Anthony William’s take on Sweet Potatoes
“Sweet Potatoes are an incredibly nutritious food that are packed with antioxidants like beta carotene, vitamins C, E & D, and minerals such as manganese and iron. They are also high in potassium which helps to lower blood pressure by removing excess sodium and regulating fluid balance in the body. Sweet potatoes are an excellent anti-stress food and are known to help relax muscles, steady nerves, and balance cognitive function. Sweet Potatoes are one of the best anti-cancer foodsand can particularly help to prevent breast, colon, lung, skin, and oral cancers.
Sweet potatoes are known for being easy to digest and are very good for ulcers, inflamed colons, digestive disorders, and constipation. Sweet potatoes contain compounds called phytochelatins that can bind to heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, & cadmium and safely remove them through the body.
Antiviral and anti-inflammatory, coconut kills EBV cells and reduces nodule growth. Helps support the central nervous system from exposure to EBV neurotoxins. Try it as coconut oil, coconut butter, dried coconut (if it’s unsweetened and unsulfured), coconut milk, and coconut water.”
Garlic is a highly beneficial anti-inflammatory for mucous membranes and bronchial tubes. Used long-term, garlic can ease breathing for undisturbed sleep. Plus, when you take magnesium glycinate, garlic’s traces of bioavailable magnesium engage the supplement so you can experience even better breathing and more restful sleep.
Lemons and Limes
Lemons and limes improve digestion by raising levels of hydrochloric acid (good acid) in the gut. Tone the intestinal lining, cleanse the liver, and offer replenishing calcium to prevent osteoporosis when EBV prompts nodule formation throughout the body, which uses up calcium stores. Lemons and limes also balance sodium levels in the blood, which allows for electrolytes to become active and improves the neurotransmitter activity that has been hampered by EBV neurotoxins causing brain fog and other neurological symptoms.
Avocado – the ‘mother’ of all foods
Avocado is one of the world’s most perfect foods. It is easily digested and contains over 25 essential nutrients including iron, copper, magnesium, and essential fatty acids that help the body to function optimally. Avocados increase the body’s ability to assimilate nutrients, so they are a wonderful addition to green leafy salads to ensure proper absorption of all the vitamins and minerals. They are also an excellent source of glutathione which helps to boost the immune system, strengthen the heart, rebuild the nervous system, and slow the aging process. The monounsaturated fats in avocados reverse insulin resistance which helps to steady blood sugar levels.
Tomatoes contain their own variety of vitamin C that’s bioavailable to the lymphatic system and liver, supports the immune system to keep it strong against EBV, and prohibits the virus from traveling through the body with ease. This vitamin C is also a support to the thyroid’s own immune system in the neck area. When growing, tomatoes absorb and collect the moonlight’s frequency at night, just as the thyroid collects the sun’s rays during the day (as you’ll read about in Chapter 25, “Thyroid Healing Techniques”). This means that when consumed, tomatoes strengthen the thyroid’s radio-like frequencies, helping to create balance and homeostasis with all of the body’s organs and glands.
Onions and Spring Onions/Scallions
Onions and spring onions (scallions for our American friends) are another fantastic resource for their sulfur content’s ability to confuse and knock down EBV while it nourishes the gland itself. As with cruciferous vegetables, that pungent quality is exactly what gives them their value. Onions are a big deal for fighting EBV—bottom line, a potent antiviral.
Coriander/Cilantro binds onto toxic heavy metals and MSG and flushes them from your system. When you take supplemental L-glutamine with coriander/cilantro, it boosts MSG removal and becomes a cofactor in heavy metal detoxification.

Sweet Potato Crisps/Chips Recipe
2 large sweet potatoes
2 teaspoons coconut oil (optional)
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon chili powder
⅛ teaspoon cayenne (optional)
Preheat the oven to 250°F. Using a mandoline or knife, slice the sweet potatoes into very thin rounds, approximately 1/16-inch thick if possible and no thicker than 1/8 inch. Make sure they are even and thin though not transparent. Bring a pot of water to boil. Place the sweet potato slices into the boiling water and return to a simmer over medium heat. After 5 minutes, remove the sweet potatoes and drain the water.
Combine the sea salt, garlic powder, cumin, paprika, chili powder, poultry seasoning, and cayenne in a small bowl. Lightly grease two baking trays with coconut oil. Arrange the sweet potato slices on the trays so that they are not overlapping. Brush the tops of the sweet potatoes lightly with more coconut oil. Sprinkle the spice mix generously over the top of the slices.
Bake the sweet potatoes for 25 minutes. Remove the trays from the oven and set the slices that are already crispy to one side. Return the trays back to the oven for 5 more minutes and then check to remove the crispy chips again. If needed, bake remaining slices 3 to 5 minutes more. Note that the chips might not appear crispy when first removed from the oven, though should crisp up as they cool.
Serve sweet potato chips alongside guacamole, or enjoy them plain! Their crunchiness is at its peak within a few hours of making.
Makes 1 to 2 servings
1 small tomato, finely diced
¼ red onion, finely diced
½ cup coriander/cilantro, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced

Mash the avocado together with the juice from the lemon and lime in a small bowl. Stir the tomato, onion, cilantro, garlic, jalapeño, and sea salt into the mashed avocado. Serve and enjoy with the sweet potato chips, alongside any cut-up vegetables of your choice, as a salad dressing, or even on top of cooked vegetables as desired.
* While any variety of sweet potato will work for this recipe, cook times will vary slightly. This recipe yields the best results with the traditional orange-flesh sweet potatoes that are sometimes labeled as yams at the grocery store.
