Hi. I'll try to make this a short story!!! I became a vegan 02/06, went raw 11/06, fell off the wagon a month ago and having GREAT difficulty going back(I have gained 8 lbs, UGH). I decided to do the master cleanse to jump start going back to raw (I am on day three). Yesterday I found out I am having surgery to remove a benign tumor from my femur in two weeks (May 31). Now I have been reading people need "massive" amounts of protein to recover from surgery.
My questions are......
Should I stop the master cleanse?
Will I be okay eating raw to recover from surgery?

I dnt see a problem with raw and recovery! Because raw lets your body heal!
But I would not do the mastercleanse right now (or anytime arround the surgery!) I think that is too much for the body! Maybe ask the doctor what he/she recommends!
And I mean 8 lbs gained arent the world! You will get rid of them very fast even without mastercleanse!! :)
all the best!

I would ease off the master cleanse and allow my body to put together some reserves of energy and nutrients.
Also, I would start to do affirmations and visualizations...
envision your body healing quickly. Actually imagine, in your minds eye, or some symbolic way, you tissues knitting back into their healthiest form, scar-free, smooth, strong, resilient.
see yourself as you will be at the time your healing is complete- whole and vibrant.
tell your deep inner mind that this surgery is healing, so it can remain comfortable and calm before during and after surgery. Pain is unneccessary, so your body can skip it, focusing it's energy on healing instead.
These are the basics. You can also get some good ideas from the book "Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster."
Vitamin C and zinc rich foods are great for promoting tissue healing.

Stanley Burroughs does not recommend doing the mc pre or post operatively. Hope you have an uneventful surgery and speedy recovery ~ Cathy
