Dr. Randolph Stone’s Liver Flush And Purfying Diet*
The Liver Flush which should be done for 10-14 days in a row.
* You should first consult your health care practitioner before starting this, or any, diet. This is not appropriate if you are pregnant, nursing or taking medications.
First thing in the morning:
- 2 -3 Tbsp. pure, cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, almond oil or sesame oil.
- 4-6 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon, or lime juice
- Juice of one grapefruit or 1-2 oranges
- 1-3 cloves of crushed fresh garlic
- A pinch of cayenne powder if desired
Blend all of the above together (a blender makes it creamy and smooth) and drink.
Rid mouth of garlic taste – chew seeds of citrus fruit well or chew parsley or fresh mint leaves, cardamom, or cloves.
Follow immediately with 1-2 cups of hot tea made with:
4 tsp of Dr. Stone Herbal Mixture and ½ finger (about one eighth inch) of fresh organic ginger root sliced into 6-7 pieces
Heat 1½ pints of water with ginger root in it to boiling. Boil for 3 minutes
Pour over herbal mixture and let steep for 10-15 minutes
Drink hot without honey for the morning cups
NOTE: You can make your own herbal mixture with the following ingredients: One Tbsp. each of fenugreek, fennel, flax seed, comfrey, and peppermint leaf.
NO sweeteners for at least two hours after the flush. Then you may drink as many cups of the tea during the day as possible, with honey if desired.
1-2 hours later: Have some fresh citrus (oranges or grapefruit or their juice) or some fresh vegetable juice (mixture of carrot, cabbage, celery, beet, etc.); or you may breakfast on fresh fruit (apples, pears, apricots, grapes, etc.)
Mid-morning: If hungry, drink fresh vegetable or fruit juice or eat a grapefruit.
