The Lemon Detox Diet (Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup) consists of four different South East Asian palm syrups and prime quality Canadian grade maple syrup.
The saps are harvested without harming the trees and with total care for the environment. They are blended to a specific formula and then put into tins. No preservatives are added and no chemical processes are applied.
The Lemon Detox Diet (Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup) was formulated in the eighties for a Swiss Health Company. It was created by a specialist team led by Dr. K.A. Beyer (psychologist), Dr. Meywald (GP & Homeopath) Dr. Raabe (GP & ayurvedic doctor) and Kumudini Weerawarna (ayurvedic doctor, pharmacist and herbalist).
The syrup took five years and thousands of tests to produce. The end result is a finely balanced mixture, meeting all the mineral and nutrient requirements for the Lemon Detox Diet.
Maple syrup: Maple trees must be about 40 years old before they can be tapped. The bird´s-eye maple, one of over 75 varieties of maple tree, only produces sap during a period of four to six weeks during March and April at the start of the Canadian spring. At this time the forests are still covered by several feet of snow. Thus harvesting the sap is a cold and arduous task. There are three categories of sap identifiable by their colour. The first phase of the harvest is the most abundant and contains more sugars and fewer minerals. This is called Harvest A, and is of a light amber colour and widely used in cookery. Harvest B is the middle phase and used as a sweetener in the specialist food market and is of medium amber colour. Harvest C is the final collection of the year and has the smallest yield. The sap is dark amber in colour and of superior quality; it is highly concentrated, less sweet and with the highest mineral content. The sap is turned into syrup by means of water evaporation.
Palm Tree Syrup: The production of palm syrup is equally painstaking, involving the cutting of the tree´s flowering fruit stems a little each day. The sap is then harvested from the stem. This delicate, laborious task effectively condenses the most potent life force of the plant, the sap that would otherwise have become the fruit of the tree (coconuts for instance). This sap is then heated over an open fire, gently concentrating the syrup to avoid fermentation. The Lemon Detox Diet (Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup) uses sap from several Southeast Asian palm species, including the Coconut Palm, the Arenga and Kitul Palms of the rainforests, the Nipah Palm of the swamps and marshes, and the Palmyra Palm of northern Sri Lanka. Madal Bal uses only palm syrup produced on small family farms, using techniques introduced and monitored by international aid workers. This intensive form of production is certainly more expensive than large-scale plantation methods, but it ensures the highest-quality syrup, and helps local community development by supporting family-based enterprise.
One of the key components of The Lemon Detox Diet (Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup) is its richness in essential minerals. Maple syrup is rich in manganese and zinc, two minerals that are almost nonexistent in palm syrup. On the other hand, palm syrup contains large quantities of potassium and calcium, elements required by the cells to function properly and, therefore, important to the purification of the body. When mixed in the right proportions, we get unique Natural Tree Syrup with a rich and balanced mineral content.
The Lemon Detox Diet allows the body to cleanse itself naturally while taking a break from solid food.
The body has miraculous powers to cleanse itself, but a growing proportion of us in the developed world eat too much food lacking in nutritional value and of little benefit to our bodies. Our system has to work harder and faster to eliminate the waste created by these foods. In addition, the numerous chemicals and toxins that have been introduced into the natural environment can find their ways into our bodies through the air we breathe and the water we drink. This puts added strain on the elimination processes in our bodies
The Lemon Detox Diet is a drink consisting of pure water, fresh lemon juice, cayenne pepper or ground ginger and Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup. Whenever you get hungry simply mix a glass of the drink.
The Detox Drink
To make one glass of Natural Tree Syrup and Lemon Drink take:
- Two small tablespoons (or 20 ml) of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup.
- Two tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice (about half a lemon). Use fresh lemons, not lemon drink or concentrate.
- Half a pinch of cayenne pepper or ginger (adjust to taste).
Mix the ingredients and dilute with half a pint of hot or cold water.
Drink as much as you like, ideally 6 to 9 glasses a day.
If you prefer you can prepare one batch of Natural Tree Syrup and Lemon Drink to last for the whole day. For 1½ litre of water (approx. 7 glasses) you will need 140ml of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup and 3Â½ lemons as well as the cayenne pepper or ginger.
