Body Detox

To manage the symptoms of myasthenia gravis, body detox is a must. Use foods for regular detoxification, further rejuvenation, and daily maintenance.

Alfalfa sprouts

Alfalfa sprouts are excellent “health food.” Recent research shows that in addition to being a superb source of nutrients, they also have important cleansing ability due to their concentrated amounts of phytochemical (plant compounds).

Sprout some alfalfa seeds at home for your daily salad or soup. Fresh alfalfa sprouts are also obtainable at some supermarkets.


Beets help you detoxify your liver and blood while providing important support nutrients to your body. By providing nutrients critical to liver function and healthy kidneys, beets break down toxins before they accumulate in your liver. In addition, the vitamins and other nutrients contained in beets also enable proper fat absorption, transportation, and metabolism. Include fresh beets in your vegetable juice or salad.


Burdock, a carrot-like root grown in China, Europe, and the United States, has a sweet taste and a sticky texture. It is a good source of minerals and essential oils. As such, burdock serves as a staple vegetable in Japan.

Burdock, with its potent anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, is a popular folk medicine around the world. As a main source for a variety of herbal preparations, it serves also as a diuretic and, more recently, as a tea (Essiac tea) in the treatment of cancer and a number of other maladies.

Burdock is a potent “blood purifier” which clears toxins from your bloodstream by enhancing the function of many organs of elimination, including your liver, kidneys and bowels. For example, it induces sweating as an aid in neutralizing and eliminating toxins, thereby instrumental in helping your kidneys to filter uric acid from your bloodstream.

Burdock is a very safe herb and food product. However, consider the source and quality prior to purchasing burdock root due to the possible contamination of the root. If available, buy organic burdock.
Put fresh burdock in your soup, or make a drink of burdock by simmering it in boiling water for 10 minutes (you can repeat the process until its taste is gone).

Green barley

The young barley leaf is a green cereal grass that contains the greatest and most perfectly balanced concentration of nutrients found in nature. It contains enzymes, minerals, many vitamins, including Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and B vitamins, and has the perfect balance of amino acids, essential fatty acids, carotenoids, bioflavonoids and chlorophyll, supplied in their proper balance as Nature has perfectly provided. The chlorophyll in green barley, which is the substance allowing plants to photosynthesize, has the ability to break down carbon dioxide and release oxygen, thereby enabling the destruction of anaerobic bacteria.

Green barley, in addition to its natural form, is available in capsules or power.


Rice is one of man’s oldest foods. First introduced in Asia around 3,000 B.C., rice has become a staple food of the Asian diet, with some 300 pounds consumed per person each year. However, in the United States, the average American consumes only about 20 pounds per year.

Brown rice (organic) is a light, gluten-free food, which is easily digestible and rich in antioxidant. Brown rice protein is essential to tissue detoxification.

If you can boil water, you can cook rice. Rice is most versatile—you can eat rice even as a dessert.
Eat only brown rice, not white rice, because most of the nutrients in white rice have been stripped.

Herbs to detoxify

Your body is a self-cleansing mechanism, which utilizes your liver, kidneys, urine, feces, breath, and sweat to detoxify your toxins.

Herbs can provide you with safe, natural, time-tested methods to improve the natural functions of your body to continue to support its natural cleansing process to enhance your immune system

Some of the most common herbs for detoxification include: black walnut; cascara sagrada; cayenne; dandelion; echinacea; fennel seed; Indian rhubarb root; licorice root; milk thistle; psyllium husk; red clover; slipper elm inner bark; yarrow

These herbs not only promote efficient elimination but also boost your immunity and wellness.
