Diet Cure: Daily Menu for a Healthy Life Style

Based on what has been stated above, the daily menu of a health-building and vitalising diet should be on the following lines:

Upon arising: A glass of lukewarm water with half a freshly squeezed lemon and a spoonful of honey, or a glass of freshly squeezed juice of any available seasonal fruit such as apple, pineapple, orange, mosambi or grapes.

Breakfast: Fresh fruits such as apple, orange, banana, grapes or any available seasonal fruits, a cup of un-pasteurised milk and a handful of raw nuts such as almonds, cashewnuts and peanuts.

Lunch: A bowl of freshly prepared steamed vegetables such as carrot, cabbage, cauliflower, potatoes, squash or beans, using sea salt, vegetable oil or butter for seasoning, one or two whole wheat chappatis and a glass of butter-milk.

Mid-afternoon: A glass of fresh fruit or vegetable juice or coconut water or sugar cane juice.

Dinner: A large bowl of fresh salad made up of vegetables like tomatoes, carrot, beet, onion, etc:, with lemon juice dressing, any available sprouts such as alfalfa seed or mung beans along with one tablespoon of fresh butter, and cottage cheese or a glass of butter-milk.

Bed-time snacks: A glass of fresh milk or one apple.

The above menu is a general outline around which an individual diet can be built. It can be modified and changed to adapt to specific requirements and conditions. The menu for lunch and dinner is interchangeable. Water should not be taken with meals, but half an hour before or an hour after meals. Milk, butter-milk and vegetable soups can be taken with meals.

Diseases can be overcome by sensible natural dietetic treatment. Disease is actually a self-initiated effort of the body to throw off the accumlations of waste materials which are interfering with its functioning. Since most conditions of ill-health are systemic in their origin and have the same underlying causes, the basic treatment is likewise the same.

In the beginning of the dietetic treatment, the patient should undergo a short cleansing juice fast so that the body may throw off all the accumulated toxins and wastes. In this regimen, the person should take the juice of a fresh orange or any other juicy fruit diluted in the proportion of 50:50 with water.

Alternatively, vegetable juices such as carrot, cucumber, beet and spinach may be taken. Each day, while fasting, the bowels should be cleansed with a warm water enema. In certain conditions, the patient may adopt an exclusive fruit diet for a few days in the beginning of the treatment instead of juice fasting.

In this regimen, three meals a day”of fresh juicy fruits such as oranges, grapes, grapefruits, apples, pineapples, peaches and pears may be taken at five-hourly intervals. After the short juice fast or the all-fruit diet as the case may be, the patient may gradually embark upon a well-balanced diet of three basic food groups, namely seeds,nuts and grains, vegetables and fruits as already outlined.

Further, juice fasts or periods on the all-fruit diet may be undertaken at intervals of two or three months depending on the progress being made.
