    Hmm, Did I use too much salt then? I mean, it does NOT taste like broth.. even when it was warm... I could just taste the salt, !ack! *gag*

    So you think the timing of when I drunk the tea matters? Cuz both times after I drunk it nothing happened...

    I'm gonna keep trying as well. One question though...can someone...

    During the week, I would drink the tea at about 6 or 7pm and have a BM in the morning when I woke up (around 5am). I've never done the SWF, so I can't say when you should do that during the week. The tea was MORE THAN ENOUGH laxitive for me, so I didin't even wanna touch the SWF ^_^

    Some info from the site:i use this lemon juice, or...

    Heehee. I noticed the very first time I did the master cleanse the senna tea worked faster. Now I have to drink it hours ahead of time and make sure I stay home. When I do the SWF I get up about....4 in the morning because I want to make sure it's all out by the time I go to work. Some state that it only took an hour for it to go through their system, but not me.

    Keeshi, you should try to do the SWF after you have the tea, cause the tea gets rid of the stuff in your colon (because you aren't taking in any fiber to have a BM so the tea is your fiber) and the SWF washes everything out. I know it's nasty but cmon girl! You'll be fine, the results are worth it. The longest I went was 17 days, I'm going to try for 22 or longer next go around.

    Hahahaha!!! Ok, Ok....I'll try the SWF when I do it next time. Another reason why I was reluctant to do it was I had lost 10 pounds in the first two days! I'm already skinny as it is, and I didn't want to go back to my birth weight by trying the SWF I also use the senna tea (i forgot the brand name...got it from whole foods)

    What's Senna tea? Can I get that at whole foods or trader joes?

    Its a natural laxative tea. I got my Smooth Move at Whole Foods. If they don't have that brand look for a "dieters" tea and the main ingredient should be senna leaf.

    both places have it, trader joe's might actually be cheaper....

    hmph ill donate 20 pounds if ya like! lol but remember half of the weight you lose is water weight, so dont be scared to do the SWF. some will come back when you get off the cleanse. as long as you dont go into overdrive eating taco hell and such the weight will stay off.

    i know what senna tea you got, it's in like a beigy box with blue around the top and flowers on it right? lol

    Yup! That's the one! I actually didn't gain all the weight back because I've been on a strict diet (no sweets, taco bell, etc) since doing the cleanse in January.

    Does anyone suffer from migraines (or regular headaches) and notice a huge decrease in them since doing the cleanse? I do, and the first few days were HELL for me because my body was purging all of the pain medications. After day 3, I was fine, and didn't have a headache for the rest of the cleanse!! I still get migraines, but not nearly as often as I used to. Anyone else have a positive experience like this?

    i'd drink the tea about 7 in the evening cause...

    I didn't get the celtic sea salt, I just read on curezone.com that it really made the SWF taste better.

    Yeah I hated the bottled juice. I can't use it. I use organic lemons and limes and I love it. No specific amount per glass because I make my juice for the day at one time. Also organic lemons vary in size so it really depends on which I grab. My favorite combo right now is the same amount of lemons and limes. The lemons add a little tart flavor the way I like.

    Today is day 9 (i think) for me. Buying the organic fruits is a pain. I can only find one store that regularly sells organic lemons. And since they are organic they arent "pretty". It takes me forever to pic out the ones I'm willing to use. If I don't find another store I'm just gonna stop whenever I run out of my current stash. For me days 6,7 & 8 were the hardest, the first 5 were as easy as pie.

    I can't wait to stop. I have pretty much already planned out my meals for my first week of eating, lunch and dinner. I can't wait to eat my grilled chicken ceasar wrap. Yeah. Soon, I must be patient.

    I plan on starting on Monday. This will be my third time. The first time I lasted five days. I really cheated with a salad every day for dinner. It's so mental. I wasn't even hungry. I just wanted to chew on something.

    The second time I lasted for 7-8 days. I gave in on the last day because on day 6-7, I didn't drink enough of the lemonade and I was famished. I could've kept on drinking it to catch up..but instead I ate something. Again, ALL MENTAL. It's not like I was going to die.

    So, I think this time I will shoot for 10-14 days. We'll see what happens.

    Stay strong...

    Today is my first day after breaking the fast. I went for 12 days. I wanted to do more but as school is starting up soon there are so many functions that I want to attend that will have tasty food and I don't want to miss out on that. Plus I was out of maple syrup and I didn't really feel like going to the store to buy some for 3 more days, cause then I'd have to buy lemons too. Man I'm lazy and cheap.

    I'm so excited. I missed eating. I tortured myself throughout the cleanse looking at recipes online. I was actually looking for healthy recipes but I was drooling over the recipes for hours. It was pitiful. I didn't weigh myself right before I started but I did somewhere towards the end of the cleanse so I think I may have lost 15 or so pounds, but I'm not sure. I know clothes I had bought but was unable to wear, now fit. Sweet! I just have to make sure to keep it off.

    Strangely enough I didn't suffer most of the detox symptoms described. My tongue never seemed whiter than normal. I was never really hungry, except for a few times when I went to long without lemonade. I only missed chewing, but I wasn't hungry. I had a headache the 2nd day, but that was from going too long without the lemonade. I'm still wondering if I did something wrong, cause I feel like I didn't detox like I should, or like I heard other people did. But my skin looks great, so thats a plus. In a few days I'm going to hopefully try a liver cleanse.

