The Sea Salt Flush: What It Does and Does Not Do
The popular new sea salt flush can be good for digestive health, but should not be considered a cureall, and should not be used for more than seven days at a time. It does not remove all toxins from the body, but can help flush digetive residues.
Among the most popular dieting and detoxification trends out there today is the sea salt flush. Essentially, this consists of taking 32 ounces of distilled or reverse osmosis filtered water and adding two teaspoons of sea salt, then consuming rapidly. From here, the body responds very quickly, and the bowels begin to move.
Some argue that the sea salt flush removes toxins from the body. This is both true and not true. The sea salt flush removes feces that in some cases may have been present within the body for a long period of time due to poor diet, lack of exercise, or constipation. So in that sense, yes, toxins within these feces will be flushed from the body.
With that said, however, it is important to understand that the sea salt flush does not take toxins out of other areas of the body, such as the bloodstream, or other tissues and organs like the liver and kidneys and flush them from the body. To accomplish a full body detox of this nature, you will need the help of a natural detox product, and naturopathic remedies like milk thistle, turmeric, cayenne, garlic, ginger, and many others, along with a great deal of water.
A sea salt flush can be a great quick fix for those in need of lower gastrointestinal tract relief, but it is not advised for detoxification on the whole because it does not cleanse organs, neither does it flush toxins or residues from fat cells, and this is where the flush is needed most for those trying to pass a urine test.
Many proponents of the sea salt flush are somewhat naïve about its powers, but that’s not to say it doesn’t have benefits. Many familiar with this type of body cleanse will do it once every six months for seven days, typically at the start of each day on an empty stomach for best results. It is always best to let your physician know you are engaging in a detox regimen or using a cleanser, even if it is to pass a drug test—your doctor must uphold patient confidentiality by law, so your personal history is not a matter of public record.
If your aim is a complete body detox, a sea salt flush is perhaps a good first step, but does not cleanse the whole body. The next step would be to continue a raw food diet, and later engage a detox program that focuses on all systems of the body.
