Dr Clark’s recipe
Before the actual cleansing, prepare your body by drinking 1 liter apple juice (malic acid) per day. On the 6º day (preferably a Saturday) eat white rice before 2 PM, after which you may only drink water.
Mix 3 glasses of water with 4 tablespoons of Epsom salt in a jar. Every serving will be a quarter of a glass:
6 PM Drink the first serving.
8 PM Drink the second serving from the Epsom salt
9:45 PM. Perform an enema to empty bowels.
10 PM Mix half a glass of olive oil with ¾ grapefruit juice and drink the mix.
Sleep semi incorporated.
The next day, Sunday, at 7 AM, drink the third glass of Epsom salt.
At 9 AM it is time for the fourth and last glass.
Epsom salt is a mild laxative that will help to eliminate small kidney stones.
Starting from 11 AM you may start eating fruit and drinking fruit juice.
Epsom salt is also an excellent bath salt, because it relaxes muscle spasms and soothes cramps. Also effective to cure ingrown nails.
As a scrub:
Mix a handful of Epsom salt with a teaspoon of cleaning milk, bath-, olive- or sacha inchi oil and scrub onto moist skin to eliminate rough patches. Rinse thoroughly and finish with your favorite moisturizing lotion.
As a cure for greasy hair:
Mix 1/2 teaspoon of Epsom salt with your shampoo. The salt will help to absorb the excessive oil in your hair, making it glow with natural shine again.
People with kidney disease should not use Epsom salt unless prescribed by their doctor.
