I have done The Master Cleanse and it was great until all the Sugar in the maple syrup instigated a nasty yeast infection, so I had to stop. I am currently considering other fasts to clear out my body and improve my energy.
Here are some factors which I must consider when choosing a fast (in no particular order):
--I am apparently inundated with yeast and therefore avoiding sugars of all types would probably be best.
--I am a schoolteacher and therefore not able to juice all day. My juicer is pretty cheap ($30 Walmart special), and it would be best if I made juice morning or afternoon after I get off work. In other words, juicing is inconvenient at this point, but would be fine during a school holiday.
--For work, I need something like the ease of the Master-Cleanse and have been wondering about using one of those green superfood powders that are mixed with water as a healthy subsitute for juice.
--I think probably that during school, a water fast, which seems to be very powerful, is probably not in my best interest as I CANNOT take off work everytime I get a headache.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Could I just do a "green superfood" fast? With maybe a little lemon water thrown in to help the "natural effects"? Maybe I could also do prune juice (if the sugars in it wouldn't kill me)?
