There is an overwhelming demand for advice on how to combine meals correctly, and herewith you find the ultimate answers to your questions. For example, many people enjoy having fruit for breakfast, since they realize it is the most energy-rich nourishment possible, they will continue to do so fanatically for the rest of their lives. On the other hand, others may enjoy a change, such as strawberries and whipped cream or fruit juice and buttered toast. And why not? It sounds tempting, doesn't it! That is exactly the reason I wrote this book. Various combination rules have been included to remain fit, slim and healthy in a responsible way but with sufficient variation in your diet. What are correct food combinations? With correct food combinations your food is digested without any side-effects. In order to avoid problems digesting you should drink fruit juice on an empty stomach. However if you drink fruit juice after eating bread, the fruit juice and the bread will ferment. You may feel dizzy or nauseous, or possibly even have heartburn. “Shoot!’ you might say then, “what a stomach ache!” Or: “Oh no, heartburn again.” “Why am I burping the whole time!?” Desperately you look for an answer. After going to several doctors, undergoing allergy tests, etceteras, you will not achieve anything, because while searching for a cause you will not be thinking about incorrect food combinations. One kind of food at a time. Combining food? I hear you ask. "What on earth is that?" I will tell you, the answer is hidden in nature. If you look at how animals behave, you will see they only eat one kind of food at a time. When a monkey eats mangos, he cannot eat another thing at the same time, since he cannot reach the berries. People, on the other hand mix everything. Result: fermentation and decay which may result in migraines or feeling nauseous. Can incorrect food combinations be dangerous? Most definitely. If you are allergic to incorrect food combinations, your resistance will decrease, which among other things may result in acne, asthma, diarrhea, heartburn, insomnia or severe migraines. Children, who are particularly susceptible to this, often suffer one illness after another. By combining food correctly continued bedwetting and hyper nervous behavior may be improved or even completely cured. Adults also have problems due to careless combining. I know, nearly everybody eats this way. French fries and steak. Sandwiches with chocolate or honey. Delicious! Pancakes and jam? Even better! These are exactly the eating habits you will regret in the long run; they may even make you extremely ill, just like drugs would. You may put on weight, or you may be affected by some degenerative disease, which will make you prematurely old. Chronic bronchitis and asthma are the results of incorrect food combinations, as are headaches and migraines. It is also the cause of widespread complaints like constipation, vomiting and other gastro-intestinal disorders. What happens to badly digested food? Incorrect food combinations, like bread and chocolate or potatoes and meat, release large amounts of toxic substances since neither the starch nor the meat are digested well. Acid decomposition products are released into your blood-stream and your resistance is weakened to the extent that harmful bacteria do not encounter any opposition. “My son has another ear infection!” you may exclaim in desperation. Or: “That is the second time this year I have had the flu!” Actually, you should not be surprised, because these illnesses are all due to bad eating habits. Furthermore, you feel everything but fit and you are easily troubled by stress. Allergies due to incorrect combinations. Many people do not feel very well after eating boiled or fried tomatoes. “I am allergic to them!” will be the most likely answer. Or: “I don’t like strawberries, because they give me acne!” I would like to clarify this. If you combine your food according to the laws of nature, a surprisingly large amount of allergies seem to disappear. For example, you will not be allergic to tomatoes, strawberries or citrus fruit. If you combine them correctly or eat them separately. A great deal of the allergy symptoms disappear
and you feel revitalized. Badly digested food always causes discomfort. Digested food, on the other hand, prevents indigestion and increases biological resistance. How can illnesses be prevented? Correct food combinations guarantee the best digestion, because you are taking into account the enzymatic limitations of the gastrointestinal system. Your food will digest better, which means you feel revitalized, incredibly healthy and bubbling with energy. The chance of your becoming ill is diminished. This is logical if you know the laws of nature. Laws of nature By eating according to the laws of nature your body will no longer need to put excessive energy into dismantling badly digested food. Not only will you be bubbling with energy, but you can be sure you will live longer. That is why you should not doubt the laws of combination or discourage natural eating habits, as described in this book. Within a few years natural eating habits will have world-wide recognition, as the only real protection against flu, asthma or bronchitis. Large numbers of people will be encouraged to follow this way of eating.
THE THREE MOST IMPORTANT DIGESTIVE ENZYMES
1. Amylase. The most important human digestive enzyme is amylase. It dismantles starch into glucose, which is easily absorbed by the body. With incorrect food combinations, amylase cannot work properly and the starch in bread, potatoes and rice is not absorbed sufficiently, releasing damaging decomposition products. The nutrients will not be absorbed by your body. You only have a fraction of your normal biological strength and you feel tired and depressed. And who wants that, I ask you? When is amylase activated? Prolonged chewing of starchy products activates the amylase enzyme. It will be abundantly present in your saliva to dismantle the long starch molecules into smaller components. Your digestion is functioning as it should and you feel well. The longer you chew, the more amylase is produced, and the sooner starch is digested. If you chew until you achieve a sweet taste in your mouth, your digestion is functioning properly. With correct combinations the enzyme also remains active in your stomach to dismantle the remaining starch. Sufficient chewing is essential for good digestion. What interferes with the activation of amylase? • If starch is not chewed sufficiently, not enough amylase is produced. The food will lay 'heavily' in your stomach and the starch ferments. • Amylase is an alkaline enzyme and is destroyed by acids. By drinking cola in combination with starchy products, digestion is made impossible. • Leavened bread cannot be digested. After reading the above-mentioned, this is obvious. Remember, the smallest amount of acid renders the amylase enzyme completely inactive. • Amylase is not secreted when you eat 'pre-soaked' starch. When you soak toast in herbal tea or eat macaroni, you are damaging your health. • The combination of sugar or fruit with starchy products also prevents the activation of amylase. To dismantle sugars (which are also present in fruit) your body does not need amylase. When your brain already registers a sweet taste, your saliva will not secrete amylase. • Strong alkaline products, like heartburn tablets and baking powder interfere with the activation of amylase. 2. Pepsin This enzyme is secreted in the stomach and is activated by hydrochloric acid. It dismantles proteins into smaller components such as polypeptides. These are dismantled by other enzymes into amino acids. Remember pepsin is essential in digesting proteins.
Without pepsin the other protein dismantling enzymes cannot perform their function. What interferes with the activation of pepsin? • Pepsin only functions in an acid environment. After eating meat or cheese and taking heartburn pills (alkaline products that neutralize the acid) the digestion of proteins is upset. • Cold drinks (including ice cubes in drinks) interfere with the production of pepsin and consequently upset your digestion. This can put a serious damper on your enjoyment of food! 3. Hydrochloric Acid Hydrochloric acid dismantles acids and proteins. It is secreted in the stomach. With incorrect food combinations, hydrochloric acid interferes with the digestion of starch . When is hydrochloric acid secreted? a. If you eat proteins, a large amount of hydrochloric acid is produced, and digestion is made possible. b. Strong substances irritate your stomach to such an extent they cause an acid reaction. The most important are: • Tea • Coffee • Alcohol • Garlic • Ginger • Pepper c. Sugar and honey also cause an acid reaction. This means strawberries and sugar or sandwiches with honey are incorrect combinations and a devastation to the healthier way of life you are striving for. d. White flour or products derived from this rapidly activate the production of hydrochloric acid. If you first eat light wholewheat bread or raw vegetables, you will avoid this undesired acid secretion, which renders starch indigestible. e. Hydrochloric acid is produced when fat is digested, but interferes with the digestion of starch. It means French fries cannot be sufficiently digested. Non-starchy vegetables counteract this acid secretion though. Eat them in large quantities before eating any fried or roasted food. f. As many smokers have experienced, smoking causes an acid secretion in the stomach. Smoking and healthy eating cannot go together. By smoking, both fruit and starch are insufficiently digested! This can lead to acidity of the stomach, an upset stomach or heartburn! g. Coffee also causes a strong acid secretion, particularly in cases of internal stress. Stomach cramps or diarrhea are possible outcomes. If you want to give up this extremely unhealthy habit, do this gradually. If you stop drinking coffee from one day to the next, you may suffer severe headaches or be extremely tired. Afterwards you will realize how badly you have been treating your body! How is stomach acid neutralized? For most people the remedy is obvious: pills against heartburn. These are consumed in very large quantities, mainly to counteract the effects of smoking, coffee and incorrect combinations. A warning is in place: regular use of such pills produces even more acid! You will feel even worse than before! Desperately you turn to your pills again which is how you end up in a vicious circle. Another consequence of these pills is that your stomach acid becomes too alkaline, which weakens your resistance against infections. Normally, germs are destroyed by stomach acid. Why run the risk when you can prevent the overproduction of stomach acid with correct food combinations? Or by giving up smoking and alcohol? Or by renouncing strongly spiced meals?
THE DIGESTION OF STARCH
The digestion of starch begins and ends in your mouth. Starch is the only food product to which this applies. The amylase enzyme
in your saliva is of overriding importance for a good digestion of starch. Without sufficient amylase, starch cannot be digested. The production of amylase is influenced by: 1. Fever When you are ill, your whole body is in a state of emergency. The secretion of enzymes is minimal. In fact, the amylase enzyme is completely inactive, because your saliva is not alkaline, but acid! Since amylase can only function in an alkaline environment and is destroyed by a small quantity of acid, it is obvious you cannot digest starch when you are ill. Sick people, both adults and children, should never eat starch when they are running a fever or have not recovered sufficiently. Medicines may bring the fever down, but the amylase enzyme will remain inactive for several days! You have probably experienced this yourself; when in the early stages of an infectious disease you try to eat, you really become ill! Eating when you start feeling ill is the worst thing to do! It is an old wives' tale that says you can recover from an illness by eating well. Now tell me, do you feel hungry when you are in bed with fever? Surely not! Your body is yearning for rest. It is the only way to successfully withstand an illness. When you are ill -- be it flu, bronchitis, an ear infection or any other illness -- you are only allowed fresh fruit juice or fruit tea (preferably of subtropical fruits). They are the only food products that do not require enzymes to be digested. Your body tolerates them well and you are able to recover. Any other food eaten when you are ill will decay. In the decomposition process a rich breeding ground is formed on which germs thrive. They will be able to multiply exponentially. Remember, you have a body temperature of 37°C or more. In these temperatures food decays rapidly and bacteria multiply at an incredible rate. You use a refrigerator to keep your food fresh longer, don't you? Do you know what happens when you put food next to the central heating? It starts to rot and becomes moldy! Similar processes occur in your body if your food is not digested well enough when you are ill! In other words, if you eat toast when you are ill, you are making yourself even more ill and it takes longer to recover. When you take antibiotics you are under the impression you are getting better. The consequences for the enzyme production are disastrous! It may take up to several weeks, or even months, before the enzyme production is normal again. Only then will you start feeling yourself again. 2. Eating Soaked Starch Amylase is only secreted in your saliva, when DRY starch is chewed for a sufficient period of time. • If you eat soaked starch, your saliva does not produce amylase. This is why pasta, soaked bread or soaked grains are not digested. Soaked starches are one of the main causes of diarrhea. Dry starch does not interfere with the production of amylase and digestion is able to function properly. When you eat potatoes make sure they are as dry as possible. This also applies to rice! • Drinking during your meal is bad. Drinking considerably decreases the production of the amylase enzyme. Amylase is transported from the stomach into the intestines, which brings the digestion of starch in the stomach to a standstill. This is why soup must be eaten fifteen to thirty minutes before the main meal! Only then can you be sure there will not be any liquid left in your stomach that could interfere with digestion! 3. Insufficient Chewing If you do not chew your food well, not enough amylase is produced. Food products containing starch will not be dismantled properly. Consequently, your food will not be digested! Other things to keep in mind: • Starch must be salt-free. If you eat bread containing salt, or if you add salt to potatoes, little amylase is secreted. Most people do not chew salted potatoes for the required length of time. By not using salt, you will learn to chew starch for the required length of time. If you continue using salt with bread, you will never be completely healthy. Think about it, salt is one of the most potent drugs! It is more addictive than coffee or alcohol! The degenerative processes it produces are so extensive, complete books have been written about it. • When you are in a hurry, nervous or excited you do not take enough time to chew. Consequently the starch will ferment. It is better not to eat at all, or if you do, eat very little and only drink fruit juice. • If you chew starch well, it is dismantled into glucose in your mouth. You notice this by the sweet taste well-chewed starch has. By eating like this, you can be sure your food is digested properly. Your biological power, as well as your sporting achievements will be increased considerably. So do it!
INSUFFICIENT CHEWING IS THE MOST IMPORTANT CAUSE OF BADLY DIGESTED STARCH
(BREAD, POTATOES, RICE)
CHEWING IS AN ART EVERYBODY CAN AND MUST PRACTICE !
ONLY WHEN YOU REGISTER A SWEET TASTE IN YOUR MOUTH, HAVE YOU CHEWED STARCH SUFFICIENTLY !
4. Coarsely Ground Whole-Wheat Bread When you examine whole-wheat bread thoroughly, you will notice many coarse particles (half-ground grains or seeds). Everybody thinks this is good roughage for your intestinal movement, but there are a few problems. Why? Starch can only be digested by the amylase enzyme in your saliva. Even when you chew COARSELY GROUND whole-wheat bread for a reasonable length of time, the coarse particles remain too large. The enzyme cannot penetrate the hard starch and cellulose nuclei. These remain undigested. You will notice this in your bowel movement: the half-ground grains and seeds will be excreted nearly intact. Only by chewing a coarsely ground whole-wheat sandwich for up to fifteen minutes would it be fine enough to be digested. Since this is never the case it is impossible to digest COARSELY GROUND whole-wheat bread. You will be troubled by flatulence, which can be extremely bothersome. What is unhealthy about bread that is difficult to digest? The undigested bread nuclei finally end up in your intestines via your stomach. Due to your body temperature of almost 37°C they start to decay. A whole series of poisonous substances like alcohol, carbonic acid, acetic acid and other acids are released. These substances are harmful for your intestines which in turn will have its effect on your immune system. Too much coarsely ground whole-wheat bread over a long period will eventually cause your health to deteriorate, notwithstanding the large amount of vitamins in the bread. This is mainly caused by the damage the coarse particles do to your intestinal wall which severely affects the absorption capacities of your intestines. The absorption of vitamins and minerals decreases to such an extent it could precipitate attacks of gout, rheumatism or other degenerative diseases. Remark: There is one exception: to make coarsely ground whole-wheat bread reasonably digestible, combine it with avocado, boiled carrots or any other easily digestible vegetables. Is white bread better? No. Chemically, it is digested easier because it does not contain coarse particles. On the other hand, an acid reaction is produced in your stomach. which brings the digestion of starch to a standstill. Mucus is produced, which is a strain for your mucous membranes. It makes you an easy victim to flu, throat infections or bronchitis. What bread should I eat then? To begin with, the flour must be GROUND AS FINELY AS POSSIBLE. That way you will prevent many digestive problems. A mixture of 50 percent white flour and 50 percent whole-wheat flour or a mixture of 75 to 85 percent wheat flour is recommended. This will give you an easily digestible loaf of bread and both the disadvantages of white bread and of coarsely ground whole-wheat bread will be excluded. What you are saying then is that COARSELY GROUND whole-wheat bread should be avoided on all accounts? Yes. More than 90 percent of the population has the greatest difficulty in digesting it. Children especially! One of the main causes is the degeneration of the intestinal tract caused by bad eating habits, un-abling us to dismantle and absorb coarse food
particles. Furthermore, grains are eaten incorrectly. Bread and jam or bread and honey are indigestible, so is bread and ham. Eaten with COARSELY GROUND whole-wheat bread it will produce a vigorous fermentation and decomposition in the intestines. With white bread, these damaging effects are not so clear-cut. Cultivated grain products with milk or fruit are also indigestible, and may have terrible consequences for your intestines. Starch cannot be digested sufficiently and that leads to processes comparable to what occurs in a manure heap -- not a very nice prospect! What can bread be combined with? Combine bread with non-starchy vegetables or slightly-starchy vegetables, rice and potatoes. You may also combine bread with fat -- butter, olive oil, boiled egg yolk (not the egg white), unsweetened cream or avocado. All other combinations are a strain on your digestion. Incorrect combinations, such as tomatoes and cucumber could even be harmful to your health. Obviously one slice of tomato will not do much harm, a whole tomato is too much. Incorrect combinations weaken your resistance. You will become ill with flu, throat infections, etc., because incorrect food combinations cause the enzymes to destroy each other and bacteria thrive on the fermenting and decaying food! If you combine your food correctly, the digestive juices are so powerful that all germs are destroyed. To aid you with this, I will give you the most important guidelines to digest bread. By following them, they can only benefit your health. Bread should be: • Salt-free. Bread contains 1 gram of salt per 100 gram. Many people still do not seem to know how unhealthy salt really is. • Prepared with little yeast. Yeast may lead to fermentation in the body. If you use 10 gram per 1 kilogram of flour there is no problem. Baking powder and sourdough make the bread indigestible. • Without added iron or vitamins. Many kinds of bread and other grain products are "improved" by the addition of extra vitamins and minerals. The problem is, iron accumulates in your body and may cause a chronic shortage of "active" iron molecules! Are you still surprised so many people are suffering from acute anemia? • Prepared without milk or dairy products. If you add milk to grain products, it can take up to six to twelve hours before this combination is digested. • Made from 80 percent bolted biological flour that hardly contains any phytic acid or other damaging acids. This way you spare your intestines from harm and the bread is properly digested. Coarsely ground bread is and will always be unhealthy! • Very finely ground. Only then is it easily digestible. People with weak intestines have to eat bread with a low concentration of whole-wheat flour. (for example: 40 percent whole-wheat flour + 60 percent white flour, or 65 to 70 percent wheat flour) 5. Babies Do Not Produce Amylase! All parents should know this. Young children, certainly those under two years of age, would not become ill anymore! They are incapable of digesting bread, potatoes or rice. When starch is eaten, it ferments in the stomach and intestines. Cramps, flatulence, or diarrhea are the most likely outcomes. Even more dangerous is the fact that their resistance is weakened to such an extent they are more susceptible to bacteria and viruses. The diet of a healthy baby, consists of mother's milk supplemented with fresh fruit juice. Nothing else! As you can see, the diet for children, up to two years old, is extremely easy and incredibly healthy. An example: 7 a.m. 11 a.m. - 12 a.m. 1 p.m. 6 p.m. - 7 p.m. 8 p.m.
: breast feeding or fruit juice : fresh grape juice or the juice of sub-acid fruit. : breast feeding : fresh orange juice or grapefruit or tomato juice. : breast feeding
Canned fruit juice or from a packet is absolutely out of the question, they cause vigorous fermentation or decomposition and interfere with the baby's digestion. Quantities: younger than three months : 75 centiliter (per feeding) three to six months : 150 centiliter (per feeding) older than six months : 200 centiliter (per feeding) Times between feeding must be consistent! Children older than two years of age can be put on a combination diet, if during the morning they receive a lot of fruit juice and solid fruit! Only by following these guidelines will your child be protected from disease. 6. Change of Time Schedule
Between midnight and six in the morning, the amylase enzyme is inactive. If you eat starch between these hours, it will not be digested sufficiently. People working irregular hours have to realize this. Only fresh fruit or fresh fruit juice should be consumed if they want to feel revitalized. NO OTHER FOOD PRODUCT CAN BE DIGESTED BETWEEN THESE HOURS. Stomach ulcers and depressions can be prevented. Instead of eating, drink spring water or fruit tea. Does this also apply when I go on long airplane journeys? Of course. When you arrive in a different time zone, your body needs time to adjust. In the country of destination it may be daytime for example, while your body is still in its night rhythm. The same applies to working in shifts. Eating starch during night shifts causes discomfort, bad digestion, insomnia and a longer period of adjustment. What is the best way to adjust to a changing time schedule? The most important thing to take into consideration is the strain you are putting your body under. It is much easier for your adjustment mechanism to get used to going to bed later than to going to bed earlier. So when you work in shifts, it should be attuned to this. Remember: early shift -- night shift -- late shift is 50 percent more tiring than early shift -- late shift -- night shift. For airplane journeys the same principle applies. Going to bed later, demands less adjustment than going to bed earlier. What should you do when you go on long airplane journeys. • Traveling from Northern Europe to New York, does not cause any problems. The clock is six hours behind. If you leave in the morning you arrive in New York in the early evening. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR LAST MEAL AT ABOUT 11.00 P.M. EUROPEAN TIME. In New York it will be 5 p.m. If you do not follow this schedule, insufficient amounts of amylase will be released and your food will only be partially digested, resulting in sleeplessness ! If you are still on the plane at approximately 11.00 p.m. EUROPEAN TIME, make sure you eat well. Take it easy afterwards and go to bed as early as possible on arrival in New York. Eating after 11.00 p.m. European time interferes with your adjustment and it may bother you for several days. Only fruit is easily digested! The best thing to do on arrival is to spend as much time as possible in the sun or light (artificial light also). Bright light seems to restore your day and night rhythm in no time at all. If you are hungry, eat fruit. Continue until the following day and only have fresh fruit or fruit juice until 12 a.m. Preferably as much as possible. That way you will adjust immediately and the second day you will feel adjusted instead of drowsy, sleepy or bad tempered • Traveling from New York to Europe, the opposite applies. HAVE YOUR LAST GOOD MEAL AT 11.00 P.M. NEW YORK TIME AT THE LATEST. ANOTHER SOLUTION IS TO ONLY EAT FRUIT BECAUSE NO ENZYMES ARE REQUIRED FOR DIGESTION. If you only eat fruit on the day of departure and arrival, your body will adjust immediately to the new time zone! What about people working in shifts? On their last night of work they have to do the same as people making long airplane journeys, because their time schedules are also changing. People working in shifts are staying a week in Paris, a week in Tokyo, and a week in Australia so to speak. Can you imagine anything more tiring. What should you do when you are working night shifts? • Rest or sleep three to four hours before your first night. • Make sure there is a lot of light in the room you are working in. Your internal clock will have less problems switching from night to day. • Do not eat starch after 11.00 p.m.! Five hours after this meal you can eat fruit (steamed bananas for example). Only eating fruit the first night is the best solution. Schedule for the first night: Possibility 1: 4 p.m.- 6 p.m. : rest or sleep 6.30 p.m. : good meal 7 p.m.- 9 p.m. : rest 9 p.m.- 6 a.m. : fruit tea or water. Fresh fruit or fruit juice are allowed after 11.00 p.m. 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. : sleep Possibility 2: 4 p.m.- 6 p.m.
: rest or sleep
6.30 p.m. 7 p.m.- 9 p.m. 10 p.m. 5 a.m. 8 a.m.- 4 p.m.
: fresh fruit : rest : meal with starch (for example sandwiches with avocado) : fresh fruit (apple, pear or steamed banana) : sleep
After waking up: 4 p.m. : fresh fruit juice. No meal with starch, otherwise your internal clock will not adjust 8 p.m.- 9 p.m. : fresh fruit or a meal with starch 2 a.m. - 4 a.m. : starch meal. After the last night shift: • Do not eat before going to bed! • Sleep four hours at the most. Afterwards, only have fruit, or drink fruit tea or fruit juice. Do not eat any starch! Your internal clock still thinks it is midnight which means you are not producing amylase and you are unable to digest starch! It is not until the evening your amylase producing mechanism starts functioning again! Only then are you allowed a decent meal! Go outside or stay in an illuminated environment after your four hour sleep. Light changes your amylase producing schedule. This, together with fruit, is the quickest way to readjust! Only drink fresh fruit juice or fruit tea. If you like sports, go for walk in the woods, go for a jog, or a swim (this will wake you up immediately and assure you of a quick adjustment). If you follow this advice, almost immediately, your life will be all the more pleasant. Time schedule for people working: • early shift • late shift Whether you’re working the early shift or late shift, try following normal eating patterns. This means: Breakfast: fresh fruit juice or fresh fruit Lunch: fresh fruit juice, fresh fruit, vegetables or starch. Dinner: vegetables, starch or proteins. These schedules do not differ much from a normal day schedule. In case of difficulties an extra fruit meal will solve all problems. 7. Tiredness If you eat immediately after doing physical activity you are not producing sufficient saliva or amylase and consequently digestion of starch will not take place. Your stomach just cannot function properly when you are exhausted. You experiences this when you are too tired to eat. You should rest for half an hour or an hour before eating. Is fruit juice allowed after physical activity? After more than an hour of physical activity, fruit juice is the only food product capable of restoring your strength. After consuming juice you must wait at least an hour before your next meal containing starch. Carrot juice, when drunk an hour before eating a meal containing starch, improves your digestion considerably. How long should I wait after a meal before exercising? After a fruit juice breakfast, you are allowed to exercise after approximately half an hour to an hour. Meals containing starch require up to three or four hours. If you exercise immediately after eating a meal containing starch, the supply of blood to the stomach and the contractions of the stomach cease. The digestive process will suffer considerably, which causes food to decompose. Am I allowed to work immediately after a meal? After a meal containing starch, rest for approximately an hour. Don’t forget, a large amount of blood has gone to your stomach. You will find it difficult to concentrate physically or mentally, which is why you must rest after a meal containing starch. Do not stress and avoid strenuous work. After a meal consisting of fruit you do not feel the need to rest. You feel revitalized and you can go hard at it! Pay attention though! After a large meal consisting of fruit it is advisable to take things easy for a while.
8. Excitement, Pain, Fear, Uncertainty, Worry. When you are excited, worried or in pain, acid is secreted in your stomach. This acid interferes with the digestion of starch and the breaking down of food particles! Is quarreling at the table bad for your health? Quarreling causes cramp in your muscles. Your stomach becomes immobile and a large quantity of acid is secreted over the food. The adrenaline level in your blood shoots up. No matter how healthy the food combinations are, they are not digested. Refrain from exciting stories, jealous or snappy remarks. They ruin your health. Why eat healthily just to have it destroyed in your stomach by worry, uncertainties, anger, rage or hostility. Spite and envy will drive you to an early grave. Envious people are causing irreparable damage to their bodies. They age quicker and will suffer degenerative diseases. Sadness, trouble and affliction, sorrow and love sickness also interfere with the production of digestive enzymes and increase the secretion of acid. It is not unusual for older people to die soon after losing their partner. Only a strict fruit diet could have saved them. Sexual stimulation also interferes with a good digestion. Rest and relaxation on the other hand, improve your digestion. 9. Eating Before a Warm Bath or a Sauna. Warm baths or saunas within four hours of having eaten, are inadvisable. After five hours, saunas can be fantastic boosts to your health. The explanation is simple: when you have eaten, blood goes to your stomach to stimulate the digestion process. When you have warm baths or saunas, blood is circulated all over the body to protect it from overheating. Digestion stops and food ferments. Bacteria gain the upper hand. Dormant illnesses really break through after saunas or warm baths. The decaying food in your body is a rich nutrient for pathogenic organisms. When you are running a fever, the production of enzymes is low, and food is not digested. Due to your higher body temperature the food decays easier. Result: you become more ill than you already were. Eating when you have a serious infectious disease is bad for you. Nor is eating just before a warm bath, because your food has not been digested yet. How about baths or saunas before meals? Only if you take a cold bath or a cold shower afterwards, so the blood circulates normally again. Eating when you have not cooled down sufficiently, is bad for you. It can cause diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, sleeplessness or headaches. Tip: eat a little extra for lunch and go to the sauna in the evening on an empty stomach.
INCORRECT FOOD COMBINATIONS
With the information from the preceding chapter you can figure out when starch is digested and when it is not. This is of crucial importance to your health and I advise you to study this information well. You will avoid a great deal of trouble. Incorrect food combinations often have a paralyzing effect on your body which drain you of energy. Besides allergies headaches, diarrhea, constipation and sleeplessness are only a few of the many consequences of incorrect food combinations. The most important will be discussed. 1. Eating sweets or fruit with starch One of the worst ways to eat starch is with sugar, sweets or fruit. If your body registers sugar (jam, honey, raisins apples, etc.) amylase is not secreted in your saliva. Your body is deceiving itself. Sugar does not require enzymes to be dismantled. When your body registers sugar, it will not secrete any enzymes, because it would interfere with digestion. Starch, on the other hand, can only be broken down by the amylase enzyme. The smallest trace of sugar neutralizes the production of amylase though. When you eat bread and jam or honey, amylase is not secreted and starch not digested! A starch meal combined with sugar remains in the stomach for a much longer period of time. To be precise: bread remains in the stomach for approximately four hours, while bread and jam can stay in the stomach for up to eight hours or more! Singular sugars decay very quickly when they remain in the stomach for too long. Unpleasant consequences may be heartburn or flatulence. Pills to neutralize stomach acid can alleviate the pain, but they do not stop the fermentation process. Much of the starch is indigestible and will be broken down into toxic substances.
How do you ever expect to get into top shape when you are spreading honey or jam on your bread? Or to become healthy and slim again when you are using sweet tasting sugar replacements in your tea or coffee? Your body’s reaction is the same in both cases: no amylase secretion! Fruit cake, currant bread or apples and bread are unnatural combinations and cause serious digestive problems. You become depressed, because a lot of energy is put into your malfunctioning digestion. A meal like that is just as taxing for your body as an hour of intensive exercise. Eating correct food combinations saves an enormous amount of energy. Almost immediately you will feel much better and able to achieve more than you ever dreamed possible! 2. Adding acid • When you have tomatoes with bread the dismantling function of the amylase enzyme is stopped in your mouth. The alkaline amylase enzyme is destroyed by the citric acid and the oxalic acid in the tomatoes. After boiling the tomatoes these acids will be even more damaging! Are you still surprised you do not feel well after eating boiled tomatoes with potatoes and bread? • The same happens when you add vinegar or lemon to lettuce and you eat it with potatoes. Mayonnaise based on vinegar or lemon is so concentrated, the acids neutralize the amylase. Your body just cannot digest these combinations! • Bananas contain starch and should never be combined with acid fruits! Other dried fruits also contain starch, which renders them indigestible when combined with acid fruit. • Spinach, cucumber and other acid vegetables should never be eaten with potatoes, rice or bread. They contain more than enough acid to neutralize amylase! • Drinking orange juice or grape fruit juice just before eating starch is not good either. The free acids are so concentrated that the amylase is rendered inactive almost immediately. This combination will give you diarrhea or stomach cramps. • The acids in fruit require about twenty minutes to leave the stomach. So when you drink a glass of fruit juice you must wait about twenty minutes before eating starch! After two glasses wait at least half an hour. • Strawberries, sour apples and pineapples also contain concentrated acids. Do not combine with bread or any other type of starch! • Lemon in herbal tea neutralizes amylase. • Ordinary tea also contains acids and seriously interferes with the dismantling function of the starch enzyme . 3. Combining starch and proteins There is an enormous difference between eating bread and eating bread with cheese or meat. Pavlov, a Russian biochemist and expert on animal behavior found ample evidence of this in the beginning of the twentieth century. He discovered that if you only eat bread, a lavish amount of pepsin is secreted in the stomach over a long period. This is a neutral juice and does not interfere with the digestion of starch. After digestion, a small but active amount of hydrochloric acid can be found in the stomach. This is needed to digest the last protein remnants in the bread. Thanks to this automatic process, both the starch and the protein in bread are digested. Difficulties arise when you combine proteins and starch. From the start, the stomach acid is of a completely different composition. Proteins like meat, cheese, nuts, eggs, etceteras, cause a strong acid secretion in the stomach. The smallest amount of hydrochloric acid is sufficient to bring the digestion of starch to an abrupt halt. Potatoes with meat, beans with starch or rice with chicken are just a few of many unhealthy combinations. Your whole digestive mechanism is confused and neither starch or protein is dismantled. Enormous amounts of toxic substances are released. When you eat a hamburger you experience an overwhelming feeling of satisfaction and languidness. What powerful food, you think! Don't kid yourself! Only because this combination is like a stone in your stomach do you have this feeling! Instead of energy, the only thing achieved is overtime for your glands and a complete disruption of your digestion. Pizzas are hardest to digest, because cheese is so concentrated. Only with extreme effort can cheese be somewhat broken down. Beans contain approximately 25 percent proteins and 50 percent starch, which is why they are difficult to digest. Fried beans are better than boiled beans; in this relatively dry state they are easy to chew. If you do this slowly some of the starch can be broken down in your mouth. This way they will cause least trouble. 4. Starch and fat Although starch and fat can be combined without too many serious problems, you have to be extremely careful with them. All other food products eaten at the same time will remain in the stomach for a longer period of time. A small amount of butter or egg yolk is sufficient to prolong the digestion period with more than two hours. If you get stressed about something or if you even exert yourself slightly a strong breeding ground is formed for a fermentation process. To avoid the negative consequences of such a combination there are many things you can do: • Eat non-starchy vegetables in combinations with starch and fat. This improves the stomach function and the digestion of fat is accelerated. • Replace butter with avocado. This fruit combines better with bread, because avocado only needs three hours to be digested (bread needs four hours). It is possible to spread avocado on sandwiches just like butter! On top of that they are packed with vitamins and minerals.
• Heated fat (like frying fat) should be avoided, because the digestion period is prolonged considerably. If you are allergic to it you run the risk of diarrhea and heartburn. • Lightly boiled egg yolks are often better digested than raw eggs. Raw egg yolk mixed with potatoes or vegetables also seems to improve digestion. About the contamination of raw egg yolks with Salmonella, I must point out that this is only possible with dishes in which raw egg yolks have been used in the preparation. If these dishes are eaten within an hour, there is no danger whatsoever, because the bacteria cannot multiply. If you let a dish with raw egg yolks stand for a day or longer, the bacteria have been given the chance to multiply. And that is when the problem starts. No one will become ill due to the number of Salmonella bacteria in a raw egg. The danger lies in the number of hours the dish has a temperature higher than 10°C. When the temperature is higher the bacteria start to multiply. Cooling down quickly and storing in a cool place is very important when using raw egg yolks. Boiling lightly or frying prevents all problems! 5. Combining proteins Different types of proteins (such as meat and nuts) require different digestion periods and a different enzyme composition. Two similar types of nuts may be combined because the digestion period is about the same. When eating meat the strongest juice is secreted during the first hour of digestion. With nuts and milk this occurs much later. Consequently one protein cannot be digested and decomposition is inevitable. This decomposition-process will also affect the other protein, which means neither protein is properly dismantled into amino acids. Examples of bad protein combinations are eggs and milk, cheese and nuts, milk and nuts. 6. Combining proteins and acids The pepsin enzyme digests proteins. It is only active in an environment of hydrochloric acid. • Added acids, like vinegar, lemon juice on fish and pineapple interfere with the secretion of hydrochloric acid. • Tomato juice or grapefruit juice, with a meal containing proteins, interfere with the secretion of hydrochloric acid and pepsin because they are so concentrated. Besides that, acids destroy pepsin. So don’t touch them, if you want to digest proteins! • Nuts and cheese are the only exceptions to the last rule. They do not decay as quickly because they contain a large quantity of fat. Orange juice and nuts digest relatively easy, because the acids slow the secretion of hydrochloric acid just as long as the oil of the nuts or the fat in the cheese. 7. Combining sugar and proteins Sugars are not digested in your mouth or stomach but go directly to the intestines. Sugars remain in the stomach (with the proteins) until the proteins are digested. In the meantime the fermentation-process has already started. In this process acids are released which interfere with the secretion of hydrochloric acid. Consequently nuts and raisins are an indigestible combination. • Do not combine sub-acid fruits with nuts or cheese. They ferment quickly and interfere with the production of hydrochloric acid. Papaya with cheese or meat is not a good combination, although it is often recommended because of the digestive enzymes in papaya! 8. Combining fat and protein Fat slows down the digestion of all food. It reduces the muscular tension of the stomach. • Fat brings the secretion of hydrochloric acid and pepsin to a stop. Proteins cannot be digested and decomposition sets in. • Fats such as cream, butter and oil may not be eaten with eggs or meat. They slow down digestion to such an extent, proteins are not digested. • A little fat may be eaten with nuts and cheese because these are naturally fat. Greasy meat on the other hand is indigestible. 9. Combining fruit and vegetables Everybody knows fruit and vegetables are healthy. Few people know they should not be combined with each other. Fruit requires other enzymes for digestion than vegetables do. By combining them, your are interfering with the enzymes. The large amounts of fibrous tissue in fruit and vegetables, produce fermentation and alcohol. Your intestines respond with stomach ache, severe flatulence or diarrhea. That is why one of the most important rules of a healthier way of living is to avoid combinations of fruit and vegetables. This advice could save you from a lot of discomfort! When fruit ferments, alcohol is always released. Wine for example, is produced from fermented grape juice, banana liqueur from fermented bananas. Unripe or overripe fruit, or mushy fruit, easily lead to fermentation, which is why fruit always has to be ripe and the overripe parts have to be thrown away. Eating a large amount of unripe fruit can lead to liver damage due to excessive alcohol production. This also applies to overripe fruit. If you are not used to alcohol, it can cause considerable trouble. It may manifest itself in a feeling of dizziness. 10. The disadvantages of strong herbs and spices
I don't often add herbs to recipes. The reason for this is simple: HERBS AND SPICES INCREASE YOUR APPETITE! Losing weight is difficult when you add herbs and spices! By creating this appetite overeating is inevitable. Even when you are not hungry, the tendency to overeat is great. Salt also increases your appetite. An important fact, considering that 90 percent of the population is overweight. Only for athletes an exception can be made because they are obliged to eat a lot. I would like to advise everybody against the use of salt, herbs and spices. Pepper, ginger, mustard, cayenne and horseradish irritate the stomach to such an extent they cause an acid reaction and as a result both carbohydrates and proteins are not digested. They remain in the stomach for a much longer period of time. Quite often the irritation caused by adding herbs and spices is so strong, you create an unnatural appetite! Your stimulated stomach and intestinal tract send out such overwhelming hunger signals you want to eat, eat and carry on eating! Even when you had already eaten too much! Just like an alcoholic who cannot stop drinking, even when he has difficulties standing on his own two feet! Regular use of herbs and spices thickens the membranes of the mouth, esophagus, intestines and bowels. In a further degenerative stage they harden to such an extent they can damage your stomach and intestinal tract. Dr. Boix from Paris proved conclusively that pepper hardens blood vessels. He also proved that pepper causes cirrhosis of the liver (a typical alcoholic’s ailment) quicker than gin! Vinegar (separately or in mayonnaise) also seems to cause liver degeneration quicker than gin! Eventually spices and herbs will lead to irreparable damage to the stomach, intestines, kidneys, blood vessels and heart. Indigestion, chronic stomach infection, stomach ulcers and cancer are the consequence. Don’t forget the unnatural appetite it causes, with obesity the result. 11. Eat fruit or vegetables before starch It does not matter whether you combine food correctly or not, always eat fruit or vegetables first and then the concentrated food (like bread, potatoes, rice, fat or proteins) because fruit and vegetables improve your stomach function. They also activate a lot of other glands, which means you will be better prepared to dismantle food that is difficult to digest. If you eat fruit or vegetables after or together with concentrated food, your digestion will not run as smoothly. With fruit this can lead to considerable problems, because when eaten with starch it will ferment. Eating bananas on bread or after having eaten bread can cause flatulence. But if you eat the bananas before the bread the discomfort is reduced to a minimum! Eating vegetables with starch, is not ideal either! As you already know starch has to be eaten as dry as possible. If you start putting vegetables between rolls or sandwiches, you produce less amylase. This is because your brain registers more liquid. Your body thinks there is less starch and will secrete less amylase. The starch is not digested well and may ferment. Vegetables combined with potatoes will not digest well either. If you eat the vegetables before the potatoes your digestion will run a lot smoother! You can make your potatoes more appetizing by adding egg yolk, avocado, butter or cream. And when eating sandwiches or rolls a bit of butter or avocado will give the often dry starch a delicious taste. I know, healthy eating is not always easy, but sometimes subtle changes like these can be enormously beneficial. What is the most natural way of living? Apart from correct food combinations there are a few other important guidelines that need to be followed if you want your food to digest well: 1) AVOID STRESS. Fear, worries, anxiety or excitement have a negative influence on your digestion. Avoid stress as much as possible. On the other hand, laugh a lot and develop a calm lifestyle. Learn how to deal with setbacks, however difficult this may be. 2) MAKE SURE YOU RECEIVE AS MUCH FRESH AIR AS POSSIBLE. Leaving a window ajar can bring fast relief for headaches, caused by bad air. This can be of great importance in the office. A walk in the countryside often works wonders. 3) MAKE SURE YOU RECEIVE SUFFICIENT SUNSHINE. Children need more sunshine than adults. It is all right to let them run around outside in thin clothes or even naked but always avoid the fierce midday sun. The best to be in the sun is before 11: 00 a.m. and after four o’clock in the evening! 4) REST SUFFICIENTLY. Insufficient rest or sleep is an incredible strain on your concentration. Your body is not functioning well and you feel tense! Eating at such moments is fatal for your digestion. Half an hour or an hour's rest before eating can do wonders. Make sure you do nothing too-strenuous, physically or mentally, just before or after eating. You will regret it!

