View Full Version : started MC today inc SWF - mmmm
04-20-2008, 07:21 AM
I've started the MC today - I did the SWF this morning also but it hasn't come back out :eek: I'v also had 2 glasses of the lemonade, I put in half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper as I quite like the firey taste - tho it might be a different story in 3 days time when I'm sick of it :D lol
If I have 6 glasses a day that will be 3 spoons of pepper - is that going to do me any good or should I cut it back a bit.
It took me around 20 min to get through the litre of salt water - I'm interested to know how long eveyone else takes & if I should be trying to drink it much quicker.
big smiles :) :D

Hi tanglewood. So you did it! Good for you. Did you try rubbing your tongue with 1/2 of a cut lemon first (before drinking the SW)? I seems to deaden the taste making it a bit easier. Also try using a straw to drink it down. I found this really helped me. As for what comes "out" of all this, well I guess you will just have to wait and see! Oh yes, I also used about 1/4 tsp. cayenne with each glass of "lemonade".

Just take that SWF slow...don't worrry about it if it's not for you. I've done many MC's and never use the SWF because it's not effective for me - excellent for others- filling up on all that salt (which I personally think is like adding a toxin to remove a toxin) just makes me bloated and sick..tried it several times and just finally got the message when no action occured at all during the day....
There are plenty of other elimination alternatives if this one is slow moving...

I think some people have to find a different formula than the 32 ounces of water + 2 teaspoons of sea salt. The salt is not supposed to be absorbed by the body and flushes through the intestinal tract like blood. The formula above is the same consistency as blood. It's always moved through me without any problems, but I have a friend who has to use 3 teaspoons and a little more water to get the same effect after she played around with it. I undertand it's not for everyone though, but just wanted to explain that. Glad there are other methods to clear the toxins. I'm going to go for it and purchase an enema bag and see if I can do it that way...:eek: I'm kind of tired of the SWF even though it works for me.
Good luck with your master cleanse Tanglewood! :)

I hear that it takes about three days for the SWF to really start working. Once you get to day four it should be working wonders. If you're using celtic sea salt, I also understand that that has a lot of health benefits to it. I personally am not crazy about the way i feel when drinking the SWF, but luckily this time around I find that i can drink it a lot easier. The first time I did the MC which was last summer, I used to feel soooo sick after the flush. now the only discomfort I feel is while drinking it. It is encouraged to drink it as fast as you can, but of course you have to do what you can to not throw up:eek: Sometimes I drink the tea in the morning and evening if I don't want the SWF, but the tea takes like 5 hours to work and also gives me stomache cramps. If i have to go out during the day, the SWF works better for me- because I get it over with in that first hour or so in the morning.
Ok, well good luck. Maybe you can join us on the 40 day MC board. You don't have to be planning 40 days. We are all on different days and going for different lenghts of time. But we would love to have you:)

Hello again :) its now 8pm here in the UK and still nothing from the SWF - I'll do it for another couple of days and see what happens and if still nothing I'll try upping the salt to 3 teaspoons, as it's not suposed to be absorbed by the body I guess it wont hurt to try.
I'l try the lemon on the tongue but I didn't find it half as bad as I thought, it just felt a bit strange drinking a jug of warm salty water.
Things we do to better ourselves eh! Its quite funny really - I'm staying at my mums for a little while as she's broken her leg - but this morning as I was sat at my laptop sipping my salty water mum appears at the doorway and asks why I'm drinking out of her jug:confused: she then drops one of her crutches in shock when I tell her what it is - she now thinks I've completely lost the plot :D must say I'm pretty starving now but I'll get over it I hope.
big smiles :D

Tanglewood, even though it worked for a friend, I wouldn't recommend 3 teaspoons as then you probably will absorb the salt in your body. Do not take offense at this, but sometimes it takes 3-4 days for it to work because the colon is very clogged with impacted waste, especially for former meat eaters. Think of it like a drain, you have to have a very powerful force to blast through a really clogged one. With the SWF each day you drink it, it's starting to whack away at the sludge. What will happen is when it starts to work is you will see solid waste start to move and then boom a flush. After that you should just experience the flush.
If this never happens for you, you can drink the senna tea morning and night to get the same effect. I'm not sure which brands are availabile in the UK, but Yogi brand offers a good one and Smooth Move (traditional medicinals) are good. Smooth Move even has a chocolate flavor. These aren't raw of course, but hey you have to move the toxins when you're cleansing.
My solidarity to your Mom. I know what it feels like to break the leg. I hope you both heal well and strong.
I really recommend you read Stanley Burroughs' Master Cleanser if you haven't already. Here's a free link: http://healthandlight.com/TheMasterCleanse.pdf
