Note to readers:  I've been updating/streamlining this quite a lot lately (8/5/18) particularly, the prologue.  You might want to review the  first part to catch up on any new format information.  Oh, and hello to all my loyal readers!  Thanks-  Ron.  

Well, here you are,  whatever, here you are.  I mean One-Eyed  Jade Bird, what the heck is this?   If you are seeking insight into health,  nutrition,  detoxification, and holistic wellness,  you are exactly in the right place!  What I'm going to tell you about is both extraordinary and challenging.

Whatever your current diet or past habits,  you will find my program profoundly healing, cleansing, and detoxifying.  If what you find here is something you want to engage in, then you will be rereading it and you probably will find taking notes will help you to organize and implement the procedures.  

In regards to that, beyond the verbiage, the program, meals, tea, zeolite and supplements are really quite easy to form into routines and become nearly effortless after a short time.  So let's get through the information, note the components, and not get intimidated.  It's actually quite simple to follow after you get the basics.   You make a big salad for lunch or dinner, eat your spinach,  make/drink a lot of special tea, and drink filtered water with zeolite.  Take your supplements...
This is a nonprofit informational site that is my resource to share with you many ways to  attain your desire for a healthy life.  Before I get into the main body of this presentation, I want to feature some items that you would most likely find very effective in attaining  your wellness goals.  

I am providing this information for educational purposes only- I am not trying to diagnose or cure or in any way trying to ignore legal prohibitions from doing so.  My advice is to research my suggestions, decide for yourself, and discuss with your health care professional any dietary or life changes to determine if they are compatible with any medications,  or whatever is presenting in your life.  I am advised to write this statement.

I'm making a primary assumption that you have been eating a typical American diet and are probably 'unhealthy' as a result...  Thus, much of what follows is to repair and remediate that very fact!

As I begin this presentation please let me caution you from trying to integrate my program with others.  If you have particular supplements you are currently into, these probably work with me but pay attention to my recommendations about those.  There are some initial and ongoing costs that accrue about some of the products I recommend, either one time or repeated.  Yet please note that these costs are significantly defrayed by the fact that the  basic diet is really quite inexpensive, probably much less than normal for you. 

To get a head start on enhancing your present health status please consider jumping to the 'Healthy Habits' page and scroll down to the part about Pau D'arco and Yerba Mate.  If you are able, please act on the advice there along with the information about Zeolite,  Aerobic Life Mag O7, and the Aquaspace devices discussed below!  You may begin to use these right away as you work on the diet or not.  This combination is a very powerful protocol all by itself!  And please don't discount the Navage nasal device discussed in Healthy habits as well.  It's does much more than you'd think! If you can afford these items you will greatly assist the program's progress in a dramatic way.

Do not use the teas or engage in this program while pregnant. 

 If you are using anticoagulants such as Warfarin or more than a baby aspirin, Pau D'arco, a blood thinner,  probably isn't for you.  You might be able to handle 1 tbsp. to 4 cups and then drink 2-3 cups spread out over the day.  Discuss with your doctor or pharmacist.  Perhaps, 1-3 cups could be tolerated this way. The same precaution could apply to the use of vinpocetine, ginkgo biloba, bacopa, and beet root powder mentioned later in the text.

Friends, you are being deceived and I hope you will read what follows with an open mind.  Literally millions and millions of dollars are spent annually to maintain the current health and nutrition model, and the disinformation to maintain this fiction.   All to support the multi billion even trillion dollar interests that like it that way.  And to keep what I'm about to reveal to you suppressed and to doubt this information.

To fully grasp the essentials of this system, it is necessary to the basic science.

Well the first thing I'd like to say is that probably most of what you know about food and nutrition is wrong or distorted.  What you call 'hunger' is more likely related to withdrawal symptoms from sugar or food additives that commercial interests have concealed in what you eat.  Did you know that sugar has been shown to be more addictive than cocaine in studies.  Likewise many substances legally described as 'salts,' 'spices,' or 'natural flavors' have been proven to affect certain areas of the brain- to have addictive properties as powerful or more so than heroin, tobacco, meth, and opiates.  These chemicals stimulate the brain to produce endocrine and hormone responses mirroring  actual feelings  identical to the pleasure experience  of extreme joy and orgasmic sex!  These chemicals are covertly concealed in the foods you eat.  And you've been eating this way since childhood but don't blame your parents.  So were they and they didn't know either. 

The government won't tell you that as they are in the pockets of the wealthy special interests that pay for their re-election costs (called 'lobbying') - The food producers won't tell you that, after all sales rules the game there, beat the competition!- the chemical additive companies won't tell you that, truth be known they'd be out of business and probably in prison- the pharmaceutical corporations won't tell you this because most all they sell is derived from this deception- your doctor won't tell you that because these chemicals are seriously detrimental to your health and  that produces clients and makes them rich- the 'diet' industry won't tell you this for sales depends on you being a dupe- and the FDA won't because they get multi-million dollar jobs when they move on so-  they hide this hugely profitable industry secret!  So there you are an addict and you don't even know it!  Well, I'll tell you about it and though it's suppressed and you have to dig- if you google the topic you can find actual scientific studies that do validate this. 

 So you don't have to take my word alone.  

To further this I have to say that after you consume these additives and pesticides they don't just 'burn up' when you eat them.  They are chemicals and don't get 'metabolized.'  They circulate in your blood stream.  Then what isn't peed out becomes embedded in your fat and tissues.  To repeat. The body doesn't metabolize these because they are 'inorganic' like lead and mercury or even gravel.  What it can't eliminate in the bathroom in your business there is toxic.  Because the body can't remove all these chemicals as fast as you ingest them it seeks another option.  The best your body can do is surround these unnatural chemicals in fatty proteins and store them in the body to protect your health.  Just to insulate you from these highly toxic alien chemicals.  If you are overweight or have a problem losing fat this is most likely the exact reason.  

 Hence as your body seriously begins to house clean while you are doing my program, the fats are dissolved and these noxious, toxic chemicals re-emerge into the blood.  That's why it's important to drink plenty of water to wash it out and why I recommend the zeolite in a few paragraphs, the Pau D'arco tea, and the bowl of spinach for dinner.  This also is the insidious reason why you fail in your 'diets.' You aren't failing to do so because  you are suffering from 'calorie' deprivation.' You are being overwhelmed by the release of these chemicals back into circulation as a result of fats dissolving.  This healthy action unfortunately and, unknown to you, releases these powerful hidden chemical trigger substances that re-stimulate those specific food cravings!  This is the reason many people yo-yo.  And you have to be aware that this will continue to be a problem until you clean these toxic substances out.

Another thing is that as you pursue my protocol, besides the strong cravings, you may experience uncomfortable feelings as well.  This is from the substances returning into circulation. Nervousness, anxiety, low or high energy periods, headaches and such are possible, though they should pass quickly as the toxins leave.  So don't freak out- this is normal for some and not evidence that you are doing the wrong thing. Rather it's evidence that the plan is working.  Just keep going. 

