The science behind detoxes and why you should detox: six benefits of detoxing

Why should you detox? Your body functions best when it periodically cleanses (detoxes) itself of accumulated toxins and free radicals that lead to inflammation, body aches, impairment and disease, and contribute to the aging process.

5 tips to stick to your detox

1. Select a sensible program.

A sensible program doesn’t require starvation, suspicious foods, or rare kitchen equipment. The more difficult the regimen, the more concerted effort it will take for you to maintain the program–and the less likely you will complete it.

Feel free to post comments, questions or personal  experiences here on the blog as well as on our Facebook page. I will personally monitor both sites on a daily basis, as I do the Master Cleanse along with you, and respond to the best of my ability.

I am sharing some of the common detox symptoms from Peter Glickman’s website at the bottom of this post, as he does an amazing job in both his book and his website in preparing individuals for this fast.

Below are some of my personal insights, along with information and feedback from others who have done the fast.   I’d also recommend doing a search on the subject for “Master Cleanse Journals” – when I was first contemplating doing the cleanse, I learned a lot from reading a few online day-to-day journals.
