This is my first major cleanse.:
My Experience with Lemonade Fast
by Espen H.
During the lemonade fast, I drink lemonade sweetened with organic maple syrup grade B or C, and I usually spice it with some hot cayenne pepper - dry powdered, or with freshly pressed juice from hot cayenne pepper.
I try to get Organic lemons, but when organic is not available, usual lemons, (possibly pesticides loaded, I know ...) works fine for me. I use only natural mountain spring water, and that is exactly what I would suggest you to use. I am personally against distillated water, but If you can't get natural mountain spring water (usually sold in large reusable gallons), filtrated water (carbon filter + reverse osmoses), then structured with "Grander Products" would be my first choice.
I don't fast entirely on lemonade, at least not every day of this fast. I also make Vegetable broth. I use different vegetable every day: carrots, onions, celery, parsley, pumpkins, beets, mangold, spinach, stinging nettle, burdock root, dandelion root and leaves ... this list is as long as you want it to be. These are just some of the vegetable/herbs that I use for this broth. I use unrefined Sea Salt , enough to make vegetable taste sweet, and sometimes I use Organic Tamari (naturally fermented soy sauce) or sometimes Miso (naturally fermented soy paste).
I usually take 2 - 3 bowls/cups of this broth daily.
If I decide to fast for 7 days or longer, I always end this fast with liver flush. Liver Flush helps insure that all the toxins possibly stored inside liver (biliary stones) and inside my gallbladder (gallstones), get flushed at the end of the fast. It also makes easier to include other foods after the fast.
I often take " Probiotics Enema ", enema containing active yogurt culture or enema with the powder taken from the "Probiotics" pills.
I also combine lemonade fast with juice fasting. I consider juice fasting stronger therapy, but it is also more complicated, and takes more work.
As with every fast, you should make sure that your have daily elimination, and that is usually achieved with salt water flush, or with an enema, or with high level of physical activity, trampoline bouncing, or with some herbal tea. Different people use different approach, but I often use different method - different day.
SALT WATER FLUSH:
Start each morning with 1 quart of water and 2 tsp. natural unrefined Sea Salt (NOT iodized or refined salt). Mix well and chug down. It's nice to massage the colon as well. This will clean your colon well. Or get an enema every day. coffee enema also works wonders!
Or drink a laxative herbal tea the night before, such as Senna (if you know you can't do the salt water the next morning). Don't take any supplements until the salt water is out of your stomach -- about 1 1/2 hours.
As I said, I usually end fast with liver flush, but after the flush, at least for a day, I eat light foods, and I drink a lot of freshly pressed vegetable juices.
One more thing ... I also combine lemonade fasting with Dr. Johanna Budwig diet - flaxseed oil + cottage cheese! try it, it is delicious!
Now, Before I end, you have to know that some people, those who suffer extreme candidiasis - the yeast syndrome, can't go on lemonade fast, or they will get worse. It is because they are extremely intolerant of any concentrated sweetener, and maple syrup is just that! They should choose juice fasting, and especially Wheatgrass juices and other fresh green juices.
They should also use grapefruit seed extract, and they should use Clarkia , because they may have parasites.