TIMES OF MEALS
When, or how often should I eat? This is a recurring question. The answer can be found in the digestive processes. Analysis has shown that most fruit components digest quickly. The cellulose components remain in the stomach for up to four hours though. The same applies to vegetables. Starch and proteins remain in the stomach for more than four hours, that is, if they are eaten separately. If you combine fruit, vegetables, proteins and starch incorrectly, they are not digested well and may remain in the stomach for up to eight or twelve hours! Greasy food like fat, meat and cheese, is not digested well, even when eaten separately. It remains in the stomach for longer than eight hours. If you combine your food, including fruit, correctly, it takes approximately four hours before everything has left the stomach. It is advisable not to eat anything else during this period. Why? If you eat any other food within those four hours, it will interfere with the whole digestive process. Let me explain this: You eat a pear in the morning. After an hour you eat a piece of chocolate. In your stomach, the chocolate comes into contact with the remaining cellulose, which is where the problem starts. These indigestible particles react as a catalyst. If they come into contact with a carbohydrate, fermentation is inevitable. Sugar especially reacts strongly and a large part is dismantled into alcohol, acetic acid and carbonic acid which are all toxic. People who are allergic to them may even get drunk! An alcohol test indicates alcohol although you have not touched any! Others may feel dizzy, suffer from acid digestion or have an allergic reaction which could result in an asthma attack, depending on the debilitated state of your body.
Won't you feel it? You may. It is also possible that people with a strong digestive system experience little or no direct discomfort for years from eating between meals. But when the consequences of neglecting these rules become evident, their health will go downhill sharply. People who experienced problems at a young age by mixing everything, shall become more careful and start taking precautions. By taking more care of their diet and eating fruit correctly, they are giving their body the necessary head start so their body can function smoothly for longer. It is the same with rust on a car, if you treat it in time, the body work will last longer. Once rusted through, only the junk pile will await it. Are there any other examples of bad eating habits? Certainly. Your lunch for example contains a lot of starch (sandwiches, potatoes, rice). I have told you, starch needs up to four or five hours to leave the stomach. If you stop eating at 1 p.m., this meal will remain in your stomach until five o’clock in the evening. Now if you drink a glass of fruit juice at four o’clock, you bring the further digestion of starch to an abrupt halt. The fruit juice remains in your stomach and because of the starch it will ferment. The consequences depend on two factors. If it concerns fibrous starch, like coarsely ground whole-wheat bread or unpolished rice the problems are most obvious. This also applies to fruit juice: the more juice and the more fibrous, the more serious the consequences. Two glasses of juice after whole-wheat bread can cause serious diarrhea the following day. In other words, the fermented fruit juice and starch are leaving your stomach and intestinal tract together with lots of vitamins and minerals. Now do you understand why you can feel so ill, while the previous day you drank "healthy and fresh" fruit juice? If you eat white bread, the consequences are less severe, because white bread, like meat, causes constipation. In other words, eating in between meals is always harmful? Yes, eating between meals always interferes with a good digestion. It may catch up on you the following days, because food takes up to 24 to 48 hours to evacuate the body. You may not feel well, because your body is "attempting" to prepare the food for digestion, which is impossible of course. You feel drained of energy and weak, apathetic and too tired to do anything. Even thinking is hard. So prevent these discomforts by eating three, or four meals a day at the most! Am I allowed to drink fresh fruit juice all morning? You may, on condition that it is not too fibrous. The more acidic the fruit, the better for your digestion, because acids suppress fermentation. The juice of sweet and sub-acid fruit ferments very easily. Particularly in combination with any other remaining fibers, juices of other sweet tasting fruits easily decay. And remember, drinking slowly is vital for good digestion! What are the best things to eat after drinking fresh juice? Depending on the amount of juice you drank, it is all right to eat a pear, a banana, or a sandwich soon afterwards. If you had quite a lot of juice (three glasses) it is best to wait for four hours, before eating anything else. It is all right to eat dry bread containing few fibers (nothing else!). This will not ferment too quickly. After eating a sandwich you must wait another four hours. If the bread was buttered lightly, you have to wait approximately five hours. If you find this explanation somewhat confusing, look at the breakfast possibilities where everything is explained again. It is impossible to go wrong then! NEVER EAT BEFORE GOING TO BED! A lot of people eat fruit, chips or cookies while watching television at night, without asking themselves if their stomach is able to digest these "snacks." Can't it then? No, far from it! Fruit especially decays easily. Your dinner has not been digested yet. When you eat again uncontrollable fermentation processes are caused. Your body will prepare this food for digestion. Your digestive mechanism is running at full throttle: digestive enzymes are being produced in massive quantities, your insulin production increases, your blood is being drawn to your intestines, etceteras. Basically, your body is bracing itself to digest this "snack." Is that why I feel so tired in the mornings? Exactly, your body has been digesting this decaying food all night and consequently you do not feel rested in the mornings. Sometimes even exhausted, or numb. This is logical if you think how hard your glands stomach, pancreas, kidneys, spleen and excretion organs have had to work to get "rid of" all toxic products. Prevent these "morning-sickness blues" by avoiding snacks before going to bed
In other words, eating late is also unhealthy? Right again! It is obvious you are starting to understand the processing of food in your body. Indeed, if you eat late at night, your food has not been digested when you go to bed. Food remains in the stomach for approximately four hours if it was combined correctly. In case of a fat-rich meal this becomes at least five to six hours; for an incorrectly combined meal, eight hours or more. If you go to bed on a full stomach, the remaining food will ferment and decay. Your vitality decreases considerably and you feel drained in the mornings. Now do you understand why you cannot get going in the morning after a late or sumptuous meal? That was in the past! You will not regret it! Considering of the mood altering nature of the toxic substances you get excited, will clarify the consequences all the more. It may manifest itself in restless sleeping, waking up several times and bad dreams. Sometimes the jaw muscles and the roof of the mouth relax with such consequences as: snoring or dribbling saliva. Not a pleasant experience of course! Instead of getting up rested, you are utterly exhausted after a late meal. In a daze, you stumble to the bathroom. Exhausted you look into the mirror. ‘Is that me?,’ you wonder, horrified, when you see that hollow-eyed, swollen face. Feeling even worse than you already were, you attempt to make that pale, hung-over face presentable again. You should have thought of that the previous night: your body has suffered too much already. How can I prevent that? By taking the following measures: • Waiting at least four hours before going to bed after your last meal. • Do not eat anything after dinner. Fruit, chocolate, sweets and vegetables are extremely bad for your health! • Do not eat too much dinner.
WHEN SHOULD I DRINK AND HOW MUCH AM I ALLOWED TO DRINK?
Drinking is not natural. It is a modern day custom. Gorillas in the tropics hardly ever drink, even though they live in a far warmer climate than we do. Have you ever seen a gorilla drinking coffee with his neighbors? Or an orang-outang having a drink at the bar with his pals? Of course this is only a joke, but it reminds you that anthropoids seldomly drink. So the fact that we do drink, even though we live in a colder climate, needs some explanation. What is behind all this? You drink because you do not eat natural food. Intuitively you already knew this though. Actually there is nothing new in what I am saying. By thinking about it, it will help you understand. Natural food, i.e. vegetables and fruit contain considerable amounts of water. And because of this you hardly need to drink anymore. By following a fruit diet, you will experience this yourself. Normally this diet consists of 5 kg fruit a day. This seems like a lot, but is necessary if you want to live solely on fruit, like anthropoids. This quantity of fruit contains about 85% water, which is about 3 liters More than enough to lessen your thirst! After eating bread or rice, I am incredibly thirsty! "Are you surprised?" Fruit is full of water. Grains and rice contain negligible amounts of water. That is why you must prepare (boil and fry) them to make them digestible. In other words, you are changing the structure of grains and rice, in order to decrease the high amount of carbohydrates. The cellular structure breaks open and this makes it possible for the grains and rice to absorb some water. The volume of rice is increased by boiling. One cup of dry rice results in nearly three cups of boiled rice. That is how you are artificially changing the structure of grains and fruit into something resembling fruit. This only applies to the water concentration. I still have not come to the end of my explanation about the difference in water richness between fruit and grains. Dry bread and boiled rice are still too concentrated. You lack the water rich juice and you feel thirsty. You resolve this by drinking water, soft drinks, coffee, etc. with your sandwiches. You also have soup or a drink with your dinner to quench the feeling of thirst. You also may drink a lot in between meals as well as during your meals. Am I addicted to coffee and cola then?! Yes, I am afraid that for many people caffeine is an everyday drug. This toxic is so strong your body needs two months to purify itself. If you drink coffee or cola, your regenerative abilities, (the ability to cure yourself) have been strongly weakened. The biological decay of your body is caused by roasting the coffee beans. Un-roasted, they already contain five percent less tannic acid! Coffee beans have a contracting effect on the glands of the stomach which is exactly the opposite of what it should be: relaxing. These damaging substances are also abundant in ordinary TEA (teaïne). In natural hygiene, tea is noted for its harmful effects on
your health. Soft drinks are also extremely harmful. In other words, the toxic limit of your body is being exceeded. This will inevitably lead to an early decay of biological power. But why is it then that I feel "a different person" after I have had my cup of coffee? Alas, then you are already completely addicted! The addiction is comparable to sleeping pills and tranquilizers. At first you experience a seemingly beneficial influence and you think you have been sleeping better. You calm down after taking a valium. Although partial or complete collapse are unavoidable: you will become a nervous wreck or an insomniac if you carry on using tranquilizers. In your case, it means you are relying on energy-providing coffee or cola to get through the day. The result is that you cannot go without, just like a person who is addicted to soft drugs. It may sound harsh, but it is the truth. If you are honest with yourself, you will have to admit you are unbalanced, not functioning the way you should and you cannot concentrate, until you have had your "cup of coffee" or "cola", read caffeine. Is this really that bad? A cup of coffee now and again will not do much harm, but if you drink it very day eventually your nerves will wear down. You are saddling your body with opposing toxins: sleep-inducing and tranquilizing substances that are blocking your nerve centers, and coffee and cola that are activating them again. Because of all these opposing signals your nerves will start losing their resistance. They will weaken to such an extent they will be unsuitable for normal use. If you have become nervous and shaky after drinking too much coffee you have experienced this. If you are a regular coffee, tea or cola drinker, you will not find it easy to kick the habit. Only by GRADUALLY cutting down is it possible to prevent the worst withdrawal symptoms. But even then many will suffer from migraines, tiredness, nerves and irritability. Others will start consuming chocolate or chocolate milk, because chocolate also contains considerable amounts of caffeine. Caffeine is one of the reason why many people become addicted to chocolate. Do not fall into the same trap, otherwise you will go from one addiction to another! Remember, coffee, cola and tea can be linked to rheumatism, neuritis, cancer and several degenerative diseases! My father for example was addicted to chocolate. Three to five bars a day! And he liked sugar in his tea! It left him with diabetes, he was constantly ill and finally died of his sixth heart attack. Since then I personally never touch sugar or chocolate anymore. I hope this will make you think twice. Is water allowed? If you drink plenty of fruit juice or eat enough vegetables there is no need for extra fluids. It would actually be unwise. Look at plants. If you give them just enough water, they will blossom nicely. If you give them too little they shrivel up. Add some and they recover in no time. If you give them too much, they die. Even if you then stop giving them water, often the degenerative process is in such an advanced state, they cannot be revived anymore. The same happens to your body. If you eat natural food enough water is extracted from the fruit and vegetables. If you start taking extra fluids, there is a surplus. Almost certainly it will lead to decomposition processes, comparable to plants having to cope with too much water. When it is very warm outside it is possible you may have to drink more, but that depends on the amounts of fruit and vegetables you have eaten. How much and when am I allowed to drink? Briefly, it comes down to this: drink as much fruit juice as possible in the mornings. Or eat a large amount of fruit. Afterwards you will not need to drink anymore! Even water can thoroughly mess up this supernatural food program! The explanation is simple. Say, you eat bread or potatoes with non-starchy vegetables and/or slightly-starchy vegetables. What happens then? Very simple: the water washes away the amylase, and the digestion of starch is brought to a standstill. It ferments, and it may cause diarrhea or flatulence. Once again, drinking with your meal is disastrous for your digestion! Drinking within four hours after a meal is not good either, because the starch will remain in the stomach for up to four hours. If you drink during this period, you are thoroughly upsetting your digestion. And if you think you are allowed to drink as much as you want after four hours I must disappoint you again. After four hours the water mixes with the carbohydrates which are further down the digestive tract now. Too much water and these carbohydrates (like plants) will ferment. Only this will happen at an even quicker rate due to your higher body temperature. Result: diarrhea or flatulence. DRINKING IS THE WORST ENEMY OF YOUR NEW LIFESTYLE AND MUST BE LIMITED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! ONLY WATER - IN LIMITED AMOUNTS! - IS PERMITTED.... When am I allowed to drink then? You must have understood by now that if you eat a lot of vegetables and fruit, drinking is liable to do more damage than good. It can cause unnecessary problems. To help you incorporate water, soup or juices in your diet, I have given you the following guidelines. Take them into account, and your digestion will run smoother and you will feel much better.
Guidelines for drinking: • Have your last drink at least twenty-five minutes before your meal. This also applies to soup. (this is the most important rule). • After drinking fruit juice (on an empty stomach!) you must wait at least thirty minutes before eating a sandwich. • Wait approximately forty-five minutes to one and a half hours after drinking carrot juice before eating. • After a starch meal you need to wait at least four hours before drinking water again. Don’t forget, starch remains in the stomach for up to four or five hours. Diluting with water severely interferes with digestion. Drinking fruit juice or vegetable juice during this period is disastrous for the digestion of starch! So don’t. • After a meal containing proteins, you have to wait at least four hours before drinking. • Remember: if you drink with your meal, the liquid flushes the digestive enzymes from your stomach! Digestion is brought to a standstill and you do not feel well. So avoid it!
DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS IN CASE OF NATURAL FOOD.
Even with correct food combinations it is possible to suffer slight discomfort. This is normal though. Brussels sprouts for example, are noted for causing flatulence. Beans have the same effect. Even with correct food combinations this may trouble you, but in a lesser degree. The cause lies in the difficult and complex structure of the vegetables themselves, which makes them difficult to dismantle and digest. Compare the demolition of an old farmhouse to that of a concrete bunker. With a crane it is easy to demolish the farmhouse, but for the concrete bunker you need more manpower. Without dynamite or pneumatic drills you are unlikely to succeed. The bunker is made of reinforced concrete, and the reinforcing steel gives the building its typical strong structure, which is why it can take up to several weeks before it is demolished. The parallel with food is easily drawn. Chicory (Belgian endive) and carrots for example are easy to digest. Sprouts and beans are not. They are very fibrous and have a thready pattern. Only after lengthy laborious digestion can these thready structures be dismantled, which is why they remain in your stomach and intestinal tract for a longer period of time. If you think about this you will come to a few important conclusions, the fact for example that sprouts and beans must be chewed very slowly. In doing so, the inner cellular structures are broken open and the digestive amylase enzyme is able to penetrate these fibers which consist of complex carbohydrates. Having said this, correct combinations are also imperative. After some hours your stomach will secrete hydrochloric acid which will attempt to dissolve the remaining particles. But, as mentioned before, the thready fibers put up a fierce resistance. Eventually they will give in to the attack of the acid, just as the bunker will crumble under the dynamite explosions. In this intensive digestive process gasses may be released. You know from your own experience, that when you work something with a strong acid, fumes and gasses are released. The same happens in your body. These processes can be very bothersome, which is why it may be a good idea to know which vegetables cause such discomforts. Vegetables that are difficult to digest • Beans • Beets • Broccoli • Brussels sprouts • Cabbage (all kinds) • Cauliflower • Corn-on-the-cob (more than two days old) • Leafy vegetables • Lettuce (all kinds) • Onions • Peas • Pulses • Turnips (all kinds) To all the abovementioned vegetables the same principle applies: the younger they are, the softer and the less complex the cellular structures and the easier to digest. A lot of people do not experience any problems when eating small onions, but do with big ones.
The same applies to beans. Pulses, green beans, etc. which are easy to digest when compared to cooked beans! Corn-on-the-cob that is older than two days is like starch. The structure is tougher which is why it is more difficult to digest! When you boil cabbage, there is a greater chance of it decaying in your body then when eaten raw. Therefore they are often better digestible when raw. What about irritant vegetables? The following vegetables have been divided into the "irritant" category because of the amount of mustard oil they contain. Irritant vegetables Black Radish Chives Garlic Leeks Mature Mustard Greens Onions Parsley Radishes Shallots Watercress
Because of the extremely irritant nature of these vegetables I urge you to avoid this category of vegetables as much as possible! Regular eating, severely upsets your digestion! What about vegetables high in oxalic acid? These may be eaten but must be combined correctly. Do not combine with bread, potatoes, rice or other starch-containing substances! Pulpy defecation or diarrhea can be the result. The more of these vegetables you eat the more severe the reactions (particularly people allergic to them)! Vegetables high in oxalic acid Beets (red) Leafs of the beetroot Purslane Rhubarb Spinach Spinach beet Swiss Chard
Red beet with sandwiches or potatoes is one of the worst possible combinations! Children especially can suffer allergic reactions like skin rashes or asthma! Spinach and potatoes is also an extremely unhealthy combination! What about bitter vegetables? Old or large vegetables always taste bitter because they contain concentrated acids and irritant substances. Avoid them as much as possible. Make sure you do not combine them with bread, potatoes or rice because such combinations can make you feel weak, apathetic or very ill! Bitter vegetables Broccoli (bitter) Cabbage (bitter) Chicory (Belgian Endive) (bitter) Endive (bitter) Escarole (bitter) Fennel (old) Olives (fresh) Turnip-rooted Celery
What about acid vegetables or fruit vegetables? Just like the former category they contain too many acid substances which is why every combination with starch is out of the question. If you do not believe me, try eating the following combination for three consecutive days. You will probably suffer chronic diarrhea and be severely weakened. Extremely incorrect combinations Breakfast : whole-wheat bread with cucumber + 3 tomatoes Lunch : whole-wheat bread with courgettes, garden sorrel, pickles, tomato gherkins and peppers. Dinner : potatoes + 300 gm sauerkraut, 3 tomatoes and chili peppers Acid vegetables and fruit vegetables
Aubergines Black Radish Chili peppers Courgettes
Cucumber Garden sorrel Gherkins Peppers
Pickles Sauerkraut Tomatoes
Can fruit also cause digestive problems? Yes, certainly when not combined correctly. Eaten separately fruit may also cause problems. More so if eaten in large amounts. I will explain why: when fruit digests in your warm body, part of it may ferment. It is the same process that takes place in the preparation of wine and champagne. An odorless gas is released: carbonic acid. When you open a bottle of champagne, you can see this gas bubble up. If you eat a lot of fruit (on an empty stomach) as befits a real fruitarian it is normal to suffer from flatulence, especially when you eat sweet or dried fruit. Quite often acid fruit is less bothersome because acids have a suppressing effect on the fermentation process. Why does acid fruit trouble me so much? This can also be explained. Your stomach and intestines may have been affected due to your unhealthy eating habits. Due to a prolonged, abnormally high secretion of stomach acid your stomach can become so "raw" it reacts strongly to acid fruit. Logical of course. If you have a cut on your hand and you drip lemon juice onto it, it also stings. In an "acidic" stomach, often scarred with little wounds or ulcers, the same applies. And that gives you the stinging pain! You think it is caused by the acid fruit and you decide to ban it from your diet. "Citrus fruit just does not agree with me", you think! You are wrong. The only way you can cure the little wounds and ulcers in your stomach is with vast quantities of vitamin C. These are found in acid fruits! "What should I do then?" you ask yourself. To avoid this problem, I suggest you start of with ripe papayas and mangos. These contain high concentrations of healing vitamins. After about two weeks you can gradually try eating acid fruit again. If you still have problems eating oranges, try grapefruits. They will not cause as many problems (or flatulence). What is the most important cause of flatulence? Undoubtedly the quantity of fibers. Eliminate this problem, by drinking a lot of juice, and you can improve your digestion and reduce discomfort. The orange membranes that are difficult to digest may (among other things) cause flatulence! It is best to liquidize and sieve oranges first! The same applies to grapefruit. Grated and peeled apples digest easier than un-peeled apples. Of course some fruit, like bananas and dried fruit, cannot be liquidized. Pears are also difficult to squeeze. It is best to eat these fruits as they are. Tips for consuming juice and fibers: • In case of diets to lose weight, it is recommended NOT to separate the fibers from the juice. It is best to blend these fruits in a blender (or a mixer) and to drink them as slowly as possible. • With normal diets it is recommended to avoid fibers as much as possible. In case of citrus fruit especially it could avoid a lot of discomfort. Sieved fruit causes less flatulence! That way you can drink much more juice, which is healthier than fat or starch. • Also re-read the instructions in my book, "Slim and Healthy". You will find useful tips like for example: it is best to take off the skin of grapes, because they are difficult to digest. Why do I feel ill when I convert to a fruit-vegetable diet? Many people expect that as soon as they convert to a radically different diet they will immediately feel better. That is possible but most of us will have to contend with a few "transitional problems". The symptoms are: • Headache. The purifying power of the diet drives out a lot of toxins from the cells into your bloodstream. Giving up coffee and sugar can cause splitting headaches in the beginning. • Hunger. Incorrect food combinations lay heavily on the stomach and digest slowly. Correct food combinations digest very easily, which may give you a hungry feeling soon after eating. It takes some time to get used to. • Flatulence. A fruit-vegetable diet is rich in fibers which may cause flatulence. • Cramps. If your intestines are not functioning properly and you are plagued with constipation, you will probably be troubled by this. Eating less fibrous food is the message. • Allergies. Temporarily, these may grow worse. Allergy-sensitive people must make absolutely sure they avoid the following food products as much as possible: corn, wheat, rye, barley, tomatoes and citrus fruit. Remove the fibers (for example sieved orange juice) and the allergic reactions will not be as severe. The following symptoms may also appear: temporary tiredness, diarrhea, excessive urination and weight loss. Don’t worry. If you keep it up you will be rewarded: more energy after meals, regular defecation, increased vitality, no more water accumulation or cellulite or acne, a positive calcium balance thanks to the lower protein diet, lower blood pressure thanks to the lower salt proportion, etc. So you see it is worth starting and sticking to! Hurry up to your fruit scales! Special guidelines for stomach and intestinal problems
Stomach and intestines cause more problems than all other organs put together. Stomach ulcers, infected intestines, constipation, colitis and Crohn 's disease to name only a few. Dangerous remedies The number of wrong treatments for stomach and intestinal illnesses is astounding. Operations and the use of corticoids are everyday practice. Colitis can make your very ill, but the chemical junk they use to combat it can kill you. Of course there are better treatments. A safe dietary program and correct food combinations can see to a radical improvement, without side effects and with lasting life-saving results! Diet for stomach and intestinal patients For serious infections, ulcers or an irritated stomach and intestines the same principle always applies: avoid all chemical junk! They will only make your condition worse! The following food products AGGRAVATE stomach and intestinal conditions and can precipitate dangerous attacks. The most risky products have been mentioned first: • Wheat and all wheat containing products (for example both whole wheat-bread and white bread) • Milk, Cheese and Yogurt • Cabbage (bitter) • Broccoli (bitter) • Cauliflower (bitter) • Sprouts • Swede turnips, Kohlrabi, Turnips • Corn and corn containing products • Yeast • Citrus fruit. Mostly the fibers cause the problems, sieved juice is tolerated normally. • Coffee In serious cases it is IMPERATIVE to avoid the abovementioned products. In less serious cases they have to be avoided as much as possible. If you have hemorrhoids for instance, it is extremely unhealthy to eat whole-wheat bread! This would only further irritate your already irritated intestines. In this case it is better to eat Basmathi rice. Do not eat oranges either when you are suffering from hemorrhoids or any other intestinal disorders. Sieved orange juice is allowed (drunk slowly!) A HEALTHY REHABILITATION PROGRAM For ALL INTESTINAL DISORDERS, serious or not, the same rehabilitation program applies: combine your food correctly. Fresh fruit juice will speed up your recovery Healing food products for stomach and intestines: • Barley (not for everyone, must be determined individually) • Fresh fruit juice (drunk slowly, without fibers and no acid fruit to begin with). • Mango • Papaya • Potatoes • Rice • Rye (not for everyone, must be determined individually). COURSE OF THE PROGRAM FASTING ON FRESH FRUIT JUICE • For example: juice of sweet grapes, sweet apples. After one week or more (depending on your condition) of having practiced the noble art of juice fasting, you must be careful not to start eating fibrous food immediately. (for example; apples, celery, lettuce, grains). Take care not to eat any raw vegetables! Steam or boil them first! • Afterwards it is best to continue with vegetable soup, mashed steamed banana, mashed steamed potatoes, grated apples, soft pears, papayas, mangos and other soft fruit. After a week you may add rice to your diet. No wheat or derived products! • If the symptoms occur again, suppress them with fasting or juice fasting!
NUTS AND SEEDS
Many people have difficulties eating nuts and seeds. In many cases this is due to incorrect combinations. Nuts eaten on an empty stomach, or with acid fruit, acid vegetables or non-starchy vegetables, are digested and remain in the stomach for approximately four hours. If you eat nuts with sandwiches or after a meal containing potatoes, this combination remains in your stomach for approximately twelve hours and is not digested well. This is not due to the nuts or your weak stomach but the incorrect food combination. Eating nuts when your stomach is not empty, after or in between meals, is asking for trouble. GETTING USED TO eating nuts is also important. If up to now you have never eaten nuts regularly, you do not possess the correct digestive enzymes. ONLY GRADUAL HABITUATION CAN ACTIVATE THE SPECIFIC DIGESTIVE ENZYMES. For this specific reason I will give you the most important rules to eat nuts. 1) If you are used to digesting animal fats (milk, eggs, meat, fish, etc.) your enzyme production has had some practice. The enzymes needed for the digestion of nuts only occur sporadically though. 2) Only by gradually increasing the amount of nuts, your body is taught to produce more enzymes. You could for example start with 3 nuts (not more!) with a meal. If you eat them regularly, you can increase this quantity slightly after two weeks. 3) Nuts contain large amounts of proteins and fats. Never eat more than 20 g/3/4 oz a day! 4) If you eat nuts at least every two to three days, the maximal digestive capacity is attained after approximately 8 weeks. 5) Nuts are digested best when chewed very well. 6) The digestion of nuts is improved, when ground very finely! This can be done in a coffee mill. The difference between finely ground and ungrounded nuts can be spectacular! (Important tip!) Types of nuts:
Almonds Beech-nuts Black walnuts Brazil nut Butternut Candle nuts Cashew nut White walnuts
English walnuts Hickory nuts Paradise nut Pecan nut Pine nuts Pistachio nuts
Remarks 1) Remove the skin from the almonds; it contains too many bitter substances. Be sure to do this when preparing almond milk for children! 2) Never eat peanuts or derived products. Peanuts, earthnuts, monkey nuts or whatever their name may be, are not classified as nuts. Botanically they are classified as pulses, or in other words, extremely difficult to digest. Furthermore, they produce large amounts of acids in your body! Combination possibilities There are 4 ways to combine nuts: 1) with acid fruit ( citrus fruit especially) 2) with non-starchy vegetables (for example chicory (Belgian endive)) + slightly-starchy vegetables 3) with acid vegetables, fruit vegetables and irritant vegetables (tomatoes, cucumber, etceteras.) 4) non-starchy vegetables + slightly-starchy vegetables (don't exaggerate!) + acid fruit, fruit vegetables and irritant vegetables All other combinations lead to digestive problems and discomfort. Eating nuts after or in between meals is asking for (digestive) problems! Exceptions: The following products are classified as starchy products because of their high starch level, NOT AS NUTS STARCHY PRODUCTS: Acorns Chestnuts Coconuts Earth almonds Water chestnuts
They may be combined with all other starchy products, slightly-starchy vegetables, non-starchy vegetables and fat. Never combine them with fruit! Avoid coconut with fruit (bad starch-sugar combination!)
SEEDS & PITS Attention! SEEDS & PITS ARE NOT CLASSIFIED AS NUTS! They react as concentrated PROTEINS! PROTEINS Alfalfa (Lucerne) Caraway seeds Cumin Fennel seed Fenugreek Linseed Mustard seed Poppy seed Pumpkin pits Safflower pips Sesame seed Sun flower seed Wheat germs
Like nuts, it is possible to combine different sorts of seeds, or eat them with non-starchy vegetables and/or slightly-starchy vegetables. These are the only possible combinations! Incorrect combinations with seeds Seeds are often used as laxatives or strengtheners. But remember: • seeds are concentrated proteins. They cannot be combined with starch. Bread covered in sesame seeds in order to improve defecation or because of the high calcium level is indigestible! I have said it time and time again: bad digestion causes many vitamins and minerals to be lost. The result is always the same: your body is weakened instead of strengthened. • wheat germs contain nearly 30% protein. Combined with starch this severely interferes with your digestion. Wheat germs eaten with fruit is difficult to digest! Remember: incorrect combinations interfere with the absorption of important substances. Combining wheat germs with fruit or grain products does not improve your health. Quite the contrary in fact! If you are allergic to this combination, your stomach and intestinal tract must work all the harder, undermining your health at the same time. • sprouted seeds contain large amounts of proteins! This also applies to grain sprouts and pulses. For example sprouted lentils, wheat, sun flower seeds, rye, etceteras. Good combinations with seeds, pits and sprouts Considering that seeds are concentrated proteins, they should only be combined with non-starchy vegetables. Combinations with slightly-starchy vegetables are also possible. NEVER use in salads containing starch! Tip: Always grind seeds in a mill to improve digestion! The more finely ground, the better digestion. Seeds => non-starchy vegetables + slightly-starchy vegetables . Examples: A) Wheat germs (finely ground) => green beans + asparagus + carrots B) Sun flower seeds (finely ground) => cauliflower + small pumpkin C) Sesame seeds, linseed (finely ground) => celery, bamboo shoots, Chinese cabbage, cabbage, turnip tops D) Sprouted lentils, rye, soybeans => asparagus, carrots, celery
CONSEQUENCES OF INCORRECT COMBINATIONS
Many people panic at the thought of not being allowed to eat strawberries with sandwiches, or tomatoes with potatoes. Many people with a strong constitution and an equally strong stomach do not seem to be bothered at all by incorrect combinations. To them all this combining is rubbish. Others suffer asthma or migraines, but attribute this to different things. In short, correct food combinations will cause endless discussions for a long time to come. How could it be any different? It is complicated and not
always clear. The consequences of incorrect food combinations mostly become obvious when we eat raw or natural food. The combination of tomatoes or strawberries with white bread is easier digested than with whole-wheat bread, because whole-wheat bread contains a great deal of fibers. Incorrect combinations cause these fibers to decay. White bread hardly contains any fibers which is why many people choose white bread. The lack of fibers makes white bread easier to digest. The lack of vitamins makes you prone to throat infections and bronchitis. It is a fact that laboratory animals living on white bread, on average only live half as long as animals living on whole-wheat bread. As you can see, eating white bread prevents discomfort, but at the same time you are more prone to infections and life-expectancy is shortened. Whole-wheat bread is more difficult to digest, but protects you against infections. A difficult dilemma. That is why I recommend light whole-wheat bread, which excludes the disadvantages both of white bread and of whole-wheat bread. Fat plays an important part in limiting the consequences of incorrect food combinations. Fruit, vegetables, whole-wheat bread and starch may ferment in your body. Meat and fish may even decay. Fat does not ferment or decay and strongly reduces the amount of food you can eat. A buttered sandwich will fill your stomach just as well as two sandwiches without butter. Two sandwiches can cause a great deal more discomfort than just the one. In other words, incorrect food combinations do not trouble you when you eat a lot of fat. Most people do this, so that almost half of their energy intake comes from fat. The consequence is that they are troubled by constipation, heart disease or obesity. This should make you stop and think! Incorrect combinations always have a negative influence on your health which is why you will have to make a few drastic changes to your lifestyle and convert to fruit. Drinking a lot of fruit juice or eating fruit is not always easy. But in the future it will preserve you from worse diseases such as cancer or a heart attacks. Don’t be fooled by "food specialists" who think combining is a lot of talk. People who do not believe it should undergo the following test: "So you don't believe in incorrect food combinations?" "Absolutely not. Complete load of rubbish!" "You won't mind doing a test then?" "No problem!" "Eat whole-wheat bread in the morning and afterwards drink 750 ml/1 1/4 pints orange juice. For lunch, eat 500 gm tomatoes with whole-wheat bread and for dinner, spinach with potatoes. Deal?" "Then what?" "I bet you will get diarrhea!" Combined correctly, the same quantity of food will not cause diarrhea. The correct combination is the following: in the morning drink 750 ml/1 1/4 pints/3 cups orange juice for lunch eat tomatoes and spinach for dinner whole-wheat bread with potatoes and carrots. Try it if you do not believe me! I am sure you will be convinced about the importance of correct food combinations! People who suffer from diarrhea, can learn from this. There is a direct link between this intestinal complaint and incorrect food combinations. What you should do when you have diarrhea you will read next. DIARRHEA AND FOOD COMBINATIONS Diarrhea weakens you because your intestines cannot extract the necessary vitamins and minerals from your food. Many food substances are excreted and your condition rapidly deteriorates. No doubt, diarrhea is caused by incorrect food combinations: Examples: • When eating spaghetti or other soaked starch (for example bread soaked in soup ) little saliva is produced. To make matters worse, the amylase enzyme is not present in your saliva which is necessary to digest starch. Result: starch cannot be broken down into smaller components. This starch ferments and forms components which cannot be absorbed by your body. Your intestinal tract gets rid of them as soon as possible! • Many people also know that when they combine tomatoes, spinach, oranges (or other acid fruit) or vegetables with starch they will have diarrhea. This is logical. When you chew starch, it mixes with the alkaline amylase enzyme. If you eat acid substances with a starch meal, the amylase enzyme is destroyed immediately. Depending on the amount of tomatoes or spinach you eat, more or less amylase is destroyed. The digestion of starch comes to a partial or complete standstill. Your digestive tract has only one solution: get rid of it as quickly as possible. • Yogurt, milk, ice cream and other dairy products may all cause diarrhea. After the age of three or four you lose the ability of digesting dairy products. They digest by decaying. Furthermore, yogurt contains sour milk, and cottage cheese contains acids. These acids destroy the amylase enzyme! The yogurt, the cottage cheese and the starch cannot be digested! • Eating fruit with starch is not good either. Fruit digests extremely quickly. If you eat fruit with starch or proteins, digestion is obstructed. The fruit decays and the fermentation processes will start. At a body temperature of 37°C, alcohol, acetic acid and other waste products are produced. And of course your body will want to get rid of these as soon as possible. Dear oh dear oh dear! Other incorrect combinations are mentioned in this book, which (may) also cause diarrhea. These are the most common though.
The only quick way of getting rid of diarrhea is by not eating. This means skipping at least one meal. You have to understand that the contents of your intestines is a fermenting mass. If you carry on eating this process is stimulated. You will visibly weaken, because diarrhea causes many vitamins and minerals to be excreted, vitamins and minerals which are essential for your muscles. Consequently you feel very weak. Skip one meal? In cases of bad diarrhea it may be necessary to skip two meals. Only then can you be certain the fermentation processes have abated sufficiently, so they will not affect the new food. Only drink moderate amounts of rose hip tea and water. If you drink too much the fermentation processes will continue. But I need fluids, don't I? Of course you need fluids, because you have lost large amounts. But if you carry on adding fluids you have to skip three meals before being allowed to eat again! What is the quickest way of getting rid of diarrhea? Stop eating immediately. Go for a long, calm walk. Movement stimulates the intestines. Many people suffer from constipation due to incorrect food combinations, not from diarrhea. CONSTIPATION, AUTO-INTOXICATION AND AN UNHEALTHY DIET. Are you troubled by persistent constipation? A tight feeling in your intestines? In that case you are poisoning your body. You will be prematurely ill, old and ugly! The main cause is a shortage of fruit and vegetables. White bread, meat and cheese can also cause persistent constipation. Normally it takes a day for food to digest. By eating white bread or meat this may be prolonged to over a week! Two days is already too long though, because (decomposition) poison is released into the intestines. Protein-rich food especially (meat, fish and eggs) is dismantled into a series of very dangerous substances. Cadaverine for example is one of them. This poison is so powerful, that a small amount from your intestinal tract is sufficient to kill a small animal. Are you surprised you get headaches from the poisons which are absorbed into your bloodstream through your intestines? That your heart convulses under the stream of toxic substances? That you get acne or psoriasis because of the waste toxins your body is trying to find a way out for? Constipation translates into a slow suicide. It weakens your resistance, you get tired more quickly, feel weak and apathetic, and you start forgetting things. You will also become infertile sooner and because of that you will age more quickly. It also causes depression and despondency. If you revert to a natural diet, as suggested by this book, you will soon notice you will be able to go to the toilet twice a day. You body will purify itself in a few weeks and your thoughts will become clear. You will be more responsive to love, and that is a property which can only make your life more pleasant. Constipation, incorrect combinations and unhealthy food literally ruin your life. MIGRAINES AND INCORRECT COMBINATIONS Headaches and migraines are common complaints. They vary from an unpleasant feeling to unbearable pain. The pain lasts a few minutes or hours, in the worst case days, or even weeks. Some people suffer from it their entire life. The attacks are often coupled with nausea, vomiting and dizziness. Over-sensitivity to light or noise are also common. You feel terrible, a little dizzy. The radio is too loud, people are talking too loudly, and looking into the light gives you headaches. And it keeps getting worse. A piercing pain seems to be drilling deeper and deeper into your brain. The muscles in your face convulse and you get a nervous twitch. The fearsome attack has started. You are powerless to do anything about it. After a hopeless battle, you sink down into a chair or bed, utterly exhausted. There you continue your lonely battle, until you have recovered. And then you want to eat. But now it is my turn: Stop! Don’t! Skip one meal at least! Why? When you have finished reading this book, you should know that over-exhaustion, stress, excitement, pain and psychological tension (headaches, quarreling, etc.) have an effect on your digestion. Eating when your stomach and intestinal tract is blocked, may precipitate a new attack! Not eating prevents this! What then? After at least eight hours you may drink fresh fruit juice or eat fresh fruit. These digest easily and prevent any further attacks. Not eating and only drinking water is another possibility. That way you can fend off this migraine attack successfully. If you want to prevent any further attacks you must combine your food correctly. Incorrect combinations produce ill thoughts due to the toxic decomposition processes. Cheese molds especially produce terrifying amounts of decomposition products. A migraine attack is scary. You are completely consumed by somber and ill thoughts. And where do you think these came from? Exactly, yes. From fermenting and decomposing food. Are you still surprised you are getting those terrible headaches? Not for much longer I hope! Migraines are the result of processes taking place in your intestines. Milk, cheese and yogurt are the worst instigators. Only a very limited amount or complete abstention can prevent them from happening. Coffee, tea and alcohol may not be forgotten either though. Incorrect food combinations are decisive in migraine attacks. Don't forget your resistance is low. The smallest effort may precipitate another attack. You are exhausted. Fresh fruit juice, correct food combinations and a peaceful attitude toward life can bring about a spectacular change within a few weeks. Is it not worth trying? Besides migraines, incorrect combinations also cause
