The late Stanley Burroughs was a pioneer in alternative health care, although he had no medical degrees, he was known for his research of toxemia, a clinical syndrome caused by toxic substances in the blood. In 1941, he was searching for a new method for treating ulcers. He noticed that his lemonade drink successfully treated many other medical conditions, such as chronic aches and pains, high blood pressure, obesity, high cholesterol, asthma, allergies and more. He named his method The Master Cleanse.
