The three-day cleansing fast

from the July 2004 Star Beacon

by Marty Ulrich (Mau)

     Before you begin, gather the following items:

  • One bottle of 100 percent pure maple syrup. The darker the better. Youíll want to find organic Grade B if you can, just as long as itís the real thing.
  • 6 to 10 fresh lemons. Fresh-picked over store-bought, but get what you can. A juicer would be good too, since you will be squeezing the juice out.
  • Small jar of crushed cayenne pepper.

  • One box of Traditional Medicinals "Smooth Move" herbal laxative

  • One box of peppermint tea
     Thatís it. Costs a little over $20 if you donít have any of it.

     During the fast you will drink a tea-nectar made from the above ingredients.

     For every 10 ounces of tea, mix:

  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup

  • Half a lemonís juice

  • 1/10 teaspoon of cayenne

     This is the same for both types of tea.

     Enjoy one more meal the night before your fast. Mark the time you stopped eating. Get some rest and first thing in the morning make some Smooth Move tea and drink it. Each day of the fast, take the Smooth Move first thing in the morning and right before bed. You can start the night before the fast if you want, but I waited till the following morning to get all the ingredients.

     When you drink the Smooth Move, that is exactly what will happen. You will move and it will be more than smooth. It will be liquid. Bowel movements are important during the fast. You should have at least two movements per day, if not more.

     During the time in between, make a large quantity (about a quart or so) of peppermint tea with the same proportions of the ingredients and drink it any time you feel hungry throughout the day. Half a quart to a quart should last you all day. Donít chug it all at once. Be sure to drink an equal amount of water. This is all you get for three days. Enjoy. The tea is actually really good. Has a fizzy flavor from the cayenne.

     This is all you have to do. Itís really quite simple, yet it is a challenge of willpower. I wanted to give up the first day as did many of my friends whoíve tried it. The Smooth Move may make you feel ill or cramp up your stomach as it did mine. This is your body taking out the trash.

     But the second day you will begin to feel really good. You will have more energy than you think and your mind will be clear. Persevere through 72 hours and your first bite of food will taste so good, itíll all be worthwhile. Make sure your first meal is light, like a salad or some soup. Good luck.
