Dan and I did the Master Cleanse and we feel great! It’s actually been over a month ago that we did it and I’m just now making the time to tell you about it (spring gardening took priority).
There’s lots of info available about the Master Cleanse. We have the book “The Master Cleanse
” and apparently there’s a new version called “The Complete Master Cleanse
” and a Peter Glickman book called “Lose Weight, Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 days
“. There are plenty of people blogging about their master cleanse experience, and there’s even a Master Cleanse Facebook group
for peer support.
If you’re interested in doing a general cleanse for your body, losing weight somewhat quickly, stopping addictions (like foods, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs), or just trying it out, here are our notes on how it worked for us and our tips to make it go easily. I’m not going to list the full instructions on how to make the special “lemonade” for the master cleanse – please get one of the books to get the full details on how to do the cleanse.
I should mention that this is really a stage 3 of my body cleansing experiments. As Stage 1 I’ve been consuming Chocolate Bliss and other raw superfoods regularly for the last year and a half. Because of that stage 1 transition I’ve been able to stop caffeine entirely, stop eating meat, dramatically reduce my intake of processed foods (I still have good quality potato chips now and then), eat more vegetables, and let go of quite a bit of excess fat on my body. In Stage 2 I got interested in cleansing my body even further, so I did a series of Liver & Gallbladder Cleanses. I’m glad that I did the liver cleanse 2nd because I had started doing an MMS Cleanse that was too extreme for my liver.
The Master Cleanse was stage 3 for me simply because that’s when it came into my awareness and my body intelligence said “yes, let’s do this now”. I think the Master Cleanse is easy enough to do as a stage 1 on a cleansing journey, though you may find you have more detox reactions than I did simply because I’ve been cleaning up my diet for the last year and a half. Nevertheless, since the cleanse is letting your body do its own cleaning (rather than forcing cleansing with supplements), it seems a safe way to start cleaning house.
Here are our tips on how to make it even more easy:
