Salt Water Flush Recipe

If you are going to be doing the Cayenne Pepper Cleanse, then you also want to make sure that are you using the salt water flush as that is also part of the Master Cleanse. Unlike the batch of lemonade mix, you only drink the saltwater flush recipe once a day. Actually, I’m probably being generous when I saw drink, it is more like “choke it down”. It does not taste great, but you only need to use it once a day and it will do a lot of work to clear you right out. So just hold put your tastebuds on hold for a moment and swallow it down.

Master Cleanse Recipe Salt Water Flush

You are going to do the salt water flush when you get up in the morning. The salt water flush recipe is easy. All you need is:

  • One quart (32 ounces) of room temperature or lukewarm water;
  • Two level teaspoons of sea salt

Do not use regular table salt for this. You want to use non-iodized sea salt. Using table salt will not work as well at all. Also, if you find the taste of this drink truly distasteful, squeeze a little lemon or lime into it. It won’t do any harm and it will make drinking 32 ounces of the stuff a lot easier.

When to drink it
The Master Cleanse recipe salt water flush should really be done as soon as you get up in the morning, even before having something else to eat or drink. But there is one thing to keep in mind. You need to allow enough time for it to get through you. Most folks find that they will have to urgently make a bowel movement within 30 minutes of drinking the salt water cleanse, so you do not want to be drinking it before you have to run out the door to get the kids to school. You’ll want to be near a bathroom. Trust me.

Some users find that doing the salt water flush at night just works better for them. Burroughs recommends doing it in the morning, probably so that you have fully digested whatever you have eaten the day before, but since you will not be eating during the Master Cleanse salt flush, I don’t really see the harm in doing it at night instead if that is your only option. I recommend experimenting, but then I’m not a purist.

In The Master Cleanser, Dr. Burroughs suggests that you need to drink the full quart of fluid, but I personally do not think that you should force it down if you really cannot stand it. Try drinking a glass or two and see what happens. The idea behind the salt flush is to FLUSH you out. If 16 ounces does the trick there is no reason to drink more of it.

If you find that the sea salt cleanse recipe does not work for you or you just can’t make yourself drink it, try switching to a laxative tea. Burroughts recommends an herbal laxative tea such as senna. Normally you would drink this a night while following the Cayenne Pepper Cleanse, but you can also have it in the morning if you are electing to skip the salt water cleanse recipe.

There are quite a few alternative health practitioners who think the sea salt flush recipe is unnecessary while doing the Master Cleanse. And for some health conditions, it may be unwise as well, so like anything else related to your health, if you have some concerns you should clear them with your doctor before doing any kind of fasting or cleanse routine.

In addition to the salt water flush, I have also written up the details for the cayenne pepper cleanse recipe as well, so be sure to have all of your ingredients gathered together before you start, including your sea salt. It will make things so much easier.

    since i have high blood pressure do you still recommend the salt water flush or use the herbal laxative?

  2. admin says:

    I can’t really recommend one way or the other. Your best bet is to check with your doctor.

  3. Jessica says:

    I have looked over the salt water and cayenne pepper cleanse.. And I am just trying to get all the facts straight.
    Cleanse is for 10 days
    Flush in the morning
    Lemonade throughout the day
    and then a laxative tea is ideal before going to bed?
    And no other food to eat? ( I am asking bc in your first sentence of the paragraph “when to drink” it says before eating) I plan to start this on Monday I just want to make sure I will be doing this correctly?

  4. admin says:

    Hi Jessica,
    Sorry about the confusion. You have it right. You would do the flush in the morning before you have any of the lemonade drink. That is really what I meant by having it before you eat. Some people also do only a modified Master Cleanse, where they use the lemonade drink combined with a raw food or fruit diet. But Burroughs recommded that you just follow it as is — which means no additional food.

    Good luck!

    Is it okay to drink it at night?

  6. Paige says:

    I cant get my hands on any Cayenne pepper… is there any other pepper i can use?

  7. adrianne says:

    Is it advised to work out while on this cleanse? Or are you supposed to rest as much as you can?

  8. adrianne says:

    also, how often do most people do this cleanse? once a year?

  9. Kim says:

    How much of the lemonade do we need to drink during the day?

  10. giselle says:

    Hello, today is my 6th day. I did the sea salt flush at night on the 3rd day. I am planning on doing the sea salt flush tonight and the rest of my remainding days at night. Will that be a problem or will it still work if I do it at night?

  11. admin says:

    Some people do it that often. Some people probably just do it once and never again LOL

  12. admin says:

    I would rest. You are not getting very many calories here.

  13. Liz says:

    With each cleanse & each person its different. I always feel like I have so much energy that if I don’t work out it gets pent up. Just do what feels best to you & your body. Then once you’ve done one or two like myself you can have fun & look forward to it! To all of your health!