    Good luck to you guys!

    Hey all. I've decided that I'm gonna start on Monday. I did before like two or three years ago and I lasted about seven days. But I've never tried it again. So I think it's time. I think it is definitely mental so I will have to see how long I can last. I think I should be able to do at least the 10 days.

    Anybody have the recipe for making larger quantities at a time. I work in the morning so I want to carry what I need with me to work for the day. Any help would be thankful.

    i too carry mine to work and this is what i do. get three empty vitamin water bottles, cause they are 20 ounces each. put in 4 tablespoons maple syrup, 4 tablespoons lemon or lime juice, and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, then add water and fill up almost all the way. (you need room to shake it up)

    Thanks EmpressRi. Today is day one for me so I guess I'll let yall know how it goes.

    I'm in too, thought I don't have the extract ingredients I already stop eating and starting drinking water. This is my second day.

    I mark August 20, 20007 as the day I stop eating meat and processed food completely. I read about all the parasites and bacteria that can exist from the foods we eat and I decided that I want to rid my body of everything that is causing me harm.

    Many people don't know that their are things in our body that makes us sick and weakens our immune system, I hope that I could start this Master cleanse this week, because school starts next week for me.

    But I am going to do it for at least 40 days, I going to do it the hard way, withdrawing everything at once, I wouldn't advise this because it is pure hell.

    I just need to know if its okay to do this on my period, if it is then I'm definitely going to stick with it.

    Just got to kept that quote "That, that don't kill me makes me stronger."

    I hope to have a relationship with God, rid myself of everything that is causing my body harm, and strengthen my immune system.

    Well pray for me yall, this is going to be very hard to last for forty days.

    P.S
    As I was writing this I had to run to the bathroom.

    Peace and blessing for everyone who started this self and body cleansing journey

    I mark August 20, 20007 as the day I stop...

    Okay I just read that for a beginner it is not wise to do a whole forty days, without proper experience so I going to do 10 days then, I plan on doing the forty days around December.

    Well I was so mad when I heard that, I really want to cleanse my body, but I don't want to harm myself with during advance things and I'm only a beginner.

    Sorry yall, I have to crawl before I walk.

    Peace and blessings

    I was on my period during the cleanse and it was fine. I don't really get cramps or cravings so those issues didn't come up. I do remember in another MC thread, people discussing it was hard to deal with cravings. *TMI ahead* I did think my flow was much heavier. I have never bled that much before. Same amount of days just more flow. I'm still not sure why that happened.

    Okay... well first off it's day two for me and I guess my body is trying to rid the toxins because I got the shakes. So what did I do? I ate at cracker. Yeah... I know, I know. Hopefully that won't completely ruin the effects of the cleanse because I still want to stick with it. What do yall think?

    So my question for you EmpressRi is what is the modified?

    Here is a link to the book. If it doesn't...

    If you eat, you are restarting your digestive system and it makes it harder for you. From what I've read, it means you are now back at day 1. Although a lot of people just add an extra day on at the end.

    No matter what, don't eat. If you get the shakes or want to eat, just have another glass of lemonade. How many glasses are you drinking a day?

    Okay... well due to my poor mental stability in reagrds to this fast I've decided to cut it off early before I fall victim again. I'm gonna prepare myself again and start with the fruit flush then I'll try all over again.

    Good luck to you ladies that are still staying strong! You can do it!

    Today was my first day. I drank the detox tea last night and the salt water this morning. I drank 64 oz. of the lemonade today. I just drank the tea for the night. I had one BM this morning. I was expecting to go 3-4 times today. I think I urinated just about every 1.5 hour. The lemonade wasn't bad, but I think I added too much cayenne. My throat burned after each drink. Other than that, the day went well. I didn't have any headaches, cravings or withdrawal (I don't drink caffeine anyway).

    This is day 2 for me. The flush worked today.
    Everytime I feel hungry, I drink the lemonade and follow it up with some water. I squeezed a bunch of lemons last night for today's lemonade. I put the remainder in the refrigerator for the next use. I don't have time to squeeze lemons every morning.
    I know the recipe is for fresh-squeezed, but will my method change the effect?

    I have a meeting tonight followed by networking at a bar. I'm not giving in though.

    is the salt water flush supposed to make you feel like you have to throw it back up?

    I didn't feel that way. I do have to stay close to the bathroom though soon after drinking it. As soon as I get the urge, I have to go immediately.

    WARNING! TMI: This morning I was in the shower after eliminating (thinking I was done), and I felt like I had to fart. All of a sudden I saw this golden liquid rush down the drain. I felt kinda weird cause I couldn't control it and I've never done that before. I'm glad there was nothing solid.

    This is Day 4 for me. I felt very energetic the first 2.5 days, but I felt a little drained last night. I feel normal today. I haven't had any headaches or other issues because I wasn't addicted to caffeine or sugar. I haven't been tempted to give in even though I've seen and smelled some good food. I'm kinda afraid to break it now because of what might happen to my system if I don't break the fast as instructed in the book. Things are going well so far. I'm a little hungry now, so I'll drink some lemonade.
