Natural unrefined salts like Himalayan pink salt have a different mineral composition in comparison with white table salt. It contains 84 trace minerals elements that make it incredibly nourishing for the body. Using Himalayan salt helps the body to detoxify, boost energy and to improve digestion. It goes beyond regular salt as it provides a boost of caffeine-free energy.
Himalayan salt can be used as a natural colon flush to cleanse the colon, treat chronic constipation and to help detoxify the body. Saltwater flush involves drinking a mixture of warm water and non-iodized salt. This mixture acts as a laxative and may induce bowel movement within an hour or more. The salt mixture initiates the process of waste removal and natural detoxification.
This method of salt flush is safe and a cheap way of cleansing the colon and getting rid of accumulated toxins in the body. The process helps remove toxins, old waste materials and parasites that may be lurking inside the colon. The saltwater flush is effective in the short term at cleansing the colon by inducing bowel movement.
Studies show that during the procedure, toxins are pulled into the colon and primed for removal by bowel movement. The salt water helps the colon in removing old fecal material and toxins from the body. This is particularly useful for people who suffer from severe constipation and experiencing irregular bowel movement.
It is advisable to carry out the procedure first thing in the morning or in the evening a few hours after eating. It is also highly important not to carry it out on an empty stomach. Research shows that toxins in the colon can lead to serious medical problems. Salt water colon flush is therefore important to boost immune function and energy levels. It also provides relief from digestive irritability, gas, bloating and cramping.
In order to achieve the best results from using Himalayan salt, it is important to make a saltwater mixture that is completely saturated to the point where no more salt can be dissolved. This saturated mixture is easier for the body to absorb. A saltwater flush involves mixing Himalayan salt with water. See procedure below:
- Add 2 teaspoons of Himalayan salt to 1 liter of water and stiring until dissolved
- Drink on an empty stomach
It is recommended to gulp the mixture in order to avoid the rather strong taste. Lemon can also be added to improve the taste. It is therefore important to have a washroom nearby for the following hours.
Colon flush will cause rapid bowel movement in the process of cleansing the colon. Unless there is a serious underlying medical condition, a single colon flush is unlikely to cause any serious harm. Don’t do this if you are pregnant.
