It is DAY 5 of "Green Juicing With Omega" to celebrate our AMAZING Omega Juicer Giveaway. Don't miss out on your chance to win one of FIVE Omega Vert VRT350 Masticating Juicers. We continue with this simple Apple Persimmon Parasite Cleansing Juice I got from HEINERMAN'S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF HEALING JUICES. For those of you who didn't see my post on the facebook page or read some of the previous posts, this book is my juicing BIBLE. Even though it was written decades ago, and some of the information is slightly out of date, it remains the most comprehensive book about the healing power of juices I have read. 

When I found out I had intestinal parasites a couple of months ago, I turned to my juicing bible for support. It turns out UNripen persimmons have been incredibly effective in various parts of Africa for getting rid of intestinal parasites. The nasty taste is apparently as repelling to parasites as it is to us! I recently did a parasite cleanse and found this juice INCREDIBLE. I can personally attest to it's effectiveness.

Note: ripe persimmons are not effective for ridding the body of parasites. For the most potent parasite cleanse, drink 1/2 cup of straight persimmon juice on an empty stomach morning and night until all intestinal parasites have been cleared out of the intestinal tract. This can be weeks. If you can't drink the bitter juice straight, mixing it with equal parts of fresh apple juice is a tasty alternative. The powerful laxative properties in the apples make for a "parasites be gone!" cleansing party! 

I highly recommend daily colonics whilst engaging in a parasite cleanse to help expel the little beasts. You can also don't want the toxicity staying in your body or allowing the parasites to lay eggs in your intestinal tract. Instestinal parasites are extremely common, and can exist in you body for decades. They feed on the nutrients and alkaline buffers in your tissues and organs and wreak havoc in your system, leading to malabsorption of nutrients and disease. 

For those of you not familiar with persimmons, they are an interesting fruit native to Japan and China. In the U.S, the Hachiya persimmon is grown in California, and they have a short season from about October to January. Persimmons range in colour from light yellow-orange to dark red-orange depending on the species and variety. However, the most commonly consumed persimmons look like a deep orange-coloured tomato. When ripe, they have a waxy thin skin and a thick pulp-like jelly.  

The Hachiya persimmons are edible in their crisp firm state, but the high tannin content gives them a chalky, astringent, bitter taste. The tannin levels reduce as the fruit matures and the flavour sweetens when allowed to ripen after harvest. 

Persimmons contain valuable Vitamin A, C, K, as well as calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and sodium. Unripe persimmons also contain naturally occuring flouride, which makes it a wonderful natural dental aid. In Africa, the unripe fruit is cut in half and rubbed on the gums to prevent gingivitis and correct pyorrhea. It also helps clear up cold sores and canker sores, and blisters on the mouth. 

Unripe persimmon juice is also a very powerful topical solution for minor cuts, bleeding gums, and to prevent the worsening of varicose veins. Simply dab the juice onto the skin with a cotton pad. 

For those of you not concerned about parasites, allow your persimmons to fully ripen and blister, and mix them with leafy greens for a sweet delicious juice that is fabulously cleansing.

Tips!

How To Select, Store, & Ripen Persimmons

When selecting persimmons, choose those that are very firm amd colourful. Don't buy fruits that have started to ripen as they may be bruised.  Store and ripen persimmons at room temperature in a clean, dry container with other varieties of fruit that give off large quantities of ethylene such as apples, pears, and bananas. Once the skin blisters it is ready. Here's a fabulous trick: freeze a rock hard unripe persimmon until it is frozen solid. As it thaws, it will magically ripen. 

I hope I’m not being too intrusive, but how did you find out that you had intestinal parasites? Is it from a test done at a doctor’s office? Thank you.

reply

I don’t mind you asking at all. Sorry, I should have mentioned how I found out in the post. I will add it when I get home next week. My colon therapist told me, then an iridologist confirmed it. I was going to go to the doctor, but I didn’t need to, as I saw them come out during my colonic. Unbelievable. I am so glad I am rid of them. I hope this gives you some more insight.

Thank you, yes. Look forward to it.

Did you already think that you had them before your colonic?

reply

Pleasure. I suspected. I have travelled all over the world, in Asia etc and was eating all of this good food, and just didn’t feel at optimum health. It turns out the parasites were having a field day munching on all of my organic goodness! I feel SO much better now that they are gone!

Hello, What is a colonic? Is it a do it yourself at home type thing. And if there is many kinds, which one should would be best to used doing this 3-day fast/cleanse. Thanks.

reply

Debra, colon hydrotherapy is where a licensed practitioner helps to cleanse the colon with the use of water, and sometimes chlorophyll and other infusions to help cleanse and detoxify. It must be done with a reputable therapist. You can find out more information here:

You want to find somebody who does body work - massage, acupuncture, essential oils etc to help you release. But, you can do enemas yourself at home. Read the instructions in the 3 day cleanse post:
