The Neera Natural Detox and Cleansing Lifestyle Plan is an effective cleansing diet that helps you eliminate accumulated toxins and lose excess weight. The simple and natural ingredients stimulate your body natural cleansing ability, freeing up all the energy that is normally spent on the digestion and elimination of solid food. During the Neera Natural Plan, you replace all solid food with the Neera Drink, a nutritious mix of water, lemon juice, Madal Bal Syrup and a touch of cayenne pepper. The Neera Drink is liquid food that satisfies your hunger and gives you energy, while allowing your digestive system to rest and your body to cleanse. People have reported many benefits to the plan including:
Increased energy and vitality
Shinier hair and stronger nails
Clearer skin and eyes
Greater resistance to illness
Reduced dependence on supplements and drugs
Improved concentration and clarity of thought
More balanced emotions
The Neera Natural Detox and Cleansing Lifestyle Plan is the improved version of the Master Cleanser / Lemonade diet invented by Stanley Burroughs over 30 years ago. It incorporates Madal Bal Syrup, which was developed in Europe and formulated specifically for the needs of the diet. More than 3 million cans have been sold world-wide, a testament to its popularity and effectiveness.
While being a great cleansing diet, Neera Natural is also a safe weight loss diet. A favorite weight loss plan by celebrities, the program will help your body move towards its optimum weight. Most people lose between 1-2 pounds per day.
How Neera Detox Works
The Neera Detox is a nutritious detox diet which supplies your body with the necessary nutrients for alert functioning so you can abstain easily from solid food. Neera Detox is not a true fast, as it supplies the body with 400-500 calories rich in minerals, trace elements, and simple sugars.
A true fast occurs when you consume only water. Not only is this difficult to carry out, such a fast can be debilitating to your body.
Thus, why is fasting recommended?
During a fast with no protein ingested, autolysis occurs and aids in the rapid formation of new cells and removal of dead and damaged ones . This process is beneficial as it triggers the body to use damaged cells and fat for fuel to meet the requirements of daily function.
The term "fasting" is now widely used to describe the consumption of juices or a nutrient-rich liquid diet. Also, researchers often use the phrase ‘short-term calorie restriction' (400-800 calories per day) to associate a fast with a liquid diet.
" The basic cause of disease is improper diet, inadequate exercise, negative mental attitudes, and lack of spiritual attunement which combine to produce toxic conditions of our bodies. The elimination of cause of illness is the only way to healing and health ."
- Stanley Burroughs , ND , Creator of Master Cleanser
While your body does the actual cleansing and detoxification, the Neera Drink :
• Supplies the nutrients necessary for the body's continual alert functioning, restores the biochemical and mineral balance in tissues and cells, and expedites cell regeneration.
• Supplies almost no protein, so that the Drink's nutrients are assimilated directly into the bloodstream without burdening the digestive system, thus allowing it to rest.
• Provides a liquid medium essential for effective flushing of toxic substances from your body.
• Acts, via ascorbic acid in lemons, as an internal detergent to dissolve excess fat and eliminate toxins.
• Helps, via the Cayenne pepper, to speed up metabolism, promote circulation, burn fat and eliminate toxins.
• Invigorates your body's rejuvenative powers with Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup, the life force of organically-grown forest trees.
A flexible detox plan
Whether you aspire to work up the corporate ladder or manage day-to-day affairs as a homemaker, Neera Detox understands the complexities of your life. In other words, flexibility matters when you are incorporating a detox plan/ programme to match your hectic lifestyle. Select a range of detox plans, from a 1-day regimen to a 10-day plan; all designed for you to experience its countless benefits.
• The Spanish or 'Relaxed' Plan
• Once-a-Week Plan
• Three-Five Day Plan
• 7-10 Day Rejuvenation Plan
• Extending and Repeating the Programme
• Maintenance is the Key to a Healthier You
• The Spanish or 'Relaxed' Plan
Dubbed the "Spanish version," this is a popular plan where you substitute 2-3 Neera Drinks for breakfast or dinner. With just two meals a day, the plan aids the body's natural cleansing process that occurs at night. Maximise results with this Programme by staying on it for at least a month. Some foods and beverages could undermine the cleansing process hence avoid the following:
• red meat,
• refined sugar
• processed carbohydrates
• dairy products
• fried foods
The Spanish version is a great way to work your way slowly into a health plan, It's also a good way of extending the cleansing process after a more disciplined detox.
It's highly beneficial to give your digestive system and eliminative organs a break from constant digestion and elimination even for a day. Our Once-a-Week plan is a convenient detox plan where you'll get to eat most of the week but still experience cumulative benefits when you carry out the Programme consistently. By just fasting once a week, you can experience gradual weight loss and kick start yourself toward a healthier lifestyle.
Three-Five Day Plan
This plan is an effective way to lose weight and is recommended for first-timers who find it difficult to adapt to the 7 day fast. This easy to follow plan allows you to experience visible benefits with moderate weight loss and noticeable improvement in skin texture and vitality.
7-10 Day Rejuvenation Plan
A classic programme enjoyed by many throughout the world. It lasts 7-10 days and yields optimal results by keeping the body in a fasting mode for the ideal length of time. The trick is to have another Neera Drink each time you feel hungry. By the end of the third day, you will begin to feel revitalised and energised that continuing the Programme becomes relatively easy and enjoyable. If you're fasting to lose weight, expect to lose between 5-12 pounds with the 7-10 plan. Remember that regular meals should be resumed once you've completed the programme. This plan is recommended 2-3 times a year for lasting benefits.
If you're trying to lose weight.
