- WHO IS
Over the last few years, every morning I start the day doing the Tai-Chi form of Sun Lu Tan (1861-1933) , listening to “Wu-Wei” played by Christopher Walcott and sung by Jeu-ChenPon. Zaya Reyes introduced me to this old Chinese martial art in a very unmartial way, which I deeply appreciated. I do not like mystic approaches to anything, but I can value accumulated empirical wisdom and appreciate real effects. I even learned (more or less) the fundamental rules for doing Tai-Chi in the proper way .
I love lemons for many reasons. “Mojitos” are a miraculous drink, and the best way you can prepare a whole chicken is “a la suppositoire”: you insert a peeled lemon and a bouillon cube through the backend of the animal, cover it all with foil and straight to the oven. Just delicious!
Well, having exposed that I am something more than a ‘wineocrat’ and that I respect, but obviously do not share, the vegetarians’ view about keeping healthy, I have found lemons to be a fantastic solution for resetting the body.
The formula for cleaning the pipes is the following: Mix 160 ml of maple syrup with 160 ml of lemon juice (freshly squeezed) and 1580 ml of water. I also add some cayenne pepper, just for taste. That makes two litre, which is enough for a day. Drink every two hours (8 am, 10 am, 12 am …) a glass (200 ml) of this beverage, and that’s all. You eat nothing else. Detox starts about the second or third day (normally with a headache) and thereafter, I feel just great and abnormally lucid. I do this for a week or ten days; never more than two weeks.
There is no fixed period for repeating this detox. I just listen to my body, which sets off the alarm normally once a year or every two years. It depends on what kind of junk food I’ve been eating.
