What is a Mono-diet? It is the First-and Most Powerful-Principle of Care.

Periodic Mono-dieting is in my opinion the first step to recapture your health and lesson your pain. It is what started me to get absolute relief after suffering 43 years with arthritis. Use it in the right way and maintain the level of health you desire.

The greatest benefit is it is simple and easy to do. Anyone who desires to make a life style change can use this method. It is key to preventing ill health while nurturing vibrant health.

How do you start? First by understanding that you will not be hungry…you will be satisfied…and it will work if you work it.

There are 3 different ways to do this.

1. Drinking only fresh fruit and vegetable juice for 1 to 3 days to a week.

2. Drinking only vegetable juices and fresh fruit juices and eating whole fruits and vegetables for 3 days to a week.

3. Drinking only fresh fruit and vegetable juices and eating only fresh fruit and vegetables and salads for 1 to 10 days.


First: This type of eating allows the body to use the least amount of energy in digesting your food. This leaves the rest of the body’s energy to cleansing, detoxifying and rejuvenation of the lymph system.

Second: Because the purpose of this type of eating is to obtain the maximum amount of fuel and nutrients and enzymes from the food you do eat.

Eating raw fruits takes less energy to digest that eating cooked foods. We are the only species that eats cooked foods and we are the species that lead in degenerative diseases. And arthritis is one of the main degenerative diseases. Over 90 Million people in the United States have arthritis.

In 1979 when I went for 43 years of agony to complete relief in less than 3 months 1 in 20 people had arthritis. Now it is one in three and fast becoming 1 in every two people. This can be stopped.

To gain the greatest benefit from Mono-dieting, make it part of your routine. Start with any of the above changes. Make the 3rd one for you to do once in the spring and again in the fall and again in the winter. In between do it one day a week.

This way of cleansing your body gives your immune system a chance to revitalize its activities.

Mark your calendar. Mark it “My special time!” because you are doing this for YOU. If you wake up some day and feel like having just fruit or vegetables…raw…then just do it.

You will feel liberated. The other benefits are you will be helping your body to prevent disease and getting this fantastic surge of energy and well-being as a result.

Take charge of your life. Who puts the food and drink into your mouth? It is not some genie or friend or ad. It is YOU!!!

You will now be taking charge of getting rid of your body wastes and toxins. These toxins area saved in your body and clumped together. If you feel these little lumps all over you now know what that is, is JUNK. This junk is ruining your health and keeping you from living to your fullest.

And guess what? You get to control this. IF IT IS TO BE, IT IS UP TO ME.

Go from being a slave to food to being a master of food and you will your body will benefit. You will look younger, feel younger, have more energy and let’s face it. ENERGY is everything.

Digestion uses a great deal of energy. This way your body uses less energy to digest the food you eat and more to rebuild your body.

Proteins and starches are very concentrated foods requiring a huge amount of energy output for digestion. Fruits and vegetables are not concentrated and so require less energy to digest.

Ever have a stomachache? Or acid reflux? Or acid indigestion? Or heartburn or gas pains? Or that heavy, bloated feeling after eating? You are headed toward many bad diseases if you do. It is the start of ulcers and colitis which leads to cancer.

Do you want that? YOU have the power to stop that. The two biggest selling prescription drugs are Tagamet and Zantac. Both are for stomach disorders. This is what gave my husband Warren cancer and ended his life at 72. He had been taking both for 40 or more years. His oncologist said these two drugs actually caused his cancer.

Dr. Walford is a medical doctor and did experiments on mice. A mouse has a life span of about 2 years. He fed one group whatever mice eat and the control group he fasted them 2 days a week. What happened? The control group lived 4 years.

That is the only change he made in their diets.

There is only one rule in this change in your life. NOTHING COOKED.

That includes all processed foods. You eat only raw foods. That is IT.

The average person eats over 50 pounds of sugar yearly. It is in such great amounts of food it is mind-boggling. It is in ketchup. Check the labels. If any of these are on it don’t eat it.

In fact write this out and place on your refrigerator.

“If it has a label, do not eat it. That is the first thing I was taught when I started my journey to freedom from arthritis.

You can add raw nuts but only 10 or 12 nuts a day is enough.

Eat one large salad a day. Use a salad dressing of olive oil and lemon juice and your favorite herbs and spices. You can have other types but make sure they have no chemical additives.

Of course, continue with your 20 minutes exercising 3 times a week. Anything that is enjoyable, preferably outside.

We now know that those who spend that time outside in the yard or the woods or meadows are healthier than those who do their walking or swimming indoors. This is due to the “green” theory.

There is something about the oxygen when you are around green things that are healthier. So take that bike ride in the park, or that walk. Or even the beach is okay. We need fresh air and sunshine.

You have heard about the tiredness you get from long flights? It is due to many things but mainly that you are breathing the same air over and over in the plane.

Swimming in an indoor pool is not as healthy as in an outdoor pool. Walking in the mall is less healthy that walking in the park or where there is grass and trees. It is why farmers and gardeners are usually healthier than inside workers.

Think about this. We are not talking about expensive things to do. Just do simple and easy things outside in the fresh air and sunshine.

You body will thank you, your family will thank you and you will live longer.

I personally do not care how old I am when I die. I just do not want to wake up each morning feeling tired, sluggish and unhealthy. I want to feel energetic and alive. So far at 80 I can and am doing just that.

You can too.