Neera Detox can guarantee weight loss of 2-5 pounds in 3 days. Bear in mind that the key to permanent weight loss with Neera Detox is to be consistent with periodic fasting. Benefits from fasting require short and long-term strategies. Be flexible when starting your Program. Don't overdo it. Carrying out a 2-3 day or longer fast followed by short fasts each month guarantees lasting benefits. Once you've reached your ideal weight, find the ideal detox regime for health and maintenance
Here's how you can incorporate Neera Detox into your weight loss health regime:
Caution regarding eating disorders and extended fasts.
If you're suffering from bulimia or binge eating disorder, you must be extra careful with fasting. Stick to short fasts such as once a week and nothing longer than a 3-day fast. AVOID extended fasts, as extended periods may trigger binging. Seek a health practitioner to monitor your health during the fast.
Extending and repeating the Programme
Neera Detox can easily be extended for up to two weeks. Nevertheless, seek advice from a health practitioner before extending the Programme beyond 10 days. Take extra care when you resume a normal diet after carrying out a long fast. Eating too much too quickly can be taxing on your digestive system, liver, and kidneys as your body will have been at rest for a number of days. Therefore, be wise when you transit to a normal diet.
Maintenance is the key to a healthier you
Neera Detox does not end after you've completed the programme. No matter how careful you are with your diet, some build-up of toxins and metabolic waste is inevitable. For this reason, it's recommended to repeat Neera Detox to maintain optimal health. By fasting once a week, you can give your body a break from the constant demands of digestion. Experiment and find a detox plan that suits your lifestyle. You'll find that each time you revisit the Programme, it will be easier and more enjoyable.
No detox programmes comes without some form of discomfort. As a result, you may experience some cleansing symptoms. However, such discomfort should not be mistaken for side effects. In fact, these common Cleansing Symptoms are good signs that Neera Detox is working, as your body is in the process of releasing harmful toxins. The release of stored toxins from the body usually occurs in the first couple of the days when you implement the Programme. Cleansing symptoms usually last for two to three days. Since your skin is the largest eliminative organ, you may experience a rash or eczema, or pimples may appear. If you are suffering from a chronic skin disorder, the condition may temporarily worsen in the early stages of the Programme. However, such symptoms usually last only a few days before it clears, leaving your skin more radiant as toxins are released from under your skin.
A Healing Crisis is a systematic healing from the inside out. You may experience more acute cleansing symptoms or 'healing crises' if your body is especially toxic. If you're suffering from a health condition, you may experience symptoms identical to the sickness itself. Most of us often forget the diseases or injuries we suffered in the past.
During a detox, a healing crisis may occur through symptoms of past sickness. Common symptoms of healing crisis are fever, headaches, extreme fatigue, aches, pains, sleeplessness, sinus congestion, catarrhal expulsion and skin eruption. These are all signs that the detox is working and that your body is going through the process of cleaning itself of impurities, toxins and imbalances. Drink lots of water and the Neera Drink to help flush toxins out of the body and get plenty of rest. Do not give up when discomfort arises so that the body can do its work to heal from the inside out. How to alleviate cleansing symptoms. Cleansing symptoms usually last between 1 to 3 days as toxins circulate and are eliminated. You will begin to feel energised and revitalised after Day 3 and 4. If your cleansing symptoms are too intense and too rapid, you can take these steps to slow down the cleansing process:
â€¢ Consume additional Neera Drinks throughout the day. By consuming more Neera Drinks, your body will need to process the additional carbohydrates and nutrients, thus slowing its cleansing function
â€¢ Drink additional 1-2 litres of water to flush out toxins
â€¢ If you're experiencing headaches or stomachache, have a hot cup of peppermint tea
â€¢ If youâ€™re experiencing exceptional discomfort, such as aches, fever, acute pain, unusual rashes â€“ please consult one of our doctors at our store locations. They will be able to assist you through the Programme.
â€¢ Take the time to rest as your body needs to cleanse, restore and heal.
Helping Your Body Cleanse
The key to a successful detox is removing toxins or accumulated waste matter during your cleansing process. You will begin to feel revitalised and energised as more toxins are released and eliminated. Below are steps you can follow to aid in the elimination process:
Senna Tea - Natural Laxative. Included in the package are Senna tea bags. Drink a bag each morning and at night. Senna tea works as a natural laxative to help break layers of accumulated waste matter in the stomach and intestinal track. Start with a mild brew, steeping for only 2-3 minutes on the first day and gradually increasing steeping time by a minute or two thereafter. Follow this gradual process to avoid getting cramps. If you have a sensitive stomach and cannot consume Senna tea, you may want to try a salt water flush each morning and have one cup of Senna tea at night.
Salt Water Flush
Drinking water that has the same salinity as your body works as an excellent laxative. It cannot be absorbed and passes right through your system, clearing the intestinal tract of layers of debris and accumulated waste matter. To make a salt water flush, add 2 level teaspoons of non-iodised sea salt to one litre of lukewarm pure water. Mix well and drink the entire mixture. Try massaging your belly and colon to loosen accumulated waste matter. Within a half hour to an hour, the salt water will prompt you to eliminate several times.
Do not overexert yourself physically during your Neera Detox Program. Use this time instead to walk, do stretches or like exercises to improve blood circulation and aid in the process of eliminating waste products.
Dry brushing promotes lymphatic drainage and helps to loosen the toxins stored in fat pockets under your skin. Use a natural bristle brush or a loofah to brush the skin of your entire body starting from the feet, moving upwards towards the heart. Repeat this every morning and night before your bath.
Sauna or Steam Bath
A sauna or steam bath is a relaxing way of removing toxins through your skin and helps to alleviate bodily aches during the detox.
