Hydrocephalus is a disorder characterized by excessive accumulation of fluid in the brain. This liquid, which was known as water in the past, is actually cerebrospinal fluid, a colored substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord and which has many functions, including protecting brain, transporting nutrients and oxygen, collecting and disposing nutrients, and it compensates for changes in intracranial blood volume.
If this cerebral fluid accumulates excessively, causes an abnormal dilation in the brain in the ventricles spaces, which causes potentially harmful pressure on delicate brain tissue.
To treat this condition you should consider a basic diet and certain foods that help systems and organs to self-regulate and balance, and which complement a complete cure.
Why is diet important to treat hydrocephalus?
Because through the food, we can nourish and help the body to remove toxins, fat and unnecessary and harmful chemicals that eventually accumulate and cause what is known as toxemia, which is an excessive accumulation of toxins and chemicals in the body that break its proper operation, warming over the body and making it an ideal environment for the spread of viruses and bacteria, as well as the blood is acidified and the intestines are obstructed, this will prevent the body to function properly and cause damage, deteriorating and destroying systems, organs and tissues, creating a poor environment where prone to diseases.
The real cure is not in the medicine, but in a series of activities where the body can be cleansed, nourished, and restored a good flow of energy and healthy blood. Thus the body regains its balance and will become strong and healthy.
The body has the amazing ability to create its own medicines; it has the capacity for self-healing, self-regulation, self-balanced and self-regenerate. These functions are carried out every day, and only require the essential elements for the correct functioning.
How is the diet?
The first thing to do is to perform a cleansing diet as the next:
- Choose two days where you can rest and focus on the diet.
- Choose a fruit, either pineapple or grapes. This fruit is eaten for two days of debugging. You can eat as much as you want, the rule is to eat only the fruit, without adding sugar or salt or anything else. Remember, now your health is more important than your palate. If you pick grapes, must eat those with seeds and chew the seeds. You can eat one day one fruit and the next one the other.
- In this two-day diet, you should drink two liters of water during the day.
- Before you start to eat your fruit, you should start the day with fasting two teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil with a squeeze of lemon.
- Three days before starting the diet, you should not eat any products of animal origin such as milk, eggs, meats, etc.
After the cleansing diet...
Once you finish the starter diet, then you will continue with the following nutritional guidelines:
Avoid: sugar and refined flour, meat, dairy or animal origin sausages, vinegars, irritants (such as vinegar, chile, coffee or chocolate), processed or junk food.
Recommended foods: fresh vegetables and salad or juice, fruit juices, seeds, oil seeds, nuts, whole grains, dairy milks (soy, nut, oat, etc.), teas and herbs.
Foods you should include in your daily diet: Chia (take a teaspoon a day), yeast (half a teaspoon a day), Spirulina (three times per week), chlorophyll (three times a week, dissolve a teaspoon in a glass and drink), extra virgin olive oil (one teaspoon daily on an empty stomach), a clove of raw garlic (daily, fasting or at night), aloe juice (half a cup a day mixed with carrot juice), dry fruit (between meals), ginger (a bit raw on the size of your thumb, either bite or do a smoothie with orange juice), infusion of green tea.
