Miracle Food: Apples and Pears

One of the great advantages of both of these fruits is that they are profoundly detoxifying, in particular for the digestive system. In fact, you can give you whole body a program of deep cleansing simply by eating nothing but apples and pears for a day. Both fruits are of benefit to your skin.

Besides ridding the body of toxins, apples and pears also strengthen the immune system, helping it to resist infection. Pears are particularly cleansing and have a high iodine content, which can aid thyroid function. Apples reduce cholesterol and also various forms of inflammation, most notably rheumatism, as well as soothing any inflammation caused by respiratory infection.