rheumatism and gout. RHEUMATISM, GOUT AND DIABETES You may find it strange to think these diseases are caused by incorrect food combinations. But it is true. In the case of diabetes it is easy to prove. Combining bread and fruit, potatoes and meat, or chicken and rice, always causes digestive problems. Bread and fruit or jam cannot be digested because the amylase enzyme, essential in digesting bread is not being produced. The sweet taste "is telling" your body you are eating fruit. You are not secreting any amylase though, because the digestion of fruit does not require enzymes. The result is that the fruit and the bread are not digested well enough. Your blood sugar level shoots up, because of the "fighting reaction" of your body (see "Slim and Healthy), and you need larger amounts of insulin. Besides that you lose a great deal of undigested carbohydrates and sugars through defecating and urinating. Does this principle also apply to meals consisting of potatoes and meat? Of course. Only the cause is different The amylase enzyme is destroyed by the stomach acid, needed to digest proteins. The proteins decay and the potatoes ferment. Your need for insulin shoots up and you lose undigested starch and unabsorbed sugars through defecating and urinating. The worse the food combination, the more undigested carbohydrates are secreted. Eating tomatoes with potatoes and meat is not good for diabetics. The quantity of undigested food increases considerably, as does your need for insulin. Correct food combinations not only decrease the need for insulin, but are also capable of curing diabetes, providing that your body has not suffered too seriously. You will notice yourself that when you eat correct food combinations, your need for insulin will drop drastically (or when you did not need much from the start, this need will disappear completely!). As doctors are seemingly incapable of comprehending this, you will have to determine yourself whether or not you need insulin (by checking your urine). And I say it again, after reverting to correct food combinations the need for insulin will drop. If you carry on using insulin this can be dangerous because your blood sugar level may drop too much. What is the cause of rheumatism? Just like diabetes, rheumatism finds its origin in incorrect food combinations. Decaying proteins form acids and other waste products, which accumulate in your body. Depending on how sensitive you are to them you will get painful fingers, feet or bones. Your fingers may even be deformed into "claws"! You can cure rheumatism by drinking large amounts of orange and grapefruit juice on an empty stomach. This juice contains large amounts of minerals, which are essential for making your blood alkaline again. Drinking carrot juice is also very important. Besides that -MODERATE- sunbathing may not be forgotten, because it strengthens your immune system. If you use all these weapons provided by nature, you have a 90% chance of complete recovery or an extreme improvement of your condition. ALLERGIES ARE CAUSED BY INCORRECT FOOD COMBINATIONS "Chemical children", the newspapers are full of it. Children who become hyperactive or aggressive after eating food they are allergic to. Others might get cramp, eczema, psoriasis or asthma. In short, allergic reactions to food frequently occur. They are not only incredibly bothersome and painful, but also extremely tiring. Allergies are caused by our modern food. Everything you eat is teeming with artificial fertilizers, growth hormones, antibiotics, etc. In other words, slowly but surely your body is being poisoned. It is not surprising that EIGHTY percent of all children suffer allergic reactions. A terrifying development which will increase in years to come. What I am telling you now is not strictly true though, because pollen, dyes and emulsifiers are in fact a secondary cause of allergies. Incorrect food combinations are the most important cause of allergies. If you eat as everybody else does, a series of toxic protein waste products is released into your body. It has been proven that eating proteins and starch at the same time is completely incompatible with human digestive capabilities. Meals consisting of potatoes and meat, pizza, cheese sandwiches or hamburgers, produce large amounts of undigested proteins. These undigested proteins are converted into histamines (which people suffering from allergies are very familiar with). A surplus of histamines is directly responsible for hay fever, asthma, severe migraine, eczema, psoriasis and aggressive and uncontrollable behavior in children. Correct food combinations can cure allergies. For years now natural hygienists have known that people suffering allergic reactions can recover COMPLETELY from their complaints within a few weeks. Even better: people with hay fever can even put their nose into the substance, which was creating havoc with their lives, without even coughing or sneezing! All this simply by combining food correctly! Why? Incorrect food combinations produce toxic end products that cause the production of histamines to rocket. The result is that you need more histamines (a so-called medicine) to combat the symptoms of your allergy. Because of the histamines the chance of an another attack is increased again, especially when you get excited or nervous. For a number of people a badly combined meal may even prove to be fatal. I personally have seen a young asthma sufferer in warm surroundings go into shock and die within ten minutes. People who dare to question the fact that correct food combinations could have prevented this and still remain uninterested, have been warned. What are the worst food combinations for allergy sufferers? Combining proteins and starch (hamburgers, cheese sandwiches, meat, fish or chicken and potatoes), drinking milk or chocolate milk with a meal. Eating acid fruit with starch can cause serious problems for asthma sufferers. Sugar or sweets are the worst.
Chocolate or candy are disastrous for children who are especially allergic! Cola and coffee may not be underestimated either. Not to say anything about milk and dairy products. Why does my doctor forbid fruit? Because he does not know the slightest thing about correct food combinations! Acid fruit does not combine well with starch. So if for instance you have an orange with your breakfast or for dessert, the digestion of starch is brought to a complete standstill. Result: your body produces a series of toxic waste products and you suffer an allergic reaction! Sour apples can also cause unpleasant physical side effects! Trying to remedy this by not eating any fruit is absolutely ludicrous! If you eat correct food combinations you can drink ten squeezed oranges without any problem and WITHOUT THE SLIGHTEST ALLERGIC REACTION, providing that you do this in the morning on an empty stomach. The same rule applies to other illnesses, such as intestinal disorders or Crohn's disease, when fruit is normally forbidden: FRUIT ON AN EMPTY STOMACH IS NOT BAD FOR YOU! It is advisable though to accustom your body GRADUALLY TO ACID FRUIT, because it may precipitate rather strong reactions in the beginning. When you suffer from a stomach or intestinal disorder you have to start carefully with sub-acid fruit, with the least possible amount of fibers. It is ,in fact, better to sieve it first! Besides allergic reactions, incorrect combinations also have an effect on your nerves. STRESS, MENTAL DISEASES AND FOOD COMBINATIONS When you combine food incorrectly, it remains in your stomach far too long. Your body has to make a tremendous effort to prepare this food for digestion. The fermentation and decomposition processes involved in this demand an awful lot from a whole series of vitamins, which are of crucial importance to your nervous system. Incorrect food combinations mean some of these are lost. When your nerves receive less "strengthening food", they slowly die off. It manifests itself in the following symptoms: trembling, nervous behavior, insomnia, etc. It depends on what you are sensitive to. Some people lose their appetite. But most people get an uncontrolled urge to eat and eat: their body is trying to supplement the shortage of vitamins. Some people become dictatorial, while others become slavish followers. Most frightening though is that the smallest setback, may bring about a depression. Look around you and look at yourself. When something goes wrong, you do not feel like going to work. The depression deregulates your digestion even more and an incredible amount of vitamins is used up. Then things really start getting out of hand. The slightest setback upsets your stomach, you get depressed very easily and you start losing hope. Your digestion is demanding an incredible amount of energy, which makes you feel even worse. The smallest everyday things are becoming too much for you and because incorrect combinations destroy your neurons, eventually you turn into an incredibly nervous, overstressed, chain-smoking, alcoholic mess. You have already given up all hope of breaking through this extremely frustrating circle. That is why I ask you now: can you identify yourself in this? Do you get hopelessly nervous? Are you pessimistic? Yes? Please do not lose heart! Start working on a new life. It is understandable for you to have your doubts. Because of your weak nerves you start questioning everything. If you want to revitalize your life, take the advice in this book to heart. Without tabacco, coffee, tea or chocolate, but most importantly without tranquilizers and many other extravagances you will feel like a new person. How can I personally assist in this self-healing process? What is the ideal nutrition that will protect you against your own sour thoughts and your immeasurable doubts? Where can you find the necessary vitamins and minerals, that rid you of the acids in your body and restore the peaceful alkaline condition of your plasma? The answer is short and simple: only in genuine natural food! Fresh fruit and fresh vegetables (in correct food combinations). Fruit on a full stomach ferments, which obviously will not do your digestion or nerves any good. Only correct food combinations will prevent food decaying. With your digestion running the way it should your blood is able to extract the necessary elements from your food with which it is able to feed and renew cells. It also assures an alkaline blood plasma. All pessimistic thoughts are driven away. The decline of your body is brought to a standstill, your nerves calm down and you are more resistant to stress. You relax more easily and you start having fun in your daily work. Which is logical of course, because instead of acid residues, decomposition bacteria and waste products, you are now overflowing with alkaline, enzyme-rich and vitamin-rich food. Like a steamroller this will rid you of all nasty thoughts. You actually feel alive again. Your outlook on life is much brighter and you are not as agitated. The knowledge that everything is getting better and will continue to do so, will stimulate you. You know now you will not become seriously ill anymore. Even everyday colds have to yield to your regained health. You feel self-assured again and more stabile then you ever dreamed possible... WHY FRESH JUICE? Fresh fruit or vegetable juice translates into concentrated energy. This makes it superior to any other kind of food, I cannot stress this enough: you can drink much more juice than you can eat whole fruit or vegetables. The energy value of a glass of carrot juice for instance equals 500 gm of carrots After 45 minutes this juice has already been absorbed by your body and the vitamins and minerals are coursing through your veins. Afterwards you can eat something else, like chicory (Belgian endive) and podded peas with toast. If, on the other hand you eat 500 gm of raw carrots, you already feel reasonably satisfied (because it takes up a lot of space in your stomach). And the coarse cellular tissue means the vitamins and minerals are not absorbed well. This means less absorption of vital substances. The same principle applies to fruit. After eating three apples you can already feel satiated. If on the other hand you drink fresh apple juice, this is digested quickly and it is possible to have an extra-helping. You feel revitalized and you are pumped up with energy. You also avoid stomach and intestinal disorders by drinking juice. Many people's stomach and intestines have been weakened to such an extent they are unable or only partially able to digest fruit and vegetables. Drinking
juices is the ideal solution for these people. For all of these reasons (and there are many more) drinking juices has to become a habit. And for women who are hoping to get pregnant in the near future or already are, juices are an absolute "must". There is another important argument for drinking fresh fruit juice instead of eating the whole fruit. I have already referred to the fact that most fruit when picked is still unripe. It contains much more acid than ripe fruit does. Citric acid and malic acid are two of the most well known acids. They are both strong acids, and can damage your dental enamel. To prevent this there is only one remedy: always liquidize acid fruit. Acid fruit (such as lemons, grapefruit, oranges, kiwi fruit, pineapples, etc.) is best squeezed. Sweet and sub-acid fruit can be eaten without causing too many problems for your teeth. DON'T FORGET ACID FRUIT WEAKENS YOUR DENTAL ENAMEL What else is so special about juice? The way it is digested. Fruit acids are broken down into water, carbonic acid and highly active metal ions. You are brimming with minerals and energy and you feel incredibly fit. REMARK: FRUIT AND VEGETABLE JUICES ALWAYS HAVE TO BE DRUNK SLOWLY TO PREVENT FERMENTATION AND FLATULENCE!
VITAMIN C If you eat a lot of fruit and vegetables, you take in approximately half a gram of vitamin C. This is ten times more than the average person extracts from his or her food and is a prerequisite for good health. Your body has an enormous need for vitamin C, simply to let all processes run smoothly. It arms your cells against oxidation and aging and improves the absorption of iron. It repairs damaged cells and removes old cells from your body. If you have a shortage of vitamin C -as 99% of the population does- a surplus of old cells can cause painful rheumatism. It may even lead to cancer due to uncontrolled cellular mitosis. Is that why I have to drink so much fruit juice when an infectious disease breaks out? Precisely. You can calculate it yourself. If for instance the last thirty years you have not eaten enough fruit and vegetables, you have starved your body from very large amounts of vitamin C. Half a gram a day multiplied by 365 comes down to an annual shortage of 182.1/2 gm Over thirty years this amounts to 5475 gm It is not surprising then that infectious diseases are so rampant. This also applies to AIDS. I had never looked at it that way! I’m sure you hadn’t! These figures make you face the facts. It also explains why you have to make such a big and prolonged effort to recover. Such an acute shortage of vitamin C cannot be undone in a short period of time. The healing process often takes months. Be it cancer or rheumatism, fruit juices (rich in vitamin C) are your only chance of recovery. But why does it take so long? I know, you want to see instant results. That is impossible. Look at it this way: imagine yourself the lucky owner of a unique car, that was damaged in a crash. It is impossible to replace: just like you. You must have it repaired, just like you have to make your body healthy again. There is simply no other alternative! And how do you do this? Very simple. First you have your car towed away. In your case it means you throw all other food overboard and start on a fruit juice diet. Then you start overhauling every single component of your car. It looks hopeless. The garage owner tells you it is better to throw it on the scrap-heap. But others will say: "Come on. This car is unique. You have to restore it!" This applies to your body as well. Your stomach, intestines and digestive tract will play up too during the treatment. You feel even worse then before you started the treatment. You are tempted to give up. Then you pluck up enough courage again, maybe this book can help you or you are encouraged by your friends Don’t forget you are unique. The junk yard is nothing for you. It will strengthen your resolve. Notwithstanding your seemingly helpless situation, you fight for what you are worth. The juice diet will first cause you to lose a great deal of weight. There seems to come no end to it, until, weeks and weeks later you can commence the rebuilding. Just like your car, which is being repaired bit by bit, your organs will start functioning better again. Infections will disappear slowly but surely. Your skin regains its healthy gleam. Ulcers disappear. Cancerous growths shrink. Cholesterol is flushed from your veins. With serious infectious diseases (such as AIDS) this process may go on for weeks and weeks. In case of cancer and rheumatism even longer. The repairs to your car will not take for ever, and when it is finished it will look as good as new again. And that will be the best day of your new life! In my book "Peak Performance Food" you will find lists of fruit and vegetables that contain large amounts of vitamin C. These are sure to help you in your fight to regain your health! So pluck up enough courage and get started! THE DANGERS OF HERBS -A serious warning against the use of herbs.
Herbs, dangerous? I can already see the surprised look in your eyes. That cannot be true! I use them all the time to "cure" myself! Considering the success of many reference books adorned with the predicate "heal yourself in a natural way with herbs", this is not very surprising. But without realizing, you could be causing irreparable damage to your body! The side effects and reactions all depend on the concentrations. You won’t believe it, but some homeopathic dilution’s upset your body-functions after prolonged use, just like antibiotics do! For this reason I have put this serious warning in my book, no matter the controversies. Although complete books have already been written about this subject, I will limit myself to the most important arguments. -Health and illness. You can only remain healthy when you live according to the rules that have been adapted to your biological needs. That is why you have to eat healthy food, sleep sufficiently, socialize, etc. If you do not comply with these important rules, you are sure to become ill! -Herbs are like "drugs". When you are ill, you want to get well as soon as possible. Antibiotics are dangerous and have many side effects which is why only too often you revert to herbs. They are not a good alternative though! Marihuana, cocaine, etc. are manufactured from plants! So-called "medicinal plants" also contain strong stimulating substances. Deadly nightshade (atropa belladonna) for instance, is the plant from which atropine is extracted. One berry already contains a fatal amount of poison. Diluted it temporarily stimulates certain body functions and causes an apparent healing effect. Prolonged use may prove fatal! TOXIC COMPONENTS IN HERBS AND HERBAL MIXTURES The active components of herbs are chemicals that have no nutritional value whatsoever (like cocaine for instance). Your body has to work hard to get rid of them, but in the meantime they have already performed their poisonous work. They drive the water out of your cells (so-called diuretic herbs), over-stimulate or have a calming effect, depending on the stimulating or narcotic substances they contain. They work as "laxatives" because the herbs, considered as poisonous substances by your intestines, cause the remaining food particles to be driven from your intestines. The stronger the effect of the herb, the stronger the toxic properties. And don’t forget they are also poisonous in small doses! The damaging effects are not as obvious, but they accumulate after a period of time! Using herbs to remedy headaches, aching joints, stomach aches, badly functioning intestines and kidneys, etc. could prove fatal. They bring components into your body that are similar to hallucinatory drugs. Of course you will feel better! But at what price? Sometimes it will lead to a weakening of the immune system (which is supposed to protect you against diseases), sometimes even to death! Many people will not believe the abovementioned words. They may think I am crazy, exaggerating or simply a windbag. Fair enough. We still live in a democracy. But don’t come complaining to me later that I haven't warned you! Psychoactive herbs Approximately 20% of existing and widely used herbs contain large amounts of active substances that could lead to: weakness, respiratory problems, bad hearing, deteriorating sight, hallucinations, etc. Unfortunately it may take months or years for these side effects to manifest themselves. Regular drinkers of herbal tea will not link these symptoms to their dangerous habit. Nutmeg tea can lead to a higher pulse rate, queasiness, incoherent talking, etc. Sassafras or jimson herb tea is so poisonous, regular use could paralyze your liver and kidneys! All Chinese herbal teas, including ginseng, are treacherous, because they contains active substances, that could be dangerous to your health. Russian comfrey tea is renowned for its poisonous effects on the liver and to cause deadly internal bleeding. Senna leaf or golden seal tea lowers your blood pressure and may cause respiratory problems. Chamomile tea is often prescribed by "herbal specialists". The calming effects of chamomile tea are caused by psychoactive substances in the chamomile. A cup once in a while will not cause much damage, but regular drinking may cause strong allergic reactions. Skin rashes and serious respiratory problems are common in regular drinkers! Remember: a cup once in a while will not do much harm. Two cups a day increases the risks and could, if you prolong this trend, cause problems! How can I cure myself? That is very simple (which is why it is so difficult!) Complete rest Fast for 1 day on rose hip or fruit tea. Fast for three days on 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 liters of fruit juice. If you use these powerful natural hygiene medicines your recovery will take no time! If you do this thoroughly, you will feel completely revitalized.
MILK, CHEESE AND YOGURT: THE STRONGEST ALLERGY-INDUCING SUBSTANCES
For many years now milk and cheese have been known to precipitate severe allergic reactions. Time and time again I am astonished at the ignorance surrounding this subject. People will not and do not want to believe milk is bad for their health. Advertisements have convinced them that milk is crucial in obtaining sufficient calcium, proteins, etc. Moreover, milk pudding is delicious, pancakes are scrumptious, ice cream heavenly and some people cannot live without cheese. But they tend to forget about the havoc they have wreaked on their body, due to their consumption of milk and cheese over so many years. To convince you of this, I shall present you with a few arguments that will appeal to your imagination. Hopefully they will convince you to cut back on dairy products. Eating cheese could lead to rheumatism. The undigested cheese particles accumulate in various parts of your body. You will first feel this in places where blood-circulation is lowest: your hands for instance. Have you ever seen people whose hands were deformed by rheumatism? Or who can hardly move because of the pain? Doesn’t it frighten you? It does me! I bet they consumed a lot of diary products or ate a lot of meat. This is certain. Besides rheumatism diary products cause many other diseases, such as hardening of the arteries. Are you still a convinced milk and cheese consumer? I will probably not be able to convince everyone, but I cannot refrain from bringing the damaging effects of dairy products to your attention. Unfortunately the damage has mostly been done already and the way back to recovery is as good as impossible. Milk and phlegm formation Children over the age of three or four gradually start losing the renine and lactase enzymes necessary for dismantling milk. The digestion of dairy products becomes very difficult. Combinations such as: milk with your meal, cheese sandwiches or yogurt with fruit, etc., are in fact completely indigestible! It is like a thick " sticky goo” in your stomach, and will remain there for up to eight hours. Eventually only part of it will be digested. A large part will remain in your stomach in the form of a toxic by-product, namely phlegm. This acid product is so persistent and sticky that your body has to go to a great deal of trouble to get rid of it because phlegm contains casein, which among other things is used to manufacture very strong wood glues. Rub a product like that on your body and try getting it off again! The problem is that this product settles on internal organs like the thyroid gland, the mucous membranes of the lungs, throat and ears. No wonder your thyroid gland functions badly and you become fat and lethargic by consuming milk or cheese. And no wonder either that you and your children often have swollen and infected tonsils, infected ears, asthma, flu, etc.! I know almost everybody consumes milk and dairy products and food experts recommend them. If you really want a healthy lifestyle you have to leave them for what they are worth. If you cannot go without, consume them as little as possible and combine them correctly. It is all right to eat cheese with tomatoes, but not too often! Cheese is bad for your health and could cause rheumatism! Yogurt should be banned from your diet. And if you eat ice cream, do this five hours after your last meal. DO NOT EAT ANYTHING ELSE AFTERWARDS! This way you are giving your body a chance to deal with this product! CHEESE IS CONCENTRATED MILK 1 kg of cheese is made from 10 l of milk., which means a few slices of cheese already contain a large amount of milk. Milk in itself is difficult to digest, dismantling cheese into smaller components all the more. That is why you feel so tired and drained of energy after a meal containing cheese. You do not have enough energy to break down this product. You feel tired. Your body has had to work too hard, your stomach feels heavy: a large quantity of blood has gone to the lining of your stomach and is trying to accelerate the process. Your muscles, brains, heart, kidneys,... are starved from this blood for a long period of time. This explains a lot! Cheese does not only rob you of your energy, it also leaves large amounts of residue and phlegm which settle on your organs. So-called allergies, respiratory complaints, throat infections, ear infections, bronchitis, rheumatism, etc., can be directly linked to cheese. By avoiding all dairy products, asthma and acne can improve spectacularly after only a week. With correct food combinations, you will actually see the problems disappear. In children especially, whose mucous membranes have often been infected, the results are astounding! In the past they were easy victims for flu or ear infections -diseases which are considered typical for children- now they appear to be immune to them! A health-conscious person should think twice before giving cheese or yogurt to his or her children. Of course you cannot forbid them. But you can limit the amount of milk, cheese and yogurt that is consumed. Replace it with fruit juice, bananas, pears, apples and carrots. A much healthier alternative! NEVER EAT YOGURT Natural hygienists have been trying for years now to reduce the quantity of milk in people's diet. Lately they have been trying to tackle the excessive consumption of yogurt. Logical of course, yogurt is one of the principle causes of allergies. Advertisements have built a gigantic myth around yogurt. Common sense does not come into it anymore. And women's magazines which depend
on the income of advertisements for yogurt make it worse. Diets often make use of yogurt but people still cannot get it through their thick heads that yogurt is one of the main causes of food allergies, because of the proteins in the yogurt that start to decay. The weird thing is though, that this yogurt-allergy makes the craving for more yogurt even stronger! Result: a lot of dieting women have to contend with allergic reactions like nose and throat infections, bronchitis, migraines, headaches, etc. Hyperactivity in children can also be attributed to yogurt! But yogurt is good for my intestinal flora? That is what many people think. I am sorry to disappoint them, but they are wrong! The so-called healthy bacteria in the yogurt are destroyed by your stomach acid! And anyway, if you eat healthy food these are already abundantly present in your stomach! There is more! Yogurt contains substances that interfere with the absorption of iron: too much yogurt can cause anemia. Besides that, the proteins in yogurt are so bad for you, your body gets itself into a terrible mess. To make matters worse: yogurt contains antibodies against cow's diseases! Antibodies against ulcers on the udder! What, I ask you, is that to you? Absolutely nothing! Are you still surprised your immune system is so weakened after a yogurt diet? You have built up a resistance against cow's diseases, but not against human diseases! The smallest amount of stress can make you ill and severely disrupt the balance. Calcium: your fragile ego. Diets that prohibit milk, cheese and yogurt, always raise the same question: milk contains a lot of calcium, doesn’t it!? Where am I going to find the necessary calcium then? It is true that milk contains calcium but the funny thing is that because of the pasteurization process of milk, exactly those enzymes are destroyed which -be it partial- would have been able to absorb calcium. Even with the help of these enzymes the calcium would still be too coarse to be absorbed by your body! Only calcium in vegetables and fruit can be absorbed by your blood in your intestines and be transported to your bones! Calcium from dairy products is not only useless, it also interferes with the absorption of calcium in fruit and vegetables. The more milk and cheese you consume, the less calcium you absorb in the end! It is in exactly those countries where a lot of milk is consumed that most bones in the world are broken! There you go! I can already hear the bones breaking! And there are even more disadvantages. Due to the calcium-shortage caused by the over-consumption of dairy products, many people start shrinking as they grow older. Children who were given bottled milk instead of having been breast-fed when they were babies can experience the damaging consequences of this. You notice this when you look at the build-up of the skeleton of contemporary calcium-underfed young people; it often shows a flat chest. Teeth also show various deviations: grooves, small teeth, blueish or black teeth, buck-teeth. Other typical characteristics are: flat feet, bow-legs, knock-knees, a small pelvis (not mentioning all the problems this brings along for later motherhood), a small or elongated head, etc. You can see it is a long list, to which I could add pages more. So if you want to prevent all these problems for yourself and your descendants, leave milk for what it is worth. For vegetarians it may sound ludicrous from the mouth of one, but it is a fact: milk, cheese, and yogurt are more harmful to your health than meat! Milk and a calcium shortage are so inextricably interwoven, I will go into this a little deeper. By looking at your nails you can check for calcium shortages. If you can see white spots or blemishes, you have a calcium deficiency. The more spots, the worse. These blemishes are mostly formed in times of stress or exhaustion. They move approximately one millimeter every two weeks. So you can calculate yourself when the period of stress or excessive physical exhaustion started or ended. These blemishes indicate a deficient mineral absorption. Women should not get pregnant before these blemishes have completely disappeared. If they don't, they will saddle their off-spring with a serious mineral-deficiency, even before ever seeing the light of day. They will be stuck with it for the rest of their lives because this mineral-deficiency can never be put right again. When you are born weak, you will be weak for the rest of your life. You cannot make you teeth better, flat feet will remain flat, etc. That is why it is also of the utmost importance that women breast-feed their children and not bottle-feed. Mother's milk contains all substances for a beautiful human body. Bottle feeding does not. Only mother's milk can prevent weak bones or a shrinking skeleton in a later stage of life. Bottle-feeding is the cause of all problems! Does bottle-feeding, milk, cheese or yogurt have any other consequences? Beside bad teeth, knock-knees, etc. a mineral shortage also has a negative influence on your psyche. Don't forget your brain and nerve cells are being starved from important calcium, phosphor and magnesium combinations. Children become hyperactive and neurotic, adults intellectually underfed, with nervous behavior, depressions and mental disturbances as a consequence. Both children and adults may explode with rage at mere trifles. It is not surprising that overstrained people often end up in conflict situations. You can change this behavior by going on a natural diet (sustained for long enough). It contains an abundance of vitamins and minerals. You become less irritable and less sensitive to stress. Children calm down and adults feel reborn because of the revitalization of their glands. Only with real natural food can you preserve your health and suppress serious damage to your skeleton. Milk, cheese and yogurt accelerate the deterioration of your body. Fruit and vegetables improve your recovery. Citrus fruit especially contains large amounts of calcium. Sieved citrus juice will considerably improve calcium absorption in babies, thanks to the presence of citric acid, which also stimulates mineral absorption. Babies suffering from a calcium shortage or rickets, react very favorably to fresh citrus juice. If orange juice produces an allergic reaction, try grapefruit juice. If this does not have the desired effect either, you can always try fresh tomato juice of -mind- very ripe tomatoes. For growing children and adults citrus juices are also a rich source of calcium. That is why they are a "must" for healthier living. And finally a serious warning for macrobiotics: grains hardly contain any minerals at all, which means no calcium either! A diet consisting of large amounts of grains, without much fruit and vegetables is not healthy! In the beginning you may feel better with a
macrobiotic diet, but after a few years the first deficiency symptoms will manifest themselves. You are nervous, you find it harder to concentrate and your nerves come under heavy pressure. Children of macrobiotic parents are always born with weak bones. Rickets and feeble mindedness are possible consequences of a strict grain diet! Take note of this serious warning!
SALT, CANCER AND OTHER DEGENERATIVE DISEASES
One of the principal causes of cancer is the combustion of body cells. The biological reaction is the following: NaCl [Picture]H+ + Cl• + Na+ + OH• H2O salt hydrogen chloride + sodium hydroxide (caustic (rough soda or bicarbonate of soda)
(sodium chloride) (stomach acid)
Literally, this means part of the salt is converted into acid ions, hydrogen chloride or stomach acid, and an alkaline, sodium hydroxide. Since both substances are present in the same proportions there is a neutral reaction in our body. That way the pH of water also remains neutral (= pH 7) when you add salt. Nevertheless, in the case of protein consumption your stomach will extract hydrogen chloride from your blood to prepare the proteins for digestion. Consequently, there is a slight surplus of the strongly alkaline sodium hydroxide. To feel how powerful this substance is, try putting your hands in a rough soda solution. The average Western diet contains three to six times more proteins than necessary, therefore there must be enough hydrogen chloride (caustic soda) to digest the proteins. The consequence is that a lot of sodium hydroxide remains in your blood. What happens then? NaOH (a strong alkaline) reacts with the carbonic acid. This produces chemically neutral sodium carbonate. If this did not happen, salt-consuming man would internally combust within a few days, because of the corrosive caustic soda. But, and now I am getting down to the very heart of the matter, not all caustic soda is converted: traces of it remain in your blood. This depends on the amount of salt, fruit and vegetables you eat with your meal. Now you also know why the consumption of too much salt (or sea salt, celery salt, etc.) causes so many problems: systematically your cells are being overburdened and are combusting. Just like plants "burn" when you sprinkle them with salt, you are destroying body cells with excessive salt consumption. Oh dear! Exactly! Your body cells will shriek with pain when they come into contact with the corrosive soda. Of course the procedure in your body is a lot more complicated. But it is not too difficult to understand. It comes down to this: alkaline salts scorch your cells, just like salt scorches plants. The muscle structure of the womb (for example) is an ideal place to deposit rough soda. Continued salt consumption will lead to an accumulation of scorched cells, which will form a nutrient for the feared and only too common uterine cancer. One of the first noticeable signs is a stinging white secretion, caused by the scorching alkaline salts. Because of this "combustion" the mucous membrane loses its protective function and finally this will lead to cancer of the cervix. Is that how other cancers start? Yes. This process takes place in every part of the body where alkaline salts can be deposited. In the beginning they cause ulceration’s, infections and accumulations of connective tissues. This drastically alters the cellular structure of your tissue and eventually it will lead to further deterioration of the already low blood circulation. Consequently, the alkaline salts can be deposited even more easily on these places. The painful and sometimes fatal consequences are prostate cancer, stomach and intestinal cancer, breast cancer, brain tumors, leukemia, etc. Is salt really that harmful? Just remember this: the life-span of experimental animals is shortened by about 30 to 60% when given salt. Hopefully you realize the devastating effect salt has on your body now. Maybe it has not sunk in yet. A lot of people do not enjoy their food without salt. "There is no taste to it", they will say and they will sprinkle even more salt over their food, have another packet of salt crisps or just continue eating bread that is full of salt! Why do we continue to eat salt? Salt can be compared to a drug, it gives you a "kick". As is the case with every addiction, you are undermining your health. You are starting an irreversible process in your body. Because so many people cannot seem to quit their "salt addiction", there is little hope of a drop in the number of cancer cases.
This is terrible!? That is your first reaction when reading this. Everybody knows of a person who has died of cancer or a brain hemorrhage. The fact that there is an unmistakable link between these illnesses and the consumption of salt, is not obvious. The link is there though, which is why you have to do something about it. Hopefully tomorrow morning you will order a salt-free loaf of bread in your natural food store! I also advise against Dr. Vogel's so-called natural salt products! Otherwise the alkaline salts will continue to accumulate in crucial parts of your body and will put a considerable damper on your enjoyment of life. Is salt also dangerous for children? Most definitely. I would also like to warn you against an excessive sodium supply to the unborn child. It is not improbable the fetus will be affected by large amounts of salt from the mother. A possible consequence may be infant leukemia, due to the lack of oxygen during pregnancy. On top of that infants are often given salt-enriched products. Almost all consumer organizations have warned against baby foods containing too much salt. Sodium glutamate, a conservative which is often added, is disastrous to the infant's health. Chemically fertilized vegetables often contain too much sodium nitrate. Newspapers regularly comment on the damaging effects of this substance. Bubble bath is possibly an even bigger source of misery than food! When you take a bath you absorb a large amount of sodium through the skin! A reaction takes place through your skin. Waste products (sweat) are secreted and at the same time other substances are absorbed. As a result of the abovementioned factors millions of children run the risk of chronic tiredness (due to the decrease in cellular tension), obesity (due to the accumulation of extra water), hyper nervous behavior (due to the strong stimulation etc.). As you can see, it is a long list. And do not forget: 50% of all adults suffer from high blood pressure. How can I prevent these problems? By strongly reducing your intake of salt. Then eliminate all salt-rich products like chips, salty fish, etc. Buy salt-free bread. 100 gm of bread sometimes already contains up to 2 gm of salt ! That is why I advice you to buy SALT-FREE (light whole-wheat) bread. Salt-free white bread tastes terrible and is not very healthy anyway. Salt-free light whole-wheat bread has a nice taste and is easily incorporated into your diet. Then what? Eat fruit. Fruit contains large amounts of potassium, which suppresses the negative aspects of salt. In my book "Peak Performance Food ", I covered this extensively. Contrary to fruit, vegetables should not be consumed excessively because invariably they contain too much sodium. Apart from that, vegetables also contain large amounts of proteins, which always have a detrimental effect in cases of high consumption. In other words, only eating vegetables is not good either. Indeed, you are not a vegetable eater, but fruitarian (fruit eater) which is also indicated by your teeth. This does not mean you have to avoid vegetables. Simply try not to eat too many. On the other hand you do not have to put a limit on the amount of fruit you can eat.
FRUIT ACIDS DESTROY DENTAL ENAMEL
Fruit is mostly picked when it is not ripe yet, therefore it contains a higher acid level than normal. These acids are so powerful they are comparable to sulfuric acid, which is very acidic indeed. The pH value is extremely low and the lower the pH, the more powerful the acid. Why do oranges have a sweet taste then? Fair enough, notwithstanding this sweet taste the concentration of citric acid is high. Even in the sweetest oranges it is so concentrated it affects your dental enamel, no matter what! How come? Your teeth are not strong enough. It is a legacy of our ancestors and their bad eating habits that our teeth are not healthy anymore. You’d be amazed about the amount of children with bad teeth. In many cases it's not only teeth that show irregularities, dental enamel has also been damaged and the smallest amount of acid affects it. Nearly all food products with a pH value lower than 5 to 4.5 destroy weak enamel. Examples of such products are cola, yogurt, sauerkraut, all citrus juices and all acid fruits (like sour apples, pineapples, kiwi fruit, etc.). How can I prevent my enamel from being damaged? Avoid unnatural food products like cola, sauerkraut and yogurt! If you drink citrus juice with a straw so the citric acid does not come into contact with your dental enamel the problem is solved.
TAKE NOTE OF THIS SERIOUS WARNING!!! Are my bones also affected by fruit acid? No, that is impossible. In your body, it is broken down into water and carbonic acid, so it does not affect your bones. The process goes as follows:
CH2 • COOH | C(OH) • COOH CH2 • COOH citric acid
CO2 + H2O
oxygen carbonic acid + water
This chemical reaction proves that oranges do not have the slightest acid effect on your body, contrary to what some people claim. The acidic part of the orange -citric acid- solely consists of carbon atoms, oxygen atoms and hydrogen atoms. Under the influence of oxygen these substances oxidize. They disappear through your mouth and skin in the form of carbonic acid and water, your bones are not affected. Will the acid level of my blood change? Strangely enough your blood becomes more alkaline (the opposite of acidic) when you drink orange juice, because the citric acid is broken down into soluble citrates (citric acid salts) that contain calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, etc. When they are absorbed by your body they are broken down again into free citric acid and metal ions. This free citric acid combines with oxygen and is secreted again in an oxidized form as water and carbon dioxide through breathing, perspiring and urinating. The metals (alkalizing) remain in the blood. They combine with carbonic acid to form carbonates and bicarbonates, renowned for their buffering properties, which means they keep your blood healthy. This is why orange juice is one of the best medicines when you are ill. SERIOUS WARNING Lemons contain high concentrations of citric acid. The juice of 10 lemons contains so much acid your body is (temporarily) unable to cope with it. Before these acids have been dealt with they have turned your blood acidic. This is why it is inadvisable to drink the juice of more than five lemons a day! When you are ill this is dangerous, because your body’s digestive capacities have been seriously affected. If you drink too much lemon juice you could go into shock! For people weakened by illness it could prove fatal to drink the juice of more than twenty lemons a day. In other words, the renowned body-purifying lemon juice treatment can seriously undermine your health Do lemons affect dental enamel? Yes, they do. The acid in lemon juice can have a corrosive effect on your dental enamel. If, over a period of three months, you have five lemons a day, undoubtedly your dental enamel will have been corroded away by the acid! In other words I have to avoid acid fruit? It would be wise to do so if you want to save your teeth. If your dental enamel was not all that strong from the start, it could completely disappear after one to five years by eating one orange or one sour apple a day. If your dental enamel is stronger you may find it has been severely affected after a few years by eating two to three sour apples or kiwi fruit a day. But that is terrible?! I know. That is why I am paying so much attention to this unwelcome effect of unripe and acid fruit. Acid fruit is very medicinal, so undoubtedly you will want to continue eating it, which is possible if you liquidize it. Make sure the juices never come into contact with your dental enamel: drink them with a straw! Don’t forget this advice if you want to save your teeth. When am I allowed to drink fruit juice? Only drink fruit juice on an empty stomach. Never before or after a meal, because it causes vigorous fermentation. In the mornings, when your enzymes are not functioning properly yet, fruit juice is digested extremely easy. Later in the day this becomes extremely difficult. The first rule of natural food hygiene is: "Only drink liquidized acid fruit on an empty stomach." It is the most powerful breakfast imaginable!
