Making Herbal Remedies! | Ashwagandha Tincture

What herbal Remedies am I currently working on? 

Ashwagandha aka “Indian Ginseng," tincture in the works! 

I started these the other day, will take about 8 weeks to completion. Used as an adrenal herb, stress and anxiety reducer. Also known to be grounding, calming, restoring and much more!  

            #herbalmedicine #naturalremedies #naturalhealth #ashwagandha #ashwagandhabenefits


ashwagandha

 To make Ashwagandha tincture we simple fill a jar with about 1/3 to 1/2 cup organic dried herb and then fill up the rest of the jar with vodka or any 80 proof alcohol appropriate for ingesting. I used New Amsterdam brand vodka for these. 

Let sit in a dark, cool place like a cabinet. Shake once a day if you can and let stay for about 8 weeks. After that strain with cheese cloth or a strainer, place the liquid in a clean dry jar. Be careful that your jars are clean and dry. You can buy some tincture bottles with a dropper for easy use. 

Take up to 4 droppers or 4 tsps. a day as needed. 


I get everything that I need to make my own herbal remedies from Mountain Rose Herbs. They have high quality affordable organic products for DIY as well as already prepared herbal remedies for those who need it now and or don't want to make it yourself.

Dr. Morse | Humans are fruit eaters | Genesis 1:29 Natural Health

 
natural health

Fruits, Berries and Melons humans natural food! 

      What our medical community and governments see as "healthy" is actually nothing but a lack of medical diagnoses. A few trips to the doctor, along with some testing will fix that really good! DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT SAYING DON'T GO TO THE DOCTOR IN THE CASE OF AN EMERGENCY OR LEGITIMATE MEDICAL NEED. I am saying that you are your best advocate for your health and you know when something isn't right with your body especially if you learn what to look for and how to properly cure it. 


"Energy or the destruction of energy results from what we eat, drink, breathe, put on our skin, and from what we think and feel. These are the six ways we either make ourselves healthy, and vital, or sick and weak."

   Diseases don't just happen! Disease or what we think of a disease as being is simply our body trying to tell us something. And "disease" often times takes a lifetime or many years to develop. Obviously, the sooner you can recognize problems the sooner and easier you can cure it. It's very simple. If you are suffering from any of the thousands of health conditions that plague our societies than this is for you.

      "What you eat has a direct effect upon your health."  

Dr. Morse and many others (especially his students on YouTube) teach that a raw vegan diet that is low in protein is the way to go. You also need to avoid health food junk food like tofu, all-natural packaged foods, protein shakes, etc.. He teaches that human beings are frugivores by nature and that anything outside of that is toxic to us. This means that raw fruits, berries, and melons are our primary food. Raw veggies are also a food source for us but only to be eaten when you are in between detox fasting. Spinach, kale and green leafy veggies alike are your best choices.

Try this for a week and feel the difference! Try consuming raw fruits all day and for dinner have a nice raw spinach and veggie salad with lemon juice for dressing. Stay away from anything packaged. Keep it raw and simple! Cooking renders foods carcinogenic and also promotes acidosis in our systems. 

"Human beings are the only species that feels like we have to destroy our food before we eat it!"  

Acidosis has to do with the acid build up in our bodies and the cause of all diseases. I have learned that all cancer is are damaged cells and cells can regenerate if given the proper environment. "

There is no magic or mystery to health or disease. Disease is a natural process! When we understand how the body works, and what causes the tissues in the body to fail, we will then understand what causes disease symptoms and how to reverse it.

Dr. Morse teaches that detoxification and the regeneration of cells is the only way to true health and healing! That is what his book is all about I highly recommend that you get a hold of one. I have provided a couple links on this post for you to do just that. Also, see the YouTube links so you can learn from Dr. Morse yourself.

Here are some bullet points to help you understand the basics of what Dr. Morse is teaching...

  • Raw fruits, veggies, herbs are primary food/medicine for humans. 
  • Humans are frugivores!
  • We shouldn't destroy our food before we eat it. GO RAW! 
  • Meat and dairy are highly acid forming foods not suitable for a frugivore.
  • The cause of all illness and "disease" is acidosis.
  • Treat the cause not the symptoms.
  • Fruit makes the body alkaline, supplies the body with needed nutrients and hydration.
  • Fruits, berries, and melons detox the body and regenerate cells.
  • There is no "disease" that can't be cured!
  • There is a difference between a healthy diet and a healing one!

