Salt Water Flush Recipe

Are you like 20 percent of the public that suffers from constipation? It’s nothing to be ashamed about, so even if high-fiber foods don’t always do the trick, consider a salt water flush. Sometimes called a “salt water cleanse” or a “master cleanse,” it’s designed to help you cleanse your colon and digestive system by bringing on a forced bowel movement. - Retreived from Dr. Axe website.



  • 2 teaspoons of sea salt

  • glass jar with a lid

  • 1 liter of hot filtered water

  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice or one cup of lemon water


  1. Heat up your water but not to boiling

  2. Add your ingredients into the jar and put the lid on. Shake it vigorously to fully dissolve the salt. Make sure no granules are visible.

  3. Drink the mixture quickly, within a few minutes if possible (under 5 min is the goal).

  4. Lay down on your side and massage your belly on one side, then repeat on the other side. If you can manage to hold in the solution for about 30 minutes this will help your body fully absord the salt.

  5. Within a short time after finshing the mixture you should start to feel the urge to go to the bathroom.

  6. Once you feel you can no longer hold out, go to the bathroom. You might have to go more than one time, sometimes needing to use the bathroom for several hours before you're fully "cleansed" and your colon is emptied.