DIET IN CASE OF ILLNESS (FLU, BRONCHITIS, EAR INFECTION, ETCETERAS)
Whether it is flu, bronchitis, sinusitis or any other illness, the natural hygiene therapy is always the same: Start FASTING! Why? Your body has been seriously weakened and your resistance is low. All your energy has gone into maintaining vital functions, like heartbeat and breathing. There is not much energy to spare for the remaining functions. Enzyme production is brought to a minimum. The amylase enzyme in your saliva, necessary for the digestion of starch has been put on non-active. How come? When you are ill the acid level of your body is too high. Your body is incapable of producing amylase, because this is only possible in an alkaline environment. In other words, all the starch you eat (bread, potatoes, rice, etc.) is not digested and remains in your stomach. During the fermentation process large amounts of toxic substances are released. These are absorbed into your bloodstream and make your cells and organs even more ill. Have any other enzymes been put out of action? Yes. Not only the amylase enzyme is inactive, so is the pepsin enzyme. And because pepsin is crucial in the digestion of proteins, this can have an important effect on the progress of the illness. Undigested proteins decay. The products released in this process, indole, skatole, and phenol (among others) are extremely toxic. They will bring your body into a dangerous state of over-acidity, also called toxemia. To recover, all protein containing products have to be forsworn. Even nuts and other natural protein sources are strictly forbidden! These are not digested and your condition deteriorates! Why are proteins dangerous? Eating proteins when you are ill produces decay and decomposition processes. All pathogenic bacteria and viruses in your body will feast on the decomposing food. Like piranhas they will devour the decomposing "food victim". Once satisfied they will multiply at a terrific rate. Afterwards they will spread around your body and undermine all vital functions. Depending on your body's resistance, eating proteins when you are ill could prove fatal. Look at the health of people after the First World War for instance, the population was severely weakened by not being able to eat fresh fruit and vegetables. Spanish flu broke out and killed twenty million people! Do you know why? Because people were told to eat well when they were ill! This was done without hesitation, even when people were too ill to eat. Never in history has a flu virus had so much deadly success. Twenty million victims. More lives than were claimed in the whole of the First World War! No wonder people panic when there is talk of a new epidemic. And every year we are being warned against new strains. But what they do not mention is that by eating healthy food (combined correctly) it is ALMOST impossible to be infected. And if you are infected: by eating NOTHING and only drinking fruit juice, you will recover in no time at all! It is as simple as that! And the claim that you should eat well when you are ill is dangerous nonsense! What is the most dangerous virus? That all depends on the condition of your body. If you do not have a healthy diet, as is the case for so many people (incorrect food combinations, not enough fresh fruit or vegetables) any virus could prove fatal. Even very weak viruses, like the AIDS virus can undermine your resistance to such an extent, they could be fatal.
And what if I have a healthy diet, In this case, you will be able to deal with all viruses. It will be almost impossible in fact, for you to become ill, in spite of all epidemics. Thanks to the constant flood of natural vitamins, minerals, enzymes and living substances, you can deal with just about anything. Also in case of an outbreak of meningitis (spotted fever), etc.? If you have a healthy diet and take the rules of nature into account (sufficient rest and relaxation) you will not become ill. Unaffected you will be able to move among thousands of sick patients, without a chance of being contaminated! I know it sounds incredible, but believe me: healthy food (which means a large amount of fruit), makes you incredibly strong which enables you to successfully beat off any bacterial or viral attack!
What should I to do when I do not have a healthy diet and I become ill? Stop eating immediately. If you continue to eat, the bacteria will multiply in the rich nutrient (of decomposing food) you have provided them with. Before you know it, the illness will have reached an advanced stage. The outbreak of the flu epidemic after the First World War, is the best example of this. In that case, fasting is the only possible solution when an epidemic breaks out? I cannot repeat it enough. The bacteria will not find a nutrient in the decomposition processes and will not be able to attack you. Afterwards you have to convert to a fruit juice diet. Only then will you be completely protected. When you always eat healthy food, obviously there is no need to worry. You can compare it to a compost heap. The fermentation and decomposition processes are a paradise for the bacteria and they multiply extremely quickly. If you stop adding compost, this process will be brought to a standstill. Your body works in exactly the same fashion. If you eat unhealthy food, bacteria go on the rampage. Depending on the strength of the virus this will happen rapidly or slowly. The flu virus multiplies exponentially. Before you know it, you have been counted out. The slower AIDS virus on the other hand needs more time. Are there any other things I have to pay attention to? Do not exhaust yourself, because you will be giving germs a better chance to strike. Everything that detracts from the power of digestion, helps germs to multiply. Under this, I understand: eating when you are tired, eating when you are too cold or too warm (cold feet = bad), eating when you are running a fever (very dangerous), eating when you are worried, afraid or sad. Anger also increases the multiplication of pathogenic bacteria. Can I also rid myself of serious infections like pneumonia, cholera, etc.? Of course. The success of all pathogenic germs can be traced back to a weakened resistance. If your resistance is strengthened, you will get better. In natural hygiene there is no panic whatsoever about infectious diseases. Doctors who apply natural hygiene know they have nothing to be afraid of. They are working hard to spread the truth about infectious diseases. But this is a slow process. How come? Obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, etc., are all caused by bad eating habits. Everybody knows this, but have people changed their eating habits? No. Anyway, not many people are familiar with correct food combinations and the consequences of incorrect combinations. This is improving though, more and more people are giving up penicillin treatments. The fruit juice diet (the juice of subtropical fruit especially), which has incredible healing powers, will be enormously successful! How do I start on such a diet? With a one day fast, to rid your body from all remaining food particles. Only warm fruit tea (rose hip tea especially) or warm lemon juice is allowed.
RESUME DIET IN CASE OF ILLNESS (FLU, BRONCHITIS, EAR INFECTION,...) fast for one day on hot rose hip tea with lemon juice until your temperature has dropped to 36.5 °C then: FRESH JUICE OF SUBTROPICAL FRUITS
Is fresh juice really that powerful? You bet. Freshly squeezed orange juice for instance is infinitely more stronger than antibiotics, it is 100% more effective and has no harmful side effects. The tonic effect on children is unequaled. On top of that it tastes delicious and it peps them up extra quick. You’ll be astonished of the result! Is there an explanation for that? Of course. Citric acid (found in oranges in high quantities) destroys all bacteria and focuses of infection when it comes into direct contact with them. In case of throat infections this can be brought into immediate practice. Squeeze one or more oranges or lemons
and drink this juice, undiluted. Before swallowing, gargle. But it stings! That is a good sign. The worse it stings, the worse the throat infection. If, for instance, you have difficulties in swallowing, undoubtedly the reaction will be severe. It means the citric acid is working on the infected areas. In a radical way the focuses of infection are being disinfected and purified. The volcanic reaction which seems to be taking place in your throat will not last long. And the tears in your eyes only make the whole thing comical. (laughing can also cause your eyes to water!) My mouth is full of saliva! Not surprising. Saliva dilutes the sour juice to help you swallow it. Everything happens quickly after that. Less than a minute after swallowing the juice you already feel better. To your surprise your throat will not be as sore anymore. Before this drastic treatment you had to force things down your choked up throat, this is not the case anymore. Orange juice treatments are the ideal method in combating throat infections. Don't forget to keep your irritated throat warm with a scarf (all sick organs have to be kept warm). In other words, antibiotics are superfluous? Most definitely, except in extreme life-threatening circumstances. The fact is, citrus juices in combination with a scarf are much more effective than antibiotics, which only combat the symptoms, but do not really speed up your recovery. Citrus juice does. As citric acid also penetrates the infected walls of your throat, the deeper situated focuses of infection are also dealt with. In cases of flu, bronchitis, fever, etc. citric acid will also deal with the pathogenic germs and bacteria. Does citric acid make everything bacteria-free? Sure. When you go on holiday to the tropics you can make use of this. Water can be purified (and made bacteria-free) by adding lemon juice and letting it draw. That way you prevent possible infections, tropical diarrhea and other discomforts! Can any other illnesses be cured by an orange juice treatment? Too many to mention. I would also like to say that oranges are capable of pulverizing kidney stones. It is one of the properties of citric acid. People with kidney stones must undergo complicated and dangerous operations. It is also possible to have the stones pulverized by rays but such operations are always expensive and painful. And not always successful. Orange juice prevents this from happening though. Fresh fruit juice stimulates your immune system against other illnesses. The remedy for kidney stone sufferers is the following: fresh fruit juice on an empty stomach! And all problems are(dis)solved!
ONLY NATURE CAN CURE AIDS!
At the time of writing this chapter there is still a worldwide AIDS scare. Understandable of course, if you consider how much people infected by the virus have to suffer. Certain aspects have still not received their due attention though. The AIDS virus can only get a grip on your body if your resistance is low. Some people have lived with the virus for ten years, and are still not showing any signs of illness. How come? Their immune systems are strong enough! And how can you improve your immunity? By drinking large amounts of fresh fruit juice! This solution does not only look simple, it is simple! But executing it is a lot more problematic. There is an analogy with the past here. 1747, somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. We are on board of James Lind's ship. More than a dozen of his men are dying from a terrible disease: their mouth is bleeding profusely, their teeth are falling out, they are covered in ulcers and bruises. Scurvy! None of them has any hope of survival. They can barely move. Even talking is difficult. On board there is a small supply of oranges. Six members of the crew are selected and are given the fresh oranges. Three days later they have recovered! The others died in terrible pain! This was conclusive evidence that oranges could "cure" this terrible "disease" in a record time! Before this was officially recognized by the British Admiralty hundreds of thousands had died from this bizarre and terrifying "disease"! 2000. The world is panicking again. AIDS! AIDS! AIDS! Millions have been "infected" with the virus. Hundreds of thousands are dying from this "so-called" virus. Traditional science is powerless, just like it has been with rheumatism, cancer, high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, etc. Patients are dying in the most terrible circumstances: their resistance has completely gone. They can barely move, like those sailors suffering from scurvy. Many get pneumonia or other infections, which ultimately prove to be fatal. Scurvy runs a similar course. A "vaccination" or a "medicine" seems to be an illusion. The more it spreads, the more desperate official doctors become. Millions seek for a "wonder cure". All in vain though. Why? The AIDS virus is actually a very weak virus, much weaker than a flu virus. When you have an unhealthy diet (which applies to just about everybody), the virus is able to attack: within a short period your immune system has been rendered useless. The book, entitled Roger's Recovery from Aids, describes how a doctor discovers that AIDS only breaks out when you are physically
weakened by incorrect eating habits. By not eating enough fresh fruit (this is not the only reason) your resistance is powerless against the AIDS virus. It also describes how dangerous medicines and drugs are. They bring more harm to your immune system than good. Instead of strengthening your immune system, they weaken it even more. Even taking aspirins could be fatal, because they destroy the vitamin C supply in your body. Other habits which undermine your resistance against the virus are: smoking, alcohol, exhaustion, stress, etc. Unhealthy eating habits are still the most important factor though. What do people’s diets consist of nowadays? White bread, fat, chocolate, meat, hamburgers, sugar, tinned vegetables, boiled vegetables, cheese, milk, cola, coffee, beer, wine and hardly any fruit. Result: weak resistance, which very easily leads to flu, bronchitis, etc. In these conditions it is not surprising the AIDS virus multiplies exponentially. How can I improve my resistance? By not taking any medicines whatsoever. This is of the utmost importance because "medicines" undermine your resistance. A "medicine" capable of destroying the virus is IMPOSSIBLE because the very core of your resistance is under attack. Only FRESH FRUIT is able to restore it again. The effectiveness of fruit contrary to antibiotics, is obvious in the following example involving the British fleet during the Seven Year War. The stench on board the hospital ship was overwhelming. As much as 75% of the patients were dying with terrible open wounds. Their resistance had been reduced to zero. Flu, diarrhea, pneumonia, etc. were proving to be fatal. If we had been able to see pictures of this on television now, we would have panicked. What is that "strange and unknown disease"? It sounds harsh, but what I am trying to make clear is the following: there is no "cure" for the AIDS virus. Imagine a modern day doctor. He treats scurvy patients like AIDS patients: he pumps antibiotics, AZT and other so-called "medicines" against AIDS into them. Result: absolutely nothing. On a different ship James Lind administers fresh orange juice to the sick men. Result: in three days they made a "miraculous recovery"! What should I do when I am infected? When you have become infected you have to change your lifestyle radically. Go to bed on time, no smoking, no alcohol and no medicines. These are just a few of the most important steps you will have to take. ANTIBIOTICS AND AIDS -Indirectly- the use of antibiotics is the main cause of AIDS. An example from recent history can clarify this. When DDT came onto the market everybody thought of it as a "miracle-product” against insects. But what happened? The insects mutated and became immune to it: enormous amounts had to be sprayed to have any effect. Birds, mice, cows and sheep died on a massive scale after spraying fields with DDT, to great annoyance of science. But you could still buy it from every drugstore with the label "guaranteed harmless to humans and animals"... We now see the same thing happening in the fight against AIDS. What actually happened? After 1970 antibiotics kept getting stronger! By the way, translated literally antibiotics means "against-live" (anti-bios). In the beginning antibiotics were reasonably effective, but massive administration made viruses and bacteria resistant to it. The same effect as seen with DDT. Bacteria are no longer destroyed by antibiotics,... people are though! Just ask any AIDS patient how many antibiotics he has had to take or is taking. And if you did not know yet: gay people especially, often use antibiotics to rid themselves of venereal diseases. Now do you understand why this group of people is affected most severely by AIDS and why other antibiotics users the same fate awaits? Everybody who takes antibiotics regularly is in peril! The question why AIDS is such a big problem in Africa is also quickly solved: nearly all pharmaceutical companies send their surplus of out of date antibiotics to this continent!!!!. It is available as candy... To end, a riddle: due to antibiotics and AZT the number of white blood cells drops. This warning is even stated in the directions for use. An AIDS patient already has too few white blood cells. By using antibiotics and AZT, even more are destroyed! Can you explain this riddle to me? Are you still surprised so many AIDS patients are dying?
ANTIBIOTICS DESTROY INTESTINAL FLORA When you take antibiotics, part of your intestinal flora is destroyed and you are incapable of absorbing sufficient vitamins and minerals from your food. Result: a decrease in the production of white and red blood cells. In other words, you are interfering with your body’s resistance. After several antibiotic treatments or the prolonged use of AZT all the bacteria of your intestinal flora about one hundred thousand billion- are destroyed, permanently! It gives you diarrhea which makes the absorption of nutrients almost impossible. You lose an enormous amount of weight and you are no longer protected against infections. That is what happens with AIDS patients when they are in the terminal stage. Not the HIV-virus, but the destruction of the intestinal flora and the administration of antibiotics is the main reason for the outbreak of AIDS! Once you know AIDS is caused by the destruction of intestinal flora, a small extension of your knowledge is necessary. You see, your intestinal bacteria are also destroyed by bad diets or unhealthy habits, such as smoking, the use of medicines (no matter which ones), poppers, laxatives. Concerning food I was thinking primarily of: coffee, tea, strong herbs, salt, alcohol, chocolate, vinegar, pepper, fermented cheeses, egg white, beans, nuts, mustard, meat, fish When you study this list carefully you can see for yourself how you can minimize the risk of AIDS. The reason why gay people easily contract AIDS is also simple: in general they have an unhealthy diet, smoke and drink a lot, take
poppers and fight venereal diseases with antibiotics. If you want to recover from AIDS you have to abstain from everything in the abovementioned list. It is as simple as that! This list does not only apply to AIDS but to all other terminal diseases, which are strongly influenced by abovementioned lifestyle. Primarily I am thinking about all cancers. Rheumatism, gout, asthma, etc. can also be traced back to weak intestinal flora! How can my intestinal flora be restored again? By eating unwashed organically grown vegetables. If you do wash them the bacteria, capable of restoring your intestinal flora are rinsed off. Then you liquidize it into fresh juice. The best vegetables are: • carrots • lettuce • white celery • celery • lamb's lettuce The juice in these vegetables is rich in bacteria, (identical to those in your intestinal flora) which will restore your body to its super healthy state. If you take this advice to heart you will build a resistance, which will make you resistant to any disease, including AIDS! Considering this, you also know what to do now to become HIV-negative in case you are HIV-positive!
HOW TO CURE AIDS?
Primarily, everybody should know there is a big difference between being HIV-positive and AIDS.
THERAPY IF YOU ARE HIV-POSITIVE If you are HIV-positive you should start by following the principles in this book. Then a strict eighteen-day fast is required. During this period, drink 1 to 2 liters of demineralized water without carbonic acid a day. After this fast, eat melons and sub-acid fruit (either the whole fruit or the juice) for one day. Then start incorporating bread, rice and potatoes into your diet. Three months after the fast you should test HIV-negative!!! Outline: • For 2-3 months follow the diet described in this book; • After this period, fast for eighteen-days. Drink 1 to 2 liters of water a day (without minerals or gas). During these eighteen days it is imperative that absolutely nothing is eaten, that includes fruit and vegetables. Besides water, all drinks are forbidden. Don’t brush your teeth. • This fast should be followed by a day in which only sub-acid fruit juice is drunk. Complement this with easily digestible fruit (grated apples, grapes, melons, papayas, mangos, steamed bananas). • After this day you are allowed to add vegetables to your diet. Especially unwashed organically grown lettuce (juice) is of vital importance.
THERAPY IN CASE OF AIDS When the AIDS-virus has struck, both the preparation process and the recovery process require more time. A year and a half to recover from terminal AIDS is not uncommon. In this case I have presupposed that the number of T-4 cells has dropped to an absolute minimum. There have been several cases of AIDS-patients who only had 4 to 8 T-4 cells, but who still managed to recover. Preparation process in case of AIDS • Follow the diet mentioned below for four months. Observe this period because your vitamin and mineral supply has been depleted. If you do not stick to this diet for the required length of time, and the fast is started too soon, your life is at risk, because your body is not strong enough to cope with a fast yet. Practical menus I. From morning until noon: • 1 to 2.5 liters of sub-acid fruit juice. (for example: melon, sweet apples, pears) • When you drink grape juice, make sure not to mix it with the juice of any other fruit. It is best digested when drunk separately.
Instead of sub-acid fruit, it is also possible to use melons (or the juice).
• Drink the juice slowly, if not, you will disturb your blood sugar level and you might become dizzy. • REGULARLY SQUEEZE FRESH JUICE. After fifteen minutes the vitamins and the minerals have oxidized. In other words, it is necessary to squeeze fresh juice regularly and not to wait too long before drinking it. • Do not use acid fruit! It affects your liver which in turn will have an effect on the number of blood platelets. Examples: 1.
8 a.m.: 1 to 1 1/2 liters of sweet apple juice 10 a.m.: mango + papaya 12 a.m.: 3 to 8 steamed bananas
Suggestion: Papaya and the papain in the papaya pips (bite to release) are excellent against infections, worms and parasites. Papaya and papain have also proved very effective against cancer. 2. 8-10 a.m.: 2 1/2 liters of grape juice 12 a.m.: mango + papaya + lychee 8 a.m.: big melon 10 a.m.: mango + papaya + pitaya 12 a.m.: steamed bananas Attention: The bananas must be ripe! If they are not, fry them. Unripe bananas can cause flatulence and stomach cramps. 4. 8-9 a.m.: 1 to 1 1/2 liters of grape juice 10 a.m.: 3/4 liters of sweet apple juice 12 a.m.: steamed bananas 8 a.m.: 1 liter of melon juice 9 a.m.: apple juice 10 a.m.: mango + papaya + durian + grapes 12 a.m.: steamed bananas 8 a.m.: 1 liter of melon juice 10 a.m.: 2 melons 12 a.m.: steamed bananas 8 a.m.: 1 liter of grape juice 10 a.m.: melon 12 a.m.: steamed bananas 8 a.m.: mango + papaya 10 a.m.: mango + papaya + lychee + pear 12 a.m.: steamed bananas Remark: Grapes and apples contain little vitamin C. Therefore it is very important to eat as many melons, papayas and mangos as possible. 9. Read the possibilities in this book for variations on these menus.
II. Dinner (4. 30 - 5 p.m.): 4 1/2 to 5 hours after lunch: 1 to 2 glasses of carrot-celery-lettuce juice. Only use ordinary lettuce. Do not use crinkly lettuce, Roman lettuce or iceberg lettuce. Warning: take 1/2 to 1 hour to drink! (6 - 6.30 p.m.)
Remark: the vegetables must be organic and should not be washed! If you do, the bacteria that are capable of restoring your intestinal flora are rinsed off! After 1 1/2 hours: 150 to 200 gm of boiled white Basmati rice + bread + avocado + vegetables (see “Recipes”) + lightly fried egg yolk if so desired. or 500 to 800 gm of potatoes + avocado + vegetables + egg yolk or 300 to 400 gm of bread (salt-free) + avocado + vegetables + egg yolk Remark: It is all right to combine bread and rice. For example an avocado + rice sandwich. Remember to chew well! Warning: Do not drink during or after your meal! If you do, it could cause fermentation and diarrhea, which in turn can cause flu. Leukemia patients as well as many cancer patients need to follow the same schedule as AIDS patients, including the fast. Prohibited: • Acid fruit (affects your liver) • Any kind of medicine • Cheese (very toxic product for AIDS patients; it causes Kaposi’s sarcoma) • Dried fruit • Fresh bananas (It is all right to eat them if you bake or steam them first) • Mushrooms • Nuts • Proteins (see list in this book) • Prunes • Vitamin and mineral supplements • All herbs FASTING AND VERY ILL AIDS PATIENTS AIDS patients who have lost a great deal of weight, must follow the diet for four months before fasting. This applies to nearly all patients with less than 100 T-4 cells. Afterwards a short fast is required (2 to 7 days), which should be repeated every 2 to 3 months. After a year or a year and a half it is possible to go on a prolonged 20 day fast, which should bring about a full recovery. Special guidelines during the fast: To avoid crises, strictly observe the following guidelines. With complete dedication you will be surprised at what you can achieve. 1) Drink one to two liters of water a day during the fast. No more and no less. If you do not urinate enough, ureum accumulates and may cause fever. Too much water has a contrary effect on the treatment. If it is very warm, you are allowed to drink more. Rose hip tea has a refreshing effect. 2) Keep your feet warm with hot water bottles. Sleep under a duvet and make sure you don’t cool down. A drop in body temperature during the fast could prove fatal. Put the heating up and make sure humidity is high enough. 3) Complete rest is required during the fast. Watching television is allowed. Reading should be limited, because it is too tiring. Going for walks is out of the question. Absolute rest is of vital importance! Duration of the fast If you fast for 20 continuous days, your white blood cells are able to destroy the HIV virus. If you fast for a shorter period, not all are destroyed and recovery is impossible. Blood tests are important: if the T-4 cell count remains low, fast again. Attention: It is inadvisable to have your blood analyzed within a three month time span after the fast. The first few weeks there is no noticeable difference. After 2 months your blood platelets should be normal again, the T-4’s a few weeks later. For these reasons many AIDS patients wish to go on the 20 day fast as soon as possible. I urge these people to be cautious. Not only are they risking their lives, they are also completely destroying the reputation of this diet. Only when your body has been sufficiently prepared, you are allowed to fast. The duration of the fast must be determined first though. It is best to start off with a short fast so your liver can recover from the damage caused by taking antibiotics (AZT, DDI, ...).
Problems during the fast.
If problems should arise, stop fasting immediately. It means some of your organs have not yet recovered sufficiently to cope with the fast. It is also possible that the remaining amounts of toxic substances is still too great, in which case your white blood cells are too busy with the removal of toxins, to cope with anything else. Only in a purified body are white blood cells able to quickly and expertly attack and destroy viruses. The more purified your body, the quicker the destruction of the virus and the sooner you are cured. In practice, it means the amount of fruit and fruit juice must be as high as possible. The more fruit juice you drink, the sooner you recover and the less problems you will have during the fast. Problems will only arise when the amount of toxic substances in your body is too great. Avoid these problems by preparing your body thoroughly for the fast. The better the preparation process, or in other words, the more fruit, the smaller the chance of serious complications during the fast. Almost all crises are due to insufficient preparation or not eating enough fruit. Why is fasting the only way of destroying the virus? During a fast your whole defense mechanism is being mobilized and while your body and mind are in a state of complete relaxation, your white blood cells are able to pick out and destroy the HIV-virus. Insufficient rest or an un-completed fast will give the HIV-virus a chance to multiply again. After a couple more months on the diet, a new fast will be in order to get on top of the virus. Allow me to explain this with a simple example. Imagine you are the owner of a castle with horses, gardens, ... with a big fence around it to isolate it from the outside world. All food is delivered to you: hay for the horses, meat for the cats and dogs, ... But there are also rats on your estate, which you want to get rid of. The occasional rat is caught and eaten by a dog or a cat, but it does not suffice. Slowly but surely the rat population increases to such an extent you have a plague on your hands and measures need to be taken. You decide to seal off the fence completely, preventing the cats and dogs from leaving the estate. Then you decide not to feed them anymore. The horses and other animals are brought into safety. After a few days the animals will eat anything: mice, rats, birds, etc. Anything they come across. After a week they will be so hungry they will do anything to satisfy their hunger. Slowly but surely the rat population will decrease. 2 weeks after this drastic action there will be just a few rats left and it will be only a matter of days before these too are gone. Only when the last pregnant rat has been eaten are you able to claim success. The same happens in your body. Abstain from food long enough, and your body will hunt down anything that is edible. The weakest parts of your organs are eaten first. At the same time, anything “alien” to your body is attacked. Out of pure starvation your cells will devour the HIV-virus and dismantle it into dead organic material. Only when you fast for a sufficient length of time, can the last HIV-virus, which is hidden away in the deepest recesses of your body, be destroyed. And that is when you are free of the virus! The same method can be applied to other viruses, such as flu, meningitis, pneumonia and thousands of others Preparing for the fast The length of preparation time required for the fast depends completely on the amount of vitamins and minerals present in your body. If you have lost a great deal of weight your vitamin supply is minimal. If you are overweight, you are in a comfortable position. Goemaar, an AIDS patient with a 180 T-4 cells had the advantage of being overweight. Due to the illness, his weight had dropped from 128 kg to 108 kg. I put him on an exclusive fruit-vegetable diet and within 2 months his weight had dropped to 86 kg. He then fasted for 13 days and his weight dropped to 76 kg. He hardly had any problems during the fast but this was solely due to the fact that for 2 full months he had been on an exclusive fruit-vegetable diet. Nearly all AIDS patients are in less favorable positions. They have lost a great deal of weight and need to put some on before being able to fast. In the meantime they should eat a lot of bread, rice, potatoes or steamed bananas, notwithstanding the fact that in doing so some of the vitamins and minerals that are ingested through fruit and vegetables will be lost. To compensate, the preparation phase, depending on your condition, should take up to three or four months. If you don’t respect this period, your vitamin supply will be too low to help you through it. When you have been seriously ill, you should start off with short fasts, followed by periods in which more strengthening food is eaten. Afterwards you can start fasting again. Giving up the fast If your vitamin supplies become depleted, stop fasting immediately. The following symptoms are the tell-tale signs: oversensitivity to light, nervous exhaustion, severe insomnia, excessive tiredness, difficulties when walking, not being able to drink anymore water, serious depression, a feeling of complete weakness, irregular heartbeat, etc. Mind you, if you heartbeat is too slow or too fast, but regular, there is no reason to give up the fast.
Recuperation diet (follow for 2 days) The recuperation diet should be followed for 2 days after the prolonged fast. Drink a large amount of fruit juice the following day. Afterwards eat some mangos, melons and steamed bananas.
In the evening, liquidize a lettuce and some carrots and drink slowly. Eating solid food again After the recuperation diet you should go on the (preparatory) diet again. Be careful not to eat too much starch the first few days. Don’t forget you have been fasting for 20 days and your body is not producing as much amylase, needed for the digestion of starch. This is why it is of the utmost importance to chew your food as long as possible. It is the only way of preventing digestive problems. Be sure not to eat any harmful food products such as cheese or meat. If you do, it is likely that your feet and knees will swell up. Only moderation can prevent these problems.
IN CASE OF INFECTIONS How to recover from bronchitis or pneumonia with AIDS? More than 50% of AIDS patients die of infections of the air ways. Pneumonia especially has claimed many lives. A logical question would be: what should an AIDS patient do when he has flu, bronchitis, pneumonia, or any other illness.? DO NOT EAT ANYTHING, NOT EVEN FRUIT JUICE OR VEGETABLE JUICE. The reason for this is that viruses and bacteria are able to multiply in your intestines. If you give them a nutrient (fruit juice, vegetables, bread, etc.) they are able to multiply exponentially. The only way to bring this process to a halt is complete abstinence from food. After a while your white blood cells will destroy these bacteria. How do you recover from fever and infectious diseases? 1) STOP EATING IMMEDIATELY 2) Drink 1 to 2 liters of rose hip tea a day. 3) Stay in bed; if you get up to go out or to work you are risking your life. The fever will not go down when you tire yourself. Tiredness is the biggest threat. 4) Keep yourself warm with hot water bottles. Make sure your feet are warm enough. 5) Do not read too much; television is O.K. Most importantly: measure your temperature at regular intervals! If it remains at 36.5°C for a whole day, you are allowed to stop fasting. Normally it takes up to 5 to 7 days to achieve this result. If you give up fasting when your body temperature is still 36.8 the fever will return! If the fever has still not gone down after 8 days, gradually start on the recuperation diet .
Practical example Michael, a seriously ill AIDS patient with only 80 T-4 cells and 13 thousand blood platelets did not feel well on a Saturday so he went home. The following day he had a fever. He carried on drinking fruit juice and ignored my warnings. In the evening his temperature was 39°C. The next day it had gone up to 40°C. By chance I happened to call him that afternoon. I was horrified. “But I told you not to eat anything when you had a fever!” “Yes, I know, but I've only drunk fruit juice.” I controlled my temper and tried to stay calm. “Listen Michael, if you don’t do exactly as I say you’ll be dead next week! Stop drinking fruit juice. Only drink rose hip tea. Measure your temperature three times a day and wait until it has dropped to 36.5°C. I’ll call you every day.” The following day, Tuesday, his temperature had dropped slightly to 39.5°C. Michael was suffering from terrible headaches. His feet were ice cold; he was trying to get them warm with hot water bottles, woolen socks, ... He was coughing so much it was as if his lungs were bursting. He was coughing up large amounts of phlegm when his friend phoned me in a panic. “Patrick, I think Michael is dying. I’ve never seen him this bad.” “Xavier, the attack is at its worst. There is nothing to do but wait. One thing I do know, it’s his only chance of survival and he’ll come through. The human body does not commit suicide. Only when you do something wrong, things get out of hand.” He still wasn’t convinced. “He looks like a corpse!” I tried to reassure Xavier as much as possible and in the end he was feeling confident again. On Wednesday Michel's fever was still 39°C. Thursday it had gone down slightly to 38°C and on Friday there was a marked improvement, that evening it was only 37.2°C. The following morning his body temperature had gone down to 36.2°C and in the evening it was 35.8 °C. I allowed him to drink two glasses of lettuce juice, mixed with carrot juice or celery (if he wanted). The following morning, very exceptionally, he was allowed to drink 1 liter of orange juice. For the rest he had to stick to rose hip tea and in the evening 2 to 3 glasses of vegetable juice. Starch was out of the question. If he was hungry, he was allowed some steamed bananas, one hour after drinking the juice.
Summary for the recovery from fever:
• STOP EATING IMMEDIATELY • Drink 1 to 2 liters of rose hip tea a day. • Wait until the fever has dropped to 36.5°C or less for a whole day. • Drink 2 to 3 glasses of vegetable juice that same evening. • The next morning drink approximately 1 liter of orange juice. You’re also allowed a few cups of rose hip tea. Drink 2 to 3 glasses of vegetable juice in the evening. If you’re hungry, steam some bananas and eat them approximately one hour after drinking the vegetable juice. • Then start on the diet again. Do not drink any more orange juice! It will affect your liver! Attention: If the fever has gone down to 36°C, start drinking vegetable juice immediately! If your temperature is still dropping, drink 3/4 liter of fruit juice which will raise your temperature. If you do not, your temperature could drop even further!
ILL? STOP EATING! There is an old myth which says that all that is required when you are ill is a good meal. And unfortunately, Please believe me when I tell you this is dangerous nonsense! The enzymes necessary for digestion have been put out of action and all food eaten when you are ill will ferment and rot. You can compare it to a heap of manure! It doesn’t sound very appetizing, but have you ever put a spade in a heap of manure? In that case you will know which processes take place there. Simply remember that when you eat while you are ill a nutrient is provided for bacteria and viruses. The choice is yours! RECOVERY OF INTESTINAL FLORA Several times I have already mentioned that AZT, DDI and similar "medicines" destroy intestinal flora. It is the worst fate imaginable for your body: your digestion does not function properly and the fermentation of undigested food causes serious diarrhea. When you go to the toilet, it is as if your life-energy is pouring out of you. You feel wasted and utterly exhausted! You are unable to extract the vital vitamins and building components, needed for maintaining a healthy functioning of the body. Your immunity system is in a state of collapse and you are susceptible to the worst infections... AIDS seizes its chance! The destruction of your intestinal flora is the sole cause for the outbreak of AIDS. If your intestinal flora is healthy, AIDS cannot affect you, even if you are HIV-positive! When your intestinal flora has been restored, your immunity system is able to run at full throttle again. But this requires a great deal of effort! Gradually your body starts healing itself. If you are very ill it is an incredibly slow process: sometimes it takes up to a few years. In less worse cases it will be anytime between 6 months and a year. I can assure you that it's worth the effort. Soon after going on the diet you'll already start feeling better. Your intestinal flora is being restored, your food is being digested better again and you can feel yourself getting fitter and stronger! Recovery is made possible by drinking the juice of organically grown lettuce, carrots and celery. The bacteria you extract from this vegetable juice are the key to restoring your intestinal flora. Your digestion runs smoothly again and you 're able to extract vital building components, in other words, you are on the road to recovery. AIDS-patients who have lost a great deal of weight are able to put it on again! Nearly all external AIDS-symptoms disappear and anemia is cured within a few months. Up to now it is the only known method able to claim such a success! The juice of unwashed organic vegetables alone is not enough. In order to increase your vitality, you will have to eat large amounts of fruit too. Combine your food correctly. Correct food combinations assure a good digestion because fermentation is prevented. The rotting processes, which are thus avoided, form the perfect nutrient for infections such as pneumonia, bronchitis, laryngitis, etc. An added advantage of correct food combinations is the fact that the optimal extraction of vitamins is assured. Your recovery is well underway. When you are suffering from anemia your body is in desperate need of the following vitamins: B1, B2, B6, B12, folic acid, vitamin C, E and iron minerals. Nearly all vitamin-guides recommend extra vitamins to compensate for the shortage. This is completely ludicrous: these so-called vitamin and mineral supplements are inactive and can therefore not be absorbed by your body. And to make things worse, continued usage will obstruct the absorption of natural vitamins and minerals. You will not get better, and your body is heading for a catastrophe! Only with a fruit-vegetable diet, consisting of fresh food products rich in vitamins and minerals, are you able to cure anemia completely within a few months! In short, follow the diet described in this book, for a speedy recovery. Vitamin-supplements will have no effect whatsoever!
Only by replenishing your damaged intestinal flora with identical bacteria, which can be found in the juice of unwashed organically grown lettuce, carrots and celery, can you be assured of the optimal extraction of vitamins and nutrients from your food. Proof: The first thing you notice when your intestinal flora is recovering is a normalization of your hemoglobin-level and an increase in the number of red blood cells. For AIDS patients the hemoglobin-level is an important indicator in determining how long they have to live. For a healthy person this is approximately 15 gm/dl. When it has dropped to less than 13 gm/dl and the T4-cell count has dropped below 200 you are in an extremely dangerous situation. Statistically you only have a few more months to live! All the more reason to start getting worried. The grim reaper is about to mow you down! Hemoglobin provides your cells with oxygen. A reduction in the hemoglobin-level reduces your ability to absorb oxygen. If it drops below 13 gm/dl the amount of carbon dioxide in your cells increases. All bodily processes will start working in slow motion, and a dangerous situation is developing If the number of red blood cells has also gone down, which invariably is the case for AIDS patients, a critical situation has developed. Aspirins and similar products damage hemoglobin in such a way that no oxygen is absorbed anymore. In other words these ‘innocent’ aspirins may prove to be fatal! On television I saw very ill AIDS patients who had difficulties breathing. They were literally gasping for breath. It is caused by the serious shortage of hemoglobin and red blood cells. AIDS patients who find themselves in this serious predicament should start the rehabilitation program as soon as possible. For others: prevention is better than cure! It is not the HIV-virus that destroys hemoglobin and red blood cells. This, in fact, is one of the most blatant lies in medical history. Antibiotics, AZT, DDI, etc. are unquestionably the real cause. They are your worst enemy. In a healthy man, one cubic milliliter contains approximately 5 million, in a healthy woman, 4 million. They remain active for approximately 2 months before being replaced by new ones, which are constantly being churned out by your bone marrow. Red blood cells transport oxygen from your lungs to the other cells and remove the carbon dioxide formed in them. Besides this, they provide your cells with vitamins, minerals, hormones, building components, enzymes, etc. If you have a shortage of red blood cells you are in great peril. One physical catastrophe after an other will take place: cancer, infections, wounds that won’t heal, ulcers,... In other words, if your blood is “sick”, your body will feel the effects tenfold and if the shortage of red blood cells becomes acute, you will die. Yet another victim of the AIDS + antibiotics scandal! Your only salvation... organically grown fruit and vegetables! They are the best defense and will help you get better. The speed of recovery is apparent in the hemoglobin level and the number of red blood cells in the blood analyses from an AIDS patient.
hemoglobin red blood cells
These analyses prove once more that the destruction of intestinal flora explains 90% of all AIDS symptoms. I’ll say it again: once your intestinal flora is healthy (again) AIDS cannot affect you. AIDS : The Real Theory and Therapy 1 You are infected with the HIV virus (HIV positive). 2 You catch an infection. 3 You use antibiotics. 4 The virus changes (becomes stronger). 5 You stay ill longer (more antibiotics). 6 Slight destruction of the intestinal flora.
Results of a slight destruction of the intestinal flora: 1 Slight malabsorption of vitamins and minerals. 2 Lowering of the making of vitamins B12 and K. 3 Lowering of the making of red and white blood cells. 4 You become ill easier (flu,etc), because you don’t absorb all vitamins and minerals. 5 Repeated use of antibiotics. 6 Serious destruction of the intestinal flora. Results of a serious destruction of the intestinal flora: 1 Malabsorption of all food, proteins and starches. 2 Diarrhea. 3 Malabsorption of all vitamins and minerals. 4 Making of red & white blood cells decreases strongly. 5 Inadequate making and absorption of vitamin K & B12. Vitamin K is necessary for: 1 The formation of prothrombin, a chemical required in blood clotting. 2 The conversion of glucose to glycogen. 3 Normal liver functioning. All mentioned facts are reversible! . Fruit & vegetable diet (vitamins & minerals). . Unwashed biological vegetables (they contain bacteria similar to the intestinal flora).

