In terms of weight loss during the Master-Cleanse - you can increase a little of the maple syrup to maintain your weight and drink the maximum 12 to ensure you get enough calories a day. I agree with the advice of seeking a second opinion. If you're not feeling any positive change with the doc you are with you need to see what else may be out there for you. There is also a parasite cleanse, although I've never done so I can't speak for it, but you can search it here at curezone. I hope you find the answers you are looking for.
