The formulas, teas and recommendations listed on this page are available from a wide variety of sources and are listed here as a convenience. The Kidney Cleansing Tea and the Liver/Gallbladder Flush are the most important for the average person, who should do them at least once, if not twice, a year. They are very beneficial in promoting general health and well-being and are highly recommended. As with most health related items, please consult your physician before beginning or ending any program or course of treatments, whether recommended on this web site or anywhere else. (We have to say that to stay legal. Do yourself a favor and, if you do nothing else for your health, do the Liver/Gallbladder Flush and Kidney Cleanse.)
Kidney Cleansing Tea
Helps dissolves all obstructions in kidneys for more efficient functioning. In 10 cups of pure water soak 2 oz each of Hydrangea, Gravel Root, Marshmallow Root, Fo-Ti. Soak for 4 hours or overnight. Heat to boiling then simmer for 20 minutes. Use a glass pot if available. Boil 4 bunches of fresh parsley in 1 quart of water for 3 minutes. Pour in with herbal tea. Strain out herbs from the tea, put in empty pot and add 6 cups water. Boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain and pour this tea into first batch. Add 8 oz pure Black Cherry Concentrate. Divide into 3 containers and freeze 2 of them. (1 container is for 7 days). Keep 1 container in refrigerator. Every day mix 1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin with 1 cup tea and drink throughout the day. Take these supplements: Ginger capsules (1each meal), Uva Ursi capsules (1 with breakfast, 2 with supper), Vitamin B6 250mg once daily, Magnesium Oxide 300mg once daily. Drink the tea for 3 weeks. To avoid making new obstructions abstain from drinking tea and cocoa and phosphated beverages (most soda pops). This kidney cleanse should be done twice a year.
Blood Purifying Tea
12 cups water, 4 tbsp. Echinacea Augustifolia, 1 tbsp. Licorice Root, 1 tsp. Chaparral.
Bring 3 cups water & Licorice to full boil, turn to low heat, wait 10 minutes, add other herbs, wait 10 minutes, turn off heat. Strain and store in refrigerator. Before drinking add 3 parts water to 1 part tea. To increase sweetness add more Licorice. To decrease bitterness reduce the Chaparral.
This regimen causes the gallbladder to squeeze out most of its stones and sludge into the intestines. These are what obstructs the normal bile flow from the liver, through the gallbladder, and into the intestines to mix with and digest food. Normal bile flow is essential for digestion and liver purity. Needed: 4 tablespoon Epsom Salt, 1/2 cup virgin olive oil, 1 large pink grapefruit, unsweetened apple juice, Psyllium husk powder, 1 straw. Choose a day for the cleanse that will allow you to rest the next day. The day before the cleanse drink plenty of water and limit your intake of animal protein and food made mostly of flour.
Day of Cleanse: Take no unnecessary medicines and vitamins. Drink only diluted apple juice with Psyllium husks mixed in, or eat a light breakfast or lunch (no fat, oil, or animal protein).
2 PM No more solid food. The diluted apple juice should not have Psyllium husks in it. Mix Epsom salt in 3 cups water. Stir and store in refrigerator. This makes 4 servings of salt water.
6 PM Drink one serving of saltwater. To improve taste add 1/8 teaspoon vitamin C powder. Remove the olive oil and grapefruit from the refrigerator.
8 PM Drink another serving of salt water. Get all your pre-bed tasks done.
9:45 PM Pour 1/2 cup olive oil into a pint jar. Juice the grapefruit and add 2/3 cup of its strained juice to the olive oil. You can add the juice of 1 lemon to enhance the taste. Close the jar and shake until watery.
10 PM Using the straw to sip the mixture, drink as much of it as you can within 5 minutes. Lie down flat on your back with your head elevated. Stay motionless for 20 minutes.
11 PM Drink diluted apple juice with Psyllium husks mixed in. (Helpful, but not mandatory step)
Morning Drink a serving of salt water. If you have nausea or indigestion then wait until it leaves before you drink this serving.
2 hours later Drink last serving of salt water. 2 hours later Drink apple juice or other fruit juice.