HUMANS ARE FRUITARIANS.
Could you imagine yourself eating live animals? This question may sound strange, but it is decisive in determining your eating habits. Several tests have been carried out to see how people react to animals being slaughtered. One of these tests goes as follows: a reporter walks into a butcher's holding a live rabbit, a piglet, a chicken, a lamb, or a partridge, depending on the test. Like all customers, he waits in line. Not before long the other customers become curious and ask him what he is doing. Dead calm he answers he has come to have the animal slaughtered. The other customers are disgusted because nobody had expected an answer like that: they tell him he is cruel, sick,...! Some even try to free the animal! Even the butcher's reaction is negative and he refuses to do it. In short, the test goes wrong (which it was supposed to), due to the opposing attitudes of the "carnivorous" by-standers'. Up to the point that some customers actually leave the butcher's without purchasing anything. They were so shocked at the idea of eating meat, at the expense of those sweet animals, they decide to skip their helping of meat for once. This is a normal reaction, because when people are confronted with the harsh reality they see how unnatural it is to eat meat. Do you long for a spare rib when you see a pig rolling in the mud? Or does your mouth start watering when you see a cow grazing in the field? No, quite the opposite. What about your insatiable craving for meat then. Where are those so-called carni- or omnivorous properties you should be feeling as a "meat-eater"? You see! The need to devour vast quantities of meat simply does not exist in humans! It is just an illusion. Only when the meat has been prepared, and you did not see anything of the process it followed, will you eat it. But if I put fresh strawberries, a delicious apricot or a juicy nectarine in front of you, you would not hesitate. Your taste buds are stimulated by this enchanting fruit. And what is more, you can eat them raw, contrary to rabbit, pork, lamb, etc. This in itself proves how unnatural meat is! Do you possess sharp claws, carnassial teeth or fangs? Of course not! Instead you use guns, knives, salt, herbs, and various cooking techniques, to make meat digestible. Strawberries or grapes on the other hand can be hand-picked in nature.
I am not a meat-eater? Of course not. Dentist Richard Lehne from Hamburg has proved this by comparing human teeth to those of animals. There is not a single tooth suitable for the consumption of meat. You do not have any dagger shaped fangs, no triangular premolars and no double-pointed crushers like carnivores’ teeth. Anyway, the fact that you chew, also proves you are not carnivorous. Carnivorous animals swallow whole chunks and don't chew. I am not omnivorous? I know that many people cannot go without their steak. Stop fooling yourself though: you are not omnivorous, otherwise your front teeth would have been like carnivores’ teeth. On the other hand you are not strictly herbivorous (a plant eater) either. In that case your teeth would have the shape and structure of horse's teeth. If you were a leaf eater, your teeth would have pointed knobs, like kangaroos’ teeth. What category do we belong to then? To a separate category! Like anthropoid apes we do not belong to any of the abovementioned categories. We come under our own category of mammals. Physiologically we could be classified as an anthropoid ape, more specifically a fruit eater (fruitarian). The physiological and anatomical similarities between man and anthropoid apes are too great to be coincidental. Gorillas and orangoutangs live mainly on fruit. Besides that they also eat young shoots, tree bark and roots. From these they extract their exceptional strength, which is twenty times greater than ours! A great deal of strength can be drawn from fruit, much more than you imagine! What are the other similarities between man, gorilla and orang-outang? These can be summarized in ten points. Next time you go to the zoo, make the comparison yourself: 1) The eyes are pointed forward. Sight is three dimensional with the possibility to distinguish colors. 2) The females' milk glands are situated at chest height (not the case with cows or cats ). 3) I know, humans do not have tails. 4) You stand upright. This is not obvious with gorillas or orang-outangs. They often move on the knuckles of their hands. 5) Your arms are reasonably moveable and you have five fingers. You can move your thumb opposite your other fingers. Compare this with gorillas, you will see they can do this too! 6) The nails of your toes and fingers are flat, just like anthropoid apes. Other animals' nails are bent. 7) Your saliva and urine are alkaline, just like anthropoid apes. 8) Four blood groups can be determined both in humans as in gorillas and orang-outangs. 9) Just as is the case for you, vitamin C is crucial in an anthropoid apes' diet. 10) You have as many teeth (32 to be exact) as your "savage counterparts".
THE POWER OF A FRUIT BREAKFAST
A fruit breakfast bears the comparison with any other breakfast imaginable! There is no doubt about that. I will prove to you the inferiority of other breakfasts. Average breakfast (example) 2 sandwiches (70 gm of whole-wheat bread) butter (10 gm) jam (15 gm) tea or coffee (1 to 2 cups + possibly some sugar) Remarks • Jam, chocolate paste, molasses, etc. cannot be considered as food products, because the cooking and preparation-process (just about) completely destroys all vitamins and minerals. If you look at the nutritional value, you will see how little vitamins and minerals they contain. • Coffee or tea do not contain any nourishing substances either. The acids in these drinks rob your body from various vitamins and minerals. They eliminate all alkaline substances (=base = minerals). It is much better only to drink spring water or fruit tea.
Discussion of the energy, vitamin and mineral content of an average breakfast kJ: + 1050 (250 kcal) Vitamins: A : 0.11 mg B1: 0.11 mg B2: 0.07 mg B3: 0.70 mg B6: 0.11 mg C : missing Mineral content: Ca: 19 mg P : 140 mg Fe: 2.1 mg Na: 350 mg K : 220 mg
Run through these vitamin and mineral contents. Look at the figures and compare them with my breakfast proposal. Once again it proves that with FRUIT you will absorb a larger amount of vitamins and minerals INCREASE YOUR INTAKE OF VITAMINS PRIMAL BREAKFAST 3 glasses of freshly squeezed orange juice
Discussion of energy , vitamin and mineral content. KJ: + 1000
Vitamins: A : 0.25 mg B1: 0.34 mg B2: 0.17 mg B3: 1.14 mg B6: 0.28 mg C : 285 mg
Mineral content: Ca: 228 mg P : 114 mg Fe: 1.7 mg Na: 11 mg K : 860 mg
When you compare both breakfast possibilities you immediately notice how much more powerful a fruit breakfast is. The vitamin B1 content for instance is three times higher. Even higher still is the vitamin C content: 285 mg compared to 0 mg. Your mental alertness will be sharper with this primal breakfast, because both vitamin B1 and C contribute considerately to brain activity. In other words: the vitamin content of your fruit breakfast has a direct influence on your psychological condition. Furthermore, orange juice does not over-stimulate your nerves, which cannot be said about coffee and tea. If we look at the mineral contents, we see that a primal breakfast exceeds a normal breakfast by far. The calcium content, in this case, is twelve times higher than with a bread meal (228 mg compared to 19 mg!) The salt content is thirty (!) times lower and the kalium content four times higher! What are you waiting for? Actually it is logical for fruit to be superior to other food products. Fruit is man's primal food source. It was and still is abundant in tropical areas, the cradle of mankind. In these places life was wonderful and our ancestors did not need extra clothing. The daily menu of our farthest ancestors consisted mainly of fruit. But when they left their original habitat and dispersed to the various continents, things started going wrong. Due to sudden climatic changes and snow and ice formation, the valuable and irreplaceable fruit was frozen and destroyed So as not to starve, these "post-primal people" were obliged to hunt animals. They also had to look for shelter and heating and make clothes due to the colder conditions. The primal biotope was gone and unnatural diets were adopted. They were obliged to eat meat, as there was nothing else. Fruit was largely omitted. Rheumatism, growths, gout, arteriosclerosis and various other diseases were the result. Why is this so important? Because I want to make it clear to you where primitive man used to live: within the (then) equator. They were perfectly happy with the biotope there. They walked around naked, ate the fruit from their natural environment and were never ill. In this paradise it was unnecessary to kill animals for food! When our primitive ancestors started working on their "future", things really started to go wrong. More specifically, when they went to look for a permanent place to live for their descendants. From his primal existence as nomad, primitive man became sedentary. He changed his "savage" live into an "organized" existence, without realizing the damage he was doing to his health.
His sense for adventure had been curbed. And his diet was put under serious pressure. Before, in his "free" existence he moved from one place to the next where fruit was abundant again. When man started leading a sedentary existence though, the immediate surroundings were devoid of fruit in no time. This meant a lack of necessary food products which meant man was obliged to apply ecologically disastrous measures. This in fact, was the beginning of the end. What do you mean by that? Pre-city dweller started sowing and cultivating which meant his diet became one-sided and unnatural, because it consisted mainly of concentrated products like grain. Fruit was steadily disappearing to the background. At the same time, humans were losing their "primal health" which was starting to degenerate. Luckily contemporary man is starting to see the error of his ways and his hunt for more is being deviated to real values like happiness, health, water, moderate sun bathing, open air activities and a NATURAL DIET. This is his only hope of escaping the maladies of "modern-day" society: stress, cancer, diabetes, heart attack, etc. Undoubtedly this will convince many to return to nature.
A longing to return to the primal biotope. When our ancestors left their primal biotope, we have been confronted with the state of the weather constantly affecting our moods. Some people become desperate, others just get angry or aggressive or are completely apathetic and passive. The tone changes from "What horrible weather!" to "I don't feel like going out because it’s raining!" A relatively large amount of people are depressed by the bad weather: "I'm bored and I don't feel like doing anything!" The weather influences us in many ways. The building sector is paralyzed when it freezes. Glaze and fog on the roads cause several accidents. The success of a trip to the coast or the mountains often depends on the weather. Even the biggest optimist can be driven to despair because of the ever changing weather. A holiday can be ruined completely. A storm can change a nice boat trip into a true via dolorosa. Trembling, dizzy and white as a sheet you stand, lay or just hang there feeling absolutely awful: if the sea were calm and sunny, the fresh sea air would have a completely different effect on you. The climate strongly affects your behavioral pattern. It determines how much time you spend at the beach or inside, or when you spend time in the woods, on the heath, in the mountains, in covered swimming pools, shops, sports-centers, restaurants, night clubs, cinemas, etc. In mild climates, and in subtropical climates, you are stimulated to go outside. You are in a natural environment, surrounded by an abundance of plants and flowers, enjoying the wonderful weather. You feel free, independent and self-assured. Looking at it from an economic point of view, a bad climate stimulates indoor activities, the building of cities, the use of cars, construction of roads, etc. This way you are arming yourself against climatic changes. Instead of swimming in the ocean in a tropical setting, you now go to a subtropical swimming pool. The number of visitors proves their necessity. They are an outlet for our primal instincts still present in our genes. The uncontrolled growth of cities has lead to gigantic deforestation and pollution. By continuing to construct artificial biotopes (cities and houses) we are destroying the earth. Hopefully man will see the errors of his ways in the near future. Once we recognize that man is fruitarian we are on the right track. Deforestation will come to an abrupt end. If you want to know more about this, read Harvey Diamond's book "Your heart, your world". In this book he recommends fruit for breakfast. A meal on board a space station in the year 2000 will look like this: Breakfast in the next century: juice of wild berries mixed with pineapple juice; finely mixed kiwi fruit and apricots, all freshly picked from the artificial primal biotope On board such biotope space ships diseases will be a thing of the past. The aromatic fruit and the wonderful flower richness will pleasantly freshen up space stations and habitation biotopes. It will remind the astronauts that fruit is in fact sublimated solar energy. If you fall back on the basic principles of nuclear physics and chemistry, this is logical, because all atoms start shaking and moving when exposed to a higher energy supply. Now do you understand why a human being, a complicated set of trillions of cells, feels so much better when he eats fruit. His cells benefit from the supply of higher energy. Future man will have to take due notice of this correlation on coming space travels. Will it always be like this? Undoubtedly. Our link with primal nature will never cease to exist. Our DNA and RNA-spirals are the best evidence for this. Human DNA is nearly identical to gorilla DNA which means the urge for fruit has already been already registered in our genes. Humans still belong to the subtropics, where they feel best at home (looking at their primal gene structures). You cannot deny it: living in cold wet climates is not easy. The link with your primal biotope incites you to eat bananas, oranges, coconuts, pineapples, etc. The annual exodus to warmer climates is further proof: your primal instinct is driving you back to your original habitat. In this subtropical climate you are able to relocate your much sought after balance. For spaceships of the future this means they will have artificial beaches, which will be irradiated with measured amounts of sunshine. Beside that, the astronauts will have mini-seas, waterfalls, gardens, plants, flowers, and last but certainly not least: an abundance of subtropical fruit. In short, a complete ecosphere, identical to the original human primal biotope. Undoubtedly this will be a permanent source of happiness for future
man. Just imagine: cosmic space transformed into our personal paradise, an abundance of fruit, swinging palms...
ACIDITY OF BLOOD
Healthy human blood is alkaline (the opposite of acid). The pH-value fluctuates between narrow margins. If the blood deviates from these ideal values, it means our body is under extreme stress or we are seriously ill. When the pH-value of our blood is lower than 7.35, scientists say we have acidosis, which does NOT mean our blood has turned ACID. What it does mean is that it is relatively more acid than the normal alkaline condition of blood. What causes this? It is caused by a shortage of minerals in our blood, solely due to wrong eating habits. SUGAR and FAT are extremely harmful. Coffee, cocoa, white bread, tinned vegetables, frozen vegetables, etc. aggravate this condition. Coffee and cocoa have a very negative effect: they extract calcium and magnesium from your blood. All these products bring the level of acidity closer to pH 7. When minerals continue to disappear from your blood and the amount of acid increases in your body, your life is in danger! For this reason it is necessary to sound the alarm as soon as possible, even when your blood turns just a bit acidic! With this we come to the crucial question: what does your diet have to include to guarantee a healthy and powerful body, with an alkaline blood level? Where can you extract the necessary substances from to protect yourself against disease? What natural products must you take to recover from your present, ill condition? The answer you already knew and is very simple: fresh fruit and fresh vegetables, because they contain large amounts of minerals! Remark: pears and apples do not contain many minerals! Exotic fruit grown (and preferably ripened) in the sun contains large amounts! When does food cause an alkaline reaction? I will explain immediately. The exact biochemical definition is the following: A FOOD SUBSTANCE CAUSES AN ALKALINE REACTION IN YOUR BODY WHEN IT POSSESSES MORE METALS THAN NON-METALS. An acid reaction is caused the other way round. An even stronger acidifying reaction is caused when metals are stolen from your body to enable digestion. This is the case with sugar and fat. The following example clarifies this. ACID FORMING COMPONENTS Best known ACIDS Phosphoric acid (H3PO4) Hydrochloric acid (H2SO4) ALKALINE FORMING COMPONENTS Best known BASES Quicklime (CaO) Bicarbonate of soda (Na2CO3)
Remark: in reality the acids and bases in your body are far more complicated. Due to the high metal content the oranges cause an alkaline reaction in your body. Can fruit and vegetables basify your blood (opposite of acid)? 99% of all fruit and nearly all vegetables basify your blood. "Won't our blood turn too alkaline then? is a logical question. No! Your blood is alkaline by nature and possesses an adjustment mechanism that diverts the possible surplus of bases, which is not possible with acids! If you only eat fruit and vegetables, the surplus of bases (metals in the form of bicarbonates and carbonates) is excreted through breathing, perspiring and urinating. This is also why acidosis which causes many diseases (for example rheumatism) disappears very soon after you go on a fruit-vegetable diet, rich in mangos, papayas, and melons. Sub-acid exotic fruit and melons soon normalize the alkaline level and it will remain the same without inclining to an extreme alkaline level. Warning: The free acids of acid fruit decrease the activity of your intestinal flora. Pineapples and lemons especially have a negative effect on your intestinal flora. Not as much of the B12 vitamin is produced, which means less folic acid is absorbed. If, for the next six months your diet consists of nothing much else beside acid fruit all day long, you may expect the following:
• • • •
very brittle nails; insomnia, nervous behavior; dry skin, brittle hair decrease in the number of red blood cells.
How can I prevent this from happening? By never going on a diet that solely consists of fruit for more than six weeks. The consumption of acid fruit also has to be curbed. Never consume more than 2 liters of acid fruit juice a day! In case of illness (bronchitis, flu, etc.) you are allowed to drink more acid fruit juice (no lemon or pineapple juice though!). The acid in the fruit rids your intestines from all bacteria. At the same time your intestinal flora can recover if you drink the juice of UNWASHED green biological vegetables, like lettuce and celery mixed with carrot juice. These contain indispensable bacteria which restore the activity of your intestines. Conclusion: • do not exaggerate with acid fruit • eat fresh unwashed green biological vegetables which restore the activity of your intestinal flora • you can eat unlimited amounts of melons because they do not contain any acids. Make abundant use of this! Remark: In incorrect combinations fruit has an acidifying effect! It is caused by: • extreme tiredness (fruit juice is allowed) • incorrect combinations • nuts. Even when you eat them at different times, nuts can interfere with the digestion of fruit, because they decrease the power of digestion. The acid residues of cocoa, cheese, meat, etc. are very difficult to excrete from your body and lead to health problems. Here is a list of the most formidable acidifiers in your diet: All grains (whole grains also) Boiled fruit Boiled vegetables Earthnuts (peanuts) Fats and oils Meat, fish, game and poultry Milk, cheese and yogurt Protein Pulses (beans , etc.) Sugar (strongest acidifier) Tea, coffee and cocoa How is that possible! How can boiled vegetables and boiled fruit also be acidifiers? The metals are deactivated by heating and only a small portion is absorbed by your body. Acidity is the consequence! Fresh vegetables steamed for a short while, do not have this negative aspect. Tinned fruit or vegetables and frozen vegetables on the other hand are very strong acidifiers! But then nearly everybody eats acidifying substances? Exactly! Nearly everybody solely eats acidifying substances! Hopefully this conclusion will raise the alarm. All the acid residues accumulate in your lymph glands and cells, drastically decreasing their effectiveness. In other words, your vitality is going downhill. Are you surprised your degenerated body is constantly being undermined by flu and other infections? What more needs to be said about "natural products"? In stores and natural food shops an endless array of acidifying products is offered, labeled as "natural". The fact is though, these products are just as unnatural and just as harmful to your health as ordinary products. World-wide thousands, not to say millions of people, are unsuspectingly walking into a very cleverly concealed trap. Credulous consumers are convinced they are buying high quality products. They’re 100% natural, aren’t they? Furthermore they are expensive, which is another guarantee. Decaffeinated coffee, defatted cocoa, goat's cheese, "natural" biscuits and cakes baked with biological flour, "biological" candy, chocolate for diabetics, etc. are just a few of the hundreds of different sorts of food substances on sale. Soya-ice cream, soy meat and other worthless products are on offer and sold.. No way whatsoever can they make you healthier. The fact is that for all those who consciously strive to a healthier diet, but do not have this information it is a true drama. Migraines, stomach and intestinal complaints, abnormal tiredness, flu, bronchitis, etc. will remain and get worse. Notwithstanding the fact they are drinking decaffeinated coffee now instead of ordinary coffee, and they have replaced white sugar by cane sugar, their health is not improving.
How is that possible? Few people know that juicy fruit should be the main component of our diet. It is the only way to regain our health. Fresh fruit is undoubtedly the best construction material for our body. They are full of minerals and enzymes that are indispensable for a powerful body. No product whatsoever comes close to these exceptional qualities, let alone to matching them! No matter what you eat, the nutritional value appears to be non-existent when compared to fresh strawberries, grapes, mangos, peaches, and all other fruit. What about whole grain products? Allow me to tell you something. I often hear people, who are on a completely "natural" diet, complain about rheumatic pains. It appears illogical and impossible! They eat whole grains and wheat, unpolished rice and soybean products. How can this cause rheumatism or gout? It goes against all logic of "natural" diet principles? Our "natural consumer" is simply the victim of his own ignorance. He does not know much about acid-base-balance for instance. Otherwise he would realize that grains have an acidifying effect on the human body. It makes the diet of "naturally oriented" people even more acidifying than the average modern day diet! Many people only start showing the first effects of nervous and muscular rheumatism after years of living on whole grains. Gout and bad blood circulation are common. If they do not convert to a predominantly fruit and vegetable diet they could die prematurely of a degenerative disease that can be directly linked to acidity of the body. Dietitians who advocate the consumption of whole grains try to hide this by saying that the particular person was too much yin or too much yan. This yin-yan philosophy is mysterious and has no scientific basis whatsoever. Only on the basis of the acid-base balance can the effects of food products on our body be biochemically tested (by looking at the quantity of metals and non-metals). It is and remains the only reliable method to see how our blood reacts, alkaline or acidic. The yin-yan method does not lead to anything. Biochemistry on the other hand is universal, in Japan, Europe, America and Russia. This explanation makes all other discussions unnecessary and is conclusive proof that fruit is superior to all other food substances!
SUGAR MAKES YOU ILL AND OLD
Minerals and vitamins are the best guarantee for a healthy body. They are found abundantly in fruit and vegetables. The cholesterol in your veins is dissolved ,cells are prevented from going cancerous, your brain can function properly, etc. In other words: they counteract the aging process, which is why fruit and vegetables are so important. They are the only sure way of preventing premature aging. It is a problem which in years to come ever younger people will have to contend with. What causes the aging process? Current chain store food has no relationship whatsoever anymore with the food from our primal biotope. Our food hardly contains any minerals anymore, notwithstanding the fact they are the building components of our body! Slowly but surely, even the strongest body will succumb to such a mineral starved diet. Compare to a house: without good cement it collapses in no time! Your body is exactly the same! A shortage of minerals does you no good at all! Just like trees succumb to acid rain, soon 80% of the population will become chronically ill due to a shortage of minerals. Only FRESH fruit and FRESH vegetables can prevent this from happening because they respond to the primal laws of dietetics. With their help your resistance is strengthened and you can start enjoying life to the fullest again. How soon can I recover? That depends on your age and diet. From the moment you provide your body with fully fledged natural products, fresh fruit and fresh vegetables, recovery is made possible. At the same time it is able excrete the large amounts of poisonous substances that have accumulated in your body due to your diet. Gradually the mineral supplies are replenished again and your body is able to regain some of its strength. You will be able to fend of all further attacks. It will not happen in a few weeks. It often takes months and months. What is the link between illness and sugar? Sugar is converted into acid that extracts minerals from your body. This process could be your downfall. You will probably think this is an exaggeration, because you do not realize it. And what the eye does not see the heart does not grieve over, you think, while eating another bar of chocolate. If you are of this opinion you consume an average of 50 kg sugar every year which, as you can imagine, is a large amount of acid! This acid is very demanding on the minerals that are the construction components of your body. Like acid rain washes away the nutrients of trees and plants, sugar ruins your alkaline blood level. Your body becomes too
"acid" and tries to secure the mineral supplies. The more they are exhausted, the more you are weakened. In your debilitated state you are an easy victim for bronchitis, ear infections or any other infectious diseases! That is nothing compared to what is happening inside you body where the destruction will continue without mercy. It is bittersweet news for consumers of sugar or soft drinks: sugar reacts with collagen, the most occurring protein in your body. It causes the collagen molecules to "combine" with each other. They become rigid and less flexible. Your arteries harden and thicken. Your tendons become rigid. Your lungs are unable to expand to their full extent. Your heart is impeded in its expandability. In short, the aging process is speeded up. Not only are your athletic achievements strongly reduced, you are gambling with the quality of your life. When you go up a flight of stairs, you will experience shortage of breath; because your lungs have hardened. Physical exercise could kill you, because the most important arteries leading to your heart have been nearly completely blocked. In other words, if you are a regular sugar consumer, you are heading to an early death. And if you did not know yet: the arteries of the average European or American have been blocked for almost 20% due to the consumption of sugar! The situation is alarming! Your appearance may not have been affected yet, internally destruction is rampant! In the end, the tentacles of the agglutinated collagen will also affect your face: in certain places the dermis will shrink and tear. In the beginning your elastic epidermis is able to take it, but due of the increasingly rigid combinations, your face will age in front of your own eyes: the first lines and wrinkles will show. As time passes and the supply of sugar is never-ending, they will become deeper. You will get bags under your eyes, your cheeks will sag. Your double chin becomes really prominent. In short, sugar does not only destroy your body, it makes you look a great deal older than you already are. If you age prematurely, the possibility of early death increases. An extensive experiment about the age of men and women and how they look, has proved that people who look younger live longer than people who look prematurely old. Unquestionably, sugar prematurely ages you. For this reason alone it should be banned completely from your diet!
BODY TEMPERATURE, DIET, FEVER AND LIFE EXPECTANCY
When you are on a diet, your body temperature drops about 1°C. This is fascinating because various conclusions can be drawn from this. Imagine going on a diet. After only one day your body temperature will have dropped 0.5 to 1°C. In other words, you need less energy to keep your body temperature up! You can easily check this yourself by taking your temperature at the same points of time over a few days before going on a diet. Normally at 7 o'clock in the morning your body temperature (rectal measurement) is 36.° C. At about 10 a.m., 37.1°C. Then it rises to 37.3°C at 1 p.m.. Until 5 p.m. there is not much change. Afterwards it will rise to 37.5°C at 7 p.m. From then onwards it slowly starts to drop. At about 10 p.m. it is down to 36.5°C. Your body temperature will drop to 36.4°C round about midnight. How high is my body temperature when I go on a diet? When you go on a diet you will notice your body temperature is not as high. You will remain 0.5 to 1°C under the abovementioned figures. Less energy is needed to keep your body "warm". In other words: your need for kilo Joules decreases, which is translated into less food. This means that when you go on a diet, it is even more difficult to lose weight because your body temperature is already so low. If you are on an almost zero calorie diet, your body temperature drops the most! From this information you can conclude that an extreme diet has no benefit at all: part of the profit is lost to your lower body temperature! A zero calorie diet or a low energy diet is not beneficial at all, and for this reason it is not recommended! In other words, a zero calorie diet is beneficial in case of fever? Bull's eye! A zero calorie diet has an incredible effect on fever. As you know, your body temperature drops 0.5 to 1°C when you go on a diet. Let us presume you are running a fever of 38.7°C. If you do not eat for a whole day, your body temperature drops 0.5 to 1°C if the disease is not too infectious. After a two day fast, the drop is even bigger. You recover quickest with no medicine whatsoever.
What if the fever remains? If your body has been so weakened by bad eating habits that the fever remains, you have to revert to fresh fruit juice after two days. You are allowed to drink a maximum of 2 to 3 liters of fruit juice. That way you will stay on a negative kilo Joules diet. The large supply of vitamins and minerals, will bring the fever down. This natural hygiene diet will enable you to recover much faster than would have been the case with antibiotics and you will feel completely revitalized! Why do I stay ill longer when I take antipyretics and antibiotics?
Your defense mechanism can only function when you are running a fever. The interleukine-1 hormone breaks down amino acids from your muscles which are used to fight the intruders. It explains aching muscles when you are running a fever. If you take antipyretics, the fever is brought down. The effectiveness of your defense mechanism is ruined though! You are suppressing the complaints, but you are lengthening the duration of the disease, which is exactly what we are trying to prevent! Do antibiotics make you even more ill? In 99% of cases. There is another snag though. When antibiotics first came onto the market they were prescribed on a massive scale. Not aware of any harm everybody used them because they were wonderful in combating flu, bronchitis or any other infectious diseases. Another breakthrough for modern medicine! And how easy for you as a consumer! The protests of natural hygienists (that in most case they were unnecessary and kept you ill for much longer) fell on deaf ears. Grand advertising campaigns made sure of that. But now, several years later, the truth is starting to dawn. And it is terrible, yes, even life-threatening. A similar thing happened with insecticides. Not many insects survived the DDT sprays. After a period of time they became resistant to them though. Up to the point that a dosage a thousand times stronger did not harm them anymore! They even lived on the poison, which was meant to destroy them! The same went on and is going on in your body. Slowly but surely, viruses and bacteria mutate in your body when you use antibiotics. Vaccinations against smallpox, cholera, etc. will also bring about mutations in your body. This course of action can only lead to disaster, worse even than the plague in the Middle Ages! The first consequences are starting to occur now. It is widely known that homosexuals and prostitutes take antibiotics on a large scale against venereal diseases. In their ravaged bodies the AIDS-virus could and still is, able to develop undisturbed. A life-threatening mutant. It is able to develop in other organisms, which also depend on antibiotics, into an innumerable amount of other mutants. With a fatal consequence. "Thanks to" antibiotics! Only by completely renouncing antibiotics and vaccinations against flu, etc. can it be brought to a halt. Antibiotics weaken your defense system to such an extent they can kill you. If you want to recover you have to make use of the ultra-strong and ultra-safe methods of natural hygiene: fresh juices and sufficient rest! All other possibilities have to be renounced.
BODY TEMPERATURE AND LIFE-EXPECTANCY In nearly all life processes very unstable molecules are released. They are know as "free radicals" Through your food, you absorb a great deal, just think about the chlorine in mains water, or sugar that is converted into one of the strongest "free radicals" in your body. Due to the activity of these molecules over the years, cellular membranes are affected, cellular structures weakened and proteins dismantled, up to the point that there are even mutations in the DNA. In other words, the aging process is the direct consequence of the havoc wreaked by these aggressive particles. Sugar produces a great deal of "free radicals" in your body, which is why sugar should be banned from your diet. Apart from sugar, fats are also an important producer of these destructive substances. Coffee, chocolate, meat, cheese and cola also produce large amounts of toxic substances. How can I protect myself against "free radicals"? If your diet consists of vitamin and mineral rich food, the "free radicals" are rendered harmless for a large part which is why fresh fruit and fresh vegetables are the key to a youthful appearance. Fresh fruit juice is an absolute "must" in your fight against the aging process! At the same time, a fruit and vegetable diet is an energy-restricted diet. Your body temperature drops by 0.5°C to 1° C. This lower body temperature indicates you are on an energy-restricted diet. A consequence of this lower body temperature is that your metabolism slows down. As fresh fruit and fresh vegetables contain abundant amounts of antioxidants, which counteract the consequences of "free radicals", less are produced and the aging process is slowed down! This explains why with an energyrestricted diet you can live up to twice as long! Does a rise in body temperature have a life-shortening effect? Undoubtedly; because it strengthens the production of "free radicals". I can already see you grabbing for your aspirins or other pills. Don’t! All these products, antibiotics too for that matter, produce "free radicals" in your body! A multiple of what is produced with fever! It is far better to let the fever run its course and to fast for one day. That way the damage is restricted to a minimum. What else can cause a rise in body temperature? I must disappoint all you avid sports-lovers now: physical activity can cause a considerable rise in body temperature. At the end of a marathon it can even be so high, that to an outsider it may look like a severe attack of fever. This also explains the mice test, (it will be explained later on) which proved that mice who received a minimum of physical exercise, lived the longest: their body temperature stayed low all day long. The mice forced to do exercise, had a higher temperature during the day, which meant more "free radicals". In other words, lazy people live longest? If they have a healthy diet and are on a hunger-diet, yes. It sounds incredible, but all tests point in that direction. The smallest effort "shortens" your life! But do not be too extreme in this. Otherwise your love-life would be non-existent. Think about it: your lips are the most sensitive and most blood-ridden part of your body. Every pressure or change in body temperature causes severe
reactions in your brain. Your arteries widen and your body temperature rises. Passionate kissing especially can make you "feverous" with love! Other excitement may also cause your temperature to rise. Stage fright is another example. This is why it is important to lead a stable life! Too much excitement will cause premature aging due to a higher body temperature!
DIET FOR MAXIMAL LIFE EXPECTANCY
I am often told I am too thin. Some people even make jokes about it. According to current standards I am undoubtedly "too thin". I stand out in a sauna and on the beach. I will not keep you in suspense any longer: I weigh 60 kg and am 6 feet tall. All skin and bones in other words. But everybody who thinks I am too skinny, is wrong! Animal tests have shown conclusively that remaining thin can double life expectancy! Instead of 100, you could live to be 200 years old! So there you go! Need I say more? But that is fantastic! That is what I think! I do not care about people who laugh at my skin and bones-body because I will outlive them all! Apart from being thin, like the test animals I also am on a maximal life-span-diet, consisting of fresh fruit and vegetable juices, so that I will be able to enjoy my pension for more than 100 years! Are you sure of that? You bet! To give you an example: I have various pension schemes running, which do not provide any payment in case of death. This does not only make them cheap, but allows me to retire as a rich man. As biologically I will be a forty year old man when I am sixty-five this extra money will come in very handy. There will be no place for "sumptuous meals", but that is outweighed by “world trips” and high virility (yes, your virility will remain unaffected up to an advanced age!), no cancer, heart attacks, etc. In short, I will be able to lead a life of luxury for several more years to come! Count yourself invited on my yacht in Saint-Tropez? And to my fruit bar on a subtropical island? What do you base that knowledge on? On research done by dr. Roy Walford from the Gerontological Laboratory of the University of California. He did several tests on rats and for this purpose divided them into 4 groups : 1) the first group was allowed to eat unlimited amounts of food 2) the second group were also allowed unlimited amounts of food but were forced to do physical exercise 3) the third group were given less food than the first two. Like group two they were forced to do physical experience. 4) the last group was put on a hunger-diet. They were not allowed to do any physical exercise though. The question now is: which group lived the longest? Few people know the correct answer. I too was so astounded by the answer, I drastically changed my lifestyle. Was the result of the test so surprising then? You bet! I used to think physical exercise was a sure way of living longer. Dr. Walford's tests proved the opposite though: group four, the rats not allowed to do any physical exercise, lived the longest! In human standards they reached the ripe old age of two hundred years! What about the other groups? Group number one, the voracious fat rats, died first. After that the rats from group two, followed by the rats in group three. I felt a bit stupid with my ideas about physical exercise. My basic assumption had always been: eat a lot of fruit and exercise your body regularly. This would increase my life-span even more then when I would only eat fruit! The contrary has been proved! Doing nothing + drinking a lot of fruit juice + going hungry can double your life-span! Once I had got over the shock I started going over the causes of this. Fairly soon a few things became clear to me. For everybody who wants to start on a hunger diet, it is very important to take the following things into account: A) tests rats which were allowed to eat as much as they wanted and were then put on a diet, died before the rats which were allowed to eat as much as they wanted B) when the conversion to a hunger-menu happened GRADUALLY life expectancy was doubled! What does this mean to us? That overweight people have to lose weight gradually. I cannot stress this enough. Quick weight loss causes such stress to your body it may even shorten your life. Only by losing weight gradually, between a period of three to eight years, can your life expectancy be increased. During this period you have to try to lose as much excess weight as possible, until your weight complies
with the standards presented in my book "Slim and Healthy". Other important conclusions drawn from the diet tests are the following: • only follow a fruit-vegetable diet. Of all food products, fruit and vegetables contain most vitamins and minerals. All other diets, and in particular milk and protein diets do not contain sufficient vitamins and minerals which is why they shorten life expectancy! • drastic dieting is inadvisable. Eating a lot, as described in my book "Slim and Healthy", is a good method. It is even better to go on a diet for 2 days and then to eat 2 to 4 days so that you do not put on nor lose weight. You can also diet for one day and then eat a bit more for two days. That way you lose weight slowly, without having to go on an extreme diet. • going on a diet and physical exercise are harmful to your body. This is why aerobics, gym, jogging and any other form of physical exercise is inadvisable when you are on a diet. Only moderate exercise like swimming, cycling and walking is permitted. If you persist in physical exercise, you must eat more! Otherwise you are heading for a serious physical catastrophe! • a restrictive diet consists of a lot of fruit and vegetables complemented with carbohydrates. Fat has to be avoided as much as possible. A similar diet may lead to infertility of women. It could be seen as an advantage of course because you do not need contraceptives. If you want to become pregnant you simply start eating again and fertility will return. Do not forget you may not go an a restrictive diet when pregnant or when breast feeding. Otherwise there is a chance your baby will not receive the necessary amounts of vitamins and minerals and that could undermine its health. • because this diet slows down the aging process, women can still become pregnant up to a very advanced age. They must have been following the diet from a very young age though. Biologically, a fifty year old woman is comparable to a thirty year old, so that even at that advanced age she can become a mother for the first time. Even for sixty year olds, motherhood would still be possible! It all sounds incredible, but within a few years nobody will doubt it anymore! How do I start on the maximal life expectancy program? Drastically, but gradually. That means that if up to now you had an unhealthy diet, you must convert immediately to the diet described in this book. It is strictly forbidden though to lose weight too rapidly or to restrict your energy intake. Both losing weight as a decrease in the amount of kilo Joules has to be gradual. For a woman who is 5 1/2 feet tall this means she has to lose weight until she weighs 50 kg or less. Only at this weight will she be able to positively influence her life-span. In my book "Slim and Healthy" the maximum values are given for both men and women, take them into account. If both man and woman go on a restrictive diet, the woman should be ten years younger than her husband at the start of the marriage. The reason for this is that women are not allowed to follow the restrictive diet when they want to become pregnant. This interruption of the diet also applies during pregnancy and the breast feeding period. If a woman wants to become pregnant twice, this will amount to a total period of approximately seven years. During this time she will not benefit from the positive effects of the diet and during this period she will age as everybody else. Her partner on the other hand has been able to maintain the diet. If there is hardly any age gap between them, in biological terms the woman will be older than the man after the pregnancies. This of course is an unpleasant situation. To prevent these biological, and the accompanying psychological problems, I cannot stress the fact that women should be ten years younger at the start of the marriage. And what if one of the partners does not want to go on a restrictive diet? If you are a woman and you refuse to go on a restrictive diet you are faced with a problem. You will have to marry a man who is at least twenty to thirty years older. Be careful! The actual age of these men may be fifty or sixty, but biologically they look like twenty five to thirty year olds! (Or older, depending on the moment they started on the restrictive diet) When you are male and do not want to go on a restrictive diet you do not need to marry an older woman. It is a biological fact that women lose their attractiveness sooner than men. On top of that, women are not allowed to go on a restrictive diet during pregnancy or the breast feeding period. That is why as a man you are always better off, especially if you are on a restrictive diet! How should athletes adapt? If you have been a fanatical sportsman like me, only a gradual decrease of sporting activity can increase your life-span. If you give it up from one day to the next, your energy consumption and intake drop too suddenly. You will achieve the same effect as the mice put on a hunger-diet: a decrease in life-expectancy. That is why you must try to decrease your activities gradually, over a period of five years, taking care only recreational sport remains. No sport at all is impossible if you are the sports-loving type of person. If you ran 9 to 12 1/2 miles a day, you can reduce this to 2 miles in five years. If you practice a sport avidly for two to three hours every day it is advisable to reduce this to half an hour. The best and least stressful sports are: • walking • cycling • swimming • light weight training • dancing For me personally this means I am gradually reducing my daily 12 1/2 miles to a ten or twenty minute jog. Hours of dancing on an evening have to be reduced to fifteen to twenty-five minutes and all other sports have to be reduced as much as possible.
What does a restrictive diet look like? There are four possibilities: • follow the restrictive diet every day • live on fresh fruit and vegetable juices for two to three days a week • by skipping a meal every day. For example, drink fresh fruit juice all through the morning, eat nothing for lunch and have a large meal for dinner. • by fasting two days a week or by skipping a meal once in a while. All four methods work. Depending on your schedule you can do with it what you like. Example: you want to go to the sauna in the evening. As heat is not good for your digestion, it is advisable not to eat anything the hours before. Have your last meal at lunch time. The rest of the day restrict yourself to drinking water. That way you kill two birds with the same stone: you are following the maximal life expectancy program and because your stomach is empty, you also prevent your food from fermenting and decomposing. Another example: let us say you are going on a long air journey or your work schedule is going to be changed. Skipping a meal or converting to fresh fruit or fruit juice is an absolute "must". It is the only way to prevent digestive problems and any other discomforts. Depending on how I feel, I use all four methods. If, let's say, I would like to go swimming, I will drink nothing but fruit juice all day. I will certainly not eat starch because this remains in the stomach for too long and will start to ferment due to the heat. If I am in a hurry, I will skip a meal. By fasting in between I am making myself "high". I must admit I had to make a huge effort to achieve this, but quite soon this new lifestyle provided me with a clear understanding of things and a pleasant (physical) feeling. I am now so geared to not eating, it has become second nature to me. In cases of stress especially, not eating helps me to get over these moods and to change it into a feeling of light-headedness and euphoria. And tell me, who is able to resist this? Two important warnings: 1) it is imperative your energy restricted diet is rich in fruit and vegetables. Otherwise you will shorten your life-span due to a shortage of vitamins and minerals! 2) a second important warning is that you must dress warm in the evening and you do not sleep in a cold environment! Don’t forget that because of the energy-restricted diet your metabolism is functioning at a slower pace, which means you are unable to maintain your body temperature in a cold environment! That is why you must make sure in cold conditions that your body temperature does not drop too much (if it is cold out do not sleep with the window open). It may also be necessary to eat more than you normally would, in order to give your metabolism extra energy. Why does an energy-restricted diet increase life expectancy? If you think about it, it is logical. Nobody has to live up to the right old age of 200. When you have become a father or a mother and your children have grown up, your biological task has been fulfilled. Your are superfluous to the further existence of the species. The fact is, you are expendable. Harsh words, but the truth. Eat well, grow up, reproduce and then die please. It is the law of nature! It doesn’t mean you have to accept it. Make it a bit more difficult on yourself! Slow down the aging process. And that of your children also! Children who have been taught not to eat too much, will continue to do so for the rest of their lives. They will not become ill as often and will live longer. It is the best legacy imaginable for your children. Do not spoil them or yourself either for that matter. Being too fat will make you tired and old quickly. Doing (and eating) everything as you see fit means you won’t live long. Abstain from certain things and you will live longer! Do not always do as you please. Restrain yourself! And don’t give up too soon! You will retain your youthful appearance much longer. This applies to your health in even stronger measures, because you cannot become ill. And in twenty years everybody will say. "Hey you look young! How do you do it" Smiling, you will be able to give the following scientific explanation: "Well, it has everything to do with an energy-restricted diet, rich in fruit!” You won’t have to starve yourself. Quite the contrary. The helpings are considerable, even in comparison with diets that contain large amounts of kilo Joules. This is because you are hardly eating fat. Only fruit, vegetables, potatoes, rice and grains are allowed. Man's primeval diet. You must stick to an energy intake between 6300 and 7560 kilo Joules (1500 to 1800 calories) a day. Nothing more. In cases of strenuous efforts you are allowed to increase your energy intake (a long walk, a long bicycle ride for example) Another condition is that you convert to this diet gradually. Perhaps over a period of a few years even.. If you comply with these conditions, you will slow down the aging process. The first thing you will notice is a 0.5 to 1°C drop in body temperature. A sure sign the aging process has slowed down. If you go even further and start studying the processes in your body, you will notice your food is no longer being converted into fat. The sugars in the fruit are converted into energy. Starch is converted into glucose, which can also be digested. The digestion of starch requires more energy than is necessary for the digestion of fruit though. In other words, fruit increases your life-span, starch does not have this effect. You will notice this yourself almost immediately when drinking fresh fruit juice; you feel light. If on the other hand you eat potatoes, rice or starch you feel tired, because your body is completely taken up with breaking down the starch. If, on top of that you eat incorrect combinations, your body must go to even more trouble to break down starch. The longer your body has to struggle with digesting food, the more is converted into fat. And the more "free radicals" are released. These reduce your life-span because they destroy cells. Correct food combinations and an energy-restricted diet make sure your food is digested correctly, without conversion into fat and the release of harmful "free
radicals". Also, the production of SOD (super oxide dismutasis), an enzyme which renders "free radicals" harmless is strongly stimulated. That way you create double effectiveness. Adding SOD or any other vitamins and minerals I strongly advise against. because they DECREASE the natural production of SOD in your body. And what is worse, they dispel all vitamins and minerals from your body. You are not protected against the negative effects of "free radicals" and you will not live as long! Only fruit and vegetable juice are able to provide your body with the necessary vitamins and minerals in a natural way! Furthermore, fresh juices counteract damage to DNA and even repair it. From all known methods, it is the most effective. This is why a fresh fruit and vegetable diet is able to cure all diseases if they have not progressed to an advanced state yet: juices repair the damaged cells. NO OTHER METHOD CAN ACHIEVE THIS. Only fresh fruit and vegetable juices can make you healthy again! What are you waiting for? Can you give an example of an energy restricted diet? This book has many examples of energy-restricted menus. Obviously the best possible digestion has been the most important consideration (so that food is not converted into fat). The amount of fat indicated in the menus, is low. It is important (for an energy-restricted diet) that this amount is not exceeded. It is better to eat more starch (potatoes, rice, light whole-wheat bread), than to increase your fat intake. The only exception is avocado, because it contains easily digestible fats. Some of these are essential, because your body needs them to function properly, like linolic acid and linolenic acid. Besides that, avocados contain large amounts of vitamins and minerals which counteract the production of "free radicals". All other fats need to be eaten in moderation, because they increase the aging process. A day in a restricted-diet could look like this: morning until midday 1 to 2 liters of fresh fruit juice + possibly fresh fruit in the evening carrot-white celery-lettuce juice wait 1 1/2 hours potatoes, rice, whole-wheat bread or other starch + slightly-starchy vegetables + non-starchy vegetables + one or two egg yolks (raw or slightly cooked) (for vitamin B12 and D). + ¼ avocado (optional) Remark: when you drink vegetable juice it is advisable only to eat steamed vegetables for dinner. Otherwise the fresh vegetables and avocado can cause fermentation. It is easy to think up various variations. It is best to eat two fruit meals a day. It is also possible to eat two starch meals a day. Or avocado with vegetables. You will find out for yourself if you study the different combinations in this book. The same principle applies for everybody though: consume as much fresh fruit as possible, preferably juice. As this diet is so simple you do not need a big kitchen. Two cooking rings and a big fruit and vegetable press are sufficient. It could not be easier. Even handier is an extractor at work, so that you are able to have fresh fruit whenever you want. The increase in energy, which will result in more work output, should be sufficient reason to allow one! It is all you need! As you see, you hardly need to cook anymore, there is no need to go to the butcher's, no queues for fresh bread at the baker's, etc. Fruit covers your basic needs which is why it should always be abundantly present. Nothing more, nothing less. A super long life means a super simple diet. Once you have converted you will not have to worry anymore about what you are going to eat. It does not only save you from a great deal of worry and work, but also time and energy. You can spend it on educating your children and grandchildren, or expressing your creativity, or learning how to dance, etc. Don’t wait too long, buy a fruit press and start on the program: fresh fruit juice on an empty stomach. It is the best way to retain your youthful appearance. Reason enough to start and to keep it up for ever... TOXEMIA A good diet is the best protection against the aging process. I must point out though that psychological tensions can counteract these positive effects. Fear, worry, internal conflicts and emotional outbursts weaken you. Over stimulation also has a debilitating effect. Too much hard work will make you nervous and weakens you. If you use up more mental and physical energy than you can recuperate or regenerate in the hours you rest, you will age even quicker. Slower, but not as slow as it could be. Excitement, fear, etc. influence the functioning of your body. The absorption of vitamins and minerals is restricted. And these make sure you live longer. The secretion of dead cells is restricted. Slowly but surely these accumulate and this will lead to intoxication of your body: TOXEMIA. Wrong habits cause TOXEMIA. Toxemia is a debilitation of your body, which means illnesses (AIDS, cancer, etc.) will affect you easier and death is not far away. Rest, sufficient sleep and fruit juice are the most potent remedies against illness and premature aging. They increase the absorption of vitamins, increase the secretion of dead cells and increase your body's resistance. It is the only way to recover and to slow down the aging process. Positive thoughts lengthen your life. This has been proved unequivocally with cancer patients. Simply by telling cancer patients they would recover, meant they lived for many more years. You can too! Simply by having utter confidence in this program you will be able to live much
longer than you ever thought possible. In the end though, TOXEMIA, the eventual poisoning of your body, will get you, but at least you will be able to give up the ghost with the happy thought that you lived for more than a century...

