♥ Day 66 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day 66 ♥
Sixty-six is a good number, it was the year I was born, and the year England won the World Cup!
Seriously though, 66 was a good day, as all the others have been on this journey.
I was pretty sure I was going to break the juice on Day 60, but here I still am, a little bit thinner but just as happy.
The Oranges, to me, have been just Beaut. And each morning all I want is ...
...Orange juice.
And what is very beautiful is that I can have Orange juice.
I am able to take the golden nectar that I desire.

I am going to quote a bit more from the wonderful Dr. Leon A. Wilcox, friend and champion of the Orange.
Wilcox says:

" I, one time, heard a great physician and dietition say, "orange juice is water distilled in God's own distillery". How true this is.
It is a food and a drink for the healthy and medicine for the sick. For those who are seeking to regain health, there is nothing that can be taken that will assist nature like the golden elixir of life."

Hooray for Dr. Wilcox! ♥
Imagine if we had physicians today who were prescribing Orange juice instead of man-made allopathic drugs.
Would Dr. Wilcox survive today though, or would he be run out of town by the big pharmacuetical companies who have nothing to gain if people are well, but all kinds of profit to make if they are sick.
I so admire these health pioneers such as Leon A. Wilcox and Frank McCoy, both doctors, who had their eyes open to truth and healing.
I have no doubt that the members of our current medical system truly want to help people and remove sickness from the world. But it seems that they are trained to look for quick short term fixes which stop any symptoms of elimination, rather than allowing the body's own intelligence to predominate and be given the appropriate conditions to heal itself.
Can a powder or a potion ever truly compete with the marvellous intelligence and healing capacity of the human body ♥

♥ Day 65 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day ♥ 65

Blood Oranges

In 1936, a child
in Hitler's Germany,
what did I know about the war in Spain?
Andalusia was a tango
on a wind-up gramophone,
Franco a hero's face in the paper.
No one told me about a poet
for whose sake I might have learned Spanish
bleeding to death on a barren hill.
All I knew of Spain
were those precious imported treats
we splurged on for Christmas.
I remember pulling the sections apart,
lining them up, sucking each one
slowly, so the red sweetness
would last and last -

while I was reading a poem
by a long-dead German poet
in which the woods stood safe
under the moon's milky eye
and the white fog in the meadows
aspired to become lighter than air.

Lisel Mueller

I must admit to a bit of a penchant for Blood Oranges, especially the really dark red ones from Sicily. I would have to say the juice from Sicilian Bloods is one of the most glorious drinks to have ever passed my lips ♥
At the moment Bloods are not in season in Australia and although the Blood Orange will grow in Queensland, because the Winter does not get very cold, the Bloods will not get such a deep red colour. So the very beautiful rich winey flavour that accompanies the deep rich colour needs a nice cold winter to develop.
Since starting my Orange juice diet, I have had Valencia juice for the vast majority of my daily juice, with just the odd Navel or Honey Murcott.
But as I find each individual fruit to have its own unique taste and flavour, I have never tired from the dear sweet Valencias ♥
I think that looking forward each day to my Orange juice, when the house has been filled with Durian, fresh Figs, Home-grown Mangoes, and local Lychees, is a good indication that the juice is still working for me and fulfilling my needs.
And I do feel very blessed to have had access to so many delightful Organic Oranges. The Organic aspect has been very important to me. It feels good to be consuming Organic fruit from both a health and an environmental perspective, and the Organic fruit feels very precious to me ♥

♥ Day 64 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day 64 ♥
It has been great spending the last couple of Days with other fruit lovers, I feel that Cappi has really benefited too from having the company of others who eat like he does and who love fruit. He has really enoyed sharing fruit and time with Darrick, Jess and Nick.

