Master Cleanse: Day 1


Yep, doing another fast. = ) This time I’m documenting online as I go.  So, I am doing Stanley Burrough’s Master Cleanser routine for the first time.  Reading about it during my recent juice fast got me curious.  Plus, I came across this awesome blog from a second-timer.  Can it really do all that it claims to do in just 10 days?

I took the herbal laxative tea last night, as directed, using a Zija teabag my folks sent to me just to try. I’m sure they had no idea I’d use it to kick start a 10-day (or more) cleanse. = )

Starting weight: 152.6 lb

So, I starting drinking the quart of salt water this morning at 9:21 am and finished by 10 am — I loved this by the way.  It’s great warm!

And the cleansing begins…

11:25 am – first movement

12:15 pm – second movement

I’m very glad I stuck close to home this morning.  The salt water is supposed to flush through the whole intestine in an hour.  It was a hour and a half for me, but it was definitely flushed out! Thereafter, I went once an hour for the next three hours.

12:25 pm –  first lemonade concoction.  It is tasty, too! I made one quart, which is three batches of the recipe.  The cayenne made me sneeze, so I’ll use a little less for the next round.

2:30 pm – 16.9 oz plain water

I had family in town today, so I met them at the mall in the afternoon.  I don’t really like going out when starting something new, especially a cleanse, but life must go on.  I didn’t mention the cleanse to them.  I just bought a couple of 17 oz bottles of water while there and made the second round of lemonade when I got home.  Already, I noticed that my desire for ice was less (I have quite the ice-eating habit).

7:02 pm – second round of lemonade

9:30 pm – herbal tea

A Prayer for Detox Support

“Dear God and the angels, please support me on my journey toward greater health. I am now ready to release unhealthful foods and beverages from my diet. I can understand your messages and wish to follow your guidance to detox from unhealthy, processed food. I pray that you adjust my cravings so that I only desire healthful and high-vibrating foods and beverages. May my health improve immediately and repair my energy. Thank you.”

(From “Angel Detox” by Doreen Virtue and Robert Reeves, ND)

~~ Master Cleanser wisdom ~~

* We can create healthy bodies by using the right foods and eliminating highly toxic and mucus-forming foods.

* …deficiencies also produce toxins because of the deterioration of the cells.

* Infections are not “caught,” they are created by Nature to assist in burning our surplus wastes.

* People build strong, healthy bodies from the correct foods or they build diseased bodies from incorrect foods.

* When blood sugar is below normal, a person will feel depressed.

*As we eat the correct foods without excesses, the body will produce ALL the needed vitamins.

* The need (for protein) is highly exaggerated as only 16% of our body is protein.

* The most wastes are eliminated by breathing; next in order are the skin, the colon, the kidneys, and … from the sinus.

* …first cleanse the body before the right diet can be properly used.
