Salt Water Cleanse.

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

Ok. So I did the "Master Cleanse" before I got pregnant with my daughter and it was HARD but I did feel some effects of it [not to mention i was already like 500 xs healthier then], so I think I'm up for another cleanse now. I'm not doing the Master Cleanse because it requires living off of a liquid diet for 10 days and um.. thats like IMPOSSIBLE considering the hectic life I lead... plus theres no way I could come home and cook dinner for my fiance and not totally drool all over his food if I was drinking lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper... yeahhh. lol

All you do with the salt water cleanse is... well... drink salt water! Its a simple mixture... 2 tsps salt per quart of water. Get up at like 5 am.... drink the whole mixture... wait for it to clean out your digestive system. [aka bowel movement] and go about your day. They just recommend bland or natural foods you would feed to a baby because your intestines will be taken back to their original form [like when you were a baby]. You do that for 10 days and supposedly feel a million times better, more energy, etc. So I'm going to give it a go. :)

If anyones tried this I'm open to suggestions. All I've really found so far is like I said, eat natural, and drink lotsss of water so your body isn't holding onto the salt afterwards.

Wish me luck!

    It says you're supposed to use sea salt - not regular table salt. Wasn't sure if you knew that already. Apparently this is an ayurvedic technique? I don't really know about it, but I certainly prefer the idea of a cleanse that includes food! A high fiber diet will also help clean out your system. Good luck!
