In this excerpt, from chapter 9 “Lymph System”, Uphoff shows you how to love your lymph system by outlining an effective three-day lymph cleanse recipe.

Three-Day Lymph Cleanse Recipe

This cleanse is incredibly effective if you’ve been following the Revitalizing Diet and have experienced a thorough bowel cleanse within the past month. To move excess mucus from the intestines, add this flush to the end of your bowel cleanse.

Three days is considered the minimum time it takes to flush out lymph ves­sels and nodes throughout the body. For the week prior, stay on a vegan (no animal products), flourless, sugar-free, soy-free diet. One or two days before the flush, eat only raw fruit, seeds, nuts, sprouts, and vegetables. Choose one juice you wish to stay with for the full three days; apple, grape or carrot are recommended for their alkalinizing effect. The only other juice you’ll be drinking during the cleanse is prune juice. Liquids should be at room tem­perature or warmer.

Below is the protocol for each of the three days:

Upon rising drink one glass of water, followed by eight to ten ounces of prune juice with the juice of one lemon (to promote bowel movement). Sip this slowly (“chew” it so it mixes well with your saliva), then slowly drink alternate glasses of your chosen juice (fresh-pressed is best) and filtered water all day long until you have consumed as close to a gallon of juice and one gallon of water as possible. You may wish to add water and / or lemon juice to each glass of juice to reduce sweetness. In addition, mix together or take each separately 1 to 3 times a day:

• 1 tablespoon oil of wheat germ, flax seed, or borage
• 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
• 1 teaspoon kelp or dulse powder
• 1/4 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
• 1 tablespoon of organic blackstrap molasses can be taken if desired

This is a miracle recipe Karin, I tried this recipe for 2 days along with and lost 25 IBS in 2 days. I am shocked and surprised, though I would not recommend a speedy weight loss to anyone therefore I'll do this after a month. I have also educated my friends about your content along with the same pill and they too noticed a significant change :)