My energy and strength continue to be good, and I continue to relish the Oranges and really look forward to my morning juice, especially if I finish my juice by early afternoon the previous day.
I have three lots of Organic Oranges from different sources in the house, all are great, and I feel the variety of fruit from different growers, and so different soils, will help ensure that I get a wider range of nutrients.
One reason why, I feel, the Orange juice diet works so well for me is that it is a great cleanser whilst at the same time being a great source of nutrition ♥

Yesterday when out walking I was 'hit' by the fact : "Arnold Ehret Was Right!" I could feel that V=P-O, in that Vitality equals Power minus Obstructions.
I could feel so much freedom and fluidity in my muscles as I exercised, and a huge source of energy that was not just related to the amount of juice I was consuming - it was a Wonderful feeling ♥

Blood Orange Juice Inhibits Fat Accumulation

According to a study published by the International Journal of Obesity, blood orange juice inhibits fat accumulation in mice. The objective of the study was to analyze the effect of the juice obtained from two varieties of sweet oranges: Moro (a blood orange) and Navelina (a blond orange), on fat accumulation in mice.

Results: Dietary supplementation of blood orange juice, but not the blond orange juice significantly reduced body weight gain and fat accumulation regardless of the increased energy intake because of sugar content. Findings suggest that multiple components present in the blood orange juice might act synergistically to inhibit fat accumulation.

Details of the study can be found by clicking here

♥ Day 63 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day 63 ♥
...And three Fruit Eaters came from the South bearing gifts of Durian...
We have three beautiful fruit eaters staying with us at the moment, Darrick, Jess and Nick, who came from Bryon Bay via Chinatown in Brisbane.

It is lovely to spend time with other fruit eaters. Cappi is having a great time (and enjoying the lovely Durian)  I am having a great time and enjoying the smell of the Durian. But I am still happy on Oranges and look forward to my juice with relish ♥
We had a bit of a beach day yesterday, and the sea air was such a tonic, and deep breathing it felt very wonderful and energising.
We managed to find some good Biodynamic Valencias on the way to the beach, so I have a nice little stock of citrus, plus I am getting an Organic delivery tomorrow morning. So the Organic Oranges continue to be bountiful and very much appreciated.
We are so fortunate in our part of the World to be able to access great quality, nicely sun-ripened fruit.
So Thank You ♥.

I feel that I am going to continue with Orange juice while my body is still eliminating. Otherwise I feel that I would be cutting short some deep-seated cleansing.
My bottom line is that I have energy and endurance and that my body feels that it is in a state of cleansing rather than a state of starvation and deprivation.
I feel that whatever raw diet one is on, listening to the body is vital. We are all very much individuals with greatly varying life histories and differing genetic backgrounds, so what may work well for one person may not be optimal for another.

I feel good physically on the Orange juice, happy mentally, and in a very beautiful spiritual place - and so I feel that an extended mono Orange juice diet is indeed working very well for myself ♥

♥ Day 62 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day 61 ♥
I have decided to remain on the Orange juice for now, but I am taking my decision day-to-day. I have some elimination continuing, and it still seems the best option to me to continue with the Orange juice. I feel to add mixed fruits to my diet would slow the body in its cleansing efforts.
I am feeling strong and  have good energy and endurance which pleases me ♥

I have started to look through the doctor's account of the very positive effects Orange juice mixed with Lemon juice had on the gums and teeth of the 341 children.
It is quite scientific in nature, but I am inspired by the comment in the foreword (written by the twelve doctors who made up the Chigargo Dental Research Club):

"Definite dietary instructions were given and in certain cases massive doses of orange juice were recommended. These cases were carefully watched and tabulated and it was at this time that certain soft tissue changes were noticed. The effects were so startling that in some instances the members of our group were soon prescribing large amounts of orange juice in all cases showing soft tissue pathology."

There is very detailed data of the diet of the 341 children, including what fruit they ate, and I feel that this will be a very interesting study to investigate.

I am still loving the weather, and find its heat a perfect accompaniment to the Orange juice diet.

The Orange juice today tasted even better than usual after a day of water ♥

♥ Day 61 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day 61 ♥
Today was not quite as planned, I had intended to break my Orange juice diet today, but water fasted instead!
I was still having some elimination, and I just felt that I neeeded to water fast to aid my body, so my body would have more energy to help the elimination along. It seemed that the Universe was letting me know that it was not the right time to end the Oranges.

