Although, from the outside, it would seem that a Master Cleanse would save you some bucks for a couple of weeks, you actually do have to make a certain cash outlay: lemons do not come free, and you need a bunch. Maple syrup is at a premium (but… I have done my research, and it seems that nobody can prove that that maple syrup is organic, so…find a place that sells Grade B and deal with it. This time, I only found Grade A, so I’ll have to deal with that.)
That said, I scored about 30 lemons for about $11.00. I’m happy with that price right now…must scour some more locales (you never know who is selling huge organic lemons at 3 for $1.00.. at least you can hope!)
I also have to think about the herbal laxative: Since Celestial Seasonings discontinued my favorite one, I’ve become a fan of Smoothe Move, by Traditional Medicinals.
Now, on to the new info:
A number of my clients have balked at doing the salt flush in the morning — they feel they do not have enough time in the morning to deal with that, and, so, quite a few have gone to doing the salt flush at night, when they have time to sit around and wait to run . (I’ve just always made it a point to wake up two hours earlier, but I can certainly understand wanting to sleep a few minutes longer in the morning!)
Unfortunately, no one has ever come back to tell me the results of doing the flush at night, i.e. does it make it easier to stick with? Because of the “controversy,” this time, I am going to do the salt flush at night and see how that works. I’ll do it about 7 pm, and see how that works for me, and I’ll let you know.
Some of my clients have told me that they have found a powder version of Master Cleanse. That is all well and good, but I do think that using the fresh lemons is better. I have experimented with making up my lemon juice the night before, and it just isn’t that good. Since the powder is on the expensive side, for now, I think I’ll stay with dragging around a 2-quart bottle of my fresh lemonade all day.
I’ll let you know how it is going.
BTW, Just to let you know: I’ve challenged myself to post at least every week in 2011. If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way. Margaret
