Master Cleanser Plus Program

The Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet, developed by Stanley Burroughs, is used to help detoxify and heal the body.
Our enhancements make it better.

Let me start by saying that I have done the Master Cleanse Diet many times, following the instructions of Stanley Burroughs, since 1981. I think it is a wonderful program for cleansing and detoxify but with problems. It was developed at a time when there was much less information available then we have today. Now, with the help of nutritional science and homeopathy, it can be significantly improved.:

Master Cleanser Plus Program
The Master Cleanser is a popular cleanse developed by Stanley Burroughs. He a 10 day program of fasting using a drink. This cleanse has lots of benefits but also some shortcomings. On the one hand it is a rest for your digestive and eliminative organs as you eat no solid food. Your intake consists of six glasses a day of a lemonade drink. He recommends using 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of maple grade B or C maple syrup and 1/10th teaspoon of cayenne pepper. You then drink this mixture from 6 to 12 times per day.

While there are many benefits we have found there are also problems which can be corrected.


  1. Too sweet.
    Using 2 Tablespoons of maple syrup 6-12 times daily is a huge amount of pure sugar. Given that the vast majority of Americans suffer from blood sugar fluctuations we recommend cutting the dose in half.

    • We recommend 1 tablespoon of maple syrup per serving.

  2. Insufficient opening of detox organs.
    Detoxification is a complex process and requires that the detox pathways be open. This means that the liver, kidney and lymphatics need to be open. While the Master Cleanser does not really address this very well the addition of the Pekana Homeopathic Basic Detox Kit does this very well.

    • We recommend adding Pekana Homeopathic Basic Detox Kit 20 drops of each of these homeopathic remedies (apo-Hepat, Renelix & Itires) added to other drinks 2 to 3 times daily.

  3. Bowel and Liver Cleansing.
    Again the Lemonaide diet is deficient. Although it reconnects salt water flushes it does little to actually cleanse the colon other then running some water through it. In addition it does little for detox of the liver. To accomplish this we recommend doing coffee enemas during the cleanse. The coffee enema is famous for rapid deep cleansing of the liver and colon.

    • We recommend doing coffee enema's throughout the entire program

  4. Nutritional Deficits
    The Master Cleanser provides little in the way of micronutrients and thus can deplete the body during the cleanse. To enhance this we recommend using the remarkable nutrient product intraMAX. This comprehensive, live source, richly organic liquid mineral complex is known for its ability to detox as well as nourish the body. Perfect to add to the drinks.

    • We recommend Use 1 to 2 capfuls of intraMAX daily.

  5. Liver Gall Bladder Stagnation
    The liver gall bladder flushes are an optional enhancement. This will help to detoxify and cleanse the liver and gall bladder of toxic buildup as well as liver and gall bladder stones. It is gentle and easy to do.