Eating has become such a habit that we eat when we're bored. Often enough, we eat more than our body needs. You may be wondering how it's possible not to eat during the Neera Detox Programme and still continue with your job. Won't you be feeling hungry and weak? Although the most challenging part of this programme is to fast, sabotaging hunger pangs or crankiness will not appear when you follow the steps as instructed. Going without food is much easier than you think with Neera Detox, but like any health programme, you will require the willpower to help you get started.
How to make Neera Drink
To make one glass of Neera Drink, simply mix the following:
• Two tablespoons (20 ml) of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup
• Freshly squeezed juice of half a small lemon (20 ml)
• Half a pinch of Cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
Add the ingredients into a glass containing at least 300 ml of pure water. The delicious Neera Drink can be served hot or cold.
Pre-Mix your Drink and Save Time!
What's really handy is that a batch of the Neera Drink can be pre-mixed at the start of the day, making it really convenient to stay on the Programme. To make eight glasses of the Neera Drink, mix the following in a container of 2.4 litres of pure water:
• 160 ml (16 tablespoons) of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup
• Freshly squeezed juice of 4 small lemons (160 ml)
• ¼ teaspoon Cayenne pepper or adjust to taste
How much Neera Drink you need may vary depending up on your constitution, lifestyle, activity and climate. Find the ideal amount for you, and pre-mix it for a daily batch. Drink 6-12 glasses a day and have a glass whenever you feel hungry throughout the day.
Organic Neera Detox Tea
The success of the Programme hinges on the proper elimination of toxins from your system, and our special blend of tea is important for eliminating accumulated waste matter in your stomach and intestinal track. To ensure that toxins are eliminated properly, drink Neera Detox tea when you wake up in the morning as well as before bedtime
To make Tea
Steep tea bag in a cup of hot water for 2-3 minutes to make a light laxative tea. We recommend increasing steeping time gradually, a minute each day, during the Programme to increase the laxative effects of the tea as you become more accustomed to it. As our tea contains a small percentage of Senna, it has a light laxative effect. If you are sensitive to Senna, try a salt water flush in replace of the tea.
Breaking the Fast
As George Bernard Shaw once said "Any fool can go on a fast, but it takes a wise man to break it properly." So, plan your transition back to normal diet wisely! Your digestive system has been at rest for several days, so plunging into normal diet may shock your digestive system, liver, and kidneys. The key is to gradually introduce foods systematically. For short fast of 1-4 days, take 1-2 days to break your fast. For 5-10 days, take about 2-3 days to normal diet. Below is a sample schedule on how to break your fast properly. If you intend to carry out the programme for more than 10 days, your transition to a normal diet is half the length of your duration on the Programme. The longer your fast is, the more care you should take when resuming normal eating habits.
Sample of a schedule of breaking a fast properly:
Day 1 after your fast:
Start with fresh fruit juices and fruit. At the end of the day, have vegetable puree or broth.
Drink juice and have fruit, salads or soup. Eat steamed vegetables or brown rice at the end of the day.
Begin introducing carbohydrates and protein. Resume normal diet.
Prepare the Mix
Once you determine the length of your detoxification, you will need to stock up on lemons and distilled water. The chart below will help you to decide how much of each ingredient is needed. A minimum of 6 – 10 glasses of Neera Drink is recommended daily.

Organic Cayenne Pepper
Capsiasin, a pungent compound found in Cayenne pepper, has a ‘heat effect’ on the body. When taken during Neera Detox, it loosens accumulated mucous in the body's internal lining where toxins are collected for easy elimination. It also speeds up metabolism to burn fat and promotes circulation in remote areas of the body.

In the late 18th century, lemons were recognised for their medicinal properties when used to treat scurvy. Today, lemons are an important ingredient in natural remedies to detoxify the body, especially the liver. It provides the body with Vitamin C, magnesium, and potassium. It neutralises the PH balance of an overly acidic body, reducing bacterial and fungal growth. In addition, it acts as an internal detergent and an effective agent in dissolving fat during Neera Detox.
Distilled water is the best choice of water during Neera Detox. It's pure and has few contaminants. Drinking pure water is essential to flush toxins out of the body and keep the body hydrated during a detox.

Neera Natural Lemon Detox and Cleansing Lifestyle Plan and master cleanse reviews show that our product is not just hype and speculation. It works! Doctor reviews suggest that improvements for various ailments and chronic conditions are seen in patients who use the cleanse. Patients have also lost weight and see improvement in their overall health. Consumer reviews back up the claims of the product also. We regularly get emails and phone calls from Neera customers who have lost weight, have beaten chronic health conditions and who are feeling more healthy and energetic as a result of the detox and cleanse. But don't just take our word for it! Here are a few of the testimonials we've received:
Accounts of Neera Natural at work
"I've been a Neera user for more than 6 years and am thoroughly satisfied with the product. The Neera program is easy to follow and once you're on to day 3, it's a breeze. I feel great and I'm able to continue my visits to the gym! I'm currently doing the cleanse and I've lost 5 pounds in 7 days, and I'm looking forward to a bit more weight loss over the next 8 days. I normally stay on the program for the full 15 days, and I do it every 6 months. Great program with great results!"
--L. Meyers, Eugene, OR
"I waited a month after participating in the Neera cleanse to share my results. Just wanted to make sure it was for real! I've suffered from digestion problems for almost two decades. During this time, my gastroenterologist prescribed a number of medications, nasty liquids and medical tests. Some relief was provided but none cured the problem of constipation. I was diagnosed with a spastic colon and twice wound up in the emergency room with a partially blocked bowel. I didn't expect any dramatic change in my condition, but after a five-day fast with Neera Natural, I have experienced normal bowel function. I recently had an exam with my gastroenterologist, and he confirmed that my condition has improved. I am truly amazed! If my condition returns, I am confident that repeating the cleanse will provide relief."
