Combine: Lemon or lime juice (1 whole fresh lemon)
Grade B maple syrup (1-2 tablespoons)
Cayenne pepper (1/10 teaspoon)
Fill a 16 oz container with hot water.
You can use cold water if you prefer, but the hot water helps to loosen debris clinging to the intestinal walls.
Use fresh lemons or limes only, never canned lemon or lime juice nor frozen lemonade or frozen juice.
Any time you get hungry throughout the day just have another glass of lemonade. No other food should be taken during the cleansing period. The lemonade mixture is a complete balance of minerals and vitamins, one does not suffer hunger
IN ADDITION TO THE LEMONADE, DRINK A MINIMUM OF 6-8 GLASSES WATER.
FIRST MORNING: “Salt FLush”
BEFORE EATING OR DRINKING ANYTHING , USE THE “Salt flush”.
- 1 liter warm water
- ½-1 teaspoon sea salt
- Drink within a few minutes.
DO NOT EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING UNTIL THE SALT FLUSH BEGINS TO WORK.
This will be in approximately 20-30 minutes. You should have a “normal” bowel movement. Within the next hour, you will likely have several more bowel movements which will be very runny as the salt cleanses the colon.
(I always allow 3 hours from the time I drink the salt water until I leave the house – just to make sure!)
Begin drinking the lemonade drink. Drink it as often as you like throughout the day and evening, making sure that you drink at least 6-8 glasses of it. If you feel tired or hungry, drink another glass of lemonade – and DON’T FORGET TO DRINK WATER!!
The master cleanse was shared by Stanley Burroughs. More information can be found in his book, Healing for the Age of Enlightenment.
Purpose of Master Cleanse:
- Dissolves and eliminates old waste build-up, toxins and congestion
that have formed on intestinal walls
- Purifies the glands and cells throughout the entire body
- Assists in eliminating all unusable waste and hardened material in the joints and muscles
- Relieves pressure and irritation in the nerves, arteries, and blood
- Assists in building up and detoxifying the bloodstream
- Assists in preventing disease and toxic conditions from arising in the bowel environment
- May assist in losing excess pounds If overweight (but can even gain weight if one is underweight)
- Provides better mineral, nutrient, vitamin, and electrolyte absorption through the small and large intestine
One can safely use this cleanse for 21 consecutive days. However, most of us do not choose to be on it that long at one time – we miss the act of eating!!!
