We have all heard the stories of people doing the Master Cleanse successfully for various health conditions and weight loss, but what about our mental and emotional well-being? This is very often overlooked by most people because it does not seem like an obvious thing that the cleanse would have such a powerful effect on. The mind, not being a tangible physical result that can be seen or felt, is often not the type of results people talk about and share.
Last night, I received an email from a member of the Master Cleanse Movement. She was writing to me about her mother who had participated in a previous round of my Master Cleanse Groups that I lead, and here is what she wrote to me.
“My 80 year old Mom who had really bad dementia before the cleanse, is now doing great!! She is adding and subtracting numbers in her head when we play card games and making decisions with confidence!! Her blood sugars are staying good and we have been off the cleanse for almost 2 weeks. She is walking outside and trying to do some weeding in the garden.”
This, of course, is not the first time I have heard such stories and I have seen many dramatic changes in people's cognitive abilities. One such example was a young woman in her 20’s who functioned at about a 7 year old level and she did 30 days of the Master Cleanse in a row (her older sister did as well with her.) On the 30th day she came to see me for a Vita-Flex treatment and she was speaking to me at a much higher level of awareness, I would say about a 14 year old. When I asked how things were in her life now, she replied “Oh, things are very different!” We then talked for some time about how she was thinking differently and perceiving the world in a whole new way.
I have also had students do the Master Cleanse while attending school and they have reported that they do better in school and find that their mind is more clear and focused and learning is easier. My own experience was quite obvious to me when I was writing my first book. While I was on the Master Cleanse, I wrote significantly faster and my trains of thought were easier to manage and stay focused. Wayne Dyer had a similar experience on his first cleanse. When I came to see him on his 21st day of the cleanse, he said he had written 17 pages by 10 am. At the time, he thought he would not have been able to start his book for another few weeks because of his poor health before he had gone on the Master Cleanse.
Many other people report to me that they have become more spiritually aware and have begun to explore spirituality in a whole new way or some others for the very first time. I believe as we get healthier and happier, we open up to our spiritual side and we start to ask ourselves deeper questions. Who am I? What is my purpose in life? What can I do to improve and help the planet? There are of course many questions in this area that we might have a curiosity about.
The Master Cleanse has the potential to have a much greater impact not just on our physical health, but our emotional and mental wellbeing, as well as our spiritual growth and development. This new awareness leads to thinking more about our environment and the health of the whole planet, because this is our home. It is our only home and we need to become good caretakers of it.