--C. Wilson, Livermore, CA
"After both my brother and my sister told me how amazed they were using Neera, and since I was struggling to lose weight myself, I broke down and did the 5-day cleanse. I lost 9 pounds in those 5 days, and have lost another 6 pounds in the two weeks since, just by replacing one or two meals a day with the Neera drink. More importantly, my wife did the 5-day cleanse with me, and is very happy that it re-set her digestive system that had been giving her trouble for many years! I'm sold!"
--H. Wilson, Livermore, CA
"Several health issues and surgeries over the last new years left me with much unwanted weight that I could not seem to get rid of no matter how hard I tried. I'd been reading about the importance of cleansing and how a detoxifying cleanse could assist with 'resetting' your body's metabolism, giving you a greater chance of success with weight loss efforts. A friend directed me to your web site, and I carefully studied what you had to say about The Natural Detox and Cleansing Diet - how it worked and why it was good for our bodies. It just made sense, so I decided to give it a try. I started with a 5-day cleanse and lost 9 pounds! I expected to be ravenous and was pleasantly surprised that even though my energy levels were down slightly by day 5, I never experienced all that much hunger. I even went to the gym each day during the cleanse. Also, a surprise was that I didn't gain the weight back when I went back to eating normally. In fact, I continued to lose weight! So far, I've lost 18 pounds in just two months, and it's been embarrassingly easy! I now eat a very balanced alkaline diet - mostly vegetarian - but, after reading your instruction pamphlet, I've also started adding lemon and cayenne to essentially everything I eat. In addition, I've been doing weekly 1-day cleanses, and I feel better than I have in years! I am sold on the product!"
- M. Michaels, Benicia, California
"Hi, I was at first skeptical but after 8 days on the diet, I was amazed to have lost 13 pounds and then kept on dropping weight for the following few days afterwards. Wow! Friends and work colleagues who see me everyday complimented me how I look thinner, especially in my face. Now I have a bunch of friends from work and my home country of Australia (currently I'm working in California) who are trying your program out. Thank you again for helping me lose weight."
"I have a pretty demanding job here and was concerned about doing the cleanse. I have to say during the diet I never felt tired, and I had a lot of energy. I lost nine pounds in five days. At my store we have recommended the diet to older people, younger people, just about anyone can do this diet. We had a lady who was skeptical and was going to try it for three days, she did it for seven. During the diet you don't get hungry, you just keep sipping the Neera Drink all day. The diet allows you to cleanse your body on a cellular level. If you are trying to change your diet, to improve your diet and lifestyle, this is a great way to get a fresh start."
- David Stouder, owner, Apple Health Foods, Redwood City, California and host of the "Vitamin Shelf" on KEST radio
"I was turned on to the Neera™ Natural by one of my coaching clients. I was using a different product at the time, but after listening to him rave about how great he felt, I had to try it myself. I feel our bodies are just like the cars we drive. They need tune ups, oil changes, flushing the engine just like our bodies need. Doing a cleanse 4 times a year at the start of each season gives your body a feeling like new! Cleansing the body will lead you to a much more healthy life and you won't need to replace parts due to getting old-- you are keeping all systems clean, fresh and like new. I did the Neera cleanse the first time for six days. The first two days were a bit hard, but by the third day I felt the most amazing energy, my eyesight was better and all my cravings for things such as the coffee I love were gone. At the end of 6 days, my skin was softer, my hair was shiny and people were saying, "Wow, you look great!" I am a coach to people from all walks of life and with all kinds of goals. Twenty of my clients just completed the cleanse; we all did it together! Each one has their own testimonial to share, and each one will do it again next season. The best testimonial I received from a client was that his fear of running in a race was gone; he felt calm, peaceful and had a renewed sense of purpose and focus. Thank you for helping us all live a longer, healthier life.

Acid Reflux Disease
"I am writing about my healing cleanse experience after more than 25 years of gastro esophageal reflux disease (gerd, indigestion/heartburn or acid reflux), however anyone wants to describe it. I incurred thousands of dollars in medical expense during the time that I suffered with this disease, but fortunately I had insurance most of the time. So I had all the tests, including having a camera put into my stomach (twice) to try to determine why my condition was not improving. Finally through my husband, I learned about the diet and was blessed with a copy of Stanley Burroughs's Master Cleanser. I started my fast on May 28, 2006, with the idea of fasting only nine days--and ended it 42 days later. During the first 30 days, I lost 30 pounds, an incredibly good side-effect, and have had no other problems with acid reflux since. After completing and ending the fast as suggested by Mr. Burroughs, I waited a month before testing myself to see if, in fact, I was actually free of this ailment. I intentionally began to eat foods that I knew would send me into a gastro-intestinal attack that could continue for days and sometimes up to a week or more, before the fast. Foods like beans, milk, highly seasoned foods, and by the time I started the fast, practically anything I consumed, even water at times. Amazingly, I had no adverse effect except flatulence, which I would not have been able to pass prior to the fast, and now could without taking every prescription and over-the-counter medication known to man. After several weeks of jubilation and daily reports to my husband about my continued gastro-intestinal-distress-free life, I began to wonder how I could be free of an ailment just by fasting and drinking lemonade. I'm just sad that my father had lived with the same ailment most of his life, and never knew about this simple remedy, with the most amazing side-effect, weight loss."

