Salt Water Morning Flush Recipe

This quick and easy, cleansing recipe is a great addition to your morning if you struggle with digestion, energy, or reflux.

Consumed first thing, it acts as an alkalizer, cleanser, re-mineralizer, and all-round super-support to your digestive system.

It provides your body with dozens of trace alkaline minerals and acts as a cleanser for your colon and digestive system.

Be warned: it is effective! Consume at home!

The crucial element in a salt water flush recipe is, of course, salt. It’s necessary for many biochemical processes. When you drink a salt mixture, it jumpstarts the body’s natural detoxification and waste elimination processes thus aiding your digestive system to get back on track. Plus, as an added bonus, you’ll probably feel lighter and less sluggish overall.

What Salt to Use?

Forget regular table salt and any salt that has added iodine. You want natural, high-quality, mineral-rich salt. Sodium chloride has had all the goodness stripped out and is not alkaline forming or good for you at all.

Celtic sea salt or pink Himalayan salt is the way to go.

These salts contain up to 90 different trace minerals that are all incredibly beneficial.

  • Chloride specifically helps with muscle and nerve function.
  • Sodium also acts in muscle function and helps regulate your blood volume and pressure.
  • Potassium is another important macro-mineral that works with chloride to help regulate acid levels in your body.
  • Iron & zinc to make enzymes involved in metabolism
  • Phosphorus as a structural component of bones, teeth, and cell membranes, as well as for energy production.
  • Magnesium intervenes in energy production and the synthesis of RNA and DNA.
  • Calcium helps give structure to your bones and teeth, in addition to regulating your heartbeat and normal muscle and nerve function.

These key minerals, existing in very small portions, are necessary to regulate optimal function in your body.

  • Author: Ross Bridgeford
  • Prep Time: 1
  • Cook Time: 4
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1x


  • 2 teaspoons of Himalayan or Celtic sea salt
  • 1 liter of hot filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
  • Glass jar with a lid or bottle with lid


  1. Bring your water to a heat on the stove, but not boiling – hot enough to dissolve the salt
  2. Put the water, lemon and salt into your jar and give it a good shake to get that salt dissolved.
  3. Drink the mixture quickly, like you would a tea, within a 2-3 minutes
  4. Relax.  Some find it comfortable, if you have quite bad digestive issues or constipation to lay down on your side


Important: within a short time after finishing the drive you might feel the need to go to the bathroom – so consume this at HOME.  Don’t have it out and about and on the go.  It does have a flushing mechanism, and it does work!

    I’ve done this flush several times over many years and yes, it’s VERY effective. I would strongly suggest that keeping the following 2-3 hours free so that you can remain close to the bathroom as there will be a series of eliminations.
    And be gentle with what you eat afterwards.

    The recipe I follow also encourages the following:
    Lie on your right side (I guess because the colon runs right to left)
    Try to ‘hold on’ for at least 20 mins for initial elimination.

    And as a precaution I lie on an old towel. And keep a couple of others handy – just in case 😏

    Wow, do you feel good afterwards 🤗🤗🤗🤗
