I think of the Master-Cleanse as a sort of "rehab" around my health, allowing me to stop what I am doing for a while and turn some things around. The way I manage my health is not up to anyone but me. Sure there are temptations everywhere, but by focusing on my colon for a while has proved to be a great diversion. Depriving myself of things that I like to indulge in has helped me to see that I can resist these things if I choose to. The doctors and health experts out there would like to tell you that the Master-Cleanse is not healthy, saying that there is not scientific proof of any benefits and that it causes stress on the body. Well, I guess they have not measured the yuck that gets flushed down the toilet. Also, I have yet to see a report of anyone getting sick from this cleanse. Where's that proof? My body seems glad to have had the break from all the wrong foods I've been eating. I would definitely do this again.
