11. Some Plants Also Should Be Rejected
It must not be forgotten that not all products or derivations of the plant kingdom are recommended for use as food: (cranberries, chard, beet greens, spinach - see Lessons on oxalic acid); coffee, tea, chocolate, etc. hail from the plant kingdom too; as do oleomargarine and other hard vegetable fats, all of which are emphatically not recommended.
It should also be remembered that foods or plant products should not be used as medicines. Your health food store's shelves abound with such "Miraculous cures" as apricot kernels, ginseng, etc. See the article "Plant Products and Effects" in this lesson.
When you abandon animal products, also bear in mind that you must judiciously select your foods from the plant kingdom, rejecting those which contain toxic substances in nutritionally significant amounts, and rejecting the use of foods or plants for medicinal or "curative" purposes. As you have learned, there are no "cures."
The only source of healing is your own body, and the only way you can help is by providing ideal conditions for the implementation of its own self-healing power. Such conditions are optimum during a fast, and the healing effect is consolidated and multiplied when the fast is followed by Hygienic eating and living.
