When you are ready to start your three-day cleansing ritual, closely follow the detailed protocol given here. Begin the routine upon rising every morning. You don’t have to perform all the procedures at the exact same time, but be sure to have all three meals and two snacks plus all servings of the Green Detox Drink and at least six cups of water. You’ll need to prepare a fresh batch of the Green Detox Drink (recipe follows) on each of the three days.

Day One: Body Detox

This day you focus on the whole-body rejuvenation. This is the most taxing day, as you will be doing your deep Green Liver Flush.

Upon rising: Drink one glass (8 ounces) of mineral/filtered water.

Before shower: Brush your dry skin with a natural bristle brush. Starting at your feet, brush in circular motions toward your heart. Spend at least one minute on each leg. Now move on to your arms. Brush from your fingertips, again toward your heart. Spend at least one minute on each arm. Now brush from your back toward your stomach. Do not dry brush your neck, breasts, or face. When you are done brushing, a shower using plain olive, grape seed, or jojoba oil as a body cleanser. Gently pat dry, not rub, your body with a clean towel.

Throughout the day: Drink one glass of the Green Detox Drink every two hours. The recipe provides enough drinks for the whole day. Spend your day doing relaxing and thoughtful things such as reading, tending to your garden, playing with children, walking or shopping for eco-friendly things. Your breakfast, lunch, and snacks should be vegetarian, without any dairy, refined wheat, or sugar.

After dinner: Prepare for the Green Liver Flush.

The Green Detox Drink

1 organic lemon

1 organic orange

1 tablespoon maple syrup

½-inch piece fresh ginger root, chopped

2 tablespoons virgin olive oil

1 clove organic garlic, chopped

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon chopped organic or local parsley

Yield:
1 quart

The Green Detox Drink is thick, nourishing, and loaded with vitamins, but it is not a meal replacement. However, you might feel quite full after a glass. It tastes like a thick orange juice with a bit of a kick. The drink is very easy to prepare (five to six minutes total, including peeling and chopping), and the ingredients are quite affordable, too.Note: The Green Detox Drink is not compatible with dairy of any kind.

1. Peel the lemon and orange and cut them into chunks. Place all the remaining ingredients into a blender with the lemon and orange. Blend for 10 minutes. The mixture should be quite thick.

2. Dilute mixture with the water of your choice to make 1 quart and store it in the refrigerator.

Green Liver Flush

This is a traditional East European technique now making news among holistic healers. It is effective in removing fat-soluble toxins, such as pesticide residues, from the body. The effectiveness and safety of conducting a home liver flush has been debated among medical professionals. If you have any liver or gallbladder problems or other health concerns, you should consult your doctor before doing this procedure.

Here’s what you need: the juice from five medium-sized lemons, a slightly heated bottle of virgin olive oil, a hot water bottle, and a shot glass for measuring. Arrange everything, including this book and the TV remote if desired, on a coffee table so you won’t have to jump up and down too often. It’s important not to perform the liver cleansing when you are home alone, in case you feel dizzy or weak in the bathroom. Folk medicine recommends starting the flush at 7 PM.

Make sure you follow these steps precisely:

1. Fill the water bottle with hot water, place it on your upper right abdomen, and relax for thirty minutes.

2. Drink one shot (2 tablespoons) of lemon juice.

3. Wait fifteen minutes, then drink one shot (2 tablespoons) of olive oil.

4. Alternate shots of lemon juice and olive oil every fifteen minutes until you are out of lemon juice. Keep the hot water bottle on your right-hand side!

Be ready for a massive bowel movement in an hour or two. Don’t be afraid to see some extraordinary things coming out of you!You may even pass small gallstones and tar-colored goo, which signals that your liver was crippling under the weight of toxins.

As you finish in the bathroom, take a quick shower, massaging your body and hair with grape seed oil, then washing it off with your regular shampoo. Go to bed.

The classic liver flush routine prescribes an enema next morning to complete the cleansing process, but this is truly optional.

Day Two: Hair Detox

This day you’ll take really good care of your hair. Relax and enjoy the newfound sense of lightness and purity in your right side!

Upon rising: Drink one 8-ounce glass of mineral/filtered water.

In the shower: Give yourself a head massage with almond or jojoba oil. Stand on a clean towel to minimize the risk of slipping on oil drops! Pour some oil into your palms and rub them to warm the oil. Rub the oil into your scalp in circular motions. When you have saturated your whole scalp and all your hair with oil, apply stronger pressure to stimulate circulation and help the oil penetrate deeper into the hair follicles. Spend not less than five minutes massaging your head. Shower and wash your hair as usual.
