DIY Colon Cleanse: Try This Sea Salt Flush to Ease Constipation

So here’s a not-so-fun fact. Twenty percent of the U.S. population suffers from constipation. Consuming high-fiber foods typically does the trick. But, if you’re looking for another route, consider a sea salt flush. Sometimes called a “salt water cleanse” or a “master cleanse,” it’s designed to help cleanse your colon and digestive system by bringing on a forced bowel movement.

Lemon Water Sea Salt Flush Solution in Glass Mug | Vitacost.com/BlogWhat is a sea salt flush?

The key element in a sea salt flush recipe is salt itself, as it’s needed for many biochemical processes. The official sea salt flush has become more popular over the past decade as a “hack” to facilitate digestion and cleansing as part of a kick-start when doing a “master cleanse” program. Drinking a salt mixture ignites the body’s own mechanism of natural detoxification and waste elimination, helping get your digestive system back on track and in the process making you feel lighter, less sluggish and less weighed-down.

When to do a sea salt flush

The salt water flush is most effective when performed first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. If done later in the day, make sure you haven’t eaten anything in the past one to two hours. To perform a simple sea salt flush at home, start with 2 teaspoons of sea salt, which can be colored salt, such as Himalayan pink salt or “gray salt.” (Make sure it’s pure salt, not iodinated salt.)

How to make a sea salt flush

Heat 1 liter of filtered water so it’s warmer than room temperature, but not boiling or very hot. It should be cooler than the temp used to brew tea or coffee. Grab a glass jar with a lid and add salt, hot water, and some fresh lemon juice or lemon water (which helps cut the taste of the salt). Shake it vigorously to fully dissolve the salt. Make sure no granules are visible, which will settle at the bottom of your jar/lid if they’re still undissolved.

How to take a sea salt flush

Drink the mixture quickly, within a few minutes if possible (under 5 minutes is the goal). Since it doesn’t taste great (it’s very salty!), you will probably want to drink it down as fast as you can. Lay down on your side and massage your belly on one side, then repeat on the other side. Holding in the mixture for at least 30 minutes is ideal. Within a short time after finishing the mixture, you should start to feel the urge to go to the bathroom. 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 several times before you’re fully “cleansed” and your colon is emptied. After doing a cleanse of any kind, it’s a good idea to take a probiotic supplement and load up on healthy foods, which helps establish healthy bacteria in your internal gut flora (microbiome) and provide you essential nutrients and electrolytes.

DIY Sea Salt Flush

  • 2 tsp. Celtic sea salt
  • 1 liter hot filtered water
  • Tbsp. fresh lemon juice or 1 cup lemon water
  • Glass jar with a lid
  1. Heat water (do not boil). Pour into jar.
  2. Add sea salt and lemon juice (or lemon water if using). Seal with lid and shake vigorously until salt fully dissolves and no granules are visible.
  3. Drink mixture quickly, within a few minutes if possible (under 5 minutes is the goal).
  4. Lay down on your side and massage 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 absorb the salt.
  5. Within a short time after finishing 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 times before you’re fully “cleansed” and your colon is emptied.
