The Master Cleanse or Lemonade Diet is a Detox Diet that uses a Juice Fast to Cleanse the Whole Body while resting the Digestive System. Posts in this category are specific to The Master Cleanse, or the various phases of The Master Cleanse like The Ease-In, The Lemonade Diet, The Ease-Out, The Detox Tea and the Salt Water Flush.

Lemonade Diet – Day 1 – First Day on Lemonade

Well, we are past the Ease-in (if you did one at all), and we are onto the main event – The Lemonade Diet. Whether you are a Master Cleanser in the true sense, doing your fifth or even tenth Master Cleanse, or you are a rookie going at it for the first time, the first […]

Ease-In Day 3 – Orange Juice

Coming down off solid foods, we move into the orange juice portion of the Ease-In/Ease-Out process. The Ease-In is not as important as the Ease-Out. During the Ease-Out, the first day after the lemonade, your stomach is used to the citrus juice every day. The orange juice, still stripped of most of the pulp, is […]

Ease-In Day 2 – Juicing, Soups and Broths

Day 2 of the optional Ease-In starts by removing solid foods from our diet. Again, the Ease-In is just a reversal of the Ease-Out (which follows the Lemonade in the whole process of The Master Cleanse). Juicing fruits and vegetables is such a great way to get the value of food directly and easily. Since […]

Cayenne Pepper, Water, Lemon, and Maple Syrup – Which Ingredient of the Master Cleanse Recipe is the Most Important?

Cayenne pepper, water, lemon, and maple syrup are the entire ingredients for the Master Cleanse recipe, and it would be impossible to get the full effects of the cleanse by leaving one out, but which is the most important? The cayenne pepper loosens and the water is the greatest solvent. The lemon’s citrus is wonderful and […]

Ease-Out: Stopping The Master Cleanse

Stopping The Master Cleanse can be (by far), the most dangerous part of cleansing, when done wrong. How dangerous? That depends on how far into the lemonade diet you are. If you’re just doing a 3 day lemon cleanse, you won’t have to be as careful as as you will have to be if your lemonade […]

The Lemonade Diet Ingredients and Recipe

The Lemonade Diet is the portion of The Master Cleanse during which you consume only the Lemonade. It is a diet in the sense that you are restricted to a certain food. The phrase “The Lemonade Diet” is often used synonymously with The Master Cleanse, but I break it down in order to describe the portion […]

Ease-In: Starting The Master Cleanse

Unlike the Ease-out, the Ease-in (Or Ease-On) is optional. However, after years of cleansing and supporting cleansers we’ve found that each of these three phases is equally as important to your successfully completing this sometimes challenging cleanse. Some people choose not to ease into this somewhat extreme detox. I personally believe that it is a kind choice to allow our bodies […]

The Salt Water Flush (SWF)

The Salt Water Flush, is a long used “hack”, or trick to create an on-demand bowel movement of sorts. By drinking a sea salt solution, we can use the bodies own defense mechanism to temporarily suspend “digestion”, and engage the “elimination” mechanism to remove the salt water as fast as possible from the body. Why […]

Master Cleanse Ingredients

The Master Cleanse is powerful in its simplicity in both process and ingredients. Although very few ingredients are required, the quality of the ingredients is critical. Each and every one of the Master Cleanse Ingredients should be organic grade, ripe, locally sourced, and unrefined without any preservatives. This can make for a challenge to keep […]

Extended Ease-Out

5 Years ago I coined the phrase “Ease-Out” to describe what was up-to-then described as “Breaking the Cleanse”. Coupled with a concept I suggested to book-end the Lemonade Diet, the “Ease-In” (the opposite of the Ease-Out at the front of the cleanse), these two periods of 6 days total can be as effective part of […]
