My Journey into The Master Cleanse: Day 5


If you haven’t read My Journey into The Master Cleanse (Day 1 of 10) I suggest you read it, as this is a followup entry. It will give background info on what I am doing.

The Net Effect for the 5th Day

At last, I’m finally beginning to notice toxins coming out of the cells of my mouth. Basically, this means your mouth feels or tastes strange.

3 bits on My Journey into The Master Cleanse: Day 5

  1. Day 5 was awesome! Just left a Christmas party and did not eat or drink! Cannot wait until Day 6

  2. Jaron! Terrific to hear from you again. You’re the first person to start commenting on every article in this series, and I’m very much enjoying following along with your progress!

    Yes, I’d imagine that doing this cleanse is extra-challenging during the holidays, but it sounds like you’re keeping your spirits high. And really, once you get in the swing of things around day 4 or 5, it isn’t so hard is it?

    As always, let me know if there’s anything I can do to help.
    Godspeed to you!
