Psyllium Husk Two tablespoons in 8oz steam distilled water three times a day or six caps three times a day. For colon health, fiber, and prevention of all diseases. Constipation is the leading cause of all conditions, including latent infection (invisible until around 30-40’s of age), skin, hair loss, heart, pancreas, and hormonal issues. (Ehret, p.1)
Nutritional Yeast Two tablespoons three times a day. Make a warm broth with 2 oz of warm steam distilled water. Add kelp or dulse, olive oil. Nutritional yeast is for a superior nervous system and energy. Nutritional yeast is a single-celled plant organism with all of the b vitamin nutrients, including fiber and B12, potassium, and iron. Blend nutritional yeast with kelp, spirulina, wheatgrass, barley, and chlorella and some steam distilled water for an energetic, high vibrational warm or cold beverage.
Kelp, Dulce Sprinkle copiously onto food and in nutritional yeast broth. Kelp contains organic iodine, organic iron for superior thyroid health.
Olive Oil Attain an olive oil that is one pressing of the fruit for high nutrition and retention of the many micro and macronutrients. One tablespoon three times a day, chase it with apple juice to get the oiliness out of the mouth. Olive Oil lubricates the liver/gallbladder, which reduces pain, griping from the stones, and accumulated toxins in this area. (Christopher, 2015)
Liquid Amino Acids Having enough essential amino acids is crucial to protein building. There are 20 amino acids, 11 nonessential, and nine essential. The body processes the 11 nonessential internally and the nine essentials we get from foods. The nine nonessential amino acids are necessary during extreme physical stress and certain hereditary metabolic diseases like cancers, polycystic kidney disease, and Huntington’s. Liquid Amino Acids, either coconut or soy, organic, with no added chemicals, fillers, or processed sugars, are the best choices for preventing all latent illnesses and diseases.
