The MC should not be undertaken prior to reading the book The Master Cleanser by Stanley Burroughs AND all of the FAQ's. In some people fasting may promote formation and/or growth of intrahepatic stones and/or gallstones. Flush your liver before and after every fast to prevent possible problems!

    Hi everyone, I read most of the forum and read the entire Master Cleanser book from Stanley Burroughs before I decided this was the best thing to try.

          Iíve learned itís best to do the salt water flush (SWF) in the morning before doing the lemonade so you donít flush all the nutrients and vitamins away. In the evening before going to bed is when you drink your laxative tea so by morning, all the stuff is loosened up. I did the SWF last year and this time around, Iím choosing to do just the lax tea in the mornings and evenings. Itís an option according to the MC. ... ... Just make sure youíre drinking lots of water, your glasses of lemonade , your tea and your SWF in the mornings only.   [End]

        I think you are right on, hopinso. Everyoneís different, including the amount of toxins and waste their bodies have accumulated and the time it takes to be eliminated. I am on day 10, done the MC to the letter and at this point there is NOTHING SOLID to eliminate--the tea every nite (which cramps me hard) and the swf every morning has just strained me to the max. Iím going to switch to the tea every other nite also and the swf every couple of days. I think this will allow me to stick to the fast for 21 days, which is my goal.   [End]

        If you do the tea in the a.m. as well, do you wait until you ĒflushĒ that out to have your first lemonaide? Does it take a lot longer with the tea than the SWF? I just drank room temp water for the flush. I guess I could try heating it up a bit and maybe that would taste more like broth. Either way, hard to imagine actually ĒlikingĒ it.

        Thanks, I will be sure to check that out. As far as the parasite cleanse (for Ronda Leigh) I chose the clarkia formula which I ordered from www.drclarkia.com I havenít received it yet (hopefully today) but there is a lot of information on that site as well in regards to the different ingredients etc. I researched different formulas but essentially there are only three necessary ingredients and clarkia contains them all.

      There are two things you can do. One is to mix 2 or 3 teaspoons of Epsom salts in your lemonade and drink. ES works by drawing water into the colon and usually mild to moderate diarrhea occurs. If you do this be sure and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Another solution is to do an enema. Use at least 2 quarts of water in an old fashioned hot water bottle/enema bag. You can get one at Walmart for about $5.00. Either one will help flush toxins. Yet remember that you probably donít have any solids in your bowel if you are doing a straight Master Cleanse.