  14. Lorenzo says:

    I have started 5 days ago and plan to finish after 7 days with 1 litre and moved to 1.5 but I will be going back to 1 as it is too much. However I am eating light, I need the food as I do approx 15 hours per week of cycling. My intention is to clean the intestine/colon. However I have put on approx 2kg in the process. Guess is the salt? How long will it last and is it fine to do this for a full week?

  15. Asha says:

    I went to an organic store and she gave me Himalayan salt. Is it ok to use that?

  16. darwe says:

    Himalayan salt is THE BEST salt to use for everything.(research the internet to see why)

  17. iseemtonotlooseweight says:

    will you loose weight on the salt water flush if so how many pounds in a week.i need to loose 2 stones in 2 weeks what else can i do??
    please get back to me

  18. admin says:

    The salt water flush isn’t a weight loss diet. It’s just to clean out your bowels. You cannot possibly lose 28 lbs in two weeks on any type of diet.

  19. David says:

    The salt water in these levels wont cause retention. The recipe @ these levels are so the salt concentration matches your body’s dissolved solids concentration, what is called “Normal Saline” in medical circles.

    The purpose of the flush is to clear out the accumulation of stuff that adheres to the sides of your bowels, not to loose weight. It is possible to lose weight on the total Master Cleanse program, but I agree with the Admin that you won’t lose 28 lbs in 2 weeks, unless you have a great deal of weight to lose, on the order of 100 lbs…

  20. Chriset says:

    I can’t find cayenne or real maple syrup here in Mexico so im going to drink a lot of fresh fruit juices, also im doing it with a couple friends and i reccomended doing the cleanse/flush until the flush comes out clean. what do you think?

  21. Erin says:

    can i use cold water rather than lukewarm water for the sea salt flush? this will work even if im not on master cleanse right?

  22. Nita says:

    So the process for Master Cleanse is for 10 days
    In the morning – 32 oz salt water to drink
    During the day – lemonade with Cayonne pepper -wants to find out his much to drink ?
    At night – herbal tea
    Pls let me know if this is the right process.
    Also by doing this can we have any energy to do any other work b’use we r not eating anything . Pls share your experience . Thanks.

  23. kavita says:

    If I do the salt water flush at night, when should I take my dose of herbal laxative pills? How often should I take it?

  24. tom says:

    you’re supposed to take laxative tea at night, salt water flush in the morning. i personally hate the salt water flush and usually only make myself do it about half the time. if you want to do the flush at night (which i personally can’t imagine seeing how many bathroom visits are usually required), you can do the laxative tea in the morning. don’t bother taking them together as the flush will most likely take the tea or pill with it.

    over 16 hours or so, however long you stay active during the day, i usually drink about six servings of the 2Tablespoon lemon juice, 2TB maple syrup, 1/10 Teaspoon cayenne. i usually take 2 one-liter bottles and put 3 servings each in there. it’s better to wait to fill with water until ready to drink because of enzyme life, but if you don’t have a choice, you don’t have a choice. if you are going to be awake and active longer than this, make extra mix or bring the raw ingredients with you. you’re encouraged to exercise to help get rid of more toxins. just make sure you drink extra lemonade/syrup to get enough calories and water to help move out the toxins.

    while weight loss shouldn’t be the goal of this cleanse, i usually lose about two pounds a day until i hit 170, then stop losing weight. i’m 6’0″ tall.

    non-iodized sea salt is the recommended salt. i’m not sure if himalayan works or not, but you can always try. if the liter of salt water flushes through you quickly, bringing other stuff with it, it works. if not, go grab some sea salt.

    cayenne pepper is easy to find at supermarkets or online. the maple syrup (organic grade B) is a bit harder to find. trader joe’s usually has it though.

    how much of the salt water flush do i have to drink?

  26. Leslie says:

    how much of the slat water flush do i have to drink a day?

  27. margie says:

    HI – this is my 3rd time doing the cleanse… .the first two times I quit on day 4…. and I am about to do the same thing. ( I am on day 4). I can probably get thru it that is not the problem. My problem is I feel 100% cleansed. There is nothing inside me at all. The salt water flush (which I can do with no problems at all) runs clear. I have nothing in my bowels. Can someone advise me if I should stop or go on? I feel, for me at least, that it would be detramental to go further as nothing is left to cleanse (or so I feel). I live a pretty toxic free life normally – could it just be that what is supposed to happen in 10 days happens to me in 4? any advice would be great… I would love to talk to someone. thanks!

  28. Sam says:

    Good article. Today is my 16th day and feeling great, I was trying to drink 32oz of salt water and couldn’t take it and switched to laxative tea. Not sure it is healthy to continue on laxative tea for a long time. I am planning to continue this diet for another week or two. I experiment with your suggestions (less quantity and drinking in the evening, etc).