VITALITY ORIENTED EATING
Daily menu in the 21st century Eating according to the primal laws of nature, will make a breakthrough in the 21st century. The following schedule is from Albert Mosséri, a world-renowned health expert. Breakfast - Lunch: Wait until your hunger feeling is confirmed. Eat some fruit. Repeat this process several times. Also possible: half an avocado, steamed bananas, soaked dates, etc. 5. p.m.: raw vegetables and lettuce seasoned with oil, butter, black olives or mayonnaise without vinegar. It is also possible to drink fresh vegetable juice. 6.30 - 7 p.m.: one of the following meals: 1) Potatoes (200 gm to 1 kg). Combine correctly with vegetables (see menus) + (if so desired) a lightly fried egg yolk or raw egg yolk mixed with hot potatoes + avocado (with sterilized cream, olive oil, butter, black olives, or dried coconut if so desired) 2) Steamed vegetables (300 to 1200 gm) with a lightly fried egg yolk and if so desired with 30 gm) Gruyere cheese, or any other unfermented cheese, or salt-free cottage cheese! Dessert (30 to 40 minutes after dinner): Soaked dried bananas, dates, figs, raisins, apricots, plums or ripe boiled fresh bananas with sterilized cream. The dried fruit should be left to soak for 12 hours to make digestion easier. Remarks: 1) NEVER EAT FRESH FRUIT after dinner! One apple is sufficient to cause vigorous fermentation! It is almost certain you won’t sleep well! 2) Mosséri prefers boiled, steamed or fried bananas and soaked dried fruit for dessert. Reason: after a meal, there is a lot of water in the stomach. It improves the digestion of the fruit. In Mosséri's words: By steaming the bananas I have succeeded in eating 5 bananas twice a day without any harmful consequences. Thanks to which I feel twice as strong the following day! Quantities: • 3 to 5 steamed bananas • 5 to 15 dates • 3 to 6 figs
Preparation of bananas: * Take a saucepan, boil some water, add 4 to 6 bananas and boil over a low heat for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally, without covering. * It is also possible to prepare the bananas in a very cool oven, + 20 minutes at 100° C/ 212°F/Gas Mark 1/4 * Or leave to dry: place the peeled bananas on a plate close to a source of heat for 2 days: a heater, a radiator or the sun. Before eating the dried bananas, soak for 12 hours. 3) Do not drink. If you do, you risk fermentation and discomfort. 4) Never eat warmed up leftovers from the day before. Biologically, they have no nutritional value whatsoever. Your body will reject it and your heart-beat may increase with 10 or more beats per minute. 5) Cut the vegetables into big chunks (for example 2 to 4 chunks )
Attention: Black olives are ripe, green ones are not. That is why it is better to eat black ones. Onions: slice finely. Leave to dry (in the air) for two days. That way they will retain their taste. It will be easier to combine them with starch, though it will not be simple. Cucumbers digest easier when put into boiling water.
THE ANTI ALLERGY DIET
Oats Rye Rye flour Thickener Wheat Wheat flour Wheat starch Wheat-protein Whole-wheat bread
Many people suffer from allergies: hay fever, eczema, acne, migraine, sneezing fits, bronchitis, asthma, etc. Most of the time they are caused by incorrect combinations. Grains especially can evoke severe allergic reactions. Beside starch, most grains also contain gluten. These gluten are proteins, which among other things are responsible for the elasticity of bread. Even combined correctly the glutens in grains can cause a great deal of discomfort to allergy sensitive people. The following grain products contain gluten which should be avoided by people with allergies: Barley Barley malt Bran Bread Corn flour Corn starch Crackers Flour Oatmeal
On top of that gluten are found in large quantities in: sauces, muesli, yogurt, baby food, packet soup, spaghetti, baking powder, cookies, pudding, etc. Remark: if you eat these grains in the correct combinations, there will not be such a severe reaction. Food that does not contain gluten: rice, millet and potatoes. It is best to eat white Basmathi rice! Conclusion: for you as an allergy sufferer it is obvious that only moderate consumption of grains will bring improvement. If you do eat grains, correct combinations are vital! Warning: most allergies will only be cured when you eat nothing but fruit all morning! Remark: all children should follow this diet! Only then will they not become ill anymore! This diet is also strongly recommend to adults!

