sun for 6-8 hours. Fill up the bottle 2/3 full of water. Move the bottle
indoors in the evening before sunset. The green and blue water should be
taken prior to the evening meal and in the early morning on an empty stomach,
one cup at a time. Drink Ό cup of orange water minutes after the meal. Continue
the treatment as long as the disease is not under control. Putting oil in
the sun for 30 days gets it ready for use. Do not try this treatment unless

bile, and phlegm (cough). Gas, bile, and phlegm is related with age - gas-related
