Juice of ½ lemon
1 cup of warm water

WEIGHT LOSS TEA
This tea is used by men or women to dissolve fatty tissue from their bodies. For this purpose, drink 2-3 glasses per day. It also improves the beauty of the skin, giving a youthful appearance.
1/2 – 3/4 cup fresh or dried mint leaves
1 lb. cumin seeds
1 oz. fresh or frozen tamarind
1/2 tsp black salt (also called sulfur salt. Use only a little. It has a strong smell.)
8 lemons, quartered
1 Tbsp. black pepper
5 Qts. Water
Put ingredients in a pot. Bring to a boil. Lower the flame and cook at a low boil for 4-5 hours. This much time is required to draw the extract from the cumin seeds. Then strain and serve hot or cold. You can re-use the ingredients to make more tea. Just add a little more (more water, or more of the ingredients) each time you boil. Be sure to remove the lemon peels between boiling. Tea can be stored up to a week in the refrigerator.
For the skin, drink 2 glasses per day. It cleanses the mucous membrane of the colon and is an excellent source of Vitamin C.