I am currently reading the biography 'April Fool's Day' by Bryce Courtenay. I have read his work before, including 'The Power of One' which I found to be an amazing book.
'April Fool's Day' is Bryce Courtenay's heart rendering account of his son's life and death. His son Damon died of AIDs when he was just 24 years old. Damon had haemophillia and had received contaminated Factor VIII in a blood transfusion.
In the book are Damon's words:

"And what I am trying to do is express them (the events associated with his illness) in a way that may make you think that what you have, the life you lead, is special, because you have one thing in common. Well, most of you anyway. You have your health. Please never take that for granted, because it is the greatest gift that will ever be given to you as a person. It allows you to choose the path you take in life. There are no limitations to what you can achieve if you have your health. There is nothing you can not do. Never forget that. If that is all you get out of reading this book, then I have achieved my aim."

It does seem rather easy to take our health for granted, and forget just how precious it is and how nothing else in life can really compare to the feeling of strength and well-being coursing through our veins.
And health, seemingly our birthright, can be taken away from us by accidents, toxins, mis-treatment of ourselves by others, genetics, and unnatural diets. And for some, like Damon, it can never really be 100% present if we are born with a genetic condition such as Haemophillia.

So, I feel very blessed and fortunate to have been able to follow a path that has given me such wonderful health and all the joys that good health brings with it, and to have lived with two healthy and happy children ♥
It must be the hardest thing in the world to see your child suffer with pain and ill health, and feel powerless to stop the pain and suffering.
So I give many thanks for finding a way of light and fruit that has brought me, and continues to give me, health and happiness ♥ Thank You ♥

♥ Day 60 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day 60 ♥
I was thinking about making this my last day on the Golden Nectar, but I got a couple of signs from the world of Orange synchronicity that it was not quite the time to stop yet.
Despite my weight being down, and despite the house-cleaning and elimination that is going on, I feel that I have more endurance than when on a mixed fruit diet.
One of the reasons for this is that when I am carrying Cappi (and the same was true with Camlo, my elder son, when I was on a mono Orange juice diet in 1995) I feel like I could carry him forever. My muscles do not seem to get tired.
When I carried Cappi (13kg/28.6lbs) home from the railway station yesterday, it was more of a joy for my muscles, rather than an effort. And it felt like if I had needed to carry on for another couple of hours then it would not have been an issue.
Another real bonus to the Orange juice diet is feeling in harmony with the heat. I have felt the hot temperatures to be delicious, and I have relished the heat and the sun on my body.
When I hear other people saying how hot they are, then I realize that I am on a different planet to them—The Orange Planet!

I am excited to study a book that I got off the internet.
If you have been following this blog, you may remember the Day 39 post, where I was talking about the California Fruit Growers Exchange and the research they conducted on children's dental health and diet.
Well, with a bit of internet investigating, I managed to get hold of the detailed original report of this research. The book was published in 1934, and is in excellent condition with many photographic plates, and it is filled with data that helps to show the great improvement in gum and tooth health when the children had no other dietary change except the daily addition of two big glasses of Orange juice (with some added Lemon juice).

I do not necessarily hold faith in science, but I do think that having well-documented studies by members of the medical profession, can be very useful in presenting the benefits of fruit to those who desire documented data.

♥ Day 59 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day 59 ♥
These two Valencias in the photo show the possible variation in Orange size. Although both are certified Organic, there certainly is a big variation in size. The bigger 'Table' Orange is on the left and the smaller 'Syrup Ball' is to the right.
I am preferring the Syrup Balls for taste and sweetness, but the larger Oranges have still been mighty good.
And in case you are worried that my Oranges do not look 'orange', I took this photo in sepia.

Something that I read years ago has stayed with me. It was regarding a prison where the prisoners had been given a glass of Orange juice each day, in addition to their normal prison fare. Now I am not at all sure that this would have been raw, fresh juice. However, just this addition of one glass of Orange juice (and possibly pasteurized Orange juice at that) per day was found to have a very positive effect on the behaviour of the prisoners.
What really strikes me about this is that so much potential power lies within fruit; just one glass of Orange juice per day, amid all the processed jail food - and yet that glass made a vital and positive difference to the health and well-being of the inmates.

Similarly, I have a newspaper clipping, about an English primary school, where the only change made to the children's diet was that for morning break they ate only fruit. All their other meals at home and school remained the same.
The school originally brought in this trial for just one class. But they got such an improvement in behaviour and also such an increase in academic achievement in this one class that the school soon implemented the 'fruit only' morning break for the whole school.