There is a reason why the basic program doesn't provide more calories and is composed the way it is.  The reason is  that it forces the body to metabolize stored fats and clean out cellular tissues.  This pushes the toxins into the bloodstream where they can be moved out and eliminated.  This is a necessary and essential action!  If you eat more, then the body will live on the extra calories and stop the elimination process from activating.  Hence the process is blocked and you will not succeed in detoxification and elimination. 

Please resist having random 'snacks' between meals.  So-called 'snack' foods are prime examples of items  not to eat!  They will sabotage your success with the program.  Instead train yourself to drink the teas, zeolite or clean filtered water.  These will help you in every way! 

So how long does it take? Well, you always have to be on guard- let me be clear on that.  To be up front it mostly depends on your dietary history, where you are now and your 'psychology.'  Normally a leaner individual will progress more swiftly, less fat and gunk to remove.   The heavier person will typically take longer and will probably have more crave driven chemicals to deal with.  Yet there is this-  how closely are you following the program without 'cheating?'  And there is simply the fact that some people cope with cravings better or not or are more motivated to do this and that strengthens their resolve. For the overweight you should know that rapid fat loss is a feature of this system and that should be good news- though if you revert to old habits, back comes the fat. 

Hence, how long is a  unique individual equation. Therefore, all I can say is it takes time, at least a several weeks, a few months,  perhaps longer.  A good thing you'll find is that the cleaner you get, it becomes much easier as the addictive chemicals depart.  And your 'hunger' shrinks to what is natural, you'll want to eat less- even  your salad will seem too much and a poached egg seems adequate.  Really!

So when can you expand the menu? Do you still have excess fat and strong cravings?  Then you are still eliminating a lot of toxins.  If you do decide to add some other clean items you'll slow the process down.  But if you stick within my suggestions and are moderate and consistent you will make headway.  So listen to yourself and modify it to include other suggestions as they 'feel' right.  I'm not going to be a drill sergeant here.  Just make sure you do a thorough cleansing- don't rush past that! Then by eating thoughtfully you won't be poisoning yourself and life will be quite different, liberated, addiction free.  It's truly amazing!

Back to where I was...    

So is it a wonder that, like a clock, you 'have to eat.'  Is there a 'craving' you have to indulge in?  The probability is it's because the producer of this item has hidden covert ingredients that literally make you a slave to that craving.  The real bummer is the food and these chemicals are not healthy for you- yet you really have to eat it!  Like is a Dorito a food or something  else? Why do they do this?  The answer is simple- profit.  The more you buy this stuff the more money they make.  

It's may be a sick joke like the bogus thing they call 'The Food Pyramid,' but is the next 'food group' going to be Doritos, Digiorno frozen pizza, Reser's peanut cups, and Little Debbies?  If the Big Money has it's way- it's only a matter of time... 

The body is a wonderful and amazing thing!  Just as it can be fooled and conditioned to eat wrong it can be trained to overcome this and achieve it's intended condition.   Doing this, claiming health and wellness  these days with the nature of foods and forces allied against you,  is probably one of the most difficult goals you will ever attain!  There is a way and getting there is what I wish to help you with and I won't charge you a penny for anything and only wish you success. 

Now I don't want to lead you on and say it's easy or that you will not have to fight.  It's not going to be comfortable for most and it's in many ways a one day at a time thing.  If you ever quit smoking?  It can be like that. If you need moral support about all I can offer is stay with the principals- The Meal Plan, Filtered Water/Tea ,  Aerobic Life Mag O7, Spinach, and Zeolite.  These are your 5 pillars to success!  The supplements, particularly the minerals- zinc, selenium, iodine, and magnesium, and other items are strong supporting actors in the story.  

Stay strong and often some herbal tea or a glass of good cold water may get you past a crisis moment.  That and reread the first part of this presentation and know that if you fall one day, don't beat yourself up, just  get up the next day and keep to the program or maybe strategize by doing the salad and a light meal of foods I suggest later.  Whatever it takes- I'm not here to judge you, OK? 

There is this truth I've found.  Every time you break with the program and 'cheat' and indulge, your progress comes to a stop and it takes 2-3 days to get back to where you left off.  So that's the up front cost.  If you can't hold to the main program and you include a strict adherence to my other suggestions and don't fall into old habits you will make progress over time with less stress.  But if you start this way you may find the will to tighten it up and see much more rapid results and positive health gains!  Just saying...  you won't get anywhere if you don't put in the effort and try!  I've given you the road map and it's not that tough once you get into it.   Large or small, new changes can feel  a bit strange at first...     

To begin with I want to give you the core healing, detox and weight loss program.  If you can manage it, and it's crucial to your success- this is the  basic daily meal-  A large salad (BIG bowl) of finely chopped organic lettuces- (I like 'Organics' Half and Half or SuperGreens) with broccoli/alfalfa sprouts, 2 tbsps. raw organic 'unsalted'  sunflower seeds, a moderate amount of croutons (optional), some parmesan cheese (optional),  no other cheese, chopped tomato/cucumber/1/2 an avocado (if you do the avocado don't add the sunflower seeds) or such as you like, 2 tbsps extra virgin cold pressed olive oil with 2 tbsps organic raw apple cider vinegar for dressing.  This is the basic meal.  Don't let it's apparent simplicity fool you.

If your day includes a lot of physical labor or activity you may consider adding with the salad, a hard-boiled organic egg, or a small amount of walnuts ( a small handful max.), or 4-6 oz. of baked, skinned organic chicken breast/thigh.  If you do, then eliminate the sunflower seeds from the salad. If you work hard. 

I digress for a moment.  Notice that I insist on oil and vinegar for your dressing!  That's because it's healthy and works with what we are doing.  Commercial and other dressings are problematic.  They, too, use powerful artificial flavor enhancers to hook you to the taste and the masked hidden ingredients to addict you, just like in the other foods.  Hence you'll end up defeating the program by slathering all that good salad with this high calorie toxic crap that has no nutritional value!  So stay away from these even though you have some strong preferences.  Got it?  

For breakfast I have an organic poached egg with my supplements and a small amount of low fat yogurt.  

For dinner I have and Strongly recommend daily a large bowl of boiled spinach with some raw Apple cider vinegar (this is not just a suggestion but a vital part of the system)... add a small bowl of low fat yogurt yogurt.  If you have hard physical work or activities you can add an egg or maybe 4-6 oz. of baked, skinned organic chicken. If not so active, this will slow your progress and effectiveness...  if you need more protein,  OK.  Your choice and maybe this will keep you going.  Whatever.  

The spinach is essential!  It gives you a meal and much more.  It scrubs your intestinal walls, gathers and removes toxic wastes  and provides probably one of the very finest sources of fibre to produce necessary bowl movements!  And you must keep these movements going- the gunk in there must exit!  Just like clean water/tea, and zeolite becomes pee to  flush the bloodstream of these chemicals, you feces are full of them too.  Got to have good movements daily.

Oddly, I find that frozen spinach is much better than fresh for this- don't know why.  But since we want the best bulk, easy movements,  and intestinal scrubbing action effectiveness  here, then go this way!   And it's covienient. Please don't neglect this or downplay how important it is to do!

