Master Cleanse Salt Water Flush: A Bath for Your Insides
Just as you take a bath each day to wash away dirt from the outside of your body, proponents of the master cleanse diet suggest you also give your insides a good regular cleaning. One way to do this is by using a salt water flush. This flush works much like having the radiator in your car flushed. It cleans out all the trash, wastes, toxins and deposits that keep your body from working at its best.
First, you may think a laxative or enema you can buy at your local drug store can do an adequate job of clearing out whatever may be clogging up your intestines. However, these preparations will only clean out the colon - which is only a small part of the intestines - and sometimes only part of the colon. The salt water flush is superior to these methods because it can clean out the entire digestive system. The flush also costs less than some store bought colon cleansing products.
Second, you may wonder if you can do a salt water flush yourself or if you need a doctor or nurse to help you with the procedure. The answer is no! A salt water flush can be done at home with ingredients you may already have in your kitchen cabinets. In fact the only things you need to properly complete a salt water flush are water and sea salt. In his essay "The Master Cleanser with Special Needs and Problems" Stanley Burroughs cautions users to be sure they use sea salt in their preparation and not regular salt because regular table salt will not work properly.
You will now need to know how to perform a salt water flush. The procedure is very simple. First thing in the morning, mix one quart of lukewarm water with two teaspoonsful of sea salt. Drink the entire concoction before you have eaten any food. Within one hour you should have several bowel movements. If not, you may need to try adding a little more salt to the mix, or you may just need to drink more water to help aid the flushing process. Since this flush is not harmful to the body and your body cannot become dependant on the salt water, like it can become dependant on chemical laxatives, this flush is safe to use as often as needed.
Burroughs also suggests drinking an herbal laxative tea in the evening before you plan to do a salt water flush. He says the tea will help to loosen the deposits and gunk in the digestive tract making it easier for the salt water to flush the wastes out the next morning.
So, next time you feel fatigued or unusually tired, you might try helping your body along by washing out your digestive tract with a salt water flush. This flush can help clean the toxins and built up waste products out of your digestive tract. The end results are better, more effective digestion through a cleaner less toxic digestive tract.
