Lemons for Cleansing

Stanley Burroughs' book "The Master Cleanser" contains the Lemonade Diet. It was originally intended as a new and more effective method to treat ulcers. A pioneer of alternative medicine, Stanley Burroughs is also known for his other classic alternative medical text, "Healing for the Age of Enlightenment". Burroughs developed the lemonade juice diet as a liquid mono-diet that produces a detoxifying and cleansing effect to the body. Based on his medical observations, Burroughs saw that the lemonade diet aids the stimulation of healthy tissue growth. Please be aware that it will work for you as long as you are not Metabolic Type from Group 2, dominant in protein and fats.

The Stanley Burrough's Lemonade Diet is a dietary program that should be followed for at least ten days and can be performed for forty days or more. Unlike other diets, the Stanley Burroughs Lemonade Diet is not designed primarily for weight loss but for body cleansing. Also known as the Lemonade Fast, the Lemonade Diet is recommended for individuals who are suffering from a serious medical condition. Although the Lemonade Flush Diet is viewed with skepticism in the medical community, tens of thousands have used this treatment in the last several decades, and vouch for its validity.

"Thanks again for the inspiration and information. I've lost about 12-14 pounds. Waist is down 2.5 to 3 inches. Have to get another belt because the ones I have are all last notch. I've walked 46 miles since starting. Rode the bike 14 miles. Have worked each day (some better than others). I have a great feeling of peace, even though I hit some pretty stressful events head on. I am also giving serious thought to other work/life things. I guess the clarity and focus come from not eating stressful foods. It is also a time to look at priorities. Can't wait to see you guys next week."

Is The Lemonade Diet Also A Reducing Diet?

As a reducing diet it is superior in every way to any other system because it dissolves and eliminates all types of fatty tissue. Fat melts away at the rate of about two pounds a day for most persons - and without any harmful side effects. All mucus disease such as colds, flu, asthma, hay fever, sinus and bronchial troubles are rapidly dissolved and eliminated from the body, leaving the user free from the varied allergies which cause difficult breathing and clogging of the sinus cavities. Allergies exist as a result of an accumulation of these toxins and they vanish as we cleanse our body. People who are overweight often experience these difficulties, and the more they continue to eat the toxic fat-producing foods which cause their obesity, the more their other ailments multiply.

"I was 6' 1" and weighed a little over 230 pounds about June of 2002. I felt terrible, too. My wife went on a 100% raw vegetable and fruit diet about 3 or 4 months before and after watching her getting healthier and younger looking and happier, I decided I wanted to feel that way too, even if it meant giving up foods that I really wanted (read "crave"). I spent 6 months eating only raw food and dropped to about 198 eating as much raw fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds as I wanted. Then on 4 Jan 2003, I started a 20 day Master Cleanse. On January 24, I weighed 175 pounds. I still eat 90%+ raw and have done the cleanse 4 times since then and now weigh about 165. (By the way, originally I couldn't fit in my 42 inch waist pants. Now I am a little less than my 34 inch waist pants. P.G. Clearwater, FL

Mucus disorders are brought about by the eating or drinking of mucus- forming foods. In other words, if you have these diseases, you ate them! As we stop feeding our family mucus-forming foods, we can eliminate their mucus and allergy diseases for the rest of their lives. The types of disease which are a result of calcium deposits in the joints, muscles, cells and glands are readily dissolved and removed from the body. Cholesterol deposits in the arteries and veins also respond to the magic cleansing power of the lemonade diet. All skin disorders also disappear as the rest of the body is cleansed. Boils, abscesses, carbuncles, and pimples all come under this category. These conditions are, again, Nature's effort to eliminate poisons quickly from the body.

All types of infections are the result of these vast accumulations of poisons being dissolved and burned or oxidized to produce further cleansing of the body. Therefore, rapid elimination of the toxins relieves the need for infectious fevers of all kinds. Infections are not "caught," they are created by Nature to assist in burning our surplus wastes. Yes, the lemonade diet is a reducing diet, but much more. Just as many other disorders also cleared up at the same time when it was used to heal ulcers, when it is used as a reducing diet other ailments are also corrected in the process. People build strong, healthy bodies from the correct foods or they build diseased bodies from incorrect foods. When disease does become necessary, the lemonade diet will prove its superior cleansing and building ability.

Basic Procedure

Pint Mason Jar

  • 3 Tablespoons of Organic Maple Syrup
  • Entire juice from one lemon
  • 1/8 of a teaspoon of our Cayenne Pepper Blend Powder, or more
  • Fill the rest of the jar with purified water

To do it according to Stanley Burroughs recommendation, make up a minimum of 4 jars or a maximum of 8 jars for consumption each day. If you do not know how much you will need in the beginning, make 6 jars for each day and adjust this quantity as experience dictates.

Alternative Method

You may not have the time and circumstances to make a 10 ounce glass of the lemonade 6 to 12 times a day. What most folks do, instead, is make up one or two quarts of it at a time and pour out of such large containers whenever it is time to drink a glass. The disadvantage of doing this is that the enzymes in the lemon juice oxidize - mix with the air in the container and are destroyed. The following is a procedure for preserving the enzymes in the juice and at the same time provide enough juice to last you for three days or more.

First you need to determine what your " liquid meal size" is - a cup (8oz) or a pint (16oz). This means how much can you comfortably drink at one time, say within five minutes. Most folks weighing 150lbs or less find a cup to be their usual limit. Larger sized people can easily drink a pint at a time. Once you have this determined, purchase two cases (24 jars) of the pint sized Mason jars or three cases (36 jars) of the 8oz size. They run about 7.00 per case in grocery stores such as Publics, and 5.00 per case at Big Lots.

Here is the advantage of using mason jars for your juices. When you fill them up to the tippy top, screw down the disc and ring so there is no air to speak of inside, and place in a refrigerator, the contents will now have its enzymes preserved for three days or more. You then take out a jar, consume the contents within a few minutes and know it is still "fresh" in terms of enzymes and other nutrients. So, now you can make up a whole bunch of these these servings at one time and have them last for three full days.

Amounts needed for each ingredient per jar are as follows:

  • 8oz Mason Jar
  • 2 tablespoons of Organic Maple Syrup
  • Juice from one half of a lemon
  • 1/16 of a teaspoon of our Cayenne Pepper Blend Powder, or more
  • Fill the rest of the jar with purified water

To do it according to Stanley Burroughs recommendation, make up a minimum of 8 jars per day or a maximum of 16 jars for consumption each day. If you do not know how much you will need in the beginning, make 12 jars for each day and adjust this quantity as experience dictates.
