This effective and simple remedy resolved my issues with acne that I suffered with for over 10 years!
I remember looking in the mirror when I was 10 years old and seeing small bumps all over the center of my forehead and wondering what the heck they were. Little did I know that these small bumps were the very beginning of a 10 year battle with facial acne. I struggled with extremely oily skin, and would go through cycles of black heads, white heads, and cystic acne along my jaw line.
Kids these days are experiencing puberty at such early ages, and acne happens to be a symptom of these changes. However, gut ecology and hormonal changes absolutely influence what is displaying on the largest organ of the body, the skin!
If the gut ecology has been disrupted by poor eating habits, antibiotics, or other compromising factors, then bowel function may not be operating optimally to clean itself out.
Due to poor food quality, children are experiencing high rates of indigestion, hormonal disturbances, and early puberty. To help clear out the colon of accumulated waste and buildup, children and adults can do these pink salt flushes daily!
How it works
Pink salt flushes have the ability to wash the digestive system from the inside out.
Air dried salt stimulates the body’s own production of Hydrochloric acid (HCL). When drinking salt, it washes the internal lining of the stomach, small intestine, and large intestine as it moves its way through all of the twists and turns.
This is one of the easiest ways to cleanse the colon as a daily practice.
If you do not suffer from acne, you can absolutely do pink salt flushes to maintain better colon health.
On your first few salt flushes, set aside an extra hour to allow time for elimination.
If you do not have an elimination on your first attempt, it’s okay! This is your indication that you are salt deficient. Continue drinking your salt water in the morning as planned. Your body will reach its threshold where it has stored the amount of salt it needs, and will no longer need to hold onto it. This is when you’ll have your elimination.
Everyone’s elimination is different. For some, they can experience a normal looking bowel movement. For others, they may experience the “flushing effect.”
This effect involves periodic bowel movements in consecutive sequence. Don’t be alarmed, this is a part of the cleansing process! If your elimination contains more water, it’s okay 🙂
For an effective flush, it is best to drink your salt water first thing in the morning before consuming any meals.
Upon rising, fill a large 32oz mason jar with warm water & 1 full Tsp of air dried pink salt.
Stir until salt is dissolved, then drink at one time. Do not sip over time. This will not create a flushing effect.
After drinking, you may lie on your right side to allow efficient salt dumping into the small intestine from the stomach.
Since I have been doing these flushes for such a long time, I do not find that I need to lay on my side anymore. I can drink this water and go about my morning routine with a successful flush. You can see what works best for you.
I’ve noticed that when my water is warmer, I have fantastic eliminations 🙂
If you just cant bare drinking the ocean in a mason jar, then you can add lemon 🙂