I hope this was a good introduction for you regarding the teachings of Dr. Robert Morse. I want to encourage you to watch his videos, get his book and just get started on your healing process. Take the week challenge that I mentioned above and feel the difference. I want to continue to do some more posts on this subject. If you have any questions please ask me in the comments of this post and I will do my best to answer or direct you to the answer. I will also do more posts on my own journey to optimal health and healing. Please like, and share with your friends. As always comments always appreciated!

Healthy Food for Humans: What Really Belongs in the Human Body?


I thought there was so much useful information in this video that will help you get started or continue on your raw vegan fruitarian diet. I am including here, in this post a summery of everything I learned watching this video, plus a lot of my own thoughts and knowledge. All you have to do is be open to this information and then implement it for best results. 

The first thing we need to remember here is, out of all the thousands of wild animal species we are the only ones who have been consuming an unnatural diet. Animals in the wild don't over eat, and they don't eat anything not natural to their species and available in their natural environments.

All natural animals eat according to their own species and all members of that species eat the same basic diet. Likewise we humans all have the same digestive tract, the same organs, and the same basic needs. Why do we think that we are all so different? And, need to eat different foods than our species would allow?

We are the only species on the planet that flavors, and spices our foods before we eat it. We are also the only species on the planet that feels we need to eat cooked foods. Now there is a lot of reasons for why we feel this way, but I am not getting into that here. Bottom line is we must eat what is designed by nature and or God for us to eat. The fact that we as a human beings are so sick is because we have become accustomed to consuming an unnatural diet. A diet not designed for us! 

So, What should you eat as a human being? 

As you have learned in the video we humans must eat a human diet. There are some things we can observe that tells us what foods our species is designed to eat. In the video Loren mentions that animals and humans only want to eat what is naturally appealing to them. He talks about how the vibrant colors of fruit makes us simply want to eat it. This is why fruit is so colorful. When rip on the tree fruit calls to us and speaks to the primitive natural side of us. Fruit is easy for a naturally fit human to obtain. And it's sweetness is something we all crave. Fruit is also easily digested for the specific digestive systems human have.

In school we are told that humans are the combo of the herbivore/carnivore species, and the word omnivore was then applied to humans. But, we simple do not have physical bodies and digestive tracts which tell us this. Think of the true herbivores you know of, such as a cow, goat, horse, rabbit, etc... Do we have the same digestive systems as they do? NO we don't. Do we graze with our heads to the ground all day long? NO we don't. Do we see grass and think this is food for me? NO we do not!

Think about the true carnivores you know of, such as a cats like lions, and tigers. Also look at the wolf, snakes and polar bears. Do we have the same digestive systems as these animals? NO. Do we find killing our food with our teeth, ripping out their arteries and drinking their blood appealing? NO, and if we do we are labeled as deranged. Wouldn't we rather pick some fruit off of a tree and eat our fill then do that? Yes we would! 

Now let's look at the animals that closely resemble us and in fact have the same digestive systems as we do. I am talking about primates. Science has told us that are closest animal cousins are in fact primates. More specifically Bonobos and chimpanzee. In fact we share 96% of our DNA with chimps and as much as 99% of the DNA that a bonobo has.

We are wrongly taught that primates are herbivores but this is just not true. Primates are actually fruit eaters. We call this frugivore, and for some reason this is a fact left out of science class. I believe that is because the powers that be do not want us to know what our true diet is. The Medical, Pharmaceutical and Animal agriculture Industries don't want us to know that the key to health and vitality is as simple as eating a fruit diet. Image how much money they would lose if we all began eating a diet specifically designed for our bodies, a diet that is designed by God to keep us as vital as Adam and Eve in the garden. Imagine how much money these capital I industries would lose if we got healthy?

Ok, back to the bonobos...

The bonobo's diet is largely fruitarian. Foraging in small groups, bonobos feast primarily on fruit, but when necessary they also eat leaves, flowers, bark, stems, roots, insect larvae, worms, crustaceans, honey, eggs, and soil. Occasionally they hunt small mammals like flying squirrels. Bonobos eat a diet natural to them from their natural environments.

