Beverages

Drink 6 kinds of beverages:

• milk • vegetable juices

• water • herb teas

• fruit juices • homemade (see Recipes)

ton and Church, 1985.

28 Salt has aluminum in it to keep it from caking. Buy salt that has

magnesium carbonate as its anti-caking agent. Sea salt must be baked

for 5 minutes at 400°F to destroy molds. Or buy chemically pure salt.

This means getting off caffeine. And if you are already fatigued,

this means you might be even more fatigued for a short

time. You might have headaches from withdrawal, too. But they

will only last 10 days. Mark your calendar and count off the

days. Take headache medicine, if necessary, but make sure it

does not contain caffeine. For energy, to replace caffeine, take

one arginine (500 mg, see Sources) upon rising in the morning

and before lunch. Soon you won't need it.

Cutting down on coffee, decaf, soda pop and powdered

drinks won't do. You must be completely off. They contain very

toxic solvents due to careless, unregulated production methods.

Much is imported and can't be sufficiently regulated.

Even though grain (drinking) alcohol is the recommended

substitute for propyl alcohol, that doesn't mean you may safely

drink it. It is inadvisable to drink any form of alcohol at least

until you are fully recovered.

1. Milk: 2% or higher, drink three 8 oz. glasses a day. Alternate

brands. Buttermilk will do. Homemade yogurt is fine.

Goat milk is also fine. Start with ¼ cup and increase gradually, if

you are not used to it. If you do not drink milk because it gives

you more mucous, try to drink milk anyway. If you have other

reactions, like diarrhea, try milk digestant tablets (available at

health food stores). Milk is too valuable to avoid: there are many

unwanted chemicals in most brands of milk, but it is solvent-free,

mold-free and very nutritious. The only exception should be for

serious symptoms, like swelling, colitis, flu, or chronic diarrhea.

But all milk, whether goat or cow, is contaminated with

Salmonella and Shigella bacteria as well as fluke parasite

stages. Cattle are immunized against Salmonella but it does not

prevent its persistence in the bowel. All these are very harmful.

Pasteurization does not kill all of them. Only heating to a rolling

boil makes milk safe. To do this in the easiest way, pour 1 or 2

quarts milk into an enamel double boiler or microwavable glass

jar. Stay in the kitchen while the heat is on. When the bubbles

have risen to indicate boiling, turn off the heat. You may throw

away the “skin”. Pour into glass jar and refrigerate. Another easy

way is to use a pressure cooker that holds several pint jars of

milk. All dairy products that have only been pasteurized are still

contaminated. Ultrapasteurization does not improve matters.

Dairy products that cannot be sterilized should not be consumed.

It may be possible to find sterilized milk in paper containers on

the store shelf—not in the refrigerator; if it wasn't sterile it

would go foul in a day! Canned milk has solvent pollution.

Powdered milk has both solvent and bacterial pollution.

2. Water: 2 pints. Drink one pint upon rising in the morning,

the other pint in the afternoon sometime. The cold water faucet

may be bringing you cadmium, copper or lead, but it is safer than

purchased water, which inevitably has solvents in it. Let it run

before using it. Filters are rather useless because water pollution

comes in surges. A single surge of PCB contaminates your filter.

All the water you use after this surge is now polluted, so you will

be getting it chronically, whereas the unfiltered water cleans up

again after the surge passes. Until you can test your own water

for solvents, PCBs and metals, no expensive filter is worth the

investment. An inexpensive pure carbon filter that is replaced

every month may improve your tap water. Inflexible plastic

pitchers fitted with a carbon filter pack are available (see

Sources). Never buy filters with silver or other chemicals, even

if they are just added to the carbon. Keep the filter sterile by

soaking in diluted grain alcohol weekly.

3. Fruit juice: fresh squeezed only. Some stores make it

while you wait. If they freeze some of it, you could purchase the

frozen containers. Bottled fruit juices have traces of numerous

solvents, as do the frozen concentrates, as do the refrigerated

ones, don't buy them. You have to see it being made, but watch

carefully: I recently went to a juice bar where they made everything

fresh, before your very eyes. And I saw them take the fruit

right from the refrigerator and spray it with a special wash “to

get rid of any pesticides,” then put a special detergent on it to

clean off the wash! So instead of getting traces of pesticide, I got

traces of propyl alcohol!29 Another grocery store had a machine

that squeezed the oranges while you watched. But if you did not

watch them filling the jugs, you missed seeing them add a

tablespoon of concentrate, from a bottle out of sight, to give it

better flavor. It still qualifies as “Fresh squeezed 100% orange

juice,” but thanks to that concentrate it now has toluene and

xylene in it! Best of all, buy a juicer, select completely unbruised

fruit, wash with plain water, and make your own juice (enough

for a week—freeze it in half pint plastic bottles). For stronger

flavor, leave some of the peel in the juice.

4. Vegetable juice: fresh or frozen only. If you or a friend

would be willing to make fresh juice, this would be much better

than purchased juice. Start with carrot juice. Peel carrots (don't

scrape them, it's too easy to miss small dirt spots) and remove all

blemishes carefully, then rinse. Drink ½ glass a day. After you are

accustomed to this, add other vegetables and greens to the juice

to make up half of it. Use celery, lettuce, cabbage, cucumber,

beet, squash, tomato, everything raw that you normally have in

your refrigerator. Then drink one glass a day.

5. Herb tea: fresh or bulk packaged. Tea bag varieties are

moldy. Buy a non-metal (bamboo is common) tea strainer.

Sweeten with honey or brown sugar with vitamin C added.

6. Homemade beverage. If you will miss your coffee or

decaf, try just plain hot water with boiled whipping cream.

Sweeten with honey. Please see Recipes for many more suggestions.

29 Yes, I took a sample of the wash to test.