Reducing Weight, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol
"I had my gall bladder removed in April. Before this I took a blood test, and my cholesterol was 253, my liver count was 160 and my blood pressure was 130 over 80. I bought one can this summer in San Diego. I have been drinking it for breakfast, a salad for lunch and anything for supper. I received my blood results yesterday on October 13. My cholesterol is 189, my liver count is 71 and my blood pressure is 106 over 68. I have lost 25 lbs. I have never achieved this kind of amazing results before. This is the first time my cholesterol has been below 200 in 22 years. I would like to say thank you."
D. Owen, San Diego, California
Skin Health and Healing Crisis
"My naturopathic doctor told me that I had a lot of toxins in my system (probably from my typical American diet). I had had acne problems for years. When I went on the Neera™ Natural Program, the acne got worse for the first few days, but by the fourth day it started to clear, and by the seventh day it was totally gone. My skin hasn't been so clear since I was a kid. My body is toxin free! I am really happy with the results. I plan on doing this diet at least once a year."
M. Garcia, Richmond, Virginia
Madal Bal Syrup vs. Maple Syrup
"I have done the Stanley Burrough's Master Cleanser diet many times, almost religiously. I love the diet but it isn't always easy. I tried your version of the diet with the Madal Bal Syrup, and I have to say I noticed that I felt better with your syrup than just regular grade-B maple syrup. I had more energy and was less hungry. You can even see the difference in the syrups. Your syrup looks so much thicker and darker. I'm saving maple syrup for my pancakes from now on. Thank you!"
Jenny Goss, Ft. Myers, Florida
Effect on Hair
The Neera Natural Plan is also beneficial to the hair. A Swiss hair institute uses Neera Natural as part of its treatment. "Waste products are deposited in the outermost cells of the body, which includes those in the hair," says the head of the institute. "For healthy hair, the purification of the body is absolutely necessary, and nothing serves this purpose better than the Neera Natural Detox Plan."
"I have never felt more pure in my life. I could actually feel the toxins and excess fat leave my body. Every morning while on the diet, I felt like a brand new person. The most impressive part of the diet was it was so much easier than I thought it would be. I didn't really feel the hunger that I thought I would; instead, the Neera Drink gave me all the energy I required to last the full 14 days that I was on diet. I realized that hunger is more mental than anything else, I am going to remember that for the rest of my life, and eat much more cautiously, all thanks to the Neera™ Natural Plan."
- J. Bains, Richmond, British Columbia
"I was on the program for 15 days. I lost 17 lbs, my skin glowed and I felt great. At the time I was on the program, I was caring for a terminally ill relative. During this stressful time, I noticed that I felt emotionally very clear. While I went on the program to detox physically, the emotional and spiritual benefits I experienced far outweighed the physical."
R. Buhrman, Phoenix, Arizona
"I have been battling with my weight since I had a baby at the age of forty. I had been skinny all my life and got into the habit of eating too much of all the wrong things. I tried every diet on the market but nothing controlled my hunger. A friend told me about the Neera™ Natural Plan. I read up about it and got excited about the fact that it gets rid of cravings. The first day, every time I felt like eating food, I drank the juice and within minutes my craving for food was under control. The first time I went on it, I tried it for five days and lost 10 lbs. The best thing was the incentive it gave me to start fresh eating habits. I now eat more sensibly, and every now and then clean out my system and lose a few extra pounds with my miracle juice. Many of my friends thought I had gone crazy when they saw me just drinking juice all day long, but when they saw the results they too went on it. So on behalf of myself and my 6 once-overweight friends, thank you!"
- S. Warren, Margate, Florida
"My family thought I was crazy to even try this cleansing diet. My main purpose was to cleanse my digestive tract. After the first day, as I began to flush the toxins from my system, I felt a serene, peaceful feeling come over me that lasted the whole rest of the fast. I was amazed that I didn't experience any cravings and looked forward to downing the sea-salt "shake" every morning. I started the diet with a cleansing laxative to flush out my bowels on Wednesday night and then didn't eat again until the following Saturday morning. I think I lost around 10 pounds. I couldn't believe where the weight was going. I had energy to do all the things I normally do each day. I am a healthy 45-year-old male. I currently weigh around 220 lbs. I look forward to trying the diet again."
- R. Weeks, Taylorsville, Utah
From Health Professionals
" Even using the Madal Bal Syrup as a meal replacement once a day can support a healthy and steady weight loss regime. At the same time, one gains consistent energy levels to face life's demands. This works well combined with homeopathy for full optimization of one's health."
Dr. Elizabeth Adalian, R S Hom
"I have tested it myself and am now introducing it in practice. I can vouch that it tastes good, is easy to sustain over 5-10 days, gives a rapid detox, and is suitable for a wide variety of patients."
Dr. Janine Leach, BSc PhD ND DO Hon MFPHM
"One of the best detox diets around. The results are excellent and long lasting. I have now started to incorporate the Neera Natural Plan into my clinic."
