I realize this may be a controversial issue for some of you out there,
and I know not all of you will agree with my opinion, but I wanted to
share my experience of this so called "fad" Cleanse that has been
around since 1940.

The
cleanse consists of fasting, for a period of time, usually 10 days,
sometimes longer. In that time you take no food at all. But you do
drink 8-12 8 oz glasses of a lemonade mixture consisting of freshly
squeezed, organic lemons, Grade B Maple syrup, and Cayenne Pepper in
the proper amounts.

I tried this cleanse about 2 years ago, and
was only able to make it 3 days, I was under alot of stress, my
godfather had passed away, so I came off it very early, although, with
a little more discipline, I could have made the 10 days.

This time I started the cleanse Feb 21. The first 3 days, I missed food and had a few hunger pangs...after that I was fine.

During the 11 days I was on the Cleanse I lost 12 pounds.

I
have been back to eating normally for about 4 days now. I have not
started eating sugar or dairy again, and, I have no desire to do
so-before the fast I could not get my hands on enough sugar.

Last
night I had a 6 oz piece of filet mignon, (my first piece of meat since
eating again) and had stomach distress for the first time starting at
3:30 this morning. Today I think I will stick to healthy eating.

I
am eating alot of fresh fruits and vegtables now. I am eating rye
wafers and Kashi cereal. My eating habits have NEVER been this clean
before, but I have never felt this clear before, either.

While I
would like to eat cheese again, it tends to constipate me, so I think I
am going to stick with the clean eating for a while.

I think my Rhuematoid Arthritis is gone. I have had no episodes since the first few days of the cleanse.

I KNOW my chronic Fatigue is gone. And so is that irritating Chronic Throat Clearing thing that seems to come with CF.

I
sleep much better. It seems my palpitations have disappeared as well,
and I did switch to green tea from coffee while on the cleanse. This is
a cleanse. Not a diet. The weight loss you may experience is just an
extra added benefit!


Anyways I just wanted to share my experience. Please feel free to share your thoughts!</font>

CONGRATS![img]smileys/smiley32.gif[/img]My experience is very similar! I also was a sugar addict, and haven't had any desire for it since being off the cleanse. FRUIT is almost too sweet for me! I haven't tried any meat yet, just eggs.


My sinus issues are almost GONE! It's allegy season, so when I feel a flare up coming on, I make a Master Cleanse drink and I'm instantly clear! I'm so happy for you with your results! The cleanse is awesome. The only thing I'm sad about is I have to wait until May to do it again[img]smileys/smiley19.gif[/img][img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]

I lost 7 pounds on the cleanse, 3 more on my OJ days, so 10 pounds and 2% body fat total. Have not gained any back and my tummy continues to shrink![img]smileys/smiley4.gif[/img]

I had printed off something regarding this drink months ago and just attempted to drink it yesterday, but failed. The 'recipe' I had consisted of 1 tbsp of real maple syrup, the juice of 1/2 a freshly squeezed lemon, Cayenne pepper and enough hot water to fill your cup. I'm not sure if it was the pepper or what, but I could hardly stand the taste of the drink. I had been so anxious to finally try it to see how/if it worked, but the taste was too much for me. Any suggestions on making this better? Thanks.

I completey agree! Cleansing had made me feel so much better and I notice that body responds to "junk" much differently..therefore, I don't really eat it anymore and I don't miss it either. I wish I had started cleansing years ago.

I am doing a cleanse that is a month long - different than Isagenix (which i will be doing aterwards) - complete colon cleansing and rated #1 - which is cool.

Although there is no diet plan, they do recommend that you eat healthy during the cleanse. I am nervous as what is expelled is GROSS...but I definitely need health! It is called Colonix. You can google it for more info cause I dont have the site addy (although i suppose I could google it for ya...hehe)

Anyway - never heard of the Cayenne pepper cleanse.

FrutaVidamom - I LOVE Agnus Dei (any version).

I found this site recently and they just posted a clip of how to make the lemonade. They also have some good information on how to make it through the 10 days.

It's yummy too me! But you have to use freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice. If you use that from concentrate juice stuff it taste YUK! You literally taste all the chemicals and preservatives they used in it.I especially liked licking the spoonIt's definately something I could drink on a daily basis.
