What about a master cleanse?
A master cleanse is a special detox diet using tea and a lemonade juice made from cayenne pepper and maple syrup. No foods are permitted during the cleanse. I wouldn’t recommend it, because of the lack of nutrients and it has been shown to be harmful over the long term use. Plus, you could become dehydrated from it.
It is always important to understand the side effects and cautions of various herbal teas. They are considered to be safe since they are natural, but this only applies if used appropriately. Improper use can be very dangerous. So, you should always consult your diet with a doctor before going on a body cleanse.
