Of course the whole purpose of the Master Cleanse / Lemonade Diet is to help your body to remove all the nasty toxins that have been laying inside of you over the last few years. Now while the lemon drink itself will help to get the toxins out of your system you are going to have to make the effort to expel them from your body. This of course is only going to happen by creating some good old bowel movements… which is done by doing the Salt Water Flush first thing in the morning.
The Salt Water Flush is done to artificially create the bowel movement because you are not eating any sort of solid foods.
While you might be okay with just drinking laxative tea every single night I would recommend doing the SWF every morning as it just makes the whole process a lot easier.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a clue where to start with the salt water flush, because there is a video at the end of the post that will guide you through everything that you need to know.
Two Tips To Help You Do The Salt Water Flush Properly
1. Never use iodized table salt for your salt water flush, Make sure that you opt for non iodized sea salt.
2. You have to make sure that you only ever do the SWF on an empty stomach… hence why it is best to do it first thing in the morning when you wake up.
Believe me the salt water flush is a critical part of the Master cleanse. Doing it in the morning will be the best option, so make the effort to get up early to do it.
Of course you need to make the effort to make this a habit and you will need to be alert once you take it down because your bowels wil begin moving very shortly after you drink the solution.
You can expect to be on the toilet with an hour of drinking the salt water flush solution.
While this whole process is nothing pleasant it is crucial to the whole master cleanse process. You need those harmful toxins out of your body and this is the only way to do it.
Salt Water Flush Video Going Through The Basics Of The Salt Water Flush:
How to Make the Salt Water Flush Solution:
Get yourself an empty 1 litre water bottle and a teaspoon and create a mixture using the following ingredients:
1. 2 teaspoons of Sea Salt
2. 1 Quart of warm (high quality and pure) water
Mix the above ingredients all together to create a nice solution.
That is all there is to creating the Salt Water Flush solution.
What if The Salt Water Flush Doesn’t Work?
The thing to remember is that this solution works for anyone that gives it a go.
But every person out there is a little different and so you may need to vary the amount of salt that you put into the solution until you get it to the right amount for you. So if the two teaspoons isn’t working then experiment with a little more until you get the desired bowel movements :)
It is equally important to remember to never use iodized table salt… organic non iodized sea salt is the best option.
Cleaning Out Your Body With The Salt Water Flush
Once the solution is mixed, put the cap of the bottle on and shake it like a nutter.
Once mixed up, open the cap and do your best to drink it up all in one go.
Now this will be a little challenging at first because the solution tastes horrible and your stomach has become extremely small due to you not eating any solids.
But believe me no matter how hard it is the best thing to do is tilt your head back and keep drinking until you get the desired result… which is to finish the bottle all in one go!
Of course you don’t have to drink it all up in one go but it is certainly the best option and you want to minimize the amount you actually taste the drink.
Do whatever suits you best…
Some Helpful Tips In Regards To The Salt Water Flush
Of course don’t just sit there waiting for the call of nature once you have drunk the solution but instead go about your day until you feel the urge to go to the toilet.
There are some people out there who have said that laying down on their right side actually helps to speed up the whole process but honestly I’ve tried this and it hasn’t done anything for more… but of course you’re more than welcome to try it yourself.
Some Things You Should Expect From Doing The Salt Water Flush
Make sure that you never go running off to the bathroom the moment you feel a grumble in your tummy.
Let your stomach stir a little and hold it in. While this may seem a little strange to you it is a really important step, you must not forget. You need to let the pressure build up.
The reality is that you may end up going to the toilet about 3 – 7 times, and in the end you will have expelled all the salt water that you drank in the first place.
Yes, that’s right all the salt water will disapear and come out of you.
Will The Salt Water Flush Cause Dehydration?
The simple answer is NO.
The reason being is that the salt water solution you drink can’t be digested by your body. Salt water by itself can’t be digested by your system so you won’t have an issue.
So you are literally going to be expelling the whole solution you drank just moments ago.
The first couple of days of doing this salt water flush you will be expelling all the solid food waste that was in your system from the last couple of days.
So I hope this article has shown you how powerful the salt water flush can actually be in your quest to cleanse out your body. All the junk and filth that has been lying in your body for years will slowly but surely be removed.
When you feel like you are done, you should not feel like it is completely over.
While you are waiting around to see if you need to go to the toilet again be sure to NOT fart. Farting most likely will not just be air that is released! So please be careful.
This point is something that you are going to want to take very seriously from now on. Farting is a no, no when you are on the cleanse.
Once you are done, I’d recommend that you flush the toilet straightaway. What’s there will be quite horrific to look at.
Once you are able to go about 15 minutes without going to the toilet then you should be okay to go about your day to do whatever you wish.
So obviously this whole process requires that you are a little flexible for time so if you are busy in the morning needing to go to work then I’d recommend that you do it in the evening when you have a little more spare time.
At the end of the day while the salt water flush is probably the worst part of the whole Master cleanse / Lemonade diet process it is really essential if you want to really and truly get rid of every last toxin that is within your body.