So I see that fruit indeed has almost magical powers to help us humans who have strayed with our diet and lifestyles so far from the natural and rational way of living - so that even in the midst of a Western World full of processed and denatured diets or mass-produced prison food - fruit can still work its wonders ♥

So I am indeed very grateful to have discovered the fruit diet, and I am very grateful for all the wonderful health and joy it has brought into my life ♥
There are many people in the world, such as prisoners, and children (whose diet is largely in the hands of their carers), who have very little dietary choices and who do not have the power to pick, grow, or select their own fruit.
And this makes me very appreciative for all the dietary choices and power that I have in my life, and my ability to be able to easily choose and obtain great quality fruit.
                                  ♥ Thank You ♥

♥ Day 58 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day 58 ♥
Today I had the pleasure to finish reading Dick Gregory's book, 'Natural Diet For Folk Who Eat: Cookin' With Mother Nature'.
I have really enjoyed Dick Gregory's insights and humour; and I especially valued the last chapter.
I would like to share some quotes from that last chapter with you ♥.

"The same mentality which sanctions the dropping of bombs on Vietnam is responsible for spraying poisonous chemicals on the fruits and vegetables people eat. Even the rationale is the same. Spraying fruits and vegetables, it is said, is for the protection of the consumer. The same reasoning insists that bombing Vietnam is for the Vietnamese people's own good!"

"As mentioned earlier, in the chapter on fasting, when the body is cleansed, the six basic fears plaguing humankind disappear. This is true of both individuals and nations. America seems to be afraid the nation will be overwhelmed externally, by some mysterious force - a red menace, a yellow peril, etc. It never seems to occur to America that the greatest menace is internal, the gradual and not so mysterious degeneration of the bodies of Americans and the effect that disintegration has on the mind, emotions and behavior patterns.
" Individual Americans show the same irrational fears. Some worry and fret while riding in an airplane, fearing the possibility that the plane will crash. It never occurs to them there is more danger in the meal they will eat on the plane. When the basic fears disappear as a result of cleansing the system, the terrible problems rooted in those basic fears also begin to be solved - racial hatreds, bigotry and misunderstanding, an infatuation with war and killing - all of the seemingly "insoluable" problems we face today."

" Anything we are supposed to have Mother Nature places at our doorstep. At twelve noon, we walk out of the door and we know where Mother Nature's sun will be. Her rain comes down on us, and her air and her wind. But the birds fly away when we approach and animals scamper at the sound of our footsteps. It's as though they know we can't be trusted.
" Apples don't run away from us. They fall off the trees into our waiting hands. Oranges, pears and peaches don't try to escape. They remain in Mother Nature's kitchen, being baked and ripened by her natural sunlight. So enjoy her pantry! You'll be so glad you did. Because Mother Nature's cookin', baby!
  Peace be with you."

Thank You very much Dick Gregory for these words of beauty and truth ♥

Day ♥ 57 ♥ Mono Orange Juice

Day 57 ♥
Today, I was very thankful for a lovely delivery of Organic Oranges from Maleny Organic Farmers' Market.
Not only is their fruit lovely but they are lovely people to connect with.

Cappi was also happy because we also ordered 3 large punnets of organic Mulberries for him.
Mulberries are one of his favourite fruits.
The Orange quality and ripeness has been very good, and I am very thankful for this.
I am sure that quality and ripeness of Citrus are the keys to ensuring a great experience on a mono diet. Teeth, the digestive system, and nutrition will all be more likely to be optimal when the fruit eaten is also optimal.

I would like to add some words from Dr. Leon A. Wilcox, as quoted in Hilton Hotema's book, 'Long-Life In Florida'.
Wilcox was an American physician who used Orange juice to help people heal themselves.
One of his famous cases is of the girl who lived on Orange juice for six months. This case is also mentioned in Hotema's book.

After having given the question of fruits twenty years of study and research not only by personal use but also by the direction and treatment of patients. I have arrived at the conclusion that the orange is the king of all  fruits.
Very few would believe the length of time an individual can live and perform the hardest of work, both mental and physical, using absolutely nothing but oranges for food. Another very important thing; a sick person living exclusively on an orange diet, is not only getting all the nourishment a body requires, but the orange will neutralize the acid in the system and prove a better medicine than any drug known to pharrmacy."