I know that this is  somewhat embarrassing but it is a fundamental  part of this system.  Actually to me what you are accomplishing here without surgery is simply profound.  You have to get these substances out of you and pee, poop, and sweat is the way out.  If you don't help this process they will not leave, they will accumulate in your blood, not depart efficiently, or be stored again, and cause you unnecessary distress and discomfort.  Maybe cause you to crash  and eat something you 'crave.'  The water, zeolite, tea, and spinach gives you muscles where you need it! Also a good shower daily late in the day to wash what the body is eliminating through the pores in your skin.    Seriously, there is a an amazing amount of these very toxic 'salts,' additives, toxic gases, and micro crud being pushed out this way.  If you don't wash it off it'll be reabsorbed back into circulation so  pay close attention to this! 

Just know that the suggestions for plenty of clean water,  zeolite,  tea, Mag O7, and large daily bowl of spinach are very special allies- like Super Friends!  They will help in many ways to give you the very best support to accomplish your healing goal!  And make it a much more efficient, effective, and tolerable experience.

To expand about water, of course you are using the filter and micro clustering device I recommend below and you refrigerate that.  And you are drinking several glasses of the water, tea and zeolite daily to flush the toxins out with your pee.  Now this can be a little boring, even though the filtered water is tasty and refreshing.  But you can make this even of a kind of treat, a natural 'cocktail' hour, lol.  What you do is enjoy this moment.  Fill your glass with (filtered water) ice cubes and add your chilled filtered water or tea.  Next squeeze in a nice segment of fresh lemon. Drink slowly and enjoy.

On the subject of water or tea,  transport and storage is important to examine here.  Your commercial 'bottled' water uses a bad plastic.   You want plastic containers that are BPA certified not to contaminate your  freshly filtered and micro-clustered water/teas.  A stainless steel travel mug or thermos works well for the teas or water.  Glass works as in a used glass jar (tight lid) for the zeolite which should be transported in glass only.  Other choices that work well, especially for travelling or road trips, are available at Amazon.  The Nalgene Tritan 1 pint wide mouth BPA free bottle ($9+) is a handy size if you prefer this 'wide mouth' they have larger options- the MoYo Natural Labs 32 oz. refillable bottle (2 for $14) squirtable- is very handy for a day's worth of Pau D'arco tea. 

So while about town have the tea in your travel mug or Nalgene as a 'sport' container.  On a road trip why not take 32 oz. of the Pau D'arco tea, a jar  with zeolite and some walnuts, sunflower seeds and organic apples to snack on.  Maybe stop at a place that has a good salad bar for lunch or a healthy burrito(a compromise- avoid the dressings and such). Thus, you make the best of it and actually are doing some good  things on the way.  A practical solution and better than your your typical fast and junk food for sure! 

A note.  Please keep your containers clean with thin long handled scrub brush and soapy water and  a quick distilled white vinegar or chlorine rinse to keep it nicely sterile. (available at Amazon- 17" long bottle cleaning brush). Rinse these out with clear tap water. It's only smart...    

I like a piece of citrus fruit, bing cherries in season, or some melon slices in the AM and/or the afternoon.  Avoid bananas and dried fruits. Please resist eating more fruit or fruit juices.  The fruit will make your program too aggressive and thereby unpleasant.  The fruit juices have too much fruit sugars and will upset your insulin factors.  I know this is counter-intuitive but trust me on this.

A little more on this.  I like to have a grapefruit daily.  But rather than slice it in half and scooping it out I do it this way.  I peel the yellow skin, saving as much of the white stuff as I can.  Then I cut it in half and cut the halves into 3 segments.  This way you don't throw away the white stuff, a rich source of bioflavonoids, or the fiber membrane which is excellent intestinal bulk. 

 I wish to ask you not to use a microwave to heat or reheat water/tea or foods.  The microwaves alter and disrupt the nature of  fluids and  organic material, virtually rendering the product unworthy of consumption.  This is not a healthy way to treat these items.    Please do not do this!

You can have the salad for lunch or dinner- whatever works for you.  Have the spinach for the other meal.  You could take the salad in a tightly sealed container or large zip-lock bag, squeeze out extra air, place in cooler with ice, should keep it reasonably fresh then refrigerate at work? Most jobs give you access to a hot plate, not  microwave please, so you can heat up the spinach- a little bottle of 'oil and vinegar dressing,' the extra protein if  that applies to  compensate for a heavy workload, and there you are.  Add your combo-herbal tea or Pau D'arco tea,  or your clean filtered water.  

It's best if you keep to this faithfully as the body adopts a specific metabolic 'mode,'  and if you depart even for a meal, well the body has to reboot.  It'll take 2-3 days to get back where you were.  But if you crash and indulge try not to often- not more than once every 7-10 days,  though the longer you don't the better the results.  You don't have to-  you may enjoy the tastes but you may notice that you feel kind of crummy, too.  Over time you should be able to continue without falling.   And you may struggle to get back to the program as the siren call of past addictive cravings are insidious and work to sabotage your decision to heal- so be prepared.  

May seem kind of tough but you will really notice benefits over time!  As you feel better and arrive at a healthier weight and body then you may consider if you wish to add other items I suggest and transition.  Make sure reach your goal- so do a thorough cleaning first.  And just remember that this is a great basic formula to hold to.

 Now this 'formula' is the best I've come up with  to reach your goal safely and effectively.  It's been carefully designed over years of development.  You should realize that these things you are removing are seriously negative substances and you have to work carefully with your body's natural healing systems.  Actually this system  is gentle compared to some approaches. And you do get a very tasty, nutritious, and healthy meal that powerfully sustains as well as  facilitates what you are asking from your metabolism.  

Yet I'm aware that for my 'normal' reader and where you probably are coming from this may seem unreasonably difficult.  If you can handle it this is the way to go- after all you are engaged in cellular micro-surgery at the molecular level to remove these elements.  There isn't a pill that'll save you.  Still, I do give you some room to adjust if this is just too tough.  I don't want you to fail.  I'm fully aware of just how very challenging this will be for you.    

So read on and note how you might be able to integrate the information I present as we continue this dialogue.   I emphasize and I know what it's like to do this.  So it may be slower but if you need, take smaller steps- yet keep moving forward.  It becomes something wonderful when you comprehend what a gift you are giving yourself...  

It's important to drink plenty of clean, filtered water/tea, and eat the spinach to have regular bowl movements.  (I don't recommend Pur, Brita and such commercial water filtration products.  They are a joke.  Read on and I give you a much superior filter and micro-clustering solution!) 

You will experience strong cravings and desires for particular foods (particularly  processed ones- probably your favorites).  That's because as you extract them from your tissues, your body is flushing these back into your bloodstream for elimination. While back in circulation  they will reactivate your 'cravings,'- your addiction withdrawal response.  The tea, water, and zeolite (below) can help you here!  Likewise, the spinach will keep the bowels moving the gunk out as you poop.  The fluids will move the gunk out as you pee. Know this and try to resist the cravings- it can be very rough at first but hopefully this knowledge will help empower you.  Know that these cravings get less after a while and aren't so overwhelming.