After a short period you will become aware of this yourself! Sixth day: • Mango + pear • 10 a.m.: apple + strawberries • Lunch: bunch of grapes • 5 p.m.: fresh vegetable juice • 6.30 p.m.: baked potatoes + steamed vegetables (for example kohlrabi, Chinese cabbage, carrots) + avocado (with butter, sterilized cream, dried coconut or black olives if so desired),

Remark If you have stuck to this diet, you are allowed to add combinations with light whole-wheat bread after a few months. Be very careful! At the slightest problem revert to the anti-allergy diet! It is better to follow this diet and feel revitalized, then to continue eating unhealthy food and feeling depressed. Almost 99% of the population should go on this diet! Warning Incorrect combinations with starch are the direct cause of following afflictions • • • • • • • • Asthma Bronchitis Colds Ear infections Hay fever Intestinal infections (colitis, hemorrhoids, etc.) Sinusitis Stomach ulcers, etc.

IF YOU DON'T YOU WILL DISRUPT YOUR BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL! RESULT: ALMOST IMMEDIATELY YOU WILL FEEL HUNGRY AGAIN OR DIZZY. TIME REQUIRED FOR DRINKING FRUIT JUICE 1 glass: 10 to 15 minutes 500 ml of fruit juice: minutes 1 liter of fruit juice: minutes 1 1/2 liter of fruit juice: minutes ACID FRUIT Contains many organic acids like malic acid and citric acid. Grapes contain tartaric acid for the most part. Some fruit contains small quantities of oxalic acid. Traces of salicylic acid are found in many different sorts of fruit. Salicylic acid in its natural form increases resistance.

