DIET by Stanley Burroughs
Stanley Burroughss "Master Cleanser" text, also known as the Lemonade
Diet, was originally intended as a new and more effective method to
treat ulcers. A pioneer of alternative medicine, Stanley Burroughs is
also known for his other classic alternative medical text, Healing for
the Age of Enlightenment.
Burroughs developed the lemonade juice diet as a liquid mono-diet that
produces a detoxifying and cleansing effect to the body. Based on his
medical observations, Burroughs saw that the lemonade diet aids the
stimulation of healthy tissue growth.
The Lemonade Diet is a dietary program that should be followed for at

powerful mucous cleanser. Cayenne pepper also breaks up mucous and acts
as a cleanser for the digestive, respiratory, and circulatory systems.

their mucus and allergy diseases.
Diseases that are a result of calcium deposits in the joints, muscles,
cells and glands are readily dissolved and removed from the body.
Cholesterol deposits in the arteries and veins also respond to the magic
cleansing power of the lemonade diet.
All skin disorders also disappear as the rest of the body is cleansed.
Boils, abscesses, carbuncles, and pimples all come under this category.
These conditions are, again, Nature's effort to eliminate poisons
quickly from the body.
All types of infections are the result of these vast accumulations of
poisons being dissolved and burned or oxidized to produce further
cleansing of the body. Therefore, rapid elimination of the toxins
relieves the need for infectious fevers of all kinds. Infections are not
"caught," they are created by Nature to assist in burning our surplus
