I have had a number of people with diabetes ask about doing the Master Cleanse. In Healing for the Age of Enlightenment, Burroughs instructs diabetics to use only a bare tablespoon of molasses in each lemonade drink at first while decreasing the amount of insulin slightly. Then
each day gradually increase the amount of molasses while decreasing the amount of insulin. All the while, regularly checking the sugar level in the urine and blood to ensure it is within normal range. When you reach two tablespoons of molasses and the insulin has been eliminated, switch to two tablespoons of organic Grade B maple syrup instead of molasses.

Upon completing the Master Cleanse, a diet of fresh raw vegetables, nuts, seeds and fruits is recommended as Burroughs describes diabetes as the result of nutritional deficiencies due to a white sugar and white flour diet. Before following these instructions you should consult with
your licensed health care practitioner.
