How to Colon Cleanse Using Lemon Water

The lemon cleanse is a natural way to remove toxins from your system, clean your colon and shed a few pounds. Also known as the master cleanse, the lemon water fast is known to alkalize the system, improve skin tone, increase energy and contribute to an overall feeling of health.

The recipe for the colon cleansing lemon water fast is easy, but it does take personal resolve to stick with it. If you stick with it the results will prove to be worth while.

Things You'll Need
  • Fresh lemons (preferably organic)
  • Filtered water
  • Maple syrup (preferably organic)
  • Powdered cayenne pepper
Pour the juice of half of a lemon (approximately 2 tbsp) into a 10 oz glass of filtered water. Add 2 tbsp of maple syrup along with a pinch of cayenne pepper to the water and stir thoroughly.

Drink the lemon mixture in one sitting if possible. It's not necessary to chug it down, but don't sip the mixture over a period of hours.

Repeat the process throughout the day until you have consumed at least 60 oz of lemon water. Try to evenly distribute the lemon water glasses throughout the day. Since the lemon mixture is the only source of nutrition, space it out over several hours. Additionally, spacing it out allows each dose to work its magic in cleaning your colon.

Slowly reintroduce foods when the fast is over. Whether you used the lemon cleanse for 3 days or 30 days, you must take your time to reintroduce foods. The first day after completing the cleanse add juice to your diet.

Introduce salads and vegetables on day two after the lemon cleanse. Allow your system to slowly adjust to the transition from all liquids to solids. Introducing too much too quickly can cause stomach pain and discomfort.