Now, we are not bonobos that is why we don't eat everything that they do, although we certainly could handle it as long as our primary food was fruit. The problem is instead of eating lots of fruit and implementing a fruit based diet we as humans typically consume a junk food and animal based diet. If you take a bonobo and feed him the standard American diet he will become sick with the standard American diseases that afflicts most Americans. In fact animals in captivity fed an unnatural diet will and do in fact develop cancer, diabetes, and heart disease just like we do.

If you are a Christian you should read Gen 1:29, which outlines God's original diet for man. The diet he intended for us. The diet that was intended to sustain the optimal health and vitality Adam and Eve first enjoyed. I think you get the point. Feel free to do your own research. This makes sense to me and that is my focus. 

Junk food! 

Junk foods are foods that contain fat, complex sugars, salts, spices, natural and artificial flavoring. Also preservatives, especially chemical preservatives. For the record I do not believe we should be eating anything that has chemical preservatives, and artificial anything in it. But, even a raw vegan who consume whole plant based foods can fall into a junk food frenzy of high nut fat, highly flavored and seasoned foods. Yes there is such thing as raw vegan fruitarain junk food, and that is something I personally try to avoid. Sure those foods are great for once in awhile when you just want your food to entertain you, but if you are going for disease elimination or prevention it is best to stay off of any food that is complicated. That is also Loren's message. 

We are addicted to these complicated foods. That is why we "feel fine" or "feel better" when we eat them. This doesn't mean however that what we just ate is good for us. Food addiction is no different than an addiction to any other substance that only satisfies the craving it creates, but damages the body in the process.  In other words; When we consume a substance we are only satisfying the need, that the substance has created. It only cures the problems that it has created, ie; the call to consume it again. This can manifest as stomach grumbling, or discomfort which most people think is hunger. A headache, or just an insatiable desire to consume again. This in no way means that the substance is good for us! 

Since beginning this journey over a year ago I have learned just how addicted I am to foods. I never considered myself addicted to anything, or having an addicted personality, but going through this and eliminating everything, but fruit and simple salads, I now know that I am addicted real bad, to foods. It gets better with time, but I realize we must never feed the addiction, or it sets us back. The hardest thing about this life is getting over these addictions. But, once you have gotten off of these addicted foods, the body can then begin to cleanse and heal. 

Complicated foods are stimulants! 

Like Loren said in this video salts, flavorings like herbs, complex sugars and even proteins are stimulants. Stimulants are not good for us! Stimulants are addicting and as already mentioned only fix the problem it creates. Eating more of a food that only stimulates your body will not lead to health and will in fact lead to body breakdown from overburdening the Adrenal glans and other body systems.

A raw vegan fruitarian diet if not properly is a diet free of these stimulating foods and or only in very low quantities such as protein. We get our protein from fruits and simple salads but when we over eat we tax the system. You heard him say that when we eat more protein than we need we age and die faster. This just one reason why we should avoid concentrated complicated foods such as meat, dairy, eggs, and processed foods. Fruits, and vegetables contain everything we need in the proper balance for a human being and it is virtually impossible to over eat when you only consume fresh ripe fruits and veggies in their whole natural state.

The only way to over eat on a raw vegan fruitarian diet is to eat blended foods, dehydrated foods, and those gourmet style raw meals with all of the nuts, seeds, salts, and spices. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you will see that I often only eat whole fruit, but getting off of my daily smoothie is something that I am working on myself. I also don't do the gourmet raw meals, but I will create a blended raw dressing for my evening salads. I have been eating a little more nuts and seasoned dressings for my salads this winter for building up my energy stores, getting ready for the summer. But, my diet is always and has been for the last year and a half whole fresh raw fruit! I will do a smoothie and fresh raw fruit all day. And salads in the evening several days per week if not a little more if I have the ingredients. 

Anyway I hope you watched the video and enjoyed it as much as I did. I also hope you enjoyed my comments and summery here. Feel free to leave a friendly comment. If you have any questions and or would like support while you begin changing your diet to a raw vegan fruitarian diet please contact me or leave a comment via my Facebook page. 

Until next time God bless and happy fruit eating!

Arnold Ehret FREE books and more!

arnold ehret books
Prof. Arnold Ehret authored several books on diet, detoxification, fruit based diet, fasting, food combining, health, longevity, naturopathy, physical culture and vitalism. He was a founder of vitalism in dietetics, and pioneer of Ehretism. Ehret believed that white blood cells were caused by consuming mucus-forming foods, and as waste materials, poison the blood. Ehret also maintained that new tissue was built primarily from simple sugars in
fruits. 
While some of his information may be outdated most of it is still very timeless information that is even more needed today than in Ehret's day. I have recently been learning from this great mind of the early part of the twentieth century and am so blessed to have come across his works. I find Dr. Morse's teachings to be that of Ehret's but with much more detailed up to date information. Both men are highly regarded Naturopaths and a source of invaluable life saving information.