As a last point to reiterate, the food industry has been working in secret labs to develop highly addictive chemical 'additives' that they and allied interests have successfully lobbied (bribed?) the FDA to certify safe for consumption (they are not!).  Without your knowledge or permission they conceal these in most of the foods you eat, particularly as in 'spicy, salty, and sweet' processed foods.  The strong enticing flavors are the mask they fool you with.  So you unknowingly become dependent on the sneaky combination of tastes and hidden additives.  Got to have Doritos, cookies, frozen pizza, sugary cereals? Even meats are loaded with hormones and antibiotics.  They don't even  have to list the actual chemical by FDA decree and believe me you would be amazed at even how they are spelled- like 20 letters that are totally like a foreign language.  So let's move on with that reality in mind and get well! 

As a final note you will notice that my basic plan does not include animal protein.  Because of this I highly recommend NOW sublingual B-12 1000 mcgs. once daily to compensate for this.  It is readily and reasonably priced at Amazon.  This is good advice for vegetarians. Actually, this is an excellent product for whatever you are currently doing!  

  Friends, doctor's, others will possibly  think you are nuts or even try to intervene.  To help here,  for instance, when you are having a meal out with friends, have a Chef's salad or some such.  Stick with the oil and vinegar dressing! It won't freak them out and it's not to far from the program.  If you are at another restaurant seek out the best option and enjoy. You would be wise basically to keep this to yourself and even accept that  your physician will get on your case because he's not going to like it.  Tell him you are basically going vegetarian- that'll puzzle him and since he's mostly ignorant of nutrition anyway he will be less likely to attack and ridicule you. Be brave my warrior friend!

Still  though they may scoff your attempts to heal naturally there are real possibilities that some of these suggestions may impact any prescriptions or conditions that you have and thus, monitoring/modifying doses could be a consideration.  This is particularly true if you are on blood thinners,  have kidney or liver disease, are diabetic, or are taking medications for high blood pressure.   Use your common sense.  My hope is that, over time your symptoms improve, and you may be able to reduce or move off pharmaceuticals altogether, resolve these issues, and eventually be naturally strong and healthy.
It's important for me to say that my perception is that the nutritional information one encounters out there is for the most part based on opinion and commercially generated mythology.  Dietetic "science" has largely been co-opted by powerful forces in the food and medical industries.   It is my hope that you will keep an open mind and actually have the courage to pursue my suggestions and go forward into a bright, knowledgeable, and healthy future.  To that end, let's proceed onward.   

 Please let me admit that some 40  odd years ago when I began to explore my my health and the problems I was encountering in life, I was quite naive about nutrition and metabolic science.  Fortunately I had an excellent university education and keen mind. I've learned much about myself and solutions painstakingly discovered along the way.  So bare  that in mind- these are not obvious answers and your condition is probably the results of big business practices and deceptions abetted by the FDA and the AMA!  

This is a new update for my readers that I wanted to alert about.  As I mention I recommend certain things for my 'smoothies.'  Lately I've added 2 new items into the mix and I'm very impressed with the results.  Particularly in energy, stamina and recovery time.  They are both from Bulk Supplements.  1 tspn. Creatine Monohydrate in the morning ( I buy the 1 Kilogram size).  The other is L-Carnitine 1/2 tspn. morning and noon.  I think you will notice nice changes within 1 week! New readers can just file this away for the future.

As you progress and the body is cleared of the toxins you will return to a normal appetite and hunger level,and, after the cleanse, may wish to cook and eat more variety.  Suggestions for what I recommend are presented later- but remember to apply the principles I've taught you here.  If it's a 'processed' food- it's probably full of these chemicals.  Anything from soda pop, Snicker's, bread, to Mac and Cheese.  If it's in a box,  wrapper, jar, or can, it's probably processed and these chemicals added.   Read the labels.  The list of 'ingredients' are intentionally deceptive about these items and simply call them 'preservatives,'  'salts,'  'natural flavors' or the like.  And, yes, they can now call artificial ingredients 'natural'-  they "lobbied" congress!  These companies have the power of Big Pharmacy to 'influence' legislation...  So always think about  that and avoid such products.  

As an aside, some of you might find satisfaction with the Paleo Diet.  What you learn here will translate to that system though the rapid deep health benefits are not the same.  Still learn from my site and explore the other if you are seeking a healthier diet then you are currently employing.  Eventually after you have detoxed on my system for several weeks or months or longer as the case may require, you can adapt to Paleo for variety- especially if you enjoy fancier cooking.  It's not for me but it seems many people do well with it. You won't be accomplishing the same deep detox on Paleo- maybe over time?

I'm kind of basic myself and prefer to keep it simple and closer to nature...  Still keep my thoughts foremost and for sure only use the clean food sources I recommend in this site. Information about this choice is available and elsewhere, online...  Just don't get hypnotized and split.  You are in the right place.

Please remember that this strategy is up to date and if you find the information has changed or is  slightly different, don't panic!  If some past suggestion is working well for you, stay with it...  I'm just keeping everything up to the moment at this end.

 If you are in the unfortunate place where you take statins I recommend a daily minimum 100mgs of ubiquinol such as Qunol at Amazon. Also 2 Wild fish Oil Omega 3's (place in freezer to preserve freshness) at Amazon.  

I really recommend that focusing on the digestion system will be of great benefit to probably the majority of my readers.  You should have 1-3 good movements a day.  This is very important. Try  Aerobic Life Mag O7.  It's available at  Amazon.   The protocol suggests working up to caps for 7-10 days.  I find this dose to aggressive and would have you start with 1-3,4 an hour before  bedtime,  whatever minimum works to produce healthy strong daily  movements and  keep you regular.  Just be aware that you may have to poop unexpectedly.  If that is the case back up the dosage to have satisfactory controlled visits to the bathroom. has many  helpful positive reviews though I use Amazon to purchase, myself.  So be sure to have regular bowel movements- and keep up with the spinach.   

To facilitate this process you should include prebiotic foods in your diet.  These are foods that form a healthy intestinal environment for beneficial bacteria to flourish.  Simply google 'prebiotic foods' and you'll find a complete list of these- I have a dill pickle spear with lunch typically. 

I take 'Purely Beneficial' Resveratrol 1450 with my noon and dinner supplements as this supercharges the benefits of the beet root/citrulline (later on) health factors.  Its available at amazon.  You should notice positive changes in blood pressure and liver function!  

This next 4 paragraphs are very important to know and can be of considerable help to you!

 You must become serious and knowledgeable about the problem of toxicity, including heavy metal, and pesticide detox.  I strongly recommend liquid Zeolite available at (1-732-860-4260).  Only this brand! Read the site for details.  I really recommend that you do so with my program to powerfully assist your body remove the toxic substances from the blood stream as the fat releases them back into circulation. The zeolite will help trap and eliminate these substances and moderate somewhat the cravings due to the addiction response being reactivated!  Always allow at least 2 hours after a meal and 45 minutes before or after other fluids when consuming  zeolite to increase it's effectiveness.

