People who are very sick, or otherwise very toxic, need this kind of detoxification protocol, but most don’t, and most cannot afford to spend hundreds, or even thousands of dollars on supplements for detox.
The good news is that with the right habits, you can detoxify all the time without doing a “detox” that takes up all of your time, energy, and money. The trick to detoxifying without fasting is to eat foods that help you to detoxify the body and to drink plenty of water. Even better than water, here’s a recipe to kick off your detoxification protocol.
Cranberry Detox Lemonade Recipe
- Glass jar
- Safe, clean, spring water or distilled water
- 1 cup of unsweetened, organic cranberry juice, not from concentrate
- 3 organic fresh lemons
- A citrus juicer
- Liquid stevia
- Liquid cayenne
Fill the jar to about 85% capacity with spring water (or distilled water). Squeeze the lemons and pour the juice into the water. Add cranberry juice. Add stevia to taste and then add cayenne to taste.
If you don’t have access to a good source for spring water, use other clean, drinking water that does not contain fluoride. If you don’t have access to organic lemons, use conventional. Fresh is best. If there are no fresh lemons, use organic bottled lemon juice.
If you can’t get cranberry juice that is not from concentrate, get the reconstituted kind. If you can’t stand cayenne, don’t use it. No glass jar? Use plastic. Try whole cranberries instead of juicing them.
You can also throw in some of the organic lemon peels, as much as you can stand to taste. It’s pretty sour, but it has lots of benefits. If you have powdered cayenne and/or powdered stevia, use a blender to mix some of the liquid with the powders so they don’t settle later.
The lemon juice will help flush the liver. The cranberry juice will help flush the kidneys. If you drink a lot of it, every day, you will feel an amazing difference in your health and vitality. This recipe is a far better choice for most people than the Master Cleanse.
