How to make the Lemon Detox drink

As part of the Lemon Detox Diet program, the Lemon Detox drink is consumed. The drink consists of the Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup™, fresh lemon juice, cayenne pepper and pure water.

Lemon Detox Drink Mixing Instructions:

For a 2 Litre batch (preferred)

140ml of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup™
3 ½ freshly squeezed lemons (about 140ml)
2 - 3 pinches of the Cayenne Pepper
Approximately 1700ml of fresh or filtered water

Per Glass

One tablespoon (or 20 ml) of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup™.
One tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice (about half a lemon).
Half a pinch of cayenne pepper (adjust to taste).
At least 250ml of fresh or filtered water.

* You may drink the Lemon Detox drink cold, room temperature or warm
* After opening keep the Madal Bal tin refrigerated.

How much to drink?
Full Body Cleanse Drink as much as you like. Ideally 2 litres (6 to 9 glasses) a day or whenever you feel hungry. People who are very physically active whilst on the program may increase their daily intake or add more syrup to the mix.
Relaxed Version 2-3 glasses for breakfast and again for dinner. Have a healthy lunch.
50:50 Version 2 litres on first 3 days, 2-3 glasses for breakfast and again for dinner on the next 3days, and 2 litres on the last 3 days.

Remember that the Lemon Detox drink is liquid food. The detox drink helps support the body during the cleanse by feeding your body with energy from the natural carbohydrate content in the syrup.

Fluid intake is the key to the program. The detox drink will satisfy your hunger and give you energy

What else should I have on the Lemon Detox cleanse?

Full Body Cleanse:
For optimum results we recommend that you do not eat any solid foods on this program. We recommend you drink at least 1-2 litres of water in addition to the Lemon Detox drinks. Drink the laxative(senna) tea in the evening and the sea salt water or senna tea drink in the morning.

Relaxed Version:
The 'relaxed' version allows you to have a healthy lunch during the day. We recommend you drink at least 1-2 litres of water in addition to the Lemon Detox drinks. Drink the laxative(senna) tea in the evening and the sea salt water or senna tea drink in the morning.

50:50 Version:
As the 50:50 version is a combination of the Full Body Cleanse and the Relaxed Version, please refer to above.

If you feel the need for variety, then once or twice a day you can drink a cup of herb tea or freshly squeezed citrus juice (orange or grapefruit). Peppermint, rosehip and chamomile teas are useful complements to the Lemon Detox programs and make a nice contrast. Peppermint tea especially supports the cleansing process, cleanses the palate and neutralizes any mouth or body odours that may arise. Teas and juices should only be sweetened with the Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup™, if at all, and do not use or add any dairy products

Why the Full Body Cleanse version is the best way to detox?

The single most important part of a detox program is not eating solid food. Some people worry at the prospect of going without solid foods, yet such fears are groundless. Not eating may sound daunting, but it is much easier than you think. The Lemon Detox cleanse is a based on consuming liquid food. It is not a fast. A true fast is complete abstinence from food of any kind. The Lemon Detox drink, however, is a liquid food, energising the body while you take a break from solid food.

It is very important not to burden the body with solid food during the Lemon Detox program, as it hinders the cleansing process and reduces its effectiveness. Most detox diets that promise an internal cleanse whilst still consuming food will not do as well as complete abstinence from food. Here's why:

Food contains chemicals and additives, so consuming it will add more toxins during a fast. This hinders your ability to release the accumulated toxic build-up present in your body.

Eating requires a lot of energy to digest, assimilate, and eliminate. This is energy intensive, and your body is not able to rest and restore. When you stop eating, your whole body is at rest. This is when the body allows itself to restore balance. In short, your body becomes rejuvenated.

Although the relaxed version incorporates eating a healthy meal per day, it is only a minimal consumption of food and will not dramatically hinder the detox program, compared to detox diets that require constant consumption of solid foods.

The cleansing, weight loss and other claimed health benefits occur as a result of undertaking the whole Lemon Detox Diet program. The food products will provide nutrients for nourishment while undertaking the Lemon Detox Diet program. The Madal Bal Tree Syrup, bee pollen or other food products sold in conjunction with the Lemon Detox Diet program do not, when consumed by themselves, make you lose weight and do not provide any health benefits.
