Getting started on the Master Cleanse directions
What you eat before the cleanse is important. For many reasons, you don’t want to go from eating a heavy diet right into a fast. Your detox symptoms will be harsher. Eat a light vegetarian diet filled with fruits and vegetables the day before you start your master cleanse. Include fresh juice if possible. Preparing your body this way will make it easier to ease into this cleanse.
How to do the Master Cleanse
This is the diet plain and simple. You must not eat any solid food. Do not vary the amount of lemon juice needed for the recipe, and if you feel sick or hungry, it often helps to drink more lemonade or rest.
The purpose of the salt water flush and the herbal laxative is to aid in cleansing, to help in elimination. If your stomach feels upset it is probably because you are not eliminating properly.

Helpful items: Lemon squeezerNote: Grade A Maple syrup is more processed then grade B. Lemons and syrup should be organic to ensure a pure cleanse.Directions: Combine the water, lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper in a 10oz glass.The recipe can be made ahead, but not longer then a day.
The salt water flush
The salt water flush, done every morning on an empty stomach, is an important part of the master cleanse directions. Stanley Burroughs says to do this as often as needed for proper elimination of the digestive tract.
Mix 1 quart of lukewarm water to 2 teaspoons of pure sea salt (un-iodized).
Drink the whole quart. It will clean your digestive tract in about 1 hour and several eliminations will occur. Don’t go anywhere within 2 hours of drinking the salt water flush, as you will need to be near a toilet.
Breaking the lemonade diet cleanse safely
It is very important to follow the master cleanse directions and break the lemonade diet correctly. You cannot just jump into a regular meat filled, processed food diet or you will get sick. It’s not healthy. Also, after you cleansed your body, would you even want to?It is recommended that you follow a plant based, vegetarian diet for a few days immediately following the cleanse.
First and second day after the diet
Stanley Burroughs advises breaking the fast with several 8oz glasses of orange juice for day one and day two. It will prepare your digestive system to properly digest again, and get it back to normal.
Third day after the diet
On the third day after the fast drink fresh orange juice for breakfast. Have raw fruit for lunch and a vegetable salad for dinner.
On the fourth day, it’s best to live on a mostly raw food vegetarian diet.
