I thought I saw it here but I am not sure. Has anyone heard of that crazy cleanse, I think it is water lemon juice hot sauce maple syrup and other cooky stuff?

It is called the Master Cleanse. Google it. From what I read a colon cleanse is suggested before starting. It is a 28 day diet of water, lemon juice, maple strup and cayenne pepper. I feel like this :upset: when I think about doing it. However, many people swear by it...or swear at it.

I've done it. Book is Healing for the age of enlightenment. 10 days is the rec. but you ease into it and ease out of it. I did the liver flush too.

How did the liver flush work out? I was going to do it but read you needed to do it 6-7 times for it to be really effective.

Yeow! 6 or 7 times? Are you talking about the olive oil thing? I have to go outside and breathe and try to not puke. Or do you mean the cleanse itself? That would take about a year. I have a friend who has been done it a few times but not sure on the interval or duration specifics, but she did say that the last time was at a much deeper level. How one knows that, I don't know.

I have done the master cleanse twice. Consists of drinking up to 10 glasses/day of water, 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, and 2 tbsp of grade b maple syrup. You also do a salt water flush every morning to rid yourself of toxins. I felt really good each time I did it--lost 10 lbs each time, had lots of energy, etc. Stanley Burroughs is the creater. He has a book out there. Also, Peter Glickman has a book describing the cleanse. You can also google it and get the directions for how to do it.

You can download Burroughs book online, free I think.

check the above out. One thing I must warn about is that the maple syrup is seriously sweet and you get kinda hyper (sugar high) from it.
I did the cleanse twice and would really recommend this for people who are heavy drinkers.

I now do juice cleanses and seem to do better on those as I do not like being wound up on sugar which is what maple syrup is. if you take it out of the lemon cleanse, you will have a really hard time (fasting symptoms) for about 4 days.
Fasting symptoms are a lot like alcohol withdrawal, the more toxic you are, the worse you will feel.

If this is your first time, only do it for 10 days. it is not easy, especially the first 4 days. I also think that if you lead a really busy life (children, job, etc.) this is not going to be fun. the first few days you will be irritable and spacey at the same time, this is when a lot of people quit. after that you feel euphoric. I was really hyper (in a good way) and even went to the gym and thought food like candy,bread and cereal were gross. wine, oh my god! wine smelled like hell to me when I was near it. I stayed AF for a while with no cravings for any booze.

I found this total clense on line a few years ago, did it for 3 months the first time and 1 month every 6-12 months, its awesome and makes me feel great. can't say it 'flattens your tummy' like the ads say but sure makes you feel clean inside. I just started it again this past Monday and i am incorporating the toxinout program as well. Hopefully this will keep me on the straight and narrow and not drink during this clense as its says no alcohol, which i never headed to before. Haven't heard of these others you are talking about

I think I could manage the lime-in-the coconut cleanse.

But seriously guys, how do you manage to do this with a job (ok, or LOOKING for a job) and a family and all those other obligations in life ...? It sounds horrendous and impossible.

Yes, the olive oil and grapefruit juice Epsom salt thing 6-7 times to fully flush. When I read that I decided not to do it. If you read the whole Hulda Clark regimen it explains why.

Here is another view of the Master Cleanse:

Hey beatle , trust me the lemonade cleanse is easier than getting plastered every night and waking up with an evil hangover and trying to keep yourself from puking all morning and afternoon.

Hi all~

I did the Master cleanse back in October, or I should say I "attempted" to do the master cleanse back in October! I think all of us are different, but my body requires a lot of protein or I get really low blood sugar and start getting an acidic tummy and nauseous. Lemons are very acidic and add some cayenne pepper and maple syrup.... a recipe for vomiting for me!

I did not make it 24 hours (and I had no alcohol for several days before starting, so it wasnt that). I had felt wonderful for 3 days prior, bought all the stuff and the day I started I wound up vomiting around 4 p.m. in a store... how embarrasing! I wish I was one of those who could do these liquid cleanses, but my stomach is just way to sensitive! How I ever learned to tolerate alcohol, I will never fathom.

Hey Florida Boy,
Just curious - why sorbitol sweetening, why not stevia?
Maybe I'll do this!!

Hi Lila,

I don't know the reason. I just posted it in case anyone had a problem with sugar.
