The Master Cleanse

In the 70 years since Stanley Burroughs developed the Master Cleanse, thousands of people have used his simple technique to detoxify and lose weight.

Essentially, the Master Cleanse is a form of juice and tea fast with a daily “salt-water flush.” Instead of food, you consume a mixture of fresh-squeezed organic lemon juice, organic cayenne pepper, and pure, organic maple syrup. With a Maple Valley Master Cleanse Kit, you provide the fresh lemons and purified/filtered water and we provide all the rest: organic maple syrup, organic cayenne pepper, sea salt and tea, along with the Master Cleanse guidebook of your choice.

Detoxifying on the Master Cleanse

Stanley Burroughs first devised the Master Cleanse as a treatment for ulcers. Burroughs blamed most illnesses on the build-up of mucous and other wastes, including toxins from both the environment and an imbalanced diet. Burroughs designed the Master Cleanse to eliminate these toxins by dislodging them from the body through “lemonade cleanse”, juice fasting with a lemonade made from fresh squeezed lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper and an herbal elimination tea. The cleanse also includes facilitating the elimination of toxins in the body through salt-water flushing, or “the top-down enema.”

Losing Weight on the Master Cleanse

Thousands of people choose the Master Cleanse with organic maple syrup as an accessible and effective weight-loss program. These include celebrities like the musician and actor Jared Leto, radio personality Robin Quivers of the Howard Stern Show, recording artist Nicole Scherzinger and singer Beyonce, who discussed her Master Cleanse on the Oprah Winfrey Show. But many more master cleansers are regular folks who turn to the cleanse in their quest to maintain a healthy weight.

As with any weight-loss program, be sure to consult with your physician before embarking on the Master Cleanse. In addition, reading a Master Cleanse guidebook before cleansing is strongly recommended.

The Master Cleanse works by replacing the calories from food with calories from an organic lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup mixture that is rich in vitamins and other nutrients. If you drink 6 to 12 10oz glasses of the Master Cleanse lemonade recipe,you’ll be consuming somewhere between 650 to 1,300 calories a day – enough to provide energy and keep hunger at bay. And because you’re drinking organic lemonade made with pure organic maple syrup, you’ll be consuming a cocktail rich in vitamins, minerals, and disease-fighting antioxidants.

Most people are able to shed weight steadily if they follow the Master Cleanse strictly. And of course, it’s what you do after the cleanse that will determine whether the weight you lose stays off. Tom Woloshyn’s guidebook, The Complete Master Cleanse, includes suggestions for healthy eating after the Master Cleanse.
