I have really been feeling the effects of the detoxification and it hasn’t been pleasant. In addition to feeling like I want to eat, I have the misery of my body clearing out junk that I’m finally allowing time to clear. Today I’m going to talk about some of the detox effects and symptoms.
According to most people, getting through day 3 is the biggest hurdle for doing the Master Cleanse. I’m at day 3 and doing pretty good. For me, day 2 yesterday was worse than day 3. I’m going to cover some ideas to help you get through the mental issue of not eating for so long.
Well, here I go! I started today on a Master Cleanse which I plan on doing for at least 10 days and may do 14 days this time. Ah, that familiar process of squeezing the lemons and that familiar taste of spicy lemonade sweetened with maple syrup. Hopefully some of my ideas and insights can help you with mental preparation and fortitude to make it through if you are thinking of doing a cleanse yourself. Stay tuned for more. If you haven’t read it and you are interested, grab a pdf copy of Stanley Burroughs’ original book. Keep in mind that it was written in the 70’s and is quite technical and dry. Still an interesting read.
I have been thinking about doing another Master Cleanse or lemonade diet for most of the summer. My health has increasingly gotten worse and my head more filled will mucus. I have been getting more frequent headaches lately, and today I have a blistering one again. It has been several years since I did my last Master Cleanse and while it isn’t a fun process, I was really really pleased with the results.