Rose hip tea reacts as an acid and should never be drank with starch, before or after. Vitamin C is also a strong acid and should not be consumed with starch either. It could cause serious diarrhea! Vitamin C should only be mixed with fresh fruit juice! Attention: • Cranberries and red currants contain benzoic acid. Do not eat too many. • Plums contain acids that are difficult to digest. In other words, don't eat them too often • Pineapples contain large amounts of acid, which is why they also have to be eaten in moderation
SUB-ACID FRUIT They contain less acids than acid fruit. They may be eaten regularly. The chance of damage to dental enamel is much smaller. Annona Apricots Black cherries Blackberries Blue currants (vaccinium corymblosum) Blueberries, (vaccinium myrtillus) Ceriman Cherimoyas Dates (fresh) Feijoa Figs (fresh) Grapes Guanàbana Guava Jujube Loganberries Loquat Lychees Mango Mangosteen Medlars Morello cherries Mulberries Natal plum Papaya Pears Persimmon Pitaya Prickly pear (tuna) Quince Ramontchi (governor's plum) Santol Service-berry Star apple Sweet nectarines Sweet peaches Sweet plums
Attention: plums contain acids that are extremely difficult to digest, which is why they should not be eaten too often. Mirabelles (small yellow plums) and damson plums also come under this category. They can cause serious diarrhea! MELONS Melons come under a separate category (when you combine them) because they decompose quickly when not immediately digested in the stomach. If you eat them separately, melons will not cause any problems. Now you know why you have so many digestive problems when you eat melon after other food. Banana Melon Cantaloupe Casaba Melon Christmas Melon Crenshaw Melon Honey Balls Honeydew Melon Muskmelon Nutmeg Melon Persian Melon Pie Melon Watermelon
Remarks 1) Eaten twenty minutes before your meal, melons will be digested without any problem whatsoever 2) You are allowed to combine melons with sub-acid or sweet fruit.

Avoid prunes because they contain poison. If you have used them as laxatives, you’ll know what I mean. Remarks: 1) Dried fruit should not have been treated with sulfur dioxide and has to be free of added sugars. If not, they are extremely difficult to digest! 2) Dried fruit should be soaked 12 hours before being eaten! 3) Bananas are difficult to digest. Steam before combining with sweet or sub-acid fruit! 4) NEVER combine bananas with acid fruits such as oranges. Babies especially may suffer from diarrhea! 5) Figs and raisins also contain acid, which is why they do not combine very well with other dried fruit. 6) Never eat more than 50 gm of dried fruit during a meal. 7) Dried fruit ferments with other fruit. Limit the amount of dried fruit when you combine with sub-acid fruit. color of bananas green yellowish green yellow yellowish brown (ripe) brown (bad) Warning: Bananas contain toxic substances, especially when raw.

Saliva can work on the dry starch for much longer and for this reason alone it will digest better. Do not eat coarsely-ground bread either because it does not digest!

14) Acid fruit • sub-acid fruit + unsweetened whipped cream, avocado or black olives (salt-free) If you eat acid fruit sparingly (not liquidized) you are allowed to eat 1 article of acid fruit every 2 days with some sub-acid fruit. For example 1 kiwi fruit + 2 sweet apples and 1 pear. Your dental enamel will remain practically undamaged. 1 article of acid fruit every day will seriously affect your dental enamel after a few years! People with artificial dentures do not have to take note of this warning! Acid fruit juice combined with whipped cream, is more difficult to digest than the complete fruit with whipped cream. This is why I cannot give any combinations of acid fruit juice with whipped cream.

SEE BREAKFAST FRESH FRUIT OR FRESH FRUIT JUICE OR A STARCH MEAL OR A VEGETABLE MEAL
REMEMBER: HUMANS ARE FRUITARIANS.. A JUICY FRUIT MEAL IS IDEAL. IT DIGESTS MUCH BETTER THAN ANY OTHER MEAL!
For recipes: see breakfast possibilities! LUNCH Important remarks: • If you eat vegetables or starch at lunch time make sure the fruit has had at least 4 hours to digest. • NEVER drink during a meal. Always drink at least 45 minutes before! Otherwise you will have problems with your digestion. • If you ate bread in the morning DO NOT eat acid or sub-acid vegetables at lunch time! Otherwise the part of the starch that
has not yet been dismantled into glucose, will ferment! Pears, mangos, papayas and sweet apples cause the least problems after eating bread in the morning! • Large amounts of raw vegetables are difficult to digest which is why they start to ferment, so don't exaggerate! (young carrots and root vegetables digest most easily) • Light whole-wheat bread digests much better than coarsely ground whole-wheat bread. It can be combined with avocado, butter, non-starchy vegetables, slightly-starchy vegetables starch and other starch. • It is best not to eat any proteins at lunch time. They take far too long to digest. Too much fat with starch can also considerably lengthen this. For example: starch + butter + egg yolk can lengthen digestion time with up to 8 hours! Avocado digests much better, except when it contains large amounts of fibers. In that case digestion time (with starch) is about 5 to 6 hours. • It is all right to have a protein meal for lunch once in while. Do not exaggerate though, otherwise you will absorb too many proteins! Proteins are best eaten in the evenings. For recipes: see dinner possibilities. COMBINATION POSSIBILITIES WITH STARCH Biologically the following starch containing products are best combined with slightly-starchy vegetables, non-starchy vegetables and fats. Acorns Barley Barley flour Barley malt Bread Buckwheat Chestnuts° Chufanuts Coconut Cornstarch Couscous Crackers* Custard powder Flour Grain Jerusalem artichoke Knäckebrot* Macaroni Meal Millet Oatmeal Parsnips Pasta Pasta (spaghetti, lasagna, etc.) Potato flour Potatoes Pudding powder Rice Rye Salsify Semolina Sweet corn Sweet potatoes Toast Tapioca Vermicelli Water chestnut (caltrop) Wheat flour
°Always parch the chestnuts. Some are poisonous when eaten raw! *No sugar, cheese or conservatives. Non-starchy vegetables Asparagus Bamboo Shoots Broad Beans (Horse/Windsor bean)* Bush bean* Cabbages (young and sweet) Cardoon Carrot leaves Cauliflower Celeriac (leaves) Celery Celery-green Chervil Chicory (Belgian endive) Chinese cabbage Cress Curly cale, borecole Flageolets Garden herbs Green beans Green cabbage* Kohlrabi (leaves) Lamb's lettuce Nettles Oxheart, comical cabbage Pepper cress Podded peas (Mange tout)* Pumpkin (small) Red cabbage Savoy cabbage String beans/green beans* Turnip tops Mushroom (only small ones)
Dandelion leaf Endive (not bitter endives) Fennel Cauliflower leaves
Waxpod beans* White cabbage White Celery Celery cabbage
* Young pulses contain almost no starch or protein. Ripe beans do though! * Always remove the green or the leaves of the vegetables when you buy them. If you do not they will extract the minerals and the vitamins from the vegetables (for example carrot leaves) * Mushrooms contain toxic substances which is why they may cause diarrhea.

Remarks 1) Avocado has a neutral reaction. This fruit may be combined with sub-acid fruit, sweet fruit, vegetables and starch. 2) Coconuts also contain starch! This is why you may never eat coconut with acid fruit or acid vegetables! Coconut milk or cream on the other hand may be combined with acid fruit or acid vegetables! It is all right to combine coconut with sweet fruit, but not too often. Never with sub-acid or acid fruit! 3) Olive oil is the healthiest oil imaginable. Hopefully you use it as often as possible. 4) Fresh black olives contain bitter substances, which interfere with digestion! Never eat them with starch. Slightly-starchy vegetables Artichoke Beets (young) Broccoli (not bitter) sort) Celeriac Carrots Corn-on-the-cob (young) Kohlrabi Onions (young) Pumpkin (ordinary and largest Snap beans Sprouts (young) Turnip
Herbs The following herbs (dried) used in moderation can make your dishes much tastier. Basil Celery Chervil Chives Dill Fennel Mint Oregano Parsley Rosemary Sage Sweet bay
Garden cress Marjoram
Be creative in using herbs. Herbs give a new taste to everyday food. Oregano gives potatoes or bread a delicious and totally different taste. Herbs can also be used as a replacement for salt and strong spices. Use them with moderation though. Tested and approved combinations: Basil, Oregano and Sweet Bay Oregano, Thyme and Chives Dill, Chives and Basil Sage and Thyme Marjoram, Thyme and Basil Basil and Marjoram Oregano, Marjoram and Rosemary Am I also allowed to use spices? Preferably not. They may interfere with digestion due to swelling of the stomach lining. Spices also evoke a strong acid reaction, which renders starch indigestible! Pay attention with the following spices Cardamon Cayenne Pepper Cinnamon Cloves Coriander Cummin Curry Powder Ginger Jalapeño Lovage (Sea Parsley) Mace Mustard seed Nutmeg Paprika Pepper Saffron Tarragon

But because the first three combinations offer interesting and simple possibilities, I have added these too. Remark: Few herbs have been mentioned with the recipes. These can be added according to your own taste! Remember: the recipes of all the four groups can be combined with each other! For example French Fries (combination possibility I) with Fried polenta (possibility III) or Chapati (possibility IV) Sauces: The following sauces can be added to all meals from I to IV!

Lightly Fried Egg Yolk
Eggs by themselves are an extremely difficult combination to digest (fat/egg white). On top of that, the egg white is impossible to combine with starch. Egg white decomposes very quickly in your body and produces bacteria. If you have a weak constitution, eating egg white can make you very ill. The only possible alternative is a lightly fried egg yolk. egg yolk Lightly fried egg yolk can be eaten with all starch meals, for example between a sandwich. Variation: lightly fry sautéed vegetables with egg yolk I Starch • other starch + oil and fat olive oil
Remember: these examples can be combined with other starch meals. Pay attention: If you eat more than one starch containing product (for example bread + potatoes) this could cause problems for your digestion. The most concentrated starch product will ferment. Solution: • Eat starch as dry as possible. Macaroni for example is indigestible, because the amylase enzyme is not secreted in your saliva. • Chew and keep on chewing for a good digestion

SEE BREAKFAST: FRESH FRUIT OR FRESH FRUIT JUICE OR A VEGETABLE MEAL OR A STARCH MEAL OR A PROTEIN MEAL
Remarks • Make sure there is a 5 to 6 hour interval between lunch and dinner.
• If you ate bread, potatoes or any other starch for lunch do not eat acid fruit or acid vegetables for dinner! If you do, they will ferment. This is not the case if you wait 7 hours though.
PROTEIN MEALS If you become a vegetarian, you may be worried about your protein intake. My answer to that is merciless: do not worry about it! All food products contain proteins. Vegetables especially: 500 gm of vegetables contains as many proteins as a steak. Cheese easily contains 50% more proteins. But whatever you do, do not throw yourself on cheese because it is even more damaging than meat. This is mainly due to the high protein level of cheese! Often the problem is not too little protein, but too much. If you eat too much cheese, nuts, beans and grains your protein intake could be triple the amount you need! Result: after prolonged excessive consumption of beans, cheese, nuts or grains you could suffer decalcification, gout or arthrosis! Remember the following if you are a vegetarian: too many proteins from milk, cheese, yogurt or vegetables can put a serious dampener on your enjoyment of life after just a few years! So do not worry about a possible protein shortage! Quite the contrary: make sure your protein intake is not increased! The consequences are worse then a so-called protein shortage, about which there has been so much ado. Combination possibilities: these are extremely limited, due to the physiological functioning of the human body. I 1. type of protein • nonstarchy vegetables + slightly-starchy vegetables + a little fat II Cheese (50 gm) or nuts (10 to 25 gm) • acid fruit (citrus especially)
III Cheese (50 gm) or nuts (10 to 25 gm) • non-starchy vegetables + acid vegetables, fruit vegetables and irritant vegetables + slightly-starchy vegetables + a little fat
Proteins reinforce the development of AIDS and cancer. They are also the cause of profuse menstruation. Nuts Nuts consist entirely of proteins and fats. If you eat more than 30 gm a day too much ureal acid is formed. Result: rheumatism, cancer, etc. which is why it is inadvisable to eat more than 15 gm nuts (for example 7 almonds) a day. More than 30 gm is catastrophic for your health: infections, liver crises, ulcers, eczema, psoriasis, tumors, etc. What if you eat too many nuts? Headaches in the mornings, taking a long time to wake up, drowsiness, abundant and bad smelling urine, enormous sexual overexcitement, anxiety, not being able to relax or sleep, depressions, pessimism, fear, inflammation of the bladder (cystitis), constipation, tiredness. Cheeses Fermented cheeses destroy healthy bacteria in your intestines, this causes infections that affect your health.(AIDS, cancer, rheumatism, etc.). In natural medicine these are the strongest poisonous substances known! This is why you may never ever touch the following cheeses: Bleu Gruyere (hard or matured) Brie matured and hard cheeses (all sorts) Camembert Munster Cantal (hard or matured) Roquefort Goat’s cheese Saint Florentin If you eat cheese when you are infected by the AIDS-virus you run the risk of getting Kaposi’s sarcoma: the worst form of cancer imaginable. Only freshly boiled cheeses may be eaten, in small quantities (50 g/2 oz a day at the most). Make sure they are salt-free though. Babybel Gruyere (young) Cantal (young) Saint Paulin Comté Tomme Dutch cheeses White cheeses Gouda Egg white Is extremely bad for your health. Allowed once in a while (in the correct combinations with non-starchy vegetables or slightlystarchy vegetables). In case of incorrect combinations egg white is dismantled into very strong toxic substances! After eating bread with an omelet you are more likely to get flu, bronchitis, sinusitis. Never eat more than 2 egg yolks a day. Meat and fish Everybody knows about the dangers of meat and fish. Never eat more than 50 gm meat or fish. In incorrect combinations with starch, meat, ham or fish are disastrous for your digestion. They will not give you extra power. Only in combination with non-starchy vegetables and slightly-starchy vegetables can these protein-rich products be digested (reasonably well). (be careful though: in case of incorrect combinations proteins will decompose in your body). PROTEINS Cause an acid reaction in your stomach which is why they may not or only very seldomly be combined with starch. They can be subdivided into two categories: vegetable and animal proteins.
