The ‘Lemon Aid’ Cleanse is designed for eliminating toxins and congestion while revitalizing the body. We use this cleanse in some of the longer cleansing programs, for it doesn’t create a lack of physical energy even after ten days. Its simplicity makes it ideal to follow at home, at work or while travelling. The major part of the cleanse is drinking the following mixture:
2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemons or limes
1 tablespoon Maple Syrup
1/10 teaspoon Cayenne pepper (more if desired)
Take this mixture and put it in 8 -10 ounces of water, warm or cold. The lemons or limes have to be fresh, not canned; organic ones are best if possible. The maple syrup should be grade B or C, as they are higher in mineral content.
We have found it is sometimes more convenient to make up a day’s supply at one time. We do this with:
2 cups freshly squeezed lemons
1 cup maple syrup
1 or more teaspoons of cayenne
Of this mixture, take three full tablespoons per 8 -10 ounce glass of purified water.
You should drink between 6 and 12 glasses of this lemon mixture daily (more if desired).
During this cleansing we have to keep the bowel active (to eliminate toxins), so for the first three mornings do an enema with warm water. We also suggest:
2 LBT-3, 3 times daily (increase if necessary)
During the cleanse, take no vitamins or other supplements unless otherwise specified. Of course no food is taken during this period. For a change, you can drink a cup of mint tea or vegetable broth in the evening.
Remember: drink slowly!
I often get my patients to start with this cleansing fast for three or four days and then switch to the apple cleanse as done in the Three-day Detoxification Juice Fast until the desired time to finish (often 10 days).
Remember to come out of this longer fast slowly!
