DISCLAIMER: CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR BEFORE DECIDING ON A TREATMENT PLAN FOR ANY DISEASE OR INJURY.
What defines a “healthy diet”? The truth is that this actually can vary significantly from person to person. Some people’s bodies need a higher amount of protein, while other people feel just fine with comparatively limited amounts of protein, for example. Dr. Gonzalez was even able to divide the categories of dietary needs into over 10 different categories!
Nevertheless, to avoid overcomplicating diet and nutrition (most people are already somewhat ambivalent about dietary changes, after all) there are some simple ground rules to follow in the vast majority of cases:
- No processed or refined foods – this includes foods like white sugar, white flour, white rice, as well as anything you’d classify as “junk food” (potato chips, Little Debbie cakes, oreos, cheetos, lunch meat, bacon, etc).
- DO eat whole foods or packaged food products that consist only of whole foods and that contain 5 or fewer ingredients. This includes things like apples (a whole food), free-range chicken (a whole food), and whole wheat pasta (a packaged food that should have fewer than 5 ingredients, all of which should be whole foods).
- Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables – Ideally, the fruits and vegetables you eat should either be raw, steamed, boiled, or juiced. Aim to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables whenever possible (as an example, Ayurvedic medicine tells people to “eat the rainbow”, meaning that you should eat fruits and veggies of a variety of different colors).
- Incorporate in some beans, lentils, nuts, and seeds – These foods contain nutrients that may not be present in the same high quantities in fruits, veggies, or meats. They are a good source of protein and energy and lend themselves well to snack foods or easy dinner time foods (meals made with beans and lentils also freeze well, so you can make meals in advance using these).
- Eat some animal products – Choose free-range, organic meats and animal products. Unless you have access to raw, unpasteurized milk from a neighbor’s cow (or similar), or can purchase beef from a reputable facility that lets its cows graze on grass and treats them well, steer clear of any and all cow-related products. Also avoid pork since it may contain the parasite Trichinella spiralis, which causes a food-borne disease known as Trichinosis. Obviously, accidentally infecting yourself with a parasite by eating pork while trying to treat yourself for a health problem with MMS/CDS is counterproductive.
Many goat’s milk products, free-range eggs, free-range chicken and turkey meat, and buffalo meat are generally good, healthy animal product choices. When using CDS to treat a health problem, most people will benefit from following a diet that consists of 5% or less in animal products. Animal products require more energy for the body to digest, so minimizing their intake during healing is usually best since it makes it possible for the body to spend its energy on rebuilding and healing rather than only on digestion.
NOTE: I do not advocate for a vegan diet. The vegan diet is severely deficient in many nutrients, especially vitamin B12, no matter whether you’re taking nutritional supplements or not. A vegetarian diet that still includes a healthy amount of animal products can be acceptable, but a vegan diet is never healthy over the long term.
- Drink plenty of water and other healthy liquids – Water is essential for detoxification, rebuilding, and various other functions in the body. Not having enough water during the day can seriously impair your body’s ability to heal successfully. Other healthy liquids that you can drink during the day include freshly made juices and tea.
Other Healthy Diets for MMS/CDS Treatment
Some people may be following a specialty diet (or prefer a more specialized diet) while they’re taking MMS/CDS. Here are some diets to consider that work well with MMS/CDS:
The keto diet has been known to be a valuable healing diet for various conditions, including PCOS, Multiple Sclerosis, diabetes, degenerative disease, and more (though contrary to popular belief it does not work to treat cancer). This diet involves eating primarily proteins and fats, with limited carbohydrates, in order to switch the body into using ketones instead of glucose for energy. This diet may be the ideal choice for some people treating certain conditions, and it can go well with an MMS/CDS protocol. The same guidelines for healthy eating still apply, though the proportions of different food groups will be different (instead of focusing on lots of fresh produce, you’ll be eating beans, nuts, seeds, animal products, and other fresh foods with healthy fats and proteins).
If you choose to follow a ketogenic diet while implementing an MMS/CDS protocol, consider taking pancreatic enzymes at the same time to encourage healthy digestion and detoxification.
The Gerson Diet is primarily an anti-cancer diet, but its rules can be applied to the treatment of other health problems, too. Most people agree that it’s quite strict, but it’s also highly effective, particularly if you have someone to help you prepare the foods and juices. While following this diet, make sure to be aware of the rules for eating on MMS/CDS protocols (particularly when it comes to juices).
The Budwig Protocol involves many of the healthy eating guidelines discussed above in addition to eating the Budwig Quark smoothie at least once a day while sitting out in the sun. The Budwig Smoothie is an ideal combination of proteins and fats designed to re energize your cells by replacing worn out, unhealthy peptides around each cell membrane with new, energized, healthy fats and oils. In essence, it recalibrates your whole body from the inside out. The Budwig Smoothie should (whenever possible, climate permitting) be eaten while sitting in the sun with as much skin exposed as possible. The sunlight helps to activate the proteins and fats in the smoothie.
The Budwig Smoothie can be taken as a breakfast or as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack. You may mix fruits like bananas, fresh berries, mango, or others in with it and top with freshly made granola, nuts, or seeds to enhance its flavor and make it into a substantial, filling meal or snack. It’s very simple to make:
- 2 tablespoons of cottage cheese (you may substitute full-fat coconut cream, almond milk, rice milk, or goat’s milk if preferred)
- 1 tablespoon of cold-pressed, organic flaxseed oil
Combine the two ingredients in a blender (you may double or triple the portions above if needed/wanted) until they are smooth and there is no separation. Then you may add raw honey, stevia drops, or monk fruit to sweeten, and add a fruit of your choice (banana, berries, etc). Blend to combine, and then eat immediately while sitting in the sun.
