I have had difficulty during the last ten years to receive any direct instructions from an LLMD or MD for that matter in regards to a diet which would be benefial. I have been hospitalized twice now due to toxic overload, and again I was in the ER from 10PM till 5 AM to get stabilized.
I have been give diets which are low carb- but at the same time, I am being told to use Mangosteen or Nano juice and grapepeels for their detoxyfying properties.(which of course are high carb.

One of the most important organs in the body for detoxification are the kidneys. So a diet oriented toward detoxification should supplement this very important organ. A good supplement for kidney drainage is solidago, talk to you doctor about it.

Dandelion greens, parsely and other bitter greens are not only good at cleansing the kidneys but the liver as well. I've got cuisanart mini-prep, i buy dandelion greens at the health store. I thoroughly wash the greens and a finely chop them in the mini-prep. I add 1.5 tablespoons of olive oil and either a half or full lemon with a couple of stalks of celery. I then put it in a bowl and store it in the refridgerator. I can use about a tablespoon or a little more for use in salads, sandwitches, or mixed in with brown rice or pasta. With brown rice or pasta I would offset with other vegetables and dressings.

For parsely substitute the dandelion greens. If you want to do a mercury detox with chlorella, add cilantro to the pesto.

The bowl will store for about a little more then a week.

Parsely and dandelion are both natural diuretics. The also help rebuild tissues in kidney as well.

Do some research or ask you doctor. Sometimes diurectics isn't what your kidney might need. Also, there is a lot of phosphorous in these vegetables, it is only going to be useful if there hadn't been kidney failure.

As an over-all diet, I have found that the ZONE DIET works the best for me. It is a diet where you balance the amount of carbohydrate, fat, and protein at each meal and snack.

You can take juice, but in moderation, as juices have a high glycemic index (rapidly increase blood sugar leading the body to pump out insulin to get some of it out of the blood and into fat). But, you can have them in small amounts--like about 4 oz. max at a time.

Weight control, better energy levels, less surge of energy followed by a crash. This diet is excellent for reversing Type 2 Diabetes and also for anyone with heart problems or cholesterol problems.

My husband's tests all went into normal range after 6 weeks on this diet after YEARS of increasingly worse tests following the American Heart Assn. diet. We also saved two or three people at his work from death due to heart problems by getting them on this diet.

Best,

Cass A
