The first thing I did was use a radical method called the Master Cleanser Diet, developed by alternative health practitioner Stanley Burroughs (1903 – 1991). This is an all liquid diet you prepare yourself every couple of days and it is recommended that you stay on the diet for anywhere between 10 – 40 straight days. This is a very radical solution for a very radical problem, my non-functioning liver.
Using The Master Cleanser diet is a fast, but not a complete fast, because while using it, you drink up to 1,300 calories per day in the form of sugars from the ingredients in the beverage. Dr. Burroughs believed that his Master Cleanser diet would cure any disease and correct all disorders. After reading Dr. Burroughs book, it seemed to me to be a diet that might help me to kick-start my liver. I don’t do diets well so I wasn’t sure if I could even follow through with it, but I was willing to give it a try. Radical dis-functions require radical methods of attack!
This all liquid diet is an ease to the liver, because the liver has to do a LOT less work with a liquid diet. This book was developed in 1940 as a stomach ulcer cure by Dr. Burroughs. By 1976 Dr. Burroughs presented his book as healing not only ulcers, but for every kind of disease, including obesity.
I did the diet for 20 straight days, initially drinking up to 12- 8 ounce glasses per day, until about the 4th day, at which point my amount of intake dropped to about 8 to 6 – 8 ounce glasses per day. I thought I couldn’t do it but I found I could when I was faced with dying of liver dis-function! Believe me. I lost 20 pounds while on the diet, my liver no longer felt like a separate part of me, and when I went back to the doctor on the 30th day and he checked my liver function, I’d actually kick-started it into functioning again!
It was amazing and started me on my quest for natural remedies for Hep C!
I just started doing this blogging stuff, so am still writing about all the things I’ve learned to do to help my liver and keep my Hep C in control. I’m very excited to be able to share them with you. In my next post I’ll give you the recipe for the Master Cleanser Diet from Stanley Burroughs.
I wish you the greatest success!
