• Salt water flush first thing in the morning on empty stomach.
  • Lemonade (fresh lemons, maple syrup, purified water and cayenne pepper).
  • Mint tea and water.
  • Herbal laxative before bed.


ME = SCIATICA FLARE… My resting/sitting and choosing to not to regularly exercise and stretch a 2021 back injury LONG BEFORE the cleanse caused me to pinch that nerve again. I had to coat my stomach with collagen and take some pain killers to function. TECHNICALLY, because pain killers have to be processed by the liver and collagen gave the intestines something to digest… The cleanse is now broken.

HUSBAND = Headaches gone (((YAY))) but tongue extremely pale. Like anemic pale.

In some cases, a pale tongue might be white or appear to have a white coating on it. When the tongue is white, it is usually because the mouth is dry and the papillae may become enlarged and can trap bacteria and other debris on it. Dry mouth can occasionally cause the tongue to be white.

Internet source

Causes of papillae hypertrophy or inflammation include, for example:

  1. Poor oral hygiene
  2. Dry mouth
  3. Dehydration
  4. Smoking or other oral tobacco use
  5. Alcohol use (excessive)
  6. Mouth breathing
  7. Low roughage diet (eating mostly soft or mashed foods)
  8. Mechanical irritation from sharp tooth edges or dental appliances
  9. Fever

Dehydration, even with the amount of fluids consumed, COULD BE POSSIBLE. We have a hot tub and he has been spending more time in it because of his headache… LOW ROUGHAGE is a GIVEN during this cleanse… HOWEVER, I am concerned enough about it that he too got a dose of collagen and some additional maple syrup added to his water.

I am doing a lot of research because of the questions we are finding, mainly… Have we lost all ground by not doing the cleanse for a full ten days? The book is adamant about maintaining the 10 days and lightly discusses what happens with the blood at days 7, 14, 21… If one makes it that far. NO STRONG ARGUMENT FOR THE 10 DAY REQUIREMENT IMO. I found another master cleanse blog with a section FULL of Q&A and saw a simple and clear explanation;

I’m a big fan of doing a “mini cleanse” so yes it will help with weight loss and detoxing, but to really get the hardened waste out of your body you’ll need to do the 10 days.

AT DAY 6 I AM STILL flushing hardened waste out of my system. My husband was clear (evidence in watery yellow movements) by day 3. Historically, my husband has never had an issue in that regard whereas I, with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, have regularly struggled with constipation in my adult life. At any rate, the detox will continue but the cleanse is broken. We will begin easing back into solid foods on Day 8.