Ms. Marcia Harewood, ND MRN DO MH DNI Specialty: Osteopath
"The fact that a person, after 10, 14 or more days, can feel so full of vitality without having given up any of his or her normal occupations, demonstrates that the person is truly receiving all the necessary nutrients. It must be understood that the importance of abstaining from solid food lies in its acting at the very root of all functional and organic pathologies. In one of his aphorisms, the "father of western medicine" Hippocrates, stated that "humeral impurity is the cause of all sicknesses." We should not be surprised then that a sufficiently prolonged fast, thanks to the syrup and lemon, achieves such extraordinary results. By allowing the digestive and assimilatory mechanisms to rest (anabolism), the body's energy flows in a centrifugal pattern (catabolism), thus favoring the elimination of toxins and residues. Returning to Hippocrates, he says in another of his aphorisms 'In growing illness, one must stop eating... As one continues to feed an ill body, so the illness grows.' The benefits of prolonged abstention from solid food are incalculable, affecting favorably all the components that integrate the human body: the physical-energetic plane, the emotional, the mental and the spiritual. Bearing in mind the words of Hector Durville, 'The intoxicated person thinks and feels through his toxins,' we may understand why, after this program involving intracellular and neuronal purification, a person feels more lucid and tranquil. It is this psycho-physiological and mental equilibrium which leads to a state of natural harmony, characteristic of a perfect state of health."
- Luis Juan Mompo, Naturopath, Sant Bet, Barcelona, Spain
"The main objective of our preconceptional program is to renew the adipose tissues of the body, in order to reduce the amount of all sorts of fat soluble synthetic chemicals such as PCBs and dioxins. During a weekend, there is no food available other than a specially designed cocktail made from Madal Bal Syrup (a mixture of maple syrup, and palm tree syrup) and lemon juice. Cayenne pepper is added after dilution (a way to slightly increase the body temperature). The cocktail can be consumed at any time without any restriction. Its mineral content is exceptionally rich. The ratio of zinc to manganese to iron is ideal (in the region of 5:2:1). The ratio of calcium to magnesium is around 2.5:1 and the ratio of potassium to sodium around 10:1. The lemon juice represents the main source of natural vitamin C."
- Dr. Michel Odent, Primal Health Research Center Specialty: Obstetrician
"One thing that really impresses me about the Neera™ Natural Plan is that energy levels remain high, so you can continue with normal leisure and work activities."

"I find the Neera Natural Diet very useful for women wanting to conceive - many people change their diet when they are actually pregnant. So much better to be prepared for pregnancy."
- Ms. Emma Cannon
Specialty: Pre-natal care, pregnancy, women's health advisor, acupuncturist
"Very useful to kick-start dietary changes that can be permanently incorporated in a patient's lifestyle. Good way of eliminating toxins and habits, makes healing easier, giving energy to the liver where adrenal toxins are commonly found."

How long should I stay on the program?
It really depends on your own goals. It is recommended to do the fast for at least five days. This is long enough to get into the cleanse and really notice the results. Stanley Burroughs originally recommended the diet for ten days, and many people do it longer than that.
Why should not use maple syrup instead of the Madal Bal Syrup? Maple syrup is cheaper.
The Madal Bal Syrup does cost more but it's well worth it. It was formulated specifically for the diet with the right mineral concentrations and nutritional value. It gives your body more nutrients than regular maple syrup does. Plus remember, the only thing you are going to need to buy for the week is lemons for the lemon juice. You probably will spend less money during the cleanse then you would if you went out one night for a nice dinner. We have honestly talked with hundreds of people who have done the diet with maple syrup and then done it with our syrup, and they told us how much better they felt during the diet, how much more energy they had and how much easier it was to stay on the diet with the Madal Bal syrup. Several people who weren't able to stick with the diet using maple syrup told us our syrup made doing the diet possible for them and enjoyable! The whole reason for the invention of the Madal Bal Syrup was to make the diet much easier.
So, is this the diet Beyonce did?
Yes, she did it using our syrup, although the press does not always mention us. A number of celebrities have done the diet, including Ashanti, Robin Quivers and many others.
Do the Neera Natural Packs include everything needed to do the diet?
Everything, except lemons for the lemon juice. You many also use limes, if you prefer.
What is the salt water flush or sea salt shake?
During the diet most people drink a cup of the laxative tea to make sure they have a daily bowel movement. Since you are just on liquids, there is nothing solid to create a bowel movement, so we recommend the tea. But you can also try the salt water flush/sea salt shake where you mix 2 teaspoons of sea salt with about a quart of warm water. You drink as much of it down as you can. The body can not absorb it and it goes right through. It is a great colonic flush and it's safe because it is sea salt, not table salt. It doesn't taste great but it works great.
Can I eat solid food during the diet?
It is not recommended. The idea of the cleanse is to rest the digestive tract and allow the body to focus its energy on cleansing. If you eat solid food, you stop this process. The best tip is to keep a batch of the Neera Natural Drink with you at all times. When you start to feel hungry, take a big gulp of it. This will satiate your hunger and give you the energy to keep going while aiding your body's cleansing process.
Can I drink anything besides the Neera Natural Drink during the diet?
If you feel the need for variety, then once or twice a day you can drink a cup of herbal tea or freshly squeezed citrus juice (orange or grapefruit). Peppermint, rosehip and chamomile teas are useful complements to the Neera Natural Drink and make a nice contrast in taste. Peppermint tea especially supports the cleansing process, offers relief from headaches, cleanses the palate and neutralizes any mouth or body odours that may arise. Teas and juices should only be sweetened with the Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup, if at all, and don't use or add any dairy products. However, you should stick to the Neera Natural Drink as much as possible. It is crucial for giving you energy and supporting the cleansing process of the diet.
Can I change the mix of the Neera Natural Drink?
Yes, you can change the amount of syrup but don't change the amount of lemon juice. You can make the Neera Natural Drink less sweet by using 1 to 1.5 tablespoons of syrup to 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, or if you are especially hungry, you can add more syrup. Find a mix that works for you. You can adjust the amount of cayenne pepper to your liking, too.
How much should I drink per day?
