I'm new to this site, I started the fibromyalgia borax treatment and the baking soda/lemon juice for restless leg, Blackstrap molasses for my monthly periods and ACV for everything else, I'm on day four and when I woke up this morning it was the first time in years i was able to just simply get up and get going, I'm not 100% yet but much much better! (Thank you all so much!)
I have a question about Himalayan crystal salt , it sounds very benificial but I havn't been able to find any place that tells if it has Iodine in it.. My Grandmother suffered from a goiter for years before being told to use Iodized salt, after she switched the goiter went away so I would like to keep that in my diet but I dont want to over do it by buying supplements if its already in the Himalayan salt.
if any one knows much about it I would love to know more. It seems most online sites are just fancy ads trying to sell it with out much detail about it. Thanks for your time!

This is important. If you take half a teaspoon of Sea Salt or more in water, don't leave the house, and if you do, don't let out any air, it will not be just air. Sea salt gives very little warnings on the way out. Someone forgot to tell me that.
Hi, I tried to do a salt flush today & was only able to drink 2 cups of the salt water before I became nauseated. (1Tbsp pink salt & 1 qt warm water). Each morning I drink 1 tsp salt water. I'm not sure what caused the illness. It passed after a few minutes. Does anyone have any ideas why I would feel sick? thanks for your help. D from Fl.
Sea salt intestinal cleanse
I used 1 quart filtered water. I boiled it for 10 minutes with 5 teaspoons of pure unrefined sea salt. An hour or two later I headed to the washroom this flushed me out completely and I highly recommend it for clearer skin, mind, clean bowels and more energy.

I tried the sea salt flush, 32 ounces warm water, two teaspoons uniodized sea salt (I added a dash of lime juice and baking soda) this morning and it is very effective. It's challenging to drink that much water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, but it is worth the effort. Will take acidophilus later today with garlic to keep digestive track healthy. Took the day off from work (you probably won't want to go anywhere else, either). Wondering if anyone has tried colon hydrotherapy and the side effects they experienced -- it's pretty expensive and not covered by insurance. Will most likely keep using this remedy as a mini detox about 2-3 times a month on the weekends. Other remedies make work well, but can cause problems when working full time and can't go to the bathroom several times a day.

Resounding YA, Finishing my 4th day of a water fast and became a little worried not having a single BM since the fast began. Cruising the web and came across Sea Salt as a laxative and descided to give it a try. I can tell you it worked for me ! It took about an hour as predicted - awesome! I didn't measure properly and pretty sure I added too much salt - i felt the need and drank another liter of water soon after. Next time I will get the spoon out - and I WILL use this cleanse again. I can continue with the fast now with a clearer mind (and bowel). Hopefully I'll make it the full 10 days, feel good so far. DO stay close to the bathroom.
i discovered sea salt while trying to do the master cleanse. i could only do the cleanse for 2 days because of bad headache. So i decided to just do the sea salt. i seen a reduction in my stomach. i like the sea salt because because it works quickly, unlike a laxative. i informed several people about it and they love it. they also quit taking the fiber colon cleansers. Because the sea salt removes good bacteria, it is a good idea to eat yogurt afterwards to replace the good bacteria.
When the bowels clears itself up, from the sea salt, it actually has the tendency to reduce blood pressure, but only AFTER the bowels are cleared.
You can confirm this observation before and after. Once the sea salt is taken with the baking soda (it helps make it more effective, really), it will flush out the system. Baking soda added to the mix will definitely help from the increased alkalinity.
If you want to know whether your sea salt works or not, a good natural sea salt pH is actually between 7.5 - 8.5. Bad quality sea salt will be below 7, and are of doubtful quality, in my opinion. It is the alkalizing effect of sea salt that helps. Just to be sure, add some baking soda to raise the pH of the sea salt solution. The pH of the resultant solution will often be about 8.0-8.5, which is the standard pH I am looking for. It is better than an edema, which I call it the push method. The sea salt edema is the pull method. Pull method detox better than some water pushing against your bowels and therefore detoxify the body better.
I have been going through a healthy lifestyle change for sometimes now. I've eliminated some things from my diet and added healthier things. While on this transition I decided I wanted an, and tried to find a simpler more cost effective way to do it. I came across a website for a salt water flush. I add 2 teaspoons of un-iodized sea salt to 1 quart of warm water (you can add a little lemon juice to mask the taste) and immediately drank the whole quart. Not to much longer after I finished the quart of water, I was headed to the bathroom. It cleansed me out thoroughly. I don't want to get graphic, but it did the job so good, it was scary. So if you need a good cleanse try it. I would like to advise you that If you have high blood pressure and cannot use salt, talk with your doctor before doing it, but It worked GREAT!
Hi, I have been suffering from constipation even though I drink over 8 glasses of water and take fiber. I decided to try the sea salt flush I read about. It says 2 teaspoons of sea salt and 1 quart warm water and no sooner then you drink it you will be going. Well nothing happened. I just felt even more bloated. Any cures that work fast? I would like to do a cleanse that works fast. Thank you Angel
Sea Salt CURED my Lyme Disease in DAYS!
I had suffered for six months with Lyme Disease before I was diagnosed. It was absolutely horrible. I was going completly insane. I was at the point where I just wanted to die. After the blood work showed I was Lyme positive, I went on doxycycline for one month. That did nothing but make me sick to my stomach, and led me to developing a bad case of candidiasis (which was cured by raw garlic and restriction of sugar, another story for another time). Through this site, I found out about the miracle of sea salt. I bought unrefined sea salt from a local health food store, and when I got home, took a teaspoon (about 5 grams) of it with a glass of water. Within a few hours of ingesting the sea salt, I felt better than I had felt in months - it was incredible! The next few days, I took a teaspoon three times a day every day, and I'd say that within three or four DAYS, my now seven month episode of crippling Lyme Disease was GONE. GONE!!! For a few weeks after, I continued to take a teaspoon once a day, just to make sure that it wouldn't come back.
EVERYONE should be made aware that pure, unrefined Sea Salt, CAN cure Lyme Disease very quickly. Many people are infected with Lyme and don't even know it.
There are a few things you should know about using high doses of sea salt....
-Make sure you drink PLENTY of water.
-It WILL cause diarrhea, so I highly suggest using probiotics to replace the flora that are lost.
-Make sure you get enough potassium to balance out the salt (potatoes, orange juice, bananas..)
-Make sure it is unrefined, raw sea salt (healthy for you, as opposed to refined sodium chloride)
-Stay away from MSG! Ted said that when he took sea salt with MSG, his blood pressure went skyrocketing. I had the same result when I took a spoonful of salt before eating a prepared dinner (lots of MSG).
I'm very positive that this is possibly the best treatment for Lyme.
To sum up everything, taking about 15 grams (about 1 tablespoon or 3 teaspoons) of sea salt throughout the day, for several days, cured my Lyme. It should also be noted that a SINGLE dose of salt (about 5 grams) did more for me than an entire month of doxycycline.