What I eat to regenerate my body!


We are taught to eat to live, but that is all wrong!

We must not simply eat to live because even a diet of crap will keep us alive. We must eat to REGENERATE! But most of us that eat dead crap foods are eating to degenerate. This is why we see degenerative symptoms of disease running rampant through out our culture. In this video Hilde explains it beautifully.

A must watch and implement...

Signs of Adrenal Gland Weakness

       These are common symptoms of Adrenal Gland Weakness. You may, or may not be, or have ever experienced all of these symptoms. Each individuals weaknesses will manifest in one way or another, if you are experiencing any of these it is a good idea to get to strengthening the adrenal system. Most people have Adrenal Weakness due to the The Standard American Diet, which consists of highly acid producing, and disease inducing foods.
adrenal glands
Adrenal Glands


Adrenal Gland Weakness.


  • Low adrenal gland (medulla) function causes low blood pressure from inefficient neurotransmitters and starts a process of nerve disorders, breathing problems, and heart arrhythmias. 


  • Low adrenal gland (cortex) function causes insufficient steroid production leading to acidosis and inflammation.


In Females:


  • Ovarian cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, uterine cancer
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Conception problems
  • Miscarriage 
  • Menstrual bleeding problems
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Osteoporosis
  • Unchecked inflammation



In Males…


  • Prostate cancer
  • Erection problems
  • Testosterone dominance
  • Prostatitis


In Females and Males…


  • Scleroderma
  • Bursitis and arthritis
  • Spinal and pelvic inflammation
  • Lower back weakness
  • Sciatica
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney and bladder weakness



You can begin to see how inflammation is developed in the body through diet and hormone imbalance (from glandular weakness) This inflammation leads to tissue failure and tissue death. This is why it is essential that our endocrine gland system functions properly and remain in balance. When the endocrine glands become hypo (under) or hyper (over,) active this creates many disease symptoms.

Our Adrenals are extremely important! This is because they produce neurotransmitters, which are essential for brain and nerve function. These include epinephrine (adrenaline), norepinephrine, and dopamine. All these affect our sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system (the two divisions of the autonomic nervous system), turning nerve responses on or off. This affects almost all tissues in the body, including heart, vascular system, intestines, skin and kidneys.

Low blood pressure (systolic under 118) is always an indicator of adrenal weakness, and at least %50 of high blood pressure cases reflect adrenal (medulla) weakness as well. A healthy blood pressure is 120-130 systolic (top number) and 60-70 diastolic (bottom number).

The second important part about the adrenal glands is in the cortex (outer portion) that produces cortical-type steroids or hormones. These hormones include corticoids (cortisol and cortisone for carbohydrate utilization); aldosterone (regulating our electrolytes, sodium and potassium.; estradiol (an estrogen); and progestins (including progesterone).

Many of these steroids act as anti-inflammatory compounds, which are vital to combating anti-inflammatory processes within the body. These steroids affect muscle, nerve, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular tissues.

Cortisol aids in the conversion of fat and protein to glucose. Also cortisol is one of the adrenal glands (glucocorticoid) steroids that mediates inflammation. Catabolic breakdown processes in the body generally cause acidosis, hense inflammation in your body especially the GI tract. This damage stimulates the adrenal glands to increase cortisol production, which can cause further inflammation.

The Cortisol is what effects the blood pressure. It affects the muscles, heart, and it can also lower the TSH further affecting your thyroid hormone production. Our thyroid is responsible for our calcium utilization. Caffeine soda, and tea (the tea leaf kind with caffeine) enhances the production of excessive cortisol. Because of that cortisol also affects the aging process, promotes osteoporosis, etc..

These problems especially inflammation which in another word is really just acidosis is caused by a lifetime or long period of time of consuming acidosis promoting foods mentioned above. Acidosis and inflammation is essentially the same thing!

