Famous Detox Lemonade

Famous Detox Lemonade

There is no doubt that we live in a toxic world and sometimes our bodies need some help coping with big exposures such as when the neighbor uses a lot of herbicides on their lawn. Here is a famous detox remedy for times when you know that you are chemically overloaded. It is bittersweet with some spice.

Considered the “Master Cleanse” drink, it reportedly helps your body to heal itself.

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about the equivalent of the juice of one lemon)
1/6th of a teaspoon (or a pinch) of cayenne
1 to 2 teaspoons maple syrup
10 oz. filtered water

Combine ingredients in a glass, stir to blend, and drink. Drink a glass for four-five days in a row for best results.

Note: If you choose to drink this while fasting please consult your doctor.

Good recipe! (for Carol P. - the options for someone who doesn't like maple syrup? - Agave syrup, and it now comes in a darker version.)
Many people think that Cayenne can hurt or damage ulcers, but it actually kills bacteria that causes most ulcers (of course if you have an ulcer, avoid vinegar with your Cayenne). Plus it's a good general tonic and boosting immunity - as is lemon juice (fresh)...
Thank you!

I will be doing this tomorrow morning! I live in a city where I feel it is "over polluted" (if there is such a thing!) and I am always looking for ways to "detox". But, I am wondering if this is o.k for children to drink as well?
