reading a lot about raw milk and its benefits so am also going to give that a try, for the good flora.
I switched to soy milk a few months ago but I've read some negatives about that so am switching to almond milk once off the fast.
Currently my tongue is pink (hasn't been in years), decent smelling saliva, and my acne has subsided greatly. My urine is also clear. My breathing has improved somewhat, but *I am still congested, I can really feel it in my head, ears, nose, throat* I will have to update about my toenails, I have polish on them at this time, :).
But my main concern is this congestion. Also, *I experience post nasal drip very bad. When I wake up in the morning I cough up a thick glob of mucus every morning, without fail.* I found that this was the main reason I experienced tonsil stones as well.
I have been researching about candida and post nasal drip, but I know these two problems takes a time getting over. Lord's willing I will be cured before the year is over. That is my goal.