Remember your body can eliminate the toxins, acid and reduce or eliminate the inflammation but you have to allow it too. You have to do the things necessary to help your body and buckle up for the ride. In my opinion using medications, having surgery or procedures WILL NOT GET TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM! ACIDOSIS AND INFLAMMATION WILL REMAIN AND YOU WILL CONTINUE DOWN A ROAD OF MORE ILLNESS NOT LESS.

Doctors don’t know what I am telling you and what I have learned from Dr. Morse. This is not in the realm of medicine, which only treats symptoms, but not the cause of the symptoms. This information is in the realm of the science of how our bodies works and what our symptoms tell us. Listen to your body and read your symptoms.

If you think you have Adrenal Weakness you may want to get started healing and strengthening right away. To get you started by reading An Introduction to Fruitarian Living.

The Power of Fasting to Heal your Body

Fasting is a Natural and a Powerful Tool for Rebuilding Health!

   Have you ever felt like just not eating? Skipping breakfast, or any meal during the day? Well that is your body telling you that it's time for a fast, even if that is a quick fast of skipping breakfast. I know over the course of my life I have felt this way. I have always known a little about the power of fasting, but in the last few months of being raw vegan Fruitarian, I have learned and experienced so much more about fasting. 

In addition to eating a raw vegan Fruitarian diet I like to incorporate fasting techniques into my daily routines. Fasting is a natural practice that unfortunately has been kinda lost in our modern over consumed, eat and drink until you drop society. Fasting is found in nature, and is a common dietary and spiritual practice in all of the main religions of the world. 

Fasting can help your body in the healing process, get you centered with the earth, as well as bring you closer to God, or the spiritual realm. If you are a christian, or religious person you may be familiar with fasting practices used in Christianity, or any of the other main religions. Jesus taught the benefits of fasting on a spiritual level in the act of casting out demons. When his disciples couldn't cast out a particular demon, they came to Jesus. Jesus told them "this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting" Matthew 17:21. In this case prayer wasn't enough, and fasting needed to be incorporated. Why? Because fasting separates us from the world and aligns us with God in a closer more intimate way.

The "demons" that develop in us as disease are the same way. All to often when prayer, positive thoughts, mind set, and a standard healthy diet just isn't enough, fasting needs to be included. Fasting opens up our cells, and our body systems! It helps us eliminate waste properly by opening up the bowels, and the kidneys. It also gives the body a break from digestion in order to focus on healing! 

This works because when we fast we are using stored energy, or the energy that is consumed. This stored energy is then what supplies our healing! 

What is Fasting?

Fasting is any kind of act that requires you to abstain from something for a short, or long period of time. It is the act of giving up something that is either not good for you, or something desired that you would like to detach from. It is also the act of consuming only one type of food, liquid, or even air for a short, or longer period of time. There are many ways to fast, and all of them are beneficial in their own unique way. I recommend including many types of fasting throughout your day, and or week.

In this article I will list the different types of fasting and explain why it is good to include it as a part of your healing journey. I will list them in order of their difficulty, or according to how much you are eliminating during each particular fast. When we fast we are giving our system a break!

There are many ways to do a fast, but there are basically two forms of fasting. One is, forced fasting, and the other conscious fasting. We have all experienced a forced fast. You know those days when you feel sick, and just don't want to eat. This may last a couple days, or just a few hours. This is the body's own mechanism to divert much needed energy from digestion to the immune, lymphatic, and endocrine systems. Fasting gives our body energy to detox, and expel the intruding element, mucous, and or congestion. It is important to listen to your body, and not to force your self to eat when you really don't want to, or can't.

Conscious fasting is a fast that we choose to do in order to heal our bodies. It is a self imposed fast that will build self discipline, and self confidence. Two extremely important attributes to develop if you want to be on your road to natural healing. Both forms of fasting can be boiled down to "energy management." If you want to heal a problem in your body then you must learn how to use fasting to divert energy from digestion, and metabolism, to detoxification and healing.

Most of the foods that we eat in society today rob our bodies of energy instead of supplying it. Health and vitality is energy, and disease is lack of energy. Fasting is a way that the body can rest from extensive digestive, and metabolic issues. Fasting allows your body to use its energy to clean itself of toxins, and acid waste.

Fasting also allows you to just be, and experience life without all of the distractions in society. Once you have eliminated everything that is hurting you, making you feel ill, or distracting you from nature, and the spiritual realm, all that is left is you and God. This is why prayer and meditation can also be an important part of any fasting program. This will also help in that first few days when it seems really hard to fast, especially if you still have life responsibilities to tend to. Any fast after three days gets easier. 

