The Single Most Important Thing You Can Do For Your Health
Salt Water Purge Helps Keep You Healthy — For Pennies A Week
By Richard A. Bowen © 2010
The search has been ongoing: How to purge the body of toxins efficiently, effectively, and economically.
Now you can do it yourself.
This simple salt water purge expunges and eliminates
toxins from your body super efficiently, at home, in private, for literally pennies a week without having to schedule a visit
to the spa, without having to spend a small fortune on colonics, herbal cleansers, laxatives, manipulations, and massage.
Developed by a Johns Hopkins University Hospital doctor in the 1920’s and described in a prominent medical
journal at the time, its effectiveness and down-home practicality eventually lost out to more exotic, extravagant, expensive,
and usually less effective methods. Today thousands are using it to help battle unwise food choices and their resulting toxic
build up. In addition the "salt water" can also effectively eliminate poisons that we take in unintentionally from
the air and water.
Nutrition and an Inwardly Clean
While many wholistic doctors are beginning to acknowledge
the positive results of supplying the body with whole, natural foods, and while this is a definite step toward better health
and long life, without the body being able to absorb nutrition properly, wholesome food cannot supply the nutrition
it is supposed to. For this, the inner parts of the body through which nutrition is absorbed must be clean.
Although fasting, herbal cleansers, natural laxatives, and colonics can be effective for inner
cleaning, this purge cleans the entire alimentary canal from mouth to anus. (Colonics, although similar in some respects,
clean only the colon.) Additionally, this salt water cleanser, after it has cleaned the alimentary canal, begins to clean
at the cellular level, removing toxins and wastes that may have accumulated in and around the cells. Thus, the body can absorb
nutrition from the food, and the cells can absorb the nutrition from the body.
learning about the details, let’s address two frequently asked questions.
salt bad for you?" The salt water solution is the same specific gravity (the same salt content) as the rest of the
saline-based fluids of the body. It therefore passes out of the alimentary canal without being absorbed or retained. Furthermore,
once the system is clean and balanced, using a little salt to flavor your food will do no harm: since the body is functioning
properly, eliminating wastes and absorbing nutrition as it should, the body can easily process salt along with other minerals
"Will elimination become dependent on this
salt water cleanser?" No. If you use the salt water often, preferable every day, the waste elimination process in
the body is given assistance, which is particularly important today when there are so many pollutants and contaminants in
our air, water and soil. At any rate, should you stop using the salt water, your body will go back to eliminating waste as
efficiently (or as inefficiently) as it did before. It’s like wearing shoes: you can walk without them, but wearing
them makes walking easier and safer.
Now for the details.
Salt Water Ingredients and Instructions
On a fasted stomach first thing in the morning before eating or drinking anything, drink one
quart of tepid water into which you have measured exactly two teaspoons of regular table salt. The measurements must
be exact. Measure the water into a measuring cup or a jug with a quart mark (.95 liter) clearly indicated; measure
the salt by placing it into a measuring teaspoon and then leveling it off with the straight, back edge of a knife. (See Figures
1 and 2.) Some teaspoons are full teaspoons when they are rounded. Be sure the teaspoon you are using is meant to be leveled
Drink the quart of salt water in about ten minutes. You do not have
to "chug" it but neither should you sip it for a half hour. Stay near a bathroom, because a short time later the
salt water will be eliminated through your bowels and colon carrying waste material with it.
The Gritty Details
The salt water mixture has the same salt content as the other saline fluids in your body, like
blood, tears and sweat, and therefore passes through it without being absorbed or retained. When the body recognizes the salt
water as an extra "portion," if you will, of waste-eliminating fluid, it says, "Great. I think I will use it
to help eliminate all this waste that is accumulating in here." Once it dumps the waste matter into the salt water, it
flows out of you mixed along with a lot of junk. After that waste is gone, which may take as long as a few months, the body
starts cleaning on a cellular level.
The digestive tract is a pressurized
system. The capacity of the stomach is about two cups (.47 liter) liquid. After drinking one-half of the quart of salt water
(two cups), the pressure created in the stomach opens the valve between the stomach and small intestines (see illustration
below). At this point the salt water flows into the small intestines and begins its cleaning work there. After drinking two
more cups and finishing the quart, the further pressure from the additional two cups opens the valve between the small intestines
and the large intestines, and the salt water begins its cleaning work in the large intestines. Eventually the water is eliminated
through the colon, taking a lot of garbage with it.
The reason we
want the digestive system to be clean is so that it can absorb nutrition. After digestion, nutrition from most food (except
sugar, which is absorbed in the stomach) is absorbed into the blood stream through the walls of the small intestines,
which are lined with small, hair-like brushes called villi (see illustration below). The spaces between the villi
are where nutrition is absorbed. These spaces must be free of waste material in order for vitamins, minerals and nutrients
to pass between them, through the intestinal walls and into the blood stream. When the salt water cleans out the spaces between
the villi, nutrition can be absorbed as it should.
More FAQ’s, More Answers
"Should I take it every day?" Yes, if possible. In addition to promoting healing, most likely
will find you have more energy, feel better, are less prone to many illnesses, including obesity.
"What if the salt water does not come out my colon?" It’s OK; it only means your kidneys
need flushing. Keep taking it; eventually your kidneys will be flushed and it will start to work on your digestive tract.
"How long do I have to wait before I can eat breakfast?"
Because it takes five minutes or less for the salt water to pass out of the stomach and into the small intestines, you can
eat breakfast five minutes after finishing the quart of salt water.
I use sea salt or other non-refined salt?" Yes, as long as it is granulated and measures the same as ordinary
"Can I use purified water?" Yes, as long as it
does not contain any food substances like lemon, protein, or other additives.

a doctor was...35 years ago
