2013 is fast becoming the summer of the liver flush. Our local members have discovered the fun and cleansing benefit of flushing the liver. There is a whole lot of liver flushing going on. ELF parties are popping up all over. An ELF Party can be a fun end to a beneficial week of juice fasting.
Below are a few guide lines and suggestion for planning an ELF party.
First and most important find a group of like-minded family members or friends who want to do some serious cleansing work. Two or three people will do, six or seven will round out a great party.
Plan an introductory evening get together with all your party people. At this time provide everyone with details of the adventure they are beginning. A packet containing the following items would be a huge help: Juicing combination suggestions, Liver Flushing E-book, Foundational E-Book, and anything else you feel would be helpful.
The week before the juice fast everyone must make sure the Foundational programs are in place: Boosting with Echinacea and that the bowels are open and working well. Beginning use of the Superfood during this pre-fast week is also an excellent idea. Provide the party guest several good juicing combination suggestions. Provide these now before they go veggie shopping. There are many juicing recipes on line. Look around find a few that seem interesting. Below are two of my favorites.
My morning juice is a combination of:
- ½ Cantaloupe
- ¼ Honey dew Mellon
- 2 Apples
- 2 Pears
- 2 to 4 cups Dark Leafy Greens (Chard or Kale)
For Lunch I make the following Vegetable Juice:
- 4 Tomatoes
- 2 bunches of Parsley
- ¼ Red Onion
- 1 Large Cucumber
- 2 stalks Celery
- 1 Bell Pepper
- 1 Green Hot Pepper (Optional)
- 1 Lime
The last two days before the juice fast is to begin everyone is to eat only raw food. Some may want to plan a raw food menu for those fairly new to the idea of eating raw.
The night before the juice fast is to begin throw a raw food feast kick-off party. The night’s entertainment, if possible, must be playing the inspirational DVD, “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead”.
During the five to seven days juice fast stay in touch with your party guests. A daily check in time for each guest would be an excellent idea. You can also use the buddy system in larger groups.
*Remember to keep those bowels open and comfortable
The last evening of the Juice Fast will be the ELF Party Night. Plan a sleep over.
- You will need plenty of Castor Oil & Flannel and a package of Press & Seal Wrap for the Castor Oil packs.
- Fresh Ginger, Olive Oil, and Grape Fruit juice for the Liver Flush Drink
- Make a large pot of Detox tea for sipping while warming the castor oil packs.
- Everyone will need to bring their own heating pad.
- Plenty of Digestive Tonic & LG/AP Formula for anyone who develops an upset stomach
When dealing with nausea during a liver flush I would suggest 1 tsp. Digestive Tonic and 1 tsp. LP formula mixed together in an ounce or two of water. Knock this mix back. (Drink all in one swallow, DO NOT SIP) This will settle any system where the bowels are open and working well.
Eat Raw for two days then introduce cooked food. IF you do okay eating your cooked food proceed with a normal food plan. IF cooked food is not agreeing with you eat raw a few more days before resuming a regular food plan.
