There’s something very special about dates when it comes to my personal experience feasting on them for over a year now, as someone that consumes a diet of all fruit, 100% raw, 95% of the time. Mangoes are my hydrater, lymph moving fruit, and preferred fruit for taste pleasure, and dates are my kidney buster fruit, I use as a stable, to ether clean, or “spasm” my kidneys, to help them filter lymph!
It’s still a mystery to why dates help the kidneys to filter, but they without question do, and it’s not the astringency ether. Is it the alkalinity that buffers acids? The minerals that activate the adrenal glands to spasm the kidneys, because the adrenals control them? Do dates absorb excess water, so that the kidneys are relaxed, and this creates more energy for the body to move lymph to the kidneys for elimination? I don’t know? and nobody has a clear cut answer that has done the experiment.
Whether you do a lemon juice and date “fast” or just fast on dates for a day without water, you eat dates before a time restricted dry fast, and brake your restricted dry fast with dates, whether you eat mangoes all day, and then have dates 2-3 hours before you go to bed, dates seem to always do their job to help the kidneys filter, and this is why I’m going to assume that dates are like a “kidney herb” if you will, in the sense that they help the kidneys to filter like a good kidney formula would, and this is why I recommend dates in your detoxification protocol on a fruit diet to help your kidneys to filter!
I believe dates are best consumed last thing before bed when the body is at rest, and this seems to be the time they are most effective, but I have also experienced filtering right after consuming dates mid day as well! And this is why I think that quite possibly dates spasm the kidneys.
Remember also that dates dry, or fresh are extremely alkaline as well as fresh and dry figs, so they also could be buffering acids due to the alkalinity ratio being high? Who knows! It makes me laugh to this day in all due respect, that some people think that dates are creating waste in the body, and it’s the toxicity of the dates that is being filtered out, not stagnant lymph in the body ? it truly makes me laugh, because this is not at all a reality, and you must understand what your filtering out of the body in the first place, and it’s not “toxic fruit residue” it’s ACIDS! my friends, and the sediment looks no different when eating dates, then when eating fresh organic grapes!
When you get the acids out, the body can heal itself, and anyone that knows about kidney filtration, and has dealt with chronic pain, can tell you, that when they start filtering for several days, and months, the pain starts to come out of the body, so if pain is coming out, then it’s quite obvious what the sediment is in your pee jar, when you check for kidney filtration, and it’s acids, because it’s the acid side of chemistry that causes pain in the first place.
Dates don’t create an acid ash, and they alkalize the body, so the sediment is not created from the dates, because dates again are highly alkaline and raw. Yes sun dried organic dates are still raw, and alkaline!
Whether you have experimented with the sweet fruit dry fast system I created, or the date and lemon protocol to help the kidneys filter metabolitic waste, what I have learned, is it doesn’t matter how you go about doing it, because I filter on dates when I eat them last meal 2-3 hours before bed, regardless of the fruit or vegetable I ate that day, and this is why I think it’s quite possible that dates clean, buffer, or absorb acids in the body, or spasm the kidneys, which helps them filter lymph that you steered up on a fruit based raw food diet that promotes, and encouraged regenerative detoxification.
I think it’s important to focus on a diet of astringent water rich fruit to move lymph without question! You need to focus on the water rich fruits to get all your hydration, and clean and scrub the walls of the intestines, and to electrically move lymph interstitially, I’m just saying that dates seem to be a great addition to this program, like a good kidney/bladder herbal formula would be.
If your going to eat dates at your last meal, then I highly recommend you brush your teeth before, and after consuming them. They are very sticky fruits, and they could lock on fruit citric acids to the teeth, and this can cause irritation to the gums, for those that have weak, sensitive gums, and teeth. I just swish with baking soda before and after consuming them, and this helps take care of that possible blow back, and I also happen to have sensitive gums, which I believe is parathyroid related, and poor connective tissue there. If you brush your teeth, and they bleed, then you most likely want to look into your parathyroid gland, so you can go after your parathyroid gland for detoxification, and regeneration.
Dates also happen to be a fruit high in minerals, and the adrenal glands are responsible for the utilization of minerals, so it could be quite possible that dates, turn on the adrenals in the sense of utilizing minerals, and this plays a role with activating them, which in return creates better kidney function, because the adrenals sit on top of the kidneys, and control them. It’s just a thought to consider, and it doesn’t hurt consuming a fruit packed with minerals and nutrition ether! ?
If your kidneys are stubborn to filter, and your desperate to heal, then I highly recommend eating at least 6-15 organic if possible, sun dried or fresh dates, and I prefer medjool dates for flavor, and that’s what I experimented with the most, 2-3 hours before bed, and to also go to bed early as well, because going to bed to late, means little sleep, and rest is important for the body to self heal, when your on a diet and lifestyle that promotes natural healing.
Dates for the win in my opinion, and any fruit that helps the kidneys to filter should be consumed, because without kidney filtration, I don’t know how it’s possible to heal and regenerate, because without draining the swamp (lymphatic system) then acids stay at home in interstitial spaces, which cause dysfunction to bodily function, as that pertains to cells in the human body.
Thanks to Robert Morse ND we have this amazing information about kidney filtration, and the great lymphatic system, because without his knowledge and expertise, we wouldn’t even know to experiment, to find ways to filter the kidneys on a fruit based raw food diet, and because we have this amazing foundation of truth, let’s continue to build on it, and experiment with the fruits and herbs Mother Nature has provided to us, that cleans the body of its sewage, that we have created as humans living on the wrong side of chemistry (ACIDS) for way to long.
Get back to nature my friends, get back to a diet that your biological design to eat, tap into your intuitive Consciousness, let your instincts guide you, live in the present moment, and I promise you my friends you will thrive!