Stay strong and disciplined! 

Also during fasting remember why you are doing it. Get to a place of peace and gratitude that you are doing the very best for your health. You don't need all of the distractions, and cooked foods that taste good but ultimately don't get you the health that you want and deserve. I know it's hard at first but with time it gets easier, and you will soon be able to do longer fasts with little to no desire for cooked foods, or anything outside of your fast.


Raw Food Fasting

While most people in the world, the west in particular consume a lot of animal products there are those of us who have chosen what we know to be a healthier way. It is no question that a diet rich in raw fruits, veggies, greens, seeds, and nuts is much healthier than the Standard American Diet of meat, eggs, cheese, fast foods, and processed foods! But something that I think most people don't consider is that a raw diet is a type of long term fasting. Those who go raw choose to do it either long term, or in short term fasting days throughout the week.

When you eliminate all of those Standard American Foods, of animal products and cooked foods from your diet, you are fasting. You have chosen to abstain from foods that you may desire because of taste, but are keeping you sick, and unhealthy. When you do this you are also fasting from the fast food industry because you aren't buying their food. This type of diet is also super healthy so you are limiting your interactions with the medical industries as well. 

Raw food fasting is a great way to get the vitamins, and minerals your body needs. In fact most people are lacking in essential vitamins, and minerals that you get from fresh raw foods. This type of fasting is also super high in fiber so it will clean you out. I highly recommend this type of diet fasting as a way to get your health back, and eliminating your need for cooked and processed foods.

Cooking foods, like veggies, and fruit kills the nutrients, and minerals that are essential to optimal health. Consuming cooked foods can promote an immune response in the body by elevating your white blood cell count. They are also harder for your body to digest, and produce acid waste in the body as a result. Not to mention cooked foods contain lots of salt, pepper, and other stimulants like that. Dead foods like meat, dairy and eggs are high in artery clogging fats, and cholesterol, lack fiber, and is just a negativity that you don't want in your body!
natural health
Fruitarian Living

Even if you don't want to give up your animal products just yet, raw food fasting is essential to your overall health, and well being. To do this simply begin by having a raw meal every day for starters. Start every day with a fruit breakfast, and end every day with a nice big salad with lots of raw veggies. I always recommend that your diet consist of at least 75% raw fruits, veggies and greens.

Going raw is also a great diet fast for transitioning into a more extreme form of fasting like fruit, and juice fasting. If you want to help your body heal itself, then going on a fast of only raw fruits, greens and veggies is a great place to begin. Do this for a time before going into fruit alone fasting. From there you can do juice fasting. Also including periods of dry fasting, and water fasting. More on the the last two in a minute. 


Fruit Fasting 

The first type of fasting that I talk a lot about in my healing journey is the fruit fast. This is a fast and a diet where you only eat fruit. You have given up all other foods in order to ONLY consume fruit. This is beneficial, as I have said in other articles as well. It allows your body to have a rest from all of the hard to digest foods that may be keeping you sick. Fruit is a naturally alkalizing food that aids the body in the removal of toxins, and acid waste. It is also a fast that does not include veggies since veggies, and greens do slow down your detox process a bit.

We also do not eat nuts and seeds on a fruit fast because these items tend to be hard to digest. The point is to give the body easy things to digest, and eliminate. Nuts, and seeds can be apart of a healthy raw diet, but not during a detox when you are trying to heal.

Humans are Frugivore!

Fruit is food that is specifically designed by nature for humans, so I highly recommend the Fruitarian diet. Humans are frugivore, or fruitarian. This means the proper food for a humans is fruit. Fruit fasts are more in harmony with our physiology, and human design. Eat organic when ever possible, or wash produce thoroughly. Pay attention to food combining and just love the fruit! When we fast on fruit our body receives all of the vitamins and minerals essential to the detoxification process, and acid waste elimination.

The type of fruit you choose is also essential to what you are tying to accomplish with your health. Astringent fruits will help with kidney filtration, where as your denser fruits add more calories, and bulk. Grape and lemon juice fasting has been seen to eliminate cancer! If you are just beginning your fruit diet fasting, you will just want to eat lots of fruit so you can transition towards the mono meals, and mono fasting. Bananas are a great fruit to have on hand, and eat while you are getting used to being a frugivore.