Now Wilcox sounds like my kind of doctor!
It is inspiring and encouraging for me to read the words of those that have gone before and paved the way with their knowledge and experience.

Day 56 ♥ Mono Orange Juice Diet ♥

Day 56 ♥
Today I was running low on Organic Oranges, so I thought I would take a walk to the next small town along from us on the railway line to get a few more. I am getting a big Organic Orange delivery tomorrow, but then a girl can never have too many Organic Oranges in her larder!

It is a great walk, off the main road and through the Pineapple fields, which are at this moment full of baby Pineapples ripening up in the Summer sunshine. I was on my journey back when I heard a loud noise and there not far behind me in the middle of the field was a large crop sprayer! Yikes!
So I went at a fast pace, trying not to bump my precious cargo of Oranges, and just managing to stay ahead of the monster machine with its big arm stretching out across the field.

But it did make me think of all that is unseen. Suppose I had come along half an hour later, all the baby Pineapples looking fine and dandy in the morning sunshine, but they have just been sprayed with some toxic chemical - how would I know!?
When I am out walking, I often see council employees spraying the footpath for weeds, or people spraying their gardens, this is all the seen. But how often have I walked across a park that has only just been treated with chemicals - and simply not known it.

The chemicals used on our fields, parks, and foods are invisable for the most part to our naked eyes. But they are there. Unseen yes, but not unfelt.
Because of all the toxins that I have no personal control over, then I desire to be as chemical free in the areas of my own personal choice, such as food, household cleaners, my garden, and the fruit trees and bushes in my garden.

Closing my eyes will not make the chemicals go away, looking for only the visable toxins will not make the invisable ones disappear, but every small personal choice that I make for a chemical-free lifestyle will unite with all the other chemical-free choices being made all over the world, to help create a more beautiful environment. ♥
Sometimes the enormity of a situation can seen daunting, but I do believe that it is all the little actions adding up together that can make all the difference ♥

♥ Day 55 ♥ Mono Orange Juice

I decided to make a short Youtube video today, as I did not have any photos of me on my journey. So I thought it might be useful to record how I looked (on camera anyhow) on an extended Orange Juice Diet. I used a Sanyo Xacti HD2000 camcorder.

Thank you for watching ♥

Yesterday, I got a groovy gift, a beautiful Amco orange enamelled hand orange squeezer. It works a treat ♥

It gets lots of juice out of each Orange, and at the same time is a great exercise for the hand and wrist!
The Oranges continue to be blissful.
I love puting them outside to let the rays gently sun-warm them, it seems to 'juice them up' even more.
I am also really enjoying doing my usual workout; my body flows well with it and there is a lovely ease.
I feel very loose and relaxed in my joints.
I contine to be inspired by Dick Gregory's book. I am really enjoying it as my bedtime read, and savouring each chapter.

♥ Day 54 Mono Orange Juice & a Juice With Elvis Parsley.

Day 54 ♥
Quite an auspicious number for me. 108 is a significant number in India, many Mango orchards were planted with 108 trees. So any division of this number also holds a bit of magic for me. Therefore, I was very happy to reach Day 54 ♥
And a little bit more delight on this day was to get a delicious Orange juice from Elvis Parsley.
Elvis Parsley is the delightful owner of a lovely fruit shop in Woodford, South East Queensland.
As can be seen from the above photo, Elvis has named his shop Grapelands!
His store is well worth a visit if you are in the area. Woodford is famous for the annual folk festival held there between Christmas and New Year.
So if you are ever in this small town, then go and get some beautiful fruit from Elvis Parsley.
Elvis will even serenade you as you fruit shop, if you ask nicely.

Here he is with Bob Hawke, former Australian Prime Minister.

Anyhow I got a wonderful Orange juice in the lovely town of Woodford, served by the wonderful Elvis Parsley.
Life is pretty good ♥
And the fantastic name for the fresh juicebar in Elvis's shop is: Return To Slender !!
If you want to visit Elvis, his address is Grapelands, 87, Archer Street, Woodford, Queensland 4514.

