How to Perform a Salt Water Flush to Cleanse Your Colon

Did you know that during a colon cleanse, large amounts of water are flushed through the colon? According to Mayo Clinic, sometimes up to 16 gallons!

Before I go into the benefits of cleansing your colon and trying out a salt water flush, let me update you on my fast.

I’ve made a salad for my boyfriend, but he ended up staying at work later to chat with some coworkers. Unfortunately, that left me alone in the apartment with a delicious looking salad.

I kept myself busy by watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch episodes off youtube. There, I said it. Now you know where part of my witchy inspiration comes from.

Okay, let’s get right into the content…

Benefits of Cleansing Your Colon

If there was ever a point in time where you were not eliminating properly and regularly then there is a high probability that you’ve got junk in your colon’s trunk.

If you aren’t moving your bowels daily, preferably two or three times daily, depending on how many meals you eat, then you aren’t regular.

Of course you can solve this by eating more green leafy veggies, and starting with green smoothies will make that happen.

But you need to remember that all those days where you weren’t eliminating add up. Where does all that waste matter go? Well it can become dry caked-on fecal matter that just hangs out in your colon and causes you to gain weight and get sick. Lovely, huh?

That’s where colon cleansing comes in. There are a couple of colon cleansing options.

You can do home enemas. You can hire a hydrocolon therapist and have a colonic. Or, today’s suggestion is to try a salt water flush.

The Salt Water Flush Recipe

Here’s the key, you need to do this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. This is perfect while you’re fasting.

Here is the recipe:

  1. Mix 1 Liter (32 oz.) of warm water with 2 level teaspoons of unrefined sea salt. I used pink himalayan crystal salt. As long as it’s not iodized table salt, it should work.
  2. Shake or stir well, then drink the entire container of salt water. It might be hard to down, but I found that the second time was much easier.

This technique is an ancient Yogic cleansing method. I’ve also seen Chinese people do this in the morning, during my trip to China.

Do not perform this cleanse for more than 7 days in a row. Then give yourself weeks or months between the next flush you perform. You do not want to cause an imbalance in your body, and you don’t want to become dependent on the flush to evacuate your bowels.

Other Methods to Cleanse Your Colon

Another method you could give a shot is Dr Tobias Colon Quick Cleanse – I’ve been using that last few weeks and it works just perfect.
It would also help you detoxify your body, so give it a try!

Or you can try some of the best detox teas: EveryDay Detox Tea or Yogi Detox Tea won’t just cleanse your colon but also give you a bunch of other benefits.

What To Expect After

The salt water’s saliency is the same as the body’s saliency. So none of the water gets absorbed into the body, and it just passes right through you and out through your colon.

It is recommended to wait about 30 minutes after you’ve drank the salt water before going to the bathroom.

You’ll start to feel your bowel moving as the salt water moves through you. You might even hear some gurgling sounds.

When you do go to the bathroom, the feeling might be reminiscent of diarrhea. Though those of you who have experienced a colonic will know it just feels like evacuating water through the colon.

You might need to go to the bathroom more than once, so only do this flush if you’ll have access to a bathroom nearby.

My Experience with the Salt Water Flush

Yesterday I tried the salt water flush for the first time, and today I did it again. I prepared my salt water and drank it first thing in the morning.

Then I made my first batch of lemonade, and got ready for my day. By the time I was done showering, it was time to evacuate the salt water.

It definitely felt good, kind of like I felt after I had a colonic. I went to the bathroom three times, and each time the matter got more solid and less watery. I gave myself gentle tummy massages that seemed to help, so give that a try too.

Hopefully this whole post hasn’t been too graphic with all of this “potty talk”.

Thanks for reading! I hope I’ve opened your mind to the concept of colon cleansing. Remember that there are many different ways of cleansing your colon.

You can ensure you don’t need to cleanse as often by starting with a healthy high raw diet diet full of fiber.
