Salt Water Bath - NOT WHAT YOU THINK

A spoon full of salt keeps the doctor away!
Many of my clients are taught the internal salt water bath.  I have to laugh because most people think I am talking about a hot soak in a bath.  It is a great tool to learn...might just as well replace a colonic, but there are differences.  

My preference is the Internal Salt Water Bath as I have used it for many years successfully.  I give thanks to Stanley Burroughs for sharing it.  I have also completed the Master Cleanse a number of should buy the book before attempting this because I find most people are not doing it correctly.

I coach people to do the Internal Salt Water Bath, the Master Cleanse and a 7 Day Raw Food Detox (plus a Nutritional Cleanse and Replenishing Program) and more BUT your priority should be to create a healthy lifestyle of good quality food otherwise you might be creating a yo-yo effect.

Note: How you think and the level of stress you have at the time, may make a difference to the results.

As it is necessary to bathe the outside of our bodies, so it is with the inside. Do not take enemas or colonics at any time during the cleansing diet or afterwards. They are unnecessary and can be extremely harmful.

There is a much superior method of cleansing the colonic tract without the harmful effects of customary colonics and enemas. This method will cleanse the entire digestive tract while the colonics and enemas will only reach the colon or a small part of it.  Colonics can be expensive while our salt water method is not.

DIRECTIONS: Prepare a full quart of lukewarm water and add two level (rounded for Canadian quart) teaspoons of uniodized sea salt. Do not use ordinary iodized salt as it will not work properly. Drink the entire quart of salt and water first thing in the morning. This must be taken on an empty stomach. The salt and water will not separate but will stay intact and quickly and thoroughly wash the entire tract in about one hour. Several eliminations will likely occur. The salt water has the same specific gravity as the blood, hence the kidneys cannot pick up the water and the blood cannot pick up the salt. This may be taken as often as needed for proper washing of the entire digestive system.

If the salt water does not work the first time, try adding a little more or a little less salt until the proper balance is found; or possibly take extra water with or without salt. This often increases the activity. Remember, it can do no harm at any time. The colon needs a good washing, but do it the natural way – the salt water way.

It is quite advisable to take the herb laxative tea at the night to loosen, then the salt water each morning to wash it out. For Master Cleanse: If not some reason the salt water cannot be taken in the morning, then the herb laxative tea must be taken night and morning.

Cheryl’s Comments
I have performed this dozens of times over the past 20 years.  Drink fluid within 10-20 minutes and use a straw if the water tastes too salty for you.  Have a light meal (salad, veggies, etc.) the night before and don't eat late.  Once you learn and experience it, you can add it to your tool box of keeping the colon clean.  For more information and support, please contact me.  

I highly recommend the book as it is short and explains more (i.e. its safety, health benefits, etc.).

  1. Cheryl I have done many types of cleanses. I did the internal salt cleanse today and like it. It is better than enemas which I have done a lot in the last few months.

  2. Dear Michael,
    Thank you for your feedback. My feelings exactly.
    I would be curious as to why you were doing a number of enemas recently. Please feel free to respond here or email me
    Best of health,
