Detailed Description of Ideal daily schedule:

  1. Get up from bed early in the morning, between 4 and 6 am. Drink 1.25 to 1.50 liters water. Keep your mind on intestines concentrated. Move around. You will be rushed for first round of ablution.
  2. After 30 minutes of taking first round of water exert body by walk or exercise or yoga or some work for an hour until it perspires. This helps muscles, veins and blood circulation.
  3. Drink another 1 to 1.50 liters of water after physical exercise. Concentrate and try for second ablution. If it happens freely it is all right otherwise giveup the effort.
  4. If one does not have free ablution after the above routine or has only a little or unsatisfactory ablution or those with a history of chronic constipation - better go for enema after the second dose of water intake. Enema may be continued till digestive system comes back to normalcy.
  5. Stop taking coffee and tea. Fresh juice better in the morning. Juice of raw vegetables is a waking up call for intestines. Drink juice of snake gourd, ribbed gourd, bottle gourd, cucumber, carrot, tomato, beetroot etc. Add four spoons of honey (one or two for diabetics) and limejuice to it. It can also be taken without filtering it if it is ground softy. Otherwise, any fresh fruit juice or limejuice with honey is also good.
  6. After one hour of drinking juice eat any food for breakfast take sprouted cereals or beans as breakfast. But they are not helpful for those who have constipation. And those who are required to go for enema in the morning should eat papaya, pomegranate, clustered apple, mango, dates etc. for breakfast. They generate hunger. They are easily digestible, and move freely down the intestines. Diabetics should not eat fruits. Those who have no gas problem and are not hungry should immediately start eating sprouted beans, raw coconut, and dates e in the morning. Sprouted cereals and beans should be soaked in water in the morning, drained in the night and tied in a cloth to drain water. After two days they sprout. If you are a diabetic don't eat dates. After one week of stopping enema one can eat sprouts. 10 to 15 dates can be eaten a day.
  7. Take one liter of water in installments after two hours from breakfast and half an hour before lunch.
  8. Take lunch between 1 and 2 P.M. Do not eat white rice. Eat cooked brown rice or Wheat bread (rotis/pulkas) without oil. The vegetables to be eaten in lunch should weigh at least one pound/half a kilogram. Salt, oil, ghee, sweats, dry chili and spices
