Ok.. I've done Master Cleanse in the past using Maple Syrup and I had good results. I was not a fan of the SWF, so I only did it once in the past and just went on with the Cleanse as instructed. Fast Forward to the present. I decided to do Master-Cleanse
again but using Blackstrap Molasses this time (as I have a lot of it in the house due to Potassium deficiency issues I deal with off and on) I started the Cleanse today with a SWF. The Salt-Water-Flush
(done as instructed) yielded no results. Not only did I have no bowel movements of significance but I have retained all of the water I drank and all of the water from the Lemonade I've had since then. I have had 3.8 pounds
of water for the day and only eliminated .8 of it.
This is very unusual for me. Now, I AM mid cycle so I may be retaining water for hormonal reasons but my past experience was that The Master Cleanse
helped to prevent me from retaining water during those times of the month when I normally retained water so it is very surprising to me that it would contribute to water retention or not prevent water retention this time around. I can still feel the salt water in my stomach (I actually felt like vomiting earlier but thankfully it hasn't come up that way). Do you think it is the Salt-Water-Flush
that is causing this and the Cleanse will work as normal tomorrow if I omit it or do you think the Molasses may be a contributing factor. I am quite distressed at this turn of events!
