Bee Pollen - After the Lemon Detox

After doing the detox, it is important to ensure that your body is given enough nutrients.
Lacking of essential nutrients can cause irrational cravings, which then lead to weight gain. The cleansing process is followed by a recovery stage. The body must receive (particularly in recovery) all the nutrients that are needed for it to function well. A wholesome diet, as always, is the most important factor to achieve this. To achieve maximum benefits, add Bee Pollen to your daily diet to boost your nutrient intake.

Bee Pollen is one of natures most complete super foods when it comes to its nutrient profile. It has 25% protein, which is a complete protein (meaning that it contains all essential amino acids), is rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements, fatty acids and enzymes, can improve energy and stamina and much more.

It is recommended to take one teaspoon twice a day. Do not heat it. In order for it to be best absorbed by the body, take it via the sub lingual method (putting it under your tongue).

Different versions of Lemon Detox

There are 3 main different versions of the Lemon Detox Program


This is the classic and most common version that has been used by thousands of people throughout the world. Of all the cleansing versions, this version is the quickest and most effective way to cleanse the body. This version involves substituting all meals with the Lemon Detox drink. 

Breakfast: 2-3 glasses of the Lemon Detox drink 
Lunch: 2-3 glasses of the Lemon Detox drink 
Dinner: 2-3 glasses of the Lemon Detox drink 

This version can be done from a minimum of 5 days. The ideal duration of the Lemon Detox cleanse is 10 days on the Full Body Cleanse. 

Inventor, Stanley Burroughs recommends doing the Lemon Detox Diet cleanse for 10 days as this will ensure the body is well cleansed. By the time you get to the 7th day you'll most likely feel so good that going a few extra days will be easy.


The relaxed version allows the body to purify itself at a slower rate, while still taking in some solid food. This version substitutes breakfast or dinner(or even better, both) with the Lemon Detox drink. 

Breakfast: 2-3 glasses of the Lemon Detox drink 
Lunch: Healthy meal 
Dinner: 2-3 glasses of the Lemon Detox drink 

During this program version you should abstain from eating 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 program works by lengthening the time each night that the body can cleanse. This offers the body more time to rejuvenate. 

But this version should be done over an extended period, at least two weeks, and it should be understood that while the effects of the relaxed version are not as dramatic as the Fully Body Cleanse version, performing the Relaxed Version for an extended period of time will yield great results 


This version is a 9 day detox which consists of 

3 days on the Relaxed Version 
3 days on the Full Body Cleanse 
3 days on the Relaxed Version 

This is the easier way to initiate yourself into the detox if you have never done it before. It also suits some people's social commitments better.

Why natural health is preferred over conventional medicine.

Natural health has many skeptics, particularly when it come to western, conventional medicine practitioners. While western medicine has its positives, it predominantly focuses on downstream treatment (which is treatment of illnesses rather than prevention). 

What natural health aims to do is to reach and maintain good health and lifestyle habits which prevent the development of disease and illness in the first place (the top five leading causes of death are now all lifestyle diseases). If there are any health concerns or issues that may arise, nutrition and sometimes natural herbs and remedies are used to strengthen the body and try and rectify the issue.  

Natural therapies and treatment is holistic - focusing on the body as a whole, where as western medicine focuses on each part of the body independent of the other.

Which would you prefer?

Lifestyle disease: A disease associated with the way a person or group of people lives.

The 'healing crisis'

The most important part of a detox is waste elimination; removing toxins from your body.

For this to happen, people will first usually experience what is called a 'healing crisis'. This usually happens on the first 2-3 days of the detox and symptoms normally disappear by the 4th day.

Basically, the healing crisis is when the toxins are being released from the tissues and cells and have entered your blood stream. As the toxins are in your blood stream on their way to elimination people experience symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, feeling lethargic, etc.

The more toxins you have stored in your body, generally the more severe the symptoms will be. This is a normal part of detoxing and is actually a good sign that it is working. It may be uncomfortable for 1 day or 2, but it is a small price to pay for your long term health!

Alternate mixing methods

You may slightly alter the mixing quantities of your detox drink.

If you feel that the taste of the syrup is too sweet or strong you may add water to the recommended mixing quantities. For example if you want to add another half a litre of water to your recommended 2 litre batch to reduce the concentration of the syrup you may, but just remember that you will have to drink an extra half a litre ( i.e. 2 extra glasses of the detox drink ).Remember the most important part of the detox drink is to consume the three and a half lemons and the 140ml of syrup per day. So, it may take you 7 glasses or 10 glasses but as long as you drink this portion per day.

If you feel that you have put too much cayenne pepper in the mix, you can slightly reduce the amount. An extra pinch of pepper can make the drink taste more zingy. If you are totally uncomfortable with cayenne pepper then you may substitute the pepper for ginger.

Another option customers use is:
1. Mix the 140ml of lemon juice and water together into a 2 Litre batch as required.
2. Leave the cayenne pepper and Madal Bal syrup out.
3. Then per glass of the lemon juice and water drink half a glass of the lemon and water mix then from a tablespoon consume 20ml of the syrup with a pinch of pepper. (You will not taste the pepper that much as it will dissolve into the thick syrup.)
4. Finish drinking the rest of the glass of lemon juice and water.
