Cleaning the inside of the body
The people reading the book are likely on a raw food diet or interested in one. For such people, there are some claims that may be surprising:
– A raw food diet is not good for somebody with intestinal toxemia – in such people it will tend to create a lot of gas.
– People with intestinal problems should take a lactobacillus culture for one month, three times a year. One way to do this would be to drink milk.
– Though drinking milk might help, it should not be pasteurised. Pasteurised milk leads to joint stiffness, amongst other problems.
Outside of the book, I found something interesting that goes contrary to many places offering a colonic cleansing regimen. Such places often give guests a regimen of psyllium husk and bentonite clay together. The combination causes material in the colon to be very dark when excreted from the body. A lot of people think that this is old matter finally being released from the body, but it in fact could continue as long as the person intakes psyllium husk, bentonite clay, and regular foods together. The book does recommend those items, but talks more about the other things found in waste rather than simply the color.
The diagrams for giving yourself colemas in the book do not appear to be quite the same as on colonic retreats. The pictures show a board resting on a toilet. The person getting a colema would lay on that board. The aparatus that gets stuck in the behind is only inserted three inches.
But I’d imagine many toilets would break under pressure. The author doesn’t talk about that, but he does discuss quite a few problems with the western style toilet. Apparently studies have been done that show the squat toilet is more effective every time for getting rid of waste. The western-style toilet also does not support the bowels, causing distortion and the apparent buildup of waste in places it should not be building up. The given solution, if one has to use the western style toilet, is to hold the hands above the head or on something so you are not resting on the toilet seat. I am glad that at least some people agree with me about the superiority of the squat toilet.
Other tips for good health according to the book:
– When you feel the need to use the toilet, do so. It prevents a variety of problems from happening in the future.
– Eat only when you have the desire to eat the plainest food.
– Do not eat beyond your needs.
– Don’t eat if you are upset, too cold, too hot, in pain, or are ill.
– Chew food completely.
– Skin brush daily (skin is one of the five elimination organs).
– Do not smoke or drink alcohol.
– Exercise daily.
– Don’t have stress. Stress in dogs and cats have been shown in studies to cause bowel function to stop until the thing causing stress is discontinued.
