Hi Emma, welcome to the Master Cleanse and this bulletin board :)
All the information you want is on the website at www.TheMasterCleanse.com.
By the way, skip the agave nector and do the cleanse as described. That way you'll get all the great benefits you read about. If you alter it, there's no way of knowing what kind of a result you'll get.

I can't use many herbal laxatives because of bad reactions in the past. Is it ok to use a powder magnesium to do the trick? That's what I usually use if I need it. I'm on day 2 using the mag...am I causing more harm than good???

We recommend sticking strictly to the book and magnesium isn't one of the ingredients. Can you try "Smoothe Move" or "Get Regular"? Those two LAX Teas seem to be the most popular.
Keep me posted on how you're doing. :)

when i've taken senna, i've had a pretty harsh sensitivity(meaning one sip of tea and i knew i was going to have an allergic reaction-it took hours to get over and there was no bm involved-this was 2 years ago). i've also passed out every time i've used laxatives-which is why i don't anymore. is there an herbal that doesn't have senna? i'm sorry, i had the book and started to do the cleanse 2 years ago and now i can't find it and my husband and i are on day 3. i may be able to buy one today, if i can make it to the right store. so i don't have all the info within reach...my husband likes the magnesium better than the smooth move because it works better, but we don't want the mag to be hindering the cleanse...i can get him to use sm, and maybe i can try a very weak version...when he's home...senna just does not agree with me. any alternatives? besides the mag issue, everything has been pretty good. lots of peeing out of the butt, white tongue, yesterday i had a little exhaustion and weakness/slight headache...but no real hunger, i miss the taste of food-and i'm cooking for my kids so it's been hard to smell it and not taste it. i love, love, love that i found this board. thank you!!!!! jen
