Origins of Fasting
  • Used for thousands of years, fasting is one of
    the oldest therapies in medicine
  • Many of the great doctors of ancient times and
    many of the oldest healing systems have
    recommended fasting as an integral method of
    healing and prevention
  • Fasting has also been used in nearly every
    religion in the world, including Christianity,
    Judaism, Buddhism, and Islam. Many of history's
    great spiritual leaders fasted for mental and
    spiritual clarity, including Jesus, Buddha, and
    Mohammed. In one of the famous political acts of
    the last century, the Indian leader Mahatma
    Gandhi fasted for 21 days to promote peace

The Master Cleanser
  • The Master Cleanser was created by Stanley
    Burroughs
  • over 40 years ago. He was inspired to write the
  • lemonade diet as a means to give relief and to
    heal
  • stomach ulcers in 10 days.
  • What does the lemonade diet consist of? Why?
  • Lemons are one of the richest sources of minerals
    and vitamins
  • Maple Syrup is a balanced form of positive and
    negative sugars
  • and must be used, no substitutes. Grade B maple
    syrup is highly
  • recommended for its taste and mineral content.
  • Cayenne Pepper breaks up mucus and increases
    warmth by
  • building the blood for an additional lift it
    also adds many of the B and C vitamins.

8
The Master Cleanser
  • Purpose
  • To dissolve eliminate toxins, congestion that
    have formed in
  • any part of the body
  • To cleanse the kidneys the digestive system
  • To purify the glands cells throughout entire
    body
  • To eliminate all unusable waste hardened
    material in joints muscles
  • To relieve pressure irritation in nerves,
    arteries blood vessels
  • To build a healthy blood stream
  • To keep youth elasticity regardless of age

9
The Master Cleanser
  • When to use it
  • When sickness has developed - for all acute and
    chronic conditions
  • When the digestive system needs a rest and a
    cleansing
  • When overweight has become a problem
  • When better assimilation and building of body
    tissue is needed
  • How often
  • For maximum benefits, follow the diet for a
    minimum of 10 days or more.
  • 40 days beyond may be safely followed for
    extremely serious cases.

10
The Master Cleanser
NOTE THE FOLLOWING DIET IS GIVEN SOLELY AS A
SUGGESTION ANYONE WHO FOLLOWS IT DOES SO
VOLUNTARILY. SINCE EACH PERSON, NATURALLY, REACTS
DIFFERENTLY, EACH INDIVIDUAL MUST USE HIS OWN
JUDGMENT AS TO ITS USE.
11
The Master Cleanser
  • Recipe
  • 2 tbsp. lemon or lime juice (approx. 1/2 lemon)
  • 2 tbsp. genuine maple syrup (not maple flavored
    syrup
  • 1/10 tsp. cayenne pepper (or to taste)
  • Water, medium hot (spring or purified water)
  • Combine the juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper
    in
  • a 10 oz. glass and fill with medium hot water.
    Never vary the
  • amount of lemon juice per glass.

12
The Master Cleanser
How Much To Drink? Take from six to twelve
glasses of the lemonade daily during the waking
period. As you get hungry, just have another
glass of lemonade. NO FOOD SHOULD BE TAKEN DURING

already a food in liquid form.

20
Testimonials
  • I'm finishing Day 5. I'm noticing two
    things...(1) my sense of smell is much more
    acute, and (2) my body awareness (I guess you'd
    call it), is far greater than normal for me. I'm
    aware of my fingers, their size - they feel
    slimmer somehow (?), and my skin seems more
    sensitive to the touch.

21
Testimonials
  • Hello Fellow Fasters,Well, I am finishing up my
    day 7 and with God's help I have 14 more days to
    go. Today was the first day I exercised and I
    felt so great! 5 miles of rollerblading...I hope
    I do not feel it tomorrow. I have been sleeping
    very well at night. Oh well, good night
    everyone...see you tomorrow.

22
Testimonials
  • I've realized another long term benefit from
    the 29 day fast I completed 10 days ago I am SO
    regular!! Since I was a baby I've had problems
    with constipation...so bad that I would cry from
    the pain while I was still in diapers Now I go
    several times a day and I haven't taken any
    laxatives!...

23
Testimonials
  • I am on day 7 also. My family is upstairs eating
    lasagna (sob) so I am hiding in the basement.
    LOL.It seems strange to talk to a total
    stranger, or a friend for that matter about
    eliminations, but what the heck...I have had the
    same experience...since day 3 nothing solid. I
    have the tea once a day and have done the SWF
    everyday since day 2. I have not had any of the
    side effects that people talk about, just a low
    grade headache on day 2. I am planning on 10
    days, maybe 12.

24
Testimonials
  • Some of the benefits that I have reaped from the
    MC are these
  • Reduced inflammation of my right knee that has
    caused me massive pain for the last 6 months.
  • Clearer skin.
  • No more heartburn.
  • Clearer mind and less emotional upsets (even when
    dealing with rebellious teenagers!)
  • A more positive attitude than I have had in
    years!
  • My sleep habits have completely changed...I
    worked the midnight shift for 41/2 years and when
    I got promoted and switched to swing shift, I
    still could not sleep until 2 or 3 am....that is
    over...I actually sleep like a normal person and
    when
  • I wake up in the morning I jump out of bed and
    start my day, rather than rolling over and dozing
    back off.
  • No more caffeine addiction....and no caffeine
    withdrawal headaches after the 2nd day.

25
Testimonials
  • Another benefit I see is that I find that the
    first few days are the hardest, so why not stay
    longer on one fast instead of starting a lot of
    different fasts? My problem in the past has been
    I get VERY bored with the lemonade. However, this
    time I am starting out with the mindset of 21
    days so I hope that will help. I'm taking it one
    day at a time, too, like always.

26
Testimonials
  • The first day has been the toughest and it was
    BAD! That night I had a horrible migraine and I
    attributed it to the lack of food. I vomited a
    lot of lemonade and took some Excedrin. I gave in
    and ate a 3-4 bites of cereal (my favorite food).
    I couldn't finish it, but was finally able to
    fall asleep. The next morning I felt okay and
    figured I would continue on. Now it's day seven
    and I have lost 14lbs. I'm 6'2" and now 250lbs.
    I'm a man for those keeping score.

27
Testimonials
  • so far I feel fine, my 3 year old keeps trying to
    feed me, that does not help - but still not a
    bite of food.The most interesting thing is how
    I seem to be lost as to how to spend my time. I
    never thought I spent so much time thinking of
    food, picking a place to get food, going to get
    food, eating food...you get the idea.
