Ooooo!!! Stay away from the epsom salt...it not part of the instructions. The salt water flush is 32oz of H2O with 2 teaspoons of Celtic sea salt......it works too, good luck!!

It's 1 tsp per 2 cups of water. That is what I use for a nose flush and for eye drops, and it reminds me of swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. For the salt flush, I used 2.5 tsp salt in a liter--almost a quart. It just made me thirsty, so I am drinking 2 hot cups of tea now, hoping to get it all going.
On the Master Cleanse website the author says she usually uses a Tbsp for the liter of water.

is it really 1 tsp?? I did my first SWF today and did 2 tsp...I think I would be willing to do it again if it is only 1 tsp! I literally threw it up this morning!

I looked up "salt water flush" on the Mayo Clinic website, and from what I can find, there's not much to worry about. During the cleanse, so much water is being consumed throughout the day that there's no danger of dehydration. Supposedly, the salt water has the same specific gravity as blood, and goes straight through the system. The kidneys don't pick up the water, and the blood doesn't pick up the salt. Any electrolytes lost are replaced with the lemon juice and maple syrup concoction. I would just see how you feel and go from there. I'm nervous about drinking the salt water tomorrow, but I really need this detox! :)

Great emoticon So it's 1 tsp. Sea Salt to 32 oz warm water. Will do maybe twice a week first thing in the am. Yes, I was concerned about kidney damage as well as stripping of electrolytes with daily use.

Hello, it 1 teaspoon of sea salt NOT epsom. I didn't use the sea salt everyday, I alternated with the lax tea. When drinking the SWF it was helpful to use a straw and I imagined I was drinking a salty soup or broth.

Hi Ladies, I was told about the salt water cleanse to be used in conjunction with the MC (Lemonade Cleanser) it's 32 oz but how much sea salt or epsom salt is used? Thanks!

Oh okay. I would like to go healthier, when you work and live around others with bad habits its a fight to stick with the good ones we try to create. But this New Year is going to be different.

Have a gr8 day!

it is the diet people go on once they have found out they have a life threatening decease and choose to go homeopathic root of healing

i think it is going to be a healthier root then the MC
it is very interesting,
i have been working on switching over, it is hard like all foot changes in our lives
so i add a few good habits of macro
while eliminating some bads..
day by day
what more can we ask for right? :)

Hi LittleOneJade,

I don't follow a raw food diet. I happened upon the site when I attempted my last MC. It is a very active site with tons of info. Haven't read up on Macrobiotics, please share.

Obviously, "The Master Cleanser with Special Needs and Problems" by Stanley Burroughs is a good place to start. Mr. Burroughs invented the Master Cleanser, aka the "Lemonade Diet," and I'd recommend reading his book (it's really short) before trying the MC for the first time.

I have also found a website : http://www.mastercleanser.com/ to be a fantastic resource. One of the best features of the site is the forum in which you can communicate with other folks who are also interested in the MC.