Though the site is focused on heavy metal detox,  the chemicals in pesticides and 'additives' are also neutralized so they can exit the body. Thus it is very important that you get all the benefits from incorporating zeolite into this plan!  This is an incredibly powerful and helpful product.  I can't say enough about it!  

If you call, you can get it at  discount- 6 bottles for $66, 12/$100. This is very cost effective and reflects their sincere motivation over profit.  When starting and on my salad diet consider starting with 6 drops  3 times a day progressing to quickly to 13 drops 3 times a day, and follow the suggested protocol. If you try 13 drops  3 times a day  you will use 3 bottles a month.  Eventually you can reduce this though I feel a minimum maintenance dosage of 13 drops a day is good preventative insurance.  The stuff is very safe to consume and you might experience some really positive effects right away.  Anyway, I think you'll be better for it!

No matter what else you take from my site, I seriously recommend that you incorporate Zeolite into you daily routine- 13 drops, 1-3 times a day! 

 Just in passing,  the Pau D'arco tea is also very detoxifying!   

My next considerations for you are these- Magnesium L-threonate, the most bioavailable  form of magnesium.  I  also take Magnesium Chloride with my regular supplements.  Both AM/PM.  

In spite of what the ads say you're much more likely to be Magnesium deficient than Calcium deficient-  actually taking more than a little calcium can be harmful to you.  What you want to do is improve the ratio between the two!  Taken together as supplements they compete with each other in a detrimental way so I take my mag. sups AM and PM, and one Calcium at noon.  The standard recommendation for calcium is up to 1,800 mgs/day.  This is not a good idea and emerging studies support me on this.   One cap. max at lunch so that your magnesium levels are in a healthy range and your bones will be better for it.  And if this is a concern add a Boron chelate and strontium at lunch.  I recommend 1 Swanson's Albion Calcium or 1 Calcium Citrate product at lunch only.  

You probably get plenty of Calcium in your diet.  The magnesium L-threonate form crosses the blood-brain barrier which supports  overall cognitive function. If cost is a problem (I know this is adding up) stick with the chloride form- just store it in the container with the plastic packing material as it will dissolve in air and cover your other supplementss with goo!  The Chloride form is good for muscle/nerve/detox... 

I seriously recommend an Optizinc in the AM with a NOW selenium, (200 mcgs).  Then a 200mg. copper supplement 4 evenings a week to balance the zinc which can deplete copper otherwise.  Take this way  to keep them from interfering with absorption.  These  minerals are strong thyroid and immune system aids.  

Along with the NOW brand C-1,000 mgs caps/ not tabs, I suggest NOW Ascorbyl Palmitate 500mgs. both, twice a day.  The Palmitate is a fat soluble form of Ascorbic Acid and the body uses it to penetrate into your cellular membrane.  The regular form does not do this.  Using the 2 together helps you take full advantage of Vitamin C more effectively.  

If you are older and concerned about cognitive health,  I recommend you consider Bacopa Monniera (Paradise or Bacognize Bacopa Monniera 240 caps.),  Ginkgo Biloba (Life Extension 120 mgs.), and Vinpocetine (10 mgs.).  I use all and they keep me sharp.  I would be careful about these if you are on blood thinners as they thin your blood and may not be combined safely.  

 You might have noticed I feature NOW products.  I don't get any kick backs- they are just a very resposible resource!

Note:  If you choose the Alta magnesium chloride ( cheaper but 2nd best bio-available) DO NOT store with other supplements- it will break down into a goo that is a mess!  Store in it's container, with the plastic material it's packaged with, as it is reactive to oxygen and moisture and quickly turn to goo.  Take from container when you consume AM and PM.   Inconvenient but worth the extra hassle... 
 I also take Nature's Life Malic acid (Amazon) AM/PM daily.  Read up to see if this could address some of your health concerns.  

Remember the diet, teas, Mag O7, spinach, and zeolite is the first priority.The supplements next as/if you can afford them and you are ok there...   Stay tuned!
  Before  lunch and dinnertime,  I drink a glass of clean water with  a scoop  of Viva Deo Beet powder from Amazon.  This is a very beneficial substance.  I also add 1 level  teaspoon of L-citrulline from Bulksupplements.  I add less than 1/8 teaspoon of Pine bark extract from with the noon mix.  Drink slowly like a food, even swishing it to mix with digestive properties of the saliva in your mouth!  This swishing is very important as the beet root needs the digestive qualities of saliva it activate it in the body! 

Beet root, besides benefiting the liver and gallbladder, reduces high blood pressure.  You may be able to reduce or even eliminate your blood pressure medications over time.... 
 A cautionary note: this combination can significantly affect libido and enhance your sex drive, particularly if you are getting along in years, especially when l-citrulline and pine bark extract are added.  I'll be discussing those items shortly.  So don't be surprised if ED soon isn't a problem...

 So listen to yourself, stay balanced...
  I'd recommend a good B50-complex as well, like Briofood's Day-To-Day B-50 formula at Amazon...
The L-citruline and pine bark, I order Bulksupplements from Amazon or from They're quality products at excellent prices.  Just thought I'd make that recommendation here...  
We all should get regular sunshine to promote natural vitamin D3.  You are much more likely to get skin cancer from the chemicals in suntan products then sunlight.  Just start slow and work up to longer exposure- like 10-15 minutes and add increments. Health professionals are all saying nowadays  "Avoid the Sun!"  I think the special interests want to deceive you because they realize how important to a healthy immune system vitamin D is.  If you are lacking vitamin D well, you become a profitable patient they can 'diagnose' and prescribe 'medications.' I don't think God would put  the Sun up there if it was a bad thing. But greedy people will try to convince you to slather noxious proven carcinogenic (cancer causing) chemicals on your skin.  Pretty sick, right? 

Let's follow that thought a moment.  Back in the 50's- 60's- 70's there was only rarely a case of skin cancer.  The only thing that seems to have changed is that TV began to recommend   'suntan' lotion to avoid sunburn- so they said.  Then after a couple of decades and more and more regular consumers began to develop skin cancer they said the Sun's rays were 'dangerous' and the only way to prevent this was 'suntan' lotion.  Really the only thing that changed was that more and more people were constantly applying  more and more known cancer producing chemicals on their skin.  Seems the game is profiting off an ignorant bunch of people who were fooled into thinking this was healthy.  Not telling you to jump into the Sun for hours to begin with.  I remember when it was simply cool to be outside having fun.  Just saying... 

Anyway, if you can't get a healthy daily dose of sunshine, then personally,  I take 2,000 mgs. of D3  2-3 times daily to provide the many health benefits.  Maybe google Vitamin D3 benefits for more.  Make sure it's vitamin D3! I like the Carlson brand in the 360 soft gel size. It's a good idea to also supplement with Now MSM if you take D3 as it needs sulfur to function effectively...

 I repeat Now selenium (200 mgs.) daily a very important suggestion.  This mineral with the Optizinc supports  a strong immune system that will war against serious disease factors and is a good health resource.  Along with the iodine (Detoxadine) you also get strong thyroid support. 

