MASTER CLEANSER: reasons people fail

I’m thinking a lot about Master Cleanser right now (duh!)

The first time I did a Master Cleanse, it was all by myself. Nobody had any misgivings, and nobody had to quit. I just went on and on until I stopped (I forgot to read that the Master Cleanse can be done up to 40 days, so I stopped at 10 days). I did great.

Once, I agreed to to a Master Cleanse with a friend. I did great. She, on the other hand, began to experience fatigue, extreme hunger, and faintness on the second day. (I should mention that she was on the “hefty” side). I have since seen a number of people experience the same “symptoms” on the Master Cleanse, and I have come upon an explanation as to why some people have serious trouble on the Master Cleanse.

The way I see it, some people who try the Master Cleanse but cannot go through with it are fearsome. I really do believe that some people have a fear of not eating food Most such people are what I call “constant feeders”,(i.e., they eat often during the day, as opposed to eating only at mealtimes, three times a day). “Fear eaters” have trouble on any kind of diet, because they are in constant fear that they will not get enough food. On the Master Cleanse, they do not get any of what they consider food, and, so, they freak out early on, and cannot continue with the Master Cleanse. (I base my theory on what people have told me: that they felt they were not getting enough nourishment — although the Master Cleanse fulfills all nutritional requirements), or that they did not have enough protein in their diet (although they had previously done well on low protein weight loss diets consisting primarily of raw salads).

The other group of people I have found who do not do well on the Master Cleanse are those who feel they must alter the recipe. As I see it, the recipe was developed because it worked. Alterations risk failure or lack of benefits (either way would be failure as I see it). The Master Cleanse, as it was originally devised, works extremely well and is quite easy to do.

When people begin to tinker with things, quite often, they come up with something else. In the case of the Master Cleanse, if it is changed, it does not work, and, so, people will experience problems completing a Master Cleanse program.

I have broken my Juice Feast and started a Master Cleanser.

I had already figured out that, if you try something, and it just doesn’t agree with you, you should probably stop it. I do slog on for a bit, just to make sure I cannot get used to whatever it is, but there comes a time when I have to pull the plug.

Anyone who has come into contact with me in the past few weeks will likely be happy to know this.

No, I did not suddenly become enlightened – the tip-off as to why we were not getting along was a big-time physical issue (yes, boys and girls, raw foodies can get sick). Good! I know! I can get on with healing!

So… when I broke the Juice Feast, I  started a Master Cleanser. Anytime I have had to face down something seriously annoying (i.e., a big problem) in the past, it has helped me. I am putting my faith in it this time, too. I do know that, no matter what, I will feel better.

I do like the Master Cleanser. I love my lemonade. I am happy and friendly now.

What is the Master Cleanser, you might ask. Actually, I have spent the last couple of days writing a page detailing the Master Cleanser: what it does, why you would do it, how you do it, and responses to misgivings and/or objections. Please do look at it and see if it doesn’t answer your questions.

I will be adding more information as I go along on my Master Cleanse. Meanwhile, if you like, you can check out Stanley Burroughs’ book on the Master Cleanser Unfortunately, Burroughs’ fantastic book on natural healing, Healing for the Age of Enlightenment, in which he first published the Master Cleanser, is no longer published (I have a few copies, available at a reasonable price, if you are interested)

WHY DOES DIABETES DISAPPEAR? Why are medical professionals stymied?

I’m just slightly amazed or even disturbed right now as I enjoy the uncommon luxury of watching daytime TV…. Just now, on the Montel Williams show, two surgeons have been discussing gastric bypass surgery and showing morbidly obese people, and film clips of their operations (I imagine we may see the post-surgery people and hear their testimonies).

What so disturbs me is that one of the surgeons has just said that the medical profession has no idea why , in patients with diabetes, after the surgery, in 85% of the cases, the diabetes disappears…..

They have no idea??? How come I know then??

The reason the diabetes disappears is that one of the side-effects of gastric bypass surgery is that patients can tolerate only very small amounts of food, and they cannot tolerate sugars and starches easily. With only a few ounces of food at a time, and without the sugars and starches, and the junk food, of course, the diabetes vanishes. What is so difficult to understand here?

I have often worked with obese diabetic clients who, as they eliminated starches and sugars from their diets, found that their insulin requirements decreased or even ceased. This is one of the major selling points that Atkins used for his low-carb regimen, and it remains right-on!

The Atkins Diet recommends reducing carbohydrates to such a daily low that it is virtually impossible to eat even a slice of bread (which exceeds the daily carb limit for the Induction Phase). Atkins derivatives, such as 40-30-30 and the Zone limit the carbs by requiring that any eating be done in a regimented combination of 40% carbs with 30% protein and 30% fat (it is very hard to eat enough protein to justify the carbs in a Twinkie, and it is boring to go searching for protein just to justify a handful of potato chips).

Although most raw foodists hold that simply adopting a raw food diet will bring about noticeable weight reduction in those who need it, the Atkins system can be followed by raw foodists, as well. Eating low glycemic index vegetables and fruit in the early phases of raw food diet can help satisfy the psychological desire that many beginners have to keep eating.… 2 cups of raw spinach have only 4 grams of carbohydrates!!!!

Eliminating high glycemic fruit and vegetables at the start of a raw food diet can help with other health issues (such as candidiasis, arthritis, candidiasis, hypoglycemia, menopause-related issues, and even cancer), as well and eating raw nuts and seeds can also help to stave off cravings. As a matter of fact, the Atkins diet Induction Phase very closely mirrors the Phase One Candidiasis diet (which is very low-carb), and the vegetable, fruit, nut and seed sections of the Phase One Candidiasis diet very closely conform to raw food recommendations as to suitable diet inclusions (yes, of course, raw foodists are supposed to ignore the animal products listed in the candidiasis diet).

Adoption of a low-carbohydrate diet, low in sugars and starches of any kind, is key to reducing insulin dependency. Added side effects include (but are not limited to) the amazing fact that weight reduction will more than likely follow (although the connection here has the allopathic medical profession puzzled), and healing or amelioration of a number of medical issues (which the medical profession tends to view as unrelated to weight issues, and prefers to treat as independent issues, rather than as symptoms).
