There are many herbs, supplements, flours, sweeteners and other items you can buy, but what do I recommend? In the beginning I went broke ordering everything and I came up with some companies I really liked and herbs I found the most beneficial. Now I can give you a few items you must have based on daily needs and based on Dr. Sebi's Nutritional Guide.
First let's look at cleansing herbs:
You need 3 herbs: Cascara Sagrada, Rhubarb Root and Prodijiosa. The cost of these 3 herbs are very minor. But they are a must. Total cost may change but as of the writing of the article, the cost was approximately $43 plus shipping.
To make the protocol, you need 1/2 cup of cascara sagrada and 1/2 cup of rhubarb root and 1/8 cup of prodijiosa. Make capsules and take 2 to 3 capsules daily for 7 days.
I really like the products from Frontier and from Best Botanicals and 3rd in line would be Starwest Botanicals. So let's order:
Cascara Sagradra - Buy here -8 oz or 16 oz
Rhubarb Root - Buy Here - 1 lb
Prodijiosa - Buy Here - 8 oz.
The two main supplements that Dr. Sebi recommended were Bromide mix and Green food plus. They are both so easy to make. We recommend 1 tablespoon of Bromide Mix daily and 4 capsules or 1 teaspoon of Green Food Plus. I personally take 8 capsules daily or 2 teaspoons of powder of the Green Food Plus formula. I have had many people tell me that while fasting 3 capsules of Green Food Plus was not enough. This is the amount Dr. Sebi Recommended in his fasting videos. So let's make some supplements.
Bromide Plus: You need Sea Moss Powder and Bladderwrack Powder. You need equal amounts of each. So if you buy 4 ounces of Seamoss, you need 4 ounces of Bladderwrack Powder. Seamoss has 92 of the 102 nutrients your body needs. Burdock has the other 10. If you want to have a complete formula add in some burdock. So the correct ratio is 1 cup of Seamoss, 1 cup of Burdock and 2/10th cup of burdock. Now I add in 1 tablespoon of Bromide to my smoothies. If you want to make capsules, you will need 15 capsules if you use size 00 capsules and you will need 21 capsules per day if you use size 0). Now you can divide the capsules throughout the day or take 5 capsules with each meal.
My recommendations for the minimal effect include the basic herbs, but part of the diet is the foods, the flours and extras we need. The Nutritional Guide will show you what you can buy at the grocery store, ie fruits and veggies, but there are other things you must buy elsewhere. This section will discuss the minimal requirements.
First the sweeteners we use are Agave or date sugar or you can use date syrup. I add date syrup to my smoothies daily. I add around one dallop as we say in Kentucky or around a heaping tablespoon. Agave comes in many types but the best one in my opinion is Wholesome Agave and the best date syrup is from this brand.
FLOURS AND GRAINS: While you are allowed multiple flours and grains, for the minimalist you could buy only spelt flour. It is used in almost all recipes and is very good tasting. You can use this in a multitude of recipes from waffles to breakfast rolls. Even if the recipe calls for kamut, you could use spelt flour. Spelt flour is easily bought in bulk sacks also.
I am not a fan of the boxed pastas available and they are expensive for the amount you get. I prefer instead to make homemade pasta. If you do not have a pasta maker you can make it without and simply roll out on a cutting board and hang the pasta on a hanger to dry. If I was to buy pasta, again it would be the spelt pasta. There are multiple brands and types. Keep in mind you cannot cook pasta like you would wheat. It will melt in the soup. Put it in the soup or stew at the end and only allow enough time for cooking.
