Diet and Detoxification

Diet

The prescribed diets vary from patient to patient, ranging from nearly vegetarian to diets requiring red meat 2-3 times a day. All patients must eat organic foods, prepare fresh vegetable juice to drink, and stop eating processed foods such as white flour and white sugar. Coffee and alcohol must also be discontinued.

if you have been living on "fast" food and microwaveable frozen items from the grocery, you may find food preparation on this program to be time-consuming, but adherence to the prescribed diet is critical for success. View the time as an investment in your health.

Detoxification

On this therapy, some patients develop muscle aches and pains, malaise, or other “flu-like” symptoms. These symptoms may result from release of waste materials and stored toxins as the body's repair processes work. “Detoxification” refers to procedures such as the coffee enema, which are believed to enhance liver function and in turn, the processing and excretion of metabolic wastes. The coffee enemas are done twice daily, and most patients find they feel better with them. They are beneficial and critically important, we believe, for all patients, as the removal of these metabolic wastes is important for the healing process. (A more detailed discussion can be found in an article by Dr. Isaacs; click here to review.)

The treatment protocol has three parts: diet, supplements, and detoxification. Patients must comply with all three areas of the treatment for the greatest chance of success.
