I’m a huge believer in the Master Cleanser by Stanley Burroughs. I’ve been using it for the last 20 years and it never let’s me down. If you search for it on Google you may get some bad press about it. I’ve known many people who have tried it and gotten very ill for the first few days and given up. My thinking is that they’re detoxifying and they can’t take the ill feeling they’re experiencing. It’s ridiculous how many people are addicted to sugar and caffeine and they don’t even know it. Also, others may say it’s too extreme. If that’s true sometimes you have to go all the way to get results. Oh well…
I use the Master Cleanser mainly for two reasons. First, when I feel ill it’s my first line of defense. I don’t take aspirin, decongestants, pain relievers or OTC drug. The lemons help break up mucus when I’m stuffy. I remember about 20 years ago I had bronchitis for a few weeks. I fasted between Christmas and New Year’s eve and it knocked my sickness out. The maple syrup also gives you the energy you need to get through the day.
The second reason I use it is for weight maintenance. Most mornings (90% of the time) I drink the lemonade instead of eating. I started that practice in 2016 to help stay within a certain weight range since I pick up weight in the winter. I’ve never looked at the fast as a “weight loss tool” and I think it’s a mistake to do so. You’ll lose water weight and glycogen if you do it, but you’ll gain the weight back once you go off it, so it’s not a true indicator of fat loss. Fat loss should be a longer process due to a diet high in veggies, fruit and lots of fiber. However, drinking the lemonade everyday stops me from eating unnecessarily as I’m prone to overeating.
Lastly, I think the fast has done wonders for my skin. It’s looking clearer then usual since I’ve started drinking the lemonade on a daily basis. Lots of times I eat food (especially if it has processed sugar in it) and I have blemishes on my forehead. Of course, that’s something I definitely don’t want. Whenever your skin flares up there’s always a serious internal battle your body is fighting against some type of inflammation. I believe the Master Cleanser will help you win that battle.
Good luck with it!
