Default Master Cleanse

Has anyone here ever heard of the Master Cleanse? Basically, it's a 10 day detox. You eat nothing but drink lemonade (made with lemons, cayanne pepper and organic maple syrup) for 10 days.

I did it in March and it wassn't easy especially since I have a sweet tooth but man I felt so good after the 10 days. I had so much energy and an overall feeling of well being. And I lost weight too! I think it's time to do another one.

Heard of it, never will try it, lol.

But there is one i heard this one fitness guy talking about. Its a change of lifestyle type of detox/diet. basically ya drink glass of hot water with a whole fresh lemon squeezed in it when ya get up in the morning and before you to bed. Acid in it is supposed to help with the bowel part. Then ya just eat small meals like 4 times a day, healthy meals/snacks.

campdavefit.com i think is his website. he has a master cleanse as well on there. All this i heard on the radio, i havent looked at the website cause i have a slow connection.

There are many different ways to detox but I read that the master cleanse is the fastest and most effective. It's not as hard as it sounds. The hardest days are 1-5, then you go on auto pilot.

If your work doesnt require alot of physical strain then i can see it working to an extent.

It sounds like fasting to me tho, plain and simple fasting.

someone I know was telling me that some chick fainted at work doing one of these crazy diets. I guess you can call it a diet. Remember to take vitamins along with it because your essentially starving your body from the essentials.

It's not really a diet, it's a cleanse. =) It's safe if you do it right.

Default Re: Master Cleanse

Here joo go.

******
What is it used for?

- To break down and remove toxins in the body.
- To clean both your digestive system and your kidneys.
- To clean the glands and cells in your body.
- To remove all waste and unnecessary material in your muscles and joints.
- To reduce and relieve pressure on your artieries, nerves, and blood vessels.
- To enhance the health of your blood stream.
- To maintain your body’s natural youth and strength
When should I use the Master Cleanse?

- If you are sick due to an acute or chronic problems.
- When your digestive system needs a good cleaning and rest.
- If your weight has become a problem.
How long should I use it?

Three to four times a year at 10-40 days at a time will do wonders for your body. The Master Cleanse diet will contain all the nutrition your body needs. If you have any serious ailments, you may use it more frequently, or for longer intervals. As with anything, if you are unsure, please consult your physician.
Directions for Making Lemonade (Master Cleanse)

- Squeeze ½ a fresh lemon or lime. (or 2 tablespoons)
- 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (make sure it’s genuine and not just flavored)
- 1/10th of a tablespoon of cayenne pepper (you may adjust this to suit your taste)
- Add cold or hot water in a 10 oz. Glass (I suggest using spring water, or water that has gone through a purifier)
You may drink mint tea occasionally to further assist in your cleansing. The mint tea will help neutralize body and mouth odors that will be released during your cleanse.
What if I am a diabetic?

- day 1: use a tablespoon of molasses in your glass of lemonade while reducing the insulin by 10 units.
- As you progress, each day you should reduce the insulin while increasing the molasses gradually to 2 tablespoons (per glass).
- When you’ve reached this proportion, the insulin can be removed completely, and you can replace the molasses with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup.
- You should regularly check the sugar level in your urine just to be safe.
How much should I drink?

You should take between 6 and 12 glasses a day. If you feel hungry, simply have another glass. Because this diet contains all the vitamins and minerals your body needs, you should not ingest any other food or vitamins during this period. If you are overweight or underweight, you may adjust the amount of maple syrup accordingly. Also, you may drink extra water if you wish.

You should be visiting the bathroom and having a bowel movement 2-3 or more times a day. This is the diet working to eliminate all the waste and unnecessary build up in your body. It is recommended to take an herbal laxative tea to help this process along. You can drink this tea both in the morning and at night, throughout the entire cleansing process. Remember, it’s best to take this laxative in liquid form, as this is a liquid diet.
I am finished, now what?

If your diet is mostly composed of raw fruit, nuts, and vegetables:

- Drink several glasses of fresh orange juice. This will help your body prepare to start ingesting regular food again.
- Day 3: Orange Juice for breakfast, raw fruit for lunch, fruit or a vegetable salad for dinner. You should now be ready to assume your normal diet.

If your diet is composed of meat, milk, and various processes and refined foods:

- Drink several glasses of fresh orange juice. This will help your body prepare to start ingesting regular food again.
- Day 2: Drink several glasses of fresh orange juice. Also, make yourself a vegetable soup for lunch. (You should make a nice vegetable soup composed of several vegetables. Limit your use of salt, and NO meat. This must be a fresh natural vegetable soup, so do not buy it from a can.)
- Day 3: Drink more orange juice. You can help yourself to a second helping of the vegetable soup you made earlier. For dinner, you can eat vegetables, salad, and/or fruit.
- Day 4: You may resume your normal diet. However it is suggested that you begin to alter your diet to include more fruits, vegetables and nuts, and less meat, milk, and processed foods.

Fasting on purpose isnt recommonded unless you're Jesus or Ghandi.

If you want to clean out your system, why not just replace the crap food in your diet with raw vegetables and fruits?

How is lemon, cayenne pepper and maple syrup supposed to supply you with all the nutrients your body needs?

You're going to be missing a lot of various vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Have you tried urine therapy?

A lot of people swear by it.

Quote:
Human urine has strengthening and curative characteristics concerning many deficiencies. A mixture of potato and sulphur powder, mixed with heated, old urine helps against hair loss. One should rub this mixture into the scalp; this slows down loss of hair. All kinds of throat inflammation can be helped by gargling with urine to which a bit of saffron has been added. Trembling hands and knees can be helped by washing, and rubbing one's own warm urine into the skin directly after one has urinated. An universal and excellent remedy for all distempers inward and outward. Drink your own water in the morning nine days together and it cures the scurvy, makes the body lightsome and cheerful. It is good against the dropsy and Jaundice, drunk as before. Wash your ears with it warm and it is good against deafness noises and nost other ailments in the ears. Wash your eyes with your own water and it cures sore eyes and clears and strengthens the sight. Wash and rub your hands with it, and it takes away numbness, chaps and sores and makes the joints limber. Wash any green wound with it and it is an extraordinary good thing. Wash any part that itches and it takes the itch away. Wash the fundament and it is good against piles and other sores. More than any other method, urine therapy represents the principles of natural medicine. One's own urine is a specific medicine for anyone who is ill. It is made for him or her personally and is just right for what he or she needs at the present moment, because it changes its composition all the time. It is not only something that cures, but it also sustains health when taken as a preventative. Taken energetically, one could consider urine to be an exact hologram of both healthy as well as diseased body fluids.

Exactly. I don't see anything with protein or calcium represented in the cleanse ingredients (especially not in any significant amounts).

Don't be. He seems to be all about natural foods and cleansing and the like. I've actually learned some pretty useful stuff from his threads and then researching the stuff myself. One of his threads is actually about the whole drinking urine thing (I haven't tried it myself though).