Depending on your body size, you should drink about one gallon of liquids, including the Neera Natural Drink, per day. Most people drink 6-8 glasses of the Neera Natural Drink in one day. This ensures that waste material will not be too concentrated in the organs of elimination as the body goes through the cleansing process. Drink the Neera Natural Drink whenever you start to feel hungry. Don't limit the amount you drink, or try to drink too much. A good starting point is to mix up a 2-quart batch in the morning and drink from that throughout the day. You may need more than this, and some people need less. Everybody is different and their requirements differ. Listen to your own body.
Will lemon juice be too acidic on an empty stomach?
Is lemon alkaline or acidic? Citrus fruits are assumed to have an acidifying effect on the body. In actual fact, lemon juice is the opposite. It is one of the best alkalizing foods in nature. It helps counterbalance the acidity created in the body by the average American diet. More about this can be found on our News page
Won't I put the weight right back on after the diet?
Most of the time, the weight stays off. Unlike many other diets where the weight loss is mostly water weight, most of the weight lost during the Neera Natural Plan comes from the loss of diseased cells and fat tissue. Also, one of the greatest benefits of the Neera Natural Plan is that people usually kick their "bad food" addictions. As you probably know, the foods that aren't good for you are usually the same foods that make you overweight. "Junk foods, processed foods, sugary foods, and high carbohydrate diets can all cause the body to gain weight as a way of storing these excess carbohydrates. A lot of these foods become addictive. Studies have shown that long-term high sugar diets and high processed-carbohydrate diets become addictive. We literally crave sweets and other highly processed, high carbohydrate foods. When you go on a cleansing diet like the Neera Natural Plan, your body can overcome these addictions by getting a break from your normal diet. By the third or fourth day of the Neera Natural Plan, you'll most likely feel really good, healthy, vibrant and clear, because your body is cleaning out all the junk in your system. When you come off of the Neera Natural Plan, you won't want to go back to your old diet because you feel so good, and the mere idea of eating junk food will seem repulsive. Once you break these addictions, your body literally tells your mind, "I don't want this stuff in my system." Most people who perform the Neera Natural Detox and Cleansing Lifestyle Plan do it as a way of starting a new, better diet and lifestyle. The diet cleans you out. You'll lose excess weight and then feel so good that you'll want to launch into a consistently better diet and lifestyle. We constantly get feedback from people who reconfirm this. For more information about using the Neera Natural Plan to launch into a healthier more natural diet, please see our Maintaining Good Health page.
Is this a diet with a lot of laxatives?
For most people, drinking some laxative tea or the "sea salt shake" is recommended during the diet. This is just to stimulate a daily bowel movement and is not a big part of the diet. Some people are under the misconception that drinking lots of laxative tea will help them lose weight. It is simply not true, and it is not safe. We recommend drinking no more than 2 cups of the herbal laxative tea per day during the length of the cleanse. This is only meant to help stimulate a daily bowel movement.
If I am underweight, is it safe to do the diet?
Yes, in most cases. Many people suffer from underweight conditions because they are not getting the necessary nutrients they need from their diet, or they have a toxic condition in their body that is not allowing them to absorb the necessary nutrients from the food they ingest. During the Neera Natural Plan, people who are underweight will usually lose a little bit more weight; however once they come off the diet, they will gain the weight right back and usually add a few more pounds to get them closer to their natural weight. This happens because during the cleansing process of the Neera Natural Detox Plan, the body will usually heal itself from the toxic condition that was preventing adequate nutrient absorption. Once the person comes off the diet, the body is able to better digest and absorb nutrients and able to get to a more normal, healthy weight.
Can I do the diet if I have high cholesterol and blood pressure?
We do recommend you consult your physician first, if you have any sort of medical condition. A lot of people have had great success with the diet in lowering their blood pressure and cholesterol. Over the years we have received numerous testimonials to this effect. "After I had my gall bladder removed I took a blood test and my cholesterol was 253. My liver count was 160. My blood pressure was 130 over 80. I bought one can this summer in San Diego. I have been drinking it for breakfast, a salad for lunch and anything for supper. I received my blood results yesterday on October 13. My cholesterol is 189. My liver count is 71. My blood pressure is 106 over 68. I have lost 25 lbs. I have never achieved this kind of amazing results before. This is the first time my cholesterol has been below 200 in 22 years. I would like to say thank you."
D. Owen, San Diego, California
Can the diet be attempted with a stomach ulcer?
The diet has been used specifically for stomach ulcers. The diet was originally developed by Stanley Burroughs to help cure a patient of stomach ulcers. Lemon juice is one of the best alkalizing foods there is, which is counterintuitive since it is acidic until it is broken down in the stomach. Since ulcers have several different causes, however, we always suggest that you check with your doctor first. If you get their permission to do the diet, we recommend doing it under the surveillance of a health professional.
Can I perform the diet if I have diabetes?
People with type 2 diabetes have successfully and safely performed the Neera Natural Detox and Cleansing Diet Plan. While the Neera Natural Drink contains sugar from the natural tree syrups, a "no-no" for diabetics, each glass contains a fairly low amount. The idea of the diet is to drink many glasses of the Neera Natural Drink throughout the day giving the body a steady dose of simple carbohydrate. The great thing about the Neera Natural Plan for type 2 diabetics is that it is a great weight loss diet, which is a major factor in decreasing the effects of diabetes. Also, the cleanse that the internal organs get is great for increasing their efficiency. If you have type 2 diabetes and you would like to perform the Neera Natural Plan, we recommend that you get the permission of your doctor. However, most doctors are going to be unfamiliar with a cleansing fast like the Neera Natural Plan. Direct your doctor to our web site, if he/she has any questions. Type 2 diabetics who have performed the Neera Natural Plan tell us that they simply keep a close monitor of their blood sugar levels, as they normally should. Checking the levels 3-4 times a day is the safest. For more questions about type 2 diabetes and Neera Natural please contact us.
