October is National Book Month. On my other blog, I share what I’m currently reading this month and why. Among the five books gracing the table next to my chair is this one by Anthony William…Cleanse to Heal.
Anthony, also known as the medical medium, offers a series of books that have changed my health and my life. In Cleanse to Heal, book six in the series, Anthony provides cleanses for all that’s going wrong in our bodies. He doesn’t offer fads or gimmicks. Rather he recommends foods and cleansing programs for a host of ailments including pain, fatigue, brain fog, digestive disorders and many other conditions.
I’ve tried several of the cleanses in the book, with healing results. This month I’m focusing on the Anti-Bug Cleanse.
I’m happy to share a review of this life altering book.
My Healing Journey
In case you are new to this blog, a bit about my healing journey. I experienced a serious car accident in 1995, resulting in injuries to my spine, sternum, collar bones, neck, low back and legs. After five years of physical therapy, treatments, pain specialists and spinal adjustments, I continued to experience pain 24/7. I developed chronic nerve pain in both legs although the left leg suffered the most.
Doctors eventually gave up on me, running out of healing options to try. They predicted that my condition would continue to deteriorate and I’d end up in a wheelchair in 20 years. Exactly 20 years later, that prediction seemed on the verge of coming true. I found it necessary to walk with the aid of a cane. It often took me hours to be able to get out of bed and stand. My work suffered as did many other areas in my life.
A Cry for Help
Lying in bed one morning, summer of 2016, unable to straighten out my pain wracked left leg, I felt like I’d reached a dire place in my health. I intended to take my grandson on a trip to Italy the next year, for his high school graduation gift. For the first time, I questioned whether I’d be able to go or if I’d require a wheelchair if I did manage it.
I asked God for a way to heal.
The very next day, I came across a post on Facebook written by Anthony William. He explained that often, after an accident, we don’t heal. And that we don’t understand why. I read every word in that post and felt it was written for me. Anthony described my pain and lack of healing and then he offered hope.
I purchased his book, Medical Medium, experienced my first 28 day healing cleanse, and completely changed my health. Not one doctor or specialist that I saw during those 20 years of suffering ever suggested that a change in my diet might result in a change in my health. Anthony suggested it. I embraced the idea, adopting a 100% plant based lifestyle. The cane went into a corner of my bedroom after one week of eating differently. I’ve not used it since. My health improved drastically…not just the intense pain in my legs but in all areas. And I took my grandson to Italy the next year, in the best health of my life.
Cleanse to Heal
“Chronic illness is growing at an alarming rate. Even with the massive amounts of organic food being cultivated now, even with the awareness about removing processed foods from our lives, even with the newest healing modalities, sickness is present like never before. No one is escaping illness, not unless they have the right information to stop the ticking clock. This is not a lifestyle book. It’s a lifetime book. In a sea of false truths, this is about saving lives.” Anthony William
Poisons, toxins and pathogens lie behind many chronic illnesses that threaten our wellbeing. Cleansing is a powerful way to start the healing process and to protect health in an ongoing way.
In Cleanse to Heal, Anthony offers a variety of cleanses. Plus he includes:
- how to choose the right cleanse for you
- the causes of 200 symptoms and conditions with a guide to helpful supplements
- 75 recipes with colorful photos and sample menus
- helpful dos and don’ts
- truths about trendy diets
- what you need to know about eggs, diary, gluten, fish oil and other foods that cause inflammation
- toxins, heavy metals, troublemaker foods and viral cleansing
- the connection between physical cleansing and emotional health
- spiritual and soul support for healing
A Breakdown of the Sections in the Book
The book is divided into six sections.
Part 1: We Need to Cleanse
This opening section discusses what’s going on inside our bodies and why we need to cleanse. It includes chapters on trendy diets and why those are not helpful plus a list of troublemaker foods. This section concludes with a guide to choosing the right cleanse for you.
Part 2: 3:6:9 Cleanse – Life Protector
This whole section covers the original 3:6:9 cleanse, which I’ve done several times, and variations of this process.
