Transitional Detoxifying Routine
Drs. Robert and Elizabeth McCarter
Transition Phase (Fruit-Juice Diet)
Out of bed Stretching exercises. Enema (optional for
those who don't like enemas). Lukewarm shower or bath.
cup of herb tea (your choice). Warm, not hot. You may flavor your
tea with one teaspoon of honey, if desired. Use pure water.
walk or some other form of exercise, such as calisthenics, swimming
horseback riding, tennis, etc. Change your exercise routine regularly
so that different muscles are used.
8 ounce glass of fresh fruit juice, preferably grape,
apple, or orange, diluted half and half with pure water. Always
dilute fruit juices in this manner so as to avoid calcium loss.
Dish of fruit in season, as much as you like. Eat only one kind
of fruit at a time. Do not mix foods at this stage of recovery.
fresh fruits are always preferable to dried fruits. However, in
certain areas it may be difficult to obtain fresh fruits during
the winter season. In this case, use dried fruit. Just soak overnight
in pure water to cover. Do not cook. Such fruits are delicious and
need no sugar. Purchase only unsulphured dried fruits at your health
food store. They usually carry a wide assortment.
Exercise period. Fifteen minutes. (See exercise section to follow)
8-ounce glass of undiluted fresh carrot juice or carrot and celery
juice. (Or diluted fruit juice, apple or grape only)
here for quality juicers.]
Rest period in bed. Lie prone and relax even if you can't sleep.
Dish of fruit, as much as you like. Choose fruit which you did not
have at noon. One kind only.
Enema followed by lukewarm shower or bath.
glass of fresh undiluted carrot (or grape) juice. Bedtime.
Pleasant dreams. (Note: if you use grape juice, be sure to dilute
it 50-50 with pure water.)
foregoing regime is often called a modified or partial fast. This
is not strictly correct. The word 'fast' implied total abstinence
from food, the individual having recourse only to pure water. Quicker
results can usually be obtained from a total fast with complete
bed rest, using only pure water as needed. Our transition regimen
should correctly be called a juice-fruit diet and excellent results
will be forthcoming if it is faithfully followed. Severe cases,
of course, should go on a complete fast, but only under the supervision
of an experienced practitioner and in an institution away from disturbances
of any kind.
juice-fruit diet you will probably have no need for additional liquid.
