Thread: Master Cleanse

  1. #1

    Default Master Cleanse

    Hello,

    I am about to start a new exercise regime and a friend suggested that before I start I should going on the Master Cleanse for 10 days to remove toxins. Has anyone on the forum done the Master Cleanse? If so did it help or hurt? I already eat organic and pretty healthy.

    Thanks,
    INFJGirlie

    I imagine drinking water and pissing accomplishes basically the same thing. We have organs designed for this purpose.

    If you like pissing out of your ass go for it, though.

    I looked into this quite a bit when a friend raved about it, and I learned that it's basically a scam. The supplements they give you create the, uh, "leavings" that so impress people and make them think they're being cleaned out.

    Detox programs are scams.

    The body does a very fine job of keeping itself in order provided you eat well, which you already do.

    When I was in college I knew some guys who took Magnesium Citrate for fun. It basically does the same thing, and I assure you that, while funny, it did not seem anywhere near an enjoyable experience.

    It depends on what the program is claiming to accomplish. But here's a wiki link that in turn links to proper sources such as the times and the mayo clinic:

    Well, it's probably a good idea to clean out your digestive system.

    On the other hand, I've seen ridiculous shit saying that people have headaches on "cleansing" programs because toxins are coming out of your body. The truth is that you're having headaches because you're starving.

    And probably some of this

    Just reverse osmosis your water and buy some iodine pills or something, that would help more.
