Frequently Asked Questions
How many days will my Master Cleanse Lemonade Kit last?
We have based our kits on Stanley Burroughs recommendations for 5, 10 and 16 day cleanses based on the average number of glasses you will drink per day. However, since this is very individual depending on your goals, and hunger and energy response, please see the Which Maple Valley Organic Master Cleanse Lemonade Kit is Right for You page.
Should I stop taking my medications while doing the Master Cleanse?
Based on Peter Glickman’s book: “The Master Cleanse Coach” that you can order with your kit, prescription medications should not be stopped during the cleanse unless approved by the doctor who prescribed the medication or another qualified physician. You should consult your physician about your overall health prior to starting the cleanse and including how the cleanse may affect your prescription medications. Particularly blood thinner and high blood pressure medications as the cleanse will have similar effects as the medications, so if you also taking medicine for these issues you may get a double whammy.
The originator of the Master Cleanse, Stanley Burroughs, does recommend that over-the-counter vitamins and supplements be stopped during the Master Cleanse. The idea is to give the digestive and elimination systems a rest so they can use their energy to cleanse and rejuvenate.
What else can I eat on the Master Cleanse?
The short answer is NOTHING. The long answer is also NOTHING.
Hundreds of thousands of people have done The Master Cleanse since it was developed by Stanley Burroughs. It works. Just as written. The lemonade and maple syrup have all the necessary vitamins, minerals and calories to support the body for the duration of the cleanse.
You may drink as much of the Master Cleanse lemonade drink as you want and also the organic peppermint tea. Following the Master Cleanse lemonade regimen strictly for at least 10 days is what will give you the best results.
Is the Master Cleanse Safe?
The Master Cleanse is a liquid detox diet that provides a healthy amount of calories and nutrients specifically suited for cleansing, all while resting the digestive system and allowing the body to heal naturally and safely. If you have any concerns about whether the cleanse is right for you, please consult with your licensed health care provider prior to starting the cleanse. Peter Glickman’s book “The Master Cleanse Coach” is also very helpful and covers how to prepare in the days leading up to starting the cleanse and how to safely ease off of the cleanse.
