A friend has asked me to do a lemon detox for 2 weeks and I am not sure. I did a little research and even looked into other detox and came across Dr Oz detox....sounds much better and safer.....just not sure.

No, I have never done one. Others on this board for medical reasons have or desirous results have.

I did the Master Cleanse or "Lemonade Diet"
by Stanley Burroughs for 20 days once.
He has a book.
I lost weight, and felt wonderful by the time it was over.
I would probably do it again, except I do not want to put the maple syrup in my body.
It made my sister sick as a dog. I have heard her say more than once, that it made her as sick as she has ever been.
Check it out on line.

I have done water fast for shorter periods of time many times.

Faye, that is the detox we plan on doing, thanks for your input. The cayenne pepper is my worry because I have the acid reflex disease. Plus I have the tendency to get low sugar so will see if I have the problem of the "no eating". We can't afford to get the book but we plan on doing it for 2wks....will see if I can do it.

I did find a sight that gave a suggestions to those that can't quite make it thru the 2 wks and that was to eat raw veggies... but very sparingly! Was there anything in the book that could help me?

Overcoming Unforgiveness

Read | Matthew 6:9-15

Do you constantly struggle to forgive people who have wronged you? If so, you may be of the opinion that forgiveness is simply a feeling one can have in the face of conflict—and that you are incapable of experiencing it. If that’s your mindset, you are operating with a faulty understanding. Genuine forgiveness is not a feeling, but an action.

If you find it hard to forgive others, the following four guidelines can help:

1. Acknowledge and confess an unforgiving spirit. No, it is not always easy to forgive. We are sometimes the target of tremendously hurtful offenses. However, we are not accountable for other people’s behavior; we are responsible only for our own. God commanded us to be loving, forgiving people. If we hold a grudge, that is our problem and no one else’s—we must repent of this sin and ask God to help our unforgiveness.

2. Release the other person. Make a decision to release the offender in your mind. If you find yourself reliving details of the upsetting behavior, force yourself to stop.

3. Forgive the offender forgetfully. By keeping details fresh in your mind, you trap yourself in a cycle of pain. Choose instead to separate the individual from the painful memory.

4. Forgive with finality. Genuine forgiveness is complete. This means that you cannot “forgive” someone and then continually bring the subject up. Forgive him or her, and then move on.

If you’ve been holding onto bitterness, pray for the strength to forgive. Then do it—without delay.