Sea Salt cured the wound in my mouth (accidentally bit my mouth.. hehe) *makes the gums healthy. I think I really got better when I drank salt and hot water when I was sick. I love this website : )
I had to post my results to sea salt in the hopes that it will help others. First, I had planned to cleanse my colon using sea salt, however, I was concerned due to un-medicated high-blood pressure. Thus, I used two-tea spoons the first day in 6 ounces of water. Next day I used a normal spoon size and the third day I used almost two spoon size in the same amount of water. An hour later, i was in the bathroom numerous times and thereafter I was urinating non stop. Also, after inspecting the bowl, I found 5 sandy-crystal like bulbs with green particles floating
in the water. I later realized that legs and hands were not swollen and my blood pressure went radically down. no more pressure. It was amazing. I did more research and spoke to a medical person who said that the sea salt dryed my colon and forced the water in my legs, hand, hearth, and blood to the colon where I eventually let out. Also the green powder glassy was bile and gall stones that the sea salt forced out.
I was not aware of the blotted feeling that I have had for the past year and the blood presssure.
It has been 15 days and I feel great. I am 45 and did not think of the water problem was causing the blood increase due to the extra weight in body. I also reviewed other sites that state liver clense which use salt to flush gall stones.
Thank you EC for your site and all who participate. Please forward any related information to my situation.

Could Ted, Bill (... Or indeed someone else) please try to explain how refined/ common table salt loses its pH (from 7.5 to 5) when seemingly refined. I am a firm believer in the all-round benefits of pure sea salt, but it seems such a HUGE difference/ loss in pH. Also, who gets the benefit in actually refining table salt? Thanks.
Sea Salt for Pneumonia
I have (usually) mild asthma. I visited a dusty wildflower area and contracted fungal pneumonia. The doctor did not apply effective antibiotics, because the infection was fungal, and he initially misdiagnosed it. The infection continued for weeks, and hardened into chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Over the next year I tried many remedies. Then I found an interesting fact. The ocean has millions of antibacterial virions per liter. This is why there are so few bacteria there: predation. I live in an oceanside city, and have no problem getting clean, fresh seawater. I spat some infected sputum into a bottle of seawater and diluted it to invisibility. The idea was that any virus would rapidly multiply by killing and eating the bacteria of my infection. Then over a week, I sprayed the water and inhaled it. My coughing got worse, but then air began to penetrate past the blockages and I began to cough them up; some looked like french fries. I'm now healthy.
I think a similar effort might work with artificial seawater made from organic sea salt. The idea is that it must be organic so that the antibacterial virions would need to be preserved in the salt.
