The Master Cleanse - An Excellent Way to Maintain and Restore Health

Mark Virkler's picture

I have experienced exceptional healing with the Master Cleanse. You can read my testimony of one of these AMAZING healing experiences here.

I find the Master Cleanse quite easy and simple to do, and very effective. The reason it is easy is because the maple syrup you are consuming in your hourly drink has enough energy/calories in it to keep you from feeling the weakness you may experience if fasting and drinking water only, although the weakness from a water only fast dissipates to a great extent by day four.

I highly recommend either the Master Cleanse or fasting with water only as the best steps to take to get rid of 90% of whatever ails you. I like doing them back to back.

The Master/Lemonade Cleanse 

Starting in the morning, you will fill a glass with 8-10 ounces of good, pure water and add the following to your water. You will repeat this every hour (six to ten times a day) for 10 days minimum and up to 40 days.

  • ADD 1/10 of a teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper, organic if you can, at least 30,000 HU
  • ADD 2 Tablespoons of organic Grade B Maple Syrup
  • ADD 1/2 of a freshly squeezed lemon
  • This MUST be mixed up hourly, rather than mixed up in the morning for the entire day.

Each evening you will need a cup of laxative tea, which you can get at some grocery stores, most health food stores. Smooth Move Tea is a wonderful choice.

Beginning the second morning, and every morning thereafter, you will need 30 ounces of water with 2 (two) teaspoons of sea salt in it. NOT table salt, but sea salt. Pink Himalayan Salt Benefits that Make It Superior to Table Salt. Drink it down in 15 minutes or less if you can. This is imperative to help flush the toxins that the body is releasing during the cleanse.

Any detox symptoms you might get from cleansing, like rash, irritable, headache, etc, are generally relieved with the morning salt water. IF you cannot drink the salt water, do another cup of the laxative tea in the morning unless you already have diarrhea.

That’s it! Eat nothing, and take no supplements during your fast (but continue any medications you are supposed to be on).

After the cleanse is over, take a bottle of probiotics to restore the flora in your colon.

The Master Cleanse is fully described here, along with the most common questions and answers. You will gain a wonderful appreciation and understanding of the Master Cleanse from this website. 

Questions and Answers

  1. When have you done enough cleansing? As you complete cleanses and fasts, your tongue will return to a pink color. When that is complete, you know your system is clean. 
  2. Do I cleanse first or nourish first? You need to be well nourished before cleansing. If you are frail and weak, nourishment must come before cleansing. Listen to your body. It will tell you when to cleanse and when to nourish. 
  3. How do I know if I need another cleanse? If your body has responded well to the last cleanse, and yet not fully restored, then after a couple of weeks of excellent nutrition, you can do another cleanse.
  4. How long do I cleanse? The Master Cleanse is designed to go 10 - 40 days.
  5. Between the cleanses, is there anything else I should do besides get good nutrition? Oxy-Powder is outstanding for killing off anaerobic bacteria living in your colon, and taking Oxy-Powder between cleanses would only help, and you can even take Oxy-Powder right along with the Master Cleanse. See this blog. Re-populating your colon with healthy, beneficial bacteria is important, so take a high-quality probiotic supplement after your cleanse as well.
  6. What would be considered a "maintenance" schedule for the Master Cleanse, once my health was completely restored? A 10-day Master Cleanse every six months.

Pictures of the Tongue Returning to Pink by the End of a 15-Day Master Cleanse

The main idea with the Master Cleanse is ideally you should do it until your tongue turns back to pink, then you know you’re fully, deeply cleansed. Gratefully, I’ve now done enough fasts and cleanses so this one was the final push to finally be able to do that and come full circle with my tongue on the last days looking like it did on my first days – a healthy pink. Awesome!

You’ll see day 5 was the worst, that’s also when my lower back was very sore at night, just super detoxing in every way. I actually thought it was the maple syrup changing my tongue, it got so discolored. But no, it finally re-colored itself. I continued the Master Cleanse for 15 days, and after I took a picture on day 16, I ate. During the cleanse, I also received two massages (as they help detoxify the body), as well as using detox foot pads to detoxify through my feet (under detox/cleansing tab).

Any kind of fasting or cleansing provides benefit. Three days would provide a LOT of benefit for you.

Joy2's picture

Would there also be benefit in doing the cleanse 1-3 days? My job doesn't allow the time to mix up the drink every hour but still want to do the cleanse in some way.

Mark Virkler's picture

Yes, I still use and highly recommend the Master Cleanse. Nothing better that I know of.

I do not know. Sorry. I wouldn't.

I have a doctors appointment for routine bloodwork. Will the cleanse mess up the results?

Mark Virkler's picture

It will make your numbers better on your checkup.

Is it ok to continue taking the following when I'm on the cleanse? Multi vitamins, probiotics, vitamin D, and St. John's Wart. Or do I wait to take them after the cleanse? I'm planning on doing a 10-14 days cleanse.

Mark Virkler's picture

It is best to discontinue all vitamins and herbs while doing the master cleanse. Let your body cleanse.

I am very interested in doing the Master Cleanse in order to detox but through a blood test, I found out that I am highly reactive to Cayenne pepper. Can you think of a replacement I could use instead that may be just as effective? Thanks, Dar

Mark Virkler's picture

Sorry, I do not know a replacement for Cayenne Pepper. Cayenne Pepper does thin the blood, so in that sense it is reactive. So not sure what your test meant by reactive. If you are on any other blood thinner, then adding Cayenne Pepper would be TO MUCH. You need to check with a Naturopath in your area.

You make an excellent point. Another amazing thing to be in awe of is His miraculous presence within us!

you stated you should be nourished before going on a cleans.

what kind of nourishment are you talking about?

Mark Virkler's picture

We have quit the Keto Diet because we did not note a lot of benefit, and because it encourages a lot of meat which we prefer not to consume because of the Genesis diet. We have answered this question in depth in "Part 4" of this series.
