08-31-2005, 07:53 PM
........started the Master Cleanse last night!! Yippeeeeeee!! I don't know if every day will be like this, but I can't believe I went the whole day without food and it didn't even bother me! Strangely, I had more energy today. Just wanted to thank you all for the help you gave me the first two weeks. I really appreciate it.
I do have another question. Surprise surprise!! LOL I've been reading alot about garlic and the benefits it has for cleansing and killing possible parasites. I was wondering about putting a little garlic in the lemonade concoction. What do you think about this? Thanks again!! :D

I used to have a book on the mastercleanse. Can't find it. Can you give me a condensed version? I felt good after I did that. I think I probably lent my book out. Darn. I'm interested to see if that jump starts you. I remember lemon water and Type B syrup. Not much else though. Thanks!

I don't know about garlic, but while doing a colon hydrotherapy session the l was told that grinding up the papaya seeds and eating them with the papaya will send parasites on their way ;) She said the seeds are very spicy.
Have any of you heard of that??
Wonderful job of 2 weeks raw!! It only gets better from here! Just always keep in mind how a bite of cooked can bring out that amazingly strong cooked craving!!

I have never heard about papaya seeds, but I know parasites don't like pumpkin seeds, cloves and black walnut hull.

I did a juice fast on Sunday in an attempt to get rid of a migraine. I wasn't nearly as hungry as I thought I'd be, which is amazing because I eat like a horse. LOL I don't know if I could do it for more than a day, though.

Helen, thanks for those links. I'm still looking for my book, no luck. This will help me. I think it will give me a jump start into eating 100% because I wom't want to put anything yuky back in. Now, when to do it!!! thanks again.

Thanks for posting the links Helen. Sorry I wasn't here to answer you Joyce!
I woke up this morning to start the second day of my cleanse and I am not hungry at all! This is so strange because I'm usually starving when I wake up in the mornings. I do have trouble gagging down the salt water, but I manage. :D

I have a question.
Isn't it unhealthy to drink salt water? Doesn't it dehydrate a person or something? I'm just thinking here about movies with people stranded in life rafts on the ocean and they can't drink the water because of the salt.
Info ... anyone.

Shona, a quart of sea salt water is taken in the morning just as a flush to make you "go". You don't drink it all day long or anything like that.

I'm not familiar with Master Cleanse aside from seeing it mentioned in forums.
I can't imagine trying to drink a whole quart of salt water. Doesn't sound very appetizing ... :eek:

YES, drinking salt water does dehydrate you, if you drink one quart of salt water, it takes two quarts of liquid from your body, this is probably the theory behind the master cleanse.
The easiest way to drink something that doesn't taste good, it to drink it as cold as you can stand it, (less flavor then) and with a straw, it will go past the taste buds of sweet, sour, salty etc, which are located at the sides of the tongue.
AND CONGRATUALTIONS ON TWO WEEKS RAW!!! YOU RAWK!!!
That is so wonderful. I bet you feel great.!!!

Here is what it says about the salt water (don't know if it's true or not because you can't drink salt water out at sea):
"Drink the entire quart of salt and water first thing in the morning. This must be taken on an empty stomach. The salt and water will not separate but will stay intact and quickly and thoroughly wash the entire tract in about one hour. Several eliminations will likely occur. The salt water has the same specific gravity as the blood, hence the kidneys cannot pick up the water and the blood cannot pick up the salt. This may be taken as often as needed for proper washing of the entire digestive system."

The most benefit of garlic you will get if you eat it raw. I mince garlic in to salad and pour olive or coconut oil. This way it does not irritate my stomach lining. Garlic has alicin - a strong antibactirial antibiotic taht practically evaporates within first 5-10 minutes. That is why garlic has such a distinct odor.

Just wanted to say congrats on your 2 weeks raw! :)

Thanks everyone! I am lovin' this Master Cleanse. I can't believe that I'm not starving. It's just the strangest thing.........I have more energy right now then I've ever had. I didn't see an increase in energy my first 2 weeks raw, but I did notice I was less tired, but this MC is giving me a bunch of energy. I'm excited to see how many days I can do this. Have a great weekend everyone! :)
