Diet For The Acutely Ill





Category: Diet and Nutrition
Source: How And When To Be Your Own Doctor

The acutely ill person experiences occasional attacks of distressing
symptoms, usually after indiscretions in living or emotional upsets.
They have a cold, or a flu, or sinusitis, or a first bout of
pneumonia, or a spring allergy attack. The intense symptoms knock
them flat and force them to bed for a few days or a week. If they
are sick more often than that, they are moving toward the
chronically ill category.

People who are acutely ill should stop eating to whatever extent
that they are able until the symptoms are gone. During an acute
illness, the appetites is probably pretty dull anyway, so why not
give a brief fast on water or fruit juice a try.

Most acute conditions are short in duration, usually not lasting
more than a week. Allergy attacks, some types of flu, and a first
bout of pneumonia may well last for three weeks or a month. The
general rule is to eat as little as possible until the symptoms have
passed, self-administer colon cleansing, even if you have a horror
of such things, and take vitamin supplements, including megadoses of
Vitamin C, bioflavinoids, and zinc. (See the chapter on vitamins.)
Those having a little experience with natural medicine make teas of
echinacea, fenugreek seeds and red clover and quit eating. Eating as
little as possible can mean only water and herb teas, only vegetable
broth, only vegetable juice or non-sweet fruit juice, even only
cleansing raw foods. If you eat more than this you have not relieved
your system of enough digestive effort.

After your symptoms are gone it is very important to change your
life-style and improve your diet so that you aren't so toxic and
don't have to experience an acute illness several times a year when
your body is forced to try an energetic detox.
