Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with the master cleanse and if i would benefit from it? I have never done such thing in the past nor have done IF.
Paleohackers tend to frown on these cleansing/detox products for two reasons:
1. No evolutionary basis - cave man don't do cleanse!
2. No scientific support for detox theory (we put it in the woo bucket).
Many people swear by things like homeopathy, chinese medicine, alkaline water and scientology. It's just that the effects of these things are never better than a placebo. Placebo's are about 30% effective, which ain't too bad.
Should you do it? Do it if you want to - or save your money and buy some salmon.
The words cleanse and detox have been hijacked by many pseudo health practitioners.
The are perfectly valid ways to 'cleanse' the body which are verified by peer reviewed studies published in reputable scientific journals. For instance you can cleanse the body of heavy metals by taking supplements such as zeolite which binds to heavy metals. You could also take activated charcoal which binds to mycotoxins, then you will excrete them out. This is detoxification.
But beware there are many BS protocols out there.
I don't think you will do much detoxing/ cleansing in two days.
i did the master cleanse once. can't remember how many days i lasted- i think it was about 6 days. i started to add other juices the last few days because the lemonade mix was really boring. i only did it because i needed bowel rest from my ulcerative colitis. i would NEVER do it if i was feeling fine and healthy.
I have IBS, whenevr symptoms are coming back I usually try to fast for almost a day or do IF for a couple of days so that my bowles get a chance to rest a little. It actually helps so I totally understand you but probably you don't need any weird stuff as samc said. Just try out a short fast.
