In America, all of us suffer from chronic inflammation caused by our toxic un-regulated fake food sources country-wide.
Please note this is not medical advice from a doctor, but rather firsthand experience as a lifelong patient. The health benefits mentioned below stem from our personal journey of healing with autoimmune disease holistically. Although. these holistic practices have been medically reviewed and utilized by naturopathic doctors worldwide.
Ideally, this is a lifestyle and ideology to incorporate in your daily life, but to prove to you how effective this way of eating is, let’s try it for 7 days. You have nothing to lose but years of inflammation and weight build up. So first let’s prepare your mind for the reason behind why every American should try this flush.
Almost every food on the grocery store shelves has been highly processed for the masses with inflammatory oils, cheap fillers and gums, chemical flavorings, harmful dyes, and the list goes on. When your body begins to try and digest these non-food particles, it does not know what to do with them and it basically causes inflammation and mayhem with your cells. Therefore, this natural anti-inflammatory flush is meant to give your body a rest and begin to chip away at the inflammation build-up.
So first what you will need is a trip to your local organic grocery store. Shop this list and more… any/all the organic fruits and vegetables that look delicious to you.

Here are some ideas for your (ORGANIC, anti-inflammatory) grocery list:
- 3-5 kinds of lettuce / leafy greens,
- Papaya (magical gut health properties)
- Sweet Potato
- Frozen spinach
- Baking soda (to clean any preservative sprays/waxes off fruits and veggies)
- Organic herbs and spices to cook with (e.g., Himalayan sea salt, black pepper, thyme, sage, dill, basil, turmeric, herbs de Provence, etc.)
- Frozen cauliflower rice
The items below you can buy at the store -- or on Amazon & when you love your results, you have the option to automate with a subscription if you want to stick with the anti-inflammatory life:
Once you have wrangled all these groceries into your home it is important to keep the produce unwashed (wash upon using) so they stay fresh in the refrigerator. Soak all fruits and veggies in water + baking soda bath for 20 minutes to remove all chemical sprays and waxes to maintain their in-store shelf life.
If you notice, these 7 days will be strictly plant-based so put your red meat, poultry, and fish in the freezer. America’s mass produced meats and especially processed meats like lunch meat, hot dogs, and bacon are linked to inflammation, heart disease, and cancer. Watch “What the Health?” on Netflix to learn more about this.
So in order to reduce inflammation and put out the fire burning down your immune system it is important to keep all foods clean for instant anti-inflammatory effects.

There is NO set meal structure to this flush except this — your first drink of the day should be warm lemon water, followed by your first meal of the day—a bowl of fresh organic fruit.
But the most important aspect is to stick to ONLY these foods, lots of filtered clean water (our tap water is riddled with arsenic and beyond... another topic for another day), fruit for breakfast and no eating past 8 pm.
For the remainder of the day, you can enjoy any of the vegetables above in copious amounts.
You can make a salad, sauté your frozen spinach with seasonings and a can of coconut cream for a creamed spinach situation. You can cut cauliflower into bite sized pieces and toss in olive oil and seasonings & serve with squash. The list goes on and on, get inspired and treat this as an act of self love.

What foods to avoid completely during this week of following an anti-inflammatory diet?
The following foods DO NOT have anti-inflammatory properties… ALL DAIRY AND GRAINS (this includes quinoa, brown rice, and gluten-free oats), soy, alcohol, caffeine, processed foods / fast food, and refined sugars.
When was the last time you gave your body a break from these highly inflammatory foods?
And then we wonder why we are unable to shed pounds. Inflammation builds up like plaque in your body and slows weight loss when you continue to eat foods that add to the fire, but when you stop… it's like draining a bathtub. Just watch the weight flush off your bones and body. It is very possible you could lose up to 10 lbs. during this 7 day flush.
When it comes to your health your body knows best, listen to what it tells you after eating, spending time with friends, etc., and how you feel afterward. Your best guide is your intuition, not Healthline Media, WebMD, or any other voice than the one inside of you.
There is no better time to take care of your health and wellbeing today. There may not be a cure for cancer but there sure is a lifestyle that prevents disease and it begins with what you consume physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Follow this protocol for 7 days and see how you body blooms, notice your joint pain diminishing, your skin clears, wrinkles release, brain fog lifts, digestion runs smoothly, and your happiness levels increase. Over 95% of your serotonin is made in the gut, so you will literally be eating your way to happiness.
