Coconut water is a very powerful antidote. Since the first, coastal communities rely on coconut water to overcome food and drug poisoning. Drinking fresh coconut water as soon as possible could save the lives of people who poisoned by food or drug. The Ayuverda therapists in India even utilize coconut water for detoxification program. Detoxification is a natural therapy to eliminate toxin from the body, both endogenous toxins which are produced by the body and toxins that came from the environment.
Different from other detoxification programs which are complicated and hard to do, detoxification with coconut water is fairly easy, natural and safe for everyone. This Detoxification is very effective to eliminate toxins in the gastrointestinal tract, kidney, and respiratory tract. This program is very well to be done by people who have kidney problems, diabetes, gout, hypertension and allergies.
The first phase is a cleansing program that aims to cleanse the digestive tract, especially the colon. At this stage, from the first day until the 3rd day you may only drink coconut water, fruit and vegetable juice and water. You should drink at least 1 liter of coconut water each day and consume fruit and vegetable juice as much as you want. You can drink water in addition, but it’s better if all drinking water is coconut water. There are no restrictions on the amount of coconut water you should drink in a day. Your energy source only comes from coconut water, fruit juice and vegetables juice that you earn during the cleaning process.
Almost all types of fruit may be processed into juice except gummy fruit like jackfruit, mangoes, and sapodilla. Also should not consume the fruits with high sugar content like bananas, grapes and watermelon on this first 3 days. Avoid star fruit because they contain oxalates which make the kidney works heavier.
The recommended vegetables are leafy vegetables and low starch vegetables. Reduce the bulbous vegetable that contains a lot of starch.
For cancer patients it is recommended to implement the program for 2 weeks with specific rules for selecting the kind of fruit and vegetables should be consumed. Especially for patients with liver disorders, detoxification should be done for 1 week by adding beet juice as an additional drink as much as 300 ml per day.
For most people, 3 days therapy is enough to clean their bodies from toxin. It is characterized by the emergence of the body cleansing process signs like headache, joint pain, red spots appear on the skin, but the body feels “lighter” and more passionate. You do not have to worry if these signs happen to you because your body is in the cleanup phase towards improvement.
After implement the cleansing program, it can be continued into the maintenance stage. At this stage, you still have to drink fresh coconut water every day as a substitute for drinking water but you are now allowed to consume other sources of carbohydrates you usually consumed as a staple food but should be limited in number. Usually this stage is carried out for 1 week. It is advisable to limit the consumption of animal foods (meat, eggs, milk), food from flour/starch, sugar and fried foods.
Fruit and vegetable juices still have to consume regularly but you may reduce the portions because you have been eating solid food that contains nutrients. It is highly recommended to eat colorful vegetables and green vegetables. Add avocado after 1 week undergoing maintenance program to get essential fats intake that are beneficial to speed up the detoxification process.
After undergoing detoxification with coconut water program, you may implement a daily healthy diet for a better quality of your health.
