On WebMD there is information stating that high fiber foods such as raw fruits, and vegetables can irritate or flare up Crohn’s disease. But, your article on Chron’s disease says to switch to a
vegan diet after detoxing. Why would raw fruits and vegetables flare up Chron’s disease? Why do your articles suggest to eat raw fruits and veggies when people say it can irritate the disease?

    Q: I am trying to contact you in regards to my young cousin she is 22 yeas old and is currently hospitalized in relation to her Chron's Disease. She seems to be in pretty bad shape and having numerous flare ups. She also has ulcerative colitis she is dealing with in conjunction with the Chron's disease. Do you think she is in too bad of shape to try and heal this naturally? If not what would you suggest she does? My family is all but given up and thinks she is dying. She is very depressed which I don't think is helping her.

    A:

    It is never too late to heal from any disease the natural route. She has excess mucus in her body causing the flare-ups.

    Try the Full Body Cleanse to help her body eliminate toxins and detoxify the entire system.

    Give her some Aloe Vera juice to drink for the ulcer. Cabbage juice is the best thing for ulcers. Keep her away from acidic foods! Alkalize her diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.

    Q: While doing a candida cleanse, it was told to me that I should be following a raw food diet full of fruits and vegetables. Fruits have high sugar content and can feed a candida overgrowth, as it is a well known fact that candida albicans thrive on sugar. How can I justify eating fruits high in sugar? Thank you for your comments. Ozzy

    A: Yes, when you have a candida issue it's best to avoid refined sugar. Sugar from a natural source like fruits should be consumed moderately. In your case it would be best to consume fruits mainly in the mornings for breakfast when your body maximizes on food the most, avoiding the ones that are very high in sugar.

    Q: Which are the best fruits and vegetables that promote weight loss during the detox and should the nuts be excluded? Do I need a combination of protein, carbohydrates and fats in order to lose substantially and if so, are there fruits and vegetables in these categories and is there possibly a limit to certain ones?

    A:

    All fruits and vegetables help to tone you to the weight you desire. Why exclude nuts? Weight comes from meat, dairy products, refined products, etc. Not natural foods! Don't worry about protein, carbs, etc. It creates confusion! Real food doesn't cause problems. Let all the dietary confusion go and you will be fine!

    Q: I do not see much information on herbs for Lymes Disease? I was bitten by a tick last summer and have not felt the same since. My tests come back negative, but I read that Lymes tests are not reliable. Can you suggest a regimen for Lymes?

    A:

    The Lymes Disease article will go up within a week. Stay abreast! First of all, herbs are not the best line of defense for the Lyme bug. It's an external problem so you need external measures (bathing in hot water, 2 boxes of sea salt added, 1 cup hydrogen peroxide). Do this for starters!

    Great question. The key to successfully The Full Body Cleanse, is to not starve yourself. We want you to consume fresh fruits, and vegetables until you are content. Many people forget that the elephant, which is one of the biggest mammals on land is in fact a vegetarian. You can still eat veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, and be content. I have provided you with a link to the recipes section on our site. Please click the link, and then look at the section entitled, "Raw Recipes." Under that section you will find a bunch of recipes that you can use while cleansing.
