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.

mg, vitamin E 800iu, Propolis 500 mg 3 times per day, take Garlic pills
or fresh, and Primrose, Borage or Linseed oil. Use digestive enzymes or
raw food with every meal. Take at least one teaspoon per day of
Bentonite clay in a glass of water.
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

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.
¦The most effective colon cleansing system is Arise and Shine
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
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 foods...ie: 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.
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). Nuts brought from Jaffe Brothers are fresher
than those one finds in the store. 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
- 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.
Arise and Shine sells a product called Flora Grow which contains
Bacillus subtilus...which produces a large amount of catalase, an
important enzyme for the neutralization of harmful free radicals of
hydrogen peroxide produced from inadequate fat metabolism.
After the shock phase of the initial awakening, when the digestive
system has finished purging, then probiotics will help the GI tract
return faster to normal function. I would suggest several forms of
probiotic including Kefir. This needs to be researched so that you do
not take supplements such as Acidophilus which will produce excessive
amounts of lactic acid therefore producing an acid environment in the
bowel. And acid bowel will inhibit enzyme function, decrease alkaline
reserves, deplete electrolytes etc...
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 God knows what.
