Apples: Apples in themselves are miracles. They’re
amazing for digestion: They collect and rid bacteria, parasites, viruses, and
mold from the entire gut. They create a stable alkaline environment wherever
needed. They also help heal diverticulitis and reduce inflammation in the
stomach and intestinal tract. Apples are incredibly cleansing and healing for
the gallbladder and liver. Not only do they detoxify, carefully extracting
sediment from these organs; they also help dissolve gallstones.
Maple syrup: The combination of sugars and high mineral
content quickly travels to the liver and becomes instant fuel of phytonutrient
composition. It’s like an IV for the liver containing the best of both worlds:
a vast array of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients (many of them still
undiscovered) coupled with high-quality sugar on which the liver thrives.
Lemons: The rich calcium levels in lemons binds to the
vitamin C within them, and both of these enter into the liver, where they waken
a stagnant, sluggish, fatty liver, helping loosen and disperse fat cells.
Lemons clean up dirty blood syndrome, improve glucose absorption, and even
protect the pancreas.
