Feeling constipated most of the time? Try taking sea salt water as a part of your master cleanse diet on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning.
Why use salt water?
Over the last decade, a salt water flush has been used to remove all waste from your colon.
Salt water does not get absorbed by kidneys or blood, so it passed through the body quickly, eliminating waste build-up. You should be using the bathroom within an hour of drinking it, and possibly again later. You should feel lighter and more energetic!
Try this saltwater cleanse recipe.
- Two teaspoons of sea salt.
- One litre of drinking water.
- Two tablespoons of fresh lemon juice.
Heat up water but not till it boils. Add it to the salt and add lemon juice (lemon cuts the salty taste) in a glass jar. Put a lid on and shake the jar to dissolve all the salt granules well. Drink it quickly and lay down to your side for 30 minutes, rubbing your belly to help your body absorb the salt better.
It is best to use pink Himalayan salt (or gray salt). The label should read: ‘Pure Himalayan Natural Rock Salt’.
DO NOT use table salt or normal iodised salt.
Then introduce foods back, slowly – one at a time.
Why do a master cleanse?
Doctors advise doing a full cleanse of the small intestines before a colonoscopy. And there are good reasons for doing a master cleanse with salt water now and then, such as:
- Colon Cleanse
- Weight Loss
But do not overdo it; this means no more than once a week. The health and wellness benefits are huge! You not only get rid of constipation, a clean colon and your digestion back on track, you reduce belly flab, inflammation, and feel better. A tummy detox is also the first step to fix a leaky gut. The wellness benefits of a gut cleanse include:
- Improve digestion
- Increase energy
- Improve mood
- Reduce belly fat
- Fix a leaky gut
- Balances systemic pH
- Reduces muscle cramps
- Boost heart health
- Lower blood sugar
Before you start a master cleanse:
Check with your doctor and if he says you should not drink so much salt, then avoid it. But if you are on a master cleanse programme, introduce healthy and light foods slowly and drink plenty of water after it is done. You will need to take a probiotic supplement (good gut bacteria) for a healthy internal gut flora (microbiome) for essential nutrients and electrolyte balance.
Master cleanse diets may have these side effects:
- Blood pressure fluctuation.
- Aches and pains.
- Some people may experience mood swings and irritability due to energy fluctuations.
While detoxing, you can add laxative herbal tea and plenty of water.
But avoid supplements, vitamins, alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, and drugs.
If salt is not your cup of tea, you can try another amazing master cleanse drink using apple cider vinegar. This will be our next natural detox recipe.
