MASTER CLEANSE SAFE?
Jun 23, 2010

is the LEMONADE MASTER CLEANSE SAFE FOR ME .? I AM HIV POZ AND HAVE a NORMAL CD4 and I AM ALSO UNDETECABLE.

I AM WONDERING IF DOING A HIGHLY ACIDIC LEMONADE MASTER CLEANSE WILL HELP OR HARM ME? ALSO WILL IT FLUSH MY MEDICATION OUT? IM ON ATRIPLA. I HAVE BEEN VERY GOOD ABOUT MY ADHERANCE AND I DONT WANNA FLUSH MY MEDICATION OUT ETC. WILL THIS AFFECT IT AT ALL BEING THAT THE LEMONADE CLEANSE THE SYSTEM AND DETOXIFIES THE BLOOD?

Response from Dr. Henry

Atripla likely would remain effective when taking lemonade master cleanse diet. Long term benefit of Master Cleanse has been poorly documented-evidence of benefit and safety is anecdotal and has not been formally studied in HIV+ persons on Atripla. KH
