This is a 2 part question. Is there something else I can do besides the salt water flush? And, is it Really Necessary? Do I have to do it at all? And for both questions my answer is the same.
The top alternative is to NOT DO IT. It’s optional.
Besides that there isn’t really an alternative. There are some tips to make it easier (covered here). You can substitute the salt. You can’t remove the water. Not much to work with. So if you just can’t take it, stick with the laxative detox tea.
Keep in mind why you need to salt water flush
The Master Cleanse, a liquid only juice fast, doesn’t contain any fibre, and therefore no natural bowel movements will occur since it’s fibre that engages our digestion, and the process of peristalsis, (waves of muscle contractions in our digestive track), which passes our food along the disassembly line digestive system.
So we need to hack our system to create an elimination because while taking the lemonade diet, the lemon cleanses and the fast purges and stirs up massive amounts of waste, and stored toxins we need to get rid of, largely through our colon. The Salt Water Flush is a unique and perfectly suited hack as the salt water passes quickly through acting as an top-down enema of sorts.
The salt water flush should work for you. Just make sure follow the instructions exactly.
And it works really well once you find a trick to get it down easier. Well, it doesn't have to be super easy does it? Not all thing in life are easy?
