MC, Parasite, and Liver Cleanse overlap?
« on: May 07, 2007, 01:51:20 PM »
Hello,

I've noticed that several folks here have done the Master Cleanse and other cleanses. I've been doing the Master Cleanse each Spring for a few years now, and will be finishing this year's in a four days. I want to followup with a liver and parasite cleanse over the next month. I figure since it's already going to have been 11 days of just lemonade... I might as well get some other spring cleaning done too... but  there's so much varied info about other cleanses that i don't know what to take or what order to do it in.

Before the questions...from the point where I started... here's I what have in mind:
  • 3 days mostly juice
  • 11-12 days Master Cleanse + taking Intestinal Supplement containing 1050mg/day blend of wormwood, black walnut hull, and clove. (I'm in the 8th day of this right now)
  • 1 day of just orange juice - begin taking probiotics and Yeast Assasin
  • 2-3 days preparing for liver flush by drinking lots of apple juice with a little bit of homemade soup or soft raw foods. Continue taking probiotic and YA
  • 1 day to begin liver gall stone flush
  • 1 day to rest and allow for results of liver flush; drink juices and maybe soup; take probiotics in the afternoon
  • Continue taking probiotic and YA till supply is gone; re-enter into the world of normal food via juices, raw foods, and home-made soup for a week.
  • Remain vegan, unprocessed and sugar-free for at least the following 2 weeks. Food ideas include juices, pumpkin seeds, coconut oil, greens and garlic, fruit, softened figs, Mung Dahl, sprouts, nuts, fruit, veggies, and herbal tea.

I actually just edited my questions down... because I feel like I can figure out some of the basic things... but I still have a few questions:

Yeast Assassin (YA) / Parasite Cleansing:
Does YA cleanse really thoroughly for parasites  as well as yeast? How does YA compare to a specific Parasite Cleanser like "Parasitin+"? (again, I've already been taking a supplement containing wormwood leaf, black walnut hull, sweet wormwood leaf, and clove flower bud during the MC). If necessary- I'd like to take both Yeast Assassin and another Parasite Cleanser with things like Kamala Powder in it. Would YA and Parasitin+ interact alright together? Is that "overkill?"

What should I do first?:
I want to take the following supplements and do a liver cleanse:
  • Yeast Assassin and/or another Parasite cleanser
  • A Liver Support supplement that I already have (containing Dandelion plant, Artichoke leaf, Beet root, Milk Thistle seed, Tumeric rhizome extract, + Goldenseal)
  • Probiotics
I have 2 different theories:
1: Do the liver cleanse now, I just master cleansed and used wormwood and walnut and clove. It would be nice to do the liver flush right after the MC since I'm already in intense detoxification. Then I can cleanse for Parasites with YA (and parasitin+?), do liver maintenance with my support supplement, and be very mindful of my diet for the next month.
vs:
2: My fears with idea #1 are that a bunch of parasites, etc. may die and remain stuck in my liver and intestines if I'm just taking YA and not cleansing everything out afterward. Also- is 3 supplements + probiotics too many things to take at once... would they possibly negate each other? The #2 option would be to focus on YA and parasite cleansing for the next 20-30 days, and then to do a liver cleanse/flush later on.

I would prefer to do idea #1 and just get it all done at once. Maybe there is no right answer.... but let me know if you have some informed input. I've never done a liver or parasite cleanse before, and if I'm going to do these- I'd like to do them as effectively and thoroughly as possible.

Thank you for your time and care!
-Jess

The one thing that really stood out to me is that one of your supplements contains goldenseal. Goldenseal lowers blood sugar so wouldn't be a good idea during fasts/cleanses when your blood sugar tends to be low already. Also, what is your reason for using goldenseal? I ask not to criticize but because goldenseal has been over harvested so it's preferable to use another herb if possible & save goldenseal for times when it is the best choice to use.   Just my .02.

Thanks for your concern- the Goldenseal is the last ingredient in a proprietary blend of my "liver support" supplement. I haven't used this yet... so if it lowers blood sugar- I'll be sure to take that one after the fasting is over with- when I'm getting appropriate nutrition from fruits and vegetables.

Actually, although the sugars in fruits & veggies will raise blood sugar it will quickly fall again. Eating adequate protein is the key to keeping blood sugar stable. A lot of people don't realize this but it's true. A herbal formula for liver support IS a good idea, just not one with goldenseal taken while fasting/cleansing. HTH Blessings ~herbalmom

Ok,
I'm done with the Master Cleanse... yay!!!
I've been reading the boards quite a bit... and asked some people- and am having trouble finding any conclusive advice about what cleanse to do first... so I want to start drinking some apple juice tomorrow night to start prepping for a liver cleanse as followup.

So would anyone say that you should definitely NOT do a yeast/parasite cleanse simultaneously with  the Master Cleanse? Other than what herbalmom mentioned about the goldenseal and blood sugar, do you think it would be safe/effective to do cleanses together?

My dh agreed to do the MC with me and start this week and I didn't want to tell him to wait because I was surprised/thrilled he agreed in the first place.

Thanks and Happy New Year Everyone!

There's alot of comment on parasites causing problems on attempted liver flushes...I can see Jess how you would want to get it over with.
Hard to say exactly what I personally would choose, but most likely I would do a month or more of a careful nutritive diet and a parasite cleanse and then do a 3 day fast on no fat, fresh apple juice ( malic or citric acid helps soften gallbladder stones and liver sludge) and raw veggies and then the liver cleanse.
