|The basic principle behind the Master Cleanse is a detoxification fast,
(minimum of 10 days) drinking ONLY a mixture of water, lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper in specific proportions. The premise is that drinking this special beverage aids in ridding the body of toxins from pesticides, hormones, and other chemicals in our everyday environment, as well as clearing out built-up material in the colon. Drinking senna tea (a laxative) and performing daily salt-water flushes is also recommended.
in addition to detoxification, people do lose weight on the Master Cleanse Diet. The only calories you take in on this plan are from the maple syrup in the lemonade drink. View the Recipe for The Master Cleanse and Salt water Cleanse here.