Can I do the diet while pregnant or nursing?
We do not recommend the diet for women who are pregnant or nursing. As stored toxins are released during the cleanse they may be passed into the baby. The diet is very popular with women who have finished nursing, however, or for women who are trying to conceive.
Will the diet change the effectiveness of contraceptives like the pill?
It is safe to do the diet while taking the pill, and we have never heard of the diet having any detrimental effect on its effectiveness
Does this diet use any fiber for cleansing?
The Neera Natural Plan as prescribed by Stanley Burroughs does not use any fiber in the diet. The idea of the diet is to rest the whole digestive system as much as possible, and to let the body naturally clean itself out with help of the Neera Natural Drink's ingredients and an occasional laxative. There are no psyllium shakes or other fibrous drinks that need to be taken.
Can I drink coffee or caffeinated beverages during the diet?
We recommend that you try not to drink coffee or other caffeinated beverages during the Neera Natural Detox and Cleansing Lifestyle Plan. Coffee is very toxic to the body, as are most caffeinated beverages. Since you are trying to get rid of toxins during the Neera Natural Plan, drinking coffee is counter-productive. If you really feel the need for caffeine, tea is better than coffee, and green tea is better than black tea. If you are going to go "cold turkey" off coffee during the cleanse, you might experience some caffeine withdrawal symptoms like headaches and irritability. This is because coffee is very addictive and really not very good for most people. If you have coffee withdrawal symptoms, they usually last 1- 3 days. You might want to slowly wean yourself off coffee before the diet or be prepared to take extra rest the first few days of the diet. If the caffeine withdrawal symptoms get too bad, take an Advil rather than drinking another cup of coffee. By the time you get to the fifth day of the diet, and have been off caffeine, you will feel so good that you will probably question whether or not you really want to go back to drinking coffee. At least it will give you some perspective on it.
Can I keep taking vitamins and supplements during the diet?
We recommend that you minimize the intake of vitamins and supplements during the diet. Remember, anything that you take into your body has to be digested and eliminated. Any vitamins or supplements that you take during the diet add to the digestive load of your system, diverting some of your body's energy from cleansing to digestion. If you are taking any vitamins or supplements on the advice of a healthcare practitioner for a particular ailment or deficiency, then you may wish to keep taking them. Please consult your physician about it. However, if you are taking vitamins or supplements for just general health, we recommend that you stop taking them during the diet and then resume after the diet.
Should I keep taking my medication?
If you are taking medicine prescribed by a doctor, then use common sense. Medicines may lessen the effect of the diet, but before you stop taking them, you should be in agreement with your doctor. It is better to do the Neera Natural Plan while still taking medicine than not to do it all.
Can I chew gum?
There is some debate over this question. Some people like to chew gum during the fast to have something to chew on since they are not eating food. Also chewing gum can be a nice change of taste. However, the act of chewing is the start of the digestive process, and some people believe that it also starts cravings which can make the diet more difficult. Also most gums contain processed sugar or artificial sugars and chemicals, which we recommend avoiding. On the other hand it's probably not the worst thing for the diet. If you really must chew gum, we recommend a naturally sugar-free gum like Peelu gum, or others like it that can be found at most health food stores. We leave the final decision to you.
Can I keep exercising?
Keep training, but take it easy. Avoid strenuous exercise, as intense exertion may encourage toxins to be reabsorbed rather than eliminated. When we engage in vigorous activity, the body is forced to call upon extra reserves of energy and synthesizes energy from protein and fat. This is a demanding process distracting the body from its cleansing priorities, and when compounded by the release of lactic acid from muscular activity, only increases the toxic load. Nevertheless, gentle exercise is very helpful to the cleansing process. The key is finding the right balance of activity and rest. Adequate rest is crucial during the Neera Natural Plan. While resting, the body performs its vital cleansing tasks. Athletes in training may experience a reduction in stamina, and are advised to cut back 60-70% of normal training intensity for the duration of the diet. Far from interfering with your training, the Neera Natural Plan is a wise investment for any athlete. Most athletes return to full training after the diet with renewed energy and enthusiasm. There are world-class athletes who perform the Neera Natural Plan several times per year as part of the "recovery phase" of their training. You will find that your body performs more efficiently when it is cleansed and purified, experiencing higher energy levels and performance.
Should I refrigerate the syrup after opening the can?
Like all tree syrups, an unopened can of Madal Bal Syrup has a long shelf life unrefrigerated--about 3 years. Once the can is opened, it will still have a long shelf life, but we do recommend refrigerating the can to maximize its life span.
Is there anything else I can do to help the cleansing process?
Take extra time to rest, if needed. Be gentle with yourself while your body is going through the cleanse. A warm bath with mineral salts is a nice addition to the diet- or a sauna, especially if you are experiencing aches from the detoxing process. Some people like to dry brush their skin during the cleanse. Dry brushing promotes lymphatic drainage and helps to loosen the toxins stored in fat pockets under your skin. Use a natural bristle brush or a loofah to brush the skin of your entire body starting from the feet, moving upwards towards the heart. Repeat this every morning and night before your bath. The main thing is to be patient with the whole process. It sometimes takes more than a week to fully cleanse the body. Some people need to repeat the diet to fully cleanse their body, especially if they were particularly toxic to begin with. Remember that just by trying the diet, you are doing your body a tremendous favour and it will reward you for it.
