Master Cleanse: Allows 60 oz. of a homemade lemonade beverage made of lemon Juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, and water. No solid foods allowed.

Detox Diet: Most detoxes only allow fruit and vegetable juices and water. No solid foods allowed. Some detoxes allow fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, no other solid foods. Few detoxes are a little less strict, allowing whole grains and flaxseed.

The body naturally detoxifies itself daily. The liver and kidneys process toxins and eliminates them through perspiration and waste.

The colon’s natural microorganisms detoxify food wastes.
