Salt Water Ingredients and Instructions
Figure 2: Level the salt with a straight edge.
On a fasted stomach first thing in the morning before eating or drinking anything, drink one quart of tepid water into which you have measured exactly two teaspoons of regular table salt. The measurements must be exact. Measure the water into a measuring cup or a jug with a quart mark (.95 liter) clearly indicated; measure the salt by placing it into a measuring teaspoon and then leveling it off with the straight, back edge of a knife. (See Figures 1 and 2.) Some teaspoons are full teaspoons when they are rounded. Be sure the teaspoon you are using is meant to be leveled off.
Drink the quart of salt water in about ten minutes. You do not have to “chug” it but neither should you sip it for a half hour. Stay near a bathroom, because a short time later the salt water will be eliminated through your bowels and colon carrying waste material with it.
The Gritty Details
Figure 3: Simplified representation of Alimentary Canal
The salt water mixture has the same salt content as the other saline fluids in your body, like blood, tears and sweat, and therefore passes through it without being absorbed or retained. When the body recognizes the salt water as an extra “portion,” if you will, of waste‑eliminating fluid, it says, “Great. I think I will use it to help eliminate all this waste that is accumulating in here.” Once it dumps the waste matter into the salt water, it flows out of you mixed along with a lot of junk. After that waste is gone, which may take as long as a few months, the body starts cleaning on a cellular level.
The digestive tract is a pressurized system. The capacity of the stomach is about two cups (.47 liter) liquid. After drinking one-half of the quart of salt water (two cups), the pressure created in the stomach opens the valve between the stomach and small intestines (see Figure 3). At this point the salt water flows into the small intestines and begins its cleaning work there. After drinking two more cups and finishing the quart, the further pressure from the additional two cups opens the valve between the small intestines and the large intestines, and the salt water begins its cleaning work in the large intestines. Eventually the water is eliminated through the colon, taking a lot of garbage with it.
Figure 4: Intestinal wall and villi.
The reason we want the digestive system to be clean is so that it can absorb nutrition. Nutrition from most food, after digestion, is absorbed into the blood stream through the walls of the small intestines*, which are lined with small, hair-like brushes called villi. The spaces between the villi are where nutrition is absorbed. These spaces must be free of waste material in order for vitamins, minerals and nutrients to pass between them, through the intestinal walls and into the blood stream. When the salt water cleans out the spaces between the villi, nutrition can be absorbed as it should.
More FAQ’s, More Answers
“Should I take it every day?” Yes, if possible. In addition to promoting healing, most likely will find you have more energy, feel better, are less prone to many illnesses, including obesity.
“What if the salt water does not come out my colon?” It’s OK; it only means your kidneys need flushing. Keep taking it; eventually your kidneys will be flushed and it will start to work on your digestive tract.
“How long do I have to wait before I can eat breakfast?” Because it takes five minutes or less for the salt water to pass out of the stomach and into the small intestines, you can eat breakfast five minutes after finishing the quart of salt water.
“Can I use sea salt or other non-refined salt?” Yes, as long as it is granulated and measures the same as ordinary salt.
“Can I use purified water?” Yes, as long as it does not contain any food substances like lemon juice, protein, or other additives.
I have been using the salt water purge every day for the past 30 years. I feel it is no coincidence that the last time I saw a doctor was...30 years ago.
