Golden Milk recipe

Chyawanprash is an ayurvedic tonic, a mixture of herbs infused with amla fruit and sesame oil. According to legend, chyawanprash was developed by an elderly sage called Chyawan, who created the formula to rejuvenate himself so as not to burden his much-younger bride.

Or how about a 40 day green food mono diet ?

to re-alkalinize the body, detoxify the liver and blood, and help with weight loss

green diet

Yogi Bhajan suggested that a mono diet may have merit over a fast . 
The body can relax and turn its attention to areas that need repair;  green healing foods create a more alkaline state keeping disease at bay.
Some examples of green foods you can choose from

Green Apples, Sultana Grapes, Kiwis, Sultana Raisins, Figs, Pears
Marrows, Courgettes, Broccoli, Dill, Parsley, Spring Onion, Cucumber, Rocket, Lettuce, Green Olives, Green Chillies, Wheatgrass Juice Pistachios, Pumpkin Seeds, Mung Beans, Nori Sheets, Olive Oil, Spirulina, Chlorella, Avocadoes, Jasmine Tea, Green Tea
All Herbal Teas, Lemon Juice, Fructose, Honey, Yogi Tea, Soya Sauce, Herbal Salt, Spices, Store-bought Apple Juice,

This green diet is very alkalising, bringing oxygen to rejuvenate your cells. You will be able to breathe better and more deeply, so your body will shed accumulated mucous from the lungs and the digestive system.  

Toxins can be released from the tissues and you may notice some weight loss as the body returns to a balanced state.

It may be advisable for you to consult with your health advisor before trying this program. You should not embark on this cleanse if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or undernourished.


I highy recommend this product which is in a powder format you add to water . It contains 12 chlorophyll-rich green foods including organic spirulina, chlorella, kale sprouts, wheat grass juice, nettles and arctic fresh seaweed. To help purifiy, alkalise and strengthen your body.