I recommend Buddha's Herbs extra strength Garlic Oil in the AM  from Amazon.  It's a very good resource for blood pressure and the cardiovascular system.  If you are one who experiences a problem with garlic taste or odor you might want to try another brand as this one is very potent.  I don't notice it myself.
 I must reiterate use chlorine free water!  Chlorine is toxic, kills the live natural enzymes and can disturb the food's organic properties.  This may prove to be a challenge but, please find a way to access this kind of water for all the water you drink.  Seriously consider using the Aquaspace  carafe and filter I mention below...  I prefer this to reverse osmosis treatment. I also highly recommend the Aquaspace Aquatomic Micro-clustering device, in consort with this.  The magnets in this product powerfully re-energize and enhance the quality of your water.  It becomes much closer to the health dynamics of mountain artesian water.  Studies prove it!   Worth every penny!  Note the Aquaspace replacement filters usually last  6 months or longer depending.

 I do not recommend bottled water- the inferior plastic in the container moves into the water and it's likely to be 'acidic' as well as not so clean as you would think.  Distilled water is "dead" water- might be pure but my sources say it actually lacks valuable minerals and even will leech these valuable minerals out of your blood... 

  Despite what they say, your tap water has been shown to have serious contaminants including drugs and other toxic substances that enter the water supply.  I mean does your tap water taste great or like chlorine, metallic and funky?  No wonder you avoid it.  I  don't know if you ever drank out a fresh mountain stream or not.  It's wonderfully refreshing.  Tap water, no offense, typically tastes  disgusting if you don't filter it correctly. You'll be amazed how refreshing your water will taste with the Aquaspace filter and Aquatomic micro-clustering device.  And very much healthier! 

To repeat.  You will be amazed, if you use these filters how great and how healthy the difference is- you'll enjoy it. As close to an artesian stream and no carcinogenic plastic contamination from 'bottled water!  Plus if you've been buying 'bottled' water the filter is actually more cost effective and better quality!  So why not try the Aquaspace products- then compare to untreated tap water. Then just transfer to the bottles I recommend for 
on-the-go flexibility.  (Note I derive no income from these referrals.)

There are 'safe' containers you can reuse to transport water or tea.  Two examples are the 12 oz. Nalgene Tritan  and the 32 oz. MoYo Natural Labs refillable squirt options at Amazon.  Stainless coffee mugs for the car or stainless steel thermos jugs are OK.

 Susan Smith-Jones has an ionizing and alkalizing machine listed on her site that I'd recommend if you are interested and can afford it.  It may be your best alternative for making a very healthy change to ordinary tap water! If you can afford it and this is in your health plan you might choose to investigate the product.  There are other such types at that look good so you can compare.    
  I purchase Himalayan pink (sherpa) crystal sea salt, the "Sherpa Pink" brand, extra fine texture, economically in 5 pound bulk at Amazon.  This is the finest salt and best source that I've found.  I  always use this in place of regular salt and with my Navage  nasal cleaning system ( see the latter part of Healthy Habits)! 

 Again, I use the Aquaspace water carafe/filter and Aquatomic Micro Clustering device.  I order mine from the  my resource- good price/shipping.      

Although this may seem absurd to some,  I wear and endorse the  Q-link pendant for electromagnetic frequency (emf) protection and to improve my blood morphology ( the brushed silver pendant).  Many people experience significant benefits from simply wearing this product.  Google or check out and  read the reviews at Amazon.  As ever, the decision is yours to try it or not.  Frankly, in this world  filled with radio, microwave, and other electromagnetic chaos we need all the help we can get to enhance our personal bio-electrical space! 

There is an unhealthy amount of chlorine gas released during your shower.  You inhale this and it's not good for you.  To deal with this problem I recommend Dr. Mercola's shower filter about $85- well worth it!  Replacement filters about $55.00.

  Your thyroid gland requires iodine daily.   Supplementing this essential mineral will support strong thyroid function.  Sub-optimal thyroid performance is a common unrecognized condition...  Detoxadine from Amazon is an excellent product!  Bladderwrack is a great resource as well.  

 FYI- there is  historical evidence that large doses of full spectrum Vitamin E is highly an effective remedy for several compromised health conditions.  Most of the research was decades ago and it was so impressive that the medical establishment ridiculed and suppressed it rather than lose profits for patent medications.  The therapeutic protocol is 400 IUs per 30 pounds body weight in the AM before breakfast.  I recommend NOW natural E-400 Complex  400 IU's  available at Amazon in 250 softgel size.  These days I take 800 IU's at breakfast.  There are other Vitamin E products Like Carlson Elite E and A.C. Grace but they are a little price prohibitive...  
Prevagen is a recent discovery for those with brain fog, memory problems, and cognitive loss due to aging and associated impairments such as Alzheimer's.  The reports suggest dramatic gains with  Prevagen,  Discounted cost $39 typically and $42-$59 for extra strength for one month supply (avail. at Vitacost and cheaper at Amazon).  I haven't checked it out personally but many of you may be looking for such an item for yourself, friends, or loved ones...
There are more supplements out there that I mention in the text that follows, but please note that the whole thing rests upon integrating them with the dietary suggestions- the Five Pillars.   It's important to eat well of quality sources otherwise you are not assisting the body's attempt to provide you an  excellent vehicle. So give it time and be patient and prepared to experience  rejuvenation over time.  The more you adhere to the suggestions the more likely you'll enjoy dramatic results.

 Now if you begin to implement these ideas and suggestions, the more you include, the more effective and the sooner you can experience the changes. Just remember noticeable changes can be rapid or take time to occur, so be patient and consistent...

Just to be upfront, I'm not your typical  'saint'- so every once in a while I 'cheat.'  But that's not bad after you've done the basic course or you "just have to or you'll go nuts."  But later on I explain how this works out according to metabolic science.  Not to give you an excuse, do the program but there is room for revisiting old favorites after that without feeling any kind of guilt.  The reasoning is explained further along but don't jump the gun now, remember the other things I've taught, OK?
As we proceed onward I want you to consider the preceding information to be a concise formula all by itself that offers incredible benefits for anyone, even vegans or basic vegetarians.  
 For those seeking to expand soul awareness I refer you to the path  located at .  Other than that let's proceed onward...
It  is Fire.    Darker  than Night !
A   Flaming  Song...      Raging  Light !

Know that this information is specially organized and targeted to provide a powerful,  concise system.  It will provide  you both  direction and knowledge.  By presenting  content in this way,  I've found that this can realistically  accelerate your ability  to get results!  You may also develop a better   understanding and awareness of both what  holistic health is  and  the traps and pitfalls  that are out there to mislead the unwary. 

 Look at this stuff, dig into it and consider modifying your current behavior  as you are able.    Feel free to test it !   Remember to  be kind to yourself! Change can be tough.  And, please remember and accept that not all your answers are to be found here... I'm not a professional psychic or  personal oracle,  for goodness sake!   I just want you to review this stuff, see how ya feel about it, and for all your changes to be good one's,  agreeable and effective, not disruptive.

