Apple Fast Detox
Hi all...I compiled the following information from a few different sources...
The Edgar Cayce
Foundation even suggests their popular Apple Fast, which provides not only the benefits of the malic acid in apples, but also gives you large amounts of natural pectin fiber to cleanse the intestinal tract.
Eat nothing but raw apples for 3 days, supplemented by extra-virgin olive oil - either a tablespoon/day, or a half cup at the end of the fast. The apples contain pectin, which leeches toxins from the blood stream and intestines. It will also leech anything with food value, so don't eat anything else, including vitamins (which serve only to assist in the absorption and digestion of other foods, and are useless by themselves). Drink only distilled water, for the same
reason. It's called a fast because, by eating only apples, the body is fooled into a fasting mode, where it starts dumping toxins from the liver, kidneys, and other internal organs, into the bloodstream, where they can be leeched by the pectin. Nonetheless, be prepared to feel grouchy on the 2nd day, due to the release of all the toxins into your system. Best to start on a Friday and finish on a Sunday. You won't want to be around people on the second day.
Eat a minimum of 8-10 apples a day. (*I found this paragraph on a site that was saying that this apple fast helps a person quit smoking too, that the fast purges all the nicotine from your body)
Cayce advised people to use vitamin pills and the like for a duration and then to leave off and then to resume stressing that the body must not get dependant on them and thus fail to make the necessary substances required for the digestion of proper food.
Vitamins do not, will not, supply the energies as well as a meal a day which consisted of raw salad. (edgar cayce suggests at least one meal a day be of raw vegetables)
The cayce detox
Recommended in hundreds of readings was the cayce detox, the elimination process was found to be poor and the subsequent build up of toxins and poisons was found in hundreds of people. The cayce detox was to help rid the body of these wastes. As the lay person can easily appreciate the situation in your very own kitchen if you did not clean up after every meal, bacteria would have a great time multiplying and contaminating places every where. So many thousands of people have been helped greatly by helping the body get rid of waste the importance of this action cannot be overestmated.
Cayce prescribed the three day apple diet where for three days you would eat nothing but apples of the sheep nosed type preferably organic types like Johnathons, Delicious, Oregon reds, Arkansas black and water. At the end of the third day a two spoons full of olive oil was taken. The success that people described having done this regime was uplifting, revitalizing, feeling great, an euphoric feeling, greater mental clarity and physically more energy. It is one of the most effective ways of preventing disease.In fact cayce said that it would cleanse all toxic forces from any body. According to reillys book he himself tried to detox three times a year.
There you go!
*He also recommended a 4-Day Pear Fast and a 5-Day Grape Fast. (all organic, of course!)
