As an act of detoxification and cleansing, I have undertaken to complete a 10 day diet of brown rice, sesame seeds and soy sauce.
I first heard of George Ohsawa’s Diet number 7 in Koh Phangan during our Agama Yoga courses. Since then I’ve completed two 10 day regimes and can attest to the positive effects the diet gives.
In addition to cleansing the blood, what I also realised was that if the diet is undertaken with mindfulness and equanimity, it becomes a strong tool for de-addiction from food cravings. Thats good news for my body, as I’ve been going really heavy on gluten, dairy and sugars since coming to USA.