There are lots of sites with information about any particular herb or drug available  via a specific google search.  It's a smart idea to expand and extend your knowledge base about any  issue relevant to  your  optimum  safety and health.   While we're on the topic of drugs called  'medications,'  if you are in the unhappy place where this is your present  reality,  then you   should have  and consult  a good 'Lay Person's'  guide to drugs and side-effects ! These are readily available online and at  bookstores.  Typically  most doctors  do not, in my experience,  inform their clients about this subject  at  all !   So,   take heed !   It's vital that  you  be aware of the consequences  of taking pharmaceuticals and participating in the prescription medicine show!  
  These prescriptions can be or are inherently dangerous to your continued health and well-being !  So please inform yourself about them. 
 Much information and  advice  for you  is  in  the  Section:  Healthy Habits. 
 I  strongly want you to consider if  you're really   serious  about  your health  that you  avoid   all processed and man-made foods and additives!!!  

 Powerful commercial interests  employ  some very odious tactics  to lull  you into thinking that they  are   "Safe for Human Consumption !"  In my humble opinion, it's not the truthAs far as I've been able to determine nothing is further from  the truth! Since these chemicals will likely cause you problems so that you seek out a doctor, there doesn't seem to be any incentive for them to speak out against their vested interests in making more money above all, sad to say... 
Not to mention the fact  that pesticides, chemical fertilizers, commercial  processing and practices,  typically destroy much,  if not  all,  the nutritional value  that  was  present  and available in the original food item !  Besides being poisonous  many feel pesticides are the leading element in developing cancer.  I add these lack of original nurtrient values and the insidious additives.

 Still...   I  would like for you to contemplate and  reflect  deeply about this! At least I've done my best to alert you to these hidden dangers to your wellness come what may.
Moving  along now and to make a point here-   I  do not recommend soy products such as  soy protein  and soy milk !  Probably,  you are  amazed  to read that  just now !  After all,   Soy  has a  "Rep"  for being a healthy  choice !    Yet  I'm  not  alone in this !  Your  basic,  run-of-the-mill  "consumer,"  as the corporate world describes us,  probably  does not feel or  think  this way  about  the subject at hand.  Even most   health nuts  and nutritionists  have fallen for the propaganda!'  The truth is the Soy  Industry,  "Big   Soy,"  if you will,  has spent a boatload of cash-  
millions of dollars  out  front and in subtle advertising simply to convince you  that these soy products  are good for you !  Again, no such thing could be further from the truth ! Most soy out there nowadays is  not  fit  to eat in my  opinion.   It's become the product of genetic modification and seriously  caustic hexane chemical extraction processes.  Not natural.  More of a toxin than a food.  Again, according to present research and in my humble opinion.

I make exception for fermented (non GMO) products such as natto/misso, low sodium soy sauce, Bragg's 'Liquid Amino's.  I don't recommend soy lecithin.  It's typically GMO and compromised by toxic hexane extraction. However, NOW sunflower lecithin is a great product.
The more you discover about  genetically  modified organisms (GMOs)  the scarier they become.  These are natural food species that have been  biologically  altered.   They  are not  natural !  They are artificial  FrankenFoods (as in Frankenstein),  that   do not  belong in your body or diet !  I don't care what anyone tries  to do to cause you to doubt that !  Don't  let  yourself  be fooled and be sold a bill of goods!  don't want to ever be convicted for being vague or nebulous on this stuff.

Along this line, please consider choosing  not to eat  processed  grains/flour, sugar,  or commercial table  salt !   Especially,  do  not  consume any " High Fructose" corn syrup or artificial sweeteners !  Even most corn by now is,  contaminated GMO corn (especially USA grown corn and 'corn products').  
  Think about this.  Animals in nature very rarely get sick !  Seriously.  The very reason you  'get sick'  is  that  you are  eating in  a way  that actually  attacks and  weakens  your body's immune response  systems and lacks natural nutritional elements. This hampers  it's  ability to  thrive and  to  combat  and resolve negative situations...
 Probably you should eat less.  Lots of credible research indicates that this is very provident if you wish to enhance longevity and optimum health characteristics.  So try to avoid the  habit  of  over-eating and of consuming  snack foods.  Most all your commercial snack items are serious examples for what not to eat!  I think I've clearly explained what is going on about that in my intro! 

If you're going to eat,  have something that's healthy, nutritious and good for you.  Many times, what ya  really  could use  is a good ol'  glass of clean water or the Pau'Arco tea.  You've  learned to mistake the body's request. You've been conditioned to reach for "sweet, spicy, or salty" toxic 'junk' food instead.
Don't  feel  guilty.   In  our time's   it's   a wonder that  you don't !
 Please don't  let yourself  feel  overwhelmed or have a  panic   attack  as you follow along.  I've been exposing  you  to  a lot  of  information and  perspective !  I  want  you to know this... There  IS  hope and the  possibility  of reversing   past  mistakes,  however  they came  to  be. Yet change is not necessarily automatic, even positive changes usually feel somewhat strange or weird in the beginning.
Water  quality  is  very  important.  Chlorine, fluorine, and other contaminants  are   not  something to ingest !   Buying  bottled water or  distilling,  to me,  are not acceptable  choices.   Yet  not  all water filtration systems  are  created  equal.   Like I say, I  use  and  recommend,  above all others, the   Aquaspace Carafe, and  Aquatomic  Magnetic Micro-Clustering product.   Aquaspace technology  was  developed to meet  NASA criteria.  Although the site  is  rather  behind-the-times, I  suggest  you  visit  ''  to  get  the research.  I purchase mine at .  Aquaspace quality  is what  I expect for myself... That probably gets you as close as possible to a natural artesian spring.
 valuable  basic  dietary tip for you  is to consume only organic foods and avoid negative fats and fried foods,  probably eat less generally and utilize the principles of this  dietary health enhancement system.  Avoid processed foods, grains, sugars, commercial salt, and starches. 

Note:  I don't consider grain fed beef organic.  Grass fed only!
 After completing the  protocol or if you pass on that (sadness),  this is what you do:    
Simply  consume  only fresh  raw or   gently  cooked/steamed,   baked,  clean and  wholesome  organic  food!  Large  fresh  organic   mixed   garden salads  daily and regularly, spinach, broccoli and cabbage ! Oil and vinegar dressing.  
Integrate  this  with  all  organic  Sprouts...   Nuts...   Seeds...  Free Range Eggs...   
Wild Seafood and other high  quality  ORGANIC  protein  sources ! There's a real difference between organic grass fed beef and grain/hormone fed animal protein! 
Avoid all fried foods. I don't recommend peanuts or peanut butter. 