There are 4 Versions of the The Lemon Detox Diet (Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup). Find out the most appropriate for you :
1. The Full Detox:-
This is the classic version that has been used by thousands of people throughout the world. Some people, when thinking about fasting for the first time imagine that they wont be able to make it through seven days but what youâ€™ll probably find is that after the second day it just gets easier and easier. The 5-7 day version is also convenient because one 1-litre tin of the Lemon Detox - Madal Bal Syrup lasts most people 5-7 days.
For the beginner, a shorter period is recommended 5 to 7 days. For those more experienced at detoxing, 10 days is the optimum time. It can be extended up to 14 days but should only be done so with the consent of a healthcare professional.
Stanley Burroughs recommended doing the diet for 10 days because the cleansing gets better the longer the diet continues. By the time you get to the 7th day youll most likely feel so good that going a few extra days will be easy. Going 10-14 days will give you the maximum result by keeping your body in a fasting mode for the fullest length of time.
During the total detox programme, drink only the recommended liquids.
Do not eat any solid foods.
If you are on any medication do not go off your medication without consulting your doctor.
2. The Relaxed Version:-
If you are looking for a more relaxed version of the detox, try substituting either breakfast or dinner (or even better, both) with 2-3 glasses of the Natural Tree Syrup & Lemon Drink. Have a healthy meal at lunchtime but abstain from sweets, processed foods, red meat, fried foods, white bread, refined flour, dairy products, coffee and alcohol. These are all food products that tax our natural digestive/cleansing system and inhibit the body´s ability to deal with previously stored toxins and wastes. The relaxed programme works by lengthening the time each night that the body can cleanse. It does however take longer to detox this way, which is why the relaxed version should be done for at least one to two weeks and up to a month. The relaxed programme can also be used as an introduction to the total detox, or as a way of extending it.
3. The "Once a Week" Version:-
Most people never give their digestive and eliminative organs a break. Day in and day out they place a continuous load on their system. Taking a break "Once a Week" gives our system a chance to rest and cleanse for a day. Going without solid food for a day isn´t that difficult and people who have practiced this programme have had good long-term weight-normalization results.
4. The Master Plan:-
Many people who have tried the Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup have liked the results so much that they wish to make cleansing and the Lemon Detox Diet a regular part of their lives. The total detox incorporates the benefits of cleansing Once a Week plus a twice-yearly multi-day cleanse. Performing a twice yearly multi-day cleanse gives the body a chance to detox and heal itself from the stresses put upon it. You gain the maximum results of the lemon detox, cleansing your bodies of accumulated wastes and toxins and losing excess weight. Performing the Once a Week version of the lemon detox after a multi-day version helps the body to maintain its toxic free condition and is a great on-going cleansing routine.
The Challenge - It´s all in the Mind
The main challenge of the programme is mental. Because we are accustomed to eating whenever we feel like it, the discipline of not taking any solid food can seem a bit daunting. Eating has become a habit and like any other habits it´s not so easy to break, even temporarily. It is often very tempting to cheat during the detox. Don´t give in to temptation. Stick to it! Be strong! When you experience hunger simply treat yourself to another Natural Tree Syrup and Lemon Drink. Keep thinking of all the benefits you will achieve when you have finished the Lemon Detox Diet and can enjoy solid food again.
A true fast is complete abstinence from food of any kind, yet the Lemon Detox is liquid food - nourishing and energizing. It is important not to burden the body with solid food during the detox. Digesting solid food consumes much of the body´s energy and overrides many of its other tasks. In the absence of solid food the body can focus its energy on cleansing. Throughout history, experience has shown a periodic abstinence from solid food to be a blessing for the entire organism, the best investment in improved health and a longer natural life span.
While the actual inner cleansing and rejuvenation is performed by the body itself, the Natural Tree Syrup and Lemon drink fulfils important functions in assisting this process: It supplies the nutrients necessary for the body´s continuing alert functioning, assisting to restore the biochemical and mineral balance in tissues and cells and expediting cell regeneration. It is assimilated directly into the bloodstream, placing no additional burden on the digestive system. It provides a liquid medium essential for the efficient flushing of wastes from the system.
The acidity of lemon juice assists the cleansing process, acting like an internal detergent to dissolve excess fats and the cayenne pepper or ground ginger helps speed up metabolism, thus promoting circulation and the elimination of toxins.
Please note this is a detox not a diet. We recommend that you consult a practitioner if you have any concerns about weight loss.
