After a period of more indulgence than usual, detoxing is a good idea. A short detox has great benefits such as a glowing skin, more energy and overall feeling great, not to mention you will likely lose a bit of excess weight. It also gives those benefits more rapidly than just ‘cutting down’ on food, and it will give your liver a much-needed break and help your body naturally cleanse itself of toxins.
When it comes to cleansing The Lemon Detox is the original fasting cleanse/diet, first conceived over sixty years ago and now practised regularly by many thousands of people in over 40 countries around the world. It has been followed by celebrities including Anna Friel, Naomi Campbell and of course Beyoncé and is supported by leading healthcare practitioners like Amanda Griggs at London’s famous Balance Clinic, and legendary naturopath Jan de Vries. The Lemon Detox embraces the benefits of fasting to naturally help cleanse the body of toxins and kickstarts a healthier lifestyle and weight loss, so perfect for this time of year.
This internationally acclaimed Detox involves fasting for typically between 5-10 consecutive days (though it’s not unusual for this to be extended to up to 14 days) during which no solid foods are consumed, allowing your digestive system to rest and your body to enter fasting mode. During your chosen detox period you drink The Lemon Detox fasting drink which is made up of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup with fresh lemon juice, water and a pinch of cayenne pepper, this provides energy and nutrients in liquid form, helping make the fasting process easier, supporting you as you fast and banishing any hunger pangs. The Madal Bal Syrup is assimilated directly into the bloodstream, placing no additional burden on the digestive system. It provides a liquid medium essential for the efficient flushing of wastes from the system, whilst the lemon juice assists the cleansing process, acting like an internal detergent to dissolve excess fats, and the cayenne pepper helps speed up metabolism, thus promoting circulation and the elimination of toxins.
One glass of the Lemon Detox drink contains about 80 calories and you typically drink 6-8 glasses of the drink per fasting day (though this can be reduced if you are a more experienced faster), also drink 2 litres of water to keep well hydrated. Herbal teas are also permitted.
So, it doesn’t involve a huge shopping list like many detox diets do! The ultimate in convenience the Lemon Detox formula is nutrient-rich so is an adequate food replacement, meaning you don’t have to think about what you can and can’t eat. All you need are lemons, cayenne Pepper and the Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup which is a unique blend of natural tree syrups derived from saps of the finest Canadian maple and South Asian palm trees, including coconut, Palmyra and kitul trees (N.B. nothing to do with palm oil). Each selected specifically for naturally adding a range of trace elements including potassium, manganese and zinc which makes it ideal for as an ingredient in the Lemon Detox drink. (Sometimes, pure maple syrup is used instead which has fewer or no trace elements).
You can read all about the detox in more depth in the book ‘The Lemon Detox Diet – Rejuvenation Sensation’ which is the culmination of years of careful refinement, by a team of Swiss practitioners led by Dr K A Beyer, of the principles of legendary naturopath Stanley Burroughs’ which created this Master Cleanse.
