Fasting for days, or even weeks, while drinking a lemonade-like blend of clear spring water, cayenne pepper and citrus juice has proven to be a safe, simple and yet powerful way to cleanse the body of toxins. This book goes beyond basic information on how to do the cleanse[which can be learned in minutes[by guiding readers step by step through the entire cleansing process. ...more

I had heard so much about this cleanse and I wanted to see what all the hype was about. The book definitely confirmed the benefits of doing a detox regularly to give your digestive system a rest and to flush out toxins. I also was glad to have the details explained in much detail because it clarified the "why" behind many of the steps and ingredient (e.g., why you had to drink within minutes of squeezing the lemons and the importance of the 3 day ease out period). Rob and I agreed to do 8 days o ...more

I know two fairly sane people who've had great experiences from doing the cleanse - so great, in fact, that they've done it more than once, or soon shall. So I figured I'd give it a shot myself.

UPDATE: Finished the cleanse. It was neither overly detrimental nor beneficial. I guess everyone's experience is different. In any case, I don't think I'll do it again anytime soon.

I've met the author, and although he comes on just as strong in writing as he does in person, I found the book very clear, helpful and quite enjoyable.

I've done the master cleanse twice using Burrough's original instructions in Healing for the Age of Enlightenment as a guide, but reading this has inspired me to want to do one again. I also like some of the alternatives presented here, like papaya or pineapple instead of orange juice for coming off the cleanse.

I'd recommend the cleanse - and this

After I complete the cleanse I will write a review. So this is more than a book. Easy to read.
After the cleanse I noticed I lost almost 15 pounds but I kept losing and have more energy. My little depressions disappeared. I neither recommend nor do I not recommend. This is a personal decision. Follow the book and go organic with the lemons. Un-iodized sea salt. A mason quart jar is good for the salt wash. I will do this 4 times a year.

Very practical book teaching how and why to do a colon cleanse.
FYI: The majority of our seratonin is created in the colon, not the brain. Seratonin is one of our body's natural chemicals that helps against depression.
One criticism of the book: I wish it had a chapter on the integration of doing a cleanse for spiritual reasons. I found many other books to be of help though.

Really nice book. Well written. The Master Clean chapters are really detailed about how to understand your body and what is happening with it. I like it. Finished my first 10 Days Master Cleanse yesterday and I'm on day after learning how to eat "normal" again. After my experience I can tell you that the method worked for me.

Interesting, Informative, Fast Read. I probably will go on master cleanse to detox, but not in the near-future. I'll definitely buy the book to keep as a reference though. Would I recommend it to my friends, to some "Yes" I would.

An informative and engaging book on the Master Cleanse, which is a 10-day detoxification process. Definitely planning to give this a shot sometime soon, and am glad I read through the whole book. It is well-written and very inspiring. I remain skeptical but open-minded regardless.

From Kiel M.: The Complete Master cleanse explains everything you need to know about doing a master cleanse. It is a step by step guide to better health. Instead of eating, you replace meals with a lemonade mix six to twelve times a day.
i don't know how I feel about this book. i want to do the cleanse, but I also want to hear more peoples stories who have completed it. I also want to know what alternatives there are out there...

a little hippie-esque for me....but gave me some great ideas for future science experiments ( I am such a nerd) and a lot of info on some health things.

While he comes off a little weirdly preachy it is a good motivational book to try the master cleanse I plan on giving it a whirl myself sometimes soon.
Not what I expected.

A fairly dangerous cleanse. I think the smoothie cleanse I got on Amazon where you can actually eat raw fruits and veggies with it may be a better option

Doing my prep work before I begin my cleanse. Very informative. I don't feel so nervous about trying to do this cleanse now. Know I can do it!

This book is a great for anyone doing the MC. It gives must needed info important for getting the most out of it.
Interesting points about parasites. I also liked the affirmation/visualization chapter. Looking forward to my 2nd master cleanse!