Day 53 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day 53 ♥
The weather here in South East Queensland has still been very conducive to a mono juice diet. The temperatures have been high, averaging about 32 degrees Centigrade/90 degrees Fahrenheit, and I have been really enjoying the heat and loving the early morning sun warming up my Oranges.
I have been juicing Oranges from a variety of sources, and it is nice to have a little variety. I have another order arriving on Friday, and I am thinking of ringing them up and asking for all of their littlest Valencias (which tend to be the real syrupy juice balls).
I am continuing to enjoy Dick Gregory's book, 'Natural Diet for Folks Who Eat: Cookin' With Mother Nature'.
Gregory has lived on fruit and veg juice (no solid food) for one and a half years at the time he was writing the book (1971) in protest of the Vietnam War. Apparently at the time he was well known for his water fasting and his juice diets. Dick Gregory was a very popular comedian, so I believe that  his dietary actions were pretty newsworthy.
It would be great if one of our present day entertainers followed Gregory's lead and brought a good example of awareness of diet and Natural Hygiene into the world of celebrity news.

I feel that I have been eliminating a bit today, I had more coating on my tongue than usual and my body felt like having more of a restful day; I did not feel tired or weak but just not drawn to do my usual workout. However, my skin is nice and clear.

The Oranges continue to be excellent in taste and ripeness ♥
For which I am very grateful ♥

♥ Day 52 ♥ Mono Orange Juice

Day 52 ♥
Today was kind of a special day for me because I reached the 52 day mark, which is the longest that I have previously gone, in this lifetime, on Orange juice.
I did a 52 day Orange juice diet back in 1995. It was a great experience and really helped to pave the way for me on a fruit diet. I found that after this 1995 Orange juice diet, I was better able to assimilate my fruit and I seemed to get more value from fruit —I just felt that the fruit I ate was doing me so much more good.
I ended my first 52 Orange juice diet, not because I felt ready to stop but because my friends and family were concerned about how much weight I had lost. Me, myself, I felt stronger than usual and had plenty of energy, but I was 28lbs less than my normal weight. This time around I am about 14lbs less than my 'normal' weight.
So that is an interesting difference. I am seeming to lose less weight each time I do an extended mono Orange juice diet.
Yesterday,I was looking at my 'Orange Juice Diaries' on my website
and I have lost less weight this time than I did on a 26 mono Orange juice diet two and a half years ago in May 2007.

However, I do think that weight loss is a factor to take into account in mono Orange juice diets. I am feeling now that I am getting to the stage where I look pretty thin. I feel great and feel strong and energetic—more so than on a mixed fruit diet — but I can appreciate that I might not look so strong!

I am just loving the Syrup Ball Oranges, they are so wee, but so packed with flavour.
I desire and enjoy them so much. And I do not feel the need or desire for any other fruits when I have them by my side ♥

I am also really enjoying dancing and exercising ♥

Day 51 Mono Orange Juice

Day 51 ♥
Today I went to a couple of local markets; one had good live music, the other good Oranges - so I was pretty happy.
Cappi got an all-fruit ice-cream from the Eumundi markets.
There is a guy there with a stall called 'Pulp Addiction' and he sells frozen fruit put through a Champion juicer. Cappi gets a large tub with Mango, Banana, and Pineapple, so he was a happy chappie too.
I found some small nicely ripe Biodynamic Valencias.
I was carrying two big bags of them when one of my bags split and there were little syrup balls rolling all around the pavement; some kind souls stopped to help me retrieve them before they rolled away into the road.

My tongue seems to be getting less coated, and my skin has gone nice and clear. A while back I was getting some elimination through the skin. I have found, however, that if I deep breath when I am getting elimination through the skin, the deep breathing helps to clear the skin.
I think because toxins are then being released more via the breathing and less through the skin. Also the extra oxygen is great for skin health, and helps speed up any elimination.

The sunshine has also been wonderful here at the moment; a great aide to elimination, skin health, and feeling wonderful.

Fruity Fare ♥
Morning - 10 syrup balls and 1 big Valencia, juiced in my mouth.
Midday - 7 syrup balls, juiced in my mouth
Afternoon - 12 syrup balls, juiced in my mouth

Fruitful Exercise ♥
40 minutes fast walking
15 minutes weights.

Have Beautiful Days ♥
Love, Peaches, and Sunshine XXX.
