MASTER CLEANSE DAY 3
- Salt water flush first thing in the morning on empty stomach.
- Lemonade (fresh lemons, maple syrup, purified water and cayenne pepper)
- Mint tea and water
- Herbal laxative before bed
HEALTH MEASURE = I am feeling MUCH BETTER this morning!! Husband and I both have a lingering headache… Though he may not admit it, his chronic coughing is reducing (evidenced by his ability to take care of the horse without hacking upon his return). My gut is almost clear after second salt water flush, actually having sloughed out one “mucoid plaque” already! Depending on what one believes, these plaques are myth.
A “mucoid plaque (or mucoid cap or rope) is a pseudoscientific term used by some alternative medicine advocates to describe what is claimed to be a combination of harmful mucus-like material and food residue that they say coats the gastrointestinal tract of most people. The term was coined by Richard Anderson, a naturopath and entrepreneur, who sells a range of products that claim to “cleanse” the body of such purported plaques.”Wikipedia
I KNOW THE DEBATE over the existence of mucoid plaques… My degree would have me follow the teachings of western medicine… HOWEVER, embarking down that path with my fibromyalgia (FMS) had me taking a slew of prescription medications that not only bandaged the condition (western medicine would have you believe there is no cure for FMS) but ultimately resulted in misdiagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS). My life experience (and belief in self-healing and naturopathy) has taught me that western medicine prescription therapy is in its infancy and pushed me to continue to learn what has been known for 1000s of years (how our bodies react with what comes from the earth). That belief/statement is in NO WAY suggesting you should not follow your doctor’s recommendations for treatment of whatever ails you!! Can’t fix a broken leg with a mint leaf, ya’ know?