Consider adopting the zeolite, Pau D'arco tea, and Mag O7 regularly to assist your pursuit of wellness.  
I recognize that this is not easy to accomplish.  Consider it as your goal and make the best choices you can... As  always  "Relax."   Strive  to   make it  simple & basic- remember moderation.  
Strangely, I don't recommend much fruit and any fruit juices. The fact is, despite common opinion, there's really not much actual nutrition in fruits, mainly beta carotenes, fluid and simple fruit sugars.   These sugars can spike your insulin and turn off the body's ability to utilize fats metabolically.  We are built to operate on proteins and complex carbs. We don't want to disable the mechanism designed to burn fats and utilize amino acids. Some fruits are better than others and even desirable on occasion. A grapefruit, orange, or organic apple a day, for example.   Fruit  juices are mostly only organic sugar drinks, lack fiber and are mainly unneeded calories. This excess  fruit sugar  will spike your insulin response.  If you stick with the other foods you'll more rapidly eliminate toxins, burn fats with the presence of hormone sensitive lipase not being shut down by the insulin response. Otherwise, occasional organic fruits are alright. 
 Drink  plenty of good filtered  water, alone and with the pau d'arco tea and zeolite.   I find I'm mainly drinking the Pau D'arco tea and  two 12 oz. cups of the Pau D'arco/Yerba Mate- especially one in the AM instead of coffee. Try  to drink the bulk of your water/tea 45 minutes before or 2 hours after your meals.  Drink fluids at least 45 minutes apart from more fluid. Don't drink or eat  close to bedtime.  

Yams,  sweet potatoes,  sliced or 'chunked'  and steamed for about 20 minutes, with a little extra virgin olive or raw coconut  oil and cinnamon are fun now and then.  Baked or steamed squashes, lightly seasoned with a little olive oil. Most all that  I am trying to impart to you is based on this kind of thinking...
An odd feature about metabolism is that  occasionally it's smart to cheat and enjoy your indulgences in food.  This actually stimulates the body into revving up the production of leptin.  Though no more than once every 10-14 days.  So by indulging you ramp up your metabolism  and thereby accelerate fat loss.  A little known fact- just like the importance of having hormone sensitive lipase freely available by avoiding insulin/sugar reactions.  For those just starting my program hold off on this and stay focused on flushing gunk out.  
That's it...  These  are the foundational concepts.  Yet please read the material in 'Healthy Habits,' there is much there I'd like to share.
 You'll notice I don't recommend grains.  Cooked and processed grains lack nutrients can turn off the body's production of hormone resistant lipase production and act metabolically like simple sugars. They  are mucus-producers  that  clog and impede what you're asking the body to accomplish. Not what standard folks would  tell you and a challenge for you to accept, I'm sure.
 If it's your birthday and someone bakes you a cake...  Eat da frickin' cake!  Enjoy it.  Tell 'em , "What a terrific cake!"  You'll probably survive the night...  still many people I respect say avoid grains- it wasn't what natural metabolic processes that our early neolithic ancestors evolved with and lived on and I think there are much preferable foods.  Once you wean these out it will become obvious though you will crave them and
the pleasant memories associated with the products...
 I know this seems complex and overly complicated right now, let it settle a bit... It's simply challenging information overload. You can always review this again and again. Don't feel like you have to have it all just right and memorized on first read.  
I never promised all  this would be effortless!  Indeed much of my thought appears heretical.  But follow the irrefutable logic and the promise.  For now, just consider this thought and the implications. Grains are probably the greatest reason so many suffer from allergies, asthma, and many  other pathological conditions.  Many leading holistic health experts, such as Dr. Mercola, Prof. Arnold Ehret, and others  agree with this thought. 
Also, I suggest avoiding commercial  dairy products.  There are a lot of reasons for this, including disruption of hormonal systems and the damage that  results from ingesting 'homogenized' milk fats. These micronized fats actually scar your blood vessels!.  And the lactic acid  evokes an insulin spike response thus you impacting your metabolism.  I find a little milk in my coffee in the morning is OK and doesn't effect this program. If you have to drink milk then organic unpasteurized is a better source.  I'd go with some of the tea.
About now is a good time to discuss detoxification.  A nice feature about the 'system' is that it is very detoxifying.  With it, gradually over time, you quickly and gently expel the toxins from your body. However, you should know that this is a serious subject that should be addressed and I would be remiss if we didn't explore it here somewhat. 
Most of us suffer varying degrees of  toxicity.  It is possible to reverse this and assist the body in eliminating the  noxious substances that are stuck in your organs and tissues.  
As you evolve into a healthy diet and lifestyle,  toxic substances are pushed out of your cells and into the bloodstream and lymphatic system, in gaseous form as you exhale, from the pores of the skin, and via urine and bowels for elimination. You can  greatly assist your body by following the suggestions to enhance the process.  Side-effects of this process of detoxification can be uncomfortable and require actions on your part to avoid possible negative reactions to your healing.  These uncomfortable periods are known as "having a healing crisis."  The body may feel 'bad' and you might have strange sensations as the crud is pushed out.   That's why  it's important that  you stay on course and not be too aggressive in your attempt to facilitate detoxing.  My program accounts for this.
 I don't recommend lengthy fasts. Even shorter fasts can be problematic if you are a neophyte.   So I advise you to slow down, the body needs rich sources of nutrients, fiber and time to stay balanced and regenerate as it returns to health.  And consider this, if you don't eat, except for an egg, until about 11AM you essentially are fasting since the previous dinner and benefiting greatly.
So to reiterate...  A good thing to do is to assist the body  in the process and make it more comfortable,  effective and productive.  As I say, please add this to your awareness  as your journey evolves... 
I recommend these ideas.  As you begin progress and begin to transition from the basic protocol, make sure that your diet has plenty of green leafy vegetables- raw and steamed, continue the Mag O7, and always continue to drink plenty of the filtered water/tea/zeolite.    
 Also as you advance, you might consider the "coffee enema" (see: 'Healthy Habits).  I know sounds gross but it's a really excellent protocol.

Another thing to be serious about is exercise and  being active.  I have a strong and varied program that I am very faithful to.  What you do is subject to a number of possibilities and preferences.  There is one to be found in "Recommendations."   There are many others- body weight ones I like are Hindu Squats and Hindu push-ups, instructive videos are on YouTube. Many choices are available depending on your goals, condition, and preferences.    Walking daily should always be a great thing to do. 
It's  important to consider relaxation and meditation/contemplation as powerful tools to include in your quest for a 'complete' health program.  Getting a good night's sleep is also very important!  By now everyone is aware of just how significant a role they play in countering stress and optimizing overall wellness. 

The Insight audio CD in recommendations can help you here.  I suggest you visit that section and and check this out. 
So at  the moment you might be somewhat anxious, skeptical or whatever. Try to take a deep breath, relax, release and let go of your stress.  Imagine or visualize yourself as you want to be- confidant, radiant, flexible, youthful and free!   You're going to 'get there.'   You have all the time to get it right.  You have a right to know and to be.     In the meantime keep it all in perspective.  Let things come together as they will, in harmony with everything else you have going on.  Stay balanced and in control... 
I  believe that  life is a miracle.  Within you flows a creative power, cosmic impulse,  divine energy.  Call it Chi, Prana,  or simply the life force.  Whatever.   You  can draw upon it and connect to the same power that holds the stars in space and is behind every  beat of your heart.
