On the evening of the sixth day, the fasting person should take two glasses of water with Epsom salt. Before going to sleep the fasting person takes freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and olive oil. The next day, one takes a further two portions of Epsom salt. It is advisable to repeat the treatment at least six times with an interval of four weeks. The apple juice can be replaced with malic acid.
