The Master Cleanse - who knew?

I met a young man yesterday who is doing something called The Master Cleanse. Having never heard of it, I asked that he explain it to me. When I lived in Germany we did a cleanse twice a year that involved drinking saltwater on an empty stomach a couple of times a day - and drinking pepperment tea or water for a week. Nothing else - It worked - You felt great after the first few days.

This Master Cleanse sounds healthier since you are drinking pure lemon juice (2 Tablespoons) together with 2 tablespoons of grade B organic maple syrum and  1/10 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper in a glass of distilled or spring water. Tap water is not allowed since it has fluoride in it.

You drink 10-12 servings of this per day and can drink additional water but nothing else - for anywhere from 10 days to 45 days!!! This guy is just completing week 2 and has done the 45 days before. He says he feels great!!!!! He starts his day with a glass of room temperature saltwater on an empty stomach to help with elimination. He ends his day with a glass of senna tea. In between he has his lemon-water mixture described above.

Have any of you tried this one??? I think I am going to give it a shot! It is supposed to Detox your body and after those lab results, perhaps this will be a good thing to try!!!!

It sounded good enough to share with everyone else out there!!! Amazing what you learn from clients!

Barbara-Jo & Bill,

I am always leary of these detox diets....don't think I could handle going without food. I'm wondering how this is healthy and how you will have energy...please be careful. :)

I've heard this isn't healthy. I would think just eating fresh fruits and vegetables and water would help, wouldn't it?

I've never heard of this sort of cleanse, but tend to agree towards fruits and water for a week.. but fasts aren't bad if doctor approved.

A friend of mine landed in the hospital recently, after doing this detox. She was on day 8.

You are not getting enough nutrients or vitamins and you are hurting more organs than you are helping.  If you need a detox, you should consult with your doctor, who will help you with what to do, depending on what other medical issues you may have.   What may have worked successfully for some, may not for others. 

My sister also did this detox and also drank the senna tea (which is a laxative); but in the end, she developed other problems she is now on medication for.  You have to be TOTALLY healthy and still check with your doctor, before you attempt this or any other detox that takes more than 2 days.

Whichever one you choose, good luck and good riddance (talking about the toxins, of course). :)

Our broker and his wife have been on this diet and he claims that he feels great, he has lost 45 pounds I believe.  He says the toxins come out of his tougue and he can "taste" alot of his favorite foods.

Yvette- Hope you start to feel better soon! My friend on this is ending it, but has been on it for several weeks already. I do understand checking with a doctor first - today people check with a doctor before doing most things -
