10-Day Diet and Detox Guide

As I have stated extensively in my book, Ten Days to Optimal Health, the following program is based on the research of Dr. Weston A. Price, as well as on many years of dedicated practice by alternative health practitioners throughout the world. I know that this dietary program will assist you in attaining your health goals. I assist clients to apply its principles at the Optimal Health Center each and every week. It works. Foods do assist our bodies to heal.

10-Day DietWater

Drink reverse osmosis water, or another source of clean water, all day long. Ideally, drink a half cup every half hour. For those of you who are drinking raw milk, you may replace some of the water with a half cup to two cups of milk. For those of you who have hypothyroidism as part of your health struggle, you may want to drink orange or cherry juice in place of some of the water.


Eat breakfast soon after arising every day. It is important that it consist of fruit, protein, and fat.


Eat fruit or drink tropical fruit juice throughout the day, 5 to 10 minutes before a meal.

Small Meals

Eat a small meal every 2 to 4 hours. This means that you will be eating 5 to 8 meals per day.

Non-Starchy Vegetables

Eat non-starchy vegetables 1 to 4 times daily. Organic (pesticide-free) is best. Non-starchy vegetables include raw sauerkraut, broccoli, celery, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, onions, spinach, salad greens, kale, spaghetti squash, cauliflower, bok choy, collard greens, and more.


Eat 5 to 25 grams of protein every 2 to 4 hours. Proteins may include non-commercial, grass-fed meat such as beef or buffalo, ostrich, elk, raw dairy products, safe fish, organic chicken, organic turkey, or pasture-raised eggs. It is essential that you eat some animal protein each time you eat.