Mono Meals

In your fruit fasting diet plan you will want to begin to consume mono meals. That is a fruit meal which consists of only one type of fruit. This technique is better on the digestive process, and allows the body to take a break having to digest many different fruits at one time.

Remember even though fruit is super easy to digest, some fruit is easier than others. We can get gas, and or bloating by combining fruits. Especially if you are healing from digestive issues. Try to incorporate mono meals, and mono fasting (see below) into your day.

You will feel the difference! Remember to buy seasonal fruits, berries, and melons. Growing your own or getting organic is even better. But get the fruit in and eat lots of it!

Juice Fasting 

This is high level fasting that gives your GI tract, and digestive tract a nice rest. Juice fasting like the fruit fasting consists of a lot of fruit, but many like to incorporate vegetable juices in that as well. Juice fasting is also high energy fasting that moves lymphatic waste nicely, and offers much needed cleansing from toxic build up. Grapes and lemons especially juice, blend nicely, and is consider the tumor buster!

The best way to start your juice fasting is to get a quality juicer. If you don't have a juicer please check out my kitchenware page for suggestions on which one to get. My Vitamix is handy for making my grapes, and lemon juice, and I like that the pulp stays in the juice. The good thing about a juicer is you can pack a lot of fruit, and veggie punch into a small glass. Just one nice size glass of juice can consist of six carrots, and four oranges for example. Imaging if you ate all of that whole? This is one reason why it's so powerful.

I suggest that you first go raw vegan Fruitarian for a while, before doing juice fasting. Juice fasting is a powerful detox that requires some initial fasting detoxification first. Juice fasting allows toxins, and acid waste to leave the body rather quickly. When this happens you may experience a toxic load as the toxins are leaving your body. So you can lessen that load by starting with the less extreme fasting programs such as going raw vegan Frutiarian. In certain cases it is essential to start with juice fasting. Some people can't digest whole fruit, and need something more available to supply the cells. For example an individual who is having trouble digesting, and assimilating their foods should start with a juice fast.



Mono Fruit Fasting 

We mentioned eating mono meals already. Mono fasting is a technique in which you consume one type of fruit for a longer period of time. For example watermelon fasting is great for cleansing the systems, and getting lymphatic movement. It is also very hydrating, and it tastes great! And grapes and lemon fasting has been known, and observed by Dr Morse N.D. in ridding the body of cancers of various kinds. Mono fasting is typically only one fruit, but I will often use lemon for example. Grapes and lemon combination is known as a tumor buster!

Mono fasting can be used as a juice fast as well. Simply consume your mono fruit in juice form. You can use a juicer or blender like a Vitamix depending on what fruit you have chosen. So, simple yet so incredibly powerful for your health! When we combine this type of fasting along with our herbal formulas magic happens. The juice cleanses, and detoxifies while the herbs strengthen and balance the systems.


Water Fasting 

Another type of fasting is your water fasting. This is an ultimate type of fasting which consists of going a period of time consuming only water. The water should be purified using reverse osmosis or distilled. At this level all of your digestive energy is given to the immune, lymphatic, and glandular systems. A water fast creates a high level of body cleansing and purging of everything unnecessary. Our body, which is super smart, will focus on removing stored toxins, mucus and inflammation.

You shouldn't do any water fasting until you have energized the body through raw food fasting, and fruit fasting. First you must build up the energy stores inside of you. Because this is the energy that the body will use to heal during a water fast. Dr. Morse in his book The Detox Miracle Source Book says, "I do not recommend a water only fast for highly depleted, and weakened individuals, especially those with cancer."

Water fasting can be dangerous in individuals with depleted energy stores, or very weakened systems due to illness, or malnourishment. After the individual is built up with fruits, and veggies water fasting would be appropriate. 


Dry Fasting

In dry fasting we consume nothing. If we stop, and think about it we start a dry fast every night when we go to bed, and sleep. In fact it is good to go long periods of time without consuming anything. I recommend that you incorporate 10-15 hours of dry fasting in a 24 hour day. Simply STOP consuming 4 hours before you go to bed, continue while you are sleeping until late morning. Don't start consuming again until 2-4 hours after you wake. Go as long as you can up to 24 hours, but listen to your body, what do you feel? How is your body handling the dry fast? Don't try to do a twenty four hour dry fast until you have worked up to it, and only if you are not depleted already as mentioned with the water fasting.

