Salt Water Flush in the morning while doing The Master Cleanse to create a bowel movement and eliminate the toxins in your waste that is continually being eliminated during your cleanse. Since you’re not eating any solid food, you’ll need to create a bowel movement, and the Saltwater Flush will do that. You can, and should also do a laxative at night. The Salt Water Flush is optional but I find it very helpful. Many people find it difficult, but if you watch the video below, you’ll learn some of the tips and technique to make the Salt Water Flush work for you.
2 Important Tips to make sure you do the Salt Water Flush right
- Make sure you don’t used iodized table salt. NON-iodized sea salt is essential.
- The Salt Water Flush MUST be done on an empty stomach.
The Salt Water Flush is very important. I suggest to do the SWF in the morning as it is suppose to be done on an empty stomach. The process is a commitment in itself. Once you take the solution, you will have to be on guard, a bowel movement WILL be shortly coming. I don’t mean in 5 or even 15 minutes, but generally in 30-60 minutes between taking it and the first movement. The last movements will begin to wind down an hour or so after they begin. This is a, ahem… crappy process, and there is really no way to sugar-coat it. The next few paragraphs will describe in detail what you can expect.

How to prepare the Salt Water Flush mixture:
Using 1 liter BPA Free Water Bottle and your teaspoon measure, mix a solution consisted of :

- Sea Salt - 2 teaspoons or 1 tablespoon
- And Pure Water – 1 quart of warm water
Mix a solution of sea salt and room temperature water.
The original book says 2 teaspoons, but I have used 1 tablespoon almost every time and it works for me the same. The last time I did the cleanse, I tried it each way (once with 2 teaspoon and then again with 1 tablespoon), and each time I had success.
What if it doesn’t work?
NOTE: There have been many questions about this process. The fact is, however much some claim it hasn’t worked for them, it can work for absolutely everyone. The key is to adjust the amount of salt in order to create the right solution for your individual needs. Also make sure you don’t used iodized table salt. Un-iodized organic sea salt is essential.
Flush your system with the Salt Water Flush
Shake it well and move to the sink. I like to “pound it” – perhaps because I like to pretend I am still in college and the sea salt is actually a keg stand. I also move into the bathroom and stand in front of the mirror. Somehow, by watching myself, I can manage to drink the whole liter in one try, spilling very little. This too is a challenge in itself, especially once your stomach has become very small from taking no solids.
Chances are, you will feel full halfway through, so just keep going. Stopping only makes you taste the salt, and will activate your gag reflex. While it is not required to drink the solution in one go, you will find that the taste is such that you will want to get it down quickly. It is not awful, but it is not exactly pleasant, and therefore I choose to get it over with. I also enjoy the little challenge.
Salt Water Flush Tips
After you have consumed the solution, you can go about your day until nature calls. Some suggest lying on your right hand side to aid the solution on its journey through your digestive track, although I don’t find this especially helpful and so I don’t bother. For some specific tips on how to get the Salt Water Flush ” down” that we have collected from our readers, read our related articles.
Now – what to expect when doing The Salt Water Flush.
When you first feel the rumble in your belly and your bowels, don’t go running off to the bathroom. Give it a while. Let it brew! Yeah, I know that is weird to think about, but you should let it build up. You are going to have 3-7 movements, possibly more. Generally speaking, you will end up pushing out what you put in. The entire liter of sea salt water will be immediately expelled.
Will the Salt Water Flush dehydrate me?
NO. This is because the solution is indigestible. You may have heard that, if you are stranded at sea, drinking sea water will only dehydrate you more. This is why. It just comes right out of you because the mixture has the same gravity as your blood and is not absorbed.
Of course, along with the sea salt, you will be expelling waste. During the first 2 days you will be moving out remaining solid matter in the digestive tract from the days prior to this.If you began your diet immediately, this will be more true than if you Eased-in, and therefore have only juice in your system. Nevertheless, for each day you will expel solid matter. Gross, to be certain, but also empowering. You really begin to understand the value of this process when you recognize the elimination of waste that has been stored in your body for months, even decades.
Once you feel you can no longer hold out, go to the bathroom. A word of warning while you wait for this moment. DO NOT FART!!! You will most certainly not pass only air – if you know what I mean. This is also true throughout the rest of your day. Don’t be fooled or you will be leaving work to change your shorts. The first movement will be rather large and fairly powerful. You will want to flush almost immediately. In order to understand the whole messy details, take a look… if you dare.
Stay close to a toilet and continue to move until the frequency eases. Once you can last 15 minutes without a serious movement, you are safe to go about your day. For this reason I choose to undergo this process in the evening, with nowhere else to go for the rest of the day. (Also, because I like to have a shower following, and truth be told, I am not exactly a morning person.) The Salt Water Flush isn’t exactly pleasant, but it’s critical to an effective detox.