1/2 hour later Eat some fruit. 1 hour later Eat a light meal.
Hopefully some time during the day after the cleanse you will get diarrhea. When you do, look in the toilet for the gallstones or sludge. The stones will float if they contain much cholesterol. Most people will feel a bit sickly for a couple days afterwards so you’ll need to plan to take it easy. You can repeat this flush every 2 weeks until you no longer see stones in the toilet. Everyone should do this twice a year following the initial series of flushings.
Recommendations for CFIDS people
Take the following supplements (even during device usage). Don’t use a multi-vitamin.
Vit C 500mg 2x daily (or Megafood 250mg 1x daily) Zinc (chelated) 25mg daily with breakfast
Vit B Complex 25mg 2x daily with first two meals Magnesium Malate 152mg 3x daily or
Vit E 200-400IU 2x daily Magnesium Orotate 400mg with brkfst
Acidophilus Calcium(chelated) 1000mg 1-2 hrs pre-bed
Seed Oil caps of Black Currant or Flax Adrenal Glandular
L-Carnitine 500mg each meal Thyroid glandular
Multi-mineral with trace minerals
After finishing Black Box usage take Echinacea Extract 15 drops 3x daily to purify the lymph fluid. Also take Panax Ginseng to stimulate metabolism (if you aren’t hypoglycemic), and 30mg daily CoQ10 for energy, and Beta Carotene 10,000IU daily (25,000IU for smokers).
If you still have a lot of fatigue after Black Box (Pulser or Zapper) usage then you might consider getting tested for presence of excess heavy metals in your body. Analytical Research Labs can do a laboratory hair analysis of your body’s levels of 13 major minerals and 6 heavy metals for $55. Just send payment plus 2 tbsp. of hair (from the nape of your neck) in a plain paper container to ARL, 8650 N 22nd Ave, Phoenix AZ 85021. Included will be an interpretation of your mineral levels and supplement recommendations that can slowly correct imbalances. For an extra $25 they will include a personal diet plan for you based on the results. Subnormal ratios of sodium to magnesium and potassium to calcium definitely cause adrenal & thyroid underactivity. Also, Tides Of Life (address 2 paragraphs below) can analyze a hair sample for levels of heavy metals and chemicals for $35, and levels of gland and organ toxicity for $70. Research reveals that 40% of CFS people have heavy metal toxicity (primarily aluminum, lead, and mercury) and 77% of them show definite improvement by cleansing it out. Of course, metal dental fillings should be replaced by composites to keep from continuing to absorb mercury from them. Hal Huggins book “Its All In Your Head” tells the correct way for your dentist to do this to prevent getting a high mercury exposure during filling removal. To remove heavy metals you can take Chlorella (tablets or powder for 3-6 months) and rebalance your mineral levels. Chemical toxicity can be cleansed out slowly by taking Blue Green Algae from Klamath Lake, such as the E3Live Algae.
You can test yourself for food allergies that can sap you of energy. Every morning before rolling out of bed or stretching much, feel your pulse by your Adam’s apple and count it for 60 seconds. Then get up, rinse your mouth with water, and eat or drink something you normally take every week. Don’t take a belly full of it. Don’t bathe with hot water or do vigorous exercise. In 30-60 minutes recline for 5 minutes and then test your pulse again. If it’s 6 or more beats per minute more than your morning pulse, this indicates a food allergy and you should avoid the food. The above technique tests only for immediate response allergies. Some allergies take 24 hours to manifest and do not affect the pulse. To test for these you need to add a new food or supplement every 3rd day. Notice how you feel and avoid anything that makes you feel worse.
Parasitic Worm Infestations
For killing the worms of visible size use Green Hull Black Walnut Extract (explained in the Q&A section). Microscopic size parasites are called Protozoans. These infections are very common with CFIDS. Main symptoms are watery stools and abdominal crampy pains but some people show no symptoms despite infection. Kill them before using the Black Box (Pulser or Zapper). I think everyone should use these products for a time every year to eliminate all possible parasites they may have acquired that year.
