The Master Cleanse/The Lemonade Diet

The Master Cleanse is a 10 day cleanse which consist of a salt water flush every Morning, Smooth Move Tea the night before you begin the fast and every night during the fast and during the day a lemonade drink made with Fresh Organic Lemon Juice, Organic Cayenne Pepper, Organic Grade B Maple Syrup, and 8 oz if purified or filtered water.  No supplements are taken, don't use any other sweeteners and don't add any other liquids (like Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar).

Do it for yourself!  You will embrace it!  Try 10 days and for a full cleanse do 40 or any amount of days over 10!  Before you start make a list of things to do that will replace your eating time. You will definitely clean some closets on this cleanse.  

Here is a photo of the ingredients used during the cleanse.  Starting on the left:  Maple Syrup Grade B Organic, Redmond Real Salt All Natural Sea Salt, Citrus Juicer (small and compact), Organic Lemon (you'll need 10 or more for the first 5 days),  1 box Traditional Medicinals Organic Smooth Move Herbal Laxative Tea and Cayenne pepper that I always purchase in bulk. Purchase ingredients as you go, but you don't want to run out during the cleanse so plan ahead.

The Master Cleanse will cleanse every organ of your body, remove excess mucus and provide all the vitamins and nutrients you need for 10-40 days, however long you choose.  You want to do 10 days at least.  Lemons & Limes are indeed the richest source of minerals and vitamins.  The Master Cleanse is a reducing diet that will dissolve and eliminate all types of fatty tissue.  Fat will melt away at the rate of 2 pounds a day for most people, no negative side effects.  Mucus causes diseases like colds, flu, asthma, hay fever, sinus and bronchial irritations.  All these diseases will be cured and removed from the body.  Skin disorders are also healed as the body is being cleansed.  You have to do the Master Cleanse! :)

Lemons are an acidic fruit, but it becomes alkaline as it is digested and assimilated.  Lemon is the best aid towards alkaline balance.  The is no danger of "too much acid."  Always add lemon to your water, it alkalinizes the water.  Alkaline environment means no sickness and disease!

Purpose of the cleanse:
To dissolve and eliminate toxins and congestion that have formed in any part of the body.
To cleanse the kidneys and the digestive system
To purify the glands and cells throughout the entire body
To eliminate all unusable waste and hardened material in the joints and muscles
To relieve pressure and irritation in the nerves,  arteries, and blood vessels
To build a healthy blood system
To keep youth and elasticity regardless of our years

The lemon is a loosening and cleansing agent with many important building factors.  The ability of the elements in the lemon and the maple syrup working together creates these desired results:

Its 49% potassium strengthens and  energizes the heart, stimulates and builds the kidneys and adrenal glands.
Its oxygen builds vitality
Its carbon acts as a motor stimulant.
Its hydrogen activates the sensory nervous system.
Its calcium strengthens and builds the lungs.
Its phosphorus knits the bones, stimulates and builds the brain for clearer thinking.
Its sodium encourages tissue building.
Its magnesium acts as a blood alkalizer.
Its iron builds the red corpuscles to rapidly correct the most common forms of anemia.
Its chlorine cleanses the blood plasma.
Its silicon aids the thyroid for deeper breathing

The natural iron, copper, calcium, carbon, and hydrogen found in the sweetening supplies more building and cleansing material.  It truly is a perfect combination for cleansing, eliminating, healing, and building.  Hence, supplements are not needed during the diet and may actually interfere with its cleansing action.
Great time to do the cleanse:
When sickness has developed - for all acute and chronic conditions
When the digestive system needs a rest and a cleaning
When weight has become a problem
When better assimilation and building of body tissue is needed
When you can admit you are addicted to the wrong foods and you want a change!

How often:
3 to 4 times a year would be awesome
10 to 40 days 

Your recipe to a Vibrant New You!!

2 T lemon or lime juice, fresh & organic, (use pulp for laxative effect)
2 T Maple Syrup Grade B, organic (add a little less for weight loss, large amounts of vitamins & minerals)
1/10 tsp cayenne pepper or to taste (breaks up mucus, adds B & C Vitamins)
1 cup (8 oz.) water, distilled, purified or spring water

Make this drink throughout the day to prevent hunger, you may also drink water or Traditional Medicinals Peppermint Tea (adds chlorophyll, helps as a purifier, neutralizes mouth and body odor released during cleanse).  Drink 6-12 glasses a day of the lemonade drink, I usually have two glasses at each serving, it's just so good!

Drink quickly:
1 quart water  (4 cups)
2 tsp non-iodized sea salt, Redmond Real Salt Gourmet Sea Salt (has a blue top)

Do this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.  This method cleans the entire digestive tract where as enemas and colonics only reach a small part of the colon. Several eliminations will occur.  The salt water has the same specific gravity as the blood, hence the kidneys cannot pick up the water and the blood cannot pick up the salt.  This may be taken as often as needed to entirely wash the digestive system.  Wait about 20 minutes to 1 hour, you will need to be by the bathroom for about 1 hour once the eliminations begin.  This is the salt water flush that will flush what was loosened while you slept.  If you cannot do the salt water which is best and the fastest way to cleanse, then have the herbal tea in the morning first thing, the tea however, takes about 8 hours before it begins to work.  

Evening Routine: (Do this the night before you start the cleanse)
Have 1 cup of tea, just one bag or PAIN, PAIN, PAIN
Traditional Medicinals Smooth Move Tea (Purchase from Whole Foods Market)
Drink this each night before bed, this will loosen your packed colon.

You will notice a white coating on your tongue, normal, you are being cleansed, when your tongue returns to it's normal color that is when the cleanse is complete, my tongue was still white after 10 days!  I will do a longer cleanse soon.  It is hard to change your mindset and get over the fact that you don't need the food.  I do have strong cravings for fruit though.  But when you have cravings drink the lemonade drink and start another project.

Enjoy The Master Cleanse!!!! To your Health!

To Recap:
1. The night before you start have the laxative tea, 1 cup.
2. On an empty stomach the next morning drink the salt water flush quickly, in an hour elimination will begin for about an hour then you are good for the rest of the day.
3. Drink the lemonade drink all day 6-12 glasses, have water and peppermint tea if you would like throughout the day as well.
4. Before bed have the laxative tea.
5. Next day, start all over!

 Feel free to exercise and carry on with regular business, just skip the eating part!
