Getting Down the Salt Water Flush with the Master Cleanse
OK, as I wrote last night I started the Lemon Master Cleanse this AM, and it is official the absolute worst part of this cleanse is the salt water flush. This flush is known by many names: an internal cleanse, natural colon cleansing, salt water cleanse, intestinal cleansing, or colon cleanse just to name a few.
The salt water flush recipe is 32oz of water with 2 teaspoons of uniodized sea salt. The whole process of the Master Cleanse (also known as the Lemon Master Cleanse, detox, full body detox, or the Maple Syrup Cleanse) includes you not eating any solid food for the duration, and only drinking the mix for the Master Cleanse and a smooth move tea at night. The final step and one of the most important is the salt water flush in the morning. This process is 100% natural, and how it works is that the salt weighs down the water to push everything through your system to give you a total cleanse...
So what is the problem? Getting it down! To get the salt water past your tongue to your intestines, is absolutely horrible, and by far the worst part of the cleanse. The Lemonade mixture is surprisingly good and filling. Who would have thought that Maple Syrup, Cayenne Pepper, and Lemons would go well together?
In all seriousness, it is now 12:27pm and the last time I had anything to eat was for dinner last night and I am not the least bit hungry. I am drinking the lemonade and it is going surprisingly well. I know I am just starting but so far so good! If I find any tips on the salt water flush I will post them immediately, right now all I can say is if you have the determination to do the Master Cleanse be it for 10 or 40 days then you have the will power to get down 32 oz of salt water!
You may read in places that there is no reason to detox your body, but if you look at the ingredients of what we eat and have eaten for many years, you will definitely see why I felt this was a good thing! Most of what we "eat" now has little to no nutritional value and the need to clean it out of our system gets greater as time goes on. The salt water flush as part of the colon cleanse is imperative to receive the best results from the Master Cleanse and has even been used in our house when we eat something that disagrees with us or gives us a stomach ache. It just pushes everything through the system!
The comments are for any and all suggestions! I hope to have a suggestion quickly as making it through without a tip will be ROUGH!
