Another version of the
grape diet involves eating between 500g and 1kg of grapes for breakfast and raw
foods of any kind during the rest of the day. This is an excellent diet for
constipation, auto-intoxication, and other chronic disorders.
A good way to conduct the
fruit diet is to eat 2 oranges and an apple 3 times a day - or 2 oranges and a
pear or a peach. Drink 6-8 glasses of water during the day. This diet may be
continued for several days, up to a maximum of 3 weeks.
Acid and sub-acid fruits,
when eaten ripe and uncooked, provide organic digestive chemicals similar to
pepsin, which is needed to break down proteins. They also supply the active
phosphorus compounds needed for the brain, nerve cells, the spinal cord, bone
marrow and muscles. Acid fruits include lemons, pineapples, tangerines,
oranges, grapefruit, limes, gooseberries, red currants, tomatoes, cranberries
and some varieties of apples and strawberries. Lemons are highly acidic, and
when baked, become sub-acid. A very sweet apple is sub-acid.
Through elimination we
often lose minerals. Stomach cramps are a sign that this is happening. Acute
cramps indicate a lack of sodium; if they are more consistent and dull,
magnesium deficiency is usually the cause. Tissue salts such as
magnesium phosphoricum D6 or magnesium sulfuricum will stop the cramps almost
immediately. I can recommend Dr Schuessler's tissue salts.

make a drink from equal quantities of the following freshly made
Add sorrel or chives to
taste. I suggest 1 cup, 3 times a day.
