Do any of you have any cleanses or detoxes that you like? I really like the master cleanse (aka lemonade cleanse or lemonade diet), but I've never been able to do it for over 5 days in a row. It always makes me feel great though!

dh did the master cleanser for 20 (or was it 30?) days 2 or 3 times. He has also done Dr. Natura's Colonix which allows you to eat while you do the program. He is also a big fan of the veggie juice diet. I'm considering doing the Colonix program once I'm done nursing. But since I've never had any digestive, or even health problems, really, I'm not all that motivated to do it, kwim?

Is the lemon one the one with the recipe that has lemons, maple syrup and cayenne pepper? I did that one, maybe it's a variation of the master cleanse. I did it for the 30 days then just added juice slowly into my body then solids eventually. I'd love to do it again but not sure if it's recommended while nursing? I don't think the calorie intake is quite enough for a nursing mom.[/b]
No, the book specifically states not to do the program when pregnant or nursing. Yes, that is the master cleanser. Be wary about doing it too often tho as the lemons tend to wipe out the healthy flora in your intestines like antibiotics do. For a while there my dh was having health problems and doing it for, like, a week once every 3 or 4 months and he ended up with a fungal rash all over his body that 2 years later, he is still fighting.

I haven't tried any cleanses since I got preggers, but as soon as I'm done nursing (whenever that may be) I plan on doing a major one. I like the master cleanse but am looking for something different. I don't think that one is really for me, although I do love the way the lemonade tastes.