Break your dry fast with a nice fruit juice, or herbal tea such as Dr. Morse's Heal All Tea. Never break a fast with heavy hard to digest foods. Always go for the easiest to digest foods first, in this case a fruit juice. Dry fasting opens the body up to the release of toxins, and acid waste. Kidneys begin to filter better, bowels move with ease in the morning, and in many cases parasites are expelled! You can do a dry fast for up to 24 hours, but doing that is something you will need to work up to. Ten to fifteen hours nightly is a great way to start incorporate dry fasting.

As always listen to your body because it will tell you when you need to stop, and or begin your fasting. For example my urinary tract is very sensitive. I can do a dry fast for 15 hours but sometimes I have to go less. I start feeling the dehydration hit my urinary tract, and there is burning, tingling and if I don't drink water it will feel like a full blown UTI. I am looking forward to doing some kidney and bladder herbs to help with this. But, thankfully this doesn't happen very often anymore. Just listening to my body helps me to know what I need to do, and what I need to modify in my healing journey.


Fasting makes you a more disciplined spiritual person! 

Fasting, whether it is with fruits, veggies, water, or nothing at all is a way to get back to basics, eliminating the foods that distract our bodies from vitality! It is also a way to eliminate other things, and habits that hinder our spirituality, and living the life we dream. Through fasting we can become more in-tune, and centered with the earth, and with God. Fasting also makes us more disciplined individuals who can say NO, to all of the food, and substances that are keeping us away from true health, and happiness.

Sit quietly, in a quiet room for a moment, close your eyes, try not to think about anything worldly, just lift your heart, and mind up to the heavens. In this moment you are not eating anything, you're not doing anything, but thinking about God/Spirit, and the energy around you. You're not on your phone, computer, or other device. You're not speaking, or hearing anything distracting in this moment. What do you feel? After you have eliminated everything else, what is left? It is you and God, nothing more! This is the spiritual side of fasting :) This is also a great time to speak to God in prayer because it is just you and him.

What you choose to fast from is your choice on a daily basis. I recommend that you incorporate every type of fasting protocol throughout your day. Below I have listed a daily recommendation for how I incorporate every type of fasting throughout my day, and week.

  • Dry fasting for night time, and morning hours. I do 7:00 pm - 10:00 am every day, or longer if I feel that my body is responding well to it. I sometimes do short dry fasts simply by skipping a meal and not consuming anything during those times my body is telling me this is something that I need to do. You can also do this with a water fast.
  • I typically break my dry fast with a mason jar full of fruit juice, or smoothie with my herbs in it. I don't down it lol! But drink on it for the next half hour, or so. But, I also love to use lemon water with some of my tinctured herbs in it, or cranberry water with some of my herbs as well. Another option is to break it with a hot cup of herbal tea. I use Dr. Morse's Heal All Tea with some of my other herbs that I take.
  • I then eat mono fruit meals through out the day as needed. I eat when I'm hungry! Some more, some less it just depends on what my body is telling me, and what fruits are available to me at the time. I rarely mix my fruits, unless it is in a smoothie, or juice that I made in my juicer. But if I am eating whole fruit I do prefer mono meals.
  • Other than my Heal All Tea mixture with lemon that I drink, I rarely drink pure water anymore. This is why it is good to take a break from herbs, foods, etc.. and just drink water. Sometime I just have water and don't worry about eating, or taking my herbs. It is a good idea to flush the system with a nice water fast to flush the system and give every thing a rest. I recommend taking a day, or more if your body is telling you it can handle it, to relax and just exist on water alone. Like I said you can't do this more than a week. 

In Conclusion


There is a great power, and simplicity in a raw vegan fruitarian diet. It is a way to get back to basics starting with the simplest of foods. Our body wants to heal, wants to be free of illness. We are not designed for sickness, unhappiness, and pain. It is our diet of hard to digest negative energy foods that is keeping us stuck in an unnatural state of illness. Also as a society we are over consumers in what we eat, and buy on a daily basis. fasting is a great way to put every back into perspective. It is time to take a step back, and reclaim the health that was given to us in the first place. 

Dry fasting and water fasting are definitely something that takes practice, and you will need to work up to longer fasts. With any new diet program, or life style change you will need practice, discipline, determination, and the will do be truly healthy. It may take awhile before all of this becomes second nature to you. Be patient with yourself, listen to your body, and just get started!
