I have a short and interesting article about Arnold Ehret – written by K.S. Jaffrey – author and health educator from 1930-1998 – communicated with Ehret during his lifetime.
If you would like a copy – pls let me know.
Hey Kevin, that would be awesome. Can you message it to me on my facebook page? Much appreciated!
want to try it for sure…
I'd recommend starting by trying it for one day, then two, then 3. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend going weeks out of the blue personally. Some people may be able to do it but it can be dangerous too! so just be safe and smart!
