INTESTINAL INFECTION (a detoxification) is characterized by abdominal swelling and discomfort, poor digestion, flatulence, cramps, diarrhea and sometimes headache.
Eating 1-2 smoothies made with ½ raw unripe banana and 1-3 raw eggs, 1 tablespoon unheated honey and, when available, 2-4 tablespoons raw cream daily, and 2 raw custards daily soothes and heals the intestines during infection. Avoid any whole vegetables, lettuce, spinach, carrots, parsley, etc., until several days after the intestinal discomfort has subsided. However, drinking the raw juice of predominantly low-carbohydrate vegetables such as celery and parsley promotes a healthier intestinal environment, but not in children under 15 years of age.
