Lemon Detoxification Diet Recipe
One of the easiest detoxification recipes to make is a lemon drink for replacement of all solid foods for a period of up to a week or even two. You could also simply substitute a meal or two each day with the lemon beverage if you prefer. This drink is created by adding two tablespoons of brown rice syrup along with two tablespoons of fresh lemon juice to a glass full of water. You may add a dash of fresh grated ginger for taste and to help your digestive system function. Use in place of solid food whenever hunger strikes.
Fresh Fruit Detoxification Recipes
Fresh fruit like bananas, apples and strawberries can be used to whip up satisfying detoxification salads. You can use strawberries, lemon zest, extra soft tofu, and honey to make a delightful dessert.The apple detoxification diet advises three days of eating only apples and applesauce, and drinking apple juice and cider. Fruit is a great way of cleansing the body and bringing wellness and vitality to your life.Prior to having a new detoxification recipe, you should spend, at the minimum, seven days eating a light nutritional fare for cleansing your colon and readying your body for the more dynamic detoxification recipes. This includes avoiding junk foods, and maintaining the healthy diet for a full week. Look for detoxification recipes which include only wholesome ingredients like fresh fruits and vegetables, extra-virgin olive oil, unsalted nuts and seeds, and herbal teas.

Also known as the lemon cleanse, this is by far the most popular homemade colon cleansing recipe. It involves abstaining from food and consuming only the lemon, cayenne and maple syrup drink and also a laxative tea each night and 1 litre of salt water in the morning. This cleanse has the benefit of resting all the organs and eliminating many toxins including mucous plaque. The cayenne pepper is responsible for breaking up the mucus. Like most of the homemade cleanse recipes, there is no fixed time taken for the cleanse, but it recommended to continue cleansing until the tongue is clean. Toxins will be eliminated from many parts of the body, and a white tongue is a sure sign that toxin are still coming out. For first time cleansers 30 days may be a good time to cleanse, although it may be longer than many people can handle or afford the time.
GreenPapaya Tropical Cleanse
The papaya, contains a very powerful enzyme called papain which is capable of dissolving hardened mucous and removing toxins. Hardened mucus, also known as mucoid plaque is the predominant reason people get parasites in the bowel and cannot absorb food and nutrients properly. The bowel excretes mucous to protect itself from wrong eating, and if this continues for a long time, the mucous becomes hard and inhibits nutrient absorption and provides a breeding ground for the parasites. The enzyme papain is abundant in green papaya (or unripe papaya). The reason the enzyme is so powerful is that it breaks down proteins, starches and fats in any PH medium, unlike the body’s own enzymes which only work in a specific PH environment. This gives papain the ability to travel through the body breaking down toxic molecules.To perform the Green Papaya Tropical Cleanse a person should blend a small amount (around 200 grams) of green papaya with other fruits and some water in the blender and drink. It is best to drink it first thing in the morning and also throughout the day. It is also useful to eat mostly, or only alkaline forming foods, as this will assist the cleansing process. The person may also take a psyllium shake twice a day and a herbal laxative such as senna to assist the cleansing process.

Perhaps the most powerful method to cleanse the body, but also the most difficult, is water fasting. This is where the person completely abstains from putting anything into their mouth except purified water. This kind of fasting is only recommended for the most serious and experienced cleansers as it can be dangerous. While performing water fasting it is recommended to:
§ get plenty of rest
§ drink plenty of water
§ abstain from all foods and juices
§ perform a few enemas in the beginning, and possibly each day, if you want.
§ avoid sex
§ avoid unnecessary talking
§ and in general conserve ones energy
Juice fasting another very popular method of cleansing the colon, it involves only drinking freshly pressed fruit and vegetables for a period of time. Apple, mango, pineapple and papaya juices are especially good for this regime as they contain enzymes which can help to detoxify the body and dissolve mucoid plaque. Juice fasting can be difficult though for first time cleansers, and we would recommend using a proper colon cleansing kit. Experienced cleansers can have great success on the juice fast though, as it is a little less extreme than pure water fasting, yet still cleanses the body well because it contains no solid food.
