foodmattersDetoxification is a normal process within the body as it neutralizes and eliminates toxins through the major organs such as our colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. Our bodies do it naturally every day, in fact it is one of our most basic automatic functions. But what if our self-cleaning system is overloaded by our unhealthy lifestyle and exposure to environmental
toxins?

Our chemical-laden diet, with an over abundance of animal protein, too much saturated fat and too much caffeine and alcohol radically alters our internal ecosystem. However even if your diet is good, a cleanse can restore your immune system and protect yourself against environmental toxins that pave the way for disease bearing bacteria, viruses and parasites.

Excerpt from The Program FoodMatters.pdf 

On Rising
Take a large glass and add the juice of 1 lemon and crush a thumbnail size piece of fresh ginger. Fill the rest of the glass with filtered water at room temperature.
Before breakfast
Prepare a Green Drink: Mix wheatgrass or barley grass powder and filtered water to make a green drink to alkalize and energize the cells of your body and accelerate the cleansing process. It will taste a little different to start with but as your bloodstream PH levels balance out your taste buds will adjust to the flavor. Follow the recommended serving size on the label.
Breakfast
‘Break your Fast’ with a fresh vegetable juice of 4 medium size carrots, 1 beetroot, 1 cucumber,
1 handful of baby spinach, # cup parsley. Take 1000 mg of Vitamin C and 2 x 1000 mg
flax seed oil capsules.

Between Breakfast and Lunch
Have a caffeine-free detoxifying tea of peppermint, ginseng, licorice root, ginger or chamomile or a special natural laxative tea. Drink more green drinks as you need it!
Lunch
Have a small to medium serving of brown rice with a mixture of raw and steamed vegetables (choose from broccoli, shiitake mushroom, bok choy, radish, arugula (rocket) leaves, spring
onion, watercress, garlic and ginger) season with sea greens and flavor with 1 cup of miso
soup or lemon juice and extra virgin olive. Take 1 x 1000 mg of Vitamin C.
Mid-Afternoon
Have another vegetable juice of carrot, apple and ginger to boost your energy levels.
Early Dinner
Have a freshly squeezed vegetable juice of 2 carrots, 2 tomatoes, handful of spinach leaves, 2 celery stalks, $ cucumber, $ red bell pepper (capsicum). Add one tablespoon of wheatgrass or barley grass powder. Take 1 x 1000 mg of Vitamin C.
Before Bed
Relax your body with a detoxifying tea of peppermint, lemon balm, licorice root, ginger or chamomile tea or fresh mint and green tea with cardamom pods. There you have it! Follow this program as closely as possible for a minimum of 3 days to really see the results. You can experiment with the vegetable juices throughout the day but just make sure you are not adding too many sweet fruits (ideally none at all) as these add to the sugar (acidic) load placed on the body which is what we are trying to avoid during this
cleanse.
If you get unbearably hungry then snack on a handful of almonds. You may also alternate the vegetable juice for lunch with a vegetable soup if desired (if you live in a cold climate then this will feel better). Throughout the detox you will notice that after the second day your body will be getting used to the routine and will not get such cravings. Most of all stick with it and the
results will soon follow.
