Detox: How To Do a Salt Water Cleanse

Salt Water Flush for Colon Cleansing

Has anyone ever heard of or tried a salt water cleanse? I just did my second salt water cleanse this week. What is salt water flush, you ask? Salt water flush is an all natural and easy option to detoxifying the body and eliminate waste. I simply need something to kick-start my stalled diet. That's what got me on this.

Step by Step Guide on Salt Water Cleanse
1. Add 1 tablespoon of the sea salt to 1 Quart (32 oz or 1 liters; 0.946 liters to be exact) of warm (not boiling) water and stir until dissolved. Some people using 2 tablespoon. But I couldn't handle that much. It makes it taste way nastier! Want to tell you it's the most disgusting thing I've ever tasted. I am struggling big time to finish the full 1 liters.

2. You must use non-iodized, natural sea salt. Don’t use processed table salt; you won’t get the same affect. 

3. Add lemon or lime juice for flavoring.

4. Drink first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

5. Do not eat for at least 2 hours.

6. Drink lots of water and avoid coffee, tea, or anything that may be dehydrating.

7. Drink the entire glass down within 5-10 minutes, then drink another quart of purified water within a half an hour.

What to Expect?
The saltwater solution taste very salty, and makes me nauseous. Once you drink the solution, it comes out of the body within 30 minutes. I feel light headed and bloated for a minute. But from what I read, this is normal as your body is working the saltwater through the intestine at this point. So no worry. You will experience several more bowel movement within 1 to 2 hours. Keep drinking enough water to keep things moving through you until you are expelling nothing but water. OMG the experience was extremely gross! But it worked very well. I feel lighter and so much better afterwards. Do the cleanse on the day you don't have to work, or don't have to go anywhere. DON'T LEAVE THE HOUSE for your convenience as you will need to visit the bathroom frequently.

What to Eat BEFORE and AFTER Salt Water Cleanse
The night before performing a saltwater flush, skip one meal such as dinner. Drink a cup or two of herbal tea to help with the elimination of toxins as well.

After saltwater cleanse, it's recommended to eat yogurt to help repopulate the healthy bacteria in the intestines. You can start eating clean at your next meal. Avoid eating food that is too heavy to digest, spicy foods, alcohol and oily food products. Saltwater cleanse is an ideal way to jumpstart more healthful habits.

Salt Water Tips:
1. Never use iodized table salt for your salt water flush.
The common table salt is 99.9% sodium chloride. It is obtained from the terrestrial salt deposits which are mined, heat-blasted and chemically treated. The refining process of table salt strips it of all of its minerals, other than sodium and chloride. This makes it an unnatural substance as compared to sea salt, and contributes to high blood pressure, heart and kidney diseases.

Sea salt on the other hand is the unrefined salt that is obtained by simply evaporating the water from the seas or oceans. sea salt has other minerals like iron, sulfur and magnesium naturally present in them. This increases the nutritive value of sea salt as compared to table salt. The various minerals present in sea salt helps us to maintain a healthy balance of the various electrolytes in the body.

2. Brush your teeth before you drink the solution
The salt water solution taste less nasty after you brush your teeth. Choose minty toothpaste.

3. Use a straw
Drink through a straw and hold nose. Some people find it really helps. But for me I prefer to drink in a chug-a-lug fashion. No stopping, or pausing. If I resting in between, I may won't be able to continue.

4. Moderate exercise such as stretching
Deep breathing and stretching may help speed the process up by stimulating deep muscle blood flow.

Salt water cleanse did worked great for me. But bear in mind, everyone's experience is different. For some individuals this may not work at the first attempt. Try adjusting the amount of salt until the proper balance is found; or possibly take extra water, with or without salt. This often increases the activity. The most important thing, consult a doctor before making any big changes in your diet.