The nine day cleanse allows the liver and other internal organs to release old toxins as well as fats and viral waste. It’s a gradual yet deep cleanse that can truly jumpstart health.
Part 3: Other Life Saving Cleanses
Part three introduces the other cleanses in the book: anti-bug cleanse, morning cleanse, heavy metal detox cleanse and mono eating cleanse.
I’m currently doing the anti-bug cleanse. I share my experience below.
Part 4: Cleanse Guide
Discover crucial dos and don’ts while cleansing, in this section. Anthony also writes about the body’s amazing power to heal and includes sample menus and those delicious recipes here.
Part 5: Spiritual and Soul Healing Support
In this beautifully written section, Anthony offers living words for the underdogs, fighting for their health, and a note to the critics. He discuses the emotional connection to cleansing and how to empower the soul.
Part 6: Knowing the Cause and the Protocol
This helpful last section of the book provides guides to taking supplements and discusses the true causes of symptoms and conditions. Anthony includes supplement dosage recommendations for each symptom and condition.
My Experience Using This Book
So far, I’ve completed the 3:6:9 cleanse several times, as a way to deeply detox my liver and internal organs. Due to our environment and typical western diet, we accumulate excess fats, pathogens, toxins and viral loads that burrow into our organs. There they create problems. This cleanse is a wonderful way to allow the organs to release the build up and function properly again. I like to do this cleanse a couple of times a year.
I’ve also done the Heavy Metal Detox. This powerful cleanse helps to remove the accumulation of mercury, aluminum, copper, lead, nickel, cadmium, barium and arsenic that settles in different areas of different organs. The brain and liver are the two primary organs that are affected by these heavy metals.
For all cleanses in the book, Anthony details the duration of the cleanse, the foods and drinks to consume and the foods to avoid.
The Anti-Bug Cleanse
This is my first experience with this cleanse. The anti-bug cleanse starves viruses and bacteria in the body, by avoiding certain foods, and then flushes them out along with toxins and poisons in the blood.
Duration of this cleanse is two weeks or longer.
And here’s the protocol:
Drink 16 ounces of celery juice every morning.
Avoid the list of troublemaker foods. Anthony suggests different levels of foods to avoid. I’m avoiding all of them.
- soft drinks
- fermented foods
- grains, except for gluten free oatmeal and millet
And limit or remove
- artificial flavors
- nutritional yeast
- citric acid
- other artificial sweeteners
Drink at least 32 ounces of water daily, in addition to the celery juice.
Why avoid those foods? Some are blood thickeners due to fat content. Thicker blood keeps toxins suspended and unable to be flushed out of the body. Some dehydrate the body, others introduce new toxins to the the body and some feed viruses and bugs.
Removing these foods allows the body to heal while flushing out all the gunk we don’t need. I included sugar as a food to avoid as well, as I know it causes inflammation in my body and creates acid reflux.
How I’m Doing on the Anti-Bug Cleanse
I’m almost two weeks into this cleanse. And immediately I noticed a difference in the way my body feels and functions. I’m plant based already, so I don’t eat meat, eggs or dairy products. And I’m gluten intolerant, so I routinely avoid grains. However, it’s easier than I’d like for it to be, for things such as sugar and too much salt to creep into my diet.
My body responds favorably to limiting the foods on the avoid list. And although after the cleanse I’ll add back in olive oils, healthy fats such as avocados and nuts and foods such as olives, for now I’m appreciating how I feel during the cleanse.
I start the day with celery juice and then have a fruit smoothie for breakfast. Lunch and supper meals provide an assortment of veggies prepared in a variety of ways. Snacks include fresh fruit such as apples, pears, bananas and berries.
I intend to continue the anti-bug cleanse for at least two more weeks. That will bring me to mid November, with a cleaner body, and a stronger desire to eat as healthy as possible during the holidays.
I have big plans for 2022 and a strong, healthy, energetic body is vital to all that I intend to accomplish. Cleanse to Heal will help me live in optimal wellness.
