Getting Started on the Master Cleanse

It's a new year and a great time for a clean start! If your resolution is to get healthy or lose weight, you may consider starting with a whole body detox! The Master Cleanse, also known as the Lemonade Diet was created by Stanley Burroughs in 1941. This method has been used by many for years and has been steadily gaining in popularity. We have included the recipe below and we would be happy to put together a kit for you if you call ahead. Happy Cleansing!

•To dissolve and eliminate toxins and congestion that has 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 stream. •To keep youth and elasticity regardless of our years.

When to Use It
•When sickness has developed - for all acute and chronic conditions •When the digestive system needs a rest and a cleansing. •When overweight has become a problem. •When better assimilation and building of body tissue is needed.

How Long and Often?
Follow the diet for a minimum of 10 days or more - up to 40 days and beyond may be safely followed for extremely serious cases. The diet has all the nutrition needed during this time. Three to four times a year will do wonders for keeping the body in a normal healthy condition. The diet may be undertaken more frequently for serious conditions.

How to Make Lemonade
•2 Tbsp lemon or lime juice (approx. 1/2 lemon) •2 Tbsp genuine maple syrup (not maple flavored sugar syrup) •1/10 Tsp cayenne pepper (red pepper) or to taste •Water, medium hot (spring or purified water) Combine the juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper in a 10 oz. glass and fill with medium hot water. (Cold water may be used if preferred.) Use fresh lemons or limes only, never canned lemon or lime juice nor frozen lemonade or frozen juice. Use organic lemons when possible.

Blend a part of the lemon skin and pulp with the lemonade in a blender for further cleansing and laxative effect. (Note: commercially procured lemons may have had their skins dyed with yellow coloring and may have been subjected to poisonous insect sprays - be sure to peel off the outer skin if you cannot get uncolored, organically grown lemons.) The properties in the lemon skin also act as a hemostatic to prevent excess bleeding and to prevent clotting internally should there be any such prevailing condition. (Don't worry - normal conditions will continue during the menstrual periods.) Adding the cayenne pepper is necessary as it breaks up mucus and increases warmth by building the blood for an additional lift. It also adds many of the B and C vitamins. Mint tea may be used occasionally during this diet as a pleasant change and to assist further in the cleansing. Its chlorophyll helps as a purifier, neutralizing many mouth and body odors that are released during the cleansing period. Read More
