Ayurvedic Saltwater Flush Directions
Himalayan Sole Drink Therapy utilizes an Ayurvedic Saltwater Flush Treatment principle that promotes overall intestinal health, healthy digestion, and is said to detoxify the body, and enhance energy . This is one of several salt treatment principles commonly used in ancient Ayurveda, as well as one of the beneficial alternative therapy uses of Himalayan Salt. This treatment can also be a beneficial, natural aid in any weight management plan.
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian practice used for thousands of years, possibly 4,000 or more, utilizing natural elements, herbs, and foods to help the body to heal its self. This natural medicinal practice is still used around the world today for it’s time tested and proven results in healing the body and maintaining optimal body system functions.
One of the most common causes of poor intestinal health is a lack of good bacteria in the digestive system, which can eventually lead to illness. If the digestive system is not in proper working order, the entire body will eventually be negatively effected. Overloaded with bacteria or other potentially harmful intestinal inhabitants, such as Candida Yeast, the bodies’ digestive system becomes unable to properly absorb and process essential nutrients, as well as properly eliminate toxins, and other waste. With these conditions present, the body eventually begins to experience various ailments and maladies, including weight gain.
Unfortunately, the hectic, busy lifestyles most of us lead these days makes eating properly difficult at best. Over time the large quantities of sugar, yeast and other unhealthy dietary components we consume each day creates an imbalance in our digestive systems. All of this eventually leads us to struggle with our health, and our weight.
When needed, salt water flush promotes healthy digestion by reducing the level of harmful bacteria, and yeast, giving the good bacteria a chance to take hold, and regain a healthy balance. A well-balanced digestive system promotes healthy weight, energy, and water levels.
According to ancient Ayurvadia:
Performing a salt water flush is an exceptional way of cleansing the entire digestive system, from the stomach to the intestinal tract. This therapy works without the potentially harmful effects of modern colonics and enemas, as well as the discomfort, and inconvenience of these treatments. Flushing the digestive system with salt water enables natural repair of the system, and restoration of regular levels of healthy bacteria for proper digestion and absorption of nutrients. Salt water flush is a safe, effective, and natural way of drawing toxins from the body, and cleansing the entire intestinal tract, which is why it has been a common treatment for digestive system ailments for thousands of years in Ayurveda, as well as other ancient cultures.
AYURVEDA Saltwater Flush directions:
- 2 level teaspoons Himalayan Salt
- 1 quart lukewarm water
- Mix water and salt together in a glass or jar, stirring until the salt is dissolved completely.
- Drink the entire quart of salt water first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach.
Drink the entire quart of salt water first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach. After drinking the saltwater you should recline (lie down) on your right side for 30 minutes. Afterwards you may go about your day as usual, however you should be prepared to have a fluid bowel movement within 1 to 2 hours, though this time frame may vary from person to person.
*Alternatively, if you do not have time for a flush or do not want to perform a full flush, you can take 1 tsp or 5ml of the salt solution every morning before breakfast (on an empty stomach). Be sure to follow this up during the rest of your day by drinking plenty of water, at least 8 glasses per day. This will help the body’s natural healing process from the inside, promoting bodily detoxification and enhanced energy.
Organic, unprocessed sea salt such as Himalayan Salt is recommended as it does not contain anti-caking agents, preservatives, gluten or other additives. Himalayan Pink Salt also has the added advantage of having been created and stored deep within the Himalayan Mountains for millions of years, which has preserved the salt leaving it untouched by modern environmental toxins and pollutants . This wonderful salt, often times referred to as “the purest salt on earth”, contains extra essential minerals which are easily absorbed and processed by the body with a mellow, yet rich salt flavor that is more palatable than other salts, thus making it the perfect salt for use in a saltwater flush.
*Important: In addition to this treatment, it is recommended that you follow up with a daily regimen of probiotics to help to repopulate the digestive system with good flora and bacteria for optimal digestive system health. Suprema Dophilus Multi Probiotic is an excellent product for this purpose, containing 25 billion probiotics per serving. This is a great follow up to a salt water flush for enhanced digestion, as well as increased immune system health! Fasttrack is also a fantastic probiotic available from many vendors online.
If you suffer from Candida Yeast overgrowth, commonly displayed in symptoms such as yellow fingernails and/or toenails, underarm rash, gas, bloating, general digestive malaise, vaginal yeast infection, and/or thrush, you may also want to take High Energy Solutions Candida Cleanse Supplement, available at Amazon. When taken properly, this supplement effectively rids the body of yeast infection, however you should always include a good probiotic in your daily routine.
