Wheatgrass juice gives the most immediate pick-me-up. Spirulina (bluegreen algae) gives substantial energy and is a complete food. Kelp provides the iodine to fire up the thyroid and metabolism. Green tea or yerba mate is good for energy also and it is not over stimulating like coffee. Nori rolls are perhaps the most energizing high enzyme food there is: grind up slightly sprouted “hulled” sunflower or buckwheat seeds, add tahini, garlic, miso, Tom Yum Thai paste, lemon juice and mix this into a paste. Then put several tablespoons of this onto a nori sheet and cover with tomatoes, avocado, cilantro and cucumber, then roll up.

Chronic inflammation and infection exhausts the adrenal glands. To build up your adrenals to recover from fatigue take 6-8 gms per day of buffered vitamin C//Vitamin C ‘Ester’ with plenty of water between meals. This high dosage will reduce symptoms when withdrawing from any addictive substance whether it be food and food allergens, drugs, coffee or nicotine. The adrenals are the site of the highest concentration of vitamin C in the body. Pantothenic acid or B5, vitamin B1 and vitamin B6 work synergistically to nourish and strengthen the adrenals. Herbs to rebuild the adrenals are: Suma, ginseng, licorice, chaparral, Ma huang and ashwagandha.

COLLOIDAL SILVER: As a general antibacterial solution colloidal silver tends to reduce the intestinal bacteria populations. Alternatively colloidal silver made by using your own battery setup with wires of these pure precious metals can be sprayed onto sprouts grown in trays of soil. In this way the plant uptakes the metal and it chelates it for you. The colloidal silver kills fungal growth on the sprouts also.

Irritable bowel syndrome and leaky gut syndrome is most often caused by or associated with candida.
Cleansers: Bentonite clay powder + Psyllium husk powder—mix together and take one heap teaspoon in juice, per evening. Or put into 000 capsules and take 3 with a pint of water 2 hours after your last meal. Bentonite will ionically remove the biproducts of free radical decay. It is said that “regular” internal use of clay should be avoided in leaky gut conditions to avoid the assimilation of excess aluminum. However one is more likely to get brain damage from the toxins produced during maldigestion than contracting Alzheimer’s from aluminum. Bentonite is very soothing and antiputrifying in the digestive tract.

Note: Rich Andersons book Cleanse and Purify Yourself, is the best place to start for ultimate cleansing. Toxic Relief: Restore Health and Energy Through Fasting and Detoxification, by Don Colbert M.D. is also great.

REPAIR AND REBUILD: To rebuild the function and tone of the digestive tract after a kundalini awakening: White Oak Bark, cranesbill root, black cohosh, licorice root, peppermint. Two parts each of kelp powder, spirulina and one part slippery elm put into capsules will help ease digestive problems that arise with kundalini.

SOOTHERS: Herbs that have mucilage properties that soothe the digestive tract are--Mullen, chickweed, comfrey, borage, couch grass, chamomile, Marshmallow, Slippery elm and ground flax seed.

THINGS TO AVOID: Coffee, Salt, Sugar, Alcohol. Avoid cooked food in general, especially breads, pastries, flour products, meats, processed, preserved, pickled and frozen avoid all foods that are not raw as much as possible. Foods dehydrated or warm to around 110¡F are better, for this preserves the enzymes.

Note: I enjoy cooked food, especially at this time of the year. However, at times the choice of cooked food is good for my Spleen (as in Chinese Medicine), but not good in other areas of my being. So, when I know I will be eating more cooked (dead) food I also add in small amounts at different times during the day fresh salad, fresh herbs, fresh spices, and also fruit when eating a protein if possible. So every time I eat dead food, I also incorporate fresh/live enzyme food, to balance each meal out, and my body.

Things To Adopt: GREEN! GREEN! GREEN! Green leafy vegetables and cabbage. Cabbage is so affective I would recommend daily carrot/cabbage/celery juices with wheat grass. Dandelion greens are as potent as cabbage and can be incorporated in carrot juice.
  • You might have to grind nuts and seeds in a coffee grinder depending on your digestive power. Soak all nuts and seeds up to 8 hours before consumption to make digestion easier. Almonds are the safest nuts, the rest are questionable due to their tendency to go rancid (free radicals).  Soaked/sprouted sunflower seeds are one the best protein and iron sources. But find a source of "fresh" seeds, those in the shops are usually pretty old...Jaffe Brothers is a great catalog company.

  • Eat daily raw salads, especially cabbage/caulslaw...chew well. Buckwheat greens are a sweet gentle easily digestible green to include in salads.

  • Buckwheat is the grain par excellence for irritated GI, is soothing and alkalinizing. Soak hulled buckwheat 4 hours and sprout it in the fridge in a colander over a bowl covered with plastic. Ground up these sprouted seeds can be made into humus. Buckwheat sprouts can be used in salads, as a rice raw-substitute, and as a breakfast cereal over chopped fruit and soaked nuts with Kefir or yogurt. Kefir can also be made out of raw seed or nut milks.
ANTACIDS: Apple, Caraway, Catnip, Cloves, Parsley, Peppermint, Lemon balm, yucca root.

PROBIOTICS: Friendly intestinal bacteria are one of the body's first lines of immune defense. The type of bacteria that inhabit the colon depends not only on the kind of food digested but also on the over all health and emotional state. Our health is dependent on the quantity and quality of the bacterial activity in both our soil and our intestines and these microbes are fed by vital organic material not from chemical fertilizers and inorganic vitamins and minerals.

SKIN: Exfoliant--ground rolled oats; chemical exfoliant--papaya juice; face pack and lymphatic gland pack--wheat grass juice mixed with bentonite clay and spirulina. Crude lanolin is the most effective skin treatment out there. I starting using it on my chapped feet, and it was the only thing that worked. But it has to be the sticky yellowish crude stuff, you don't want the white refined version that is mixed with mineral oil and who knows what.
